Didn't take long. As I said before, he deserves everything he gets, but the whole court process was so tainted it was laughable.

it was actually an opportunity for you to educate yourself

The reason why you won't call up footage as there is no footage relevant to your position. You will note the police had George under control, crossed the road and had him hand cuffed. At no point during the 9 minute murder did George resist arrest, evidenced by the footage.

If you are referring to the moment where George tried to re-enter his vehicle as the excuse for the murder, then you are providing evidence the police acted out of malice.
Is that what I’m doing? 🥴🤤🍻

Man you’re thick. Stay offended at your own lack of comprehension. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Yep. Needs to go to a re-trial. Where he'll be found guilty again.
you never know

placing the knee on someone's neck (a procedure banned by his employer due to the risk of death), on someone who is not resisting arresy, whilst the person being executed informs the murderer he can't breath, whilst the citizens inform the murderer he's killing the detainee, whilst the murderer casually has his hands in pocket as there is no resisting of arrest of threat..........

Absolutely. You've either got a justice system or you haven't. The US one is in a precarious state as it is, it doesn't need another kangaroo court.

Imagine the uproar, the hand-wringing and pearl-clutching from Murricans if one of their own had gone through a similarly tainted trial in another country. The freedom-and-democracy bombs would be being armed as we speak.

Agree there needs to be a fair trial

but isn't it ironic that the person who denied George a fair trial is whinging

Nobody is denying that. It's the abuse of due process that's the issue here, the perp is irrelevant.
yep he still needs a fair process

the system however needs to take a long hard look at itself and ask how often do police deny the rights of citizens and how often are trials carried out without appropriate controls to avoid unfair trials

I may be incorrect, but I don't think there would have been the same circus in Australia. I'd guess there'd be suppression orders so the likes of Maxine Waters isn't inciting violence. If you breach suppression orders you can end up behind bars.

One of the best defences against police misbehaviour was removed in Victoria about a year ago (de novo trials from the Magistrates' Court into the County Court). It was an effective way to create reasonable doubt, especially when police were lying.

People need to educate themselves on their rights. I am probably in the top 1% of the population in understanding my rights but I still feel ignorant.
