    Now, these degenerate enforcers of the law may appear to be racist reprobates with nothing but hatred and filth in their hearts, but they are no doubt consummate professionals that deserve the public's support, respect and admiration.

    Hey if you don't want me positing Breitbart news links would you stop posting NPR ones?

    You need to learn the difference between bias and credibility. Hint: it's quite possible to be biased while doing solid journalism (see the Economist). Breitbart's problem isn't its bias; it's the fact it's racist trash.

    So what right wing biased sources do you think should be used Loki?

    The bad apples can ruin police dept. reputations and shatter public trust. It's not surprising that some cops are racist haters, but it is a shock to see they posted it publicly on social media and presumed there would be no backlash.

    Sad to say that my hometown was one of the police depts. on the list. Most everyone already knew we have some 'bad apples', but it's good to get it out in the open and get the attention of the mayor and police chief. (Policy updates and better screening for new recruits, etc.) But it's probably a drop in the bucket, since we have a real problem with bigotry as a cultural 'norm'.


    Lewk, plainviewproject.org is the source of the study, NPR is just reporting on it.

    WSJ is generally credible. The Economist is right-wing economically. Heritage used to be credible before it was overrun by Trumpists. Reason is usually solid.

    The story was also covered by Fox News affiliates.

    Instead of criticizing the initial news link, you should have taken the time to actually *read* the underlying study/project and comment about *that*.

    You were so quick to diss "liberal media" that you exposed your own right-wing conservative bias.
