It just doesn't go away. It keeps happening and is the sickness of mankind . This is the latest to draw media attention.
Think the night could be the night Bobo,that's the army being deployed in Washington,this will not end well. I remember 1968,when events like this were almost worldwide,and we still have'nt learned anything. HH stay safe.It just doesn't go away. It keeps happening and is the sickness of mankind . This is the latest to draw media attention.
I fully expect us to show support. We will.
It would be an obvious and honest gesture. I hope that more sporting groups/teams/sportspeople do it.
This is an American horror story that steadily bubbles under the surface continually.
I won't differentiate between this case or previous. President current or previous.
Over here we have stop and search figures that are disproportionately weighted.
Add guns to that mix, extreme political views, poverty and the result is too many black men being shot or roughed up till the point of death.
It exists and is real.
On a side note
I'm an hip-hop music fan 80s 90s and early 00s. Set aside your music taste these men and women tell tales of thier struggles, personal struggles. They are a limited few that have earned a voice. If you are not a fan of the music then the stories and lyrics paint a eerie picture.
Outwith this case of creed and colour it happens everywhere and always has.
Us humans ain't a good bunch collectively. Collectively I'll stress.
Over 4000 arrests so far. I'm not sure if anyone else has died.
It's a feverish melting point over there. Ammo and gun sell out. Mass unemployment with linked health benefits lost.
It was simply a dry forrest waiting to be lit.
A man has lost his life and the match ignited.
With candidates running and certain news channel affiliations there may be leanings and I'm sure there are in the reports.
Doesn't really matter how much. From what I've seen even if it was a few streets per city it's too much.
How do they fix it? They can't. We have our politicians that push agendas. We have police that have leanings.
I'd heard shouts for police to be ran through psychoanalyst every 6 months.
Try getting fair results on that.
The only way I think it could be handled is an independent inquiry...again who can't be got to?
Polygraph tests? Jeez there aren't many people from any walk that would pass any imaginary 30pt test if it existed. Not would it ever be passed.
This tragic event has America and everyone under a microscope.
Trump running the show ...jeez.
His quote to "dominate" protesters made my blood run cold.
Trump running the show...backing out of China? Try kickstarting an economy without cheap consumables and concrete?
With monies owed and western crashes we will forever be in China's back pocket. We borrow they build and run the show.
Not a racist comment just a fact. If an angry old man decides to bury a generation from his ivory tower then he should be classed as a criminal of war (not many leaders dodge that elite group)
Don't think China are blameless but the scary thing is that Trump is one of the boys that views his land as his and his people seperate.
He would go without out of spite rather than do the right thing.
More to follow on this as I can't see these riots being defused without that cop being executed on live tv by family members of the victim.
That's morbid Hollywood.
What i do expect is extra bits of news fake or otherwise.
It will take something horrific Or a monumental further loss of life.
That video is brilliant.Not just the Irish-American Diaspora that should know better, Scots-Diaspora should too as many fled to the States after the Highland clearances.
To be fair, it was a group of Confederate officers who were Scottish descent. Hardly all Presbyterians. Nobody likes anybody tarring an ethnic group with the one brush. That's not fair and no worse than a racist saying all black people are criminals.That video is brilliant.
I was saying the other day how depressing it is that so many of the Irish came to emulate the bosses and the screws of home by joining the police, while the Presbyterian Scots formed the KKK. I suppose socio-economic conditions might excuse one - though, did they have to do it with so much vigour? - but not the other at all.
Oh aye, it's a very similar statementThat's not fair and no worse than a racist saying all black people are criminals.
It's more than a principle: It's the law. It's called the Posse Comitatus Act of 1877 and it forbids the armed forces from doing law enforcement. You are right that the workaround is using the National Guard (not part of the "armed forces" per se), which has been used in the past (Kent State, Jackson State) with fatal circumstances.It's a principle of our nation that combat troops cannot be deployed on our streets.
True. Already we are seeing vigilantes taking up posts on buildings. It's going to get worse before it gets better.Every peaceful protest that is met with violence breaks us a little more. In a nation that treats guns as appliances we are in for a storm.
