Chauvin prosecutor says he felt 'a little bad’ for the killer police officer

Minnesota AG and the top prosecutor of ex-police officer Derek Chauvin said he “felt a little bad” for the man convicted of murdering George Floyd.

Keith Ellison was asked by CBS host Scott Pelley of what he thought when he first heard the words “guilty”.
