Today Strange Happenings in the World.

Updated on June 13, 2020

USA President Ronald Reagan said

President Ronal Reagan knew that what is happening today in America could happen. So, when we look at what is happening, before we decide who is right and who is wrong, we should reflect on what President Ronald Reagan said.

They say black lives matter, and riot and rob

Today in America and other parts of the world, the black people say, BLACK LIVES MATTER, as if other people count for nothing and can be killed, when all lives must have the same value. So, I believe that what is happening is out of control.

Talking about today strange happenings

Welcome to our article (103) today strange happenings in the world

Today the 10th of June 2020, I am starting to write this article like a personal diary about what has interested me most lately. Anyhow, the things that are happening in the world today are strange and do not make sense to me anymore. Black people riot and protest everywhere, their supporter seem to be brainwashed, they protest in favour of the black community and against the police, as if the police are to blame for what has happened. When the police work is to keep law and order, and when they do something it is their duty that they must do it. But sometimes they go too far, and things that must not happen can happen.

This time this policeman went too far, and this black man died, so, he must be punished for what he did; but this does not mean that the entire police force is to blame; it can only mean that the police officers must be instructed better, how to carry on with their work without going too far. You see, these things happen, because there are many violent people over there, so, the police are on edge and overreact, because the police themselves have been killed, so, they need to be like that to survive.

Anyhow, the most strange things are happening, I have seen on TV policemen kneel in front of the rioting black people, which I do not know what they want to convey to the black rioters, whether they want to say, we understand you, but do not push us too much otherwise, we have to use our force or what? Beside that I have seen Ms Nancy Pelosi the USA house speaker to kneel for 8 minutes and 46 second. This makes me feel sick in the stomach, to see a high-ranking politician kneel for people that do not respect the laws. But then, politicians are strange creatures, they do strange things to achieve what they want to achieve; I believe that she wanted to say that these things must be fixed, by passing a law that forbids the police to use excessive force, when they do their job and are not in danger themselves.

What is missing here is the reason why George Floyd was being arrested, and the reason why this police office was so infuriated that ended unwillingly killing George Floyd. Perhaps the reason is that there is too much violence in this town. To show you what I mean, I am going to talk about the following example that has happened in the same city; this time was an Australian woman shot head by police.

-------------------

Australian woman killed by police in America

This is the woman that got killed in Minneapolis, she was trying to help and got killed. But George Floyd was trying to rob somebody, by using counterfeit money, the police arrested him. He must have upset the police to be treated like he was treated

Australian woman shot dead by police

Australian woman shot dead by police in Minneapolis

Now to show you that the police over there are stressed and overreact, I want to write about what happened to this Australian woman about 3 years ago. To do that the easy way, I have copied and pasted hereunder, how this happening was reported then in Minneapolis.

So, I quote;

NEW details have emerged about the fatal police shooting of an Australian woman in Minneapolis. Justine Damond, 40, was killed in what police confirmed was an “officer-involved shooting” in the city’s Fulton neighbourhood after a 911 call was made. Jul 17 2017

----------------------------

Minnesota newspaper The Star Tribune reports Ms Damond was dressed in her pyjamas when she went to the driver’s side door of the police vehicle that responded to the emergency call.

She was talking to the driver when the officer in the passenger seat pulled out his gun and shot across his fellow officer.

The Sydney woman had been living with her fiance and son in Minneapolis.

In a video shared online, Ms Damond’s stepson Zach Damond, 22, recounted what had happened on Saturday night before his stepmother called the police.

“I just know that she heard a sound in the alley, so she called the police, and the cops showed up,” he said.

“She was a very passionate woman, she probably, she thought something bad was happening, and next thing I know they take my best friend’s life.”

In the emotional video, Mr Damond went on to condemn police and demand answers over what happened.

(And of quote.)

You see what I mean, police over there are overstressed, that is why these things happen. Above I have pasted the Australian woman photo, as I found today on Face Book.

