One point which seems to have been completely overlooked in this incident is the fact that she was a woman falsely accusing a man. We probably all know strong women who are quite capable of playing the "poor, defenceless female" card to gain advantage in a dispute with a man.Jump to post
Well, she did preface her rant against Muslims by saying this Recounting what happened next on popular French chatshow Le Quotidien on Monday, Mila said: “A guy was hitting on me heavily during the live, telling me 'you're beautiful, you're hot, what age are you?” She duly informed those watching t...Jump to post
After Mila's original remarks, in which she described Islam as a "religion of hate", two opposing hashtags sprang up: #JeSuisMila (I am Mila) and #JeNeSuisPasMila. Her comment was made after an interaction with one guy who said he was a Muslim. Just because the guy said mean things about ...Jump to post

By our standards, yeah, that's a logical concern. But their cultural values are obviously different.

Are you kidding? The CCP knows if they closed these markets down they'd have a real citizen mutiny on their hands. Can't shut down something so indelible in the culture.

Braybuddy : so you think law abiding, successful Black American people don't resent the police treating Black people badly, even if it's not them personally ?

Yes education, but a place where kids can go if they have problem at home, a safe place to do something in their spare time , a role model in the local community etc. This was all being done in for example inner London on council estates.

Reading some of the replies here makes me realise just how bad race relations are in the US, and I suspect we have this coming down the tracks in Europe.

They literally choose who dies and are not held accountable beyond "go sit in time out". Others get to decide which police officer dies too.

Sorry, but I have to say that a counterfeit bill is hardly a difficult case. I didn't mean the crime, I meant George Floyd. He was an extremely difficult customer.

Well therein lies the rub. Mr Floyd's crime was relatively minor (to say the least), Chauvin had at least 2 other officers with him and they knew (or at least should have if they were half way competent) at the point in time that he was on the floor that he was unarmed. Yet here we are debating whe...Jump to post
I think you're being far too kind to him. I'd expect similar situations play out in the US several times every day. He was also training the other officers with him. They were stuck between a rock and a hard place and will face a very hefty punishment. Zero sympathy for Chauvin but perhaps just a s...Jump to post
