    That has a whiff of urban myth about it.

    It’s not 1st hand knowledge so you could be right, but it’s from a mate so I believe it to be true. Either way you it’s not the sort of “myth” i’d personally like to field-test.

    He had other tales, as you would expect, and not all were bad. The over-riding conclusion I came away with after hearing him speak is that it’s no place for anyone who values their safety or well-being.

    Your generalisation about blacks and whites are about as broad and urban myth-like as i’ve seen in a while.

    Police spokesman has said the police were surprised about the reporting of it as a mistake, and will request no bail…

    very sad, whatever the reason behind it.

    It was from personal experience, but, yes, it was a very broad generalisation.

    To be honest, I went off to lunch and expected this to be closed by the time I got back…

    Are we allowed to make jokes about the two police women shot by Dale Creegan?

    Or is it only South African models that are fair game?

    Having been to SA, and knowing others who live in SA, and others who’ve moved from SA, the country has problems, absolutely, but a lot of the ‘going to hell in a handcart’ stories come from bitter whites who are having a hard time adjusting to the fact that they can no longer boss around the black majority purely because of the colours of their respective skins.

    IME, and as a very broad generalisation, the ‘blacks’ were friendly and welcoming, the ‘whites’ were diffident and rude. It’s an odd country, and I’m not sure I liked it

    I agree totally with this. Stopped at plenty of red lights and didn’t die, get raped or mugged, neither did my girlfriend. Went to a few places where segregation was still evident and some of the white people were pretty nasty about it.

    For me you can crack on with either. Being that I think it is better to make light of the utterly depressing thing called being a human than be offended by stuff people say.

    Very poor taste hunting joke?

    Creegan had a glass eye so that would be my starting point

    I’m glad for you, really I am. How long were you there for?

    until they went green again?

    right before its closed

    Apparently, police psychologists reckon that Dale Cregan’s biggest problem was a total lack of perspective.

    Just a suggestion, and I may be going out on a limb here, but why don’t we all wait for a police investigation/trial first?

    Shocking; very poor taste. I can’t quite believe how low you have sunk

    But would you make such jokes in front of their families and loved ones? One of the ‘rules’ of this forum is ‘don’t say anything to someone on here you wouldn’t say to their face’. A sentiment I personally believe very strongly in. And one which i think can be applied to ‘humour’. Nothing wrong with a joke, but one that involves someone, that’s not said in front of them, is a bit cowardly really.

    You’re perfectly free to chose what you find funny though.

    They’re probably keeping an eye on it.
