A black witness to the George Floyd killing, Donald Williams II, shut down ex-cop Derek Chauvin’s white lawyer, Eric Nelson, for trying to portray him as an angry black man.
Williams did not take the bait, and replied: “I grew control and professionalism.”
Nelson tried to corner Williams: “You said, ‘Like, I really wanted to beat the sh*t out of the police officers.’ You were angry.”
Williams then destroyed Nelson: “No, you can’t paint me as angry. I was in a position where I had to be controlled. A controlled professionalism. I wasn’t angry because I stayed on the curb.”
Nelson then tried to have the black man’s testimony removed from the record.
