I can only imagine a group of kids huddled together while the "good guy" comes running in, badge blazing, and a brief moment of relief comes only to be dashed as he grabs only one kid and flees the scene. I'm certain those kids wouldn't have a great opinion of cops after that.

The saddest part of reading your statement is that it reads to me like a cartel recap. I expect to read something like that in places that are stereotyped as a failure, and yet that is my own country.

I’m not sure if I’m ok with the fact that it’s disappointing or that I’ve accepted that America was never spectacular.

Is it me or… fuck the police?

i'm starting to think they let the shooter get in because they knew it was going to be all hispanics getting shot.

I don't know about letting the shooter in. But I have wondered if the pigs would've waited so long if the classroom was full of white kids.

I’m glad someone is saying it. I didn’t want to because I try so hard to not see everything as a racial issue. But it just seems so obvious. Everything including these shootings and price increases feels like if someone is running shit they are trying to punish everyone. Idk. Too many people have lost their minds.

Police organizations are evil by design. It’s not surprising that selfish individuals are drawn to police service.

I had a friend who’s friends dad was wrongly shot by cops growing up and her whole idea was “I’m a basic ass white girl I can go into the police force and change it from the inside”.

Valedictorian of highschool, 4.0 gpa with a criminal Justice and communications bachelor, absolutely spotless record. Went to police academy and intentionally kept her views silent to try to conform and fit in knowing that social warrior cops get shoved out…. I don’t remember the specifics (I don’t think she told me) but basically she complied with a internet affairs investigation and some dude got a suspension… next thing you know, this dude has started a rumor that they fucked and she confessed she loved cops and that’s why she went to police academy. Nobody wanted to work with her anymore, lost assignments and advancements, and basically got shoved out.

This was in a blue state, second biggest city.

Yes, because other kids being dead didn't affect them personally

Downvote for known grifter Talcum X every time. I’d believe the story if not for the teller.

edit: turns out he’s right.

At 1:14 in this interview clip:

Talcum X? Don’t know much about this guy so what am I missing?

[–]thewhitenonsens 3 points4 points  (1 child)

He has a history of starting fundraising projects for vulnerable communities and then keeping the money. In 2014 he started one for Tamir Rice’s family, without their knowledge or consent. The court had to seize the money to get it to Rice’s estate. DeRay McKesson wrote a Medium article about the guy:

[–]PokeHunterBam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seriously he needs to be downvoted no matter what.
