He still needs to resign.
And he needs to be blacklisted from working with any police force ever again.
 
2020-06-02 7:12:51 PM  
What does his original comment even mean? Does he think looters went back in time and knelt on his neck?

Wut?
 
2020-06-02 7:13:16 PM  
What the goddamn fark is wrong with you, you f*cking pig? Looters didn't kill him. F*ck you.
 
2020-06-02 7:14:36 PM  
I think he just farked up and didn't really mean it. I still give the LAPD about a 3 out of 10 for their response Friday-sunday and say 4/10 for yesterday and today

It was so blindingly incoherent I wonder if it was an honest misspeak

and this mindset is the exact reason why this is happening.

LAPD hasn't learned a damned thing since 1992.

Not exactly. I think what he said was that possibility couldn't be ruled out.

When are you 🐑 going to hear the police? They most positively feel empowered to kill people. justified. And, it's our own fault.  We should have never lynched people. and we should start holding the cops accountable when they kill people. I don't mean jail. I mean we need to question, thoroughly, what happened. We need to stop asking what the suspect did. And ask did the cop actually need to kill the suspect. We can't assume it was needed. Which is what we are currently doing.

Or we're just racist scum.

So which is it Karen.

His comment didn't make any sense...

But what possible thing could he have been trying to communicate?!?

He was clearly trying to say that protests were somehow the problem.

How could they? Too many people in society are unquestioning boot licks or racist. Or both. Need Vin of that.

Who the fark cares? He was desperate to put responsibility for police murdering black people on the heads of black people.  He did this because he is a violent racist POS. Why do you feel compelled to make excuses for his blatant bigotry?

At first I thought he meant the cop's life was in the hands of the mob as some sort of Zap Brannigan plan to save himself

Well, it's really quite simple. Chauvin knew that by kneeling on Floyd's neck, it would trigger the protesters something fierce, and looters would take advantage of that, and so he just HAD to kneel on Floyd's neck to make that happen so he wouldn't be wrong.

See? Pretty simple. Cop math.

Moore said at a late-afternoon news conference that about 700 people were arrested Sunday during mass protests over Floyd's death and police brutality. He noted that about 10% of those arrests were for burglary or looting, saying, "We didn't have protests last night, we had criminal acts.''

So 70 arrested for burglary and looting. What were the other 630 charged with?

Unlawful assembly and failure to disperse would be my guess.

not if you subscribe to a linear interpretation of Time.

The head cop is confused. Which explains why the other cops were watching the peaceful protestors, and not near the looters.

He shouldn't even be speaking off the cuff, if he knows what's good for him. The fact that he does speaks volumes, and the fact that he farked up like that speaks a whole lot more. If we got a hint of his own personal attitude, and if he can't do the job without his own personal attitude interfering, he shouldn't be in a position of such responsibility.

Yeah, he's under pressure, but that comes with the damn territory.

100% inexcusable to say that even in error.

it's obvious that he thinks the police hold no culpability in even the most obvious of brutalities.

adios pendejo.

No, he expects this behavior from blah people. If they weren't so uppity, we wouldn't have to kill people to arrest them.

It's classic abuse behavior/bully behavior.

Police unions fight cities for the money to send cops to this utter piece of human garbage as part of their training.

The fact that Dave Grossman is successful saying the morally reprehensible things he says is more surreal to me than seeing Donald Trump elected president.

Wait a minute, I just saw it on the news. At first he, said Floyd's death was on their hands. Then, when he came back a few minutes later, he apologized for saying Floyd's blood was on their hands.

Mistakes like that are even more revealing. F*ck that guy.

Hay gun nuts:
This right here:
"Are you prepared to kill somebody?" he asks me and the small group of "armed citizens" who've paid $90 or more to see him. "If you cannot answer that question, you should not be carrying a gun."

This puts a massive  hole in the native that you don't want to kill people.

So maybe let's stop with that bold face lie.


Now go oil you metal cocks.

You have to understand the police mentality.  They are like husbands beating who beat their wives.  (The police tend to be abusive to their partners at a much higher rate than normal). But it is always the victim's fault.  If the cops murder someone, it's the victim's fault for getting killed.  Or it's the violent rioters fault for creating situations where police have to attack peacefully protestors.  Or it's the media's fault for creating a hostile environment for police.
But the poor innocent police are never responsible for their actions.

He also said, after arresting 700 people only 10% of whom were arrested for looting and burglary, that "We didn't have protests last night, we had criminal acts.''

They arrested 90% of people for protesting, but the 10% make that irrelevant.

Lying choad.

When a derper makes a claim that fits their prejudice just so, the odds of it being true are very, very low.

Michael Moore should sue Michel Moore for slander.  Take it to a jury trial, and it will be the first time a civil court decision will be both plaintiff, and defendant are found guilty, and sentenced to the death penalty.  Because those arguments will for sure be that insane.
