hmmm, maybe need to point out that the Babylon Bee is a satirical news site and that this Diehard scene is what they are referring too.

yeah, of course it was one of the bad guys, from one of the Die Hard crap movies... but the statement was in contradiction to the fake news headline, so it didn't make sense.. and it was a half hearted attempt at anti BLM humour.. so, basically as stupid as the fake headline..
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

yea, its been ****ing freezing cold, windy and wet ...
There weren't many chances for the poor bugger...

I can understand the locals being pissed for being turned away from helping... they should have all "just gone for a walk"...

Always seems to be 'about 1klm from home' these lost people are found.

Ah, Queensland, the state not to get sick in

https://www.news.com.au/national/queensland/news/major-qld-hospital-to-change-how-it-discharges-mentally-ill-after-patient-marched-out-in-hospital-gown/news-story/a276fe63756dc403a42f6396339ffb52
This policy is not new. After being cleaned up by a car at approx 9:30pm, whilst riding a motorcycle in 1995, I was taken to the Queen Elizabeth hospital for treatment. Cuts were cleaned, sutured and dressed, xrays taken of suspected cracked ribs. I was left to rest for 5 hours, to ensure I wasn’t going to go into shock (I guess). At four o’clock the following morning I was discharged wearing only a hospital gown (my clothes having been cut off me to access damaged bits of flesh). I wasn’t marched out the door by security, but then I know what I was doing when they told me I had to leave. We don’t know from the footage what this person was doing to warrant an escort.
We've waited 45 years to do this. Now our life will be complete!!

Whenever I've been to hospital, whether for an op, endoscopy, colonoscopy, broken bones, cracked noggin or other.....

They were always keen to see my arse go out the door.

I think, that's why they let me keep the gowns, they could actually see my big ol hairy blurter through the gown, well, GO OUT THE DOOR.

Hi,

What a sad avoidable tragedy.
Wish more people would realise how dangerous snatch straps can be.

That is sad indeed  :(

There's a big difference between kneeling down
