In the middle of the fucking New York Covid pandemic, the NYPD is on the job.

I kind of want to ask Kiddo 01 "those people wearing all black and the masks: do they look like good guys or bad guys to you?" But I also don't want to scare my children.

If you have 1000 good cops and 10 bad cops, and the 1000 good cops refuse to turn in the 10 bad cops that they know are bad, how many bad cops do you have?

I swear to god, if anyone says something about "a few bad apples" while leaving out the part about spoiling the whole barrel, I'll have my boy spray them with the garden hose. Don't think he won't like it.

Nobody ever says there are a few good apples.

This implies that the rest of the apples are, at best, red delicious.

Which is perfect, because Red Delicious apples were named that as a marketing thing, while the real goal of their breed was to appear to be good, partially due to a high resistance to bruising when packed into crates and shipped.

Shameless snickering



Incidentally Atlanta's on fire too, or will be shortly. But in Atlanta's case, I think it's in the city charter for it to get burned down from time to time.

Considering that at least one police department accidentally flashbanged a child in their crib and faced no consequences despite disfiguring the tyke, I'm gonna have to rate this "oh dang, huh" on the Police Outrage Scale.

My only question is whether this is scaled up compared to the usual suppress-the-uppity national guard field trip or whether it's always looked like that but we never had live feeds from citizen journalists before.

I would also caution every shitstain cheering for this that they'd better win this time around, and win forever, because everyone's identity and reaction will be known to near future AI. There will be no slipping your human mask back on when the dust settles.

Castle Super Beast (of all people) highlighted this thread on studies of what does and doesn't work for policing reform. Specifically, moar cameras and better training, the things always rolled out in response to these events, do nothing. Anyone proposing those in 2020 is just looking to distract you. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1180 ... 32224.html

The Punisher's true super power: Being able to peel a sticker off a car that cleanly.

I like how they specify they're in a "group" and "not the whole force" supports the Punisher.

"Not all cops" is important to people because if you don't say it then maybe all the cops who just look the other way constantly are also bad?
