Derek Chauvin trial

Published by Katie Bonnett on

NBC News Los Angeles affiliate KNBC-TV featured Erroll Southers of the USC Price School on the first day of the Derek Chauvin trial.

“This case is all about two things: use of force and, most importantly, intent. And while intent may not have been present in the first few minutes of what happened, the intent could’ve been formed later on. Keep in mind: once a person is detained, whether they’re arrested or not, they’re in the care and custody of the officer.”
