Former Italian PM found guilty of paying underage prostitute for sex during 'bunga bunga' parties at his villa, then using his influence to try to cover it up. (June 24)
Bill: I respect what he has to say- and he's right, he has a different experience with police than the average black person, but I'd also like to say he has a different experience than the average white/asian/mexican, whatever person. I'm tired of BLM, if they want support they need to appeal to ALL Americans. Our police force has become abusive and over militarized. Our police kill more per year than the U.K.'s has killed in 60 (do the math, per capita, it's still ridiculous). Why do I have to keep watching videos where a gun is the first option instead of a taser or pepper spray? Why do police lecture people in my city to stay away from certain areas because "they are open air drug markets" and the cops are unwilling to risk their lives to go there to protect you if you happen to wander there? Serve and Protect? In my town the police know where the crooks are, but that's far to dangerous, so they hand out traffic tickets and hide behind billboards instead. How about we just call it harass and fine? All of these celebrities who respect the police, democrat, republican, whatever, have a completely different perspective than the average citizen, black or otherwise.. And I have family who were in the police, but things were different then. I understand there are good cops and bad cops, but the institution itself is failing regardless.
