Quelqu'un peut m'expliquer, SVP?

Quelqu'un pourrait-il me donner la signification de ce tweet de Bowman, SVP? J'avoue que je saisis mal quel pays il dit qu'il ne quittera plus.

"It's open season back home sheesh. God Bless America I think. If I can get a job up here I'm never going back."


He's commenting that things are bad back home Brooklyn NY. He's hoping to find a job in Montreal after his playing days.

Throw in the political climate too.

I know a few Americans who don't want to vote for EITHER presumptive nominee; and regardless of who gets elected it unless the President's party controls both the Senate and the House it is four years of how can we block each other from doing anything. And if the President's party does control both, in the modern political climate THAT is scary as both parties are controlled by emotion and dogma, not logic and analysis.

Bowman was reacting to another one of these yesterday:

He feels more comfortable here, where the cops don`t act ridiculous, just look ridiculous in their camo pants.

Merci! Je comprends mieux maintenant. :thup:

Two Black men killed by police in as many days for nothing. Welcome to the military dictatorship that is the USA. :thdn: :thdn:

C'est un indice probant de racisme systémique. Il y en a ici aussi.

Triste à pleurer! :frowning: :x

D'autres orphelins sans raison, d'autres veuves démolies, d'autres familles en peine pour rien. RIEN!

Je me demande si nous verrions autant de ces tragédies s'il y avait un bon contrôle des armes à feu aux USA? Je veux dire que c'est plus difficile de craindre que quelqu'un sorte une arme si elles ne circulent pas plus librement que la bière. Mais en même temps, ce sont des situations qui ne devraient pas arriver. Le nombre de ces bavures montre qu'il ne s'agit pas de bavures.

Enfin, c'est un forum de football.

To keep it football related, most will remember we have had racial profiling in Montreal involving the Alouettes:

That's a topic in itself

It's not that bad! :lol:


I have no problem with it...in fact I support them

Sometimes pertinent facts are preferable to claiming that the shooting in Minnesota was unjustified. When officer Jeronimo Yanez stopped Philando Castile and girlfriend Diamond Reynolds, it was because Castile matched the description of an armed robbery suspect. When the officer saw the gun on Castile's lap, he ordered the passengers to keep their hands “up, visible and don’t move them?. When Castile moved he got shot.

The after-the-fact streaming of the shooting including the blood and hearing Reynold's version of the incident, caused the social media to go nuts. But stayed tuned because the officer's dashboard camera recorded the entire incident and only the police have seen it.

Very good synopsis timothy.I'm not sure if the officer was truly justified but the media blew it up before anyone knew for sure. It's a war on cops here and it's just getting worse

85 Fatal shootings a month (not counting injured) by law enforcement A MONTH, there certainly is a problem. Democrats declaring war on them is not going to fix the problem. US is a huge mess and neither the crook or the realtor is going to fix it. IMO that country is at a tipping point.

But Blacks are shooting backs every night in south side Chicago, Detroit, Compton. Why aren't Black Lives Matters shouting about that and demanding that police do something?
When you look at the stats, MORE white and Hispanics were shot by police.
85 a month for all 50 major cities and that would include responding to armed robbery, stand offs etc is that really out of control for a population of 300 million?
When you consider the 300 million population is it really out of control that white police officers are shooting blacks? or is the press and the availability of video really blowing this out of proportion.

Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers.
Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops. This is according to FBI data, which also found that 40 percent of cop killers are black. According to MacDonald, the police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person
Despite the facts, the anti-police rhetoric of Black Lives Matter and their leftist sympathizers have resulted in what MacDonald calls the "Ferguson Effect," as murders have spiked by 17 percent among the 50 biggest cities in the U.S. as a result of cops being more reluctant to police neighborhoods out of fear of being labeled as racists. Additionally, there have been over twice as many cops victimized by fatal shootings in the first three months of 2016.

It's all about political agenda. The fact is non of these groups give a crap about who's being shot because if they did they would spend more time trying to fix it. All they want is media attention and money.

It's the blatant abuse of force -deadly force - that makes these incidents stand out. This then begs the question, was the abuse racially motivated or not? I don't have the answer, but this behaviour is unacceptable to many ordinary citizens, white and black alike. Law enforcement agencies need to improve public service, even it this simply means weeding out the small percentage of 'problem officers'.

In London, England, bobbies don't even carry firearms. I look forward to the day when Montreal police officers follow their lead: that will be true service.

What also makes them stand out is that, unlike the various thugs and criminals (black, white, hispanic or anything else) that kill people for whatever reason, police are supposed to PROTECT protect people.

My numbers have nothing to do with race. I have no idea the racial breakdown of the 84.3 killed every month. To me all lives matter. To put it in perspective. To have the same death rate in Canada. LEO’s would have to kill roughly 10 people a month.
