In a rare move, a US Minneapolis Police chief Medaria Arradondo has testified that the officer accused of murdering Black man George Floyd broke rules on respecting the “sanctity of life” on the sixth day of the trial.
He said former police officer Derek Chauvin went against police training by kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes.
Chauvin has been charged with murder and manslaughter in the death of Floyd, who was unarmed in May of last year.
