6:16 am
>> yes. >> in an unconscious neck restraint is where you render the subject unconscious. >> yes. >> both were committed under minneapolis police policy may 25, 2020. >> yes. >> ultimately if i understand the opinion you formed, you formed the opinion that this was the neck restraint. >> yes. >> you also formed the opinion that this was an unconscious neck restraint, correct? or excuse me, conscious neck restraint. >> yes. >> you've testified on direct
6:17 am
examination that it is contrary to the training you received to place your neck or knee on a subject's neck? >> clarify, contrary our training to indefinitely place your knee on a handcuffed individual for a definite period of time. >> so the issue you take with it is the length of time? >> the issues in one of those again, as you noted, receiving the information, is the present a threat to the officers or others? what is the severity of the crime are you reevaluating and assessing a person's medical condition, critical thinking is
6:18 am
key in terms of why i disagreed this would be appropriate use of force. >> when we talk about the critical decision-making model, that critical decision-making model doesn't only apply to a specific subject under your control, correct? >> talking about the bystanders? >> leave the microphone fact is a little annoyed. >> yes, i'm talking about bystanders, other officers, other things that come into play in terms of the officers decision-making. >> apologize, rephrase the question. >> when an officer is engaged in use of force, i'll just visit yes or no, your attention is not
6:19 am
exclusively necessarily focused on the subject of whom they have in custody? agreed or disagreed? >> the officer engaging use of force maybe you and other matters. >> correct, in fact, that's what the de-escalation model talks about is looking at things from tactical advantage or disadvantage, agreed? >> portions. >> specifically in the policy, de-escalation has to be applied assuming it's faced to do so, right? >> yes. >> all other tactical considerations, agreed? for the policy. >> yes in terms of that decision-making, and officer is not the singular decision-making
6:20 am
process happening in the course of an arrest, agreed? >> yes. >> an officer has to be concerned about other things known to him at that time, agreed? >> yes. >> some of those things would not just be happening between the subject a few minutes ago? >> yes. >> i thought with the subject a few minutes ago, i thought with this person a few minutes ago and now seems to not be resisting but that doesn't mean he can't resist again, right? >> yes. >> even if handcuffed, right? >> yes. >> so even if he is handcuffed, someone could still -- agreed? >> in general, yes. >> someone who is handcuffed can be equally a threat to an officer as someone who's not handcuffed to knock yes.
6:21 am
>> they can spit, bite, they can do all sorts of things, right? >> yes. >> now in terms of the use -- i just want to make sure you formed the opinion that this was an unconscious neck restraint, he is? >> it was a conscious neck restraint. >> okay. now again, this whole de-escalation officers have to take into consideration the safety of the crowd, right? >> yes. >> they have to take into account the reactions of the crowd whether they are angry or hostile or simply watching? >> yes. >> it's all part of the critical decision-making. >> yes. >> they have to be a route of their surroundings generally speaking, being on a busy street versus a park.
6:22 am
>> yes. >> different decision to go into that. >> yes. >> knowing that i have other officers in place and may be at risk as well, right? >> yes. >> there's lots of -- the critical decision-making model is not singular in its application. >> correct. >> lots of information coming in rapidly. >> yes. >> i'm going to show you first -- and i believe by stipulation or without objection i'm going to play a few minutes or see a few seconds of ms. frazier's facebook video. at this time at offer exhibit -- [inaudible] permission to polish. >> received, you may publish.
6:23 am
>> on way to posit here, sorry. this appears to be the time, the picture shown to you earlier, exhibit 19, this is the general time frame the picture appears to be taken from. >> yes -- was that a question? >> this appears to be the image shown, the static exhibit 19, right? >> yes. >> officer chauvin, mr. floyd, and officer tou thao? >> yes. >> it shows the perspective of his frazier's phone?
6:24 am
[background noises] chief, are you familiar with the concept of camera perspective bias? >> i am not. >> now again if i may take that on, steve relation me show the same timeframe, exhibit 1019, the same perspective from mr. king's body cameras. i often 1019. >> objection tonight seen. 1019 is received.
6:25 am
[background noises] it appears to be the same timeframe? >> yes. >> last, chief, i'm going to show one last video. we can take this down. exhibit 1020, a side-by-side of the two. >> any objection? >> no objection. >> 1020 is received. >> permission to publish?
6:26 am
pardon? [background noises] just started over. [background noises] you would agree, chief, that from the perspective of ms. frazier's camera it appears officer chauvin snee was on the neck of mr. floyd?
6:27 am
>> yes. [background noises] >> sorry, i didn't mean to do that. [background noises] would you agree from the perspective of officer kings body camera it appears officer chauvin snee was more on mr. floyd shoulder blade?
