These cases are not easy: Minnesota AG determined to convict former Minneapolis police officers in George Floyd case
The now-former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with unintentional second-degree murder in addition to third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Three other officers involved in the incident have been charged with aiding and abetting both second-degree murder and second degree manslaughter. Still, Ellison says he is committed to prosecuting the former Minneapolis police officers to the fullest extent of the law. For 100 years after that, we were held as second-class citizens -- including in the north, like in Detroit and Minneapolis. His message comes just days after Minnesota agreed to ban police chokeholds and neck restraints following the killing of Floyd.
