    Yeah, got that.... and just saying that I bet Lane wishes he had thought of that! All he did was ask questions and make suggestions - he SHOULD have acted!

    Seattle. I never ended up hearing about a follow up. That incident ended up getting overshadowed by a different incident this weekend involving that same department.

    Ok. It doesn't look identical but could be the angle. But yeah his partner really dragged the knee off. If it were me I'd be yelling at him later.

    I think Floyd resisted arrest and being put in the police car and they had to wrestle him to the ground. Chauvin, was probably angry at having to fight him and took it out on him while he was on the ground.

    This from the BBC tonight:

    New charges have been announced against all of the sacked police officers present at the death of African American George Floyd in Minneapolis.

    The charge against Derek Chauvin has been elevated to second-degree murder, court documents show.

    The other three officers face counts of aiding and abetting murder, the documents state.

    He was inside the car already. Chauvin yanked him out to the ground.
