It’s weird they finally found a chance to act swiftly. Glad they did but I can’t put my finger on what’s different from this and the hundreds of other cases that never get charges filed.
Like I said, weird.
This is so dumb. They've built up how bad it is for a week and everyone there is going to be ready to riot. It won't even be spontaneous. Just put the shit out asap, don't have a week long build up for it like it's a primtime special.
But what about those sweet, sweet ratings?
Also, since Georgia is rolling out the heavy artillery to deal with the Cop City protestors, we should be on the lookout for some pretty shocking stuff from there. I'm getting a real Tiananmen Square vibe from that.
The public has a right to know what happened but releasing a video of a guy getting beat to death seems wrong to me.
To know what happened you need to see the video. You have to actually face these things in order to understand how fucked up everything is.
ya but if it was my dad or brother, I don’t want the public watching his death. It’s humiliating like a public execution and most people are watching for the morbid curiosity not because they want structural change to be enacted
Would Emmett Till’s death be considered significant if his mother had chosen to have a close casket funeral? The whole point of this is that it shows people just how far police violence can go and that the horror stories that they hear are true.
His family has seen it and iirc they demanded it be released.
We’ve moved up my school’s basketball games from tonight to right after school this afternoon. Everyone’s bracing. Rumor is you can hear Tyre Nichols’s neck snap in the video
I think that kidnapping is the craziest charge against these cops.
News report also said he was yelling out for his mom
The scorpion unit they were in sounds eerily similar to the gun trace task force, just from some of the reporting I've seen
I feel like the classic Friday afternoon bad news dump is probably not the best idea in this situation
Fox News gets to play the black boogeymen as cops? It white trash Christmas. "See, there are no good ones. Thry've corrupted our sweet, honest police departments."
People looking to be destructive have a whole weekend instead of it fizzling out on a weekday when people go back to work and continue their normal weekday routine.
maybe I’m overthinking it.
I think it's the opposite. Less business will get disrupted during the weekend than the week.
maybe. Idk. Just spitballing
Not looking forward to seeing how the cries to defund police turn into somehow increasing funding and militarized training.
“Arrest video” instead of “snuff film” is a choice.
They let it build for a week and then people have nothing to do for 2 days. It's not a case of sliding in something nobody was expecting and hoping it doesn't gain traction and everyone has moved on by Monday. It's been a front page story for a week and now they are releasing the video in prime time.
Can probably send her a link to the last 200 or so pages of this thread.
If she'd like another data point of shitty police & jurors
Couldn't remember the name of that Maryland one but yes sounds a lot like it.
I think it's that and to get more resources in place to limit damage from it.
lol get fucked twitter
evil thrives in the dark.
That literally already happened and the president was one of the people leading the charge on iT
Every fucking politician in this country is in favor of Black Death at the hands of hands of government agents
it ain’t just a right wing thing
CaneKnight I'm definitely not trying to say it would be the first time. I guess I could have said I'm not looking forward to it happening again.
So who’s going to release the video first? The Memphis police departments Twitter page? Strange times we live in.
I should probably log off the internet for the night.
well ya but all 5 guys got charged with murder. This isn’t a cover up
CNN is showing it right now
as a POC myself I need to see the carnage the men in blue can cause that words simply can’t get across to me, my son needs to see what police can do to him and to be vigilant of these pigs…..words from a CNN article doesn’t hit you as hard…..there is a reason why the saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words” or else the severity of what these monster murders are doing wouldn’t hit the same as a new article
FOP throwing them under the bus. They never do this
So straight harassment and murder
How bad is it
when did I say it was a cover up? This isn’t the extent of police brutality. I’m saying you shine a light on all of it. You release everything you have and can. Because, they’ve been fired and charged doesn’t mean you don’t release the videos.
They're showing the whole thing. So far it looks like they pulled him over for no reason. They pulled him out of the car and threw him to the ground. He was calmly trying to talk to them and they said he was resisting so they started kicking him and tasing him. He got up and ran. They haven't shown the worst part yet(when they catch him). The cops are out of shape pieces of shit though so far.
I really wish it wasn't 5 black cops so it'd feel more like progress for them to be fired and charged so quickly and for the FOP to not support them bc this honestly feels more like 5 black cops being thrown to the wolves when we've seen the system try to protect countless white cops in the same situation.
Not excusing their actions at all, just judging the difference in reactions from the ghouls that normally protect cops.
FOP would defend the Holocaust
i've never seen one where everyone in cop circles is saying its too far
I’ll add to this. Growing up where I did my friends would tell me what cops would do to you. So I knew from an early age i didn’t need to see videos to understand their evil. So to me it’s not just about people from our communities but for people who don’t know or understand why we hate and fear cops. Sadly we need those in the majority to be allies to help enact change.
This cop is saying “I hope they stomp his ass” on his bodycam fucking pussy
I’ve got my ass beat by 4 cops for no reason in 1999 pre camera phones or body cams and when they realized they fucked they left me on the street and bounced I was left with no recourse fuck these guys everyone needs to see it
