IPCC is not part of the police.


But where will they be getting their information? From the deceased via seance, or the police?


You know when someone commits a crime and the police needs to find evidence to see who did what to who to prove who did the crime? Yea its kinda like that only the IPCC is ivestigating the police rather than a criminal.

In theory it should work that way. I'm not as optimistic it will, but i do hope you're right.

They nailed a copper who ****d some women up here a while ago. The IPCC is rather good at getting to the bottom of what happened.

Morning, Barakkus,

I was about to rebut on the link I posted, where 600k were stolen from households and only 70k were reported missing or stolen from reputable dealers. Then I realized that was 70k on roughly 10% audited.

In any case, on that same link I wound up on 'Trace the Guns', an interactive map that shows a states gun laws, the amount of crime guns imported and exported through that state and the time to crime stats. Rather interesting, though I wouldn't know entirely what to make of it.




Lots of guns in the hands of criminals actually come from the government

"Fast and Furious" was intended to be a false flag operation against the 2nd Amendment. Their mistake was to make noise about guns being purchased in the US and snuck into Mexico, BEFORE actually facilitating that themselves. The BATFE is caught red-handed on this one. Even the gun stores tried to warn the BATFE and were told to sell the guns anyway.

But that's what was "walked" over the border. Here's a collection of links involving 30000 guns that the US government "facilitated" into the hands of drug cartels. Cartel guns have a tendency to end up BACK in the US too, and the usual blood dance from the media ensues when some politically incorrect gun (all black, detachable magazine, etc) is found at a crime scene.

Now as for the "gun show loophole", here's a case of a known illegal alien with a legal Texas ID buying a gun illegally and the seller ends up in prison while the alien is still in the US.
(this should be a clue as to how closing the so-called loophole will really work: with unintended consequences).


In the end, we have guns because we are freemen bearing arms - and this is older than the Constitution. Real freedom is NOT asking for permission or gaining the approval of others, or even needing an excuse. People ask me why I have a gun, I say, because I have the right to. Anyone thinking otherwise is welcome to turn democracy into a weapon against liberty and vote in disarmament, and thus make welcome the opportunity to carry out the instructions in the preamble of the Declaration of Independence (the one about "throwing off" bad government).

Having watched a bit of footage, and looked at pics from the riots.... Is it some kind of law in the UK that everyone own a black or grey hoodie?

Forget the color of the people thats the one thing I noticed everyone and their uncle is wearing a hoodie.


It's the country of Robin Hood, how can you be a robbing hood without said hood?

With **** cases you've got DNA evidence and a living victim who can identify features of a persons body not normally seen. But in a situation like this all you've got are witnesses, if there even are witnesses aside from police, and they first have to decide to testify against the police, something which could make life difficult for them down the road, and after that it's a matter of them being believed. "Just look at them, they're clearly poor, and black, too! I suggest their biased testimony be stricken from the record, your honour. We can only trust the word of our noble officers who've humbly given their lives to selfless service of the populace, and should not allow them to be defamed like this by common criminals."

Hey I just realized something.

What was going on in Britain that was making big news BEFORE these riots?

I said already that there is always a ready supply of knuckleheads ready to riot for any reason, any time. But why now?

What was making the headlines in Britain before this stuff started?

Here's a thing that happened over 100 years ago
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tottenham_Outrage

Where several (almost entirely) unarmed citizens helped chase down 2 armed robbers.

Handgun ownership without a similar sense of duty wouldn't change the current situation in London much.

More questions:

- what would have happened if anyone, instead of atacking private property, attempted to burn down parliament? Where the police "standing down and observing" there?

- What would the police do to you if you went running up to these "youths" and attempted to unmask them?

There is so much stuff I find deplorable about attitudes that tend to manifest on the American right but I could forgive them almost anything for their genuine attachment to this ethos.

I think you're suggesting agent provocateurs? It's certainly possible, with police being caught red handed doing it before. I personally don't think so in this case, though. Economic instability is nothing new, and it still makes top news next to the riots. If they were planning on distracting people they're a little late, and doing it wrong.

I think TPTB in Britain were completely blindsided by this.

I still feel mankind, as a whole, should suffer some sort of cataclysm (meteors coming crashing into us, somebody shooting nukes, bananaphones being released, etc..) so that it could get a culling.

and I do mean a nasty one, back to 1/10th of what we are now.

It's just the greedy psychopathic corporate bastards who need a culling. Your average person just wants to live a comfortable life among friends and family. The Earth can sustain many more people as long as corporate greed isn't raping and polluting the planet.

I wouldn't doubt that police forces, especially in corrupt cities are capable of really rotten stuff. Like threatening to 'blow peoples brains out' simply for having a concealed permit.

In the battle between rioters and police, I will take the side of the police. However I have a healthy suspicion of them as well, especially in countries like the UK where they are doing their best to regulate every aspect of life. They even have 'KNIFE' control in england. (no knives over a certain length unless you are a chef) for chrissakes.

hey, if you got to be fair, you got to be fair to everybody.

if I died in said cataclysm, so be it. that would mean that I wasn't worthy.

do I wish it for my family and friends? no, but I don't control who lives or who dies.

I think that your view of the United Kingdom is rather strange. Or do you really mean England and just England and not the other countries?

As for the knives being banned; it's not as simple and straightforward as you make it out to be. Is there a need for a youth in a hoodie to be carrying a ten inch knife on the Clapham omnibus but for someone out living in the sticks there may be a damned fine reason to have a knife. In fact, I tend to have a knife in my Barbour at all times.

On a side note, I'm reconsidering owning a Blackberry at the moment:

If they're willing to just disclose any and all text messages that "may be related" and I just happen to be somewhere something like this happens, I don't think I'd appreciate police showing up on my doorstep because I text a friend of mine about a video game and say, "zomg i gotz all teh phat lewtz!"

That's not unique to RIM, the police can request details from any mobile service provider, social networking site and any public phone box records. Depending on how thorough the police want to be they could even be data mining almost every text message or phone calls made in the riot areas and cross referencing location information on where certain phones have been.

If you want to avoid authorities snooping through your stuff you need to dump your phones and PCs altogether.
