Police In Thailand Lay Down Vests and Barricades In Solidarity With Protestors | Political Blind Spot

In a stunning turn of events today in Thailand, riot police yielded to the peaceful protesters they were ordered to harass and blocked. They police removing barricades and their helmets as a sign of solidarity.

The protesters explain that their goal is to destroy the political machine of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who is accused of widespread corruption and abuse of power. Thaksin’s sister, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, is currently in power, and is seen as a puppet of her brother.

Suthep Thaugsuban, the leader of the widespread protests that have been going on in Thailand, told his supporters to storm the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau. This was one of the primary buildings they vowed to take over in their vow to topple the Shinawatra government.

The move by police has surprised many, and marks a turning point in the protests and a potential shift in power.

Here’s some fun regarding WA’s recently passed idiotic gun law.

I really don’t understand how handing someone a firearm while their are under your direct supervision is considered a “transfer”. It also seems counterproductive to pass legislation which hampers with firearms education and safety classes.

Gotta love fear based “feel good” legislation for things like this though. It boggles the mind to think anyone would see this as logical or sensible.

I hate this.

Ferguson protests in LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM.

Bringing their “no justice, no peace” bullshit to other side of the pond.

Where’s the justice for the 1,400 white girls that got dragged into a rape circle by a Muslim gang? The British police, in fears of being labelled racist did nothing about it….

Wanna know what’s bullshit?

A genius is precisely a man who defies all schools and rules, who deviates from the traditional roads of routine and opens up new paths through land inaccessible before… But, on the other hand, the government can bring about conditions which paralyze the efforts of a creative spirit and prevent him from rendering useful services to the community.
