But by all means, please continue to post in those secret facebook groups.

This worked out so well for the insurrectionist storming the Capitol.

I keep all my secrets on computers owned by a notorious data miner who's stratospheric profits relys on selling data to other companies and keeps the government out of his business by throwing people's secret data to law enforcement on the regular.

FTFAAnother post reportedly discussed criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement and featured a noose and the message "IF WE WANT TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE EVIL PEOPLE FEAR PUNISHMENT AGAIN."

The sentiment is accurate, but the subject of it is waaaaay off. Imprisoning or (please please please) executing some of the January 6 traitors would go a long way toward making evil people fear punishment again.

To be fair, racists aren't the smartest people.  And if it weren't this petard, it would certainly be another petard.  Either way, they're hoisted.

Technically they use the data themselves to sell targeted ads.

There's plenty of other companies though that don't sell advertising so they'll sell your location, purchases, browsing records, etc.

Then big companies which buy all those and aggregate them into profiles and sell them to anyone with cash.

Facebook probably buys those and mashes it all into the insane amount of data they already have.

Out of control.

That's about the only thing I can figure. You'd think that at some point someone would pull him aside and say, "Look, Mark, as your friend I just have to tell you, you look like a f*cking freak show. You're a goddamn billionaire, hire a f*cking personal stylist." But if he does what Donald Trump does and only surrounds himself with sycophantic yes-men who think if they kiss his ass enough he'll trickle down on them he probably doesn't have any real friends.

They don't care. They feel justified. That's why they're so dangerous. That's why something like Jan 6th appealed to them.

There is an analog precedence for that:
"In 1979, Stallworth noticed a classified ad in the local paper seeking members to start a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in the city. He responded to the posting via mail to a P.O. box, and provided them an address and phone number.
A Klan member phoned Stallworth, who then posed as a racist white man ... During the conversation, he learned that the man founding the new chapter was a soldier at nearby Fort Carson.
Stallworth arranged to meet the man at a local bar and sent a white undercover narcotics officer to stand in for him at the meeting, wired to record any conversations."

As long as racists are stupidly bold enough to advertise then they'll continue being infiltrated & exposed. They bring it on themselves. As the panel from Preacher asks, "Why is it the greatest champions of the white race turn out to be the worst examples of it?"

I think that the Black Panthers used to do that. Show up with guns and keep an eye on the police to make sure no abuses occurred.

Offenders should get a dishonorable discharge, not for what they said but because they were naive and stupid enough to think they could get away with what they said.

2021-04-17 10:34:52 AM  
What's even funnier is the anti-police rhetoric on this website. I was LEO for 3 years and have insight into how extremism could be curbed off. I've tried on multiple occasions to give my educated opinion. The responses from a good majority of this website? "Pig." "All cops are bad."

You guys criticize law enforcement for envisioning themselves as the punisher and then you turn around and call for the January 6th capitol rioters to be shot. That's the exact same thing those punisher wannabe farks say. There's no difference.

The fark do I know though.

thin blue line mentality is largely responsible for the current state of affairs.

law enforcement officers covering for the lies and law-breaking of fellow law enforcement officers tends to erode confidence and trust.

add to that a seeming inability to not brutalize every minority encountered and here we are.

how many instances of misconduct did you report when you were an leo?

I reported zero instances of law enforcement misconduct when I was an officer. Do you know why? Because I saw zero instances of officer misconduct. You guys think that every single one of us are evil people. Most officers go their entire careers without firing a single shot or even deploying their taser.

You can't sit there and do the exact same thing you are against. It takes away your credibility and makes your cause pointless.

You're doing the exact same thing the punisher wannabes do. The only difference between you and them is they have a gun.

That's not the same thing, at all.  In one instance, the cops want to be the extra-judicial executioner.  In the other, people want a trial and punishment commensurate with the crime.

A heck of a lot of non LEO Americans have guns. That is part of the problem is that many police departments (or training programs therein) have established the people they serve as potential enemy combatants and their anxiety about those enemies totally justifies if they shiat themselves into shooting one of us.

The problem with your contributions is not necessarily that you were one of them but rather likely that you are going to suggest the police fix themselves since so far in this thread you have only shared that we non-LEO are all just meanies who do not understand. People cannot objectively police their own bad behavior especially when the system is reinforcing them toward that behavior. It is actually pretty unfair to expect the individuals to sort that out.

i see police use their sirens to run red lights on the regular.
not to get to crimes just to get thru lights.
small, yes, but it erodes trust.

during protests here in l.a. the cops brutalized the peaceful protesters while completely ignoring the looters and vandals. it's hard not to think they care more about people calling out their shiatty behavior than they do about laws they are supposed to be enforcing.

we need to stop hiring racist halfwit thugs and we need a way to weed out the bad apples we constantly hear about who never suffer consequences for their shiatty behavior until they're filmed murdering someone for selling loose cigarettes.

the us vs them isn't only coming from one side.
