    The death of Tyre Nichols

    Trouble is you do not know that they are psychopaths until they do something. Then it is to late. It is extraordinary how many people think that somehow such people have a look in the eyes or tone in their voice that gives then away but that is not true. I was the last phone tech at the...

    How We Got Exspensive College Tuition And Massive Student Debt

    This an issue that always annoyed me greatly when doing my degree in the early 90s in Aust. A newer edition of a text book would be released with the only differences seems to be the chapters are re-ordered and a new preface. Yet it is required and a high price. There was nothing wrong with the...

    National Debt And Stuff

    State governments in Australia are notorious for penny pinching. So foolish. They will spend 12 years over a 15 year peiod widening a freeway whereas if they had widened it at the start it would have been cheaper in the long term. It not just the money, it is the waiting in tarffic jams...

    The death of Tyre Nichols

    Between 1990-1997, 75 people were shot in confrontations with Victorian police. Forty-one were shot by police officers and 33 died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds. https://www.aic.gov.au/sites/default/files/2020-05/tandi089.pdf As you note very quickly Victorians considered this to be the new...

    How should west respond to potential (likely) Russian invasion of Ukraine?

    As long we we remember both were occupied by their victors for a time and a new order imposed upon them. Just defeating an enemy without changing the order within the beaten enemy will not lead to long term security.

    The death of Tyre Nichols

    It is truly sad state of affairs when skin colour is the determining factor in a meeting of police and civvies.

    The death of Tyre Nichols

    Not concerned about Australia being mentioned. I am not that precious that I cannot see that we too have problems. Regarding arming of police - whilst not giving police guns would certainly reduce the possibility of civvies being shot it would not have saved Tyre Nichols. Yes the demographics...

    The death of Tyre Nichols

    Yes I live in Victoria, Australia. I am not blind to our problems but in Australia 99.9999....% of motorists pulled over by police do not have to wonder if they will survive. In some parts of the US that figure seems to plummet greatly. And yes of course the media in Aust. tend to show...

    The death of Tyre Nichols

    (Suprised that no-one has started a thread yet it seems) So yet another death from a police beating in the USA. Why do you people hate each other so much? I cannot understand why the police stopping a car should result in a death? From what we hear/see in Australia it would seem that police...

    Sacrifice for the good of the group

    I remember the story of Capt. Oates on Scott's Antarctic Expedition (1910), who knowing he was dying, left the tent to gives the others more food and water. The soldier who throws himself on a grenade to protect his comrades.
