Well, he was telling the truth.
Pile Driving Miss Daisy
This Georgia State or Georgia Southern?
Honestly I don’t remember that at all
Oh yes who could ever forget that story
Georgia Southern, story was shady the whole time
I mean, duh.
Aviary shitty situation
Far and away your best pun work
You’re phenomenal at these. Midas we’ll make you the official pun king of TMB.
Should get 100+ likes
fuck those cops
that "humorous" exchange just goes to show you their primary concern was ruining this kid's life
How the fuck is cocaine going to just stick to a moving car hood?
Didn't they say it was on the seal of where the washer fluid spit out?
i'm not a drug trafficker per se, but when I do traffic it I like to keep it on the hood of the car I'm driving around every day
It’s obviously the new way to traffic small amounts of cocaine
It's a shitty way of doing it then
That’s so fucking stupid. He should sue the shit out of those Barney Fifes.
Just the wildest thing to assume a white substance that is on the hood of the car is cocaine.
ACAB, also being a cop has to rate the lowest out of all professions on the IQ scale
I work at a SAAS company that sells to recruiters/talent sourcers. Very dumb people. very dumb.
How do we raise it?
It turned pink!!!!!
Which ones pink?
Thats worse than I imagined. Fuck that cop.
"That's a lot of bird poop." - Cop
No shit. You live in south Georgia. Ain't you ever parked under a tree for a day or two before in the summer.
Haven’t you ever heard of hiding in plain sight? Duh
It turned pink. Arrest that cokehead bird.
The charges were dropped before the test even came back clean.
Fuck that cop
Fuck those cops
Probably the first time a Georgia Southern student didn’t have cocaine on them in the history of that school to be honest
Require a college degree
Not that it raises it much, but some. That little bit can matter a lot, too.
I’m actually all for increased education for PD and Fire. However, you already don’t have people rushing to be cops, especially now. So it’s a part of a solution, but it also shrinks your pool even smaller.
Pay them more. It's stupid they make so little money. Make it an attractive career and give real requirements to it, it would cost way less than it would benefit society.
On the DL: the government doesn't want cops to be smart so this will never happen. For the exact same reason a college degree gets you a ticket to OTS in the military. College teaches you to question authority.
Then we better keep hiring white supremacist or that might make our pool of candidates to harass and terrorize the general public even smaller as well.
What in the world are you saying? I’m not against any possible improvement to raise police standards. I’m simply drawing light to possible issues in getting to a better place.
Do they not offer educational assistance of some sort? I could see putting forth some plan where, as part of becoming a cop or whatever, you get a certain amount of money to go towards getting a degree. That way they aren't limiting themselves to college graduates, people who don't typically go to college to become cops.
Are you talking about an incentive? Yes, many PDs and FDs offer assistance after getting hired, but it’s really bullshit degrees. Many also don’t even bother, even with a financial incentive like a raise. I also think people who want some real reform would like to see the actual pre-hire certification become a four-year degree.
I don't mean as an incentive, I mean as a requirement to be hired one would have to do it. If they don't start it within a year or two then they are moved to desk work exclusively.
Or maybe lose your job.
It's been hilarious to see the older white part of our fanbase sloooowly start to get that black men in this country aren't treated the same by LEOs but then quickly fall back on "well they were just crooked small-town cops, police are mostly good and definitely don't adhere to a Blue Wall of Silence."
If you want to argue that the number of bad cops outnumber the good ones, than I would love to read the research done on this subject.
I believe the number of shitty cops is way higher than it should be, but understand shitty people exist in all walks of life. Bankers, teachers (shit check out the thread on teachers sleeping with their students), etc.
Shitty people should never be condoned and I believe body cameras are doing a shit ton of good to identify those who aren’t fit to wear the uniform and those who need to be removed.
However I would love to read any research which studies and concludes the number of cops who don’t uphold the law, out number those who do. Unless this is just your bias.
He didn't say bad cops outnumber the good ones. That said, the "good cops" sure as shit go out of their way to go to bat for and protect the "bad ones." Hence his reference to the Blue Wall of Silence.
You were inadvertently putting words into Pile Driving Miss Daisy 's mouth there. Unless that's just your bias.
I did not imply that there are more bad cops than good cops, but the problem is the "good cops" who may not outright treat citizens differently based on their race still do no where near enough to speak out against actual racist and violent cops because of a fear of retaliation and going against the Thin Blue Line. If you don't think that this isn't a huge widespread problem then you're being willfully ignorant.
No that’s my misunderstanding. I admit that fully.
Specifically this comment.
My perception was he was making the point it was hilarious to see people arguing that it’s mostly just crooked small town cops who do stuff like this. He SEEMED to be making the statement that police ARENT mostly good. Which led me to infer he was arguing police are actually mostly crooked and protected by the Blue Wall of Silence.
But I will fully admit being wrong if that wasn’t his intention.
No offense but it appears we define “bad cops” differently.
Any cop who protects other violent and racist cops, is not a good cop. So if you are saying the problem is so widespread that the majority fall into this category, than I would lean towards saying you are in fact arguing the number of bad cops out weigh the number of good cops. But that is by my definition of good vs bad.
I admit fully my bias is due to being around quite a bit of law enforcement who would never stand for that type of shit. But that is just my personal experience. I understand that may not be the reality. As said I was hoping to see any research on the numbers of cops as mentioned.
Did they do a presumptive test?
