Trial begins for ex-officer Derek Chauvin charged in death of George Floyd

In his opening statement, prosecutor Jerry Blackwell played the full cell phone video that first catapulted this case into national consciousness. The defense attorney pointed to other videos, including officers’ body cameras, that he says will show the full interaction. The first witness, a 911 dispatcher who said she was watching a live video feed, said she felt “something wasn’t right” and reported the incident.
