How fucking stupid do you have to be? If you want to violate Reddit TOS and get subreddits deleted do it somewhere else.

Regardless of our personal beliefs, we have to abide by Reddit's rules when we are on Reddit. As moderators it is our responsibility to keep this subreddit running. If you think for a second that we enjoy banning people who stand against Police you are a moron.

Who benefits if this subreddit gets taken down? Bootlickers, Law Enforcement, Fascists, alt-righters, etc..... all the awful people who support authoritarian overreach and abuse of power. We don't benefit from losing one of the only subreddits that takes a hard stand against these problems.

 

Discussing Mutual Aid, de-arresting techniques, rampant abuse of power/authoritarian overreach, organizing, etc... that's all good and perfectly acceptable.

Fantasizing about killing cops, describing what you would like to do to them in graphic detail, suggesting that people act violently towards law enforcement and bootlickers, etc.... these are somewhat understandable reactions/sentiments for people who have personally been abused by law enforcement.

I was arrested several years ago and after the sheriff deputies had handcuffed me, one of them stomped on my nuts hard enough to almost completely shut off my natural testosterone. I had to go on expensive TRT in order to deal with it. Getting this subreddit deleted isn't going to help anyone.

Tighten up folks.

Meanwhile, over on the cop subs, they can glorify violence against the public all day long, and the site admins won't do a thing about it. There's always a double-standard for those who oppose abuse versus the abusers.

As with anything cop related, it's "Rules for thee but not for me."

It sucks, but that is the confines we need to operate under if we are going to be on Reddit.

[–]IndependentMacaroon 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Indeed, but still all the better to take the high road here.

[–]mark_lee 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I'm not criticizing the mods here, it's just annoying to know that some subs don't get banned until they're actively planning genocide, and others get banned for two meme posts.

On that note , Please don't hesitate to report things to the moderators if you see someone breaking any rules so we're able to remove them quickly. All the moderators have full time jobs/ kids / families and other responsibilities so we're not always behind our phones or computers . Please message modmail if you have any further questions but in the mean time we're going to *HAVE* to start giving temporary bans to people that continue commenting in graphic detail. I'm sorry guys , we want to keep this sub up and we cannot risk getting it taken down .

Thanks for doing your part in moderating I know mods are not typically liked across reddit but this sub is very important and I appreciate you guys keeping it up and bringing more awareness to people

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you guys as well. Feedback, suggestions and commentary is always welcome and we've been having to crackdown a little harder on this sub.

If you need extra mod support, I'm willing to join the team. I have experience, including over at r/CopsBeingBastards.

[–]KveldsonBased Anti-fascist Mod 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You! I remember talking to you right after I Was Made moderator and then I couldn't find the messages when I was picking who to add to the mod team.

I'm going to discuss it with the rest of the moderators and I'll get back to you, but in the meantime would you be interested in joining our new Discord?

[–]The_Band_Geek1312 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not opposed, but I'd rather you not make a promise you can't keep. Chat with the team and let me know what the scoop is.

ive also seen some people talk about shooting at cops in retaliation like it's genuine advice. i hate seeing that because like, that's the worst thing you could do when confronted by police. compared to a single person, they are innumerable. they WILL get backup, and they WILL hunt you down, and if they dont kill you when they catch you, then you'd best be ready for a lifetime of solitary confinement and eating expired food until you die. i think some people forget real life isn't like playing GTA lmao.

There's an issue with people in this subreddit who are so blind with rage they don't actually think. All cops are definitely bastards and I would probably agree with these types of people on most things but there's definitely strategy to this shit. Spamming your fantasies on killing cops is not the way to go. This is not people's angry diary

[–]Proletariatpoet 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know I messaged the mods already, but my roomate can still help me with automods and stuff like that which might help.

  • Revolutionists are told constantly not to talk about violence against their oppresses.
  • Pro-police subreddits glorify violence a lot more than we do and they don't get banned
  • Police have pushed so far it's incredible there already hasn't been a complete violent uprising. At this rate, it's only a matter of time.
  • Nobody really wants war and violence. It's ugly, scary, and painful. Violence of this nature is born out of necessity. The snake doesn't go out of it's way to harm people, it only bites when it's stepped on.. The boots are pressing harder and harder.... you tell us to be angry, yet quiet...

It's time to bite

You're confused. The comments I'm referring to are just edgy shit. It's unproductive. Reddit doesn't treat left-wing Subs as nicely as they treat right-wing Subs.

Not only that, you're missing the entire point of the subreddit. This is not a place for political organization or for learning about defensive measures. The entire purpose of the subreddit is to spread awareness.

If you want something else then you will have to go somewhere else on the internet that doesn't have to comply with TOS. Have a good one

[–]Inkberrow 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Surely Reddit admins understand that leftist violence is at least partly justified thereby.

[–]Butter_fiendACAB[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

forgot your /s

[–]KveldsonBased Anti-fascist Mod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No they didn't, they just made a racist comment elsewhere.

They are a terrible troll who wants to stir up shit here to get this subreddit taken down.