6:28 am
>> yes. >> i have no further questions. [background noises] [background noises] >> thank you, your honor. let's start with what you saw and testified in that particular moment in time reviewing officer kueng or former officer kueng's body worn camera, it appears at that moment in time that the knee of the defendant was more toward the shoulder blade, is that right?
6:29 am
>> correct. >> not the time for the amulets had already arrived? >> yes. >> shortly before they loaded mr. floyd onto the gurney. >> correct. >> in your view, was the body worn camera footage everything you reviewed prior to testifying today, did you see the defendant knee anywhere but the neck of mr. floyd up until that time? >> that is correct. >> to the knee of mr. -- the defendant was on mr. ford's neck up until the time you just pointed out? >> yes, i will view the video portion, that is the first time i've seen me and the defendant on the shoulder blade. >> that was right before the paramedic came? >> correct. >> looking at and talking about neck restraints policy, show exhibit 17, please.
6:30 am
[background noises] >> looking at exhibit 17, did your testimony that exhibit 17 is not a trained mpd neck restraint? >> correct, that is my testimony. >> i'd like you to reflect on the exhibits you were shown by defense counsel exhibit 1019 and 1020, the 102nd clip. during that period of time, much later in the time we see here, did you see any indication that mr. floyd was actively
6:31 am
resisting, that term is defined as minneapolis police department policy? >> it did not, i did not observe mr. floyd to actively resist during that time. >> did you in the same time period, any indication mr. floyd being actively aggressive during that 102nd clip you were shown? >> no, i did not observe mr. floyd to be actively aggressive in that video clip. >> did you say he was passively resisting at that time you were shown in the exhibits? >> no. as i saw the video, i didn't even know if he was alive at that time. [background noises]
6:32 am
>> this is a little bit of the testimony on cross-examination about the use of mrt and if i am to understand your testimony, you indicated that hobble is a strap used to connect the handcuffed person, their waist, arms and legs to restrain. >> correct. >> what i thought i heard you say in response to questioning by counsel was that you can do and mrt effectively without using a hobble when you do the same thing with your hand. >> that's correct. >> as i understand in your testimony to essentially be that's what the officers were doing, essentially using maximal restraint technique and not using the hobble? >> correct. >> pursuant to departmental
6:33 am
policy, the hobble is the only authorized use, the only authorized ways to employ the restraint technique? >> correct. >> are you aware the hobble requires a supervisor to report to the scene? >> yes. they need to be at the scene to report. >> that would be away if the hobble wasn't used? >> that sort of technique again for an individual handcuffed, you're basically doing it and because of the severity mr. floyd, you would contact supervisor. >> and aside from that and if you use mrt, you're supposed to adhere to departmental policy, is that right? >> correct. >> the minneapolis departmental policy use require an officer to
6:34 am
do it as soon as the mrt is applied? >> again, because of the severe nature of making sure the individual can brief, they have to get the individual to recovery position to make sure their airway is not obstructed so that is paramount. >> that is required by policy side recovery position is supposed to be instant, is that right? >> immediate. >> you indicated it has to do with breathing, who are familiar with the term positional is 60? >> i am. >> is one of the dangers of leaving them in a prone position handcuffed for too long? >> yes. as i mentioned, you cannot transport people in that position if they are handcuffed with this pressure around their airway or back, the risk of potential for them, it's killing them so the recovery position is
6:35 am
critically important. >> i want to follow up on some of the questions about your own personal training and different officers in different roles within the minneapolis police department, different officers can attend other types of training, is not right? >> yes. >> everybody is required to do in-service training. >> correct. >> regardless of where somebody trained, the rules are the rules, right? >> yes. >> policy applies to all officers? >> yes. [background noises] >> the question was posed regarding critical decision-making model, they need to take in information and that
6:36 am
is true, correct? >> yes. >> we are looking at proper authorized use of force under apartments of policy, is it fair to say the amount of force an officer can use depends upon the content of the subject, the person upon who the force is being used? >> yes. >> for example if you had me and let's say a dangerous hold, would you be able to continue to keep me in the dangerous hold based on something somebody else is doing? >> if you could explain that further. >> for example, if you found me and placed me in a hold that is dangerous but something you see, the judge picks up something to throw at me, with that justify
6:37 am
you using more force on me? >> no. [background noises] in terms of de-escalating the crowd, you indicated there's some potential about the need to de-escalate a group of people, is that right? >> yes. >> a group of people can experience something they may find shocking or upsetting and that can place them in an emotional state, is that right? >> correct. >> you may need to turn your attention to and the escalate the crowd? >> yes. >> one way, if we could show exhibit 18, would one way to de-escalate the crowd experiencing something shocking,
6:38 am
stop doing the things that is shocking them? >> absolutely. >> i have nothing further. [background noises] >> just one question, there are certain circumstances where an officer has to raise situation, evaluate until they can decide the safest way to move forward. sometimes you just have to hold the person, correct? >> yes. >> that's something that happens fairly frequently. >> yes. >> one other question with respect to the policy regarding maximal restraint technique and putting a person, in the recovery position, he said it was immediate, agreed?
