Take 15 mins. Watch this video. It's more important to you than you know.

This is what China is doing, but Western governments are on exactly the same path #technologically; they just have a different set of #rationalisations.

The #DatabaseState isn't coming. It's already here.
It doesn't matter if your Government's #justification is #innovation ("AI is cool!"), #PublicSafety ("Think of the kids!"), or #efficiency ("People are expensive, let's use algorithms instead") - installing the #tools of #totalitarianism only ends up in one place.

It was true...
...of @ukhomeoffice's centralised #biometric National Identity Register - the heart of the #IDcards scheme in the 2000s - and is as true of @DCMS's "Identity & Attributes Trust Framework" 👇 of which the first 'adopters' include the #HomeOffice (again)...

"Biographies of late bloomers...might leave us with lessons about how some people can be helped to flourish earlier—but...it will show us that some talents come to fruition differently. We should encourage a diversity of paths to success." @HenryEOliver greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/05/13/dai…

Just got this mailer from the @MinnesotaDFL senior caucus (not a senior, thanks)!
•Why is the DFL taking an anti-public safety position on questions 1+2?
•Why aren’t #ward9 voters being told to vote for their endorsed candidate, @ChavezForWard9?!

#yeson2 #noyesyes ImageImage
2/ I also don’t appreciate any @MinnesotaDFL caucus telling me I should vote for @Jacob_Frey after #GeorgeFloyd was lynched in my community and how gun violence survivors are treated in #Minneapolis. HE DIDN’T WIN THE DFL ENDORSEMENT!! @SheilaFTP @kateknuth @MayorPerry4Mpls
3/ I’m sure @annapoetic @cmlisagoodman and @LineaPalmisano are lovely people but they’ve done absolutely nothing for gun violence survivors. How is this a #publicsafety ballot again? #endgunviolence #forevershelley #minneapolis @DflSe

Report from EU Commission highlights major inadequacies in materials submitted to #AnBordPleanala for remedial assessment on unlawful #DerryBrien #Windfarm. This is compounded by really serious failings in Board's handling of #PublicParticipation process
independent.ie/business/farmi…
An application went to Board in August 2020, but a further round on consultation was triggered given changes made to the Irish legislation for this process to address issues identified in a Supreme Court ruling in July 1 in case taken by An Taisce. But ....
Despite the fact the Oireachtas had required in primary legislation the new info to be made available online by An Bord Pleanala they didn't do so for over 3 weeks of a 5 week consultation - buried in height of August holiday period & weeks after the issue was highlighted to them

#COVID19 and kids: "This virus scares me. Some of my friends have gotten it. My grandmother got it and was really sick. I think we should all do what we can to stop this. I’m wearing my mask at school. Hope I can get the vaccine soon.” -- Jim, 14. (1/7)
Kids and #MaskMandates: "Coronavirus has hurt all of us. I hate missing school. All of us are wearing masks. Not sure when kids can get the vaccine. I hope it’s soon.” -- Lauren, 12
Kids and #vaccination: "My mom and dad think the virus is under control now. They keep telling me not to worry about it. They let me wear my mask but they don’t push it. I don’t think they’ve been vaccinated. I hope they will let me get the shot.” -- Mike, 15 (3/7)

1/7 The key question is: will the firearms bill announced yesterday make Canadians more safe? The answer is no. #canpoli #publicsafety #firearms
2/7 Nearly 500 shootings in Toronto last yr. Near record yr (despite existing gun ban & lockdwns) & vast majority by gangs- with illegal guns. Bill C-21 muni power & confiscation-in-place program only targets already law abiding firearms owners.
3/7 #CPC opposes the OiC & the confiscation of firearms from law abiding, licensed owners. How can #LPC actually not have brought forward compensation details while prohibiting use, transfer, transport, or sale?

Stray-bullet shootings are situations where a bullet skips an intended person or sociogeographic space, resulting in the injury or death of an unintended person(s)
either from the gunshot itself or by a secondary mechanism, such as broken glasses or objects sent flying by a stray bullet.

Typical examples are: gunfire exchanges, gunshots to disperse large crowds, shootings of bystanders who had no active role in a violent incidents,
shooting sports, celebratory gunfire and related activities. However, Stray-bullet shootings are largely a byproduct of intentional violence, what we euphemistically call collateral damage.

1/ During the final session of the 2020 Religion News Association Annual Conference, I made this statement. What follows is my statement on the #abortion debate. #rna2020virtual Image
2/ Whoever builds the house sets parameters for possiblities within. Burned by gains of #CivilRights, seething from Supreme Court anti-segregation ruling (Bob Jones vs USA), southern White men constructed #abortion debate framework in 1983 as staging ground for cultural warfare.
3/ Pro-life vs Pro-choice is an inhuman frame, meant to draw battle lines, meant to set the stage for winners/losers. It is so last-century. And it is inaccurate. Those who built the pro-life frame have proven beyond a shadow of doubt, what they really cared about is white life.

Last night, at around 2am, a young man's life was ended during an altercation involving guns.

We don't have all the details right now, and we may never. But it's almost certain that this wasn't a random incident - gun violence usually isn't.

The #YYC Public Safety Task Force will be meeting for the third time on Friday (September 18th). We have reviewed many of the preventative programs available locally, and we are shifting the conversation towards the gaps and challenges facing those who work to make Calgary safer.
We can't do this alone.

Let's work together to build a safer city, while listening to subject-matter experts as well as ordinary citizens. If we delay these challenging conversations, we will continue waking up to headlines like this.

Today is a down-payment on community investments and an ongoing commitment to transform how we deliver community-supported public safety services across the city. /2
Our collective commitments now, plant the seeds and provide a blueprint for massive divestment from our militarized police force and reinvestment in community-based public safety #solutions. Phase 2 of this work begins in just 7 weeks. /3

Tomorrow @LACountyBOS will hear a last minute motion which will devastate public safety and continue to not only to defund @LASDHQ, but @LADAOffice, @LACProbation, and @LASuperiorCourt as well.
 It is listed as Supplemental Agenda item 51-C (bos.lacounty.gov/LinkClick.aspx…) Image
This agenda item has the potential to cut another $330 million (or more) just from @LASDHQ. Don’t be fooled by the title, “Reimagining LA County: Shifting Budget Priorities to Revitalize Under-Resourced and Low-Income Communities”

This will destroy #publicsafety. ImageImage
If you care about safer streets and communities for your family, call the @LACountyBOS and voice your concerns during the Board meeting tomorrow.

Phone: 1-844 767 5651
Participant code: 9676434

Well, it’s that time again! Time to educate and advocate. Ever wonder what #Ontario #SpecialConstables are?
What they do?
Why they do it?
How they do it?
This is the thread for you!
#TOpoli #partnersinpublicsafety 1/12
#DYK #SpecialConstables are sworn Peace Officers, defined in s.2 of the Criminal Code of Canada. laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/c-46/… SPC appointments are approved by the local police services boards with only federal, provincial and municipal authorities needed to fulfil their function 2/12
#DYK #SpecialConstables are employed by 1) Police Services and 2) Non-Police employers such as Housing, Transit and Universities. They are not security and not police. A Special Constable is a Special Constable. 3/12
