I just read about many police officers and servicemen who, when asked if they would go to peoples homes and take the guns from them, to a man/woman they said no, they would refuse ANY order to do so

So the armed services would mutiny? It's even more screwed up than I thought.

You a link to that article Stew? Would be interested to read that.

She said she 100% saw sex. She didn't walk up and specifically ensure and make note of his penis penetrating her vagina.

Was there not a mention of thrusting?

Even if there was? Would that prove penetration?
Beyond reasonable doubt........maybe.

Why would dry humping be less likely?
I don't have any statistics but I'd say if a heterosexual man is naked and a naked lady is in the position that this lady is alleged to have been in then the man is much, much, much more likely to have intercourse with her than to "dry hump" her. Now maybe the jury and the world at large think differently and maybe someone will give evidence of Jackson's love for dry humping. I doubt it though. If dry humping was his thing, he'd probably keep his clothes on, in case he got accused of rape or something.
He could have had a bit too much to drink and despite his best efforts, it was all he could muster.

Cant see that standing up in court....

Liverpool's problem will be the consistency. They could easily ship 2 or 3 away goals to any of the teams at Anfield and end up chasing the tie which is not something that they are suited to..

I see the team are training in Marbella as they have a weekend off after the WBA fiasco in the cup.  Old friend showed up with Dagger appearing at training.  :D

I did not realise he was only 33 still. If he had not been so blighted by injuries he could have been an absolute legend for the last ten years. Classy footballer.

Also rumours circulating that Liverpool have agreed terms with Roma keeper Alisson in advance of a £62m summer move. Sounds a bit too like last summers VVD fiasco for my liking! Can you "tap up" foreign players or does that only apply in premiership? Also, if thats the kind of money being talked about for him, what will Utd get for de Gea if Madrid come calling? £100m plus you would imagine. Failing to service that fax machine could turn out to be Utd's best ever move in the transfer market....

Somebody is lying to me..... ::) ::)

How does anyone know unless it's tried?

Australia decided to have an amnesty on semi automatic weapons and introduce strict background checks on all gun ownership going forward.

They haven't had a mass shooting since and the rates of homicide and suicide have reduced. You will never stop it completely or get all the guns but at least do f**king something!!!

Was not aware of that.

I dont normally pay too much attention to this thread because a) I know very little about the laws and situation in America bar what I see in the media and b) like all things USA on this board it seems to develop into the  into the usual  rants.

However, I honestly fail to see how anyone can defend not banning automatic/semi automatic  weapons. I get the whole issue around the number of  guns in circulation and if you banned them then they would be forced underground etc etc. But, if you make it harder for one nutjob to carry out a Sandy Hook, Vegas, Florida then surely that is a result. Yes if they were determined enough they could probably source guns illegally but I assume this would take time and they probably would not be able to put together the same arsenal and secondly may go for an "easier" option of using a knife/car or even a handgun etc. Horrific yes, but highly unlikely to result in the same number of fatalities.

I'm not sure where I stand on the handgun side of things. Personally I think if you are starting from scratch you ban them but given the Constitution and the sheer numbers in circulation that is never going to happen.

Listening to the radio interview now. Your man is an absolute dose.

George Keenan? has his own pigeon American accent.
What is it with their accents. There was another one has like an Cross between an English/Belfast accent. Hard to listen to

I actually thought it sounded a bit like Nolan's accent

Clearly all fcukwits must have the same accent so

Good news for the NOrthwest ad O'Neills

https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/business/northern-ireland/oneills-to-create-175-jobs-with-expansion-of-its-strabane-manufacturing-headquarters-36604634.html

Sportswear giant O'Neills is creating 175 jobs as part of a major expansion at its Co Tyrone base.
Planning approval granted by Derry City and Strabane District Council makes way for a new storage and distribution facility and factory shop complex at Dublin Road in Strabane to aid with the company's developing online business.O'Neills, which is best known for its GAA kit, has established sales offices in Dublin, London and Belfast, while international  sales offices have been opened in the US, France and Australia. The new positions, to be created over a three-year period, are expected to generate an additional £26.7m in sales, and will also help safeguard the present workforce.

Now celebrating its centenary year, O'Neills Sports already employs nearly 600 people in Strabane, in addition to 100 who work at its Dublin site.

While the company started out manufacturing solely GAA jerseys, it has seen considerable development, particularly over the past 40 years, and is now the largest sportswear manufacturing company in Ireland.

DUP getting hammered in the English press

Gregory the bollox was on Radio Ulster earlier.  He is a hateful hoor of a man but he generally comes across as pretty articulate despite the bile he is normal spouting. HOwever, I thought he definitely seemed more defensive and rattled today.

That might be the Mane issue sorted. Some performance away from home in fairness.
As strange as it sounds, I actually thought mane wasn't great last night, especially in the first half!
The third goal was a great finish though and he seemed to grow in confidence as the game went on. Hopefully thats him back in a bit of form again.

I agree with that. I would argue that he took the wrong option for his third goal as TAA was steaming up alongside. Obviously at 4-0 and on a hattrick its not an issue but I still remember the Everton game!

As for describing Firminio as technically limited? No idea how anyone could come to that conclusion. Hes probably more technically gifted than Salah, and his vision is unreal.

If these fŻckers canít be convicted with this mountain of circumstancial, medical evidence and actual proof of the defendants lying to the police then there is something serious broken with this system.

Don't think.anyone is suggesting a 3 some didn't take place.  Have seen no evidence as yet to suggest it wasn't consensual?

and equally no evidence to suggest it was

The difficulty the prosecution will have is the "Beyond reasonable doubt" proviso

Iíve watched a bucketload of NFL this year, where decisions cannot be made easily within the rules of the game,  and now this in the rugby.

The VARs in these sports need a simple doctrine from above: in all decisions, when itís a coin toss, the favour will always go with the attacking / defending team; whichever way the doctrine is stated. VARs then cite that as their final decision when one cannot clearly be made.

Thatís pure nonsense. The rules should be clear and easily understood and favour neither team.In American football one of the nonsenses they have is making the refs call it in real time and that call being treated with a certain reverence (clear evidence that it should be overturned) when it really shouldnít.

The TMO whiffed on this one. It happens rarely enough in rugby that there is nothing to see here, let alone do.

The rules are clear generally. The problem is that certain decisions are so borderline that even with VAR its impossible to be 100% clear. If you dont see enough evidence to overturn in those situations why not go with the onfield officials original call. In certain situations they may have a better idea of what happened than VAR. Whats the alternative,balance of probability? Then it becomes really subjective.

Any idea what sort of running costs are involved, say for the 200 lux version?

Clyne named in the champions league squad. Good to see him back, as well as Gomez and TAA have played at times.

Pity about Sturridge, hoped he would score a few goals and make the England WC squad to bump up his transfer value. Must be soul destroying for him. (Although I'm sure the ££s help ease the pain!)
