oh know...cops who are offended will only have 10's of thousands of other kinds of beers to choose from...this is an outrage.

Dempster wrote, "if it means someone won't buy my beer anymore, good. The beer was not created for them. I make my beer for folks who are actively anti-racist, anti-Trump, anti-fascist and pro-equality."

Damn I don't drink beer but I may have to find some to support this kind of stand.

I want my beer to generate opinions, not come with its own.
 
2020-08-14 1:32:46 PM  
I had heard it is as "All Cops are Bad", but either way, the message is true.

As has been said many times before: There are good cops and bad cops, the problem is that bad cops look like good cops until its too late.  So, you must assume they are all bad until they prove otherwise.

Could just be a good stout.

Yes, all cops are bad. Or biatches. Or bastards. Or racist scrotum-walkers. Whatever. They all suck because they all allow their blue line bullshiat to keep the evil rampant.

There are no good cops. Not in this country.
 
2020-08-14 1:33:26 PM  
There are plenty of other shiatty over-hopped craft brews to drink, so whatever.

Seriously, try some good beer from foreign countries, and then try your local craft brewery. Notice how many of the local people think the hops level needs to be turned to 11?

It's like garlic. People in the US overuse it to obscene levels compared to places like Italy.

No it's not. When cops retaliate against cops that call out the injustices committed by other cops such that the whistleblower is either forced to quit or become complicit in the injustices it means All Cops Are Bad. Systemic racism is endemic to the police culture whether they want to admit to it or not, and needs to end.

Refer to the old adage 'one bad apple spoils the bunch'.
And for further edification, Bad Apple Proverbs

No, it really isn't. American style police forces are part of a fascist organization. Police are not only allowed but encouraged and trained to lie as an example. Even if in your private life you're a decent person when you put that uniform on and follow the rules of the organization you become someone who deprives people of life and liberty without repercussions. So yes, All Cops Are Bad.

2020-08-14 1:44:29 PM  
I tend to give a hallpass to the older seemingly mellow cops but I can't stand the skinhead ex-mil cops with Punisher tats and an agressive "come at me, bro" attitude in every situation. I suppose I should quit giving the former a pass since they seem perfectly fine with the latter.

I know several. Related to a couple, and I love them.

But they're still bastards. They're active participants in a deeply broken system and they're not trying to fix it.

Sensitive right-wing snowflakes trying to invoke their Republican cancel-culture again.

this sets up an interesting dilemma.  if people want Trump arrested and brought to justice for his crimes, that would require the police.  if all cops are bastards and they are part of an evil in the country, how will Trump get arrested for his crimes?

Just because the cops do some things right sometimes, doesn't mean they are right all the time.
They have to do things right sometimes, or nobody would support them at all.

Petey4335: FLMountainMan: Sounds like I know which brewery to burglarize in Seattle.

The joke was intended either way you want it.  You can clutch your pearls and admire my brave statement that the fascist corrupt cops would intentionally let this place burn to the ground, or you can smugly cheer at the idea that cops wouldn't bother to do their damn hob and let the owner get what he deserves.  I don't care either way.  Your opinion isn't going to change.

Now, if I were to say that I know the brewery to walk into while open carrying, order a pint of ACAB beer and piss all over the place as I did it, you might infer that I'm making a statement that police are a necessary evil and that you'd be better off trying to make realistic changes (like making them easier to fire (i.e., abolish police unions), paying them more to attract better candidates, and focus on recruiting more minorities) than demonizing and defunding them so that the quality of officer deteriorates.

Getting rid of all police is stupid and unrealistic and usually said by people who never have a need for their services.

That's exactly what it is. An imperial stout - original recipe provided by Weathered Souls. Couple of the local riffs I've had are outstanding.

Bravo to them, but I prefer Saison style beers. I feel hops have become a crutch. Just add an ass load of hops to any shiatty beer, and you can sell it. Hard pass.

All cops don't have to be bastards. It just happens that they currently are.

It's no great stretch to imagine current systems being replaced in function and employing people that aren't bastards.

Did you really think you had some kind of clever *gotcha* there?

t = (1/n [h]) * 1/s

t = trustworthiness of the cop
n = diameter of their neck
h = length of their hair
s = number of skull decals/tats/patches

Hard to calculate while pulling over AND emptying your beer out the window, but it's a sound forumla.
 
2020-08-14 1:55:24 PM  
I support the police.  That said having been a cop I can honestly say that the best thing you can do to support the police is to remove the bottom third of officers who are racist, violate people's rights, or who fail to live up to the moral obligations that we deserve from police.

By an amazing coincidence these also tend to be the dumbest guys in every department, who screw up other officers' investigations, sexually harasse the female staff, and escalate routine calls into dangerous confrontations for mot just the public, but also all the other cops.

And attacking them on Fark isn't going to get us to your cop-free nirvana either?  So again - what specific ideas do you have to reform the system?  I think step one is to prohibit unionized law enforcement, or bar certain employment protections in union contracts.
