Murder 1 is pre-meditated.Those cops were literally meditating while they squeezed out the life of George Floyd.Why not charge them with M1?

    Actually the proof of pre-meditation is a bit more stringent than they were there and did the deed.  For pre-meditation the perp has to indicate by actions or expression that they are planning to kill someone.  EX:  If Chauvin can be shown to be stalking Floyd for days prior to killing him, that would indicate premeditation.

      Well, they did both know each other from a previous job at a nightclub. But my main point is that Chauvin is not mentally retarded, and thus he had plenty of minutes to meditate and decide whether or not to stop the process of killing George Floyd.

    The police were trained to do with this with agitated perps. Maybe you could get a job at the police academy and teach them something different.

      Your reading comprehension skills are below a 3rd Grade level, yet you base your profile name on two famous authors. Russian authors. Russians are absolutely the biggest cheaters, of all the pre-medical students. This is starting to make sense.

    Haha. So quick to make a stupid joke, you don't even realize that you're disproving your own point. If they were "meditating while they did it", then it would be PRE-meditation. So, then it would have to be second degree, because it happened at the time and wasn't pre-.

      Haha. You're assuming that the cops had the brains of hamsters, and didn't realize 3 minutes in that they were killing him. They had AMPLE time to reconsider during their meditation. It wasn't a sudden shooting, with a binary decision. It was not instantaneous, as you weirdly suggest. Haha indeed.

    The answer is ... because no jury would convict for Murder 1.  In fact, Ellison is likely over-charging with Murder 2.  Chauvin will get convicted of something, likely the manslaughter charge.  The other three former-cops will walk.  There is no evidence they committed a crime.

      Oh right. Trumpy speak for "There is plenty of evidence"  = "There is no evidence."

      That you would suggest I am below your considerably low inellectual level, is hurtful. I am properly insulted.

    Did they pre-meditatively fill him up with meth and fentanyl and stick a counterfeit bill in his pocket too?

      I don't know. Maybe. If they're vicious enough to execute someone in broad daylight, why not?
