THE CHAUVIN TRIAL – IS THE FIX IN?

Submitted by Pachamama

As the jury takes the murder case against Derek Chauvin for taking the life of George Floyd it has been disclosed that the kraken Chauvin was a highly-trained martial artist.

It’s amazing how both the prosecution and the defense attorneys, as officers of the court, seemed to have conspired to avoid letting the jury, and the public, know about the existence of this highly important factoid, the murder weapon. Such information should have been at the heart of a first degree murder charge, against Chauvin. But it never once came up!

Neither was the jury nor the public told that Derek Chauvin had as many as nineteen (19) complaints against him, in his police file. Yet the American injustice system is held up as a ‘paragon of virtue’, fit for wall to wall coverage on all networks.

These are the central problems with modern judicial systems. These are the structures which insist that the protection of official corruption itself is paramount.

How else can an injustice system maintain itself if it starts to convict police officers as the main protectors of that same wicked system if it starts putting on trial policemen for first degree murder like should have been the case in the death of George Floyd?

The lodge, that is a law courts, demands that both prosecutors and defense attorneys pledge allegiance to the court and not to the client or the people, with regard to public prosecutors.

Both sides managed to speak endlessly about 9 minutes and 29 seconds and other mundane issues but this central piece of information was never once told to the jury.

This occurs in a case where we were treated to any number of police officers paraded by the State of Wisconsin, including the Police Commissioner himself.

And as if to speak in code, or under the direction of unknown third parties, every prosecution or police witness made inert statements about the restraint (martial arts hold) which Chauvin used on George Floyd.

The commissioner himself said words to the effect that Chauvin’s restraint technique was not part of police training, so did several other policemen/women. The obvious question should have been, then where did it come from? But we were not to know this, certainly not the jury.

As a martial artist Chauvin ought to have known or certainly would have known that the restraint technique applied to George Floyd’s neck was certain to kill him. This qualifies as intent. This was a central requirement for first degree murder charges. Are these the workings of a Black man called Keith Ellison, the state attorney general?

Indeed, it is well known that as a martial artist one’s being is considered a deadly weapon. Either as policemen or martial artist or both the chokehold represents murder in the first degree with intentionality and as such should not escape the death penalty, if found guilty.

Given these circumstances, we are now to ask a number of wider questions. Those questions are pregnant with meanings and fall within the inalterable decay of the American judicial system and empire itself.

We need to ask, why was there such an unusual haste to pay-off the family of George Floyd with about 27 million pieces of silver just a few days before the trial started?

Was this smoking gun evidence, just coming to light, part of the financial settlement or blood money as negotiated by the family lawyers?

Was it agreed beforehand that this show trial, we’ve witnessed for the last three weeks, should be no more than that?

What were the roles of the ambulance-chasing family attorneys like Benjamin Crump, family members, people such as Al Sharpton – the sidekick of Crump, media prostitutes on the networks, public officials and others in covering up the magnitude of this modern day lynching of the late George Floyd?

When all the systems around us are so corrupted or corruptible the patina of justice only serves to galvanize and propagandize global opinion around an unjust trial for the blood of a sacrificial lamb led to the slaughter in the maw of empire.

    Unfortunately it is the reality of the situation we face. The establishment will not cede power to Blacks by agreeing to it overnight. There is a reason why later today or tomorrow a White cop in the USA will repeat some stupid act that involves a minority to mirror Floyd. There is a reason why Clifford Corbin said what he did. You have to deal with how a group of people have been socialized.

    I would be the first to admit that the USA has a lot of issues and needs a lot of fixing, but I sees it as a country that moves forward. Deeply flawed but fighting to improve itself.

    We had an odious character and he was removed; there is still some stench remaining, but that too will pass. Racism is embedded deep in the body of the USA; we will not vanquish it overnight, but we will overcome.

  • Virginia cop is fired for giving $25 to Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal fund with note saying ‘you’ve done nothing wrong’ after hack revealed names of anonymous donors

    A Virginia cop has been fired for anonymously donating $25 to Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal fund with a note saying ‘you’ve done nothing wrong’.

    Norfolk Police Lt. William K. Kelly lost his job after a hack revealed the names of those who gave money to help with the 18-year-old’s costs.

