They treat you like a dog now and would like to treat you worse.
 
2021-01-13 9:25:29 AM  
Treat you better than I would at this point. On second thought probably about the same. I want charges to stick, not you get off on a technicality.
 
2021-01-13 9:27:48 AM  
Also they took away hus cell phone? Animals! How is he supposed to play Candy Crush and Angry Birds?
 
2021-01-13 9:28:49 AM  
Guy's lucky.  If they treated him like the subhuman trash he is he'd be laying in a pool of his own piss and blood with a fractured skull.

$20 this guy was jerking off while watching police beat BLM protesters and treat them like animals..

I hope this will start a dialog on fixing the long overdue problem of systemic idiotism.

Remember when we heard that story about how they'd cuff someone black with their hands behind their back and put them in the back of that transport van and then go for a wild ride around town? The victims would of course be injured and I think one of them died or had a brain injury, which is how it finally made it into an article, although the practice I'm sure never got stopped.

I think it was NY but I don't remember.

Anyway, what did this white guy say again? I got distracted with remembering...

So, do you think he still "backs the blue"?

Or, was it more you were not so much pro-cop as anti-black?
 
2021-01-13 10:19:56 AM  
He and all the other traitors are lucky their brains aren't being mopped up off the floor of the Capitol.
 
2021-01-13 10:19:56 AM  
I've been seeing this a lot ever since last weeks armed Republican Terrorist insurrection...not very thinly veiled statements basically saying "I'm confused, they're treating us like the blacks!"

Literally one asshole said "they're shooting at us, they're supposed to be shooting at BLM."

Irredeemable human garbage, the lot of them.

They treated you as suspects in an attack on the US capitol.  This involves being detained, and yes, removal of cell phones.  That's generally how it goes...
 
2021-01-13 10:28:50 AM  
Hope he has his own plane.  He might be even more upset if he put on the no fly list.
 
2021-01-13 10:29:05 AM  
The fact that you're able to complain shows that you're not a black man.

It saddens me this chuckle f*ck lives in the same city as I.

It saddens me that there's far more people here than you'd think that support Der Cheeto.

Well maybe when you get out you can be an advocate for justice/prison reform there sparky. Kinda shocking you found out they don't have a beginner section that gets you cookies and let's you keep your phone. And your phone is probably evidence in an active investigation right now.
 
2021-01-13 10:32:42 AM  
Just remember: Protesters in a park where they're legally permitted to be, yelling for equal and just treatment by police regardless of skin color, deserve to be tear gassed, shot with beanbags/rubber bullets, and beaten if trump wants a photo op in front of a church. Because, of course, those protesters spray painted things like "BLM" and "ACAB" on public property and threw a water bottle at a cop (allegedly).

But a riotous mob that is expressly there for sedition/insurrection, that breached barriers to places they weren't allowed to be, who broke and stole public property in the Capitol, who literally murdered a cop, they deserve to be treated not just with basic human dignity, but as superiors to all of you in the servant class.

I wonder what the difference is...

At the detention center, Leary claimed to see a woman crying after not being allowed to translate for her Russian-speaking mother. Both women have been charged with violating curfew and unlawful entry. Newsweek has contacted Capitol Police for comment on Leary's allegations.

"Good morning Capitol Police, this is Newsweek. Was there a woman crying in jail last week?"

That's exactly what every "Blue Lives Matter" sign and "Thin Blue Line" flag are about.  What they have always been about.

They were never about supporting the police, and always about rejecting BLM and expressing racist sentiment toward Black people.

They are the new preferred expression of racism for racists who want plausible deniability, now that nobody anymore buys the story that that Confederate flag is really about southern heritage.

The whole article is fascinating, but the last 2 paragraphs are just terrifying from a humanity perspective.

It never fails to surprise me thst people who have never had any kind of interaction with the criminal justice system are stunned at how roughly people get treated inside the criminal justice system.

I have not been on the receiving end of the criminal justice system. I have done some work inside prisons and that by itself is oppressive.

Welcome to every day for black folks. Not for rioting. Merely for existing. Maybe now some of them will get it.

A New York construction company owner who was arrested during the Capitol riot in Washington, D.C. on January 6 has criticized police, saying they treated protesters "like animals."

Did you stop to think it's because you ACTED like deranged animals?  Protestors treated Capitol Police like human pinatas.  What the fark did you expect?

Being a part of a group that was beating, tasing, and killing cops guaranteed that you were not going to get favorable treatment down at the station.

FTFAThe Trump supporter told the news wire on Monday that he doesn't trust mainstream media and prefers Infowars, the far-right conspiracy site run by Alex Jones.

Hol' up guys... if the president can be impeached for throwing a match on all this, then *if* Alex Jones made the same claims, can Alex also be arrested?
