Minnesota AG Keith Ellison has taken over the prosecution against Derek Chauvin, and added second degree murder charges (I guess John DuCane is no longer public enemy number one).
In a Washington Post opinion piece, former prosecutor Paul Butler (who used to specialize in prosecuting corrupt cops and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for a book called 'Chokehold') argues that it will be difficult to get a murder conviction against Chauvin.
What are the odds that Chauvin gets convicted? What about the other three? Will any of them win lawsuits for wrongful termination against the city?

It's a setup. Ellison knows that they won't get the second degree murder charge, setting Minneapolis up with another folie à deux this fall. Sayyyyy, in November or so.
