Cops are terrified of guns. Armed protestors get a pass and unarmed protestors get the beat down. armed suspects are talked down from the edge while unarmed suspects are shot. They'll flat out shoot you if you admit to having a gun in your car.

Seems like they'd want fewer guns on the street.

But it's a bad slogan saying we have to give police more money!

Police are 40% of this town's budget, what the fark good does that so?

Absolutely. That way they can kill with impunity....

On a more serious note...the problem is in how cops are trained. They're trained to want to make it back home and not to protect and serve

If ordinary cops aren't willing to put themselves in harm's way to defend citizens--if most of what they do is cite minor infractions committed by the unarmed, and call for SWAT at the first sign of a real threat--they're just glorified meter maids.

You don't need to carry a gun for that.

I have a better idea since that one's impossible and most mass shooters don't have any kind of record.

How about don't sell guns to guys? Only 3 mass shootings since 1982 have been committed by women. (https://www.statista.com/statistics/476445/mass-shootings-in-the-us-by-shooter-s-gender/)

It'd probably stop a lot of domestic violence too however it would make the customer service desk at Kohl's the most dangerous job in America.

No, it was a Bider Patrol agent from the elite team. Local cops did nothing before that. The teachers who die did.

They'll pull a gun on you for trying to buckle your seatbelt last minute and they can't see your hands, but when it comes to saving the lives of 21 innocent people, they stand around with dicks in their hand.

This is America.

A Border Patrol agent from out of town who happened to be in the area responded and shot the guy, without backup, after the local cops ran away and left him alone with the kids for 40 minutes while locals pleaded with the cops to do something.

Sure he was shot by a law enforcement officer, after they let him tire himself out.

Inside the classroom where the gunman barricaded himself, teachers Eva Mireles and Irma Garcia appeared to be trying to protect their students when they were fatally shot, relatives said.

They put their bodies between the gunman and the students while the cops did nothing.  Spare me the wankstain edgelord take.

An outsider from the department did.  Meaning all $4 million the city spent on cops went to donuts and new underwear to replace the pairs they pissed.

It is a fact that most school shootings are by 18 and 19 year olds. Making the minimum gun-guying age 21 would solve a lot of problems. "But they can join the military at 18 - why can't they drink and smoke and buy guns legally?" Maybe raise the minimum age to join the military to 21 too? Oh that's right - then almost no one would ever join.

I heard recently that years ago the Supreme Court ruled that police do NOT have a constitutional duty to protect the public. If true, it explains a lot about what police have been doing lately. They don't HAVE to protect you, and they know it.

Same thing happened at the stoneman Douglas shooting. Resource officer assigned to the school hid outside while it happened.

But it kind of puts a spanner in the "good guy with a gun" theory.

I believe the cops were there for an hour, and did little other than get Their kids to safety. The Border Patrol sent a tactical unit and that's who killed the shooter.

Big part of that is the rhetoric surrounding gun rights.

Second Amendment ensures your right to open fire on the government whenever you feel aggrieved or oppressed?

What part of the government do you think symbolizes grievance or oppression to an 18- or 19-year-old loser with a firearm fetish?
 
2022-05-26 7:42:59 AM  
My favorite part was when the police on scene finally tried to kick down the door but needed someone with a key to give them access to a room they had allowed the perpetrator to go hog wild in on children for more than 20 minutes.

Instead of helping the kids, they're "bravely" assaulting the parents. Yet, there are people who don't understand that we need to strip police departments of armaments, for everyone, and begin from scratch with a new model of police officer.

I still say that a lot of problems would be solved if we gave every 13 year old boy unlimited Cheetos, an Xbox, 8 years of Xbox Gold and Call Of Honor Battlefield Fortnight. They'd be too busy being shiats online to be shiats IRL.

Apparently the cops even went so far as to tackle and actively prevent people from rushing the school themselves.

Can't have those uppity civilians doing their job for them and proving how useless the cops are.

/And someone seriously suggested that we should just trust the cops.

Not to justify cop abuses, but it helps to avoid trouble with them by remembering they meet a lot of bad and stupid people. That they can't be sure of your behavior until the stop is over and you either did or did not do something bad or stupid.
