So back to your claim about the New York Times not covering the story

When I google it and it doesn’t  come up (petrol bomber bail attorney ny times)

But here’s  what I said “but so far they don’t seem to have reported it“

Damn immigrants, you need to learn to speak American whitey. Petrol bomb = molotov cocktail

Just in case the police come along with an armoured car.

What on earth is the justification for anyone having that?!?

The same lot are nowhere to be seen right when the scenario envisaged by the founding fathers that resulted in the 2nd amendment is here. A government oppressing its people.

At which point you wonder, whats the point of the 2nd amendment?

What kind of normal person would want to buy something like that?

In what normal setting would one even be able to buy something like that?

It could be a prop - his mate with him had a wooden replica of a 50 caliber machine gun

Yeah here are the patriots in question, included one chap who is evidently on his way to a massive plumbing project and is asking a black family for directions.

Just watched a video of looters in a what looked like a Nike store, dirty scumbags

Why are you concerned about people lifting a few pairs of shoes that cost $5 to get made in China? I'd rather it didn't happen but not high on my list of priorities compared to police killing people.

So are you not concerned or agreeing with looters?

And what have looters got to do with peaceful protesters? I seen loads of white people heading into the shop multiple times, scumbags.

If you see the differentiation fair enough, I might have picked you up wrong. For too many the looting is used as a brush to tar all protesters.

Stop police murdering people and then have a president who isn't encouraging police brutality as a response to police murder, once we get that sorted if there is still looting we can address it.

Leo has finally recommended the wearing of face coverings on busy public transport and in busy enclosed areas such as shops. Out of interest how many on here have worn face coverings while in busy shops?

I haven't and I wont be either. Expert advice up to last week said masks are not advised and now suddenly they are. It's to do with giving people a warm fuzzy sense of security. I'll be visiting shops at quiet times with no mask as that is the safest way to proceed.

That advice in most countries was because people didn't have any masks or none were available. I'm definitely wearing one in a shop. It not just about you, the people who work there have exposure from multiple people every day. Even with a home made mask, if it only 20% effective that's a lot better than nothing.

Bearbrook (start of family DNA), Dirty John, Man in the Window (Golden State killer) , Murder book, Running from Cops (about the making of the show Cops) all US true crime. "Root of Evil" crazy show about a crazy family possibly linked to Black Dahlia case.

"The Dark North" is great show about mafia in Montreal - someone mentioned "Crimetown" it's a bit similar to that, but with insane French Canadian bikers.

BBC show 'Shreds' really good on police corruption, false convictions etc set in Wales. Really good.

A lot of the podcasts I listen to have already been mentioned on the thread, but I find the following good:

- That Peter Crouch podcast: He seems like a funny down to earth guy and the other 2 aren't afraid to pull him up on things that he takes for granted
- Quickly Kevin, will he score: Excellent 90s football podcast with comedian Josh Widdicombe.
- Irish History podcast with Fin Dwyer
- The 2 Johnnies podcast: This may be old news, but I just found out about these lads recently (I live in Australia) and enjoying their podcast
- The David McWilliams podcast: Find his stuff intriguing. He talks about wide ranges of topics and links it back to economics. Don't need to know anything about economics to enjoy
- Casefile: A good true crime podcast. Produced in Australia, so has an Aussie bias to the crimes they cover, but have done a lot of the bigger worldwide stories like the moors murders etc. If you want to know all the details about Ivan Milat (backpacker murders) or Daniel Morcombe (13 year old that disappeared - how they caught the killer is too unbelievable even for a movie)
- GAA hour with Colm Parkinson: I wasn't a Woolly fan before I started listening, but this is an essential GAA resource. Detailed reviews of games. Any bias are usually stated so you can take it into account. And generally neither the bland 'don't want to offend anyone' type analysis nor the personal attacks (though Parkinson does sometimes use the podcast to further his spats with the likes of Brolly, Poacher etc)
- Mayo News Podcast: For all things one-sided Mayo GAA. Particularly helpful during club season, FBD and league
- Surprisingly good, though not as good imo since they lost Maurice Brosnan
- Off the ball, Second captains etc
- various AFL podcasts

"Daniel Morcombe"

Just listened to that one, kind of got the jist of how it was gonna get solved from this case "Atif Rafay, along with friend Sebastian Burn" - similar technique, was on a series on Netflix (US)

Coldrick is beyond facrical at this point. Some of the decisions of lack of were a disgrace.

You could maybe understand 1 or 2 but there had to at least a dozen and it was the timing of some of them were obviously there to kill Tyrone momentum.
In rugby Cian O'Sullivan would be facing a ban for his tackle on McGerary but what does he give.... a throw up ... while Tyrone were in the ascendansy. 
Richie Donnelly gets his fingers taken of him while going down for a pick up and then gathers a bouncing ball only to be blown up for an off the ground right in front of the Tyrone posts...

This is all only the half of it of course but these tow in

How is allowed to referee intercounty games is beyond me, besides his actual abyssmal refereeing he is constantly behind the play and struggling for fitness

Should be brought out of the town in a car boot

Yeah just got around to watching it again there, those were key. He wasn't calling much, but the soft ones that were going went Dublin's way earlier, then when it got intense he swallowed the whistle.
Still Mickey could have moved the bench a wee bit earlier and misses and some decision making cost us more than Coldrick.

