    I hear that a lot, but I can't help but think "well, not the ones that solve murders."

    I watch too much true crime.

    I know political talk is frowned upon in this thread (for the most part) but...

    People complaining about the riots and looting need to take a step back and remember history. Us white Americans started a riot that resulted in tons of damaged property... The fucking Boston Tea Party.

    WE RIOTED BECAUSE OF A ONE CENT TAX INCREASE ON A FUCKING BEVERAGE.

    I don't think we have any right to question why people are rioting against murders.

    Why are you bringing your young children with you. Shit can pop off at any given moment, and not for nothing if I’m standing on my porch and see armored military type vehicles and a squad in full gear coming down my street I don’t need to be told more then once, if even, to go in my house.

    Evidently, the kid and her dad were passing through hoping to get home (this was about 4 pm). And I think the cops shooting a paintball gun as a second means of 'communication' is unacceptable (& hearing one them yell 'light 'em up' sounds pretty fucking facist, like someone who had been in action and missed it.) I doubt those on the porch knew at first it was not live ammunition, which makes this more like sadistic terror than enforcement of the law.
    Guess I am just a snowflake.

    My comments are based on what I see in the videos, without the background you bring up that’s all I can go by. What’s crazy is that I watched the video again and was “like why the father masked up if they were just going home” forgetting we are still in quarantine. The people on the porch though, who do you think these men/women in full tactical gear are talking to? The light’em up line I don’t know, it is what it is. I can see the side of it being said in real combat situations and got carried over.

    The thing with the porch is, they were on their property. Me personally? I would have hightailed in immediately. But the curfew here in MN stated that you could be on your property. This is overstepping the bounds of the rules they set themselves. It also stated no travel on roads unless you are authorized personal and/or coming to or from work. I know of someone coming home from work in mpls, which is part of the ok'd travel, and their windshield was shot out with paintballs and rubber bullets, they were arrested, given citations, and told to walk home because their vehicle was impounded. They shot first, asked questions later. It's insane. If they wanted no travel, they should not have announced exceptions...

    In the “Land of the Free” and where “All Lives Matter”, what justification is there for a cop macing a child?

    The fact that our government has a more prompt and resource driven response to protesting the murder of an innocent black man versus a global pandemic speaks more than volumes to the systemic abuse that has been at hand for centuries.

    There CONTINUES to be a police brutality pandemic issue in this country and the simple fact that our president has and will continue to ignite it amongst his supporters deserves, at the very least, a big - FUCK YOU FUCK YOU.

    I get where you're coming from, but since humans are fucking animals I'm thankful for every cop (and emergency service worker in general) that still chooses to do this job in the shithole world we live in. That the US and whole Western "civilization" have come to a point where they're basically actively pushing the police to the far right by making their working conditions as miserable as possible is what truly worries me.

    The police are necessary. But, I think anyone that has power over others needs regular psych evaluations, therapy, and mindfulness training. Power needs to be controlled.

    You'd be surprised how many people with PTSD and repressed anger and masculinity issues are working in the military and police forces without any attempt to seek support and help when needed. Or maybe you wouldn't be surprised...

    Exactly. But a lot of people suffer PTSD and trauma. You see it on the streets right now. Have to start fixing it with those who weild power.

    The Boston Tea Party should be never used as an excuse for the rioting and looting going on right now. It's a completely separate issue from this one. That was an organized attack in a very specific brand of tea used to hurt the British. There's no organization in what's going on right now.

    By that same logic, the British were a localized threat across the ocean. Police and systematic racism are inherently ingrained into the fiber of our nation.

    EDIT: One was about "taxation without representation." The other is about the blind eye society has turned to multigenerational murder. And if we look at politics for the past 50-100 years, I would say that minorities have been taxed without equal representation for much longer than the colonials were.

    There’s a bill active in our legislature right now that would repeal 50-a, a law that basically makes it impossible for the public to see records of police misconduct in New York State. I believe now more than ever we need full transparency in the police force.

    That's unsettling.

    Ugghhh anybody else find PlanetxAsia's "charity sale" a bit of a WTF moment?? So a lot of people are doing charity sales atm all to help with legal fees, community outreach, support for injured people, support for counselling etc. I saw that PlanetXAsia were offering black blanks of their gross double-headed Gosura thing and I figured oh ok sure they are helping out as well, fine I guess.. good for them. But looking into the text on the post they are raising funds for some dinosaur sculptures that were defaced weeks ago in London. I mean, come on guys - if you're gonna raise money at this point in time there are better causes to support - and also anybody stupid enough to lay down 100 british pounds for their shit cheap blank vinyl (wayyyy overpriced) could probably have sent their money to several better causes. Yeah I've had a problem with these unoriginal fucks for years now but this jumping on the bandwagon just to join the "charity sale" gang and not even have it for an important cause really left a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe you guys could have at least held off for a bit or maybe you could have raised money when the dinosaurs were damaged two weeks ago you pathetic pandering pricks.

    Well, the timing is not necessarily ideal, but I don't see how one thing has anything to with another. Yes there are a lot of [earned] protests right now centred around minority rights, but what about the tens of thousands dying from Covid-19? And yes, we are in the midst of a pandemic, but what about the global poverty, starvation, and disease that is a real everyday problem facing people around the world? And then how about injustice, dictatorships, oppression, and apartheid states? The point is, just because you can support and believe in one thing, does not take away (or mean you should ignore) others.

    I don't see anything wrong with this, and as someone who lived with the Crystal Palace dinosaurs, I can appreciate what they mean to the community and history. You don't have to like it or even support it, but how can you get all up on your high horse when someone wants to do something good and selfless. This sort of righteous gatekeeping does not help anyone. If you don't like or agree with something, that's totally fine, just move along.

    I think what it boils down to is just as they latched onto and copied the 2HB trend, ripping off HxS ideas etc. they seem to be doing something charitable only because every other brand is doing a charity sale. However every other brand is raising funds for the larger issues at hand that you mentioned above. Why not raise funds for pandemic related relief or the independent stores that have been looted and don't have insurance? Just seems a bit insincere to only now do a fundraiser for these dinosaurs when the original post about the damage from the owners came out 2 weeks ago. If you've waited this long then maybe hold off for a bit while people's charity could go to much better causes. I'm sure the broken dino statues will still be there in a month's time. Lol at pulling out the "gatekeeping" card.. what are we gonna start a whole "sofubigate" thing now??

    Like I said Glenn, I agree with you that this is just perhaps unfortunate timing. I can't speak to what PlanetxAsia's motives were, and don't think we can assume. Maybe they have a connection to CP, or are just passionate about dinosaurs. But whatever the case is, I don't think it's right to attack someone who is doing some good, just because you think they should be doing something else. We all have the ability to stand up for the causes we believe in, and if you [the general you, not you] don't think something you believe in is getting enough support, than you can take action and give that support yourself. People too easily criticise from the sidelines these days, and think they have entitlement to do so.

    If anything the climate this week should be a sign that imposing our own personal opinions/beliefs on other groups of people should not be the go-to response.

    How about toy makers just making toys and not getting involved in charity? What would be wrong with that?

    Whoa. Just when I thought I couldn't see anything to make me lose more respect for fellow humans. That is just..... unbelievable. The fact that something like exists this is so disheartening.

    Again, I am not talking about PlanetxAsia here, but why shouldn't someone be proud and try to get support for something they believe in? People are fine to ignore political comments from toy makers as much as they want to, and view the toys as nothing else outside of the objects they are. In fact, I would advise that that is indeed the best approach to this hobby; look at something for what it is, and either get enjoyment out of it, or don't. It's totally personal. Ignore all hype, makers, markets, rarity, etc., and collect what makes you happy.

    But many other toy makers have come out with standpoints, fundraisers, etc., and I can't help but think that the same people would not bat an eye if it was from PK or Rich for example.
