In Minneapolis, the state agency said.A conviction for third degree murder could land an offender in prison for up to 25 years.Third degree murder means an offender did not intend to kill, but that someone died “by perpetrating an act eminently dangerous to others and evincing a depraved mind, without regard for human life.”Floyd’s family says these charges are not enoughFloyd’s family, represented by civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, welcomed the arrest but said the officer should be facing a first degree murder charge.Under Minnesota statutes, first degree murder is defined as a slaying that includes “premeditation and with intent to effect the death of the person or of another.” Second degree murder is often applied to drive by shootings or other killings while the offender is “intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict bodily harm upon the victim.””The arrest of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the brutal killing of George Floyd is a welcome but overdue step on the road to justice.

But in its perception of how pop music gets made, this glossy, pink frosted fable could just as well be an extraterrestrial’s attempt to reverse engineer it after mainlining every single episode of American Idol and The Voice during a sleepless, years long journey from another galaxy.
Their standard bearer was Millard Fillmore, the last Whig president, a decorous figurehead. The Democrats nominated James Buchanan, a northern man of southern sympathy, a distinguished former senator from Pennsylvania, the crucial swing state.Abraham Lincoln, a lifelong Whig, forged the Illinois Republican party in 1856 out of a cacophony of contending factions, including radical abolitionists, Whigs, dissident antislavery Democrats and liberal German immigrants. Lincoln despised Know Nothingism.In 1855, he wrote that if the movement ever won power it would rewrite the Declaration of Independence: “When the Know Nothings get control, it will read ‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.’ When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.”Behind the scenes, Lincoln worked to undermine the Know Nothings, break up their party and bring some of its former Whig adherents to his new cause.
