    We need a "police acting like actual police & not criminals catch-all" thread.

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    I saw the video on the news this morning;

    After a video provided to CBS2/KCAL9 by a witness showing three plainclothes Glendale police officers beating a teenager suspected of shoplifting, with another uniformed officer coming into the fray and kicking the teen in the face, all four officers have been placed on administrative leave. “It was really hard to watch. We got traumatized. We have, like, all of the video stuck in our head,” Melissa Navarette, the teen victim’s sisters, told CBSLA’s Kandiss Crone.

    I doubt it. These days, the mainstream and social media love a good "cop shoots and kills suspect" story, so that's what they bring you. Non lethal and often peaceful takedowns of armed suspects happen all the time, but that's not really what sells or fits the "police bad" narrative.

    Speaking of, let's add a little positive balance to this thread, with video of cops doing good. Sadly, with demands for "defund the police" and record numbers of police retiring and quitting due to all the bad press, we are likely to see less of these stories:

    That you believe cops doing their job requires special recognition pretty much shows how fucked accountability is in law enforcement. Like you said, it's easy ratings to report on police corruption and yet I have never heard of a news story where police enforced their own without prompting from the public first. So fuck giving them a gold star for sometimes doing an adequate job that costs some cities half their fiscal budget.

    And "loving stories" is not why we amplify them! We'd like to have a world where it's very rare to see these stories!

    Well, yes, you are acting immorally by hating white people over this. Why is that difficult to understand?

    And it wasn't "OK" for white people to hate black people for 200 years. What is so hard to understand?

    Oh, there are quite a few in the archives. But they never last long. People don't remain interested in the normal.
