HOWABOUTTHAT? Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison has increased charges against Derek Chauvin to 2nd degree in George Floyd’s murder. He also charged Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter…

This is an important step for justice...



The charges came against the backdrop of a country in chaos following Floyd's death, which set off a string of sometimes-violent protests in Minneapolis that spread from coast to coast.

All officers who were at the scene when Floyd died while Officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes -- in broad daylight on a city street while the victim said he couldn't breathe -- have now been charged. Chauvin was charged last Friday with third-degree murder and manslaughter, and voices have been raised since then with calls for the rest of the officers involved to face charges just as serious.

An independent autopsy at the request of family attorneys Benjamin Crump and Antonio Romanucci found Floyd died of asphyxiation, not only from pressure applied to his neck in the video, but also from officers on his back. Knees on his back compressed his chest, forcing him to be unable to draw breath as another officer knelt on his neck, according to autopsy results released by the attorneys.

A forensic pathologist from the University of Michigan said the manner of death was homicide.

With that information, the family wanted first-degree murder charges against Chauvin, and charges to the fullest possible, extent against the other officers on the scene. "They want equal justice for African Americans because black lives matter and George Floyd's life matters," Crump said when the autopsy was released.
