This text is now purple: The only thing in Camden left to loot is the Aquarium, and it's both closed and guarded by hippos.

The other problem is in Camden if you pick something up and throw it that generally qualifies as community service.

GanjSmokr: That's cool, but seriously.... how hard is it to turn your damned phone sideways before you start taking video??


You guys do a lot of complaining about vertical phone video here. Clearly you've never known someone with a serious case of carpal tunnel syndrome. Show a little compassion.

What I learned from this thread is that if I go to Camden, NJ there is a high probability that I will come away with a free sloth and lesser probability that I make my getaway on the back of a hippo.

big pig peaches: Animatronik: This is great but not all of the looters were protesters, so clearly there are also some other factors involved.

If a bunch of white antifa kids show up in Camden, they're going to get a well deserved beat down.


The white kids protesting aren't antifa. Those folks follow around nazis (out of uniform) and harass them. These are just opportunistic jackasses who deserve any criminal charges that come their way.

El Dudereno: JerseyTim: The cops are instigating the violence over and over. Sometimes intentionally, sometimes through unnecessary tactics.

Absolutely. It's almost as if the worst possible way to respond to protests against police brutality is with police brutality.


I view it as the opposite, black people know they are in a position of power over white cops  They know they have the upper hand every single time there is a police interaction these days. If you watch every single interaction these days with a conscientious cop, they hesitate way more and think a lot more before they act.

There was a video the other day of a black woman clocking a white police officer in the face... twice.. and you could see the look of helplessness on his face about what to do.  Then a black police officer came over and defended him by pretty much knocking her out.  If the white officer had hit her, it would be in the national news, even though she clocked him twice.  "Hey look... that white cop leveled that poor black lady.. he should have de-escalated it instead of hitting her!"

The above is what most of my cop friends are concerned about all the time.. some are begging to be paired up with a black cop in these situations.. but there aren't enough black cops to go around.

99.99% of cops are good, its that 0.01% that are bad and the police unions protects them.. just like the teachers union protects bad teachers, etc.etc..etc.

Part of them are Nazis trying to spark a full on race war.

Part of them are just opportunists taking advantage of the fact that the cops are all preoccupied with 'policing' predominately peaceful protests.

/If the cops are all surrounding, beating up, tear gassing, and running over peaceful protestors, they're NOT policing actual streets and actual crimes.  Which means people can take advantage of that.

It's a device designed to record video taken vertically and designed to playback video taken vertically. Why the fark should we turn it sideways?

Police have been feed this us verses them mentality for generations.  As long as they view the public as the enemy, they will respond with violence and repression.  You can bet there are lots of cops all over the country who are pissed that these officers worked with the community they are meant to serve.  But police should be servants of the public.  Even the public committing crimes.

The problem is the image of police as public servants is historically inaccurate.  They always have been a means of forcefully controlling to population.  They have always been an instrument of state sponsored terrorism against black communities.  From enforcing slavery, to Jim Crow, to the civil rights movement and the 'war on drugs' which has always been a war blacks and young liberals. It is in the very DNA of America's cops.   American Police have always been tasked with keeping blacks in their place, through violence or the threat of violence.  The difference now is that everyone can see it happening.  Before smart phones and social media, this would not be seen.  It would not even get reported.  But this can change, but it absolutely has to be the police who change.  They have to either stand down and retool their mindset or be abolished and replaced.  The only other option is increasingly violent uprisings and increasingly violent repression, leading to more violent uprising.  The question is, how many dead, wounded and unjustly imprisoned before we accept the need for ground up change in policing.
