Anti-Police Brutality by Mintaka-TK Anti-Police Brutality by Mintaka-TK
Requested by AdrenalineRush1996.

I've talked about police brutality (and its relation to Black Lives Matter, to go there again) before, but it's only just now that I've been prompted to make a stamp about it.

Police brutality is unnecessary, an abuse of power, and tarnishes the reputations of forces. Of course, I'm not saying that cops don't have the right to defend themselves or use force against criminals as long as it's within reason. Just being brutal for the hell of it makes yourself and the entire police look bad (and is also the reason why groups like Black Lives Matter think it's okay to try and attack all cops.)

That's why I joined #AllLivesMatter. But even if this group does attack all cops and k-9s I won't .

Lesson for the corrupt police: Don't beat up someone who isn't showing violence. You'll just give yourself a bad rep. Unless the person has a gun or is showing very violent behavior, don't beat them up so badly that they break an arm or something... Seriously, some people.

I've noticed that American police just run out and point their guns and our police just walk up to the driver without any weapons in their hands - until the 'offender' actually tries to shoot them.

mostly because in America, as of now as a police, you always have to be on edge because there will be those people who will shoot first, or attack you simply for being a police. And most of the videos of police raising their guns first are taken in extremely sketchy/ghetto areas where a lot of drug deals/violence happens. In normal places, they usually don't raise their weapons unless the other person has a weapon/is doing an extreme crime like theft, murder, etc.
There are corrupt police out there though

According to a survey, Hispanics and Asians (and some native americans) are more likely to be targeted by police officers than African Americans.
But Hispanics and Asians aren't black, so who cares about them?:sarcasm:

well, it is difficult to tell sarcasm from things you actually mean, especially on the internet.

I'm against police brutality but I'm not against officers doing whatever it takes to fullfil their assigned role in the line of duty (which is to keep the peace and bring justice to those who are in the wrong or commit wrongdoing in the eyes of the law).

Well, I have already seen on the TV some videos of policemen beating an already knocked out demonstrator. It looked more like murder than law enforcement.

I'm against both because both are acting like kids. Police act like bullies thinking they can use a gun and threaten people and preach their 'self defense' I remember this one case when in the poor guy said he had a damn gun wasn't doing anything other than that and was shot instantly by the cop for just saying he had a gun. The officer was praised for his courage, which makes me sick. The black lives matter are harassing police and giving them reasons to attack back.

I'm surprised I haven't seen any "Says the Blue Lives Matter person!" comments yet.

Great post, and great comments. Clap 
I am very surprised to not see trollers, they usual rush to meet their quota for these posts. 

I think that our officers need to have different training, mental evaluations, and community service hours in the community that they are stationed in before they become officers. 

And what bugs me most about the entire thing is the Blue Wall of Silence--forget that. If you are a good cop and you see a cop mess up or witness the actions of a bad cop, speak up and against them. That silence makes everyone who wears the uniform look bad.

welll...
i am against blm, and i am against the police...
but seriously, the whole hatred against the police now seems to me more of a trend that was caused because of blm.
in fact, most blacks get shot by other blacks.
why does the police get more brutal? because the things they fight get more brutal.

of course, and not that you misunderstand me, you cant just look at all policemen and say they are all the same. that is as stupid as if i said, "every member of blm is just a violent riot"

They blame animals for it too. I saw a police K-9 being outright kicked. Kicked in the face so badly that she needed surgery to have her left eyeball extracted. Why the animal?

Some years back my brother got arrested (he was later found innocent and released), the police harassed him, spit in his face, stomped on his chest, and smashed his face on the concrete breaking his jaw. Did he provoke or assault the police, try to run, or have a weapon of any kind? Absolutely not. He cooperated with them 100%. How old was he at the time?

15.

He was fucking 15, and they beat the living shit of of him for no reason whatsoever Sad Bonnie is sad [Chat Icon]

I support police, and don't really support BLM. However, I have seen some videos where the officers have the guy down on the ground, and they keep beating him. And he's not fighting back. But they keep beating him. Like uh hey you got him. You can stop beating him now.
I've seen it happen to both white and black people.

Somehow this remind me of the Mossos d'esquadra charging with weapons against a group of peaceful demonstrators in Barcelona. I agree, police brutality is horrible.

Very true. A recent report by the FBI also noted that police brutality makes the public less safe due to the backlash and the fact that people become less willing to work with the police.

When police use force to disable a violent criminal who is immediately putting the public at risk, like someone who is actually brandishing a firearm, or a terrorist, that's something the public is grateful for. But beating a defenseless man, even one who has committed a misdemeanor or non-violent crime, to near death (or death, as the case may be) has absolutely no place in a civil society governed by law.

I couldn't agree more.  Beating people for crimes they didn't commit is just unforgivable.
