Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill reinstated third-degree murder charges against Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on the third day of jury selection. The trial now includes a set of charges against Chauvin more favorable to the prosecution who may not be able to prove second-degree murder and/or possibly second-degree manslaughter.
Meanwhile the political activists are using the opportunity of the trial to take control over a portion of the city where even the police will no longer patrol. The leftists have created an autonomous zone, a no-go zone, near the site of the George Floyd memorial.
MINNESOTA – […] Judge Peter Cahill on Thursday granted prosecutors’ motion to reinstate the third-degree murder charge, which would require a lower standard of proof than second-degree. In order to convict Chauvin of second-degree murder, prosecutors would need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Chauvin caused Floyd’s death while committing or attempting to commit a related felony, in this case third-degree assault.
To win a conviction on third-degree murder, prosecutors would need to prove that Chauvin caused Floyd’s death in an act that is “eminently dangerous” to others. The additional count adds another option for jurors to consider as they weigh charges against Chauvin, which legal experts say is a benefit for prosecutors. (more)
Just like the cases of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Freddie Grey, Eric Garner, Breonna Taylor and many more, the background political activists are attempting to manipulate public opinion to achieve their goals. This has been the Marxist roadmap and racial division strategy for the past decade. “Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste”
