Warning: do not click on the link below if you are in a bad place right now. There are multiple videos of police brutality. However, I would urge you to watch if you're getting angry about crowds throwing plastic bottles or property damage.

We could exchange videos of upsetting actions on both sides - especially in the US rioters have committed some terrible crimes. But we have to remember that the police are trained professionals, and the vast majority of people on the streets are there to peacefully protest.

Apparently a police horse was on the loose in London today and he knocked someone over very hard
----------------------------------------------------------------------
You mean the police horse that had object thrown at it by a protester. The police woman riding was knocked off unconscious and the horse bolted.

Pranks, this video is a bit grainy but it doesn't look to me like it happened because an object was thrown. Seems like there's objects flying all over, her horse bolts and she rides into a traffic light.

According to the mirror

"Footage shows the moment the police officer collided with a traffic light, causing her to fall off a horse during the demonstration."

However I've seen other news reports saying a bike was thrown at the horse and the video is really poor quality so maybe you're right and something was done by a protester to spook the horse like that.

The closer angle towards the end doesn’t show anything being thrown. You see the officer go to charge just before the other police horses to as everyone in front of her start to run away.

This is what happens when you run red lights.

Why are they laughing and applauding? This whole protest is losing its key message

I’ve seen different reports, plenty say different objects were thrown at the police horse causing it to bolt.
Subsequently throwing the female officer off leaving her unconscious.

Come on. Don't confirm his prejudices like that.

I don't want this thread to become an echo chamber. I'm just asking for a bit of honesty and respect.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Agreed. Reading back through the last pages this looks really ridiculous.

NPE is a decent poster who is actually interesting to talk to, but he also generally wears his heart on his sleeve.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Wears his heart on his sleeve? What an understatement...

Hes the most toxic and abusive poster on the thread, he will be fine to chat to until you disagree with him then he just ruins the thread with insults.

Sometimes he will come on to the thread starting off with insults.

Admin asked for people to stop referring to trumpian Americans as potato fackers yet he constantly says that anyone who disagrees with him "mates with vegetables" .

Hes always the architect of his own downfall starting the abuse then crying that he's being bullied. There are endless examples where even people who often agree with him, and share opinions with him have "bullied him"

I have no idea how he manages to function in the real world. He's aggressive and immature, A poor combination.

...

And yet, he has the capacity to hold decent thought provoking conversation, all he needs to do is what I'm sure many of us do, take a step away and come back to it later. His reactions are a choice that I sincerely hope he will stop making, because his contributions to the thread are interesting.

What we all having for Saturday night dinner?

We are having Spanish food... in from a woman having a Spanish night, in aid of her husband who has a condition making him wheelchair bound.

All for charity, so wife bungs her 30 quid....we could have got a massive Indian for that.

I hate my first world life.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Enjoy your dinner. There was no one to do the cooking today so we are having what's usually a daytime meal, our usual pudding with bananas, oranges, mango, avocado, pawpaw, kiwi, passion fruit poured on and might have missed out a few others

All with scoop of pineapple ice cream on the top which does well to shut up the kids. My serving is so huge its on a tray as the plates ain't big enough.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Haha.

Your food sounds superb, Jorgen.

Over £700 was raised for the charity dealing with people suffering MD, so a successful Spanish food day....and the food was good too.

Pork based dish with rice and peppers and lemon sponge cake with fresh cream desert.

Nandy on Marr

Made a valid point about how we rightly condemn the Chinese and police in HK, yet are slow in sections of society and govt in the West to call out police brutality here.

Personally, as a woman of colour and northerner,
Plus someone not attackers leavers, I though Nandy would have made a good leader, but I get how Starmer got the nod.

I think the BLM and other protest organisers are justified in much of their campaigns, as black men especially suffer in America, but to bring huge crowds out in America, UK, Germany, Paris and Oz is not wise during covid19.

Black lives are more likely to be impacted by covid as science and ONS stats reveal, so why again today are people being told to march outside American embassy in London?

I sometimes refer to walking in others shoes, and as a white male in an all white NI society, I can only imagine what it's like to be black, so one thing I have learned from recent events is to listen to black voices, here and across the world.

I keep seeing white silence = violence or death for Black people, and that annoyed me, as 99% of white people called out the Floyd murder and so many join protests.
Attacking white people verbally and shouting white privilege at us is counter productive and uses identity politics to divide, even though historically, we can agree slavery and racism shape society.

There have been positives out of a grim death, and I think more white folk now empathize with black people, and if people from the black community say they are suffering, it's not up to me to say, no you are not and all is ok.

Hopefully, cops in America are held to account more and more black people join the police too.....and in future, if a cop is abusing their position, his colleague will call them out.

And also, those preaching hate and violence against police in UK and USA are isolated as the fringe freaks they are.

Peace.

Ken Marsh of the police federation says the WPC is injured, after panicked horse threw her and she hit traffic lights, but she is stable in hospital.....there was a protestor hurt by the horse bolting and they are ok, as is the horse who made its own way home to barracks.

No need for people to break covid restrictions in mass protests, or to abuse and assault police sent to patrol their illegal protests.
