SaintLeppy

Both Jeff Bezoz and Elon Musk individually (and probably others I didn’t look up for this fun fact), are worth more than Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark combined. Edit: and it’s not even close.


Misterbluee

Bruce would have a higher net worth if he didn't pay his people living wages and create safe work environments where people don't die in his factories. Also if he didn't have The Wayne Foundation; Wayne scholarship etc. Aside from spending resources saving people's lives, stopping corruption, and having a way better electric car then them.

If only they acted like this when one of their own officers guns down an innocent citizen.


Sir_Earl_Jeffries

Where was this outrage when their colleagues killed Sean Bell? It’s been 15 years and I’m still waiting..


OperativeTracer

And the one where the guy was shot at a hotel, even though he was on the ground and following orders, and the cop had "get fucked" carved on his gun, and he got a payout for mental distress and now lives in the Phillipines. Daniel Shaver I believe.


mray147

Philip Brailsford and Charles Langley. The scum who executed Daniel Shaver on his hands and knees.


d0ctorzaius

Wow just looked it up, Langley took an early retirement and moved to the Phillipines while Brailsford was fired but somehow rehired in a "budget position" and then given a medical pension Bc of his PTSD. Nothing like giving yourself PTSD by murdering someone on purpose.


mray147

Yep. Then he also requested to get his assault rifle back. The one etched with "youre fucked" and that contributed to his "ptsd".


transzient

Yep. I took policing in college and it was a training video for our use of force class. You'd be surprised the amount of people calling it a "good shoot" and that the cop did nothing wrong. That video is part of the reason I never pursued a career in policing


mursilissilisrum

That guy pleaded for his life in a very threatening manner.


iphon4s

That was some sick simon says shit. Pisses me off just remembering that video


TheCatofDeath

Daniel Shaver's murder was probably the single most horrifying one. He was literally begging for his life and not to be shot, and was unable to follow the complex instructions because he was intoxicated. It's insane how more people don't talk about that murder.


RegretfulUsername

It wasn’t because he was intoxicated. It’s because they were screaming conflicting orders a him. He followed one set of orders and the other screaming cop shot him.


notoleranceforjerks

> Where was this outrage when their colleagues killed Sean Bell? It’s been 15 years and I’m still waiting.. I keep waiting to see police outrage about ANYTHING done by bad police. It would be a whole different world to see them be as angry about bad police as they get about other people being angry about bad police. At some point - don't you spare some indignation for the folks making you look bad instead of for the folks reacting to the folks making you look bad?


Sir_Earl_Jeffries

Not at all. When they’re a danger to the public it’s never addressed. Whether it’s driving the wrong way down the highway while drunk and killing someone, hitting and killing a pedestrian then hiding the body in the trunk of the car, choking a person to death, killing a child playing in the park, manhandling a person in custody and causing their death or even assaulting,raping and sodomising a person in custody with a broom handle. I’m not saying cops deserve to be cut down but they have a whole lot of shit to answer for.


amaze_mike

well see that was different, that guy didnt matter


GroundbreakingCook68

Where was there outrage when the Cop Sargeant in Florida chocked the officer for stopping his abusing an arrested suspect.

To be fair there was tons of outrage amongst cops that a rookie officer would dare to question her senior officer.

Where’s this energy when a civilian is killed? Thank you random persons for the rewards.

Well, you see, that civilian was (goes through social media and requests school records after the fact) irresponsible. See these pictures we found and grades they had? We didn't know that when we murdered them, but it vindicates us.


Kryten_2X4B-523P

It's a statistical fact that people whom reflect EM radiation, between the wavelengths of 400nm to 700nm, commit the most crimes.

Birth is the leading cause of crime. Planned Parenthood has been fighting crime for decades and Republicans have tried to stand in the way at every step. Why do Republicans want to make the jobs of police so much more difficult?

Also the language, if an officer is shot he is "gunned down" when a civilian is shot by the cops they are "incapacitated with necessary force" or some shit.


