A use-of-force expert called by prosecutors testified Monday that former Inglewood Officer Jeremy Morse used unreasonable force when throwing a teenager atop a police car but that his actions didn't amount to a crime. Los Angeles Sheriff's Department Cmdr. Charles Heal was considered a key witness for the district attorney's office, which is trying to prove that Morse used excessive force to subdue then-16-year-old Donovan Jackson during the videotaped incident last summer.
