    This won't see a courtroom for a year, but the rest of your point was exactly what struck me when I heard they upgraded the charge from 3rd to 2nd degree.
    They likely had him dead to rights on 3rd degree as Minn. law defines it.
    But a requirement to prove intent on a 2nd degree charge is much harder to get beyond reasonable doubt.
    Remember, the LA riots started AFTER the officers were acquitted.
    If it looks bad now, just wait for THAT outcome.

    Some satire on the current situation:

    NEW YORK, NY—In response to a growing anti-police sentiment, McGruff the Crime Dog has been taken to the vet and put down.

    “We just didn’t feel safe with him around,” said activist Ray Clarke, one of the people who demanded McGruff be euthanized. “He was always urging people to ‘Take a bite out of crime,’ and we don’t need more violence like that from law enforcement. He has to die.”
    McGruff had long educated people on measures they can take against crime but had recently been criticized for not caring about the racial disparity of his bites out of crime and for his association with the police. That’s why euthanizing McGruff became a part of “defunding the police,” even though technically it was a measure that cost more money (the vet charged $150).
    Defenders of McGruff argued that McGruff could just be retired and live on a farm working as a P.I. instead of being put down — or that at least they didn’t need to tell McGruff he was a “bad, bad dog” before the injection, but activists wouldn’t relent, and the euthanization happened as planned. A small memorial was erected for McGruff, and it has already been vandalized.

    Putting my tin foil hat on I would say that this is the plan all along. They can't get it done before the election but should Trump win, this little baby will be in their back pocket. I know, I know, it's just to wild and fanciful to contemplate.

    What happened to George was wrong, from what I saw and heard. I do believe the facts will tell a different story...
    My thoughts are he was arrested, resisted and the drugs he was on didnt make him easily cuffed and put in car. After much resisting and wrestling with him, the cops got him down, and commenced a legal maneuver via neck restraint, legal per Minnesota law.. I also feel it was excessive at the time, based on what I saw.
    Based on whats going on in our country, I feel something is definitely off on this. And the Dems definitely took advantage of it. Antifa has too.. Its ugly out there.
    And 2nd degree murder charges are, in my opinion, too much. Why? Because you have to prove intent. What happens if he is acquitted because Prosecutor cant prove intent. RIOTS, right before election.
    I searched and searched for videos, but this questionable site has some.. Makes ya wonder.. It is a long couple videos on this link..
    Again, FACTS please..

    I think if you look at the video from the store front where they take him out of his car, the officer that escorts him to the side walk asks if he is on anything.

    If he had said yeah I took Fentanyl and Meth, they would have known to have the rescue squad show up with Narcan. But since he didn't they didn't use it on him.
    It's all true, give or take a lie or two.

    I know your comment was satire but the crazy thing is I read an article the other day that one municipality actually changed protocol in regards to their canine unit and will no longer allow the canines to take down or apprehend suspects. I will try and go back and find it.

The whole problem could have been cleared by simply apologizing and promising it would not happen again. They didn't want to do that. I was more annoyed by the "blue wall of silence" than the actual incident.

    Police work requires good judgement. Even good police are going to make mistakes. Bad ones will make worse mistakes and more frequent mistakes. If they are going to hire idiots, and then defend them when they screw up, they should expect bad results and lousy PR.
    Did they ever tell you why he'd been sent to your address? What the nature of the original complaint was?

    I know that I'd been sent on any number of check the welfare calls; some were kind of scary til we got to the bottom of them where they turned out to be nothing to one where a gent with cancer had bled out from vomiting.

    You do have a right to ask for and receive an answer as to why they were there. They may not have to tell you who the complainant was, but .

    As for the sanity of the individual that filed the complaint. The police need to treat him as totally sane unless they've had prior contacts that indicate otherwise.