-------------------------------

This is happening in America today

Anyhow, above I have pasted the photo of the Australian woman killed by a black policeman in Minneapolis, to show you that the police force over there are overreacting. Anyhow, I believe that they are overreacting because they feel they are in danger, so, a lot of people over there must be violent, otherwise this overreaction would not exist. This is the reason this policeman reacted and pinned down George Floyd an African American, and he died.

But as we know, for every action there is a reaction, so, the African American people are rioting, their riots are violent they burn things and they are looting, some shops have been emptied completely. This makes one wonder, whether these people are waiting for an occasion like this to rob other people properties.

Anyhow, today because it was the policeman action that started all this, the police cannot use their strength to control the rioting people, because if they do use too much strength it could make things even worse. Anyhow, to describe what is happening over there, and how the police feel about this happening, I am going to paste what the head of Minneapolis police union said; and I quote;

The head of the Minneapolis police union says George Floyd’s “violent criminal history” needs to be remembered and that the protests over his death are the work of a “terrorist movement.”

“What is not being told is the violent criminal history of George Floyd. The media will not air this,” police union president Bob Kroll told his members in a letter posted Monday on Twitter.

Floyd had landed five years behind bars in 2009 for an assault and robbery two years earlier, and before that, had been convicted of charges ranging from theft with a firearm to drugs, the Daily Mail reported.

Floyd died last week after a white cop kneeled on the 46-year-old black man’s neck for nearly 9 minutes, a shocking incident that was caught on video and is sparking widespread violent protests, including in New York City. Floyd had allegedly just tried to pass a phony $20 bill before he died.

(End of quote.)

It seems to me, that the African Americans feel that the world is not treating them the same as everybody else, that is why they rebel. But is the world to blame, or they have a problem of their own, because if they behaved the same as the rest of the community, then they would be treated like the rest of them, from far away I don’t see any other reason. You see, every race or group of people behave in a different way, so, they have different problems, but there are similarities. So, today I see some similarities in what is happening to the Australian aborigines.

------------------------

The aborigine’s problems in Australia

Because there can be similarities between the African American and the aborigines in Australia, we are writing this sub-article hereunder, where an aborigine’s woman tells us her views about the riots in America and she compares them to the aborigines in Australia. The similarities are that both want to blame the police for their deaths and violence, so, let us see what she thinks about, Black Lives Matter.

--------------------------------

This is a copy and paste, so I quote;

Aboriginal activist Jacinta Nampijinpa Price has slammed Black Lives Matter protesters as ignorant 'narcissists' who don't understand indigenous problems.

'Just watching the footage of protesters and the conversations around white privilege make me sick to my stomach,' she told Sky News.

'These are narcissists ... they don't have to do any hard work just appear as though they care.'

Ms Price, a Warlpiri woman and Alice Springs Town Councillor, said more Aboriginal people die outside of police custody than within it, with the majority of Aboriginal people killed and maimed by other Aboriginal people.

But because the violence is out of sight, out of mind, protesters don't care, she said.

'You don't care because the perpetrators are also black, and that's the big problem,' she said.

'People only care if there's seen to be a white perpetrator.'

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2014–15 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey, more than one in five or 22.3 per cent of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged over 15 had experienced physical violence or threats in the previous 12 months.

End of quote.

Now that we have talked about the Australian Aborigines and their problems, let us go back to talk about the American problems. You see, what is happening in America might not be entirely the police fault, but it comes about because, the African Americans want to be free to do their own things, which most times are forbidden by laws, the rest of the community does not do them, and if they do these forbidden things they do them to a lesser degree. So, when these things happen, the police must intervene, and because the African Americans have done more forbidden things, it seems as if the police don’t like them, but it is what they have done that pushes to police to intervene, and not the other way. So, America has a problem that the politicians must fix, and explain to the public what is happening. In the hope that these things will stop. Now let us talk about what these crazy people do, while protesting under the banner “Black Lives Matter”.

