That's what this all boils down to.

"I'm not gonna go in there and get shot. Let somebody else do it."

Bunch of useless donut munching cowards who think a police badge is just something you wear to get out of paying speeding tickets, paying parking tickets, and paying for coffee.

So they stand around like f*ing fenceposts doing nothing but getting in the damned way.

That's your job, you pansies. Get the hell out of the force if you won't do your job. You had one thing, I guess you guys thought that one thing was papering the town with tickets and not protecting the public.

What about the 12 minutes the gunman spent outside the school shooting after crashing the car he was driving?
Uvalde is a town of around 16,000 with a whopping square miles of 7.  What in the ever living fark were these guys doing?

On another note:

Vanessa Croix: We've heard that some law enforcement officers actually went into [the] school to get their kids out. Can you talk about that?

Lt. Christopher Olivarez: Right, so what we do know Vanessa right now that there was some police officers [and] families trying to get their children out of the school because it was an active shooter situation right now.
It's a terrible situation right now. And, of course, just as we mentioned the loss of life, it's just terrible, it's a terrible tragedy now that took place, but again we've got to keep acknowledging those brave men and women that actually were there on scene that met the suspect, and of course, we know that they were met with gunfire. Some of them were shot. But at the end of this, the suspect was shot and is now deceased. The threat is now neutralized.

Didn't a Resource Officer at Parkland get fired for not engaging?

I'm concentrating on the narratives from the police -- and the non-narratives from Faux New -- on what happened. The incompetence is Columbine-level, and only because they didn't know rapid response was better than siege.

"Cops going in and getting their kids while other parents find out their kids are dead" and "Cops arresting parents who insist on action" should be slamdunk talking points on Faux News, but they didn't even hesitate hitting the BackTheBlue button.

Let's not pretend that this police force is any different from any other in america.

They loved their cosplay swat dress up games. But not the real life version

That's NOT their job.  Their job is to fill their quota and steal as much money as possible.  They are trained to never ever get hurt.  Shoot first, ask questions later, and if you're not shooting first, dive for cover and stay there.  That's it.  That's all they do.
 
2022-05-27 9:32:35 AM  
That's a punch-worthy statement. I'm not sure I would have been able to stop myself if I had been the parent of a child in that school.

Kids, teachers, and parents should not have to be braver than cops.

Cops like to pretend they're soldiers, with military ranking systems, armoured personel carriers, and whatever other military surplus they can get their hands on. But when it comes to putting themselves in real danger then pretend time is over.

He's not wrong. Running towards bullets as they fly towards you is stupid and accomplishes nothing productive.

Which is why the terrorist never should have been able to purchase those guns in the first place. The problem isn't the police choosing not to die for no reason. The problem is that just about anyone can get a weapon designed specifically to kill humans in America.
 
2022-05-27 9:39:30 AM  
Maybe a "good guy with a gun" could have prevented this shooting. We'll never know, because cops are not good guys with guns.

Complaining about police response or the door not being locked is treating the symptom and not the sickness. The sickness is that he has the guns in the first place.

At this point I'm just surprised they didn't frag everyone in that classroom.

I mean holy fark this is heartbreaking.

Yesterday morning I was still trying to give them the benefit of the doubt but the stories just kept getting worse. I realize they're a small town but the only pair of balls around were on that mom who jumped the fence to get her kid

You're right. It's way better for half a dozen cops to loiter out front for 45 minutes and do nothing while some nutbag with an AR-15 kills a classroom full of kids.

/Might be the dumbest post I've ever read.
 
2022-05-27 9:42:37 AM  
They are hearing gunshots.

Yeah, that was the farking classroom full of kids being shot that you could have rushed in and saved if you weren't such f*cking cowards refusing to do your jobs. Fire them all.
 
2022-05-27 9:42:42 AM  
I don't want to get shot. But if I'm going to risk it, it would be an honor to get shot defending children's lives.

I don't understand how someone can be a cop and not feel that way. Unless they're a cop for reasons other than service.
 
2022-05-27 9:42:46 AM  
Clearly if liberals hadn't said "defund the police" this never would have happened.

To ensure this never happens again, we just need to buy them APCs and more tacticool toys... uh, I mean EQUIPMENT, and also apologize for not doing so sooner.

At this point I don't know.  SCOTUS has ruled that the police have no duty or obligation to protect the public.  They've also ruled that the police can kill you if they say they feared for their lives.

The public has literally zero reason to trust or rely on the police.  None.

Firefighter: "I was scared I might get burned so I didn't go into that building and fight that fire."

Vet: "I was afraid I might get bit, so I didn't treat any animals today."

Plumber: "I was afraid I might get poop on my hands so I didn't fix that toilet."

Electrician: "I was afraid I could get shocked so I didn't try to fix that breaker box."

Formula1 driver: "I was afraid I could crash so I didn't participate in the race."

Yeah, it's really not a rationale for not doing your job, is it? It doesn't work for any other profession, why do you think it would work for yours?

Then what are you for?

Literally the ONLY reason that cops get away with the crap they do is because they've got everyone snowed that they're big heroes putting their lives on the line.

The job on average is less dangerous than, say, Pizza Delivery.

Cops don't stop crimes, they don't protect people, they don't help people unless there's nothing better to do, and they lie, cheat, steal, rape, and kill with relative impunity.

If you consider yourself a 'good cop', it's time to look at why you exist. Are you a police officer, guarding the walls of civilization against the evils within and without? Or are you a thug, a gang member more loyal to your gang than to the people you claim to protect? Can you look at yourself honestly and say 'I uphold the law fairly and without prejudice?' if you let your blue brethren allow their cowardice to turn them into nothing better than mob goons?

If Police are not ordinary citizens given extra powers to deal with extraordinary citizens, then they can only be an occupying army.
 
2022-05-27 9:44:18 AM  
Even the defund crowd, myself included, agrees that when there's an active, armed shooter roaming around it is PRECISELY the time that, yes, we want to have armed, well-trained law enforcement available to deal with the situation. That's the epitome of their GD job.

Why bother having them?
 
2022-05-27 9:44:50 AM  
it's hard to abuse your power when the other person is willing to fight back and abuse of power towards the public is the only move they know.


As true now as ever, maybe more so.

If you volunteer to be a cop, you are expected to volunteer to go into danger.

It's like volunteering to be a firefighter and then watching a building burn with people inside.
