That's because the search function is not forum specific, like it used to be. It's apparent that some complete and utter fuckwit has trashed the forum. Given that he seems to be in charge these days, someone get Jake onto it.

It was probably just a 2 minute decision by our glorious overlord. Who really has time to read all their posts. Also AND-y tried suicide by mod and I think failed, so maybe Jake is really trying to fix the search function.

Doesn't bother me that DT was banned and it wouldn't have bothered me if he wasn't, but what he said to EDF was out of order and certainly racist.

Just out of curiosity Jake, where did DeadTigers post anything of a racist nature. Was it somewhere on the previous pages because I can't see it o n the same page as your post announcing the ban?
He has beef with Edf. Called him a halfbreed for his first ban. This time round its either 1) Telling EDF that his black half should have a word with his white half, or 2) Implying Edfs posts are house n. type stuff. 3) something that i missed.
Didn't see the halfbreed one but if that is true that's terrible and he deserves a long ban. The house n one I didn't think so but that was in isolation. I have no idea bout number 3.

At times I want to punch EDF in the face and I can understand DT's frustration but nothing EDF says can make DT a racist. That is on him.

Perhaps a tad harsh, but then again I don't share a passport with the fella like all you UKvians do.

He certainly merits a slap in the ear with a wet haddock.

Here is an amusing outcome.
As the Democratic Party moves to the left this year, it is spending time and energy hoping voters don’t notice the consequences of progressive policies. The party famously rolled through its convention across four days without mentioning the violence gripping U.S. cities. Now another hard-to-miss phenomenon has emerged: African-American police chiefs are being forced from their jobs by the party’s protesters.

Los Angeles police officers shot in 'ambush'
1 hour ago
/ LA POLICE
Image caption
LA Police posted footage of the incident
Two Los Angeles police officers are in a critical condition after being shot in what police are calling an ambush.

Video of the incident shows a figure approach the officers' vehicle, before opening fire and running away.

Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva called the act "cowardly". The suspect remains at large.

Almost 40 US police officers were killed in the line of duty in 2020, FBI statistics show eight of them the victims of an ambush.

Protesters shouted anti-police slogans and blocked the entrance to the emergency room where the two officers are being treated, police and witnesses said.

The officers involved have not been named, but have been described as a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man.

"One male deputy and one female deputy were ambushed as they sat in their patrol vehicle. Both sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition. They are both currently undergoing surgery. The suspect is still at large," LA County Sheriffs tweeted.


"This is just a sombre reminder that this is a dangerous job. Actions, words have consequences and our job does not get easier because people don't like law enforcement," Sheriff Villanueva said.

Sharing the footage of the incident, US President Donald Trump, tweeted: "Animals that must be hit hard."

He has made law and order a central part of his bid for re-election.

Fact-checking Trump on crime in Democratic-run cities
Where does Donald Trump stand on key issues?
Responding to the attack, Democratic Californian congressman Adam Schiff said he was praying for the two officers.

"Every day, law enforcement officers put themselves at risk to protect our community," he tweeted. "I hope the perpetrator of this cowardly attack can be quickly brought to justice."

now the hospital the two cops were taken to is being protested:

"To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling "We hope they die" referring to 2 LA Sheriff's ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People's lives are at stake when ambulances can't get through."

I don't blindly support BLM. I agree violence is a bad thing. The looters and rioters should be arrested. There were also right wing agitators too. I believe the BLM lost a lot of credibility due to the rioting. However I do support protests against police brutality vs people of colour.

I also believe the KKK have infiltrated police departments. There are more and more of these bad apples.

Trump supports police brutality because he's racist.

There was one right-wing agitator (Umbrella man) caught on video. But the Right were always going to discredit BLM. Unfortunately they were helped by protestors rioting. It's impossible to control such a large crowd.

On that note, the Bible burning incident was a curious one. There was actually a group handing out free Bibles to the crowd. Surely theh would've known that there's a chance some of those Bibles will be damaged or burnt. The actual Bible burning wasn't a ritual for burning the Bible but people starting a fire and using the Bible as kindling. The video was shared from various Russian link twitter accounts, which created a story of protestors ritually burning Bibles.

I'm not surprised at the spin the Right has put on BLM.

That is an absolutely horrific stat. 7% of protests being violent is extremely high.

30 people are dead from the protests and hundreds of millions of dollars of damage has been done.

Sure, 100 days of rioting in Portland, Chaz ending with two black kids being gunned down, is all the fault of the right.

You lot are a joke

It's a good thing that police chiefs who are not doing their jobs or have covered up crimes by police officers are resigning or retiring (to save their pensions). The fact that a couple of them have been black is neither here nor there. The latest one to take retirement did so about an hour before he was due to answer questions about why he let his department put out a false statement about the death of a man his officers arrested and what his department was doing about it.

It followed the familiar pattern of police lies about the events of an arrest only being discovered months later when they are forced to release video evidence of what actually happened.

You lot are desperate trying to make out the Dems are lurching to the left and are the cause of black police chiefs retiring for no good reason.

To avoid security cameras.

He's the only one caught on video. I'd imagine there would've been more agent provacteurs like him during the riots. It would be naive to think there wasn't. Up until Umbrella Man the protests there was peaceful.

Why'd he have an umbrella anyway?
To travel to the next city on his riot list, Mary Poppins style.
I doubt be was acting alone. There was certainly a concerted effort from the Right to trigger riots.

The other side needs to be shown

Los Angeles police officers shot in 'ambush'

Police described video of the incident which shows a figure approach the officers' car, before opening fire
Two Los Angeles police officers are recovering in hospital after being shot in what police are calling an ambush.
Video of the incident shows a figure approach the officers' vehicle, before opening fire and running away.
Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva called the act "cowardly". The suspect remains at large.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has announced a $100,000 (£78,000) reward for any information leading to the gunman's arrest.
Almost 40 US police officers were killed in the line of duty in 2020, FBI statistics show - eight of them were victims of an ambush.
Protesters shouted anti-police slogans and blocked the entrance to the emergency room where the two officers were being treated, police and witnesses said.
Two people were arrested, including a journalist who police said tried to interfere with the arrest of the other detainee and did not identify herself as a member of the press.
The reporter, Josie Huang, tweeted she had "thoughts and videos" to share, while her employer, NPR, said they were "appalled" by her arrest.

'A sombre reminder'
The officers involved in the shooting have not been named but were described as a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man.
The female officer was shot in the jaw and arms and was in a critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery, authorities said on Sunday. The male officer was hit in the forehead, an arm and a hand and was described as alert, ABC News reported.

"This is just a sombre reminder that this is a dangerous job. Actions, words have consequences and our job does not get easier because people don't like law enforcement," Sheriff Villanueva said.
Both candidates in this year's presidential election weighed in on the shooting.
Sharing the footage of the incident, US President Donald Trump, tweeted: "Animals that must be hit hard."
Fact-checking Trump on crime in Democratic-run cities
Where does Donald Trump stand on key issues?
His Democratic rival, Joe Biden, said he was praying the officers recover.
"This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice," he tweeted. "Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished."

Yeah, all someone would have to do would be turn up and chant TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP and the loonies would kick off.
