Agent's my buddy, but he does seem to find a lot of those bad cop stories. Part of why I wouldn't to post that story of the cops being shot is to remember (contrary to mainstream media) that cops can be victims too.

The protesters who shouted they wanted the cops to die didn't help whatever cause it is they're fighting for.

The people who blocked the ambulances who transported these cops should be jailed because blocking a ambulance squad car and fire truck is illegal.. Its also reported people tried breaking into the er. Theres also a guy on youtbe who posted a video not only laughing but detailing the crime the police are looking for him . Imo screw a cash reward for the shooter wich the pd offered for information i say make it a open bounty that way the shooter can live in fear knowing at any moment a friend family member town and city can come to collect said bounty dead or alive. Act like its the wild west lets make it the wild west. These cops just sat in there squad car and this animal walked up on them . Theres actual video. And anybody who supports what this animal did i hope you rot in hell and fuck you and everyone else who justifies this

Since asked, I'll say my feeling is that cops are only human and hence some are going to be corrupt and bad and need to be prosecuted when tried and convicted lawfully (not just by public opinion or looting mobs).

However, I think it's a job that by its nature brings so many threats and just dealing with the crappiest part of society (while under scrutiny by everyone) that they're woefully underpaid and underappreciated. I also truly believe that most officers do the job mostly rightly and for the right reasons.

Perhaps most "controversially," I also would say that it's understandable when a cop is say facing a man jumping a fence at 2:00 am who reaches in his pocket that he doesn't wait to check if the guy happens to be grabbing a cellphone.

It hits close to home for me because i have a cop in the family i know all the cops here propably some of the nicest people and very diverse not just white. Ive gone on ride alongs and man god bless anyone who wants to be a cop. I prefer cops wear body camera's as a mandatory requirement because not only does it protect them but civilians as well. I dont know how they do it.

It's assumed that cops open fire out of maliciousness, but that's not always the case. Sometimes, unfortunately, they just panic and start shooting.

The only thing close to as horrific to that little monster trying to assassinate those two police officers as they sat in their vehicle, are the straight up animals publicly celebrating it on video. Just disgusting evil animals. I am so tired of seeing hate for police normalized in our society. These are people that for the most part, 95 to 99%, deserve our thanks and respect for choosing a life of duty and sacrifice to protect law abiding citizens from disgusting and dangerous criminals. This country needs to wake up fast.

And people who want to blame all of their problems and their station in life on others need to start looking at themselves. Time to get your own houses in order folks.

Twenty-nine German police suspended for sharing pictures of Hitler

I still remember when they had that enormous scandal recently about neo-Nazi groups infiltrating their armed forces. Looks like more coals are needed for raking.

^Besides the ethics, how stupid is that? I realize the swastika and such are banned in Germany, but it can't be that hard to get historical sources for Nazi images (especially online).

The swastika was originaly used in the Hindu religion until the nazis turned it into a symbol of hate. If i remember correctly in hindi it means sun or good day or good fortune. Thats the issue with symbols anyone can hijack them make it mean something else.

Yep. Auspsiciousness or good fortune with variation. You see them prominantly in some parts of Hindu culture:

Same for the pink triangle from ww2 where it was used to identify gays. The gay community adopted it and made it mean something possitive. I wish people would do the same for the confederate flag. Confederates are dead have that flag rebirthed into a new symbol instead of saying it means hate or slavery

This man is mentally ill, and the media treat him like a performing seal. It's really sad.

Walmart cuts workers' hours but increases workload

Save money (by paying your employees less), live better (by fucking over the little guy).
