They are talking about Kaepernick, taking knees and the NFL.
Which is what you and I were talking about.
You would know that if you had listened to them.
I didn't listen, because I didn't need to, read my post again and it might sink in why.
 
At least other pictures create more context.

Looks to me like they ran right past him to start trouble, Maybe the police were firing at them and he got hit by a stray, regardless, the rioters obviously seen him and didnt give a shit to push hiom out they way.



Nor come to help him

what a shame the un cropped image shows the JBTs firing at the crowds with zero regard to him bring in their line of fire

Oh dear, that's going to cause some tears.
...

Why didn't they just let them get on with it, and not have to do an embarrassing and public U turn later, Begins with T and ends in rump is your clue.
...

Why don't they take a knee for <insert cause here> with a minutes silence then stand for the national anthem, problem solved?

I suspect because they hate the country but love the money they are being paid to be on that pitch by the fans and US companies sponsoring them, who would back such a measure as i suggested.

"because insulting millions of people will lose your message"


That's nice dear, shame it has nothing to do with what I posted, but carry on.

What that has to do with anybody other than Trump I don't know, was the clue a bit too cryptic perhaps? And for persec reasons, I'd delete your selfie.

Oh dear.

Wheels is facing 90 degrees to bazooka and he is already bleeding, he was in the same position in the shot where the rioters are charging police.
The motion in the legs of the police and lack of motion in wheels suggest he was already idle when the police started moving forward, Bazooka's line of fire in perspective is raised well above and to the left of wheels.
Hint, you can use the curb to create the perspective and the Hydrant and traffic cone as distance in all the photos

I even gave you the relevant post and still you don't see it, yet I'm the senile one, oh dear.

Not straws my withered feind, They are my fingers being held up to see if you are still conscious.

Yeah, you mentioned Trump.
What I replied was nothing to do with Trump, It was the Kaepernick incident, YOUR LINK, NOT TRUMP.

PMSL

I give up.
Go and have yourself a nap, It's almost 2.30.

You are that dense then, remarkable. Here's another clue, not quite so cryptic for you this time
 
You are that dense then, remarkable.
You were referring to "causing some tears" as to Trump himself?

I thought you meant the people who thought what Kaepernick did was counterproductive, like me.
Like my links, like my suggestion.
Your link was about the NFL backtracking on the whole affair.

Trump didn't even cross my mind, The kneeling was never about him.

If thats the case, Crossed lines it is then.

So Trump did have an opinion on it, well so did 99% of America and 50% of the planet.
And as I recall, shit loads of fans didn't agree with the kneeling but did agree with the cause.

Of course, once the SJWs got hold of it, It became completely polarised and the message was lost, Producing no middle ground, like so many other things they taint with their ideology.


Blackout Tuesday is now a lasting example of virtue signaling killing the message.



play the video


Then again, the same type of people told everybody to light a candle when Manchester got bombed and all those kids died at a concert.

No protests then were there, nope just a vigil.

maybe @PhotEx could chip in and claim the whole Blackout was a nazi fascist conspiracy

As others have said there are about fifty forces in the UK and with the exception of the specialists like the Transport Police, MoD and Nuke Plod they are all unitary and responsible for all policing within their area. There's not the same profusion of campus(!)/town/city/county/state police forces.
Is that specialists in the RAF Regiment way?

43 in England and Wales, 1 each in Northern Ireland and Scotland, plus 3 strategic forces i.e. MoD Police, CNC and BTP.
You forgot the various cathedral and university constabularies!

I:d forgotten about them... And all the various port police forces too.
And British Transport Police

To compare to the US you also need to include our "FBI" and other national agencies. Agencies such as the National Crime Agency are another form of law enforcement.

I think the issue isn't so much the number of agencies but their jurisdiction. In the UK it's quite clear. MoD Plod on MoD property, BTP on the rail network, regional forces in their regions and so on. Then you have the agencies with national jurisdiction, such as the NCA and Special Branch.

We have 2 or 3 law enforcement agencies in any given area.

In the US you can have dozens. Campus police in a university, with local city police, sheriff office, state bureau of investigation and FBI could all try to claim jurisdiction if an offence takes place on or a suspect is on a uni campus.
