Limerick is a warzone where shootings, pipe bomb attacks, and stabbings happen every night according to Forbes magazine.


Amazing to believe that Americans are still so casually ignorant and racist about Ireland more than 30 years after the invention of the internet.

The article was written by a Dub. Amazing to think that Dubs can still be so casually ignorant and racist and racist about Ireland more than 30 years after the creation of the Internet.

How long until someone pays a vigilante group to dish out punishment,  no point in going to court at all.

A former college student in America being sued  over the suicides of several students he was friends with (he found five bodies in in the space of one year), deaths he stands accused of encouraging. People who know him are on the fence regarding his culpability. Curious behaviour includes wearing their clothes, taking over their Facebook accounts, and trying to hook up with their girlfriends.


Fascinating, if morbid, read.

16 year old gear lunging at people with a knife gets shot and people go out protesting chanting her name? I'm really starting to doubt the intelligence of humans as a race.

I would like to think that police officers should be trained to be able to take down a teenage girl, with or without a knife, without using a gun. If they can't do that then maybe they should find another job that's more suited to their abilities.

It's not like the movies, though. They don't have a lot of time to make a decision when someone is rapidly approaching them with a sharp instrument intended to kill them. It's often a split-second decision.


Haven't heard much about that in the news, oddly enough. Maybe the story isn't sexy enough to be leveraged for political gain.

If there instinct is to pull out a gun, to a knife, then they are too dangerous to be in the police. You can use as many other deaths as you like to point score, but it is that simple.
I'm no fan of the police anywhere, because we all run off the same failed model. Police are generally recruited from the same sections of society where fascism thrives, the only difference is fascists get better training. In America they get trained for about 18 months. I know people who were trained longer to work behind a bar. It needs root and branch change. Again, not perfect,  but there's a lot to be learned from the Nordic nations here. Regardless of that, the instinct to pull out a gun on a teenager, knife or no knife, is incomprehensible.

I just watched the video. If the girl in the pink was my little sister, I'm not sure I'd want the cop to try and talk it out with the person with the knife. She looked to be literally a nanosecond away from making contact with it.


The above is a case in point as to how badly hesitancy or indecision can backfire on a cop. The video is used to train officers in academies.

 I never suggested the cop had to talk her out if it. If trained police officers cannot overpower a teenage girl, knife or bo knife, without a gun then they haven't been trained properly. I know I would fancy my chances in that situation and I am a coward with no training.

The cops are too trigger happy over there. First sign someone is not cooperating or going to cause danger they shoot to kill. 
That is probably their training rather than anything to do with systematic racism

It is a mixture of both. America is still a very racially divided nation and the police merely reflect that. As I said above, the problem with policing in many countries is that they often  recruit from the areas of society who are disenfranchised themselves, then give them minimal training and too much power. The results are really good. The police in its current format is an anachronism that is only accepted as they are paid to defend the interests of the wealthy. It needs anhuge overhaul, not just in the States, but here in England and even at home.

I'd say that's due to everyone in America being allowed to buy a gun.

So the little darling that allegedly stabbed that Mongolian lady in the IFSC a couple of months back wasnt happy at being further remanded calling the judge a “f**king dirty ratbag tramp”.

That cop is fooked, he didn't even try to diffuse the situation or use less than lethal force, gun out bang bang, in the time it took to discharge his weapon he could have taken her down from behind.

He going to jail 
Why no wine??!
