    Bullshit. I'll say it again. Fuck the police and fuck everyone condoning their violence.

    This cool with you bootlickers? https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video...cc97G5b-Db.mp4

    With no provocation Buffalo cops shoved an elderly man to the ground, hitting his head on the concrete, likely giving him a skull fracture. Another cop briefly motions towards attending to him, and a third cop pulls him away. As the man lies motionless on the sidewalk bleeding out of his ears, like two dozen cops walk by indifferently.

    Here’s what the video shows:

    Elderly man approaches line of cops in riot gear and appears to try to reason with them, gesturing (I’m assuming) towards their batons, guns, and/or tasers.

    Another cop pushes him back in a “STAND ASIDE, SIR” kind of motion.

    The man stumbles back several steps, trips, and falls backwards.

    Another cop immediately crouches down to attend to him, but is pulled to his feet by another officer, probably because they are not supposed to break the line.

    The cops continue in their line towards what I’m assuming is a large gathering of people (the camera doesn’t actually show us).

    Several soldiers behind the row of police officers huddle down over the elderly man, and the video ends.

    Do you even know what the word "generalizing" means? There is no statement in that post that contains a generalization. "Fuck the police" as an expression of a person's personal sentiments. ACAB is generalizing, but I didn't say ACAB.

    Spare me your "personal sentiments". You're generalizing that every cop is evil. They're not. And the same can be said with blacks. Not all of them are bad people. You're not being level-headed about it.

    Why do you have to act like that? I'll say it again, this is like the religion topic that was shut down a while ago.

    Would the same acceptance be given if one said "F the blacks and f everyone condoning their violence?" My guess is no.

    Edit: Personally, I find it absurd how one group is a protected class to the point where any negativity (warranted or not) towards them can not be mentioned.

    Are you referring to black people or cops with this statement?

    Based on this entire discussion I'd have to amend my comments to remove any ambiguity and say both. It seems one must either love them or hate them and there lacks an in between.

    Edit: The response to any sort of negativity places you in one category. Mention blacks and crime and you are a racist. Call out police on the wrongs and you hate cops. It's an endless circle.

    Again, you're making a false equivalency. Protesters are the OPPOSITE of what the cops are. They're not a hierarchical organization, just a random collection of people. There is no protester war room where they plan to kill someone or burn something, and there isn't an organizational scheme to cover it up. You can't treat them the same as the police. If someone is caught or recorded committing violence or vandalism, they're arrested and charged. With cops, practically the entire country has to lose its shit for something to happen. The "there are good and bad apples" argument shouldn't apply to cops because we can't afford to have ANY bad apples among those with guns and the state authority to detain and incarcerate citizenry. There are jobs that simply cannot allow "bad apples." Would you fly if the flight attendant told you that most pilots are good and only a few bad apples like to crash into mountains?

    Also, watching at least 20 "good" cops just walk by that man as he bled onto the sidewalk shows that the problem of police violence is systemic. For every bad apple, there are dozens that turn a blind eye or even cover it up. You shouldn't have to gather by the thousands and DEMAND that the law be applied to those who abuse it. Could you imagine if you had to do that if a surgeon killed someone through malpractice or if a teacher abused a student? Shit, the mayor and governor of NY went on TV and said tear gas wasn't used against protesters despite multiple eyewitness accounts -including one government official - and videos of exactly that happening.

    There isn't any organization with the protestors nor rioters? I'm supposed to believe such nonsense?

    The "good and bad apples" applies anytime the human condition is present and it is present in the police.

    I wouldn't fly even if every plane was piloted by a non emotional flawless computer but even so, pilots are fallible with or without being told.

    We can take an action by police and cover each one with the same broad brush yet can't do the same with rioters or protestors ? At times police were injured during these protests and those involved did nothing to help but something tells me painting them all will be met with resistance. Why? The goalposts seem to be moved at will depending on who is involved. Emotion(s) is the problem. You don't charge someone because of your feelings. Certain requirements and standards need to be achieved and just because a cop does something you don't like doesn't automatically mean he/she violated laws but that goes for everyone. For the record, they aren't my favorite people. IDK if the four officers would have been charged if people didn't trash Minneapolis but looking at the A.G. I would think so. Still, the charges brought seem hinged on emotion and nothing else. I don't believe for one second the main police officer will be convicted of 2nd degree murder. The other guys? Lets just say the city should prepare for more destruction.
