A taser is a weapon. The offender who resisted arrest pointed it at the cop. The cop defended himself.
And it really is as simple as that .

MK .... are you Reverend Curtis ? :lol: :lol:
Had to Google that one mate......cheeky sod..... :lol:

Nah... just commenting on what I'm watching...I'm a supporter of the old bill...here and over there...I've been posting about
it...defending them....But This....is a cut and dried illegal killing...who's defence I can rip to shreds,moreso as more stuff
comes in...poss now the Taser was spent after he fired ,he would have known...was out of distance for it to be effective..
was reaching for gun before victim looked round to fire taser...goes on mate....he's done for...10/15.....

Seriously WTF would he do that....

The whole thing sucks...that copper was looking for something to happen...

I looked over Jordan and what did I see? Comin' for to carry me home There was a band of angels, a-comin' after me Comin' for to carry me home Swing low, sweet chariot Comin' for to carry me home Swing low, sweet chariot Comin' for to carry me home I'm sometimes up, and I'm sometimes down Comin' for to carry me home But but I know my soul is heavenly bound Comin' for to carry me home Swing low, sweet chariot Comin' for to carry me home Swing low, sweet chariot Comin' for to carry me home If you get there before I do Comin' for to carry me home Tell all my friends that I'm a-comin' too Comin' for to carry me home Swing low, sweet chariot Comin' for to carry me home Swing low, sweet chariot Comin' for to carry me home And now they're comin' for to carry me home.

I'm not sure who Jordan is but the rest of it's pretty standard blues gospel stuff. A kind of mournful dirge with the emphasis on getting "home" where ever that is,presumably a good place. A safe place.

You can change the lyrics but so what,it's kind of mythical and vague anyhow. And the fact it was first sang by a slave in 1860 so what ?
Bob Dylan on being questioned what Idiot Wind meant, said "It's just a song"

All this correction is just a bunch of people,running about seeking dark mischief where none exists and promoting themselves into the bargain.It's a lie.

It's now turning into a witch hunt.

Previously innocuous items or sayings are being condemned. When nobody gave it a thought in the past. Did Mauro Itoje walk off the field in protest at Twickers when it was sung in the past ? Were there leftie students with banners outside Tesco's chanting 'Free the rice' ?

Next up, we'll have people phoning help lines to grass up neighbours for having white t shirts on the washing line and get the pc pc's round to educate us. Or worse.



She turned me into a newt.

I got better.

At a guess it’s the River Jordan or maybe even the Country though I doubt it existed at the time it was originally sung.

The country of Jordan was founded in the 20th century so it must be the river.

Or maybe Katie Price.
