11 December 2014. The Cabinet on Good Cops and Bad Cops

00 NYPD Cop and Homeless Guy. 01.12.12

______________________________

One of the Cabinet sent me this:

I entirely agree with you about most cops truly wishing to “protect and serve”… however…, I think that the country (it shows up in policing, amongst other places) is pretty screwed up when it comes to race. Basically, most of us expect the worst from our Black brethren, which becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Republicans might be happy to put all the people of colour on one end of the continent and cut them loose, but the problem isn’t going to go away until we talk more candidly about that legacy of slavery, plantation life, Jim Crow, etc. Each cop on the beat has to deal with this context as best he can, but it takes a real saint to be unaffected by the larger picture.

Most coppers are good guys… they’re doing an often-thankless job. By and large, cops are honest… unfortunately, violence is seeping through America, and the Republican Party is fostering it through extreme warmongering in foreign parts, excessive police force at home (militarisation of local cops), inordinate use of imprisonment (the USA is #1 in prisoners), and pandering to gun nutters. Libertarians are anarchists… anarchists aren’t bearded bomb-throwers in rags… they’re “respectable” banksters in suits! Anarchy is what the Republicans want… in such a system, even good men commit enormities. Ordinary people committed the Nazi war crimes… it CAN happen here, and let’s see that it doesn’t. Firstly, let’s support the good cops and stop them becoming “auxiliary soldiers”. If we don’t, our free society will become a Republican Anarchistic Libertarian Hell. It IS in our hands…

10 December 2014. I Got This Off a LEFTIST Website… Here’s What Cops are REALLY Like

I was reading this. It was a verbatim post of this. Read it… this is what most cops are like. I agree with the following:

With all the recent news reports of police brutality, this story is truly a breath of fresh air. Officer Behnam saw a family in need and went out of his way to make sure that they had the Christmas they deserved. He’s a shining example of what law enforcement should be and he deserves our praise.

‘Nuff said. Never say that lefties hate cops. We hate rogue cops and the political elements that empower and protect them. That’s something else entirely… and real cops know what I’m talking about. Real cops protect and serve ordinary folks… rogue cops protect business-suited thieves and serve moneygrubbing pols and banksters… I’d say that there’s a real difference there. One of these things is NOT like the other!

______________________________

On Saturday, the local SKP said that police seized over 8 kilos (about 18 pounds) of marijuana from a cop in Rostov Oblast. The man, a junior officer with the K-9 unit of the Rostov-on-Don police, was driving a Chevrolet Lacetti when cops stopped his car for a check. The police statement said, “Cannabis, weighting more than 8 kilos in total, was found in the trunk of his car and seized”. The officer was fired and faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.

Russian Cops March Bears Into Forest

00 bear cubs in Kamchatka. 21.09.13

______________________________

Bears in the streets and tough cops… this week, two stereotypes about Russia came together in the coal-mining region of Kemerovo Oblast when local police marched a trio of hungry bear cubs from a central town square back into the nearby woods. According to a statement from regional police, late Thursday, a local woman in the town of Beryozovsky spotted one cub “calmly strolling down the street, looking for food in the garbage bins”. Five teams of officers soon arrived at the spot, only to find three bear cubs in the courtyards of nearby buildings. Police cordoned off the area; then, they “escorted the uninvited guests into the woods. They followed the bear cubs in their patrol cars and lit the way with their headlights. The trip took more than an hour”. The police speculated that the cubs might have been the orphans of a female bear fatally hit by a freight train in July on a nearby rail line.
