Are we going to see riots this summer ?

I think that in the US passing a dud note is quite heavy duty on the crime scale.
The Secret Service get involved then it goes downhill from there.
In short, a Federal offence.

We on the other hand don't seem to treat it as being that serious.
I tried to (unknowingly) pass a dud fiver some time ago, the shopkeeper just gave it me back and asked if I had a real one.
Also, because of his previous for being a nasty bastard, he would have gone back inside for it.
 
Also. I stand to be corrected by any Beak, lawyer, Hot Fuzz, night club bouncer, legal wonk or school lollypop lady on arrse, but here you will not be prosecuted for possession of a single dodgy banknote? wallet full - yes?
In Uk, possession would be grounds for arrest.

Much of the time though, discretion would be used. Details taken of the individua passing said note. Note seized and submitted for further investigation by the grown ups. Whether an arrest would be made would depend on the circumstances. Known criminal , yes. Mrs. old dear , probably not. I have had a few dodgy notes passed to me in change and not noticed it until I got home.
 
Report in the Mail suggests that they asked if they could go down and clean it up after seeing it sprayed.
Fair play to them they are a credit to the HCR
I commend their enthusiasm (especially in the face of such provocation) but removal of graffiti from faced stone is a specialist job, and not onr done half-heartedly with barrack floor scrubbing brushes. It is a Listed monument.
 
Fagin.
Fagan was the tramp that got in the queens bedroom a few years back.
He lived in islington and after that little adventure he thought he was above the law and couldn't be nicked. He even had the audacity to stick his head in a carrier of the Met's finest uninvited to berate the occupants. Unsurprisingly it didn't end up quite how he planned it

Absolutely, particularly in STEM, despite that there are many academics are working too corrupt these subjects also.

Bunch of cünts
Physics: 9am lectures most days, long lab sessions at least twice a week, lectures running until 1700 and painful maths subjects that require hours of practice in your own time. Oh and on top of that I helped run a student committee of entertainments technicians.

Politics/History: OMG I've got an 11am seminar this term, how am I going to cope? Plus this timetable is rammed with four hours of contact time a week. I'm so stressed.
 

the clear outstanding case of black people dying disproportionately reeks of hypocrisy

a time when] BAME communities already feel under the cosh.
Yasmin Qureshi, MP for Bolton South East and shadow minister for international development

Diane Abbott, MP for Hackney Central and Stoke Newington and former shadow home secretary

[ministers] should have realised [the disproportionate impact] because one after another, and that was publicised on TV, were doctors and nurses from BAME communities [dying]. It didn’t take a genius to work it out.
Tulip Siddiq, MP for Hampstead and Kilburn and shadow minister for children and early years

they’re attempting to say, ‘Oh, it’s all these comorbidities like obesity and diabetes’, so it’s not really that that black people are facing a particular issue [of structural racism].
Bell Ribeiro-Addy, MP for Streatham

even in the pandemic, even in the lockdown, the application of the law has been discriminatory towards BAME people
Rupa Huq, MP for Ealing Central and Acton

They’re scared about speaking out, because they’ve been discriminated against for long.
Abena Oppong-Asare, MP for Erith and Thamesmead

we will be judged on how we sought to eradicate the virus of individual and structural racism by dealing with the conditions that have created it.
Mark Hendrick, MP for Preston

The minister repeating the black lives matter [slogan] when so much loss is occurring and you don’t do anything about it, then it’s hypocritical, isn’t it?
Afzal Khan, MP for Manchester Gorton

I’ve had over 200 emails from people concerned about [the killing of] Floyd George, Belly Mujinga and the tensions in the UK. A lot of these issues are interconnected.
Navendu Mishra, MP for Stockport

I feel the pain of all these politicians. It is clear that the most effective action to be taken - and I'm being very, very serious in light of the above - is to mandate a lockdown of all non-essential BAME people until the situation has changed to the better. Not only will fewer people of all colours, sexes and ages die (which will undoubtedly be proven by the subsequent evidence yet to be assessed), but fewer shops will be looted, fewer people hurt and less property burnt. If there is a politician in the Government with the courage to declare this a necessary measure, I'm sure that all the legitimate 'communities' in the nation would applaud.

(I've sent a Letter to the Guardian along these lines, but am willing to take bets on it being published. There is a disconnect far larger than the Floyd George-associated one in the minds of many at the moment, which can actually be drilled down to WTF? A number of more grounded black people (Candace Owens for one) have commented, but they don't tick the Virtue box, and will be ignored.)

The real damage to society will be considerable, as real hatred is kindled, as 'unity' is despised and Ourselves Alone becomes a slogan again.

Sounds to me like the BAME MPs are using this issue as a power grab.
 
ACC Kenny McDonald has told Polis Scotland officers they will be allowed to, "take the knee" during BLM demonstrations this weekend.

Give me fcuking strength...,
 
This is true.
However, I'm sure that 4 attending coppers might have found a better restraint method than that which was used.
I heard that of the four attending coppers, three were probationary, and had only just started in job. One was on his third shift. The guy doing the murder, however, had a decade or two under his belt, so really really should have known better.
This neatly explains why the other three didn't intervene, as I doubt anyone would have challenged a superior in that balance.

Not even a “are you sure he’s faking unconsciousness boss?”
