The murder of Sarah Everard

The Indian Express is reporting that "The disappearance and death of Sarah Everard, a 33-year-old marketing executive from South London, and the arrest of a police officer accused of murdering her, has sparked a national outcry in the United Kingdom over violence against women. On Tuesday (March 9), the police made two arrests—the first was a 48-year-old police constable, Wayne Couzens, on suspicion of kidnapping, and the second a woman in her 30s on suspicion of assisting an offender."

Sky News is reporitng that "The details came at the initial hearing for a Metropolitan Police officer accused of the kidnap and murder of the 33-year-old marketing executive. Wayne Couzens appeared in person before Westminster Magistrates' Court on Saturday following his arrest on Tuesday. The 48-year-old was remanded in custody and the case will next be heard at the Old Bailey on 16 March."

Sarah Everard and Constable Jasmine Thiara - both murdered. The only difference is that in Canada, Jasmine's murder will never be investigated. I believe in law enforcement. That's the problem. I believe the law should be enforced. Lawful assembly is a sacred right protected by law. The tragic truth is the Police Have a Much Bigger Domestic-Abuse Problem Than the NFL Does. Research suggests that family violence is two to four times higher in the law-enforcement community than in the general population. The Secret Epidemic of Police Domestic Violence.

The Daily Mail is reporitng that "Judge Luckraft said a plea hearing would be held on July 9 at the Old Bailey and a provisional date for a trial - which could last up to four weeks - was set for October 25." The Guardian is reporting that "On Friday he was charged with the kidnap and murder of Sarah Everard following a decision by the Crown Prosecution Service, which decides on whether the evidence gathered by police merits the bringing of criminal charges."
