A disturbing, although long existing trick, tactic, or whatever title you may wish to call it, is the use of the phrase ‘stop resisting’ by police, to, on the one hand ensure that they at least ‘warned’ the suspect that he/she should not resist the officer(s) who are in the process of making an arrest, or detaining them, or on the other, to ensure that if the suspect turns out to be innocent, then at least the police can extort money and give the person a criminal record, which will subsequently make it easier for the person to be arrested in the future(anyone who has a previous conviction will be on their database, regardless of the nature of the offence).
Crazy little thing called religion!!!
I wrote a blog on religion a few years ago. In this blog I pointed out my personal views regarding this controversial and often thought provoking topic.
As a member of a religious family(mainly on the female side. When I was a kid, it was very noticeable that religion afflicted the female part of the Caribbean society far more than the male side) church was an integral part of my childhood.

Where else , but in America of course!! The latest ‘execution’ of a probably innocent man. I say probably, because all of the facts are not in yet.
The background to this story is as follows: A man jogging in a neighbourhood near his home is followed by 2 men in a truck. They believe he has been involved in robberies in the same neighbourhood.
The Coronavirus is here. With us every day. All around us. Restricting our lives. Ruining livelihoods, destroying businesses. Uprooting the financial world, and much more. But is it the deadliest plague of modern history, as is being claimed in many quarters?
Throughout history, men have been the pursuers, the charmers, the chasers of women. Whole industries have made countless billions over centuries due to this basic fact. So now we have world where men are now on their guard when it comes to physical, and visual contact, and verbal interaction, with the opposite sex.
I came across this interesting article in the wake of the Nice attack.
An intriguing title you might ask. And you would be right. What is the meaning behind it? All will become clear shortly.
There is an increasing connection between religion and football?
Well. In this world of mass sporting investment and expansion worldwide, certain things have crept in which are altering the face of certain sports.
What is female rape? From what I gather it is the deliberate act of a woman forcing herself upon a man against his wishes. (‘No means no’ he said).
Most countries around the world are now ‘blessed’ or ‘plagued’, depending on your opinion, with ‘The shopping Mall’ These are often the social meeting place and besides the shopping, eating, and window shopping, which goes on in abundance, there is another ‘blight’ on the landscape.
