10:13 am
a blind guys walking stick well known if you're one of the cops in northern england an elderly blind architect with taser in the back because his cane looks like a sword that was used in a nearby crime honest mistake because swords are often tubular and use this walking sticks more and more we hear stories like this like the handcuffed youth who is shot in the back to death or the unarmed guy in a wheelchair who got blown away by the boys in blue i understand that being in the police is rough everyone lies to you and any given day you could be shot dead so i get it when after a long police chase someone just snaps and in all honesty fire when the police might do the same thing but it takes a certain kind of person who enjoys abusing their uniform to make the helpless suffer you can't tolerate sadists or those with napoleon complexes in the police and you know what they aren't that hard to spot in the shower because if you like
10:14 am
to tase the elderly or shoot wheelchair bound people then you probably don't have much of a certain something but that's just my opinion. will two parties keep us politics a woman will. st. louis will new voices disrupt the power of power in. the us is america changes try. this election close monday nov fifth on r t. more news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. trying to corporations rule the day.

10:16 am
we know happy about it's something which we want a referendum on if you look at recent opinion polls eighty percent of people want a referendum around sixty percent of people actually want to leave the european union altogether so the people are certainly moving away the political class starts a new good debate the problem that you've got is that austerity doesn't exist in the european union and might exist in the member countries where we're asking to cut back on almost everything we have realised that if he's out the money doesn't. matter they spend more and more every single year the budget goes or a member states including states such as greece and portugal and ireland wouldn't serious trouble will be asked to put their hands in their pockets and give more to brussels it's wrong seventeen years it is now since the accounts of concerns of look if the european union was a company then the directors and the chief executive would all be in jail but it's not it's corrupt and that's another reason why the british people want that referendum and want to leave. israel could learn the hard way that friends aren't always there when you need the most it's been warned that if it attacks are wrong
