There is no question about it, many American police forces are our out of control and a threat to what is left of American democracy but the individual cop is another story. The men and women in blue put up with a lot of crap from the public as well as their commanders. In spite of that, most cops do their jobs quite well. I think about the crap and the assholes they have to deal with on a regular basis and then I think about speed bumps, unlocking and locking doors, having to install security lights, paying more for everything because of shoplifters and think if I were a cop I'd want to beat the shit out of some low-life criminal types.
I can't think of many good things to say about Black Lives Matters. They come across as divisive, ignorant, rude, dishonest, racist and loud. I am all about people owning their baggage.
The police need to:
Admit there are too many trigger-happy cops.
Stop policing for profit.
End the drug war.
Fire any cop who uses excessive force.
Admit they violate the constitution.
Start arresting corporate criminals.
African Americans need to:
STFU from time to time and listen.
Admit they fact that they are 13% of the population yet they are responsible for over 50% of the crime.
Admit that most of the killings of African Americans by cops are totally and completely justified.
Stop having babies out of wedlock. 70% of African American children come from a broken home and are raised by a female.
Stop blaming White people.
Stop their blind hatred for the police. Fuck the police? Fuck you to because the cops do more good than harm. I can't say the same about you.
Stop calling the POLEECE if you hate them so much.
Stop committing so much of the crime.
Police departments can be reformed. I have less hope for the African American community. When I think about how they cheered the OJ Simpson acquittal, how the rioted after the first Rodney King trial, and how they rallied around criminal thug and douche bag Michael Brown I realize that a community as dishonest, hateful and racist as the African American community will continue to self-destruct. Now you can start calling me a racist even though I am talking about a culture.
Black lives matter? Apparently, they don't matter very much to African Americans unless of course if the Black in question is a thug shot by a White cop. On the first day of the new year, African Americas in Chicago went on a rampage against other African Americans.
Black Lies Matter
African Americans would like you to believe that the only people killed by cops are Blacks. Cops kill a hell of a lot more Whites than Blacks. In fact, cops disproportionately kill more Whites than Blacks. Blacks commit most of the crime in the use and far more of the very serious crimes such as murders, assaults, and rapes so one would suppose that since cops have more criminal encounters with Blacks than White they would be killing far more Blacks than Whites as the Black Lives Matter organization would like you to believe. The truth is, cops kill more Whites than Blacks.
