    Thanks for posting that Bill. I saw it the other day, and oh man so much respect for that kid. And is amazing hair. And I feel super fortunate that I got to go to private school where this sort of teaching would not fly at all.

    Reminds me of my trip to Cambodia. Anything but the paved road you're driving on is a no-go.

    Among other news, Nawaz Sharif has won the Pakistan polls almost certainly. Tehreek-e-Insaaf, led by former cricket captain Imran Khan will form the main opposition. The ruling Pakistan People's Party finish a distant third, in response to the widespread corruption and security fears under their regime.
    There have been allegations of rigging and the polls were marred by violence resulting in 24 deaths, but there was a historic 60% turnout, as opposed to the 48% in 2008.

    When it comes to the US i don't really worry about the police doing anything

    When it comes to eastern europe i just tend to assume that you'd run afoul of them at some point

    But in general i'm a huge pussy and tend to worry about unlikely things. Most of them i am aware aren't very reaslistic

    I'm involved with the Community Leadership Institute (CLI).

    On race day, we always have to explain to the white kids that none of the Palabra kids can call the cops when something goes wrong. And then the Palabra kids tell stories of how their family and friends have died because the cops and EMTs didn't give a shit about another brown body. And then the kid from down South tells us about his older sisters, who were lynched by police officers.

    My own experiences with cops have been pretty mixed. My worst experience was when they called me a faggot and told me to join the military.

    Maybe I'm wrong and the police everywhere are much better. But the regular news sure doesn't paint that picture.

    And how did zeph jump from policing to land mines in Bosnia? Something along the lines of "if you can brave the Merican powlease then boznern mines are just too eazy brah"

    Regular news doesn't get ratings/views/comments from stories about the average cop investigating a home robbery.

    Not scarred, but it's a big thing for me. I'm used to the English way of law & order. Your stuff just looks too radical and heavy handed. And by that I'm referring to the actual sentencing too.

    I think he was equating you seeing police brutalities, which actually aren't common and using that as a basis to not visit. I think...maybe.

    My students say they'll never do a study abroad in America expressly because they're afraid of being gunned down in the suburbs/major tourist cities by Generic American Gunman.
    Better not let them know about the equally terrifying Police Death Squads.

    For the record, Do The Right Thing wasn't a documentary.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    We could always use more visitors to employ in our flourishing False Flag Operations, too.

    i know this.

    The thing is, if we have footage showing police misconduct, we have a rapid inquiry into the incident. I also can't grasp why so many incidents have to involve the use of a side arm.

    well now, that is dumb.

    I'm going to let this go. Just saying I think you folks could do better. As for why some of you can't understand my view.....consider it from my perspective if everything you learnt about the US police departments stemmed from the news/Internet.

    I can't draw on personal experiences as I've never been there.

    You will never even see a police do anything aside from stand around in a tourist area, let alone beat people up. As for heavy sentencing that varies incredibly state to state. We don't even have the death penalty up here anymore.

    And on the police issue - you know most of them just want to get through their day with the least amount of paperwork. It's the special ones that don't adjust to the position of power they're in that cause all the trouble.
