There will always be people who give a 'black eye' associated with a group of people (Muslims, jews, right wingers, cops, blacks, men, women, priests, liberals, Yooper's from the UP, rural, farmers, urban, wealthy, unemployed, etc. etc. etc.).

You can either choose to let these reinforce your stereotypes to make them stronger, or understand that the person you are making note of and those like them likely make up less than <1% of that population your are fixated on.



Side note:

Burge was convicted in federal court in 2010 of lying about the torture and sentenced to 41/2 years in prison. He still collects a police pension.


Gotta love those Illinois pensions. Good thing IL is so flush with cash right now. :lol:

Perhaps Chicago school officials should also consider educating their youth on perpetual poverty due to life choices, single-teen pregnancy prevention, effects of rampant drug use, murder and its effect on a community, and anti-street gang solutions.

Then again, nah. There's only so much education funding to go around. It's much more important to further escalate the tension and mistrust between the black community and local law enforcement by highlighting and focusing teen attention on the exploits of a small, corrupt police faction from a quarter century past. :AOK

I used to believe cops were mostly good people, and typically act out as a response to the stress of a tough job.

And in my subjective experience, there was compelling reason to believe it; I grew up in a pretty affluent suburb where the only real thing for cops to do is bust rich kids throwing house-parties.

I stopped believing it after seeing -- among other things -- a crowd of cops cheering in response to Trump addressing them and saying that actual police brutality is no big deal. Also, in Charlottesville, the police were generally pretty okay with the Neo-Nazis, what with voicing support for killing Heather Heyer on Facebook (he had to apologize), or ignoring one of them firing a gun (this was caught on video).

So yeah, the cops mostly maniacs and out-of-control. And why not? Violent arseholes see that they can get away with brutalizing people if they wear the badge, so they sign themselves right up for it.

Also, the fake-news media are accomplices:

And the White House just decided to arm them with grenade-launchers, too. How fun.

While I can't largely agree with much of your post, this did upset me.

Cop: it's okay, we only kill black people

I predict the rational centrist response will be: "Oh, it's fine because he was just trying to calm the woman down" :roll:

Well, he's right because 99% of the crimes are committed by them.

Not sure where you're going with these last couple posts other than to try and prove this idiotic statement:
Charon21 wrote:So yeah, the cops mostly maniacs and out-of-control.


It's been conceded there are bad cops just like there are bad apples in every profession. Nobody disputes that. But the overwhelming majority of cops are good people looking to protect and serve the public. To frame the law enforcement profession as "mostly maniacs" along with the rest of that drivel you wrote is utterly idiotic and not worth wasting the time to discuss beyond pointing out the absurdity of it.

Ah, yes! I was just waiting for APB's rational centrism (TM) to grace this thread.

Please show me your evidence that the overwhelming majority of cops are good people. You know, beyond your personal, subjective impression of them. I used to hold that impression, too. Then I started paying attention.

Here is my evidence that the "few bad apples" thing is bull $#!!,

Trump's best, " I could kill a guy on main street, and no one would convict me" translation, I could shoot me a Black man or Mexican and and my base would applaud, possibly the NRA would even up there campaign contribution :lol:
