#Ferguson - If You Don't Want To Get Hurt, Don't Challenge Me - Cop Writes In Open Letter

Posted in: , ,

By Sunil Dutta

A teenager is fatally shot by a police officer; the police are accused of being bloodthirsty, trigger-happy murderers; riots erupt. This, we are led to believe, is the way of things in America.

It is also a terrible calumny; cops are not murderers. No officer goes out in the field wishing to shoot anyone, armed or unarmed. And while they’re unlikely to defend it quite as loudly during a time of national angst like this one, people who work in law enforcement know they are legally vested with the authority to detain suspects — an authority that must sometimes be enforced. Regardless of what happened with Mike Brown, in the overwhelming majority of cases it is not the cops, but the people they stop, who can prevent detentions from turning into tragedies.

Working the street, I can’t even count how many times I withstood curses, screaming tantrums, aggressive and menacing encroachments on my safety zone, and outright challenges to my authority. In the vast majority of such encounters, I was able to peacefully resolve the situation without using force.

Sri Lankan Girl Slaps Street Tout 6 Times For Insulting Her Outfit

Posted in: ,

This is said to have happened at the Wariyapola bus stand, a popular gathering point in Sri Lanka. The man insulted the young lady for wearing skinny jeans and a blouse with open sleeves and she challenged him. As she got progressively more angry as she spoke, she slapped the guy and kept slapping and hitting him.

Many have said she went overboard in showing her anger, and that calling him out or insulting him back, or at most one slap would have sufficed to teach him a lesson. They point out that the man could have attacked her back, and she's just lucky he took the beat-down like a gentleman.

I say a gentleman wouldn't have insulted a lady in the first place. See the video below and share your thoughts...

Many People in Nigeria Are Manic But Don’t Know It - Charles Novia Writes On Depression

Posted in: , , ,

In his latest blog post, Charles Novia writes on the death of actor Robin Williams, who reportedly committed suicide due to severe depression, noting that mental illness sometimes goes hand in hand with creativity. The filmaker also makes reference to legendary Nigerian reggae musician, Majek Fashek, who he says is currently battling with depression.

Read what he said below:

I was having a conversation a day before Robin Williams’ suicide with my daughter, Nosa, about Majek Fashek and how I managed him and his career for 6 years (2005-2011) and released his hit album ‘Little Patience’ on my label, November Records.

When she saw visuals of how handsome and vibrant Majek used to look and his recent visuals of his emaciated and scraggly look, she was touched and pained. Especially when I told her that Majek is battling with a form of depression and other ‘spiritual’ stuff he has openly confessed to in some media interviews.
