BREAKING: George Floyd's accused murderer now facing upgraded charge of second degree murder
The remaining 3 ex-officers in the brutal killing of George Floyd are being charged with crimes in connection with his death and an announcement is expected anytime now.
11:18 AM PT-- Derek Chauvin, the cop who was charged with 3rd-degree murder in the death of George Floyd, is now facing an upgraded charge -- second-degree murder ... this according to Minnesota SenatorAmy Klobuchar. Ben Crump, the Floyd family's attorney, said he expects the other 3 will be charged with accessories to murder. The AG is expected to announce the formal charges shortly. As for Chauvin, the maximum punishment for 2nd-degree murder is 40 years. 3rd degree is 25 years. 2nd degree murder does not require premeditation but does require proof of an intent to kill. In Floyd's case, presumably at at point during the nearly 9 minutes Chauvin had his knee on Floyd's neck, he must have realized he could be killing him.

How about 1st degree? 2nd isn't good enough. They're just trying to throw something on the wall to see what sticks. We ALL KNOW THEY WILL play down the charges back to the original negligence charge. 🙄 clubvantae First degree murder. Chauvin knew what he was doing and didn’t listen to Floyd and stayed on his neck
accused This Wednesday June 3rd, at 9:00 pm, for exactly 8 min and 46 seconds, let's go outside our homes and shine a flashlight into the sky. That's the amount of time that Floyd had a knee on his neck, bpleading for his life. stop saying accused. About time this is not a race issue but a police problem. Certain people who hide behind that badge, and abuse their power. This has been going on for years about time they are going to be charged

STOP SAYING IT SHOULD BE RAISED! 1st degree requires planned and intentional murder, whereas second degree requires it either be intentional or reckless and or in the spur of the moment. If it were raised to 1st degree he would most likely walk free because of no strong evidence. This is not a black and white , this is get your knee off every American , the wealthy act like they really care, they don’t know , they just want to talk they really think it’s a black only thing it’s all races

Bangladesh confirms 1st coronavirus death in Rohingya refugee camps It's beyond time to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and any other PDs with similar issues. If you fire the ENTIRE department, maybe others who stand by and mind their own business will speak up next time. Arrest all involved actively or passively.
George Clooney Pens Essay Following Death of George FloydGeorge Clooney is encouraging all Americans to vote in order to fight against systematic racism.

George Clooney Calls Racism a Pandemic in Essay About George FloydIn a powerful, new essay, George Clooney is showing his support for the black community and addresses anti-black racism in America: 'This is our pandemic. It infects all of us, and in 400 years we've yet to find a vaccine.' I thought he died. Huh There is no vaccine. Racism will ALWAYS be there much like rapist and pedophiles. But we MUST make sure racist are not in position of power like cops etc... Becoming a cop should be much harder and firing much easier. But unions stop that from happening. Under Obama, many blacks died, but you were silent. Today, Democrats, like Republicans, come to power through war. You all need power not for the sake of the people. No more America, you are all destroying it leading to civil wlane. You allow Russia and China to destroy America
