WTF over-zealous police? - Page 272

post #4066 of 6095
Seems like this is more a political statement about hate crimes.

Most states already have enhanced penalties for crimes committed against police (and various other groups like paramedics, firefighters, you name it). The only thing different about this one would be the hate crime label.

And do most states even formally call their hate crimes laws by that name? I have no idea, but I tend to doubt it.

You mean like how in LA, killing a cop is a capital crime unlike killing a normal person.

Cops are more important that people, what can we say. Must be why the laws don't apply to them.

This Nero guy in Baltimore was so obviously innocent that I wonder if the prosecutor put him on trial in order to secure a not guilty verdict. I suppose he has to testify against the others now since he can't fear self-incrimination (though maybe he could argue federal civil rights charges).

Megyn Kelly's exchange with a leader of BLM over the Nero verdict was typical of what you'd expect from a hate group. She kept asking him "what did he do wrong, what crime did he commit?" He couldn't answer, of course, but his position was quite obviously "he's white!"

Cops are fucking garbage. One should get an additional Benjie on one's EBT for offing those pigfucks. Fucking worthless parasites.

I see policemen as being on the Bell curve with a standard distribution.

Good thing the cops didn't have their guns on them. The FDNY would've ended up dead for resisting arrest.

Guards vs. inmates is a much better game.

There is a very old saying that "Power Corrupts" and it seems to me a lot of law enforcement officers in a lot of different countries get corrupted very easily on their perceived status. I know this infuriates the minority that see the job as a public service.

Plato's "philosopher king" was always a sad joke. Too bad the supposedly most modern among us still believe in the rule of the expert.

Obviously the new orders rule of the imbecile is gaining ground
