World pleasantly surprised as man filmed committing entire murder found guilty of it

THE world has been pleasantly surprised that an American policeman who was filmed committing a murder, from start to finish, was actually found guilty of it. 

The conviction of Derek Chauvin on counts of murder and manslaughter has surprised everyone who assumed that even though his cold-blooded murder of George Floyd was recorded comprehensively from several angles he might still get away with it.

Will McKay of Birmingham said: “Well. Convicted on all three counts and spending the rest of his life behind bars. I have to admit I wasn’t expecting that.

“Of course the man was clearly guilty and had no real defence, but he was a white cop and the victim was black and this is America, so there was plenty of room for doubt.

“Perhaps this will even set a new evidential standard so the next policeman filmed blatantly murdering an innocent citizen on camera, not even trying to hide it, will also be convicted. I mean you can dream.

“Then that’ll only leave all the cases that don’t happen on an open street in broad daylight, that aren’t filmed in their entirety, and where the victim isn’t unarmed and handcuffed throughout the whole thing.

“In those the cop will obviously get off and return to the streets to kill again. Still, baby steps.”

Woman going to pub chooses perfect outfit to hide under big coat

A WOMAN visiting the pub has spent hours choosing just the right outfit for the evening, and has then covered it with a puffa coat. 

Emma Bradford spent ages picking the perfect top and jeans for her re-entry to socialising, a combination visible for up to six minutes before she zipped her coat all the way to the top.

She said: “It was nice to do my hair and put my glad rags on, even if I did then stick a woolly hat and coat on over them. Then of course, I was mostly wearing a mask over my beautifully made-up face.

“I even spent £25 quid on some new nails only to hide them under fur mittens, and I had my suede boots on but you couldn’t really see them under the blanket.

“Still, I got a few nice photos to post on Instagram before I went out and that’s the main thing. Though it does undermine the whole point of going out slightly.”

She added: “I’m going blanket shopping at the weekend to get myself some fancy ones. I think that’s what I’ll mainly be wearing this season.”
