We've arrested our first piggy in NYC for breaking the new chokehold ban.

Who started the "bad apples" metaphor for cops? It doesn't mean what they think it means.

A couple more guys got arrested for the looting and burning of the MPD 3rd precinct station. It was a pair of brothers who took video of themselves in the stationhouse, as deep in as making it to the 2nd floor, showing acts of vandalism as well as theft of MPD property and personal property, then posting their actions to social media.

Yeah, it means it spoils the whole bunch so that they ALL become bad apples, which is actually an appropriate metaphor.  This has been pointed out many times, but bootlickers were never accused of being smart.

The way this is going you are going to be licking someone’s boots.

There's no way there were 21 murders in Harlem all year.  It's possible there were 21 shootings in Harlem this year, or over a smaller period of time I suppose, but that's much different than murders.  NYC has 8 1/2 million people and maybe 300 murders a year recently, so imagine how large that 21 number is if you're only talking about Harlem, which basically consists of few blocks of brunch places where white people can drink mimosas on Sunday at noon to pretend they're "urban".


Not what Rogan was quoting but something I saw this morning.

LOL. Even the headline is hysterical. I love the fact where they pretend he’s “admitting” something as if it’s not something he’s making up himself for political reasons. This is exactly what we were talking about a few posts up. Also, not for nothing but you’d think the NYPD Commissioner would know the difference between crime and the criminal justice system. He betrays his motives by saying the latter.

This could be a life-saving app if you’re getting pulled over. I’m definitely looking into this.

I’ll download it if the morality police start patrolling the streets.

These might be the most and worst excuses ever made by someone cheering on the KKK. She somehow claims that she was chanting Black Lives Matter, doesn’t know what a confederate flag is, wasn’t even sure who’s truck she was in, and so much more. Entertaining.

This story defies belief. This is actually exponentially worse than the George Floyd killing. These fucking animal pigs should be lynched from a lamppost. Then when people try to get justice for this gentle soul, they're blocked by other pig scumbags. But I'm going overboard. It's just a few bad apples. I always thought the Kelly Thomas killing was the worse one I've read about. This one has the unenviable "honor" of being worse. Much worse.

I had a tear in my eye reading that. Couldn't watch the video.

I watched the body cam footage 

I think the choking people tactic is a bad one. If it was done based on the belief that the person was trying to grab the cop’s gun then maybe cops should leave their guns in the patrol car and carry as needed. 

I think society needs to evolve to a point where a police officer can answer a call, pull up ask questions determine real or fake issue and move on. 

Do y’all think if they pulled along side this person they could have had a conversation to determine that no crime was committed and move on? What should the cops do if a person doesn’t want to talk? Should they dismiss and move on? When should they escalate? Should seemingly pointless calls be ignored?
