The three Minneapolis police officers who failed to intervene while George Floyd was killed were charged on Wednesday with aiding in his death, and officials pressed a more severe charge against Derek Chauvin, the officer who pinned Mr. Floyd to the ground with a knee for nearly nine minutes while he pleaded, “I can’t breathe.”

Chauvin is now charged with 2nd-degree murder. Prosecutors will have to prove he had intent to kill Mr. Floyd.

I posted this elsewhere, but I'll post it here too.

All four police officers in the killing of George Floyd now will face charges, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said Wednesday.

"Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is increasing charges against Derek Chauvin to 2nd degree in George Floyd’s murder and also charging other 3 officers. This is another important step for justice," the Democratic senator tweeted.

2nd degree charges carry proof of intention to affect the death of.

The other 3 officers have been charged with aiding and abetting a 2nd degree murder which carries the same punishment as Chavin's charge of 2nd degree murder.

As reprehensible as this whole thing was, I'm sure if it meets the legal criteria for second-degree murder.

I'm glad they were all charged.

No matter how awful his actions, he needs and deserves, as do we all, the forgiveness of God.  My prayer for him is that he seek Jesus and accept the forgiveness Jesus bought for all of us by the beating he took, by His suffering on the cross.  Jesus shed His holy blood for all humankind - including Derek Chauvin.

May he meet the Savior of the world soon, if he has not already.

Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

So she should become destitute and homeless because of her husband's behavior?