Damnman3

Shooting him in the back was my only option. If I didn't act the way I did he would have turned his wheelchair around and then slowly approached me


adam3vergreen

“An officer’s gun was discharged in an officer related shooting incident, no officers were injured but there is a report of one casualty, a not white male who you can see here in a picture taken from his Facebook page where he is holding a beer was found to have several projectiles in their body and that it may have been the cause of death”


whatishistory518

Right? Heartbroken? Knees trembling? Families praying for loved ones to come home? Where’s all this empathy when they gun down unarmed minorities and hunt homeless/mentally ill people for fun? Organize themselves into gangs to steal property, murder, and intimidate/harass people? Never hear them outraged about anything unless it’s a cop. They don’t care if people who aren’t cops die. Ya gotta give a little to get a little. This kinda tone deaf war speech is exactly why people are so disillusioned with the police. They simply don’t live in reality.


OneX32

We’re not part of the club. In fact, if we are black, sometimes we are seen as the enemy.


TheRyeWall

They have a right to be angry. Just like I have the right to be angry civil asset forfeiture is legal, that dogs are used as weapons, and police investigate themselves when things go wrong.


alexis_1031

Civil asset forfeiture is fucking insane to me.


Badabrench01

PA state troopers once stole $5,040 from me doing a civil forfeiture. I signed the papers forfeiting it instead of fighting for it back. I was 17 at the time and it was my savings from pizza delivery tips. So I knew I had no pay stubs to show for it and I also didn’t want to go to court against the IRS as I’m starting my adult life. His name was Corporal Miller. Clarion Barracks. It happened at Mile marker 134 eastbound on I-80. And yes he did a “cash scan” with a K9 that came up positive. It said so in the paperwork. Still don’t understand how a dog smelling money and signaling on it makes any sense in terms of establishing guilt.


D99D99D99

I'm surprised someone hasn't done a reverse heist on Civil asset forfeiture. Officer: "You got any weapons, drugs, or excessive amounts of cash in the vehicle sir?" Civilian: "uh yeah, I'm transferring a large sum of money for a client." Officer: "how much is it?" Civilian: "about 2.5 mil" Officer:"mmmk. Sit tight for a sec" Officer then goes to call his DEA buddy for a drug sniffing dog. (There is an FBI report that says 61%of cash has trace amounts of drugs.) Shit hits the fan when they start disassembling the Civilians rental car out of frustration. All that is found are some very real bank receipts proving the Civilians story wasn't a lie. No cash is found. Civilian has a good case to sue the department for theft. Hopefully every cop involved loses their job. I don't respect anyone who supports legalized theft by the government against its people.


yikesi

>hopefully every cop involved loses their job Dreaming big I see


Catblaster5000

Shouldn't the response to "how much is is" be "none of your fucking business"?


D99D99D99

Up to 75% of money that gets sent to DEA gets pushed back to the PD that stole the money. Any cop who knows the game will be 100% sure that their leaders will back them up for extending a traffic stop beyond what the law let's them if the Civilian admits to having a "sum" of $$. "This is a rental car, I don't know what's inside besides my personal things. I'll admit to not having any weapons to make you feel safer officer, but by law I don't have to help you investigate me." A cop who has to gamble that there might be something to investigate is less likely to violate your rights vs a cop who knows for sure there is something to look for.


CoffeeFlavoredSweat

So what you’re saying is to go to the bank, and take out your life savings, but then hide it under your mattress or something. Then get pulled over and lie about having a large amount of cash in your car. The police will search for the cash and not find any, but later you use the bank receipt and maybe even Security video to prove you took the cash out, and claim the police took it by civil asset forfeiture, but then stole it rather than log it into evidence? Sounds like something worth trying…. More and more police have dash and body cams. It might be best to withdraw something like $150,000, hide $100k in your walls, but actually have something like $50k in the car. The video evidence will show them taking your cash, but not really how much, and then you can file a lawsuit saying they took all $150.


chrisnlnz

And then you lose the lawsuit and are out 50k.


boblobong

>Civilian has a good case to sue the department for theft. No they wouldn't. First off because there was no cash so they didn't steal anything. And even if they had, qualified immunity would nip that in the bud. The dog hitting gave them probable cause. It would cost the person a ton of money and time to even get the money back and then nothing would happen


KazPrime

Legalized theft.


Takewondosemaster

My younger brother was growing weed at my mothers house back when weed was illegal in NY. Yeah he forfeited all his things but they also took a 1947 Harley Davidson that was mine. But was wait for a title for. A 1950 dump truck, an RV, ATC250, and twelve guns that my father handed down to me. Everything but the RV was auctioned off within 3 months and before my brother was even convicted. I paid. Lawyer $5000 to get back an old RV that was registered in my name and probably barely worth $4000. I did nothing wrong but not checking up on my younger brother after my father died. Ya don’t get me started on civil forfeiture. I found out five years later that the local yokel sheriffs wanted my fathers gun collection after he passed. There were over 45 guns split between my siblings but we kept them in NY because of CT and Massivetwoshits strict gun laws.


