Derek Chauvin's murder charge was raised from 3rd degree murder to 2nd degree murder, which can carry a penalty of up to 40 years. It appears as though the other 3 officers who were with him are being charged as well with aiding and abetting second degree murder - the other two who were holding George Floyd down, and the third who was standing guard.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is charging the three other officers involved in the George Floyd killing, and Derek Chauvin will now face a second degree murder charge, Senator Amy Klobuchar confirmed on Wednesday.

Keith Ellison is the prosecutor. Same Keith Ellison who
was in the DNC, accused of physically abusing his partner.

Ellison is also freinds with a criminal leader of Antifa
from Oregon, Luis Marquez. Ellison will soon have
to reveal that Floyd has a long criminal past, and
this will become the circus that surrounds the
election.

To late I think. I was impressed at how quickly the four of them were fired and not just put on ''administrative leave'' or given a ''desk job'' while their salaries continued. I think that that measure was considered enough to staunch any up coming protests.

Dint work.

Now, rather that demonstrating just how the police system wants to correct these kinds of incidents, it has taken on the appearance of bowing to terrorism.

These changes in charges are way to late.

Yeah, just like how they didn't GAF when Justine Damond was murdered in the same city by officer Mohamed Noor after she called the police to report a woman being assaulted.
Regardless, Chauvin needs to be held responsible.

Yep. It's messed up. People wanted justice. Chauvin murdered a man and he got arrested. And now the others. Will the rioting stop? Nope.

Something wrong in the air. Everywhere.

He could have been a convicted murder who had served his time and it still doesn't give them cops one reason to kneel on his neck until he was dead.

Why would opportunists care about her? They whole point of being one is to take advantage of a situation.

Why can't people still protest? Did someone suspend the First Amendment?

Yes, George Floyd was a career criminal and drug user who, among other things, robbed a pregnant woman at gunpoint, and prior to his death was being arrested for trying to use counterfeit money (or pass a fake check), but that in no way whatsoever excuses what Chauvin did. They're both criminals, but Chauvin is still alive to be held accountable.

I agree, but it will play into Chauvin's use of force.

Just the way it is.

That wasn't a use of force, that was murder.

The protests, aka, riots started less than 24 hrs after Floyd's death.

Now that charges are filed they should stop.

At least if this was really about justice.

Never said it does. What i said is that Ellison will not be able
to hide that like the media is doing.

I suppose you already know that a jury will decide.

I'm 99% certain that he will be convicted and sentenced. I'm leaving off the last 1% for human stupidity.
