And yet, look at whose commenting about race? Preemptive race pimping?
The color that matters here is a deep shade of chip on the shoulder, belligerent, overly aggressive blue. Clearly this guy thinks that being a cop
entitles him to be an asshole and assault people. Exactly the sort of mentality that cops shouldn't have.
As they were right too. What's wrong with a little pre-emptive laughter at the absurdity that some would boil this down to race. I dont know about
Outlier13 but Neo69's might not have even been pre-emptive being he resides in the area and could have already seen that playing out as I did before
this was posted here.
See that's the thing about power. The fact of the matter is that many do abuse power in all types of positions. It's been human nature for as long as
recorded history. We have too many positions of power in the world and too little people that can handle the responsibility. What do you suggest we do
though? If we have no structure, we have no civilizations, we have no "humanitarianism". If we reduce the power to fewer people we have the
possibility of totalitarianism.
The cops that are bad are not bad because they are cops, but because they are human. You call those out for the account of bringing race into it, but
display a bigoted view of a group dynamic at the same time. Race and religion shouldn't be where you're view of generalizations should end, if you're
true in your beliefs. Imo
