I love it when police try to put on the friendly face with community policing PR campaigns despite being have a acrimonious history with the public they should serve.

If police are going to circle wagons around their blue lines PR won't help.

It didn't look like excessive force was being used in a single one of the pictures linked in the article.

Hilarious, I love it.

To be fair, it's hard to tell whether some of these are actually as bad as they appear without context.

To also be fair, there's enough of these that clearly are as bad as they appear that the others don't even matter.

Yeah, everyone one of those cops made sure to yell "stop resisting" before giving in to their roid rage.

Define "bad decisions" asshat.

We live in a world where society now answers to the police.  Yes, society at large.

Where's the tweet about how the police in New York City chased a boy right through the park, in a case of mistaken identity? They put a bullet in his heart.

Somehow I find myself reading an article on CHINESE STUDENTS IN AUSTRALIA ARE SPIES!!!

And I'm all "huh?". Then I scroll up and see it's tacked on to the end of the NYPD Twitter article. But the Quartz link said I had clicked on the CHINESE SPIES!!! article. WTF? This happen to anyone else?

Phew. For a moment I thought it might have been China's fault. China's fault for abusing Australia's welcoming immigration policy and generous multicultural ways. But luckily it's White People's fault.

"Australia is now ramping up its counter-intelligence program. But one reason there are so many Chinese spies in Australian universities might be that the schools haven't created welcoming communitiesfor visiting international students, said the Herald report."

Can't they club someone like Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Tom Morello, or Al Franken for once? If you're gonna whack the whinier side of the liberal spectrum, think big!

All of those people can afford good lawyers. A cop might have to answer, however indirectly, for his actions if he did that.

Just because someone wants more government does not mean they want corrupt right wing thuggish government. Accountability and respect of rights is what left wing people believe in. That applies to the police. If they are accountable and respect the rights of everyone, there is nothing wrong with more of them.

But instead, he's dressed in black, with his faced covered, just like a real patriot.  BTW, which "protest" group wears black?

The kind that is already afraid of police reprisal. Yet feels strongly enough to still protest.
 
2014-04-22 11:04:42 PM  
The problem with these protests is that nobody is armed except the police.

HA!!!

OWS was a complete failure... at least for those doing the so-called occupying.
For the rest of us who actually work for what we have, it was a splendid dish of meat, followed by something else made from animal flesh for dessert. Perhaps a bacon/chocolate flour-less tart, or a chicken cheese cake. Or maybe...oh I think I have confused these people for PETA.

Or have I?

It's not legal to wear a disguise in public and that's an anti-Klan law so any pissant douchebag that wants to break it is looking for a billy club shampoo. If they could split some lips and knock out some teeth while they're at it all the better. Of course its a good law when applied to kluckers but a terrible injustice when the left wingers are trashing a city like the battle in Seattle or occupy wall street. Funny how laws apply to everyone though.

Same misguided hypocritical jibberish. I think that's where I went awry.
