"It's just good to get a guy like this off the streets," said local police captain Joe Herkins. "And force him to think about what he's done while cashing a paycheck in a tropical paradise somewhere. He'll just have to oppress minorities without a gun for a few months and see how he feels about his actions after that."
The anti-social madman was forcibly given an all-expense paid vacation after managing to murder an unarmed black man, due process, and the integrity of the entire American justice system during a single, routine traffic stop.
The former playground bully, who now belongs to a national gang of superpredators responsible for countless slayings and who are known to be well-equipped with military-grade weaponry and vehicles, will thankfully be kept from prowling the streets for the small amount of time it will take him to get a wicked-nice tan.
But with his connections in high places and a strong no-snitching culture shared by fellow gang members, legal experts -- and others who have given up hope -- expect him to not only serve hard time under the hot sun of scenic Cancun, Mexico, but most likely also be legally forced by his superiors to sight see and finally visit all those places he's always wanted to check out but never really had the time to because of work.
Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
Far, far, far too many "previouslies".
That's weird. Don't you have Asians and 'spanics to do the beating white cops won't do in San Fran?
Yes, we urgently need criminal justice reform. Yes, police brutality and impunity are sickening.
No, hateful words like these aren't helping:
> national gang of superpredators
Police depts are independent local orgs that do vital and often thankless work.
Some cops are racist; some of them should not have gotten the job; and certain police departments have systemic problems.
But to paint the entire profession as a "national gang of superpredators" is inaccurate and counterproductive.
After the events in Dallas just a few hours ago, that sentiment seems tasteless.
Remember when you wrote about the "extremely tolerant police work" the SFPD did?
Most cops are decent ppl.
#notallcops (except actually all cops, since the "decent" ones don't seem to have any particular interest in policing the indecent ones)
As soon as you let us know which cops are decent and which aren't, and as soon as you give us a test to predict when a cop is about to become indecent, I'll quit painting cops in generic terms based on well-documented behavior.
The test for decent cop is pretty simple: decent cops don't maintain the blue wall of silence.
decent cops are rats!
The problem is that from a lot of people's perspectives, it's almost always safer to assume that a police officer is going to do the wrong thing, and be protected by the system.
Shoo, tone troll! Shoo! Shoo!
We need to get rid of the cops so regular white folks like me get back into the off hours hobby of dispensing justice, as in the good old days. It was certainly a lot more orderly.
Matt Damon is looking gooood!
