Chauvin Trial: First thing Chauvin does is grab Floyd by the neck with both hands.

Last edited Sat Apr 3, 2021, 06:46 PM - Edit history (1)

Then he throws his camera under the car and holds Floyd in blood choke with left hand at carotid artery while pushing with his left shoulder on his head.

Chauvin then sees Tao on drivers side of car, tries to subdue Floyd for additional 3 or 4 seconds then stops the pressure. Removes Floyd from car and puts his neck under his knee until he is asked to remove it by the paramedic, so paramedic can reach the carotid artery to check pulse.

Here is the evidence straight from the officer's cameras:

Chauvin's camera showing very first contact with Floyd. [link:?t=27297|

Tao's camera showing view from drivers side/rear door: 7:15:26 (actual time: 20:18:28)

[link:?t=26126|]]

Chauvin throws camera off, right hand moving from chest downward, at 20:18:32 (Actual time on officer's camera), Notice his reaction upon seeing Tao at open door across car. Left arm around neck.

A couple of minutes of video pretty much lays out the case...in my mind.

2. He absolutely removed his bodycam, he probably has used

the ole camera falls off in the struggle trick before.
those body cams are designed to stay put during a struggle.
He also could have grabbed it and stuck it back on as Mr Floyd was not fighting back and was handcuffed.
I bet he has used this tactic before.

6. Watch his right hand closely and you can see it plainly

he reaches up to his chest in a split second and knocks the camera off intentionally, watch at the 1:34 mark
WATCH HIS RIGHT HAND CLOSELY

7. The view from across the car, Tao's camera, is telling.

I wish the prosecution put a little effort into telling the jury what these videos are showing. They have a lot of video but the jury needs to have someone point out to them exactly what is going on.

Comparing the time on Tao's camera with when Chauvins camera shows the bottom of the car pin points the exact moment.

Chauvin's intent was to put the situation under control using illegal choke holds but he was thwarted by Tao and Tao's camera. Had to resort to killing Floyd on the street....did he think he was out of sight behind the wheel? Didn't he realize the "Crowd" of 7 people could see he was breaking every rule in the book?

The picture of him looking up to see Tao across the car is priceless.

5. He threw off his bodycam because he knew he was going to commit a crime?
