Warning: The images shown as part of the evidence during Derek Sue’s investigation may be troubling to some.
MINNEAPOLIS – From a witness standpoint, firefighter Genevieve Hanson, who was on duty on May 25, could not hold back tears as he described how George Floyd lay on the ground, swollen and spilled “a liquid”.
“I noticed some fluid coming out of George Floyd’s body, and in many cases we see his bladder empty when a patient dies,” said the uniformed officer.
“I can’t tell exactly where the fluid is coming from, but that’s where my mind went. It didn’t move. They control it, but it didn’t move,” he continued.
The Minneapolis woman, who needed tissue and water while testifying, said Floyd was not allowed to provide medical assistance.
“One person was killed,” Hansen said.
Hanson, who described his training as an emergency medical technician, tells authorities to check Floyd’s pulse in one of the voices heard in the video of the event.
The woman called 911.
The second day of the trial of former police officer Derek Zhou, who is accused of killing African-American George Floyd, was heated on Tuesday in Minneapolis with several witnesses testifying to his death. Among them was the young man who recorded the video, a mixed martial arts fighter and firefighter.
“He (Chuv) was looking at us. He had a cold, heartless look. He didn’t care about us. He didn’t care what we said, it didn’t change anything he did,” a young woman named Dornella Frasier recorded the video of the event virally, in which Suv Vin can be seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck on his knees.
Frasier, now 18 and a minor, said the defendant pressed his knee “hard” as time progressed.
Before the young woman, Donald Williams, considered an “important witness”, testified as an expert in mixed martial arts and a defense agent, and knew the techniques of immobilization and strangulation, of which he was heard.
In his statement, Williams explained that he had called the police emergency number to report the agents involved in the incident because he believed he was “witnessing a murder”.
“I called the police to report it to the police … because I was a witness to a murder and felt the need to call the police,” Williams said when asked by Minnesota attorney Matthew Frank. Second day of trial.
The second day of the trial of former police officer Derek Zhou, who is accused of killing African-American George Floyd, was heated on Tuesday in Minneapolis with several witnesses testifying to his death.
The witness stated that he initially tried to justify himself with the agents at the scene who saw Suu Kyi pressing her knee to Floyd’s neck, but they ignored him and he called 911.
In that call, which was re-enacted during the investigation, in the corner where Floyd was destroyed, one can hear Williams telling an operator that a police officer is “trying to kill a citizen” in front of the Cup Foods store.
Suu Kyi faces up to 40 years in prison; Murder in third degree, maximum 25 years imprisonment; And secondary murder, which loses 10 years of independence.
However, since he has no criminal record, he could face a maximum of 12.5 years in prison for the first two charges and up to 4 years in prison for the third.
