I know dude, but the facts are what they are. And yeah dude, I live in a small town/suburb in Miami and I'm best friends with the chief of police's son, the dude's great, really nice guy. Some of his staff are huge assholes though, and some aren't, some are pretty neat.

Now, when I leave the town suburb and go downtown, holy shit are they fucking crazy. And yeah dude, sorry but that's the fact, the links I sent you aren't made up shit, they legit happen real time and in big cities here like Miami, it happens way more often than it should. I'm happy that you're community is like that though and I wish all cities and towns could have police forces like the ones you described.

Now I'm not generalizing, but like I showed you in those links, shit like that happens and it happens A LOT. As you can see, I try not to be biased, but the evidence to the contrary is overwhelming and I follow a lot of "Cop watch" pages on facebook (which don't hate cops, they're just weary of them) so I constantly see articles like that and it blows me away dude. Anyways, that's really cool that you live in a town like that, but you should consider the stuff I sent you, it's not to say "fuck da police comin str8 from da underground", but it's just saying "be weary of a rising police state." Also good discussion dude, thumbed up your shit gg

Dude literally at the end of the video it says "funded by the freeway patrol media relations office" and the video starts with "based on recent media tension.."

Ofcourse they'd have to be funded by readers and viewers, that's what content creation is. And it's not like they make up statistics with no sources, you CAN SEE what's happening in each article with a video/source. And I'm not hating them blindly, I respect what they do, but the fact is that there's too many shitty policemen and people have to be cautious for their safety's sake. Did you even see the John Oliver video? There were some pretty intense clips dude.

Now, I'm not saying they're unbiased, fuck yeah they are (yours too) but they actually have evidence to back up their claims instead of broad unbacked statistics. (I mean the fact is that most, if not, all media outlets are biased). Well, what would you propose as a solution? Also you're making pretty broad generalizations mate, I myself can't propose solutions or find the root problem, but the fact is that it's shitty and shitty things are happening and people need to watch out for themselves too.

Don't get me wrong, I have no doubt that there are a lot of police officers that really do only want to protect and serve and NOT be corrupt, but again, the fact is that most systems are shitty and corrupt and the American police department is one of them. And another thing you have to look at is that nothing is black and white and laws are constantly changing, there's people that go to jail for years for having a baggie of weed on them, when in the same country people can travel with ounces on them. It's just a really dynamic and disorganized system that will need time and patience to reform itself years from now.

Also I want to put microphones/cameras on every on duty officer.

That way if/when someone challenges what they say/do, they have a recording to either back up what they wrote in a report or prove they're a lying sack of shit. That way we can eliminate a LOT of police abuse of power so they can't just write a fake report about what happened to swing it in their favor
User avatar #534 - thebigcountry (6 hours ago) [-]
I'm not supporting the officers that are corrupt or do not do their jobs either, but that shouldn't make the American people afraid of their own police force.

Where I live I know most of the day police officers by first name. I see them (Out of uniform) in the groceries store, ask them how their families are doing, and Since I work private security I see them a lot in my line of work too.

Police corruption isn't even a thought where I live so I guess it's just difficult for me to think of the police Whom I consider my neighbors and friends as corrupt and oppressive.

I know I'm biased, but it's because I'm fortunate enough to be in a community where the police aren't the huge problem the media make ALL police departments out to be. That's why it frustrates me when people generalize police as an oppressive force or just a bad entity.

I also acknowledge that there are communities that are not as fortunate as mine, but to me it's just a foreign concept to think of the police as anything other than helpful or nice.

Statistics funded by a police organization are not statistics. All that video did was provide a strawman argument.

If you can't find an unbiased source for statistics YOU'RE not worth the effort of debate. If it's so rare, why does it happen 10+ times a week? And most media outlets don't "DEMONIZE" the police, they just report. In fact alot of the time they comply with the police so they have a story.

And they wouldn't be so hated if MOST police organizations weren't so corrupted, which reminds me:

Unbiased? That's funny, coming from the guy who continues to use media outlets that are funded by readers/viewers like yourself.

I don't deny there are shitty people in law enforcement. There are shitty people in every profession. But hating them blindly leads to nothing.

I see no solutions or possible fixes coming from your "Unbiased sources" and they merely continue to state law enforcement isn't doing their job to rile up viewers. No one tries to solve the problem they only criticize the outcome.

Police officers can't possibly be trained for everything. So unless you and every anti law enforcement person out there stop whining they don't do it properly and do it yourselves, you're stuck with the people who join to do something good, stay because they want to make a difference, become jaded because they're hated, and eventually fuck up or retire.

It's not being an asshole. There's no excess of effort the police have to do when dealing people like that other than "carry on."

Also cool, there's nothing like an edgy artsy police-funded video to spread propaganda.
User avatar #497 - thebigcountry (6 hours ago) [-]
If you can't listen to statistic evidence you're not worth the effort to debate.

Statistically, police cruelty/brutality/abuse of power is very rare. People just see it all the time because the media blow it out of proportion for views.

If you want to talk about propaganda, talk about media outlets demonizing a job that is meant to help a community and is turning into a hated entity by the public for actions done by others.

I'm not judging any police officer. They are human, they have a life outside of their job, maybe they even have a family. I don't see the police as an icon of oppression and abuse of power.

I am also not a criminal. I don't do anything wrong and I don't feel like I should be treated like a criminal and forced to stop when I am not doing anything wrong. I also don't want to give up my constitutional rights that this country has fought for with countless lives.

We have a right to privacy. We have the right to remain silent. Do you agree with these two things?

You also have a right to life, the traffic stop is there to try and provide you with that.
User avatar #485 - thebigcountry (6 hours ago) [-]
The original point of my post being you can exercise those rights without acting like a dick to law enforcement.

Your rights are not at risk whether or not you exercise them respectfully or rudely because legally you are in the right.

But as I said in my original post, there are better ways to go about it than this guy did.
