George Floyd Sought Help With His "Very Last Breath"

When closing arguments are delivered today in the trial of Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd, jurors will have sat through the testimony of seven witnesses for the defense and 38 for the prosecution.

On Saturday around 3 a.m., Santa Rosa Police responded to a home that had been vandalized. The resident of the home told police they woke up to a group of people throwing a pig's head on their front porch and splattering blood on the front of their home, police said in a news release. The statement said the vandals seemed to have targeted the wrong home because Brodd has not lived there for years.

The same suspects are believed to have drenched a statue at a local mall in animal blood about 45 minutes later and left a sign that read, "Oink Oink", the department said.

The suspects, who are accused of felony vandalism, have not yet been identified.

After Brodd's testimony on Tuesday, Santa Rosa Police Chief Rainer Navarro issued a statement saying Brodd's comments "do not reflect the values and beliefs" of his police department.

But the jury did not hear from the former Minneapolis police officer, who on Thursday removed his face covering to invoke his Fifth Amendment right not to testify.

"That isn't an incident of deadly force", Brood said, according to the Associated Press.

Witnesses for prosecutors, who have charged Chauvin with second-degree unintentional murder and other crimes, have said Floyd died from low oxygen after Chauvin pinned him to the ground for an extended period of time.
