Hey don't assume I agree with all of it!
You still here? Posting on a British military themed forum?Well one should try to also understand the media is always looking for sensational news to report.
Possibly the cop could claim that, if it wasn’t for the couple of million video witnesses.If a soldier kills a enemy soldier, fulfilling the roe, following orders, knowing that he was going to be killing the enemy before it happened and thinking through the best way to do it, that would meet the criteria of murder but it's obviously not the same as the countless other ways that people kill one another.
Murder is not just murder, it's not all the same.
Disregarding weather or not this cop meant to kill the guy or not, he will probably not be convicted because his training allows him to do what he did, the guy resisted arrested, he was a big chap (200lb) and the cop can just say that he was in fear for his life and in the heat of the moment he fell back in his training.
I'm surprised that they even charged him, if it were not for all the rioting, i doubt that they would have, I've seen worse done by cops on video and they got away with it.
Government always wins.
Indeed, I am.You still here? Posting on a British military themed forum?

That female Police chief in Atlanta had More guts than most of the “2nd amendment warriors”.
Possibly, they are protestors on the streets of Toronto trying to tie all injustices against anyone who isn’t white to this Minneapolis incident, so yes, if it can rear it’s head here, it can just as easily in the UK......Do not want to start another theme, so pose a question here, given the 'Long Hot Summer' has started in the Land of the Free and some of the circumstances are the same as UK covid etc, could the riots kick off in the UK. Black Lives Matter/Burn Baby Burn ?
are flowers banned in Your sub division?
They weren't dumped, this isn't Australia,the bulk went willingly to be rid of that festering hole they came from where one didnt need to be the son of some 1st Lord of gonorrhea, Viscount Privy to make goodNow, to cut them some slack, they've not really had that long to sort their $hit out. They were dumped in a strange and foreign land
Sorta like Cromwell, Eh?fought with the incumbents, 'won', fought with the Government of the time, 'won', fought with each other, 'won'
so the opposite of what you lot imposed in India, Ireland, Burma, South Africa, etc.... recognise that everyone else doesn't have the same values, priorities and point of view.
Letting them burn your vehicles and Precinct house belies your knowledge, rather than slotting them all Reggie Dyer styleWatching CNN, US cops really don’t get the concept of de-escalation and minimal force.
kneecapping peaceful protestors with riot sticks... yeah, that’s the way to calm things down.
Most people prefer the flower pots. You can create a true garden but it has to be approved by the HOA, and immaculate.
