Expert did not perceive bystanders in Floyd arrest as 'threat'

Reuters, 08 Apr 2021
Los Angeles Police Department Sergeant Jody Stiger appeared as a prosecution witness at former officer Derek Chauvin's murder trial on Wednesday, telling jurors "no force was reasonable" with George Floyd in the prone position and bystanders were not acting in a threatening way. "I did not perceive them (bystanders) as being a threat... because they were merely filming and they were - most of it was their concern for Mr. Floyd."