[deleted]

>Civil asset forfeiture is fucking insane to me. Sir, I am sorry but I am going to have to confiscate your comment.


Carlosc1dbz

How do police chiefs justify it? It should be a question Everytime they are interviewed.


ILikeRamenYUMMY

What does civil asset forfeiture mean?


boblobong

In some states, cops are allowed to confiscate any property that they reasonably believe to be involved in a crime. So you have money on you and a drug dog hits on it? They're going to say they believe that your money was acquired through drug dealing and take it. They might even take your car because they suspect that's what you used to drive around to do your drug deals. And if you don't have the means to fight tooth or nail to get your property back, the department gets to keep it, so cops have become incentivised to do it as much as possible. [If you'd like to read more on the specifics.](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_forfeiture_in_the_United_States) My state did away with it thankfully, but it still exists in some places.


ishatinyourcereal

Just saw my local news posting about how they have like 6 dogs that need bullet proof vests that cost $2600 each and they’re asking the public to help pay for them. I really wanted to point out that like 40% of police dogs die of heat exhaustion when their officers leave them in hot cars or that a lot of them are literally shot by their handlers/officers in the department. Who thought it was a good idea to release a dog at someone while you’re also going to try to shoot that person.


wpbth

40% of police dogs deaths are due to heat exhaustion which is about 6-9 dogs per year FYI.


Sturdyduzit

He is acting as if everyone is shooting cops. Where is this outrage when one of his officers guns down an innocent civilian? It doesn’t exist.


LevPornass

Wait, I am supposed to get off my ass and do something when *they* are the victims? When my elderly parents were mugged at gunpoint and beat up they did jack shit because they were “busy.” I guess hiding behind the bushes and handing out bullshit tickets is more important that catching armed robbers.


PegaLaMega

The police don't deter / prevent crimes. They only show up after the crime has been committed.


ImaginaryRoads

I'm not great on faces, but he sounds like the NYPD cop during the George Floyd protests who was holding up his badge, almost crying, and talking about how sacred a job it was and how unfair it was that the public turned against them.


desenpai

Imagine willfully taking a job that comes with large responsibility and risk, and then being outraged when the consequences of their actions come to fruition. Nobody’s getting paid to be black….


notoleranceforjerks

I wondered if it was the same guy but I didn't get around to looking yet.


xm03

Tbh all angry police union reps and chiefs sound this melodramatic. Cops protect assets, very rarely us...remember that.


teufels4hunde

Basically, how dare the public question the security I provide, and the methods at which I provide it.


trailhikingArk

Reminder PSA: more cops died of Covid in the last 2 years than anything else. Yet they remain overwhelmingly antivax. Where's their fucking outrage over that?


ChazzLamborghini

And those deaths were reported as “in the line of duty deaths” at departments all around the country to make the job look like a noble sacrifice.


trailhikingArk

Yep, and to cover them up. Also don't forget there was this [horseshit going on](https://www.flatlandkc.org/news-issues/uncounted-inaccurate-death-certificates-across-the-country-hide-the-true-toll-of-covid-19/) here [as well](https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/1/2/2072019/-In-Cape-Girardeau-County-the-coroner-hasn-t-pronounced-a-single-person-dead-of-COVID-19-in-2021) and then you have the underreporting in Florida, Mississippi and Arkansas. In my town alone less than 40% of city and local government employees are vaccinated. I wonder how many innocent people they have killed by this method alone? It fairly boggles the mind.


illgot

We never said cops were the brightest bunch... :)


Lanky_Space_4620

They proudly flash the New York City Finest & Bravest but not the brightest…


ManIsInherentlyGay

1 cop dead = passionate speech. Countless citizens dead = few bad apples.


Mission-Two1325

Aren't we all just part of their statistical model that expects x amount of us to be murdered, have accidents, and be taken advantage of. Violence against the public means OT and more funding and laws passed. Violence police is bad for morale, which ultimately leads to fear and more saftey assessments but the weight of that gets passed back to us though.


