1:21 am
they were happy with the verdict. if ellison is the attorney general, who added the 1st degree manslaughter charge after 1st charging potter with 2nd degree manslaughter, he seemed to feel vindicated, saying there would be an empty seat at the dante right family table this holiday season and took his mother, spoke as well and this is what she had to say. the moment that we heard guilty on the, on manslaughter one emotions every single emotion that you could imagine just running through your body. at that moment. i kind of let out a yelp because it was built up in the anticipation of what was the calm when while we were waiting for the last few days. and now we've been able to process it. we want to thank the entire prosecution team. we want to thank community support, everybody who's been out there that has supported us and this, this long fight for accountability. well, for
1:22 am
a police officer who has been found guilty for a shooting on duty, this is a pretty stiff potential sentence on the 1st charge of 1st degree manslaughter. it's 15 years maximum on the 2nd charge. second degree manslaughter. it's 10 years . the guidelines in the state of minnesota would call for about 7 to 4 year, 7 years on the 1st charge and an additional 4 years on the 2nd charge as being fairly standard. from most cases, people serve about 2 thirds of that, but there are also mandatory minimum sentences here. so it looks almost inescapable that kim potter will face years in prison. she'll do so right here in the state of minnesota, and right now she has been scheduled for sentencing. on february 18th, hong kong university has removed the statue commemoration, the victims of the 980 9, 10 am and square massacre, which is censored in china. the so called the pillar of shame was made by a danish sculptor to symbolize the lives lost during the military crack them acid bake reports. taken down under the cover of darkness,
