it's time we talk about banning all cops on tmb
2 to 1 the driver is a cop
Woooooow at the harassment. Disgusting.
Cops suck at their job case study 9,661,189
I love how it takes 2 years and an appeal to get them to release the footage. That seems to be the norm for a lot of PD's. If the footage shows the cop doing his job, it's on the evening news the next day. If it shows incompetency and negligence, you're gonna have to engage in a protracted legal battle to get the video released to the public. Body cams don't promote transparency if you can just turn them off, or refuse to hand over footage, or say that there was a "camera malfunction".
Video footage that we literally pay for.
reminder intel officials said there'd be retribution by white supremacist groups when the proud boy got killed
and there was! just had their badges on.
LAPD union boss.
I know it was shared earlier today, but this story has me really fucked up. What are the chances that Trump himself basically ordered this guy killed without outright saying it?
can anything be done to the driver now? He can obviously lie and say he wasn’t drunk.
Dude's been a menace to society since 08 yet here we are
Perfect example of a high school incel becoming a cop so he can have some power.
Fuck qualified immunity.
The Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) has put up two billboards along Interstate 35 entering Austin after the city council voted last month to cut the Austin police budget. One of them reads: "Warning! Austin defunded police. Enter at your own risk!"
The second says, "Limited support next 20 miles," according to the association.
TMPA, the largest law enforcement association in Texas, said on Facebook it released the billboards – which include the hashtag #BacktheBlue – "to raise public awareness that Austin is a defunded city."
Spoiler: Good Reddit comment
What's funny is Austin didn't really defund much of anything. The only thing the city cut from APD is the upcoming cadet class. That's it.
The city did move some services under the purview of APD into a new department or an existing department. Two big examples are 911 services and forensics services. Now if you look at Austin's org chart they don't fall under APD and our (incompetent) Chief. I like the moves since it offers independence to crime related services that should be independent from the police. Moving 911 away from APD "defunds" it about $25,000,000 for example but the city is bumping up $25,000,000 in another department or funding a new one with that amount. It's all semantics.
The City of Austin is taking the money from the cadet class and increasing the number of other first responders such as EMS and mental health experts who will be first responders. Also the City of Austin is facing a homelessness crisis which, surprise, takes a lot of APD's time and effort. The city is helping expand homeless services which will in theory take some of the workload off our police.
Frankly I'm not too sure where this defunded news came from. Most of it is just boring ass org-chart changes. The right really ran with it being defunded and I'm guessing a few of our left-leaning city council members were also happy with the defund narrative but regardless of narrative it's highly exaggerated. Every election year Republicans look to fear monger so if this happened a year ago or next year it would have been an article or two in the local news and that'd be the end of it. APD's "defunding police" is this year's migrant caravan.
Edit: This Google Doc breaks down APD's budget. One side, "Reductions, Decoupling, and Transition" speaks of the cuts and programs decoupled from APD. As you can see $80,000,000 of the $150,000,000 cut is just taking power away from APD and moving responsibilities elsewhere. On the other side, "Reinvestments", you can see new or expanded programs.
Ofc it’s all dudes
This will be a 10/10 shit show
If that had been an episode is Reno 911 they would've shown the drug dealers getting away from the right address with large amounts of drugs as they drove by.
Unfortunately the cops couldn't figure out Google maps or do some research before driving out there
So now they're trying to fight for Portland?
The potus advocating for murder and no push back from a judge
democracy is dead
Honestly, President and Judge are literally the lowest sense of the word in both cases. Both could use
$163k salary, jury of 8 finding him innocent of wrong doing, promotion later on all for that trigger discipline
I thought this took place in 1969 and not 2020
Damn that's crazy. Hope the guy is caught so maybe we find out what prompted it.
eh, we know what prompted it. people are tired of feeling like victims and suffering under a system designed to kill or imprison them, that's really all there is to it. we've spent centuries backing POC up into a corner, when they feel like there's no more space to move backwards then there's only one direction they can go.
Scroll up to read the whole thread. I know the police are on high alert with the shooting of 2 cops in LA but this can’t happen. The video and story in the above tweets for the whole thread spell out that this is a person empathizing with the police shot. This is how the police create more and more people disliking and distrusting them. The only difference between now and 10-15 years ago is that the camera phone has brought to light the behavior that many of us have not seen in person. It’s also brought to light irrefutable evidence of police lies because their cover stories many times are blown up by videos showing wildly different shit went down.
fuck the guy who shot 2 cops. Fuck these cops also.
It could be that simple or those two cops specifically could have done something to the guy.
this sadly is how public trust eroded further and puts more cops lives in danger
which wouldn’t invalidate what Sir Phobos said. Moreover what he said isn’t “simple” it’s decades of systematic abuse. What’s sad is we don’t know anything about the shooter and the cops but we are still willing to give the shooter a benefit of the doubt.
South Dakota seems like a worthless state filled with assholes. That’s all I’ve got