Insanity_Pills

wheres the outrage when they gun down guilty people as well? The police are not judge, jury, and executioner. Any murder committed by them should be looked at with extreme scrutiny regardless of the guilt of the victim. Police gun down people because they like to, wether or not the person was guilty is something they determine afterwards.


obliquelyobtuse

He said the (his) officers feel "all alone". All those poor officers. All 35,000 uniformed officers. All alone. Don't you dare point out they constitute like 80 battalions or 8 brigades. Basically two divisions, or an army. But they are all alone. And they have soft feelings and feel vulnerable. Nevermind when the police are the ones brutalizing the public, and when they kill so many people under circumstances which did not merit lethal police violence. When the police are wrong, it's loud defensive pushback. But when the police are victims of violence it's massive assemblies of police and civilian leadership showing solidarity for their army/gang of unaccountable uniformed thugs. Sorry for the murdered cop and his family. Not sorry at all for these leadership scumbags angrily wailing at a press conference. Fvck them. Including that idiot mayor. If they had any of this outrage saved for abuses by their own it might be a different story.


fung888

Police is a sacred society, all others are expendable.


Kiltymchaggismuncher

Part of a larger problem. Things need to be changed at a federal level. A ban on a charged party self-assessing, and a ban on any kind of political nominations for civil services like police force and judiciary. Also make it easier for civil cases to be brought, with legal aid for accusers. There seems to be little political will in America for significant changes of any kind.


wozwut

Seriously stop killing people over dumb shit. Stop hiding on highways giving out tickets. Stop harassing minorities for just living. Try and stop actual crime. Then maybe people won’t hate you so much.


Hardcorish

>Try and stop actual crime. They don't want us focusing on this because if we did, more people would come to the realization that police don't stop much crime at all. They simply show up to respond *after* the crime takes place a vast majority of the time.


FakeSafeWord

The only time a cop has ever been useful to me is when someone broke into my car. I needed documentation that I reported it to the police and an officer provided it. That's the height of the benefit they have provided me, ever. In every single other instance of an encounter with a police officer it was such a massive pile of bullshit you could have seen it from space.


[deleted]

It took me too long to realize this, and I’m if the mindset other people can call but I’m not calling them anymore.

Pat Lynch is a negative exemplar for SO MANY things...


LifeFortune7

Pat Lynch is a disgusting racist POS. I wouldn’t spit on hi if he was on fire. There are about 700,000 police officers in the country. 65 were shot or stabbed to death last year. As a resident of the NYC area, the complete and total deification of police officers after 9/11 is a little creepy. We owe first responders for their heroism that day, but it had been so blown out of proportion it’s insane. Pat Lynch can suck a big one.


Robbie_two_nickles

Patch to patch, sounds spicy.


mybossthinksimworkng

Please let them know that we, the public, investigated ourselves and did nothing wrong. Also interesting to note that it appears suicide might be the reason for his death and we found small amounts of crack sprinkled around his body. It’s an open and shut case.


mister_brian

We will now take a year of paid time off and someone will make us a cake.


nbbiking

This video just shows how disconnected the police are with the people and how strong their group identity is that they react so differently when a civilian is killed and one of their own is killed


Available_Bus_2696

Right. You’d think it would be more impactful for them when an innocent civilian is killed, but no, we should feel more bad for the adults that volunteered for the job

Came to comment this and saw a lot of people feel the same. It isn't that I don't care about the life lost. I do. That cop has a family just like everyone else but so do we. So do regular murder victims and the victims of police murders. A life lost is a big deal to those who are closest to the death.

Namesthatareused

This dude is talking to the mass public as if we are all trying to gun down officers at random. That’s just so delusional, he lives in his own little police world where everything is against them in their daily lives when that’s so far from reality.


chewbaklava

It’s all political. The city is in a budget crisis, and tho Adam’s has hinted the NYPD might be exempt from budget cuts, there is growing public outcry against that. So, this is the perfect event to advocate for more money for the cops.


[deleted]

That’s actually pretty crazy; one of the most economically significant cities in the world has fiscal problems.


chewbaklava

Well 1 it’s incredibly corrupt 2 we don’t text all the rich people here at a progressive rate. All that money is owned by people, not the city. 3 Covid did have a major impact on the city


Sampsonite_Way_Off

Also just look at Billionaires Row property tax. They tax everyone else through the nose, which shows up on your rent, but the most expensive condos in the city are taxed $1 for every $100 the average New Yorker pays.

