Jussie Smollett

I’m angry at the Jussie Smollett situation,

 

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/20/entertainment/jussie-smollett-attack/index.html

 

I was genuinely concerned when I heard the reports of his racist and homophobic attack, concerned for all those who had faced this before and will face it in the future.

Then I was stunned when it was reported it could of been faked, waiting for the facts to come out something I didn’t do before because of my confirmation bias and how this act reinforced my world view that hate and prejudice is on the rise.

This act this fakery has a damaging effect, it now gives the far-right and Fox News an excuse to dismiss and diminish the fact that hate is on the rise and that people like Trump do embold and empower those who commit it

A Coast Guard lieutenant who was arrested last Friday on gun and drug charges is alleged to be a white supremacist who had a hit list that included prominent Democratic politicians as well as several journalists

“killer” car seats for sale

 

From Suffolk Trading Standards

This week the BBC reported on what was dubbed as “killer car seats” being sold on platforms such as Amazon and eBay.

The consumer group Which? have found that although the seats had been removed from sale in 2014 after tests showed they lacked the support needed to protect babies and toddlers, the seats had repeatedly re-appeared for sale on online marketplaces ever since.

The fabric seats, which can cost as little as £8, offer almost no protection in a crash and are illegal to use in the UK.

Approved seats carry a clear orange label with the codes ECE R44-03, ECE R44-04 or ECE R129 to indicate they have been put through EU safety testing and can therefore be legally sold on the UK market.

See the full BBC report here

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47253546

If you see a dangerous car seat being sold, or have purchased one that you have concerns about, please contact Trading Standards via the national Citizens Advice Consumer Service helpline on 03454 040506.

Theft of power tools – Ipswich

Image result for theft of power tools

There has been a recent increase in the number of power tools being stolen from both vehicles and sheds/garages.  This has affected both tradespeople and domestic power tool owners too.

For further advice on keeping your tools and shed/garages secure, please go tohttps://www.suffolk.police.uk/sites/suffolk/files/shedandgaragesecurity.pdf

 

Please remember these key points:

 

  • If you are unable to remove tools from your vehicle when not in use, invest in after market locks and alarms for the vehicle.
  • Park your vehicle within a secure compound covered by CCTV.  If you do have to leave your vehicle at home.  Park it as close to the house as possible with the rear/side doors against a wall or other vehicle.
  • Avoid storing power tools in your shed if possible. If you have to do this, ensure that shed is robust and in good condition with no windows.  Fit bars across the door to prevent it being prised open and use at least two closed shackle padlocks.  Make sure your back gate is locked and that the boundary to your garden is secure and at least 1.8m high.
  • If your tools are not registered at http://www.immobilise.com or otherwise identifiable, it is much easier for thieves to sell your stolen tools and also evade prosecution.
  • If you hear a vehicle alarm sounding or glass smashing, please take action.  Never put yourself in danger, but if you can look out of a window or check live CCTV safely, please do and then call police on 999 if you see a crime in progress.

Help us keep our communities safe.
