New-Liverpool-home-shirt

Liverpool will wear a new home kit next season after the Premier League leaders revealed their new look on Thursday evening.

Unsurprisingly, the club have opted for red – as they have done ever since 1896 after dressing in blue for the first four years of their existence. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, though, will be forced to stand between the sticks dressed in a purple jersey.

Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Touré were all present at the unveiling of the kit at an event in Liverpool city centre that was simultaneously broadcast on their website.

Steven Gerrard, the club capatin, described the kit as “classic”.

“I have a great sense of pride every time I pull on a Liverpool shirt,” Gerrard said. “This shirt feels like a Liverpool classic and helps me remember the greats who played before us.”

Police Brutality Caught on Camera Cape Town

An incident of police brutality in Cape Town , Kensington Area in South Africa was released on Facebook today. The video shows a man being arrested by police and security guards. Despite their numbers, they we unable to subdue the man being arrested who didn’t seem to be showing too much resistance.

It is unclear what the man was being arrested for but the footage shows how he was man handled, stripped naked and then assaulted. The individual who was filming the event from their mobile phone tried to intervene by shouting through her office window, questioning the police officer in concern about how they were handling the suspect. The policeman then allegedly threatened her by pointing to the back of his police van and starting making way towards her location. We do know that one person was arrested for intervening, throughout the video you hear people asking “Nicole” to stop intervening however she took a brave stand against police brutality and this is a perfect example of what we as citizens should be doing.

Cape Town has a very bad record of police brutality and there has been many incidents like these in the past. I am desperately trying to get hold of the person who filmed this for an interview, stay tuned.
