Looking at this list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_killings_by_law_enforcement_officers_in_the_United_Kingdom

When you consider in the US the number of people killed by law enforcement is nearly 1000 in 2020, as opposed to 4 in the UK, it's still a very rare event in the UK, and looking at many events on that list it seems tend to have more ramifications (as in several officer have been taken to court, other events have led to inquests and changes have been implemented).

The low numbers on this side of the pond is mainly, I would suggest, because our police do not carry guns. A single squeeze of a trigger to solve a problem is too tempting.

If anyone dies at the hands of the police in Britain, there is an automatic referral to external enquiry procedures. Thankfully it is rare.

I was surprised by the figure of nearly 1,000 in a year in America, as I had heard much lower figures, in double-figures, but I have not seen the stats.

As it is in the USA.

Not quite as "external" as it should be. Usually former cops employed by the police department. "We investigated ourselves and found we did nothing wrong."

The fact they demanded $100k bail and he could potentially face 40 years jail (two charges, each carrying possible 20 years), how does anyone think this is serving the people, democracy, and fighting fraud and corruption?

Interesting piece in the Grauniad this morning.

Yes indeed. I don't know whether the kompromat is the legendary pee tape or not, and in fact I rather doubt it and think it far more likely to be financial shenanigans, but I do hope at least some Trump supporters will consider their support for him in light of this. They probably won't believe it though. I'll be interested to see if it turns up on the PBS News Hour this evening.

Trump supporters are so far gone at this stage that he could rape their parents and their children and they would still make excuses for him.

At least with financial crimes he has the chance of going to prison for the rest of his life. His family don't have his charisma or misplaced confidence, so there won't be a political legacy no matter how much they try to force one.

Must be an EU thing, anyway the gist is that the fund raiser tour is actually draining the coffers of these two fuckwits.

Erm... no, I really don't think so!

(Just for the record, I can read it just fine.)

It's well worth seeking out the video of the guy who stands next to these two and says that he thinks she's not crazy and that Gaetz isn't a paedophile over and over until he gets accompanied out of there. The guy is clearly taking the piss, but everything so uncomfortable for them.
