(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Report introduced.

(Minneapolis: Omar Jimenez) The testimony today at the murder trial in Minneapolis of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd from Minneapolis police Chief Medaria Aradondo featured; scenes shown from the court. [ARADONDO - says the use of force was not part of our policy or our ethic.] [ER doctor Bradford LANGENFELD@- talks about the cardiac arrest survival outcome; agrees drugs could cause hypoxia.] The testimony from the commander of the police training division that we don't teach that restraint, including the chief, who fired the four officers, discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Laura Coates, Mark O'Mara & former police chief Charles Ramsey about the trial; inset video of the police handling of Floyd in May 2020 shown. [COATES, RAMSEY, O'MARA - offer views on how damaging the police chief's testimony about the use of force not being police policy/training, on the unusual nature of a chief testifying against an officer, what the chief's testimony does to the defense's case, on the causal factors in a death in this manner, on the defense mentioning options for Floyd's death, on the view that Chauvin knew better so why did he do this.]
