All four officers involved in the murder of George Floyd charged

Minnesota AG Keith Ellison is expected to upgrade the charge against Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis cop who knelt on George Floyd’s neck, to second-degree murder. Ellison is also expected to charge Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane, the other officers involved in Floyd’s death, with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

The nonchalance as a cuffed man begs and takes his last labored breathes... If it doesn't make you feel physically sick to see this and notice the body mechanics used look at his foot... Getting better leverage to achieve maximum pressure and pain.... Then you need to question your humanity... Cause you are like the one standing there doing nothing beyond abetting the murder... As if its no big deal... Just a typical ho hum day..... How many other times have these four worked in concert.... You are watching a wanton and willful choice to snuff out the life of of a man cause you believe your badge obliges you to... And covers u from accountability.... We shall see if in a court room you four are so smug and. Arrogant.... Equal justice for all including you four cowards... You are why good cops have a harder job... And y citizens feel terrorized...

Incorrect charges for the crime. I'd be amazed if they can prove these charges based on the available evidence.

Careful not to overcharge him. This will be hard to prove in and of itself.

If they were charged from day one as they supposed to, all these mess could have been avoided! Very smart indeed!

Appeasing the mob in the hope that they'll stop rioting. Isn't there a word for this situation that starts with a T?

The rioting makes me sad but I also wonder whether or not this would have happened without it.

Hope he's not overcharged to the point where a jury won't convict him. Higher accusations = higher burden of proof. Part of me wonders if the AG of Minnesota is hoping this happens. The media won't blame the black Democrat for overcharging if the cop isn't convicted but they would blame a "r@cist" jury for letting him off. I want the cop convicted, and if possible for the raised charges. I just have some doubts about how high the charges can go. But I'm not an attorney so what I do know?

It's starting to look like they're INTENTIONALLY overcharging the officers to ensure that they're NOT convicted. Imagine the mayhem that will ensue if they fail to secure a conviction.

Obvious show trial and political sacrifices upon the altar of mob opinion. Also, the rioters have nothing to do with George Floyd's murder.

While I agree that he shouldn't have had the guy pinned like that, didn't the coroner's report show no asphyxia, presence of drugs, and a heart condition? I would think they might wanna drop it to negligent homicide if they intend to get a conviction. Also, where was the mass outrage at the death of Tony Timpa, which was worse than this one even?

Bad idea... If you want justice and you want to see this cop go to jail, you should want him charged with manslaughter or 3rd degree. There are countless examples of cops getting away with murder, literally, because they go for 2nd degree charges. The murder of Daniel Shaver is one off the top of my head; that cop was briefly rehired recently after he got off so he could apply for pension, which he is now receiving as a free man. 2nd degree murder is a hard crime to prove in a court. There will need to be material evidence shown in court that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that he not only wanted to kill George but thought about it before hand.

Well the AG just all but assured this Ahole walks from this. You may have been able to prove 3rd degree and almost certainly manslaughter but, in order to convict on 2nd degree they will have to prove intent and that is a very high bar to meet. I just don't see them being able to prove that in court.

He was having difficulty breathing while he was standing up, the cops are probably innocent. That's fentynal for you.

I would be worried about the charge being upped, the chance of it not sticking is better. You can definitely prove this man's negligence leading to Floyd's death, but that he had intent to do so takes a much greater burden of proof.
