I hope that people get together and protest. Those of us at WP should start a protest and see how many people join us. I am working on drafting a couple of letters on the issue, one being aimed at a department head that explains how the officers in their department seem to be acting counterintuitiv...

Maybe in America It's bad. Where its run like a gestapo. But here in UK, Police are generally unarmed and polite, if you dont try to mess with them that is. I personally never had any problem with Police. We are in different countries, that most likely is why we have different experiences. Most of ...

Whenever i have been arrested, the police were nothing but courteous.


With the exception of dealings with one particular department, all encounters with the police seemed to be relentless gas lighting, making up rules, and other forms of bullying.

Yeah? they also murdered Elijah Mclain an autistic black man, and no justice has been served yet in that case. Did this killing of the autistic teen occur before or after Elijah Mclain? not that it matters that much seems the police can murder at will without facing actual consequences regardless. ...

I gathered they are filing bankruptcy to relocate from NY to Texas, not debt. I could have misread.

I think ego plays a part in it thinking it is ok to test the limits on me because I have a disability. Perhaps so, alas. Another of the many, many reasons why we need a stronger autistic rights movement than we have now. (And why, therefore, we need to build a much better organized community than w...

More funding would enable cops to do proper investigations and gather better physical evidence, in lieu of their current over-reliance on (intrinsically unreliable) witness testimony and confessions. Currently, the main go-to strategy for investigating crimes is to pressure suspects into making (so...

How would more funding for police help with problems caused by officers who let their egos get in the way of making the right decision?

While it will vary by locale a lot of woke things are going to become policy now. Whomever objects or argues for even moderate positions are going to have the debate basically closed because you and whatever you are arguing for WILL be associated with the MAGA’s and their Republican enablers. Argue...

Not surprising about Cheney, when you consider her dad's boss has even spoken against what happened.

Reminds me of all the right wing pundits complaining that big tech cancelling trump’s social media accounts is a violation of the first amendment of the US constitution. Um, no, it isn’t.. because big tech isn’t government & thus it does not apply. Anyways, my point is that these looney tunes i...

I think that last part about the reporters noses bleeding before collapsing to the floor should should have been a major clue that it satire. I'll admit. I bought into it for about two or three sentences. Not to mention, the idea all through out the article that impeachment is some sort of highly c...

I've been watching the live impeachment debate and the most notable thing is a majority of Republicans doggedly presenting a mix of "Democrats have always been against Trump", "But what about those other riots?", "President Trump is a man of peace" - and a really worry...

Oh.  I thought we were discussing only the Republicans currently in the Senate, not past presidents. I'm watching the impeachment vote on BBC.  I suspect the Republicans will split into "moderate" - supporting the impeachment, trying to save the face of conservatism - and "hardcore&q...