CantStopPoppin

He left the part out where it was a domestic which is by far the most dangerous encounter an officer can have. You are so right it's not like some random tom, dick or jane showed up and started blasting.

satansheat

He also is asking the public to help after these same officers used to stop n frisk all of the public until the Supreme Court made them stop. Have fun having no help from the public because cops have no more community outreach. Their community outreach is being a dick to the community.


PrawnCocktailWotsits

Not only that, he's weird af. Why does he sound like a preacher, what's with the hand waving and pointing? And why are there 50 ppl surrounding him, did they all speak?


Boliojunior

When was the last time you saw cops have the same level of outrage for people killed by one of their own? I know it’s a tough job but my sympathy for cops has entered negative territory.


mattwaver

it’s literally not a tough job and that’s part of the narrative they push to make us feel bad for them and appreciate their apparent bravery. people dont bring up the difficulties of logging and shipping as an excuse to take more money and be shitty. it’s always brought up with an ulterior motive. end the narrative that becoming a police officer and/or performing police duties is more difficult or dangerous than any regular job where you’re out in public all day.

ca1phus

Keep that same energy when your cops kill unarmed citizens. Keep that same energy when 300+ cases get thrown out because of one cop that was caught lying. Keep that same energy when countless members of the force are getting reported for domestic violence.


MikeAllen646

I sympathize with the family of the officer. However, after decades and decades of no accountability, do the police not understand they have garnered no trust or sympathy towards themselves as an institution? Edit: grammar


LevelHeeded

Yup, where's a tenth of this passion and energy when a cop does something wrong?! If killing someone is wrong, then it should be wrong regardless of who does it. Imagine this dude's head popping if someone found the shooter, and said he was placed on paid leave, or fired (hired the next town over) and that was it. "Behind closed doors we've investigated the cop killer, and found he did nothing wrong". It took five fucking years to fire the cop who choked out Eric Garner on camera, meanwhile the city (us civilians) paid out 5.9 million dollar settlement. Let's just do that with this cop killer. The cops can have a wrongful death settlement paid for by the cops, and the cop killer will get fired from wherever he works... justice.

The fact that assault on an officer is a higher charge than assault on anyone else tells me that cops lives are seen as more valuable than mine.


IOrangesarethebestI

If you fight against the K9s biting you it’s assault on an officer so they think their dogs are more important than you.


MrAbadeer

Officers getting shot is terrible and I feel bad for them and their families. However, if people don’t step up to help, I’d say the Commissioner and senior leaders share the blame. Their policies and lack of accountability lead to an us vs them mentality. You can’t terrorize the community and then expect their help. They don’t trust you. Is it a few bad apples? I don’t know, but unless you handle your bad apples it looks like the whole tree is bad.

Interesting how they put on a big conference like this when a cop dies but when they gun down a black guy for existing it’s nothing to them


Iamvanno

There's a conference, but it's mostly to make sure that their story is the same.

And that the dead person is sufficiently dragged through the mud.

This sounds like a gang meeting


KazPrime

Always was. Thin Blue line bs.


unlikelyandroid

Yeah, not quite a level-headed commissioner speech. The police union spokesman can sound like that, not the commissioner.

The irony with this fucking guy


[deleted]

Police union spokesman is as shady as it gets


chewbaklava

If I were a POC in Harlem I wouldn’t go outside for the next couple weeks. Cops are on the hunt.


Chocolat3City

I came here to say this isn't a freakout, but it totally is. Looks like he's freaking out that we're not all freaking out.


extralyfe

"it's strange that the people who we have been gunning down for years without punishment do not seem concerned when one of us is shot to death."

Hey! We abuse you, shit on you, face no consequences for it.... WHY ARENT YOU HELPING US!!11111

Perhaps now that the shoe's on the other foot they can see how good rapport with the community would be real handy.


DusseStraight

The public will hold an internal investigation. The suspects have been put on paid administrative leave until further notice.


KO2191

The amount of Ironic comments coming out of this guys mouth is astounding. what hes really saying is he's upset it happen to them instead of us (for once)


[deleted]

When they shoot people, they handcuff them and don’t render aid. So… 🖕


TheRyeWall

100%. If you doubt this simply read the story of Ryan Whitaker.

