Thread: US protests against police violence

    So strange considering not a single police officer under Donald Trump's control has killed anyone.

    Sticks and stones take a toll on me but they aren't your strongest weaponry
    You can take your shots but you'd best prepare, I can see smoke rising in the air
    Every move has a counteract, to turn the tides with a planned attack
    You push me down and the rest will rise but first I'm singing a battle cry

    What's strange is that, after two decades of constantly being shown—on a daily basis—how dumb you are, you still seem to think you're clever.

    For someone who hates socialism, he sure does seem to enjoy being publicly owned.

    Not my joke but come on, it's perfect.

    *shrug* I guess it's the closest thing to love and recognition some people ever get to experience.

    A police force’s entire Emergency Response Team has resigned in disgust after two of their colleagues were suspended for shoving a 75 year-old peace activist onto a concrete sidewalk.

    [...]

    Announcing the dramatic move, Buffalo Police Benevolent Association President John Evans told the Investigative Post: ‘Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders.’

    Would be fascinated to see what orders they've been given, and who gave them.

    Give him time, I have no doubt thats a fantasy you two share. Even as he hides behind the Whitehouse's babygate. He started small, going after a small peaceful protest and a church.

    Good riddance if that's their attitude.

    Sadly, they didn't resign from the police, just whatever tag team they were part of.

    Good police officers show what they think about the few violent "bad apples" amongst them:

    Exceptional brutality, but also exceptional public support:

    Remember when those same Texan politicians were paranoid about Obama sending troops to Texas in the Jade Helm exercises? I wonder what changed.

    At this point, it may be more appropriate to talk about "a few good apples":

    Someone living the resident fascist's wet dream of running over a black protester:

    I'm uneasy about where this could lead.
    The river? Come on, who the fuck puts up statues of slave traders?

    I mean, the British state does, obv. But we shouldn't encourage them.

    The statue had no place in 2020 UK. It needed to go.

    I don't think anyone could make a reasonable case for it to remain standing.

    But not like that. Do it within the frickin' law, mmm'k.

    This might help lewk understand why his previous line of questions was idiotic bullshit. Shared by my home city a few minutes ago. Or he could miss the point entirely, again.

    Slavery was evil. The statue was (I believe) for his major charitable works which were good, not the slavery, but yeah I agree that even with the philanthropy he had no place in 21st century Britain. There's a right and wrong way for it to go, but its not really a major concern and I'm not sad to see it gone.

    This whole thread is sad.

    I wonder if some people in that survey mistakenly think the National Guard is "military"?
