they also have murder 3 to considerWell. I have a prediction watching this latest body cam video. This isn't going to end well for Team George or Minneapolis. Manslaughter but not Murder 2 in my opinion.
The cop holding his legs has asked "should we roll him on his side" at least twice so far. I think that was the rookie cop?
I think it was Officer Lane that approached the car with gun drawn. I've been watching the HLN feed so it's a little delayed from the YouTube one because they stop and talk and of course commercials and the police procedure expert on there was talking about that today.True - I need to look up the charges and definitions.
I now see though they they didn't pull him out of the car, he was pushing himself out the right door. So that adds more info and further refines the picture in my head of what was happening. I'm torn and still open to see what other evidence is presented. There's no way 9 min and 29 seconds on someone's neck when they had stopped struggling was rational, required or humane and it was clear there was a blatant disregard for George's life by the cop though. AND - the fact that Chauvin approached the car with his gun drawn was (to me) an unnecessary escalation of a situation before anything had really started.
(Full disclosure - my dad was a retired Philly cop and I grew up in West Philly - and he was a cop during the MOVE standoff).
This all makes me so sad. How do we ever get beyond this in my lifetime? Is it too far gone in this country?
Just finishedI'd never seen this. Its officer Thao's interview with BCA and FBI. it's long but I watched the whole thing. I should be sleep but I cant so I watched it.
