The Lives Of Cops Matter Too by Mintaka-TK The Lives Of Cops Matter Too by Mintaka-TK
Related to my anti-Black Lives Matter stamp I posted the other day, when I mentioned I should make a Blue Lives Matter stamp in support of the police.

Blue Lives Matter popped up in 2014 as a pro-police movement in reaction to the murders of two officers in New York City after they were ambushed in their car. It also appeared as a hashtag against the violence in Ferguson against cops, and as criticism of Black Lives Matter.

As I've said in my anti-BLM stamp, demonising cops is wrong, as there are good cops and bad cops throughout the world, and it's a fact of human nature. And before anyone jumps on me and accuse me of being "racist", Blue Lives Matter acknowledges cops of all ethnicities and nationalities, while Black Lives Matter indulges in crocodile tears over being "oppressed" and only cares about black people.

Besides, why is it okay to devalue the lives of cops just because a minority of them do bad things? Remember, officers aren't faceless goons or anything. They do have family and friends that care about them, just as much as those killed by police brutality do. Writing off all cops as scumbags just makes you look like a petty criminal (if you aren't one already), and anyhow, you never know when you need the help of the police...

The annoying part is when people only take one side and hold a death grip on it. Yeah some cops might 

Yeah, some cops might end up killing black peeps, but the vast majority of those cases are due to the location being sketchy as all hell. Cops are good men that put their lives at risk for the good of everyone. A cop would approach anyone from a poor area with caution, it's just how they're trained. Drugs and other illegal substances are just far more common in places with high poverty... And rather sadly, a lot of families in poverty are black... Do to the not to distance past labeling them as another species that were far from equals, their families just didn't get all that much of a good rep. So yeah, it can be harder for some guys to get higher up jobs, and that's just due to our history. Rather people realize it or not, people do tend to lean to their own race above others. It's just something that happens in nature mixed with schemas we get when growing up. It sounds a little fucked up, but it's true.

Not saying that all cops are good, some aren't properly trained or have a massive bias against black people. But that is like one in a million...
But that is like one in a million... A good chunk of the issues arises from misunderstandings or people being overly paranoid...

I like this stamp!~
My Uncle works for the police and he has to go through a lot every day~
But when the "Black Lives Matter" group had gotten involved in a town
near he and I was, They killed almost all of his friends and partners...
Luckily he wasn't there and had to work a shift over, but knowing that
one of those policemen could of been him... Made me all the more
pissed~
I like this stamp, and I'm glad you made it~
I support the people who protect us, the people who there

I`m an anarchist so no,blue lives don`t matter.If you attach yourself to a hierarchical institution,then by definition you are somewhat culpable for the actions of others within that institution particularly if you enable and make excuses for the corrupt,violent or abusive behavior of others within that institution as far too many cops do.

I see the Police only as a shield against total chaos.
But in the form of [X]LM business, the truth is clear.
No lives matter.
They never have, and they never will.
Every minute of every day that we exist is a meaningless attempt at trying to be something.

Blue Lives don't Matter. I don't mean they shouldn't deserve respect, but there is no movement necessary for them. They are not targeted peoples of oppression or prejudice, usually regardless of race. They are often highly respected by a number of people in society. They are blue 40 hours a week, not a POC 24/7.

the fact that you would use that as an argument to deter white-on-black crime proves enough lol. black people don't kill other black people on the premises of them being black lmao

in case you cant read, i said im not denying white on black crimes. its a serious issue. anyone killing anyone is serious. white on black, black on black, anyone vs anyone. stop saying white on black is the only serious one we need to be worried about because statistics say otherwise.

I'm not going to explain my opinions on why a movement for Blue Lives and such is utterly useless. The liberals and millennials hate police officers, but for the most part, anyone that qualifies underneath #BlueLivesMatter is generally respected by the majority of the public. There is no systematic oppression of prejudice against them, this includes the intersectionality of POC police force. BLM is often misrepresented and does do things that are detrimental to their cause, but the conceptualism behind should be valued. You shouldn't say "Blue lives matter!" or "All lives matter!" when someone discusses their support for the fundaments of BLM [not necessarily the execution of BLM], which quite literally go as following: "Please treat us with intrinsic value". I quite honestly don't give two shits what my opinion has done. In the end, you're still going to continue pretending as if "I have black friends!" will suffice as an excuse for disliking the fundaments of BLM, and I'm still going to regret typing this all out in the next five minutes. Please just continue onward with your life instead of being angry that POC are beginning to do what Caucasians have done always throughout history - fight back, violently. Have a shitty day.

Oops, you actually did say your opinion on it! in hard-to-read cutesy text!
Look, you don't seem to get ~~~why~~~ i dislike it. you get that i do, but you don't get that i do <3
it's because they're bashing on policemen and whites and it's fucking horrible :L
Well, firstly, you can still matter without being oppressed, what?? how? i thought that only blacks mattered. well turns out. not rlly. just because blacks get oppressed, doesn't mean that non-blacks (and blacks themselves) can actually be really nice? wow?
i'll tell u why #bluelivesmatter is respected
~because police officers are always told 'pos are shit' etc etc non-stop, which is why it's going around. :lol:
~because sometimes people care about lives other than their own
~because police are extremely fucking important. if it wasn't for them, who knows what would happen.
~they don't demonise non-policemen-and-women, like black lives matter does to whites and police officers.
also? having black friends isn't my excuse
i literally have black friends, white friends, asian friends
i was saying about how it's not blacks i hate, it's the #blacklivesmatter stuff, with. you know.

glot,ij demonising people who are not black.

i'm not angry. it was your choice to get offended over something that, really, really isn't even something you can get offended by. 

'Have a shitty day'
wow, i'm so sad. #crievertim

in conclusion;
-it's not a bad thing, they're not oppressed, but they're being bashed on by members of public. 
-why
-???

So the lives of cops don't matter? Sure a job is not comparable to skin colour, but still, someone has to do it. Their lives still matter. You sound like a typical BLM supporter.

i stood with BLM initially. it was a good concept, and of course black lives matter. 

but it's grown into something horrid and grotesque where rioters riot for the sake of rioting. where other tragedies are put down in favour of black tragedies - and they made it perfectly clear that a lot of the group actually do support the fact that ONLY black lives matter.

which is racist as fuck even if you say "white people can't be oppressed" - because it takes away from the tragedies that happen to asian people. it takes away from the tragedies that happen to latino people. it takes away from the tragedies that happen to hispanic people. native americans. the aboriginal population of australia. it all becomes irrelevant in favour of blackness: and a cast of all black characters in a movie is just as bland and samey as a cast of all white characters. 

it's gotten to the point where black policemen trying to feed their families are seen as traitors, where lgbta+ cops are openly told they can't attend pride due to their professions. 

should the cops that step out of line be punished more accordingly? definitely. guy who shot a 12 year old boy with a toy pistol? should be fired and sentenced to 15 years jail for killing an innocent kid. but pushing all cops out of all spaces, even spaces they belong in, is just going to pile up until a crime riot occurs and shit hits the fan real fast.
