Is increasing the charge against the Minneapolis officer to 2nd degree murder a risky legal move?

Second-degree murder is when a person causes the death of another person with intent to cause the death of that person (but no premeditation). 

Can this intent be proven or is this a 3rd degree murder case?

    Chauvin deliberately kept his knee on Floyd's throat when Floyd was saying he couldn't breath and for nearly three minutes after Floyd had fallen unconscious as his brain was starved of oxygen. There was no reason whatsoever to continue the restraint once he was unconscious. That sounds like intent to cause death

    The fact that the two men knew each other even raises the possibility of Chauvin acting out a grudge and there was premeditation.

    People were literally telling the cop that he's killing him. He knew what he was doing 🙄🙄
