The violence of the police, even though it’s neater and more socially acceptable, is far worse than the justice we dished out. As mad as I am, I don’t want to see that dude put in handcuffs, locked in a cage and facing charges that will follow him the rest of his life. I’ve been to jail. I’ve been beat by the cops and I’ve had charges and I don’t wish that on anybody.”

Negative Swiss 50-year bond yields just shattered the global insecurity barometer – “Last week, Switzerland announced that all of its bonds would pay negative yields, even the 50-year ones.

So kann er sich etwas als Märtyrer fühlen.” #hatertainment
