In a sick parody of recent American events, you will see a prone man being tazered and beaten, punched at least six or seven times. Then when another
bystander walks past to see if the man is ok, HE is pushed in the throat.
Absolutely no disrespect to both members who have contributed to this thread (and i know things are just as bad to our US cousins) , i'd much rather
focus on the Uk police in this thread (although i guess brutality IS brutality). Those vids are very shocking although i have seen both of them
before. No just cause for either of those upsetting videos. Swines.
I'm worried that since the introduction of the tazer to the UK, our police may copycat the recent trends in America to use the tazer as an
alternative to physical force (as opposed to a last resort).
I am from UK, but i tend to focus more on US police brutality than UK because we tend to follow their trend, so its seeing what will become of this
country in 5 years time.
It's all down to being drunk with power. So much power is given to the police now that they feel indestructable, and look at the public as
insignificant, thinking that we just get in the way of their job.
As we loose more and more of our rights to the state, the more and more brutality we shall see on the streets by the state.
What usually happens is that people gather with slogans, signs and sing chants etc.
An officer will batter one protestor over the head, then proceed to drag that person away from the crowd, this countinues all throughout the day and
it really does not matter what the person is doing in the crowd.
The crowd holds hands and some point their fingers at the protestor being dragged away as they say things to each other such as "the police cant do
that", "thats against our rights", "this is not a democracy", "this cannot actually happen", "He/she did not do anything" etc usually they
record this and post it on youtube.
People cannot accept reality, they are too scared of what is happening to accept the fact that right now if your going to protest or speak up, your
going to end up eventually facing a baton and arrest or worse.
Protesting does absolutely nothing apart from give you a bit of excitement in life unless your protest serves the agenda of the government ie climate
camps and all that nonsense. The people who are protesting observe the laws. The whole thing is nothing more than compliance yet again.
What has never been done however yet is targetting specific things, one example, if people in the UK do not like cctv cameras. Rather than protesting,
writing to parliament and yelling at the tv, all of which everyone knows does nothing. Cut the damn things down in large groups. Simple. Yes, some
might be arrested, some might get a beating etc but thats no different from protesting and taking action gets things done instead of waiting for a pen
pusher to notice you.
Works with anything but it wont happen.
This song really does sum up the UK right now....
This has nothing to do with whether the song is good or bad because thats not worth even discussing things like that in a topic like this. Listen to
All part of consumption and thats the created problem that is fed by the people that everyone wants to do something about.
Look at the early 90's in the UK before all the mass information that was fed to people, they did not give two hoots and tore the place a new
But anyways, seen that new i pod or have you read that law about how the police cannot attack you for no reason?
In my opinion the UK is not far off rioting but rather than thinking about the problems and specifically targeting them, its the usual go to london
and trash things like a bunch of animals. Animals get put down if they bite the hand that feeds them.
But hey, at least there will be a video of it all on youtube so that it can be discussed on a blog?
You can have all the information in the world with no wisdom but you do not need all the information to have wisdom.
