Didn't you say earlier in this threat that there's no way they'd send four cops for a white man? What if the white man had a really long history of involvement with the law just as Geroge Floyd did? Nup - according to you that's just racist.Yeah - they DO send multiple cops when you have a violent history. When I was living in Melbourne I was surprised to find three cops on my doorstep one night around 10pm - as it turns out they were looking for a former tenant who had long moved on. But I knew enough about that bloke that he had a history with the police and they were expecting trouble.
For a minor forgery case, no they would not. Secondly how do you know that the Minnesota Police knew of Floyd's priors? You do not. Another assumption from the great Don Dunstan. There is no national database concerning police records and criminal records that's why bad cops can move from jurisdiction to another. And I have already said that Floyd is no angel, but hell if Dylan Roof is still alive after shooting 9 people in a church, then Floyd still deserves to be alive.
No deserves to die like that and you can whinge about white people receiving the same. Just show me an example of a white person being apprehended, forced to the ground in the plain view of everyone in the street and having the life choked out of him for a minor crime. Yes he was high, but he was not resisting arrest. All those are facts and you just blow it off. You moan that it is all about race with me, it is certainly with you. Get it through your thick head, I do not think that White people are inherently racist, I thing that some US cops are, and there is not an argument. That is just a fact. 19% of population is black in Minneapolis but 7 times more likely to be stopped by the police.Probably because they're poor - or are more likely to be poor.
Absolutely terrible and my heart goes out to Dorn. I hope that young man gets put in prison for a long time. Black on black crime is a scourge, no doubt, and black people as a community has to deal with this head on. But of course people like you are using that as a political talking point because if he was shot by the Police, the narrative would have been different and that's the point. There was hardly any coverage of Arbery and Taylor for 3 months either. You have not voiced any concern about Arbery or Taylor, totally innocent people. And nor has any Conservative media like Fox News either. Taylor was a nurse who was in training and was helping people through this pandemic, but you would not know it from the Conservative media who focused more on Macy's. I am fact free and emotional, but you are the fair minded factual voice or reason. Yep quoting commissions from 25 years ago, one fact about dying in police custody and blathering on about how much you hate the ABC and leftists. I have agreed with you things like Democrats not doing enough in their held cities and stats on crime and you still argue. Its like you are arguing with yourself sometimes. And you try to shut down discussion with anything you don't agree with. You have not address any questions I have posed at all.Yeah but in the meantime dozens of black people murdered by other black people and not even in the national consciousness. What questions? You need to be a bit more specific.
Why are you talking about Country VIC? Another red-herring. Didn't I say that Australia was a mostly a tolerant society. But if you think there is not a race problem that needs to be addressed with our Indigenous population, then Don you are sticking your head in the sand. You got turned over by the Police, so? Shouting at the top of your voice does not make for a good argument Don. You have not given any convincing arguments at all just your belief. I just believe that race plays no part in what is happenning, without any convincing argument other than, it is me The almighty Don Dunstan who is saying it. Michael
Red-herring is MY saying!
How am I shouting, I'm just saying the cops target anyone and everyone that they think they can fine or pick up doing something naughty. I really don't think they discriminate, they just like to pick targets that are likely to be powerless and unable to defend themselves in a legal sense.
Anyway I think we're just going around in circles now, Michael. Shalom.
