Go the "Don"
Shane Trump has done zip zero nothing to end human rights abuses in America, unarmed citizens are being murdered by police systemic injustice caused by the war on drugs needs to end permanently Bidens half arsed support for decriminalisation of marijuana is not enough but it is a step in the right direction to repair the harm that has been caused by the drug war , if the referendum gets over the line in New Zealand in September and Biden gets elected in November Morrison and every lying conservative in Australia are going to have no justification to continue their marijuana war in Australia and Mr Sheen will find himself offside with the kiwis his new American master and the majority of Australians .
Trump is fighting uphill on human rights for even American Citizens .. there is so much corruption in so many places from endemic sales of fetuses to BIG Pharma , shell game financial sectors , contaminated food supplies , and the bi-partisan motive is corporate profits ( and kick-backs )
and the few citizens that are murdered by police pales in comparison to citizens ( including medical professionals ) murdering other citizens
i reckon the police should resign ( cashing out all their pensions while they still have some pension to cash in ) build their homes into forts and wait 4 or 5 years , and see what the states are willing to pay .. and then demand double
don't worry about Biden he can't even remember whose husband he is .. he is just a decoy for whoever the DNC want to sneak in as president and you can bet that won't be Sanders or Gabbard
Roger Stone is a name we will be hearing a lot his good buddy has just seen fit to spring him from the clink . Decriminalisation of marijuana will still allow intrusions into people lives addicts need medical care that neither police or prisons are qualified to provide. Sanders has had an uphill battle from day one Americans have no timeframe of when Biden intends to decriminalise marijuana the results of testing or whatever the senile old coot is waiting for wont be done in ten years or in any of our lifetimes everything he is saying is a total farce , if Biden is elected there will bee watered down social law reforms for another four years and he might finally decriminalise marijuana by act of law in 2024 if he thinks it will be useful to get himself re elected.
If the democrats get the majority of the senate they wont need Biden on board to legalise dope in 2021, Trump could be nothing but a bad memory in november
the black lives matter protests would not be happening if the police were not murdering unarmed citizens in the street , too many American police have no respect for the minority communities that they are supposed to serve and protect , the overwhelming evidence of three million Americans in jail says most police manipulate corrupt drug laws to fill up jails with drug addicts because they know their drug war has failed and they fear the murderous well armed drug dealers who have senoir police judges and politicians in their pockets . .
I was at a function in Sydney back in the 1990s and fella at our table was a black basketball player from Alabama who commented how much he loved being in Australia because most people in Australia DNGAF what colour your skin is. The protests are happening because most people are outraged that police are killing black people in the street and locking them up for smoking joints , it is not 1970 anymore the 70 year old white man who got in the way of riot police had is skull cracked by police for being in the wrong place at the wrong time , people are demanding social justice reform most white people on earth support black lives matter protests .
if the US cared about black people they would STILL be rioting over the old coloured folks killed in New York hospitals ( and some other states ) claiming they had 'Covid '
if they really cared about justice they would clean the bad cops ( and lawyers and judges ) from the legal system might as well put the torch on the 'lawmakers ' ( aka politicians ) as well
that old white was scanning the police communications so they could be jammed later he is probably lucky they didn't 'black bag' him and wring out all the information they wanted .. not the wrong time just the wrong group of cops would be interesting to hear if he was copying official IDs as well
am surprised they didn't at least seize the phone
All public servants have a duty of care to protect the public they serve , if an Australian cop lost his mind and murdered a person in the street his/her colleagues would restrain and arrest them on the spot , everyone who saw the footage witnessed the hatred in the eyes of Mr Floyds murderer and his colleagues who stood idly by and watched Mr Floyd being murdered. .
a big difference between carrying and inspired to use that firearm/weapon as well
have mixed with plenty of security when they are on duty , have often police creep their hands to the weapons belt when the security guard would handle the potential threat without reaching
another issue is 'police culture ' where they automatically stereo-type citizens
British police don't carry weapons i think it would be impractical for the police in America not to carry firearms, we need to support our institutions lawlessness cant be tolerated regardless of who is committing crimes. Trump commuting the prison sentences of buddies like Roger while he supports a for profit policy of locking up drug addicts as a preferred treatment option does not exactly inspire public confidence that the rule of law applies to all Americans equally .
the British Police on normal street patrol has a different mentality and a different relationship with the citizens ( both lawful and criminal )
the US has a different mentality and US police training does something to amplify the problems
Trump is TRYING to empty the prisons of non-dangerous inmates and Trump has done less in pardons or commutations than several predecessors
if Trump is to empty the jails he will have to also reform the rehab system which is often a recruiting system for bigger criminals
will Trump do much extra to improve things if he wins a second term .. i guess time will tell
If Trump gets a second term a military war against China is a certainty the damage Trump has done to date will look minor if the Americans are stupid enough to give him a second term ., Trump wants to increase prison numbers by another couple of million if he gets a second term he will do what Australia does arrest and jail sick people for using legal marijuana medicines..
