1:02 am
i don't know what but something. george floyd was pinned for so long the scary initially thought the surveillance camera perched across the street had frozen jurors heard a recording of her call for help something out of the back of this. man. the prosecution also played witness video for nearly 10 minutes and it flew back children to get off of him and he begged for his mother the jury also heard witnesses plead for mercy on his behalf. as though the rules laws. they were all no. doubt were floored. when well good. police charged with killing unarmed black people a really convicted civil rights activist say children is not on trial alone that this case is about fairness and black humanity in the united states.
1:03 am
we are here to see the case of a man their views disney to lynch a man and then blame the man what a man she. knew him during opening arguments prosecutors insisted jovan used excessive force and will prove it with key witnesses including the minneapolis police chief children's defense team put the blame on floyd they're insisting that or health and drugs led to his death they urged jurors to ignore calls for social justice. evidence that you will see in this case during this trial it is i agree with counsel for the state it is nothing more than there is no political or social cause in this court or civil rights activists say this case is about justice for george floyd but they also hope it will lead to equal protection
1:04 am
for an armed black americans who encounter police. that's cause of it to washington d.c. and. stefan this is expected to be a long and emotional trial what were the main takeaways for day one. they won was that everything went as expected prosecution making the case here that there itself and had no reason no cost legitimate cost to treat george floyd the way he did it that he violated his police training and current minneapolis police department policies by treating mr floyd as he did and the defense of course tried to muddy the water try to deflect that a little bit saying there is more evidence than just the video of the prosecution pushing video because of course we're all prone to like hey i saw it with my old
1:05 am
eyes i believe what i see is what i see and the defense is trying to make the case that depending on what you see or no never mind what you see there there's more evidence which will this what they say prove that mr sheldon is not guilty as you said for weeks minimum. catered for this trial we'll see how long it lasts it's going to be very very interesting 4 weeks that's for sure and more broadly speaking we know that the prosecution and the defense have both insisted that this trial is not about race when it's not about the police of the united states either but many outside of this courthouse as well as family disagree does this give us an indication about where this case will go. yeah because it's of course of both it's about racial justice it's about this whole trial is a result of the so-called summer of racial reckoning it's about police brutality
1:06 am
it's about creating and having created the death of george floyd having created a new awareness or a refocusing of white people that is most important of also white people that police work till it is a reality for for african-americans more so than for anybody else that injustice in the justice system in america exists is that to us so it is all about this this trial is is very very very very instrumental to actually implemented change in this society in the justice system in police departments and they have partially begun to reform themselves because politicians and police departments and community leaders they're all on their immense pressure to make real changes stuff on you know give us a sense of how significant this is for people in the united states because as you say this has to be about the entire legal system in america on trial.
1:07 am
you are americans are keenly aware that the entire world is watching and literally watching you can you could today click on any t.v. program you wanted to if it wasn't a soap opera and it was the there are children so it is very much in the in the conscience of the american people of white people of any minorities in the united states and again that is the point knowing that the entire world is watching and knowing what this video what we all saw when george floyd died after get this 9 minutes and 29 seconds not 849 which became a symbol but it's now the prosecution said it's 9 minutes and 29 seconds that mr sheldon and others had their their legs are they need on his neck and other body parts of mr sheldon brought him to death like because of this so yes the world is watching the american people are watching and they're keenly aware that there's a huge interest and this is that this is significant and that this trial itself
