Freedom Of Expression

Needling authority

The events of yesterday reminded me of the Kursk submarine tragedy;

The Russian authorities have been filmed apparently using a sedative to silence a particularly vocal critic among angry relatives of the Kursk sailors.

In Russia they use sedatives to silence critics, in America they use tasers. No, don’t get up America, it’s only a commercial.

Images of the incident have been broadcast and published throughout the world. They show the young blonde woman – the mother of one of the sailors who died horribly in the Kursk submarine – screaming her angry comments at Ilya Klebanov, the deputy prime minister in charge of investigating the disaster. An officer tries, without success, to calm the woman, before a nurse slides into the picture, clearly holding a hypodermic syringe. Moments later, the blond woman slumps to the ground, before being helped to a chair.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are entering a new phase. Exciting isn’t it?


Freedom Of Speech

It doesn’t matter the guy was an obnoxious dick, that he probably barged in and tried to take over, that he gave a running commentary on his experience in a typically loud American manner, that he (rightly or wrongly) resisted arrest (if you can call what he did resisting arrest); there is no possible justification for his treatment, especially when you see that the taser was administered while he was pinned to the ground by 4 or 5 officers of the law (i.e. when he was in no position to offer any resistance, and not capable of injuring anyone).

Most disturbingly, if you look behind the guy being assaulted, to the right of the picture, you can see a suited gentleman (possibly a spook) signaling (to other cops?) to cut the proceedings, synchronized to the mention of Skull and Bones.

From the comments;

The only crime being tragedy here was the failure to kick him after the tazer. Oh, and for those of you from Europe with something bad to say about the US , I think your time would be better spent trying to control your “ethnic gangs” that run free and are on the brink of taking you over. EuAriba is right. Mohammed likely to top British boys’ names list by year-end, yeah, STFU.

Freedom of speech, y’all!
