I called this about 2 months ago - The official training manual being used as the main defense against Chauvin's charges. The argument is that Chauvin did what he was taught/required to do.

(Fix the DOT)

If this results in an acquittal, I can see the PD and the City being liable for a huge amount of money, both for Floyd's family and for all 4 x Officers.

I don't know? I have never been a Minnesota attorney. But check this, as well as the link to punitive damages in their statute.

https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/573.02


So, you got a convicted felon for armed home invasion in Texas, on parole who comes to Minnesota, (check the video) he's out passing a stack of counterfeit $ 20s, with a bunch of drugs that will put him back in the joint and police are called. He swallows the drugs before the police search him, then stuggles with the cops 3 times before they put him in the "recovery position". They called EMS while he was still fighting because he was displaying ExD. They didn't choke him.

So what's the actual damages. He lost his future back when he started cooking meth. Punitive damages? The cops didn't kill him and followed their training for ExD.

However, it is Minnesota and that state has stood our Const system on it's head. You're probably right. Although not proper, his heirs will get millions.

Umm Hmmm. I feel confident this is consistent with what I was trying to say earlier in the thread.

One would think that besides disqualifying the county prosecutor and his office from involvement in the case, the judge would have referred their actions to the state bar for review?

Nothing is going to get fixed in this country until those lawyers who engage in improper activities start to have their law licenses reviewed and in cases where their actions violate professional responsibility rules - they get disbarred.
