7:03 pm
incredibly difficult analysis. you can't limit it to 9 minutes and 29 seconds it started 17 minutes before that 9 minutes and 29 seconds. this was an authorized use of force. as unattractive as it may be. three charges second-degree unintentional murder, murder in the third degree, and second-degree manslaughter minneapolis and cities across the nation are on edge bracing for fallout and demonstrations following the reading of the verdict. this is philly, more than a thousand miles away frank holland is live outside the chauvin courthouse what is the mood like down there? >> reporter: you may be able to hear behind me, people are awaiting this verdict, demanding justice for george floyd here so much anxiety, anticipation and action.

7:07 pm
talking over an our, which both sides did, well over that especially for the defense, is really pushing it with regard to what you should expect jurors to absorb closing arguments are not arguments. they're just a chance for you to tell the jurors what they need to do when they go back to deliberation both sides could have done a better job of that. >> the defense took 2 1/2 hours. >> that's right. >> i talked to a number of people, one of them about five minutes ago, who said they put a lot out there. there's a lot going on i guess that was the idea. >> i think so, shep. here's what you have to remember about the defense. people across the country are divided over police reform and policing in general, even though daunte wright got shot in minnesota, you have the thin blue line flying at police headquarters that tells you a lot of people will accept the arguments that nelson was making. he's not try to go make a reasonable argument. he's trying to appeal to a
7:08 pm
potential unreasonable person on the jury that may hang up any conviction for officer chauvin i agree. murder in second, murder in the third degree, and second-degree manslaughter when a jury is about to deliberate multiple charges, could that be overwhelming for them or is the idea on the prosecution's part to give them a lessen-included, just in case? >> i think they can absolutely be overwhelmed by that process that's why i was frustrated with the state's closing argument typically the way a closing argument is seesaws between teaching jurors to the law, applying it to the facts, teaching the law, applies it to the facts. it's confusing not only do evidences three different charges, but three different charges based on the exact same conduct how are you supposed to decide which one to convict on and how? it's part of a closing argument as opposed to answer. >> david, thank you. i mentioned they're deliberating now, the jury
7:09 pm

7:14 pm
i think they have texas on one side, michigan in the other. what happened in michigan? what went wrong that things happened differently i think part of it could be some of the variants spreading more rapidly than others. so, i think sometimes we wonder whether a place like tex is good or lucky i think it's more lucky than good >> is ditching masks outdoors, as they're doing, something you see on the horizons in this country? >> yes i do see ditches masks outdoors as a possibility, as we vaccinate more people, it becomes a safer place. i think a lot has to do with how much community transmission is out there. when we can get community transmission down to ten cases per 100,000, i think wearing mavs outdoors will not be
7:15 pm
necessary. you may need to wear them still indoors, especially in crowded spaces, but if you're outdoors in the park, walks with your friends and family, it probably will be okay and everybody's vaccinated don't wear a mask. >> don't worry about it. officer brian sicknick died the day after the insurrection, but we never knew exactly how until tonight. the chief medical examiner rules on the manner of death and yet again in america, a weekend of deadly gun violence, as we learn more about the victims in last week's fedex shooting. and where does gun legislation stand in congress? some seasonal businesses are having a really hard time filling positions. the answers to why, next >> announcer: the facts, the
