Morries Hall’s attorney believes any question he would be asked could lead to self-incrimination.
Judge Cahill told the defense to submit questions on Thursday so Hall and his attorney can determine if the questions would lead to self-incrimination.

Prosecution: Is this an MPD trained neck restraint?

Mercil: No sir

Prosecution: Is this an MPD authorized restraint technique?

Mercil: Knee on the neck would be something that does happen in use of force that isn't unauthorized. ImageImageImage

“Just because they're are speaking doesn't mean they are breathing adequately.”
