Yes i get that the justice system is effed up and the police need to be held accountable for their horrible actions
BUT NOT ALL POLICE ARE BAD
NOT ALL POLICE ARE CORRUPT OR RACIST OR POWER HUNGRY
LUMPING TOGETHER ALL POLICE INTO THIS MOLD OF BEING HORRIBLE PEOPLE IS JUST STUPID
Now is absolutely 100% not the time for this.
Let me tell you why.
The bad police are injuring and killing innocent people.
The “not bad” police are letting it happen.
Anyone who is willing to let people get hurt or killed is not a person who falls into the “good” category. End statement.
So are police of my state of Arizona considered bad because they’re not sending all police units to Missouri? Or any state in this us? Yes, Missouri police should be doing something about this. But classifying other states as “bad” police officers because they’re not abandoning their post to go to Missouri is redundant. Yes, this whole situation is horrifying and there is something that needs to be done. But if you’re going to throw my family members who are police officers in California into the same boat as the asshole cops who are making this worse? Then you’re not solving the problem of hate, only adding to it.
This is irrelevant to the situation at hand and you know it. Nowhere in my post did I imply cops who aren’t in the area are letting it happen.
Stop distracting and detracting from current events. Quit being so quick to defend people who obviously don’t need the defending, and get back to focusing on the fact that people are being killed and shit is out of hand.
Keep in mind, though, that sometimes they’re being actively prevented from stopping the bad guys from doing what they do. Either threats to their own lives or, god forbid, their families’ lives are damn good motivators to keep their nose out of the fray. I’m not trying to justify their inaction against their comrades’ pisspoor actions and reactions, but there may be things happening behind the scenes that we don’t know about.
Crooked cops will do what they have to to ensure that their crookedness can continue.
