The State of Minnesota under Attorney General Keith Ellison has elevated the charges against former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin and charged three more ex-officers in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

Chauvin, Floyd’s arresting officer, now faces the charge of second-degree murder. Three other officers, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas Lane, have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter. (Insider)

Arresting officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee to Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds and ordered him to “relax” as the 46-year-old black man repeated, “Please, I can’t breathe.” Chauvin was arrested on May 26 on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges.

Bail has been set at $1 million for the police officers, according to court records cited by WCCO-TV reporter Jason DeRusha.

Ben Crump, one of the attorneys representing Floyd’s family, issued a statement on Facebook, calling it a “bittersweet moment.”

“We are deeply gratified that Attorney General Keith Ellison took decisive action in this case, arresting and charging all the officers involved in George Floyd’s death and upgrading the charge against Derek Chauvin to felony second-degree murder,” he wrote.

Sadly, these guys will NEVER get a fair trial. I’m NOT IN ANY WAY justifying their actions; they were VERY, VERY wrong and justice needs to be served!!

Ellison is a left-wing Islamist who is as impartial with police officers as Hitler was with the Jews! The officers were wrong and should be disciplined and/or punished. However, this will be a “Kangaroo Court” in every manner! The only purpose for this trial will be to placate the leftists, make an example of these police officers, and attempt to destroy the morale and credibility of police officers!
