We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I am sorry but I cannot find any racism in the image. This was a safe way for officer's on horseback to move a LAW BREAKER from point A to point B. Nothing more, this offended scat is really starting to offend me.
Sorry WW, twasn't it a shame every last bloody one of the Galveston's Sheriff & city's LE's vehicles are in the shop or broken down along the city's streets so the two white officers were left in a lurch of what to do after they arrested a 43-year-old man for criminal trespass, a misdemeanor by the way, in downtown Galveston so walked him the eight  blocks to the 'staging area'!
BTW...to answer anybody's unasked question of would I fuss if it was not a person of colour being walked the 8 blocks handcuffed w/ropes tethering them to two LE's on horseback...

This is continuing LE SCAT is what is truly offending...
Quote from COS’ Gazette:
Newly obtained surveillance video shows two white Colorado Springs police officers chase De’Von Bailey, 19, as he runs, then falls after being shot. Bailey died later in a hospital, police said.
...Bailey does not appear to have a weapon, according to experts who viewed the video. The video shows both officers behind Bailey, guns pointed at him, while he sits on the road. Seconds later, he rolls onto his stomach and officers handcuff him.
John Burton, a 40-year lawyer and former board president of the National Police Accountability Project, watched the video Tuesday evening and said it’s very difficult to carry a weapon in the waistband of gym shorts, which Bailey was wearing.
Police said at least one shot was fired. Witnesses said they heard up to seven shots.
Adam Bercovici, a former 30-year police officer in Los Angeles, disagreed, saying officers could be justified in shooting Bailey, even if he didn’t have a gun. [rhetorical pervasive scat spelled in capital letters!] [why he is quoted without any context in a CO LE shooting is a mystery!]
