Hey folks,

I see lately we have a huge influx in threads about police brutality or various other Law Enforcement issues which have arisen over the months.

I would like to know if you all think another board specifically for these things is warranted?

Great Idea!


Seems like not a day goes by that a few more reports of police brutality show up on ATS. It would be nice to have one place to look to find them all.

"Police State" would be a good title for the board, I think.

A new board like you suggest would turn into a wonderful springboard for people who need a podium to spread their anti pig propaganda. I LIKE THIS IDEA!

Yes, that would be a great board to create. It is a serious issue.

It would be a good idea to organize it, since that is pretty much the only topic I look for and talk about.

I hope it is considered...

...and this is why.

I need a place to be able to defend the once good name of law enforcement officers, and if it were organized, it would make it a lot easier.

Why is it that police brutality and law enforcement exceeding their bounds is a problem now? For DECADES you had African Americans, Latino's and other minorities being shot, beaten, hit with high pressure hoses, etc and people would tell them to "get over it", sweep it under the rug and pretend as if it never happened. However, now that you see more white kids (especially the skateboarders) being beat up by police, see white grannies being tasered and basically see that the brutality is spilling over into White America, you call it a problem.

I actually disagree, there has always been police brutality, you just didn't hear about it as much cause information wasn't so readily available as it is today.

This has nothing to do with "white" America my friend.

There has always been police brutality, but how many videos can you show me of police beating up white people, gunning down white people, using attack dogs on white people, or beating up white people after the car they've been driving has tumbled over multiple times? Again, when minorities were speaking about police brutality people believed they were whining, causing trouble, etc. Now that you see it spilling into the white community at an alarming rate, which it is, people are starting to take notice. Take a look at racial profiling and you'll see the same thing. For many years minorities said they were being singled out, profiled etc, yet few would listen. However what is happening now? Now everyone is being profiled to some extent, and people starting to complain about it.

So once again, why is all of this a problem now? You simply can't say it's because more technology is out there and people have access to more information. No, it is because it's spilling into the white community, nothing more.

i think that's a good idea. there's too many deaths in custody, too many innocent people shot, too many hospitalized... too many police armed with high tech...

cautious,

That's your opinion of the matter, and you are entitled to it and I respect that, but if you want to state that as fact then pull up some stats, show me a report or a study that says the only reason why we talk about police brutality is because "white" people have a problem.

I apologize, but ease of access has provided an overall and steady increase of stories in all venues, whether it be politics, the Military Industrial Complex, Police Brutality etc...

I understand your point and yes some people cry wolf because it's happening to them and not the minorities, but let's remember that white people are the minority now.

To tell you the truth it's a form of Karma, but that's besides the point. I wasn't arguing the idea of police brutality, I was asking for a place to put all these things together.

Perhaps then we could look and see which stories are more prevelant, the ones with minorities or the ones for whites.

Edit to add: I would love to discuss the matter further with you, but it would require it's own thread. Please feel free to create one and we can have this debate

First you should read this link as it sheds a bit of light on what I'm saying.

www.salon.com...

Next you should find the following books and read them:

ISBN: 0-03-047534-1
ISBN: 1-4292-0660-8
ISBN: 978-0791476208

All the data you could ever want and ask for are within those books (charts, cited sources, etc), and I have more where that came from.


I apologize, but ease of access has provided an overall and steady increase of stories in all venues, whether it be politics, the Military Industrial Complex, Police Brutality etc...


Technology has made it easier to capture and distribute the information, but make no mistake, the reason it is becoming more alarming is because more white people are being abused. Please read the first link I gave you, and if you can, look into the books I listed. Maybe find a pdf of them, or go to your local book store and spend some time with them.


I understand your point and yes some people cry wolf because it's happening to them and not the minorities, but let's remember that white people are the minority now.


In numbers, maybe so. When it comes to finances, ability to network, overall educational background and socioeconomic status whites are #1 in America.)


To tell you the truth it's a form of Karma, but that's besides the point. I wasn't arguing the idea of police brutality, I was asking for a place to put all these things together.


And we should have a section for this, I'm all for it.


Perhaps then we could look and see which stories are more prevelant, the ones with minorities or the ones for whites.


I'm sorry that anyone has to experience brutality, black, white, green, purple, gay, straight, muslim, atheist, christian, whatever. I do not condone it. However, I do have to look at the history this country has when it comes to police brutality and look at the current trends. This country is becoming a police state, has been becoming one for some time, and the reason people are more awake now then before is because it's spilling over into the white community.

TY, but I've yet to actually make a thread on ATS, so that would have to wait a bit.

Thank you for educating me my friend. From your sources I have to assess the situation a little better, but it seems that you are right.

What an eye opening peice of information. Then again I am not surprised though, the White Man is always finding a way to fighting things that happen to them, versus helping others.

You've been friended.

Aloshya and I both mentioned this in the what you'd like to see thread. I'm still for it. Not sure if it's exactly what you mean, but seems it would serve both purposes.

thread here

Having been in the field of security for 5 years, and now a current student in Law Enforcement, I would have to say... sure, why not. Heck, I could even step in every so often to explain the how's and why's of certain situations.
