    The Trial of Ben Stokes

    Stokes Arrested thread


    George Dobell @GeorgeDobell1
    The trial of Ben Stokes, Ryan Hale and Ryan Ali will start at Bristol Crown Court on August 6. It is expected to last between five and seven days. It means Stokes will miss the Lordís Test against India.

    Which gets more headlines - the Test or the Trial?

    The trial.

    V The Indians is not the ''Ashes'' I'm afraid! It will barely get a mention, especially in a World Cup summer.

    I still can't believe Alex Hales hasn't been charged with anything, assuming he's the bloke in the video who sinks the slipper into the fella on the deck.

    Has Dobell called the trial a Star Chamber yet?

    If found guilty, the victim should be allowed to punch Stokes to call it even.

    As far as I`m aware the victim is also on trial? The victim is basically the general public for having to put up with Stokes.

    Yip - weirdest thing in the whole thing. Hales must have the best lawyer in the world.

    I just know he's going to either be found not guilty or receive some slap on the wrist sentence and it honestly disgusts me because we've all seen exactly what he did and anyone who does what he did deserves a non-inconsequential chunk of jail time imo.

    I don't want to open up a can of worms or take the discussion off-track but suffice to say it pisses me off generally that when it's one bloke whacking another bloke, no-one really takes it seriously. They should. He could have killed that bloke and as it is, he obviously hurt him pretty badly.

    I never say stuff like this btw- I usually roll my eyes when I hear complaints about "the justice system" and come to the defence of the process and usually the outcome. This one really bothers me though because what he did is pretty much indisputable and in my opinion indefensible and ought to be taken more seriously.

    Funny how the Hague exonerating him two years ago never quite found its way to the front pages. History written by the victors and all that.

    I'd go one further. Biggest trial since Nuremberg.
