Everyone involved in that should be fired.

dr_blasto: Everyone involved in that should be fired.


As well as every single one of their commanding officers for allowing it to happen.

Huh.  I thought that was the gay leather pride flag.

Joseph Wambaugh was the author who first described the Thin Blue Line as the line of honest cops that all the bad cops hide behind.
 
2021-04-12 4:27:21 PM  
you can't reform this
 
2021-04-12 4:28:08 PM  
And if your officer is incapable of differentiating between his Taser and his service weapon he should be carrying neither.
 
2021-04-12 4:28:31 PM  
It's not a flag, it's a target. They practice only shooting the black parts.
 
2021-04-12 4:29:04 PM  
My favorite police officer is, "officer down!"
 
2021-04-12 4:29:33 PM  
What, exactly, is the thin blue line flag supposed to stand for?

The only thing it seems to stand for is the right of police officers to arbitrarily execute people.

Maybe they should try this one by Dread Scott:

For some reason police aren't allowing local Minneapolis media in to attend the press conference.

Your not helping.   Serious there needs to be a law at minimum requiting prior approval by the city council to fly any flag out outside a police station other than the US flag and the flag of state on which the police station is located, the city flag if one exists would also be permissible.

I would prefer they banned from doing so otherwise save for something like the POW-MIA flag.

I saw a bit of the press conference today and the guy giving it was awful, looked like he wanted to cry and run away, and had zero factual answers.

It was disgusting. I turned it off before I threw up.

Yeah that won't go over well at all. MN people tend to trust MPR & the Strib

I really want to believe not all cops are bastards. Every one of these kinds of stories makes it harder and harder for me to believe that is true.
