Minnesota AG "Elevates" Murder Count Against Chauvin,

• by Tyler Durden

In keeping with the wishes of both the George Floyd's family and the expectations of the public, Minnesota's attorney general has just charged the three other officers seen in the video of Floyd being killed while being taken into custody, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Minnesota AG Keith Ellison, a longtime hero of the Democratic left who was closely involved with Bernie Sanders' campaign for president, has reportedly decided to elevate the charges against Derek Chauvin while also  adding charges of aiding and abetting murder against the other three officers at the scene.

The other officers at the scene included two white man and an Asian man, who will be charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder, while Chauvin's charge is elevated from third-degree murder - a kinda-sorta murder charge that only exists in three states - to second degree murder, along with a manslaughter charge.
