[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.]