    Rittenhouse is accused of killing two protesters and wounding a third during a demonstration against police brutality in Wisconsin last August 25.

    Kelly, who was second in command in the Norfolk Police Department’s internal affairs division, is said to have written: ‘God bless. Thank you for your courage. Keep your head up. You’ve done nothing wrong.

    ‘Every rank and file police officer supports you. Don’t be discouraged by actions of the political class of law enforcement leadership.’

    City Manager Chip Filer said: ‘I have reviewed the results of the internal investigation involving Lt. William Kelly. Chief Larry Boone and I have concluded Lt. Kelly’s actions are in violation of City and departmental policies.

    ‘His egregious comments erode the trust between the Norfolk Police Department and those they are sworn to serve.’

    Norfolk Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander added: ‘The alleged statement and action by a member of Norfolk’s Police Department is alarming and by all means not consistent with the values of our city or the standards set for our employees.’

    Kelly has not commented. The 19-year veteran can appeal the decision.

  • Police ‘untouchable’, says Pilgrim
    By Randy Bennett
    One of the island’s leading criminal attorneys does not believe yesterday’s murder conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin will have a major impact on law enforcement practices here.
    Queen’s Counsel, Andrew Pilgrim told Barbados TODAY it was unlikely there would be a shift in police behaviour in Barbados simply because of a guilty verdict miles away in the United States.
    The 45-year-old Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree murder, thirddegree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the May, 2020, death of George Floyd.
    Floyd’s death sparked a worldwide movement calling for police reform and racial justice and ignited the Black Lives Matter movement.
    The verdict was welcomed by millions, including US President Joe Biden and Vicepresident Kamala Harris.
    However, Pilgrim said police officers in Barbados remained untouchable to this very day.
    “There are many professions in Barbados that have remained quite untouchable over the years; lawyers, doctors, police are the three that rush to mind. But in the context of Barbados, the police have always felt that they have had the right to do whatever they please with ordinary citizens.
    “This has been displayed in the forms of police breaking into people’s homes with or without warrants, ill-treating people and not giving them their due and cases like the Shaquon Cave incident very recently. I’m not saying that wrong was done in that case, but the fact that it takes so long for a mother to get information on the status of her child and how her child met his death suggests to me that we are not yet ready to deal with these things in the right way and that the police feel they can do anything and get away with it,” Pilgrim said.
    “I don’t think that we are really impacted in a real way by things like this happening as far away as the United States.”
    The outspoken attorney said the 2017 Pirate’s Cove incident in which a police officer was recorded kicking a man several times while he laid on the ground, was a reminder of that.
    He said despite the recording being widely circulated, no action had been taken against any officer to date.
    “The case that to me is the hobbyhorse of all of this is the Pirate Cove’s cases and I still maintain that the Commissioner of Police or someone should have had to resign over that. To this date, that case remains uninvestigated by the police.
    When police can be seen on video kicking people around and dragging them by their dreadlocks and nothing happens in this country, it will tell me that the case of Chauvin really means nothing to Barbadian authorities because we still feel that police should be able to do things and get away from it,” Pilgrim said.
    “While I think that things are changing and I notice that the laws are moving in the right direction in terms of protecting people whilst in custody, a week seldom passes in this country that people do not complain to me about being abused either in their homes or on the streets by members of the Royal Barbados Police Force.”
    He called for the establishment of an authority that was powerful and capable of investigating the police, lawyers and doctors.
    Adding its voice, the Barbados Bar Association (BBA) said while police killings were rare in Barbados there have long been allegations of police using excessive and unlawful force against persons.
    President of the BBA, Rosalind Smith- Millar said the introduction of a requirement that confessions be videotaped would go a long way and called for the use of body cameras on police officers on duty.
    She said the Police Complaints Authority also had to be seen by the public as “accessible, independent, accountable, transparent, fearless, thorough and efficient in dealing with complaints.”
    Smith-Millar said more than anything else, a stronger relationship had to be forged between police and the public.
    “More than rules and regulations, however, a cultural shift is required to ameliorate the relationship between the police and the public, to create the trust that will get results without abuse of the system.
    There must be a top-down understanding and facilitation of the value of ‘doing the right thing in the right way’” Smith-Millar said.

    if people would STOP comparing 2 VERY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES, different socialization, different COLONIZATION, different culturization…there will be NO NEED for these articles….the police in Barbados are tge way they are BECAUSE OF 2 EVIL, DISGUSTING, REPULSIVE small time, SELLOUT governments and their ILLEGAL need to protect…the nastiness of whiteness, racism, corruption, etc…….that’s why the police force has DEGRADED TO THAT LOW SOCIAL LEVEL…and the WHOLE island by extension…

  • Donna ‘There are good policemen and bad policemen in Barbados. There is corruption as there is everywhere!”

