Nope, the 'burbs.
All the cops do here is write traffic tickets. They are experts at that.
Nobody likes getting a ticket. I got one recently. I was speeding and he gave me a ticket for a seat belt that I actually had on. It's better than a speeding ticket Laws of the roads are important. Otherwise us civilians would just run each other over lol
I work around with more LE than most people, through work. Vast majority very good people, a few, not so good.
Is what in the constitution?
The good ones probably saved some lives but the vast majority of them didnt.
Why do you think we are taught from a young age to distrust the police? Have you ever considered its because the cops deserve that mistrust or is that something you cant bring yourself to consider because youre white?
If it was just my limited experience you would have a point. I have my experience. Every single member of my families experience, the vast majority of Black people I know and plenty I dont know personally experiences.
You should see them when they are jacking people in the hood.
I am a huge fan of cops- and bravery in action is just a small part of it- they have to deal with the humanity most of us want nothing to do with- I know the cops in my neighborhood and have had fantastic interactions with them- what they should be applauded for every day is working to keep us all safer.
That doesn't mean we should ignore the very small percentage of cops that abuse their power.
Lets do both- applaud and appreciate the vast majority of cops who do a very underappreciated job- and condemn those few who abuse their authority.
So what exactly should we do about the significant percentage of "good" cops who stay silent about or cover for those bad cops who abuse their power?
Staying silent about abuse of power- is an abuse of power.
