    Hang on - there's BB guns . . .

    And there's BB Guns . . .

    [​IMG]

    And according to the article - the 13 year old didn't have the brightly painted type of BB gun - he had the one that looks like a real gun

    The end result is the 13 year old still ended up dead, and lord knows, the US police don't need any excuse to shoot anyone

    Given that unarmed people get shot with frighten regularity, what the hell were the parents doing letting a kid go outside with what appears to be, to all intents and purpose, a real gun . . .

    Oh! sorry, it's 'Merica, where even the most basic of fire arm instruction is frowned upon . . . in which case, shit happens, move on, nothing to see here - tune in next week to see the where the next kid's been killed

    Could you give a couple of examples of firearms instruction being frowned upon?

    <started to write a long and partially researched response - then realised that if you're black none of it would matter anyway>

    You're right Pickman's model, all the examples I was going to give you would, in this case, have amounted to naught and the kid would have still most like end up being shot

    Dunno <shrug> it's a shit situation and I don't know how it's going to be changed or if there's a real will for there to be change from the people doing the shooting (cops) or the people in the position to put a check on the amount of fire arms in the US - that horse, I think, is long gone . . . but, slavery was put to an end, prohibition was introduced and repealed . . . so the American constitution can be altered when there's a will . . . obviously, not enough black people or children are being killed yet, on a regular enough basis, to get the momentum behind the change to make it happen. I wonder what that total of dead people would look like

    You hear a lot about gun control being frowned upon but tbh I have never heard of firearms instruction being frowned upon and it seemed such a peculiar thing to say in the context of the shooting I asked for more information about it. Still none the wiser what point you wished to convey or why.

    Honestly mate, I don't know the point I was trying to make - I do, but I struggle to articulate it AaarrrHHH!!

    Okay < deep breath>

    <delete reply one - going off on a tangent . . . again>

    Try again

    Nope, Pickman's model I WILL come back to this when I've got what I want to say right in my head

    I'm sorry, but that's absolute nonsense. They give gun training and safety classes for the girl scouts here.

    I want us to also consider the impact of psychological and emotional violence... How we are shaped by it, what we come to expect, the things that troubles our souls and attacks the perception of who we are and how we should/need to be.



    A short vid... a local cop taking the piss and getting some enjoyment from grooming some small boys on their bikes into the police way and who is in charge , because WHY, NO REASON? :facepalm: Complete total abuse of power and the law. for what reason?

    Watching to the end...check out his rant, his frustration, NO FUCKING JOKE...it's real, I feel that, it's nothing new.

    Heavily edited bodycam footage shows the moment an officer kills a six year old Autistic boy. Of course the pig scum are triying to lie their way through court.

    Not Police Brutality, but an attempt a misuse of authoritarian power..... US corrections officer, lies that he is a police officer, and then claims to be working with interpol in an attempt to get back into a London nightclub (all he had to do was use the front door :facepalm:)

    Massive over reaction to a spot of flag burning on Invasion Day

    faces before anything was even lit!

    Hollande went to see the victim in hospital for a photo op, while the police were scouring the ladybird book of pisspoor excuses and branding him a liar, who presumably faked both his multiple serious injuries and the video footage of the incident. Breathtaking.