    And that is the whole point. Remember Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney ”there is good and bad in everyone”?

    I say again, black, white, red, yellow, we are all people and there are good and there are evil. I have experienced both good and evil from people and I judge people on who the individual is.

    Working on principles, dealing with individuals or groups who align themselves together, is the only way forward. When you put everyone in a box, based on creed, as a few are doing here, it achieves nothing and is a lie in itself. A blatant lie.

    The fight is good against evil, there is no other fight.

    Like it or lump it, people can put their spin on it, for their own reasons, but that is the way it is.

    @ all:
    As a very little boy, I was told that if I don’t clean my yard, I have no right telling anybody theirs want cleaning.
    We can talk all we like. I am still looking at the Constitution , to find out where a citizen of the country has to be living in order to talk. I hope Ezra Alleyne writes a column about that section of the document .
    However, if we really love our country, we would have to hope that at the very minimum, we have citizens such as Senator Caswell Franklyn and Attorney Andrew Pilgrim QC. who are prepared to speak truth to power.
    Where they come from, where they are living now and what political party they support are absolutely unimportant.
    Ah mean , even a former Prime Minister and National Hero, Errol Barrow, said that if poor people wanted Justice, they should stay away from the law courts. I think that he was also a top lawyer.
    In my esteemed ignorance I still believe he meant poor black people.
    I just recently read that when he said that , he was living in either America, England or Canada. It is still a mystery how he was able to be prime minister and remain outside.
    Further reading revealed to my astonishment, that the same Errol Barrow , while living in Australia, New Zealand or somewhere so, said that one of these days Barbadians will wake up and find out that they no longer had or owned the country.
    And as if this was not enough to make me shiver ; the same Barrow held a public meeting somewhere or the other, where he was living at the time and asked a big crowd of Barbadians , mainly Black I assume, what kind of mirror image they had of themselves.
    Barrow, fortunately got away with throwing these things at Barbados while he was living overseas. One historian call the objects big rocks and another called them shade.
    I still trying to find out how he became prime minister, a national hero and to this day is even considered the Father of Independence, while living outside the country. It’ remains a mystery.
    And bright and early this morning I froze when I heard that Senator Franklin and Attorney Pilgrim also live outside the country.
    Strange things happen . It gotta be the white rum. I dun wid dat fellow fuh now.

That is why I was able to get them off the back of my Westbury Rd former GIS “student” mentee. Never bothered him again after I showed up! After his release from the GIS they had picked him up whenever there was a report of anything in the area. Sent my attorney friend for him twice. He was released without charge both times. The third time I took him in to Central myself per his request (he wasn’t going otherwise) and gave them a warning that left them speechless and smiling sheepishly.

    For the last time- WE FIGHT A DELIBERATELY CONSTRUCTED WHITE SUPREMACIST SYSTEM, NOT INDIVIDUAL WHITE MEN! When we speak of the white man we mean HIS SYSTEM and those who maintain it to this day.

    Under this system most blacks remain at the bottom of the heap kept there by their blackness.

    So many of them are like the mythical Greek rolling a stone up a hill. It always rolls back down.

    This system has to be dismantled in a SYSTEMATIC WAY by addressing it in a manner peculiar to its functioning.

    Last week was the anniversary of the Black Wall Street.

    What was done there was done on the basis of race! How do you fight that if not by highlighting race?

    How do you fight a justice system that is designed to terrorise blacks without mentioning race?

    When a policeman kills a man because he is black, how do you address that without highlighting the racial bias?

    When election laws are designed to keep blacks from voting how do you address that without addressing the very reason for the laws??????
