Chauvin won't take the stand

if he does, I think the prosecution could ask him about his previous disciplinary actions. Ask him if he heard people telling him to let up on Floyd. Ask him why he did it. If he were smart, he would ask to just plead guilty to one of the lesser murder charges, B4 the jury goes into deliberation. But he ain't that smart. If he were smart, he never would have kneeled on Floyd's neck in the 1st place. But noooooooooooooo, Chauvin, the bully, just couldn't resist the aggressive impulse to put a black man in his place, subordinate to a white cop.

1. Chauvin did because he could. The idea that he might get off is an anathema.

2. He did it to show he could

He had an audience who couldn’t make him stop so he continued.

3. Criminal defendants rarely do (guilty or innocent)

If it isn't a case of self-defense, or mistaken identity, etc... there's rarely a good reason to do so.
