WATCH: Fox Analyst Advises Prosecution Against Playing Tape of George Floyd’s Killing
This week in Minnesota, the trial of Derek Chauvin will begin. The officer gained infamy last year after he was videotaped kneeling on the neck of George Floyd. The incident resulted in mass protests against police brutality all around the country.
The defense team of Chauvin will have a tough time defending their client. They have, however, already shown a willingness to go as low as they need to.
For News, not surprisingly have taken the side of Chauvin’s lawyer. During a Monday segment, legal analyst Leo Terrell advised the defense against playing the damning video.
Terrell began, “I think it’s a powerful defense. The defense did a great job of telling the jurors that there’s a totality of evidence, other film. And what the prosecution did that was wrong, they withheld evidence from the jury.”
The Fox analyst continued, “And I think the prosecution, by playing that 9-minute tape over again, they’re going to make the jury numb to it!” he warned. “You need to have Minneapolis Police Department say [Chauvin’s] knee was out of policy. If they don’t say that, they’re in trouble.”
Terrell closed his comments, “I heard no evidence of any type of intent on the part of the officer to kill George Floyd. I think the prosecution overcharged. It’s going to be a very tough case for the prosecution on those higher charges.”