Kelly and O'Donoghue both tried to have the jury discharged late in the trial.  For several grand a day they're not very good at reading juries, are they? :o

Yeah Kelly apparently 'on instruction' so neither they nor the lads were feeling very confident by the looks of it.

But this census is different because it will be the first census taken where some of the states with the largest populations are openly defying federel immigration policy. 

Have these states seen an increase in the number of illegal residentsas a result of the sanctuary status?

If they have, that dilutes the vote of every legal resident in the country-can you not understand why that would be a legitimate issue for some people on the right to be concerned about?

BTW-The citizenship question was on the census up until the 1950s.

Lots of shit happened through the 50s.

What does that Pew data show for proportions of illegals? Are blue states gaining lots of Congress people at the expense of red states?

I dont know, but they very likely could!

I think the red states would still have plenty of illegal people working there. If somebody crosses into Texas I doubt they're on the next bus to San Fran cos it is a sanctuary city.

If nationalists want to play for NI good luck to them but many who consider themselves Irish first and foremost should be free to choose the Republic.

At what stage do they consider themselves Irish first and foremost.

Imagine a 21 year old doesn't feel that strongly while playing League of Ireland and plays for Northern Ireland U-21s but once gets signed for a premier league club comes to the attention of FAI?

How did his real nationality and allegiance allow him play for Northern Ireland in case the Republic don't come calling?

Michael O'Neill well within his rights to ask that Republic don't tap up anyone who had gone to that far with the other crowd.


Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forgave the thief on the cross, surely we can forgive a U-21 game or two?

I'll repost this as I would be interested to hear what those who have already decided that Jackson is guilty think......

From what I've read it sounds like nothing was said when the girl came back to Jackson's room until the 3rd fella came in and she got up and said "how many times does a girl have to say no?". The girl said she went numb and was apparently frozen with fear which is understandable if her version is true but is it possible that Jackson could have interpreted it as consensual if he began kissing her and she didn't try to stop him or seem to him to be objecting in any way?

The evidence of the girl who walked into the room should be vital if she's a reliable witness, in determining whether the girl seemed to be a willing participant or not?

Every question you ask is victim blaming to some but I think it's logical and reasonable to ask why she could say no when there were 3 men there but was too scared to say no when it was just Jackson. She said no the first time she was in the room but not the second(unless she did and it wasn't reported). Why did she feel too scared to do so - was he physically aggressive to her at that stage? These are questions I'd like to hear answered before Id make up my mind if I was a juror. Maybe they were answered but not reported.

BUT as I said in another post, Jackson and the girl had consentually kissed in the bedroom, Paddy went to take it further and was rebuked by the girl who then went downstairs. She put on her shoes, about to leave, but realising she's left her bag in the bedroom went up to get it with Jackson following her and forcing herself upon her.

This is obviously her version of events, but Paddy may be caught out if the first part is true and she did knock him back and leave the room. What made Paddy think she'd changed her mind????

On the other hand Jackson takes no for an answer the first time and she leaves the room - so he could argue if he was intent on rape or not taking no for an answer why would he not have done it the first time?

Why wait 2 days before going to police and then forget someone (a woman) came into the room when it was all happening? She’d have been the first person you’d have in your prosecution team, her evidence and those others at the house should nail them

Never mind the QC, the QC is doing a job, a fairly scummy job but it’s the life he chose.

This is what you posted. This was your opinion. You think that’s decent?

I clarified my post, that’s what came from the news, from what the QC said, hopefully you won’t need a scummy QC in the future!

I read that as your own opinion as well. There were no quote marks or any reference to a QC in the post.

As apparently I have to do in Dublin, according to you. But as I said again and again, it's not about numbers, it's about how and why you used them, and why you chose to inject race into this discussion. Something you did and still refuse to answer for.
My country, right or wrong, eh whitey?

Stats prove that a large percentage of murders occur in very specific areas. Low or no murders occur in many other parts of the country

Stats prove that many of those killed have rap sheets as long as your violent career criminals....just like your buddies the Hutchs and the Kinahans

So im sure the murder and gun death stats for law abiding people who live ourside of high crime areas is significantly lower than some of the nonsense being posted on here

The people in those areas don't matter. Whether you realise it or not, that's what you are saying.

No...statistics tend be mainpulated by people who have an agenda.  I am pointing out that National crime and gun statistics dont paint a complete picture.

It started off with me responding to someone implying that the average American was armed to the teeth......In my state Massachusetts 85% of people dont even own a gun, so the average for the entire country is absolutely meaningless for the 6.8 million people who live here.

Inner city gang violence, drugs etc, career criminals.... compared to other wealthy countries take all that out and there's still a major problem so not sure why you are trying to deflect the conversation so much.

I can kind of understand what Whitey is trying to say here (i think)
Its like saying Ireland has a problem with gang violence and giving the statistics for gangland killings.
When in truth, Dublin has a problem with gang violence , those statistics have little bearing on the lives of someone who lives in rural monaghan for example.

That said, that doesn't mean we should do anything about reducing gang violence in dublin.

Yeah and it's not like the Irish Government are making it easier for them by letting the gang members buy guns and ammo in the local Superquinn!!

The gangsters are starting early...
