A broken system?

A Boston tourist says in an exclusive NY1 report that he is scarred for life after a New York City police officer allegedly brutalized him during an arrest last month. NY1's Jeanine Ramirez filed the following report.

When Anthony Daly of Boston visited the city last month, he walked around normally. But his leg was broken in three places on December 27, the night he was taken into police custody at a Midtown hotel, and now doctors now say Daly may never walk the same way again. Source

Well. First they came after the African immigrants, I'm not an African Immigrant..carry on. Then they came after the African Americans even a Harvard Professor...I'm not an African American...carry on. Then they came after the Hispanics...who cares..not my problem. Now they've come after the Irishmen...oh oh. How could we have let this police brutally get so out of control?

McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, he started to leave.

"S'cuse me," said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had done. "What was that all about?"

"Nothing," he replied, "my wife just sent me out for a jar of olives."

Maybe his wife sent him out for olives? We shouldn't jump into conclusions.

This is actually a a popular poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group. In Niemöller's first utterance of it, in a January 6, 1946 speech before representatives of the Confessing Church in Frankfurt, it went

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out.
