Mn police:. We're running low on CS gas.
Supply cop:. Use this mustard gas. They'll never know the difference.
Mn police: say, would you happen to have any grey poupon gas?
Supply cop: but of course.

So...the rate of serious injuries over the summer, including head and neck shots, was disproportionately high? Gee, I wonder why?

Anyone who says there isn't a serious, systemic racism problem in the US is a farking idiot.

If the insurrectionists had been black and were hunting down the VP, McConnell, Cruz, Hawley, and McCarthy, Republicans would be demanding heads on pikes right now.

Will it matter to municipalities when they get called into a conference with their Governor and the President?

I have a feeling that people will be upset about the speed of progress, given the sanctity of the Filibuster.

Biden's solution will mirror what Obama's response would have been; use the power of his office to help build bridges.

Unless he acts like a fark, that is also possible. Out of character, but also possible.

There was a cop thread earlier today about a police car that zoomed through a crowd of people,  and a handful of Farkers got their stink all up in that thread with "NoT AlL CoPs," and "wElL wHaT ElSe aRe ThEy SuPpOsEd tO Do?!"

I just want to reiterate: fark the police, and fark you if you think thoroughly dismantling this crooked institution and replacing it with something more democratic and community driven is too radical.

I will concede that buying a Tesla is not the worst example of police excess... But it's still annoying that they're buying one in a state where school teachers notoriously have to buy their own supplies.

Farking this. Police budgets are massively overblown, way too many sensitive responsibilities (such as 'responding to any kind of mental health crisis' or 'anything that requires deescalation') are piled on the shoulders of people who are not properly trained to handle them, and there are nowhere near enough resources going to address the actual root causes of crime (ie poverty, poor treatment of ex-cons, and a lack of a social safety net in general).

Because police departments (and the cities who budget them) are known for thinking long-term with their equipment purchases? You had to know this wasn't a great argument.

So your ok with racism if they have less equipment?

How about we say NO to ALL RACISM instead?

The fact that it can be shown that these police took no effort to minimise the damage of these weapons, rather using them specifically with the intend of causing damage, shuld be a criminal indictment on these pigs.  Excessive force at the least.

I mean I understand the feelings of superiority and shield of position, but is that all we can be? Do we all have to be racist as well as assholes? Can we be non-racist and non-assholes?

And why do we all have to be at each other as well? We basically hate each other as much as some of us hate other ethnic groups, but just not with overwhelming racism, just everyday hate.

Maybe we can just not be so terrible to everyone, including ourselves?

Nice to dream.

Speaking as a white gay man, those other whites started it. I'd be happy to be less terrible to people but they have to stop being terrible to me first--otherwise, this is essentially the same call for "unity" the Repuicans are pushing.

The city of Fairfield purchased four Ford Police Interceptor all-wheel drive utility vehicles earlier this month at a price tag of $105,960. That price includes a base cost of $25,000 per vehicle, plus $5,000 for a specialized police package that includes protective screens and mounts for laptops. They will replace four Crown Victoria cruisers with more than 100,000 miles on each of them.

That is from 2013 so if that's a Three it's comparable

That's great. Just lead the tesla cop on a high speed highway chase for 20 miles. Teslas are fast but when they sustain high speeds the batteries drain quick, and I seriously doubt the tesla cop is always fully charge. 20 miles into a chase and 50 miles gone from the battery, he'll have to disengage to go save enough juice to go back and recharge.
