I read in the grown ups paper today, that he had moved to Minne` to be near his young daughter and had been working as security guard ? good background checking thereInteresting; I hadn't heard that, the media are absolutely flagellating over the gentle giant and he was a big fella. Having seen something of the world, people like the police react in that way, when feeling nervous and scared, you overreact and clearly floyd gave the police that feeling. One wonders how the officers in question can get a fair trial, when the media and politicians have already convicted them...
As an aside a good example of media bias is C4 News last night highlighted some graffiti next to the white house and failed to mention it was the infamous church whose windows were put out and trump visited. I thought it the essential problem with what we are told and by intentionally omitting a piece of information that would change perception, we are instead essentially lied too.
I was speaking to a young lady of colour yesterday, , I do know her well, she was going to buy an Audi to replace her written of VW but decided on a white ford FiestaWoman on GMB (talking about the London demonstration ) saying she doesn’t know when the next black man will be brutalised or murder led by the police. Does the UK police regularly kill people?
PS- Piers and Susannah get on my fecking nerves.
Why did heavily armed security contractors let loose in iraq ? my theory, has always being its less about sociopathic behaviour and more to do with fear and how you try to remain calm, when your adreline is off the scale...... Clearly a coppers job in america is immensely hard and its hardly unsurprising these sorts of events happen. I wonder how a black female officer would deal with a 6ft 6in black criminal.I read in the grown ups paper today, that he had moved to Minne` to be near his young daughter and had been working as security guard ? good background checking there
if he was doing that why the need to pass dodgy dosh
anyway his 6 year old daughter us upset that daddy wont be around to see her walk down the aisle , I would hate to be the first person to tell her that had he survived, he walking her down the aisle may have been a tad difficult from his likely location in the state slammer
It’s the Princess Diana effect. He’s no longer around, so they can totally re-invent him. Sainthood to follow!...I splurted a mouthful of tea across my shreddies (...to be clear, I refer to Shredded Wheat rather than undercrackers) yesterday morning when on 5Live this was all being discussed and the Floyd fella was described in hushed tones as being a 'gentle giant'... ffs!! Gentle??! GENTLE??!!!
It's not a competitive sport...So only white people who get murdered make the news?
So who has heard of the Stephen Lawrence murder?
Who has heard of the Kris Donald murder? Kris Donald was a white CHILD who was murdered by an Asian gang.
I’m pretty sure everyone over a certain age has heard of Stephen Lawrence but most people would have to google Kris Donald.
Rosa Parks is a hard act to live up toMrs S seemed to have a video last night on social media that showed the innocent cherub having to be dragged back out of the police car for kicking off before the cops knelt on him.
Naturally it soon disappeared because you can't justify looting your nearest Nike store if it turns out he was a bit of a thug.
Rosa Parks he wasn't
I listened to a very interesting interview with this young man, he struck me as hard working , and aware of his luck in being given a foothold into the world of high level acting
They have been spoke to I gatherIt’s had a deescalatory effect when used by some police forces in the US but in the first picture in post #370 it looks lame and the punters still look hate filled. On that showing, the Met taking a knee is ‘trying too hard’ like police cars painted in ‘Pride’ colours.
Careful, you're using logic and reasoning to frame a subversive question...Why is he always described as half black and never half white?
Nah, have you seen the weather forecast blud?So, how long before the copycat bullshit spreads to Brum, Manchester, Bristol etc? I'll give it 48hrs.
I wonder how this would have been dealt with if it had been a VLM demo. "VLM?" I hear you say. Veterans Lives Matter.We supposedly live in a system which puts the law above everything, except when it suits us not too (breaking social distancing/violence all unlawful). My personal dislike, are those people in a mob, who claim to be good people exercising their democratic rights and somehow the police are supposed to instantly tell the difference betwen them and the bad actors in a mob.
The idea of waiting until poppy and tarquin have returned home and then reacting, is a tactic, but like any good tactic it relies on the enemy not adapting. My view is the bad tempered elements of the mob have not yet being joined by the hardened criminals, but if/when they're do we will see a riot.
I am always a brave man to stick my neck out and my guess is early july, after the remain movement come back out and join with the BLM, we will see a poll tax style riot (with the criminals joining the cause)
