@AFTSOV It's times like this I am so glad I am not American.
It'll go round and round in cycles.
Too many races, creeds, social classes, values all striving for the so called 'democracy', individuality, American dream promised to them.
An absolute shit show.
@redpillschool very good point.
The amount of virtue signalling about this issue is insane at the moment
I think the cop should be convicted, but on a larger scale, black on white crime is much higher and more whites die in police custody.
I don't care about the greater 'issue' that much but if you look at statistics is tells a much different story to what the media are portraying.
Oh for fuck's sake. So they are going to say it wasn't the knee, and it would have happened anyway?
Then why fire them all?
The report says a knee to the back of the head was a contributing factor. Ok, so what sort of a factor?
This guy should at least get manslaughter. I don't really give a shit about the larger racial issue. You can't try him for the bigger issue. But if the knee is a contributing factor, and he literally does nothing to alleviate it then in my book he is liable.
Will they argue that he would have died in custody anyway? How can they truly prove that? What if this guy had taken his knee off, given him some breathing space and the paramedics had kept him alive?
This could go either way. Hopefully the jury
@AFTSOV I'll give that one a look.
I'm always careful with people writing on Jungian ideas. Many aren't Jungian analysts and just do their own spin.
I think the one I mentioned is by a Jung analyst. It's very well written and gives excellent run-downs of the archetypes.
You can always bring archetypes out of your unconcious.
Resistance tubes are the shit! I am officially endorsing them.
I find so much rang of motion, resistance to strength curb, better form, better mind-muscle connection and my arms look a shit load better since using them for curls and tricep pulldowns.
Get into it and lift if you don't.
@TheStoicCrane I don't see how/why he wouldn't be convicted.
Surely they have codes of conduct, training and all sorts of stuff.
His aim is to detain the guy and immobilize him.
At no point does he show a single moment of safety and concern.
He never once relieves pressure. He never once asks George how he is. There is zero risk consideration.
He has three other guys on him, he could have lifted his knee once in eight minutes.
With three guys, codes of conduct and a fucking camera is full view why would you be so stupid not to lift his knee once?
@Osiris for sure. There is nothing wrong with being a King. A king governs.
But a King is also wise, and knows the lay of the land.
It's an outstanding book.
To be a king, you need awareness of when the boyhood behaviours come in.
Evola was a good pointer to know when the 'fall' is just too far. Sometimes you just have to worry about your own transcendence.
