Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has asked a judge to dismiss murder charges against him in the death of George Floyd.

a man looking at the camera: Derek Chauvin is asking a judge to dismiss all charges against him in the death of George Floyd.© Hennepin County Sheriff's Office Derek Chauvin is asking a judge to dismiss all charges against him in the death of George Floyd.
In court papers Friday, Chauvin's attorney says there is not probable cause to support charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Floyd's killing sparked protests against systemic racism and police brutality around the world.

Meanwhile, prosecutors said Friday that Floyd's killing was so cruel that they want stricter sentences than recommended by state guidelines if Chauvin and the three other officers involved are found guilty.


I think this is pretty routine and, IMO, won't succeed.

1. I know Keith Ellison. He will not allow this to happen...

A man was murdered in broad daylight. You do not get a GET OUT OF TRIAL card.

3. I'm guessing he doesn't like his chances in GenPop.

The life-expectancy of a killer cop in the joint can be measured with an egg-timer...

5. LOL.

Yep, a very short life expectancy in GenPop, which is why he will be in protective custody, 23 hrs. a day in his cell with 1 hour yard time.

Couldn't happen to a better POS.

4. Every criminal defense attorney makes this motion.

You risk malpractice if you donít.

6. That's kind of what I figured,

it's a routine motion, and I think he probably expects it to be denied.

Thank you for the confirmation.
