Has anyone here followed the recent and tragic death of George Floyd, its amazing that the mayor comes out and asks for charges to be brought on the man or men responsible.
Its likely to escalate even further now that the four officers have avoided any prosecution, a police station burned down last night, the national guard has been brought in.
The police has started to arrest news reporters during a live broadcast, this is amazing stuff that is happening.May 29, 2020 at 10:24 pm #1846350May 30, 2020 at 7:59 pm #1846529
Bingo, yes it’s a shame, but that’s the USA. It’s always been that way and history shows that it will be a very long ice-age before it ever changes. Roosevelt, Kennedy, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, and Obama, did next to nothing to help the integration of blacks into american society. And Trump definitely has no intention whatsoever of doing otherwise.
Throughout documented historic reality, America is, and always was a complete gun-toting racist basket case and Trump will do everything in his power to ensure that the status quo continues!
MUFC. What on earth is your point on this matter? Feel free to articulate…..

The police officer who had his knee on George’s neck has been charged with third degree murder. Watching the video was shocking, the complete lack of understanding at how serious the situation was by the police involved is scary. Basic training would show that those guys had no idea what they were doing, the one in the front just walking around trying to stop people from leaving the pavement.
Then the ambulance didn’t even ask the officer to remove his knee when they turned up and George was unconscious. Crazy stuff.
Really sad to see.June 1, 2020 at 10:30 am #1846714
Have been reading various message boards and online newspaper comments from people in the UK. One thing I’ve learnt is there are a huge number of racist fuckers in the UK who’ve tried justifying this killing and brushing it under the carpet.
How many times does a black male have to die under horrible circumstances like this? What makes it sickening is that they’d have got away with it if it wasn’t for the video evidence. Even then they seemed reluctant to do anything about it.
I’ve spoke to a few people from the USA in real life and on message forums down the years. They claim that police officers, mayors and senators are KKK members or sympathizers. If true, this explains a lot. Isn’t there a rumor that one of the officers was at a KKK rally?June 1, 2020 at 1:28 pm #1846760
The thing is they are getting away with it, one officer has been charged, all four of them need to be held accountable though… Every officer anywhere around the globe needs to be held accountable for killing someone, having them running around above the law does no one any favors… The US needs to change their structure right now, I don’t think this is going to relent otherwise, we are going 6 days strong now and there are more people flooding to the streets a cross the states. Its amazing to witness it really, I don’t care one bit about the looters and neither does the police. You can see the KKK breaking windows and burning down buildings only to blame it on the protesters, you had a semi-truck drive into a group of a thousand people protesting in Minneapolis yesterday… The worst violence is all done by the cops and by the racist thugs that are trying to incite violence and cause hate to dive and conquer!June 1, 2020 at 1:32 pm #1846763June 1, 2020 at 8:08 pm #1846815
Bingo, the US will never ever change their structure. Their society is, and has always thrived on dog eats dog. The rich get rich and the poor stay poor. It’s what they do and have always done!. The poor and the homeless regardless of race have always been regarded as non-grata. It’s the American way of life. I guarantee that this latest tragic embarrassing blip will blow over and things will get back to sub-normal again. Trump will make sure of it.
Mufc. Over the years the UK has been extremely welcoming to all sorts of people who have been desperate to seek abode here. The UK has paid an enormous price to look after them all. My advice to you is: don’t shit on your own doorstep.

I take it you don’t know many Americans mate, everyone cares about these issues and the public is becoming aware of how impunity laws work but you can see how infected the police is by racisms…
All of my friends over there are in support of the protesting, they also see that its not the public that is looting like the mainstream media states, people are peacefully protesting and getting shot in the head with rubber bullets, they are getting shot in the head with teargas canisters but that only happens in certain states or counties…
The general consensus is that the police needs to reform and be held accountable for their actions, Trump can stick his head into the sand and act like this isn’t an issue but its an election year!June 3, 2020 at 8:28 pm #1847115
Bingo, I was out-stationed in the US for two years twice. Once in the late 80’s and again in the mid 90’s. It was enough. I travelled extensively during that time. The USA population is comprised of everyone under the sun and if you’re rich, you get rich, and if you’re poor you generally stay that way for the rest of your days. Unless you win the lottery.
If I was poor in the US I would rear up and actively support anything that would improve my situation. If that didn’t work, I would emigrate. Wouldn’t you?
Your mates over there I guess are doing alright. I did, but there are millions of people over there who haven’t got a pot to piss in and have no hope whatsoever. When it gets that bad, what have you got to lose? Fuck all.
The police are what they are, some good some bad. The same applies to police everywhere. It’s the nature of the beast. They are only playing the game.
Of course looting is wrong, but a complete dickhead like Trump isn’t going to solve this. No way. But why worry, let’s face it, this entire issue will soon die a death anyway because the media will move on to the next big disaster.
Yep, the future is murder. Enjoy it while you can….