6:39 am
>> as soon as you are able to do so, yes. >> that is what the policy says, as soon as you're able to. >> yes. >> there are certain circumstances on which you may use force where the force has to be dealt with before you turn your attention to rendering medical aid, right? >> just, are we still talking about somebody in the recovery position? generally. >> can you repeat? >> certain circumstances where use of force needs to be continued for some reason to deal with something else before you can render medical aid let me give an example. we are in a gun battle. you and i are shooting at each other, you're the cop and i am the bad guy and you hit my partner. i'm going to continue to use my force against you before i render medical aid.
6:40 am
>> and i give a hypothetical? >> briefly. >> sometimes it's unnecessary thing to hold the person safely? >> correct. >> nothing for the. >> thank you so much. [background noises] [background noises]
6:41 am

7:02 am
something that's traineds every year during the regular inservice is that correct? >> correct. >> so for example in 2018, the defendant would have bfn instructed in proper use of force at least twice right once during this 2018fto training program once during regular inservice. >> correct. >> and if we can i would like to at this time just to the witness, to charade exhibit 275. exhibit 275 does that appear to be a handwritten record like a sign-in roster for a particular course? >> it is. >> the particular course includes patroll apps an taught in the academy and defensive tack techs is taught in the economy is that right? an>> correct.

7:05 am
highlight that section, please. and just to define some here you see it says 2018 shotgun and cit training is that right? >> yes. seven hour block -- >> h correct. >> and cit what does that stand for? en>> crisis intervention trainig to deescalation mental health awareness. >> you also see there's a training indicated for procedural justice and narcan training in 2018, correct? >> yes. >> and on the crisis intervention training, this one is a fairly short crisis intervention training block is that right? >> correct. they switched days so one group would go to qualify and other group would ncit and flip-flop after lunch. >> but the original crisis
7:06 am
intervention training block or modelin is thought to mpd offics is longer than seven hours or splitting seven hours. >> yes 40 hours this is just a refresher. >> so if you could move to the next stage please. highlight that portion. the one above it too where it starts at cit2016. all right. and so here you see on the defendant's training records it indicates multiple in hour blocks of instruction occurring in november of 2016 is that right? >> yes. >> is that -- show where the defendant attended paid crisis
7:07 am

>> you're familiar with the minneapolis critical decision making model? >> i am. >> and that model you've seen the circle all seen the circle now few times. that model is used throughout different portion of the training material is that right? >> yes. >> why is that? >> weia wanted to ensure a lot f experience understand that critical decision making model more experience you have the more you can walk through it. but we found it critical that we could learn it and helping them connect dots with information they were receiving on the scene and working through this. that wheel constantly reassessing using procedural justice in the middle so we wanted king the with our field training on program to debrief and recruits and in service so that after they could reassess situation when they're on scene. >> you said that the critical decision making model was usedte to reassess people qhorp who
7:11 am
were going through the fto process. >> training officer program they have the seal training after debrief at the time of the committee service officers as lawyers so we have them debrief using that after -- after scenario. >> so going through this steps of taking in information assessing risk, assessing threats, reassessing evaluating goals, and then relating that to the pillars of procedural justice that's something that any field training officer would beoc required to do with the people that they're evaluating. correct? >> correct. >> in your defensive tactics, training, you are not only showing or having officers learn
7:12 am
sort of nuts and bolts of defensive tactics but also rules of engagement is that light? >> correct. those are contain in the minneapolis police departmental policies is that right? >> yes. >> rules of the rules they apply to everyone they apply to you. they apply to -- recruits. they apply to cadets they apply to people out in field training and experience officers as well is that right? >> correct. >> all right. >> i would like to show you what's been received as exhibit 17. did they ask you officer as you look at exhibit 17, is this a trained technique that's by the minneapolis police department when you were overseeing the training event? >> it is not. >> why not? >> well, according to policy has to be, you know, king the with
7:13 am
mp intraing and what we are conscience and unconscience so for policy -- neck restraint is compressing one or both sides of the neck using arm or leg and what we train -- is using one arm or two arms to do a neck restraint. >> and how does this differ? >> i don't>> know what kind of position that is. so that's not what we train. >> yeah. if you that i can down. thank you i have no further questions. >> you may --
