Fact also that the public don't trust the government!

 

Who do you trust more the Police or the government?

I don't trust anyone in a position of power. Power corrupts. You just have to look at Nick Clegg to see that.

I'd never trust anyone who spends her life cutting & pasting from the internet irrelevant rubbish

Me too, Millsy.  Maybe it's her new favourite film.

I might follow suit and change my name.  Could result in some interesting forum names.

Maybe it's how long she's been married?

Then it's her husband I feel sorry for.

No, not to be trusted, but having said that I'm glad they are that way as I am law-abiding. I would trust even the Police before Lawyers though

I don't trust any Governement not just the current one, and I won't voice my opinion on Hillsborough as I tend to remember why the grounds were fenced in, the number of people killed in Heysel and the English team involved in that one, and the fact there were no British police there.

17/01/2014 at 10:49

Heysel was as a result of Italian fans taunting fenced in English fans, they took Liverpool supporters to the fence where they beat them up in front of the caged in fans. The Liverpool supporters removed the fences and the rest is history. Not a case of British Police being absent.

Yeah, they shot that poor kid in Tottenham. Poor lad was holding a gun a few minutes before he was shot. Lets let off some white doves for the death of an innocent boy.

 

17/01/2014 at 11:28

Can't say I'd ever really want our police to routinely shoot people, but if you play with guns eventually they will kill you

17/01/2014 at 12:36

It does seem a bit odd to see his mum kissing a white dove on the front of newspapers, as if he her poor boy was gunned down in his pushchair licking an ice cream. 

17/01/2014 at 13:11

I was being sarcastic about the British police force - as at Heysel no one could blame the police - it was the actions of the fans -

Karen, you're not seriously likening yourself to Solomon Northup are you?  How *do* you fit your ego through the door!

Heysel and Hillsborough were both the result of poor crowd control.

The crux of the Hillsborough inquiry, however, is that some of the injured could have been saved but weren't and that various agencies colluded in covering that up.

Football is safer now because of both, that's something to be thankful for.

Oh and BTW I certainly don't trust anybody who says, "fact" when something is a matter of opinion.

17/01/2014 at 13:36

I trust the police no more and no less than the general public, in an honesty-vs-corruption-ratio-type-of-judgment kind of way...  thing.

And I agree that if you play with guns you're likely to get shot, so I've no sympathy.

And (serious question) why did you change your forum name to 12 years a slave?
