A high-ranking official in the Minneapolis Police Department called Derek Chauvin and his fellow officers’ use of force on George Floyd “totally unnecessary” and said it should have stopped when Floyd was pinned to the ground, according to his testimony Friday at Chauvin’s murder trial.

Prosecuting attorney Steve Schleicher asked Richard Zimmerman, a lieutenant in the homicide division and the 19th witness to testify at Chauvin’s trial, what he thought about how the officers handled Floyd, based on Zimmerman’s review of the body camera footage of the incident.

“Directing your attention [to the] moment when Floyd is placed on the ground,” Schleicher said, “what is your view of that use of force during that time period?”
