Remember.

his life was totally in danger.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

I get sooooooooo fucked off when I see things like this. I suffer from Depression, some days I struggle to do simple things like get out of the bed and get showered and dressed.

I’ve never once used my Depression to get anything for nothing, not a single day off work because or any shit like that.

How on earth could this prick be given 40k?!?

It’s important that people see this

I dont even know who this is, but the media pulls shit like this often and it should be publicized.

mark duggan was the young man shot to death by the met police here in london, and whose murder, now ruled controversially as ‘legal’, sparked the summer riots a few years back.

Let’s get this straight. I detest all incidents where police over step there mark and shoot someone when they’ve done nothing wrong but in this case they were correct.

I never knew Mark Duggan personally but I know people who did and they said he was a piece of work. He pulled a gun out of his sock and he got shot for it!

I’m not condoning it but it’s a split second decision that ANY of us could’ve been in a position to make. It’s a decision that you’ve then got to live with for the rest of your life. I’d like to say I wouldn’t have fired but if someone held a gun at me, they’re going fucking down!

People then used his death as an excuse to go out and loot, steal, cause general anarchy because they felt they could. I was working when all of this was going on and there were a few times that my work let us leave early because they were concerned about our safety, this is also one of the reasons why I left London.

I felt that if people could do this over someone getting shot what would it be that they used as the next excuse to be assholes? If this had been a proper demonstration etc I’d be more sympathetic but for what people did and then used the shooting to make it ok is UNACCEPTABLE. Even Mark Duggan’s parents said to people to stop so that really says it all.

Robin Williams recorded his dialogue for the Genie at the same time - and across the street from - the filming of Schindler’s List, one of the most depressing movies of all time.

After he was done every day, Robin would go across the street to cheer up the cast of Schindler and make them laugh with recordings of his improvised material from that day.

I just thought you all might want to know that story.
