Does your opinion change if you know the level of threat by those who are at said to be not attacking police such as whether they had a gun, knife or other weapon or were charging police with more than a few mentally ill people do with or without a toy weapons.

It was a lot easier to analyse this database before the Washington Post removed the data filter that easily told you whether there was an attack in progress or not. That filter was inexplicably removed about a year ago.

The retention of that filter would have helped illustrate the point that the Washington Post conceded when it compiled this database. That was less than 5% of all police shootings are in any way suspicious.

.@JudithCollinsMP showed that @JacindaArdern does not know when to stop digging

Judith Collins today in Question Time showed that Jacinda Ardern does not know when to stop digging. Ardern quoted a snippet of the question put to the police minister at the recent police conference.

That selectivity allowed Collins to right to quote the conference question in full and her full answer, which was not just about money poverty but also about

“… a poverty of ideas, a poverty of parental responsibility, a poverty of love, a poverty of caring …”.

Later Collins said she does not agree with Labour saying today that poverty causes crime.

The Labour Party showed that it is no longer rooted in working class values when it argues that poverty is not linked to a poverty of responsibility and of parental love.

There are plenty of poor people who do not resort to crime and who despise those that do, in part because they often make them the victims of their crimes including burglary.
