Quote from: Icarus on June 11, 2020, 02:16:11 AMBilly, What he said was that all cops are not bad cops. He had been intimidated by a cop on more than one occasion, he had instructed his son about how to behave when he was stopped when driving while black. The minister was careful to say that most cops are not bad guys and most of them are not dedicated racists. When we translate the pastors commentary, it means that our society is a mixed bag and that there are some of us that are fucked up with some kind of learned hate. I concur. There are some of us, mostly the unsophisticated clods who never read a book or newspaper, who are either closeted or outed racists. ...My sermon: Some cops are stupid bastards who have some sort of superiority complex that they believe entitles them to abuse or even kill people that they believe are unworthy. Well surprise, surprise. The problem is not exclusive to cops. I have worked with engineers who were stupid bastards with a complex. Some of our Lawyers, accountants, politicians, and doctors also suffer from the hate syndrome. Most of those professionals have actually read books and newspapers but have chosen sources that cater to the preconceived notions that they had already embraced. In defense of the above professionals, I agree that most of them do not kill people directly. Neither do the vast majority of cops kill people as a sport.

Quote from: Dark Lightning on November 23, 2020, 06:07:43 PMThat's horrible. That, and the 5 people killed by the police per day in Brasilia in 2019.
QuoteI'll bet those guards plead "not guilty" when they go to court. Hopefully the prosecution has the video.
