UK - Chris Kaba 21, shot dead by armed officers, now a murder inquiry, London.

My feeling is we haven't heard many facts yet. I appreciate the case is sub judice, but I await the trial to hear why the CPS made a charging decision.
I await it too. There is a significant part of me that hopes there is actually a case here to justify the charge, for the sake of my own sanity and that our justice system actually sticks to its' own core principles.

If it turns out that the case is as frivolous as i fear I will be furious! I'm absolutely terrified that this charging decision has ensured that there is now no possible sane outcome to this situation and that the sort of scenes we saw in Minneapolis and other major cities in the United States after the George Floyd incident are now inevitable in the city I live and work in.
 

At the Old Bailey the Recorder of London Mark Lucraft KC decided the officer's name could be made public, along with his date of birth, on 30 January 2024.
Well he is going to be doxxed in about 5 minutes. I feel uneasy about this decision.

It feels obscene to hope that there is something seriously in question about how Kaba died that warrants this charge and the exposure of this officers identity.

Yet if there isn't, it says something really horrendous about how police can be expected to be treated if doing their job according to their training results in some political heat.
 
This trial has now started at the Old Bailey. No news articles about it though - just court listings:
