    Morrison's worker is sacked after calling a shopper a 'black c***' in furious foul-mouthed rant in London supermarket
    Staff held their co-worker back as she hurled racial abuse at a black customer
    Shocked bystanders gasped at the dramatic, loud screaming in Palmers Green
    People on social media called for the employee to 'be sacked' from Morrison's





    The employee hurled abuse at the black customer as security held the man back and staff tried to restrain the worker in a store in Palmers Green, London. Shocked bystanders looked on as colleagues repeatedly struggled to keep the woman under control and away from the man. The video shows the man being constrained by security as a woman off-camera is heard shouting. Still out-of-view the Morrison's employee says: 'All I said to you was turn the card over you stupid f**** c***.' The black customer responds: 'They are going to have to sack you.'

    I dont understand either.
    Calling black people monkeys, and punching old men, are beyond me.

    Older man is about 60 years out of date. He was being pretty hateful and not nice to listen to.

    The younger guy punching a man of his age, not great. Did not see the punch to work out if it would be classed as a 'precision punch' though. I just heard a lot of noise and the use of the word "monkey".

    The older man apparently threw the first punch according to the recorder of the video. We don't know or will find out why he did what he did.

    Don't like this at all. It's setting a bad predecence on what we can and cannot say while curtailing free speech under the guise of politeness and not offending anyone.

    “There is no evidence to support the suggestion that 'nitty-gritty' has any connection with slave ships. It may have originated in the USA as an African-American expression, but that's as near as it gets to slavery. It isn't even recorded in print until the 1930s, long after slave ships had disappeared, and none of the early references make any link to slavery.”

    Nine protesters confronted by gun-toting couple backed by Trump issued trespassing citations


    Nine protesters who were confronted by a gun-toting couple in St Louis while passing their house during a Black Lives Matter march have been issued with trespassing citations.

    Police spokeswoman Evita Caldwell confirmed that nine of the roughly 300 protesters who passed the McCloskey residence in June have been issued summons, but that a decision on whether to issue charges on the citations is still pending with the St Louis City Counselor’s office.

    Reverend Darryl Gray, who led the protest, called the citations an attempt to intimidate peaceful protesters. “We’re not going to be threatened, and that’s what’s happening across this country,” said Rev Gray, who was not issued a summons

    “You’ve got local governments and states who are trying to charge protesters, financially charge them, wanting them to pay costs. You’ve got others who want to make it a law against exercising our First Amendment right.”

    Mark and Patricia McCloskey were photographed brandishing semi-automatic guns at the protesters who walked past their $1.5m home during the protest following the killing in police custody of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis.

    The couple, who have since been supported by the president, was charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon as a result of the incident and complained they face criminal charges rather than “the mob” they claim threatened them during an appearance at the Republican National Convention.


    The McCloskeys claimed the demonstrators ignored a “No Trespassing” sign and broke through a gate onto their private street, but protest leaders said the gate was open. No shots were fired during the incident.

    “The radicals are not content just marching in the streets,” said Mr McCloskey during the video recorded for the RNC. “They want to walk the halls of Congress. They want power. This is Joe Biden’s party. These are the people who will be in charge.”

    Several Republican leaders, including Mr Trump, have urged attorney general William Barr to pursue a civil rights investigation of the prosecutor who filed the charges. Their case is still pending in court.

    Missouri law allows homeowners to use force, even lethal force, to defend their homes. Kim Gardner, a Democrat, said the guns created the risk of bloodshed.

    A police probable cause statement said protesters feared “being injured due to Ms McCloskey’s finger being on the trigger, coupled with her excited demeanour.”

    Activist Ohun Ashe said on 4 September that she had received a summons for trespassing outside the McCloskeys’ home. “I had a gun waved in my face by them but trespassing is what matters?” she wrote on Twitter.

    It was not clear why just nine of the around 300 protesters were issued summonses. Police declined to comment beyond a brief acknowledgement of the summonses when contacted by the Associated Press.
