Re: American Cops behaving Badly (All inclusive thread)

Does this sentence (from today's Yahoo News) make sense to anyone?

'Protesters have defied warnings from authorities and flooded city streets across the country in a show of support to the Aboriginal community following the death of George Floyd in the United States.'

Getting back to the topic, PR have said it all on the horrendous foolishness of the Castle assassination - there's really no more to be said: 'Australian rugby is better off because of Raelene Castle, not without her.

This is f**king disastrous for rugby in Australia. I have read through the comments on here and this is the first one that sums up where we are now.

After conceding that early margin they were able to adjust their defence to shut the Bulls out for the rest of the game - tha...
