Like every other time cops are assaulted, the perps should be charged.
 
2021-01-25 7:51:12 PM  
I am going to go out on a limb and say that if it were 139 police dogs, you could get more of a social consensus behind the notion that the perps should be prosecuted. Because.... America!

Damn, five away from being a really gross situation.

I had to think for a bit. Good work.

There would have been bodies five deep on the Capitol Lawn, except they were white people.

Hah.

Apparently, rich white guys are allowed to assault y'all. It's only people like me that get charged.
 
2021-01-25 9:49:04 PM  
To be fair, those cops were clearly anti-fascists

Thoughts and prayers.

Even the police suffer more under white supremacy.

Law and Order

hahaha

So much for backing the blue.
 
2021-01-25 9:54:16 PM  
The cops that removed the barriers and welcomed them in, should be charged as accessories.

But but but......unity and stuff!

Where's Farks resident cop specialist to defend the cops from all the blue lives matters people?
 
2021-01-25 9:58:02 PM  
Well. Party of law and order surely will denounce that attack. Surely.

Any.

Yeah, but they were Deep State cops.

So basically, Blue Lives Matter only if they're facing the same direction.

"Blue Lives Matter" translates to "Black Lives Don't Matter."

It has nothing to do with the police.

Thank you, Capt. Obvious.

Remember: Blue lives only matter when they are making sure that Black lives don't.

Civil liability could be a biatch on this one (FB probably has the deepest pockets here)
The Coup Klux Klan organized this thing on social networks.  If it can be shown certain ppl in attendance planned violence online (against TOS), & FB/Gab/whatever did not adhere to their own TOS to take them down...  I smell several $M in civil  settlements.
 
2021-01-25 10:12:57 PM  
Oh my god, y'all are still talking about this?  That was like, so three weeks ago.

If you're gonna waste time stating the obvious then I am, too.

Every day an American cop spends off work after being beaten by a Republican is a day an American cop can't beat, taser, or shoot an innocent person.

expect capitol truthers to pop up around right after the 2022 elections and the dems lose because the gop has stalled any and all progress

From the WaPo article TFA links to regarding Flexi-Cuff Guy: "Munchel has not yet entered a plea. His attorney previously told a judge that he picked up the plastic zip ties or 'flexicuffs' to keep them from being misused."

Really hope they find receipts linked to him from Amazon or wherever proving that this is a load of horsesh*t. I'm sure it is, but seeing his response when they prove so in court will no doubt be hi-larious.

Yeah but somethings need to be said because others fight tooth and nail to avoid noticing the obvious.

Next time, they should evacuate the Democratic senators and let the Republican ones test out the "good guy with a gun" theory for themselves.

It was never about Blue Lives.

Are we sure they were assaulted? What were they wearing? Were they noncompliant? Did they have a weapon? We need to review the video footage to see if they were being aggressive.

I keep seeing that piss poor defense..."Oh, you see, my client only had them so a baddie couldn't do baddie things with them."

Well then shiatstain, why not just 'close' them? Pull the tag end all the way through so that they can't be used again.

Probably because police dogs are consistent in their morals, and actually have them.  Yes, I'm anthropomorphizing, but....dogs.

Even police dogs are just dogs. They love their masters unconditionally, and do what they're trained to do because their master wants them to. They can't help it.

It would be fantastic if a sociologist would create a study of the social media reactions to the capitol police throughout the ordeal.  It's shifted multiple times, but most of the rhetoric against them vanished when one of them died.

A few thousand; the number of Washington DC police that will remember this episode the next time people want to fark around.
