George Floyd's brother, a use-of-force expert and a cardiologist testified today in the trial of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin.

George Floyd's brother, a use-of-force expert and a cardiologist testified today in the trial of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin.

George Floyd's brother testifies: Philonise Floyd offered a heartfelt testimony as prosecutors sought to humanize Floyd, the 46-year-old Black man who died last May after Chauvin kneeled on his neck and back for more than 9 minutes.

He told the court that his elder brother George Floyd was a mama's boy and a loving person when they were growing up in Houston.

Use-of-force expert says Chauvin's actions were unreasonable: Seth Stoughton, a use-of-force expert, former police officer and associate professor of law at University of South Carolina, said Chauvin's actions represented deadly force and were unreasonable.

Court is adjourned until Tuesday morning when testimony is expected to resume in the trial of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin.

The collaboration of local, county, state and federal law enforcement working around the Derek Chauvin trial known as "Operation Safety Net" has moved into phase three of their security presence earlier than anticipated after Sunday’s police shooting of Daunte Wright in nearby Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said Monday afternoon.

“We have been preparing to ramp up for the close of the Chauvin trial, and we are prepared to ramp up law enforcement presence across St. Paul and across the Twin Cities,” Arrandondo said.

Law professor Seth Stoughton, a police use-of-force expert, testified that it was not necessary to place George Floyd in the prone position once he was taken out of the back of the police car by the officers.

Stoughton, who reviewed the evidence in the case and is being paid to testify as an expert witness, said that the prone position can be "useful" for officers trying to handcuff a suspect.

George Floyd was a "big mama's boy" who taught his family how to treat their mother with respect, his brother Philonise Floyd testified today.

Philonise Floyd said his mother and brother shared a special bond.

Philonise Floyd described his brother George Floyd's life and what it was like growing up with him during his testimony today.

George Floyd's brother, Philonise Floyd, has now taken the stand in the trial of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin.
