The grisly footage, released in four parts, indicates an ambulance did not arrive for more than 20mins after the vicious beating. This article contains description of physical violence
This is all so wrong and my heart goes out to the family of Tyre Nichols and all the other families of American Police brutality, whatever their racial origins, but especially so the so called, Minority Ethnic origins, which are not that so minor for they are a very sizeable part of the American population and being so should be entitled to all the Human Rights allowed in America.
But, even though many Americans don’t believe so, the Human Rights in America are not as extensive as they should be, in a So Call Democracy as Very Right wing politics and right wing religions are abusing their assumed power in all matters.
Americans need to extend their horizons and see for themselves the extent of Freedoms in other so called democratic countries.
Yes, there will always be some legislative restrictions, but not to the same degree as in America and these degrees change from State to State.
It would appear that some American Police forces have not progressed much, if at all and some are now even worse that in the days of the Wild West. For it is now the 21st century and not the 18th when America was formed, but others were there before with the Indians, now referred to as Native Americans. Many of whom were assassinated by the incoming invaders, starting with the Pilgrim Fathers and many others afterwards.
Being Christians, or so we are told, but having far right views, hence their decision to leave England and find pastures new, but without any apparent thoughts about anyone already there.
Were they really bringing Christian principles to America and then in the southern areas of North America and the West Indies to allow slaves to be brought over from Africa. In doing so not extending these Christian principles to the slaves as they believed them to be not worth any vestiges of Christian thoughts. Some of which, in many ways, still exists today in how so termed minorities are treated in America, with many Americans Caucasians wishing that the return to the 18th century should be done today. perhaps, in some extent this is why the American police are how they are today, even those of non-Caucasian origins.
Every country still has a lot to learn, but some much more than others, for we are all humans and really we should all be able to live together and not let any differences get in the way, being it gender, race, religion, ethnicity, disability and many others.
Let’s all live in peace and show each other the respect there should always have been and do away with all forms of discrimination and acknowledge the Human Rights of others.
