To Americans: Did you know that some countries have something called the "DC Act"?
The DC Act reads that, "those who would support criminals will be deemed just as guilty". This means that if you in any way show or say ANYTHING in support of a person, ANYTHING at all, and that person is subsequently found guilty in court you are also considered guilty of the same offense as them, and are given the same punishment as a result.
Do you privileged Americans will want to whine about how bad your justice system is and how you're oppressed?

We have similar laws, thanks.

Which countries would these be? Also, the supposition that because some countries have really, really dumb laws, so Americans can't complain because they don't have laws that dumb is false.

EVERY country, including the US has a crime of 'accessory' to most crimes. In fact, every US state has some version of the 'felony murder rule' which states that is you participate in a felony, and a death results, you can be convicted of murder. There has been a case where an arm robber was shot by the intended victim, and the driver of the getaway car was charged with murder.
What YOU describe IS NOT the actual law ANYWHERE. I hereby DEFY you to cite an actual law that is HALF as broad as you claim.

We have that in the US, too. That's why the 3 officers who stood and watched while Floyd was killed are being charged. They could easily have stopped it.

Most if not all states in the US have similar laws. It is called be an accessory before or after the fact.
