The dissenting doctor wrote an article in The Salisbury Review back in June about the circus surrounding the Derek Chauvin trial, which has only now come to my attention.
Like so many aspects of civilization, the belief in the right to fair trial is fragile and not deeply embedded in the human soul. Where people are utterly convinced of their own rectitude and of the wickedness of people who have different opinions from their own, the idea of a fair trial will seem to them merely irrelevant or an obstruction to ‘true’ justice. Mob rule is not far distant.
Though late it is certainly relevant to the trial currently taking place.
