h/t Breitbart; Police forces in Britain are facing questions over the waste of millions of pounds purchasing electric vehicles which are not up to the job of chasing criminals or responding to emergency situations.
Police ‘waste’ £1.5MILLION on electric cars that they admit are useless for chasing criminals because they ‘can’t go fast enough or far enough without a battery change’
- Reports found cars do not meet demands of urgent response or pursuit driving
- Forces have bought at least 448 environmentally-friendly vehicles to help them
- However almost all cars and vans are being used in non-emergency situations

Greenpeace have experienced a setback in their effort to stop global coal shipments.
Watch: Polish Border Guards Storm Greenpeace Boat Blocking Coal Shipment
10 Sep 2019
Video footage from Greenpeace showed the armed guards breaking a window to get into the captain’s bridge on the Rainbow Warrior, a tall sailing ship, and shouting that everyone should drop to the floor. The boarding occurred about 11 p.m. Monday.
Marek Jozefiak of Greenpeace said the ship’s captain and one activist remained detained Tuesday, along with the ship. Jozefiak, the coordinator of Greenpeace’s Climate and Energy campaign in Poland, expressed surprise at vehemence of the border guards’ actions against what he called a “peaceful action in defense of the environment.”

What can I say? Western governments might tolerate Greenpeace’s economically damaging theatrics, but other cultures are less patient.
The FBI on April 26 arrested Mark Steven Domingo, a former Army infantryman, on charges of plotting an Islamist terrorist attack against a white nationalist rally in Long Beach, California.
That was the 110th Islamist terrorism plot or attack since 9/11 and the 97th plot or attack to be attempted or carried out by homegrown terrorists.
Domingo first popped onto the FBI’s radar at the start of March, when he posted a message in a private group of a social media platform declaring his desire to commit an attack in the Los Angeles area.
He declared that “America needs another [Las Vegas] event,” referencing the deadly October 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 dead and hundreds injured, and posted that “there [must be] retribution” for the March 13 attack on a mosque and an Islamic center in Christchurch, New Zealand, according to federal prosecutors’ criminal complaint.

Two school shootings. Two completely different outcomes. What made the difference? Blaine Gaskill, a brave, well-trained School Resource Officer (SRO), acted without delay, to stop the shooter. It’s time to place a School Resource Officer (SRO) inside every school in America.
- Armed former student, with long history of mental health issues and problems with law enforcement, whose behavior “was so frightening to teachers that he’d been banned from even carrying a backpack into school,” enters school carrying a black duffle bag and opens fire. SRO stands outside the building and waits. Over 7 ½ minutes, 17 students and faculty members are killed and many are wounded.
- Armed student enters school. Fires first shot. SRO hears shot and in less than one minute, he engages the shooter. SRO kills the shooter. Result: 14-year-old boy wounded, stable condition, 16-year-old girl wounded, critical condition.
