The fate of Derek Chauvin

Chauvin, writes Dalrymple,

will be severely punished even if his prison sentence is not a very long one, for I know as a former prison doctor that the lot of an imprisoned policeman, even for a far lesser crime than his, is not a happy one.

He will have to be under special protection for the duration of his sentence: prisoners,

who may have a poor memory for what they themselves have done, have the memory of elephants for policemen. A momentary lapse in his protection, ever more likely to happen the longer his sentence continues, will be sufficient for him to suffer a vicious attack. So long as he remains in prison, he will never know a moment’s peace of mind.
