Comedy Central’s Jim Jefferies explored life with police officers in the United Kingdom so he could watch their arrest tactics, which almost never involve a firearm or result in a fatal shooting, unlike policing in the U.S., and the important role gun laws have played.

“The Jim Jefferies Show” skit opened with the late-night comedian talking about a Georgia Tech student who wielded a pocketknife and was shot and killed by police.

“On social media, people once again said ‘did the cops really have to shoot, where was the Taser? There must be a better way,'” Jefferies said. “Maybe there isn’t.”

Jefferies then showed a video of his time with Birmingham Police in the U.K., a location dubbed “one of the most murderous places in the country.”

This is so true, however, I believe the main religion may go on for ever, depending how long ever is, for with the current climate of one upmanship in many areas of the World being, West, East, Middle East, Far East and any others the future as we know it may not last as long as we hope for. In that the relentless quest for power by a good few of the World’s leaders and some aspiring leaders could well mean that the future could be short lived. Then what will their quest for power bring them and their communities, but do they really care as the driven quest for their own power extinguishes all others.

Unfortunately all you state has little chance of happening, now or the long-term future, unless the populace achieve what is currently seeming impossible.

The last point ‘To prevent future atrocities you have to treat the cause of the disease not merely the symptoms!’ is particularly relevant, but all are as well, but if you could achieve all these others, they will not be able to continue until you concentrate on the disease as well as the symptoms.

Take radicalisation, why are the people who are radicalised open to this action, unfortunately there will not be a common theme.

They could not have the will to resist.

They could have problems which are leaving down and open to be corrupted

There will be others, but all need to be identified and then appropriate action to minimise these areas and ideally create situations where they cannot manifest.

Take the UK, people are marginalised either into ethnic communities and do not forget that a white community is just as good or bad as any other community. Just because it may be the majority, in not a reason to discount it. We need to accept that in many ways we are all equal, however, some are more equal than others and there could be a root of the problem. Again the area of power is brought to the fore for power comes in many guises wealth is one, position is another, and in many respects the creation of some communities could be another, perhaps the list could be endless.

Religion and politics are two main causes, but they are not there alone, for if they were not there others would be created.

It could be within the makeup of the Human Race to which we all belong. If we were all created in Gods own image, then there is then no hope, so could the evolution theory have a better way forward, as this would mean that change will come, but not in our lifetime, that is if there is to be another lifetime.

So we have to ask is there really time for change to come forth.

A very complicated subject, but is certainly there for scrutiny and research. But then could the scrutiny and research be slanted with the human frailties.

This could go on and on and then come full circle, Oh, what a complicated Society or Societies we are in.

Terrorism has become the scourge of our age.

Too many people have hearts full of hatred and arrogant righteousness.

Too many are indoctrinated into stupid beliefs.

Too many are exploited and manipulated into hatred, self-sacrifice and intolerance.

It is too easy to manufacture bombs and get hold of weapons.

Too many people seek power through perverse religion and politics.

There is far too much ignorance and superstition.

The world is far to unequal.

There are too many people, too little work and so little hope.

Too many live in overcrowded poverty and hopelessness.

The terrorists want to divide, spread fear and destabilise so that they can sneak into the vacuum and inflict their religious or political aims.

The men behind it are never killing themselves.

It is all about power, not beliefs or doctrine – power. The people who organise, radicalise and induce the hatred and barbarity want to be…

Just days after the announcement that Munroe Bergdorf had been hired as L’Oréal’s first openly transgender model, she was fired by the cosmetics company. Her sacking came after a post she made on Facebook, described in the Daily Mail last Friday as ‘an extraordinary rant declaring all white people racist.’

The story, which went viral, and has divided public opinion hugely.

Munroe, a black transgender model and DJ, made the post in response to violence from white supremacists in Charlottesville.

Controlling what women wear won’t curtail terrorism.

Last Thursday I was a tourist strolling down Barcelona’s famous Las Ramblas. I decided that rather than sit down in one of the many crowded street cafés, I would buy my nine-year-old son Qais, whom I had left behind in Glasgow, his Barcelona FC kit.

I walked on. Seconds later I heard a crashing noise and hundred of screams. As I turned I saw an avalanche of people running with terror. Instinctively I ran, but seconds later stopped to learn that a van metres away from where I had been had mowed down the crowd and murdered innocents.

A campaign of hate and lies, led by Tommy Robinson

I let my family and friends know via social media that I was safe. In the aftermath I spoke to the media of the sea of humanity that walked the length of Las Ramblas, where one could see every race, creed and colour represented. We now know there were in fact 34 countries from which the victims came.

I pointed out that my being a Muslim gave me no immunity from bombs, bullets or a van. But what followed was a barrage of hate from the far right – Trump supporters as well as those of the EDL.
