The former Santa Rosa home of Barry Brodd, who testified as a defense witness in the Derrick Chauvin murder trial, was smeared with pig's blood and had a severed pig's head dumped on the front porch in an early Saturday morning vandalism attack.

Another act of vandalism took place 45 minutes later at Santa Rosa Plaza Mall, where a large hand statue was also smeared in pig's blood. The vandals also left a sign in front of the statue that included a picture of a pig and the words "Oink Oink", police said.

Critics of the police often refer to officers as "pigs". The victim's house was the previous residence of Mr.Barry Brodd.

In a statement, the Santa Rosa police wrote that it "appears the suspects. were targeting Mr. Brodd for his testimony".

Now Czech authorities believe the same men were involved in the bombing of a warehouse in Vrbetice, in the east of the country. Russian Federation denied involvement but some 300 diplomats were sent home in subsequent tit-for-tat expulsions.

"Mr Brodd has not lived at the residence for a number of years and is no longer a resident of California". No arrests have been made, and the police are asking for tips to help them identify those responsible.

Fox News Contributor Ted Williams on what he expects from the closing arguments in Derek Chauvin trial. Bystander videos of Floyd's arrest went viral showing Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds, including a period of time after Floyd had lost consciousness and was found to be without a pulse.

In a statement released after Brodd's testimony, Santa Rosa Police Chief Rainer Navarro distanced himself from his department's former officer.

Brodd told the trial: "I felt that Officer Chauvin's interactions with Mr. Floyd were following his training, following current practices in policing and were objectively reasonable". "It's more of a challenge to, again, put yourself in the officer's shoes to try to make an evaluation through what they're feeling, what they're sensing, the fear they have, and then make a determination". It is believed that the location was targeted by mistake, with the perpetrators not knowing that Brodd had moved away several years ago. He is now a consultant who specializes in use-of-force tactics.

"That isn't an incident of deadly force", Brood said, according to the Associated Press. "That's an incident of an accidental death".
