We understand that everyone wants former officer Chauvin to be convicted, tarred, feathered, dragged through every street in the United States and be incarcerated until the sun implodes into a white dwarf.
But where is the defense attorney??
Does Minnesota have a rule of criminal procedure that says "the rule against leading questions is suspended when prosecutors conduct redirect questioning in cases where a white police officer killed an African American Man that are televised nationwide?"
If we had a dollar for every leading question asked on redirect in this case we could buy that beach front property in Maine we have our eye on.
And how about this exchange- as an older man is testifying and breaks down crying after seeing the video of George Floyd being arrested and killed, the prosecutor asks "what are you feeling right now?" as the witness sobs uncontrollably and then testifies that his mother recently died, as if that has anything on earth to do with this case.
And the defense?
Nary a peep. No objection to the "how are you feeling right now" question as the man was uncontrollably sobbing.
