TEARS, BODY CAM IMAGES HIGHLIGHT DRAMA IN THIRD DAY OF CHAUVIN TRIAL
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The nationally televised trial of the officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd heads into its fourth day today. But what many feel may be an emotional highlight was reached yesterday. Bystander Charles McMillian broke down in tears as he watched footage of the encounter with four Minneapolis police officers that left Floyd dead last May. McMillian says he cried on the stand because as a man whose mother had died, he could relate to Floyd’s calling for his own late mom as ex-officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee down on his neck. McMillian’s testimony was halted for a while to let him regain his composure.