The other three officers have now been charged with aiding and abetting murder.June 4, 2020 at 2:47 am #1847118
“The police are what they are, some good some bad. The same applies to police everywhere. It’s the nature of the beast. ”
In the last few days I’ve seen tens of thousands of police officers that are brutally assaulting their citizens while they peacefully protest on the street, I’ve seen videos of police officers delivering palets of bricks, I’ve seen videos of officers breaking into businesses, I’ve seen videos of police officers shooting people with tear canisters in the face and you are saying some are good and some are bad!
Do you comprehend what is happening at all?June 4, 2020 at 8:50 pm #1847255
“Dude”?? Bingo… really? You can’t be serious. Who on earth in the UK calls anyone “Dude”? It’s Hollywood! Buck up mate. Call me a geezer or bloke or anything vaguely English but don’t call me “Dude”. It’s racist! Try and have a rabbit and pork with someone who knows a bit more than nothing about etiquette.
“In the last few days I’ve seen “tens of thousands” of police officers that are brutally assaulting their citizens while they peacefully protest on the street”.
Really? What about the “tens of thousands” of people who are burning cars, property and looting all over the country for all they are worth! Is that okay in your book?
Do you seriously not comprehend what’s really going on Bingo?
Doodle do dude,
Lenny.June 4, 2020 at 9:28 pm #1847256
Call me a geezer or bloke
Any pics?June 4, 2020 at 10:03 pm #1847258
So what is your point? You never seem to make one. Do try to be just a little more constructive in what you say. Maybe I’m missing something, but the way I see it, other than your terminally irritating links or your played out “any pics?” you say next to fuck all of any consequence whatsoever on here. Do us a favour, go for a long walk and think about it before you come back.June 5, 2020 at 8:20 am #1847273
sorry to disappoint you but I do not engage with racists, its just not worth the effort…June 6, 2020 at 5:49 pm #1847494
Oh do leave it out Bingo. Your numbers are wrong on this. Try Tombola, it’s easier.
In the meantime…
Legs eleven and whistle-whistle.
Lenny.June 8, 2020 at 8:15 pm #1847832
Bingo, no offence but “Black Lives Matter” is a divisive and fraudulent movement.
There is no ‘systemic’ racism on our country! – Digest that.
Our society goes far out of its way to ensure equality to an insane neurotic degree. Discrimination is illegal in this country!
There’s even zero evidence that George Floyd’s killing was driven by racism!
My advice is get off Your knees mate until the fat lady sings!….
If you don’t, you are shooting yourself in he foot.
Lenny.June 9, 2020 at 8:45 pm #1847979
These “Black Lives Matter” demonstrations must surely be offensive to the majority of the population who possess half a brain. What right do these hooded idiots have to group up shoulder to shoulder in their thousands while the rest of us are told to hole-up, keep our distance and fight to curb and hopefully eradicate this disastrous pandemic caused by the Chinese that has crippled our country? It’s insane!
The government must allow the police to go in strong and whack these stupid bastards with everything they have. And I mean everything! The majority of them have their own agenda and it’s obviously not conducive to our way of life.
Any immigrant who has been given the privilege of abode in this country should play by our rules and respect them. If that’s unacceptable, then they are free to return to their own utopia. Just as soon as lock-down is over.
Au revoir and good luck!
Lenny.June 10, 2020 at 4:07 pm #1848120
The view that BLM demonstrators are immigrants is foolish. I also thought I would never see anything akin to ‘go back to your own country’ on teamtalk.
With all that has gone on recently, a little empathy shouldn’t be beyond anyone.
