Eric Nelson, the attorney representing Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd, revealed a connection between himself and two others that have been involved in the trial during closing arguments on Monday.
Nelson revealed that he, Darnella Frazier, a teen bystander who captured viral footage of the arrest of Floyd that preceded his death, and Minneapolis Police Department Chief Medaria Arradondo attended the same high school.
He made the disclosure while trying to focus on the differences between perspective and perception before contrasting the different views of the arrest offered by witness testimony and that of Chauvin during the events that led up to him pinning Floyd to the ground that day and when he restrained him.
“Your perception is how you interpret what it is you see and what it is you experience … These are the things that make us who we are. Three people in this trial went to the same high school: me, Darnella Frazier and Chief Arradondo,” he began.
“We all went to the same high school, obviously at different times. … We had the same perspective, sat in the same classrooms, saw the same chalkboards or whiteboards, the same perspective, but our perception of our experiences there is going to be much different,” he continued.
