Interesting ... the who from where ..

This will take you 30 seconds on Google to answer. Best not post names here. Legal difficulties and what have you.

Would add this is not an "odd" occurance. Maybe less so now, but very common back in the day...

Cash and carry cards for the weekly grocery shop is the old version of same.

Watching Newsnight BBC. Interesting piece on an AI Tech used by US police called SHOT SPOTTER:


The problems:


Shotspotter installs 20 to 25 microphones per square mile in the cities where it is installed, and uses those microphones to try to identify and locate the sound of gunshots.

ANS?


According to the police, a high proportion were from other parts of the country and had “swarmed” to Rotterdam at short notice in response to messages on social media, intent on causing destruction.

Whether these “kids” were motivated by anything other than “the perfect evening’s escapism, fighting with riot police” – as criminologist Marijke Drogt put it – is anyone’s guess, though it’s an avenue worth exploring, especially in a country with a thriving criminal underworld.

However, to characterise what happened at the weekend as “anti-lockdown riots”, as part of a Europewide movement, or as in any way related to coronavirus other than as the perfect opportunity to create mayhem is an unrealistic stretch at best.

So…not only is France an entirely different country to the one where Rotterdam is, its overseas department of Guadeloupe, is wholly the width of the entire Atlantic Ocean away from Rotterdam.

Why are you referencing the Dutch port city of Rotterdam, when you were asked about what groups you reckon are “proceeding with wanton violence” on Guadeloupe?


Whole of Europe and more are gone nuts .. excuse vaccine mandates but I am sure thats just the excuse for certain groups to proceed with wanton violence and destabilize societies

So, I’ll ask again, what groups on Guadeloupe are proceeding with wanton violence?

This is worth mentioning


A campaign by PC Andrew Harper's widow to give mandatory life sentences to the killers of emergency service workers has been backed by the government.

Newly-married PC Harper was 28 when he was dragged to his death by a getaway car in August 2019. Three teenagers were jailed for manslaughter.

The Ministry of Justice said it would aim to pass Harper's Law in England and Wales "as soon as possible".

Lissie Harper said she was delighted and her late husband would be proud.

If passed, the new law would introduce mandatory life sentences for those who kill on-duty emergency workers while committing a crime.

It includes police, prison officers, firefighters, and paramedics and will be applicable unless there are "truly exceptional circumstances".
