  2. Unlike the reporter in the video, I’ll believe the defendants are “facing justice” when they are convicted of more than involuntary manslaughter and given more than a slap on the wrist. (Maybe a slap on the back?)

    • The Independent article begins with the expression ‘facing justice’ but ends with: ‘If the jury returns four convictions, then perhaps there will be a little easing of one nation’s conscience and another nation’s anger. But even that might not feel much like justice.’
