      Stunning photography, that shows with an acute wit the bad side of Amerikkka.

      The comments and your picture title are interesting. Were you really there? Were you the photographer? It's not a "crime" scene as far as we know. This scene could just as well have been in Canada and indeed I've witnessed similar routinely.

      Look again at the New York picture and my Toronto one. There's no visible evidence of crime (presumption of innocence is important here). There's no violence. No weapons are drawn. Those apprehended will have been advised of, and will receive benefit of, considerable rights.

      This might well have been happening for the protection of the apprehended or for the protection of others. Typically, a road rage incident, personal argument getting out of hand, sickness or inebriation.

      These things happen, and when they do it is more often than not in the pursuit of peace, order and good government. And the police in North American jurisdictions, but particularly New York and Toronto in my experience, are fair and compassionate, but firm when they need to be.

      So, please, let's avoid the hasty, sweeping judgements.

      The word "routine" is rather depressing...those apprehended are required to adopt a submissive posture...the officers seem to be looking rather pleased...in the uk you would have been committing an offence by taking such a photograph under current laws if I am not mistaken...

      Seen in the group"monomania" (?)

      Which conditions are creating our identity - parallel to the chromosomes? The city we are living in, our jobs, friends, the chosen lifestyle, the typical weather conditions, the music maybe too? The author Stephen Baum, Jewish, raised in the Bronx, New York. His novel "UP IN THE BRONX" for sure had some autobiographical inspirations. The writer studied in Jerusalem, later he came back to the U.S. (California). We can discover similar changes watching the life of his novel's main character Jack. The first part is a wonderful description of the Bronx neighborhood, New York in the seventies: the rich, the poor, the criminals, the typical jobs and love affairs, the weather all over the year - congenial to the fate, suffered by the main characters: Jack, Maria, Madeleine, Herbert etc. - I often had a flashback to other novels I already read: by John dos Passos (Manhattan Transfer) or Henry Miller (the Sexus, Nexus, Plexus trilogy). In part two Stephen Baum gives a short description of Israel (and then California, L.A.) twenty years later, in the nineties. I'm a German follower of the author's daily blog too. Living in another country with another history. But creating an own identity we both know the same procedure: to get some distance to the neighborhood, maybe the whole nation, at least the religion, developing some sarcasm and self-reliance. I'm not Jewish (but have Jewish friends nevertheless who escaped the Third Reich in New York), but I understand the goal, to be free, not fixed in the horizon of one nation or religion. Both we have the same passion, Stephen Baum and me: Blues music. A new step, leaving a cultural box for both of us. A human being is able to create an own personal identity if he has enough courage. Parallel to his book the author produced a blues CD with lyrics congenial to his book. Actually my favorite audio tracks!
