Lessons From Cuban Police | The Smirking Chimp

Contrary to the image of brutal and repressive communists, police in Cuba offer an instructive example for activists in the United States. Police live in the cities they patrol. They generally treat citizens with respect. As I documented in my book Dateline Havana, police beatings of criminals are rare and police murders are nonexistent. Cuba has one of the lowest crime rates in Latin America.

Uppercut: call for violence at Parliamentary Inquiry into accountants

Amid the squabbling over audit standards and the fineries of interpretation, it is always open to government to simply insist all companies over a certain size report fully and uniformly. This might do the Big Four out of some business but it would bring the tax dollars in. After all, if business people wish to enjoy the protection of the corporate veil, with that should come accountability and transparency. Otherwise, just don’t incorporate.

Inside Australia’s terror threats.

What never seems mentioned is the research that indicates that more mass or multiple killings have occurred by those not deemed terrorist. terrorism is it seems is a category devoted to murders by Muslims whether organized or not. Further research shows the murders are increasingly lone wolf, committed by people on drugs and with poor histories of mental health factors that in fact have been known.

The categorizing of terrorism in a way that seems to be exclusively Muslim merely raises the fact that in a post racist world where differences aren’t division.

One world-weary father whose son was caught in the middle of such an event where police used capsicum spray to disperse the crowds suggested it was a graphic illustration of how the world had changed: ‘‘I grew up listening to Sergeant Pepper’s – he grew up being pepper-sprayed by a sergeant.’’

Diante Yarber: Police kill black father with barrage of bullets in Walmart parking lot | US news | The Guardian

Diante Yarber was driving his cousin and friends to a local Walmart when he was shot and killed by police on 5 April.

The shooting happened weeks after police in northern California killed Stephon Clark, an unarmed father who was standing in his family’s back yard.
