Police statistics in Britain show that most offenders in child exploitation cases are white men, and most of the abuse takes place online, at home or in institutions such as schools. But former prosecutor Nazir Afzal, who has brought many abusers to trial, says Pakistani men are disproportionately involved in the sort of street grooming seen in recent high-profile cases. He says that reflects the high number of South Asian men working for taxi firms and takeaway restaurants in the late-night economy, as well as their widespread sexist attitudes about women.

Nice to see this acknowledged.

You don't say! Men who are culturally against women's rights have been abusing women?!?!

"South Asian men" is so misleading. There are barely any Indians or Sri Lankans involved in this bullshit.

Culture.

Jimmy Carter was right, we are like a five dollar whore

Oh, what's that I hear? The weather's all screwy? You got a global warming problem? Boo-fucking-hoo! I was telling you morons to turn off your lights and unplug all your shit at night to conserve energy in 19-fuckin'-75, for chrissake. Gee, I wonder what woulda happened if we'd all switched to solar power like I fucking did back when we had a fucking chance to do something about it. Think we'd still be sucking Saudi Arabia's dick like a five-dollar whore?

The Onion was right, anyway.

Carter explicitly established energy policies to get the US off of oil from the region. The wide use of Wind Turbines, Solar Panels, and EVs can be linked back to his policies.

Also put solar panels on the white house, but then they were removed by Reagan. Obama put them back on(new ones).

Saudis furiously taking notes: doesn't matter how important he is... do in own country... not after officially inviting him... never in an embassy...

Political opponents being snuffed out by autocrats and dictators. Without a unified NATO or UN, there is no fear of recourse for governments assassinating citizens.

Most important. Don't. Get. Caught. Make it look like an accident. Look like, not only say.

Also the Interpol chief may actually still be alive.

China‘s approach is to detain rather than assassinate. Cleaner. It looks less barbaric. They have more deniability (claim they are just helping with inquiries or under a criminal investigation). And in extreme cases they may be able to get the person to make a fake confession.

I do not usually smoke but since it was a historic day for Canada I thought I'd try,' she told AFP.

Despres smoked bought pot with a low level of THC, the psychoactive agent in cannabis.

'My God it's the bomb!' she said and returned with friends Thursday to buy more.

This lady is going to be found face down in a pile of Tim Horton's doughnuts wearing a Doritos bag like a hat.

I was in line yesterday (day two) in one of several dispensaries. The line still took an hour and a half to get through at 1pm.

Several other dispensaries in the city were closed because they sold all their product on day one

"After waiting seven hours in line at a store in downtown Montreal on Wednesday, Alexandre, 30, said he was turned away at closing at 9pm. Police stepped in to disperse the crowd, without incident."

Try that with alcohol.

When Nevada first legalized it, they ran out almost immediately. The governor (I believe) called a State of Emergency as a result. 😂

The shortage had a lot to do w who was legally allowed to ship it iirc.