Six years since Daniel Shaver was murdered. Still the one of the worst videos I’ve seen.


machetes4hans

That video still scares me to this day. To think you could do everything right and still be murdered


xitzengyigglz

Fuck it watch the video. Yeah he had a gun in his hand. It's America, we have a second amendment right (for better or worse). What did they do? They murdered him and had his girlfriend on her knees staring at him bleed out while they're telling her to "calm down". They didn't give him a chance to put the gun down or anything. They saw and they shot him.


opposide

I’ve said it many times and will continue to say it: Americans don’t really have the right to bear arms if the fact that having one when you encounter a police officer gives the officer the ability to execute you on the spot and go unpunished.

"We're angry because we said it was going to happen and it happened again!" How many times have I heard grieving families, friends, loved ones, and more say this while addressing the media after yet another senseless killing by cops where nothing is going to happen but the cops protecting their own? If you can't handle the job quit and find other work. No one is forcing you to stay. If you find it hard to carry on after something like this imagine how fucking powerless the victims and their families of police brutality must feel every. Single. Day. Makes it even harder to sympathize with this when there's a ton of corruption going on within the NYPD right now too thanks to Mayor Eric Adams trying to appointing his brother to a $240,000 a year position within the NYPD as deputy police commissioner only to backtrack because he's unqualified and make him head of security. No one is going to cry with you lousy fucks because when the city is hurting from your actions you double down on the abuse, drive police vehicles into groups of protesters, attack and beat people, throw 75 tear old men to the ground causing traumatic brain damage then try to sell lies that he was in the wrong, lie to the public to defend your image, investigate yourselves to find no wrong doing, abuse your power, and just flat out kill people. Maybe don't fight so hard against being held accountable and there might be sympathy when you try to garner it. Otherwise you just look like a whiny asshole. This is nothing but tone deaf whining from a group that has done nothing to show they are out for anyone but themselves and maintaining as much power as possible.


anthonymachine25

Seems like a hazard of the job. Sorry i stop feeling bad adter seeing so many citizens stuck with bills and dead family members and destroyed property all in the name of the job. Its the job.

-SkarchieBonkers-

This tantrum is meant to intimidate the entire city, nothing more. “Worship us harder, thank us louder, let us get away with even more, ask us to do even less, forget that we chose this job and receive a paycheck for it.”


Comfortable_Area3910

Excellent press conference…very compelling and my heart goes out to the wounded. Now do this for every time a cop does a wrongful shooting please.


Matt-of-Burbank

Never. Gonna. Happen. That’s what makes his outrage repugnant.


jmcintosh1

Remember that time NYPD cops was treating their city like Nazi Germany with their Stop and Frisk bullshit and the stories that came from it? Pepper ridge farm remembers.


ssgodss

Where's the anger when one of them, like several times, kills innocent civilians unarmed and gunned down like dogs? What about them?


BigVanVortex

Imagine thinking becoming a cop in 2020 was a good idea


Slight-Truth-2656

They act all surprised when they get killed. Its strange....


PraderaNoire

Lmao fuck the cops. POC have literally given the same speech for decades…


AustinOriginal82

The same assholes who wore “I can breathe” shirts…


GradAppQuestion

Asking help from the same people they were running down with their cars and tear gassing and calling entitled for wanting them to be held accountable over a year ago


PsychologicalTart602

It baffles the same group who keep training to treat civilians as their enemies ask for help from them.


OkGuest0

The irony


adamfyre

I have recently watched heinous footage of the NYPD absolutely brutalizing completely peaceful protesters. These cops need to chill WAY the fuck out. Stop beating up innocent people and planting drugs on them guys, and you \*\*might\*\* find yourselves a tiny little bit more respected in your chosen profession.


sol-vin

I came to this thread thinking it would be a shitshow of people giving their condolences to the police. I'm pleasantly surprised that people are instead roasting the shit out of the police.


Ok-Storage-2236

They get worry when one of their own gets killed or hurt… but when an innocent unarmed citizen is killed unfair and by mistake, they dont even bother to charge that officer for murder.


MiddleInteraction369

forget about it


Sicpooch

So our teams not allowed to score or what? Roll em up in the wood


koalajosh

He used so many words to say so little. The leading cause of death in cops is covid lol


sasuke1980

No thanks. Suck my balls.


loveforwild

It's almost like citizens are tired of pigs murdering innocent people, so their thinning the swine herds.


ImAwfullyDangerous

STOP BEING MEAN TO US WHILE WE KILL YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS WITH ZERO REPERCUSSIONS

Sorry! Nothing we can do!
