Chauvin Guilty Of George Floyd's Murder

Recommended Posts

An ex-footballer was Tasered by a PC for six times longer than standard, before being kicked - leaving bootlace prints on his forehead, a jury heard.

Benjamin Monk is charged with the murder of Dalian Atkinson during an altercation in Shropshire in 2016.

The above is a quote from the BBC, so its taken 5 years to come to court. Can that be blamed partially on COVID, but even 3 years would have been a long time.

There are thousands of serious cases like this.

 

What do expect when you cut legal aid etc to the quick?

Simply brilliant 👏👏👏

Thank you for that butlers, watching that gave me goosebumps. 

If anyone else would like to see the goal I linked it below ... 

Moderators, if this thread isn't the place for the link please accept my apologies and I completely understand if it is removed or moved 👍

I think the UK legal system attempts to make sure everyone gets a fair trial which might be one reason for the delay. It is only recently that the names of the Police Officers involved in the incident have been named in the media.  The fact that they are still serving Police Officers makes a fair trial more possible unlike what happened in the USA when Chauvin was sacked immediately after the incident and thrown under the bus.

How was he thrown under the bus??? 

He was filmed kneeling down on George Floyd's neck for 9 minutes until Floyd died. Chauvin quite correctly was found guilty.

The police should have waited until the outcome of the criminal trial before taking any disciplinary action against Chauvin.  The filming of the incident and the huge amount of publicity it received made it very difficult for Chauvin to receive a fair trial. I don't disagree that it was correct that Chauvin was found guilty of one of the charges.  The charge I refer to is the UK's equivalent of manslaughter.

Chauvin faced the appropiate  charges under Minnesota law.

 

Inevitable there will be an appeal but even the Fox News legal contributers rabid " back the blue's types said it was a fair conviction.

The openness of the US system does jar against the UK system.

Complete garbage. People who are used to working in either the civil or criminal legal frameworks know that what happens in the civil arena (in this case disciplinary action by the police department) has very little bearing on criminal proceedings, because the burden of proof in civil law is a lot lower.
