The_Sponge: And if all cops are bastards, then I hope you guys "keep it real" and never call 911 for a situation that would usually call for law enforcement.


No, I think the cops are supposed to do their jobs, like they swore they would do.

Hmmmm, I went to their official website and did a search for "Marx" and "Marxism" and there were zero results. So, much like your orange menace, you're full of shiat.

That's really the point of the acronym.

If you are enabling a system which murders unarmed black men, you are part of the problem and you should be pushing for whatever it takes to end that perception.

gar1013: 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?


Don't like hops?  Then don't drink *those styles of beer that are highly-hopped*.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know  that if you order and IPA, the flavor is going to be hop-forward.  And, many craft breweries put the hop level (in IBUs) right on the goddamn label, so it's pretty easy to pick a beer that you'll likely enjoy.  But you go on and keep railing against "overhopping" as if it isn't an easily-avoided non-issue.

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

Suck it.  I love garlic.  I'll use as much of it as I want.  Who cares how much "they" use in "places like Italy".  There are plenty of cuisines which historically use lots more garlic than Italy.  Regions in India and China come to mind.

One thing the bootlickers here need to realize is that the SCOTUS has ruled that police have no obligation to protect people. How do they resolve this with their claims that they are so badly needed, yet are under no obligation to meet said needs?

The system and the profession is badly broken and needs to be dismantled and rebuilt from the bottom up.

Must have missed the report where the one hero cop in the Seattle PD was opposing the brutality, harassment, and violence perpetrated by their colleagues, denouncing the systemic racism, and calling for those officers to be removed and prosecuted. Loudly, publicly and transparently. Refusing to engage in unconstitutional activities and protecting any peaceful protestors with their voice and body.

I'll wait.

You must understand, racists are not intelligent people.

Agreed.  And thankfully, I'm not racist.

Yeah. You are.


Mention one racist thing I posted in this thread.  And a pic that points out media hypocrisy doesn't count.

Was that shooter an agent of the state, given qualified immunity, and immediately defended by... anyone?

Did people immediately start digging into the child's past to figure out why he probably deserved to get shot?

No, but it was probably a hate crime.


If there's any evidence of that, I'm sure it will be prosecuted as such.

But so what? People commit all kinds of hate crimes all the time and it usually makes some kind of news.

Are you upset that there aren't massive protests against that guy? They got him. He'll probably go to prison for a long time.

Nobody was even sure that George Floyd's murderers would even be arrested after they were recorded in the act. Lots of people still think they should go free, because they think cops should literally get away with anything.

I'm with you on that...they should not be let free.

KidKorporate: ace in your face: KidKorporate: Hey let's try it.  No cops, no courts, no jails.  The situation will sort itself out eventually, but probably not in the manner you envisioned.

It's almost like that's not actually the solution being proposed and this is just the saddest strawman argument I ever saw

/if you only had a brain

I think you misunderstand. I fully acknowledge that all those systems are corrupt, however they won't be fixed by merely defunding or reallocating money.


Fire 'em all and make 'em re-apply for the position.