--------------------------

The “Black Lives Matter” overreaction.

The protester of “Black Lives Matter” overreaction.

The entire western world extremist racists, under the banner of Black Lives Matter are going crazy, they are overreacting, some of them believe that by protesting, robbing, destroying properties, going around saying that they hate capitalism, while they go in supermarkets and empty these shops of everything they have, is the right thing to do. So, who is the offending fellow one may ask? Of course, the police must do something when they rob, and even more when they rob with violence.

Then they go around saying that they want to kill police offices, because the police stop them doing what they want to do, mainly looting other people properties that belong to people that have worked hard to own them and other things. After doing all these nasty things, they still believe that they are good citizen, so, they want to be treated as model citizen. But their dishonest actions can only achieve the opposite result because robbery and violence can only bring more violence.

Anyhow, at the present time, the protester have a good excuse to protest for the death of George Floyd, but because they are being violent and overreacting, what they are doing is wrong, and instead of bringing better things in the future, it may bring trouble. But wait a minute there is more.

While they protest, they go out of their way to destroy monuments, as if it is the fault of the person on the monument their problem. They have even vandalized Cristoforo Colombo statues, they seem that they would like to destroy, all those personalities that the white people are proud of, what else can be the reason?

Anyhow, what they are doing cannot help their cause, because they want to be treated from the police, as if they are docile people, when they are aggressive. You see, if they can behave like the white community does, then the police can treat them the same; but as you can see from what they are doing now, they are using a lot of violence, so, they are not docile.

Seeing all this violence happening I am worried, I am worried because it looks like more like a movement that wants to go is own way, instead of wanting to find how to integrate with the rest of the community. So, I am asking myself, where will this end, I believe that this has the potential to take us back over 60 years ago, when the African Americans were living in separate zones.

If that happens, then we must feel sorry for the effort that President J. F. Kennedy, and Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. (just to name a few that come to my mind); for the effort they made to end the division, between races. Because today we can go back to square one, but that can be prevented, if today politicians work a solution quickly. I also wonder, if these three politicians that I have mentioned above were alive today, what would they say to overcome today problems. I am sure that they would find something to say to calm the crowds, but today politicians seem to be lost to find the right things to say.

------------------------------------

America and Donald Trump problems.

We have talked about many things happening in the world. Now we want to talk about how we see the American politics. What we see from far away today, is that even America one of the richest and powerful country in the world has problems. The biggest problem seems to be political. Political problems are strange, because most times depends how people like or do not like you and your policies.

So, today President Donald Trump has many problems, the biggest problem is that the media does not like him, so, they are trying to bring him down, that is the reason why they have not said anything that could have helped Trump to calm people down. You see, Trump is not a politician that can calm people down by twisting things around, he says things the way he sees them, whether people like it or not, so, many people resent that.

Anyhow, today the problems in America are two folds, first is the COVID 19 problem, where to politicians should tell the people what to do. Here President Trump has done what he could in his own way, it was not the best, but it was okay; anyhow, this problem will be solved in the same way the rest of the world solves it.

The second problem is going to be harder to solve, because it needs people that know how to influence and guide the crowds, but up to today no politician has come out to talk the crowd and guide them, because the crown is difficult to control. So, it seems to me that to control what is happening, political parties must work together and show a united front, that is the only way I see to solve this problem of the African Americans rebellion, well not really a rebellion but they are rioting and looting.

From what I understand, they need to pass laws that will make the police more accountable. I believe that these laws must state clearly what the police should not do when they arrest someone, so that what has happened to George Floyd does never happen again, and other amendments as they see fit.

Anyhow, let us hope that the political parties of America, just for this time show a united front and shows no preference to the Black Lives Matter. And if the Black Lives Matter Movement do not like it, they can form their own party. Well, this is just a thought, and I hope that they follow the mainstream political parties.

I believe that we have talked about the strange things that happen in the world, and this article is becoming too long. So, see you in another article, whenever I can think of something else to write about.
