We have all seen the video where Officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on George Floyd's neck until he was dead, never once checking on his health, and to this day Officer Chauvin has not taken any responsibly for his death.
I am speculating that the attorneys for Chauvin have begged for a manslaughter plea deal, and prosecutors have not talked about any possible deal short of second degree murder.
We can assume that Officer Chauvin objective was not murder George Floyd while cameras were rolling and at least a dozen people stood there watching, but it is also clear Chauvin did not give a fuck if George Floyd died or might be seriously injured. Chauvin looks like he pinning down an animal, and has no concern about life of that animal. No joke, he looks like he could light a cigarette while he choking Floyd to death, not because that was his objective, but because he had zero concern about Floyd and it never once occurred to Chauvin that he might be harming Floyd, let alone killing him.
We all hope Chauvin testifies so he can speak to what he was thinking as he murdered George Floyd. No doubt in his mind, everything he was doing was right out of the Police procedure manual of how to deal with Black people, thus he was just doing exactly as he done 100s of time before.
