In the room with Dr. Miller was Dan Herbert, Jason Van Dyke's lead defense attorney.
Is that the same for police feeling disrespected by people? Miller says yes, but that officers are taught not to do so.
Cullen asks if sometimes an action perceived as a threat isn't actually a threat in reality. Dr. Miller says that's possible.
Then, 1.5 blocks away from where Van Dyke eventually shot the teenager, Van Dyke said, "Oh my God, we're going to have to shoot the guy."
On cross-examination, the prosecutor asks if "people sometimes lie to get themselves out of trouble." Answer: Yes.
Van Dyke defense attorneys had wanted to tell the jury about the teen's "wild rampage" around the city before he was shot. The judge last week said no.
When they come back, Jason Van Dyke could take the stand in his own trial.
Van Dyke: "Yes."
"More than 20?"
Van Dyke: "No, and I'm very proud of that."
Van Dyke says he figures #LaquanMcDonald was about 20 feet away at that point. He saw the knife, which the officer had earlier thought had been dropped.
Defense attorney: "And he never dropped it, right?"
Van Dyke: "He never dropped it."
She starts off with, "Why'd you shoot him?"
Van Dyke says the teenager advanced on him with a knife.
Van Dyke says the animation only shows the view from the back of his head.
Does he see the teen raise a knife?
Jason Van Dyke: "My focus was just on that knife. I just wanted him to get rid of that knife."
Van Dyke: "I thought the officers were under attack. The whole thing was shocking to me."
Jason Van Dyke: "You could say I didn't have to go to work that night."
Jason Van Dyke: "In those couple of seconds, he had stopped moving."
On redirect, Jason Van Dyke says, "His back never once turned toward me. He could have made a decisive turn and walked in the opposite direction, ending it all."
Jason Van Dyke: "Yes."
Van Dyke says he kept shooting because he thought #LaquanMcDonald was getting up off the ground.
One more witness: Barry Brodd, a police use of force expert testifying in Jason Van Dyke's defense.
The prosecution had its own use of force expert last week, who said Jason Van Dyke wasn't justified in shooting #LaquanMcDonald.
Tomorrow, the defense will officially rest its case. Then the prosecution will have a chance for a rebuttal before closing statements.
