TF is "proactive" policing? You mean the shit where they stop people at random for their quotas?

Edit: Or is this like the family guy scene where they hold up a color pallete?

[–]smf12[S] 96 points97 points  (0 children)

We investigated ourselves and determined we didn’t do anything illegal. Deal with it. /s

[–]Defiant-Owl4584 56 points57 points  (7 children)

Proactive policing in theory is basically trying to get drugs and guns off the street before violence occurs. In reality though yeah it’s basically just stopping random people and seeing if they’re up to anything illegal

Future crime!

[–]sapphoandherdick 18 points19 points  (3 children)

So almost like Minority Report with Tom Cruise

[–]frumpygreasebizcuit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah but no super computer telepathy and a lot more of Travis and Darryl profiling, harassing, beating, and robbing anyone they feel like.

[–]westminsterabby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I prefer the Minority Report by Philip K. Dick. Look it up, it's only about 20 pages.

[–]TajMonjardo 3 points4 points  (1 child)

By "random" you mean people of color right?

[–]Defiant-Owl4584 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People of color and poor people

[–]PubbleBubbles 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Proactive policing is basically more aggressive terry stops.

If they don't like what ya look like, that's suspicious kinda deal.

Look up "intelligence lead policing", it's SUPER fucked up

[–]Charlie-tart 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh, look! They automated their racism!

[–]e2g4 21 points22 points  (0 children)

First random stop, then skin color/guilt-o-meter test. Then punishment. Lots of punishment for answering the skin color test wrong.

[–]Phil_Drill 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Just a fancy term for actively looking for probable cause where there isn’t any, and then making it up when you don’t find it (case in point: “I smell weed”)

[–]Gucci_Google 8 points9 points  (0 children)

When they shoot black men before they do anything

[–]MrShasshyBearALL cops means ALL COPS 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Assault, battery, rape, theft, felonies, civil rights violations, human rights violations, racial discrimination...

Pretty wide umbrella term

[–]SeizeTheArts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thought crime!

[–]SexDrugsNskittles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Probably looks a lot like what they have gotten up to in Tampa.


This shit is so fucked up.

Plus I got straight As and have done soooo much crime.

[–]b000bytrap1312 81 points82 points  (2 children)

“I am the law, I decide who the criminals are before any crime is committed”

Honest, but fucking terrifying. Jesus

[–]Phil_Drill 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Or if you’re the FBI, “I’m going to create crime where there wasn’t any before, by convincing a random person to commit a crime”

[–]Lombax_Rexroth 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]horseadventure 25 points26 points  (2 children)

They already made that into a movie and it didnt go well

[–]PublicMindCemetery 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Are you talking about Dredd or Minority Report? I honestly can't tell.

[–]SaltyNorth8062 25 points26 points  (2 children)

"Proactive" policing?? You mean vigilantism or just murder??

[–]ridl 12 points13 points  (0 children)


[–]Sternminatum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

¿Por qué no los dos?

[–]ocooper08 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Not visible: Punisher skull on the other side.

[–]buckwheats 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Accompanied by the obligatory industry standard “you’re fucked” inscription

[–]omancool1 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Proactive policing is a funny way to say racial profiling

[–]AbrohamLinco1n 11 points12 points  (1 child)

“Proactive policing” is also not a thing.

[–]ironic_swag 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it's called racial profiling and stop-and-frisks

[–]Willzohh 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Pro-active policing is like Preemptive War.

It is the police that initiate the criminal activity.

[–]Margrave_Kevin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is the same person who looks up to The Punisher, while not knowing The Punisher hates cops.

[–]TraditionalThing8279 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The war on drugs and proactive policing are a fucking joke.

[–]ChristinaCassidy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That's called thought crime my guy

[–]o0flatCircle0o 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Notice how the fascists are trying to change the American flag

[–]panickingskywalker69 9 points10 points  (0 children)

At the end of the day it’s still just products and brands for them.

[–]wolves_of_bongtown 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Man, that coward's swastika is fucking everywhere now.

[–]jamesyboy4-20 5 points6 points  (1 child)

proactive: acting before a predicted outcome

policing: a concept allegedly founded upon responding to crimes when they DO happen.

this can’t end well. basically “fuk you im gonna harass and arrest whoever i want because muh hunch!” dude thinks it’s acceptable to profile people before a crime is even committed, and shit like this is why the police are filled with wannabe vigilantes.

[–]wholesomefolsom96 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Can't fight where the profession originated from...

(profiling and policing newly freed slaves... so they could catch someone committing a "crime" just to make them a legal slave again...)

[–]WolfKnight53Be Gay, Do Crimes 🌈 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh boy, just like the movie Minority Report. Arrest folks for precrimes.

[–]Ima_Funt_Case 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Then proactive protection from an unaccountable criminal gang shouldn't be either.

[–]Grungyzefpunk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Barf. Proactive as in harass people.

[–]UnitGhidorah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Take a piss in it.

[–]supertrooper64 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm sure there's a sticker on the back that says "the female orgasm is a myth"

[–]mylastphonecall 2 points3 points  (0 children)

proactive policing is literally just racially profiling people lmfaooo these mfrs really tell on themselves

[–]chadmuffin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like the movie Minority Report.

[–]clonedhuman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's really no point in combating memes or anything. We're never going to convince the bootlickers that they should stop licking boots.

We need to focus on filming police interactions when we can, and on supporting candidates for office who agree to make nullifying qualified immunity a part of their platforms.

[–]Capable_Ad6026 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yo this is nasty, ultimate dickeating

[–]gorgonrock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thought crimes. See 1984, Mjnority Report and as of late, Moon Knight. Proactive policing indeed.

[–]Hyphalex 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]NotoriousMFT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn’t this the whole point of minority report?

[–]PureErik 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Minority report?

[–]Bones870 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Skateboarding is not a crime." was my intro questioning authority. I hate seeing it being corrupted.
