Did the man confront the police? Yes. Is there multiple other ways they could have handled this situation? Absolutely (a simple detainment comes to mind, or even a simple shove to the side while assisting the older man in moving). Should we hold these police accountable? Absolutely.

Went ahead and made my first “big” purchase this afternoon. I feel like I paid more than the item was worth, but at least the athlete is getting the money. I’d also be curious as to what you guys think is the appropriate price for a gold medal from the Mediterranean Beach Games? This isn’t the item I purchased, but I have seen one for sale recently.
Hungarian media now reports (quoting minister of foreign affairs) that from tomorrow, border is open mutually between Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Hungary for each other’s citizens, with no quarantine, no negative test requirement. Big if true (and hopefully it does not lead to more Covid)
Yes, I also wanted to mention the latest statement of the WH spokeswoman: normally one reads such stuff on The Onion and similar satirical websites. But now this is the reality, FFS! During the last months of the Tsar’s rule in Russia, when Rasputin ran amok, the French ambassador wrote home to his superiors: “Unfortunately, I am now forced to conclude that the Russian Empire is presently governed by lunatics.” (qoute maybe not precise) Wonder if any diplomat now reports something similar home from Washington....
The three key findings from an independent report into the IWF https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/weightlifting/52922604 1) IWF is monumentally corrupt. 2) Positive doping results covered up. 3) The sky is still blue.
No, I don’t, but this feels like a case where everyone was pretty much complicit in the system (except maybe the smaller NFs). You are right that I shouldn’t accuse everyone of being guilty. This is just me being frustrated with the horrible state of governance in international sports.
3570 new cases today, more than any other day, all time high ! I won't be surprised if that reaches 4000 tomorrow or Saturday. no surprise at all, social distancing is dead and buried . COVID-19 is not on the headlines anymore, nobody cares and it seems almost everybody thinks this is over ! I'm very very disappointed in most of my friends, my relatives, even my own sister, most of them are highly educated but now I found out how irresponsible they are I had been mocked by some of them for being "sissy" (aka responsible) the death rate is still relatively low (what a shame to consider +50 deaths per day as low ) but we will see if that changes in a week or two with this new wave which is probably the second peak.
tbh, I'm more disgusted by the fact that all the weightlifting world is still considered a sport and has full Olympic status than by the things revealed here (which were well known even without this report)... and if we have to consider the fact that Ajan was one of the founding members of WADA and the Cologne Laboratory history, how can we still trust this bunch of cheaters???
You do not need to be a balck American to feel it and know that racism issues have been there in America for ages. This issue has been there long ago and it is still a very big issue in America. All the black people in America basically need to fight on to earn their equal rights.
