Eric Nelson said : “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch". The judge denied Nelson's verbal motion for a mistrial, noting he trusted jurors are following his instructions to avoid all news about the trial. "A congresswoman's opinion really doesn't matter a whole lot," Cahill said. The protests followed the shooting death of 20-year-old Black motorist Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, a Minneapolis suburb, by former police officer Kim Potter during a traffic stop. She later resigned from the Brooklyn Center Police Department. Prosecutor Jerry Blackwell counters defense's 'stories' in rebuttal. Attorney Jerry Blackwell delivered the rebuttal for the state Monday afternoon, reviewing what he characterized as "stories" told by the defense to the jury. He referred to trial testimony that in half or more cases where someone has died of insufficient oxygen, there's no sign of that in body tissues during autopsies. Blackwell also made a point of repeatedly noting the prosecution argument that "subdual, restraint and compression of the neck" caused Floyd's death. And he sought to focus the jurors on testimony from the prosecution's star witness, Dr. Martin Tobin, an expert in the physiology of breathing. Tobin testified that a healthy person would have died if subjected to the same restraint and pressure as Floyd. Of police officers who do not provide medical aid for a suspect who passes out under pressure by arresting officers, Nelson said, "That's wrong". Answering defense arguments that bystanders posed a potential threat to Chauvin and the other officers, Blackwell said the group, including young children, were "torn" between concern and inability to help Floyd, and respect for the Minneapolis Police Department. "They didn't deserve to be called unruly, because they weren't," he said. Blackwell also displayed for jurors an exhibit with one dot for each of the 17,026 days of George Floyd's life. "He was living, he was breathing, he had a being, every day," despite the medical conditions and drug issues the defense argued caused his death. The difference, argued Blackwell, was that on the last day of Floyd's life, "deadly force was applied" by Chauvin. Blackwell countered Nelson's arguments that Chauvin and other officers had to make quick decisions during the struggle saying, "There was no split seconds, there was no moment to moment". Cahill interrupted Blackwell twice, once to tell him not to repeat subjective descriptions of defense arguments as "stories," and again to strike from the record a statement that the defense was "shading the truth". However, Blackwell got the last word as he ended his rebuttal. "You were told, for example, that Mr. Floyd died because his heart was too big," he said. "The truth of the matter is that the reason George Floyd is dead is because Mr. Chauvin's heart was too small". Defense attorney Eric Nelson gives closing argument: 'The state has failed to meet its burden of proof' Chauvin took his face mask off during the first part of closing by lead defense attorney Eric Nelson, who took aim at the state’s case for about two and half hours before Judge Peter Cahill called for a lunch break. Most of Nelson’s argument focused on urging the jury to consider the totality of the events of the evening of May 25, 2020 — not just the nine minutes and 29 seconds that the state argued is the heart of the case and the charges against Chauvin. Nelson walked jurors through his views on the videos, police policies and cause of Floyd’s death. "The proper analysis is to take those 9 minutes and 29 seconds and put it into the context of the totality of the circumstances. The proper analysis starts with what did the officers or what would a reasonable officer know at the time of dispatch," he said. Nelson, who noted Floyd’s large size at over 200 pounds, said Chauvin followed the policies in place at the time of Floyd’s death, including the knee restraint he used — something barred by Minneapolis police in the wake of Floyd’s death. Nelson said Floyd’s death was "tragic," but argued Chauvin did not cause his death. He drew the jury’s attention to Floyd’s history of drug use, including fentanyl and methamphetamine, and his heart problems. Nelson also took aim at and star witness for the state who testified that Floyd died of asphyxia, or low oxygen, because of the police restraint. Noting that Tobin had many hundreds hours to review videos and other evidence, Nelson argued Tobin was misleading the jury by giving an incomplete picture of the struggle. "His entire testimony is filled with theory, speculation, assumption,” External link

Eric Nelson said : “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch". The judge denied Nelson's verbal motion for a mistrial, noting he trusted jurors are following his instructions to avoid all news about the trial. "A congresswoman's opinion really doesn't matter a whole lot," Cahill said. The protests followed the shooting death of 20-year-old Black motorist Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, a Minneapolis suburb, by former police officer Kim Potter during a traffic stop. She later resigned from the Brooklyn Center Police Department. Prosecutor Jerry Blackwell counters defense's 'stories' in rebuttal. Attorney Jerry Blackwell delivered the rebuttal for the state Monday afternoon, reviewing what he characterized as "stories" told by the defense to the jury. He referred to trial testimony that in half or more cases where someone has died of insufficient oxygen, there's no sign of that in body tissues during autopsies. Blackwell also made a point of repeatedly noting the prosecution argument that "subdual, restraint and compression of the neck" caused Floyd's death. And he sought to focus the jurors on testimony from the prosecution's star witness, Dr. Martin Tobin, an expert in the physiology of breathing. Tobin testified that a healthy person would have died if subjected to the same restraint and pressure as Floyd. Of police officers who do not provide medical aid for a suspect who passes out under pressure by arresting officers, Nelson said, "That's wrong". Answering defense arguments that bystanders posed a potential threat to Chauvin and the other officers, Blackwell said the group, including young children, were "torn" between concern and inability to help Floyd, and respect for the Minneapolis Police Department. "They didn't deserve to be called unruly, because they weren't," he said. Blackwell also displayed for jurors an exhibit with one dot for each of the 17,026 days of George Floyd's life. "He was living, he was breathing, he had a being, every day," despite the medical conditions and drug issues the defense argued caused his death. The difference, argued Blackwell, was that on the last day of Floyd's life, "deadly force was applied" by Chauvin. Blackwell countered Nelson's arguments that Chauvin and other officers had to make quick decisions during the struggle saying, "There was no split seconds, there was no moment to moment". Cahill interrupted Blackwell twice, once to tell him not to repeat subjective descriptions of defense arguments as "stories," and again to strike from the record a statement that the defense was "shading the truth". However, Blackwell got the last word as he ended his rebuttal. "You were told, for example, that Mr. Floyd died because his heart was too big," he said. "The truth of the matter is that the reason George Floyd is dead is because Mr. Chauvin's heart was too small". Defense attorney Eric Nelson gives closing argument: 'The state has failed to meet its burden of proof' Chauvin took his face mask off during the first part of closing by lead defense attorney Eric Nelson, who took aim at the state’s case for about two and half hours before Judge Peter Cahill called for a lunch break. Most of Nelson’s argument focused on urging the jury to consider the totality of the events of the evening of May 25, 2020 — not just the nine minutes and 29 seconds that the state argued is the heart of the case and the charges against Chauvin. Nelson walked jurors through his views on the videos, police policies and cause of Floyd’s death. "The proper analysis is to take those 9 minutes and 29 seconds and put it into the context of the totality of the circumstances. The proper analysis starts with what did the officers or what would a reasonable officer know at the time of dispatch," he said. Nelson, who noted Floyd’s large size at over 200 pounds, said Chauvin followed the policies in place at the time of Floyd’s death, including the knee restraint he used — something barred by Minneapolis police in the wake of Floyd’s death. Nelson said Floyd’s death was "tragic," but argued Chauvin did not cause his death. He drew the jury’s attention to Floyd’s history of drug use, including fentanyl and methamphetamine, and his heart problems. Nelson also took aim at and star witness for the state who testified that Floyd died of asphyxia, or low oxygen, because of the police restraint. Noting that Tobin had many hundreds hours to review videos and other evidence, Nelson argued Tobin was misleading the jury by giving an incomplete picture of the struggle.
