  1. Minneapolis has been trying to revamp its Police force for years. The last 3 mayors have tried. There is a huge issue with the head of the police union blocking changes. He is a big MAGA supporter and more. Their Blue Wall starts there.
  2. The one thing you NEVER see in any of these videos is ANY attempt by the police do descalate or calm things down. It should be there 1st response. Or at least I think so. Back to the farm lessons lol , If you have wild horse or cow you don't start screaming at it and grabbing it. You talk quietly and calmly to bring it's level down.
  3. I think their issues rest on both training and the vetting process ( or lack of it ) in their hiring process. It also goes hand in hand with the race/ political issues. As I said the biggest problem is I bet he suffers no consequences for the punches. It wouldn't happen if he knew he would be fired over it. There is no accountability.
  4. The thing is that cop who gives him those unnecessary shots will remain on the job. At best be scolded not to do that. Next time he overreacts he may have his gun in hand. A part of what seems to be missing in their training is it is part of their job to NOT react.To NOT get drawn in .
  5. Ontario is sure going into a hard lockdown. Some people are questioning the power they have given the police to enforce it but their hospital situation is desperate. I just wish that were stopping traffic going out as well as in. There's no way Manitoba dodges this. Get ready. By the way I read about a variant of the Brazilian variant that has shown up in Brazil. The big noticble difference is it also seems to be hitting children as well. Its also hits mildly to start then after 10 or 12 days hits very hard. Sorry I have no link as I can't remember where I read it. Maybe the Guardian.
  6. Yes, a while back I just quit watching the news . I guess I was full of the insanity and had to let it settle.
  7. About the middle you will find Fauci responding to Tucker Carlson's suggestion that the vaccines don't work. Pure frigging insanity. You would think that with the American propensity to sue Carlson would be in court. They are all nuts.
  8. I phoned on Wednesday April 7 , the day I was eligible at 63 and was booked for Sunday April 11. Maybd its a rural / city thing ?
  9. I think it's really tough for us to understand what it is like to a black person in the US. Do we have racism in Canada? Of course we do. But people of colour here don't live in terror of having their children pulled over. Milt Stegal's comments a while back made me really think . He said they weren't worried at all about their driving aged kid driving recklessly, drinking and driving, speeding.........All they concentrated on was what to do when you are stopped by the police. They live in fear of it. I dont think we CAN understand it., I dont think we CAN understand what it is like to see wh
  10. Good suggestions. I think the UBI is still important. As robotics / AI and Mega corparations continue to advance the world has 2 choices, more people on sub human wages or UBI that is paid for by a tax system that is truly equitable. I just don't know how we can make it happen ( the 2nd choice )
  11. No but they got a big thank you from me lol
  12. Arrived at Morden Super site for 5:40 appointment.Came in at 5:25 .Needled and Done and waiting the 15 minutes by 5:45. It can't get much better than that.
  13. So in all likelihood the difference between the %14 reported by the U of S and Kives%18 is the lower amount probably doesn't include the ones by indigenous communities. OR the U of S didn't have today's numbers although it said was reporting as of Friday at noon
  14. From what I can glean from "Covid Tracker Canada " a U of S project, we( MB ) are a shade under %14 vaccinated. Alberta a bit over %14. BC + Ontario a bit over% 17. Quebec over% 20 .Nova Scotia is under %11. What I'm not sure about is if those numbers include our indigenous communities and if all provinces report that the same.
