It's quite amazing to me that if one criminal dies while being pursued by police there are thousands of people in the streets, but when 100,000 people get killed from fentanyl imports there are zero people in the streets.
We have become, on the whole, a very dumb society...not just the USA but any 'Western' society that has become saturated with upside down priorities, i.e., whatever it's most fashionable to protest about that week
That is a reflection of the "left" making everything racist in an effort to undermine the US. But consider, that police have been killed defending the public and that gets virtually ignored.
So it's some sort of prayer. I thought it was recreating how that policeman choked the life out of (I forget his name).It started out as a silent public display meant to symbolize the inequality of treatment by police as seen by members of the black community. Rather than stand and perform the correct civilian salute of the flag (right hand over heart), they knelt as in prayer. It has now gotten to the point that the networks rarely show the flag ceremony at the beginning of the games just so the kneelers don't get any more air time.
Punishment fits the crime...I would love to think that is true. I don't think teachers can even "paddle" the students any more here it the states.We had a situation with youths dropping paper and fag ends outside the chip shop. They were caught and publicly flogged with birch twigs.

I wish it was true, maybe a public flogging might bring the perpetrators into normal life instead of beating up old ladies etc etc. Personally I think an eye for an eye punishment should be law. Don't get me started, I feel we are too much a nanny state.Punishment fits the crime...I would love to think that is true.

OK fair enough, it just seemed to start just after that bloke was killed. I get confused with all these demonstrative actions.
I'm still confused by the 1972 Olympics when those black men athletes held their arms up making a fist, that looked nazi-ish to most people in the UK.
