Just in case it wasn't clear, the video I posted was a different case of police brutality, not my BFF Dougie

I don't think anyone's watched the above video. I implore you to take the 37 minutes to watch it.

Brutality n illegal stuff def happens but I don't hate cops like so many do. I think those ppl are hypocrites. Not directed at smeen at all just my feelings about cops and maybe life experiences form opinions

That's my opinion too, over here anyway. Discussed it with Deej before. A lot of people who seem to hate them have actually had next to no contact with them at all.

^^ These are the sorts that usually whinge about how bad they are, try to get smart/give the police the runaround and are then surprised/outraged when they get stuck in the back of a car and taken to the station .

“There can happen no breach of covenant on the part of the sovereign; and consequently none of his subjects, by any pretence of forfeiture, can be freed from his subjection.”

-Hobbes

some dude paraphrasing Hobbes:

"Whatever the state does is just by definition. All of society is a direct creation of the state, and a reflection of the will of the ruler."

"The concept of just use of force is meaningless or cannot be known. Just use of force is whatever force is authorized."

"You conceded your rights to the government, in return for your life."

Locke versus Hobbes

i see all these vids on youttube of ppl tryin to bait cops and piss them off and stuff, and pretty much any high school or college ages kid "hates cops" for basically no reason. i understand that personal experiences jade your views but find it really hypocritical and dumb how sooo many ppl throw a huge generalization out there like " i hate cops!!" but if i got robbed by a mexican and started hatin all mexicans i bet those same ppl would crucify me for sayin that


i think its more about wantin to be edgy and moreso about a mob mentality and bein able to be a part of something

I think we can all get behind hating traffic cops though. They're not all bad people, but when I get pulled over for doing 65 in a school zone then that pig can go **** himself.

Few ppl seem to acknnowledge the high risk n very tough job of cops then have the nerve to complain sbout thrir attitudes. Try dealin with society's scum then try to be mr. Super smiley happy guy 24/7.

People don't care about them being super smiley happy people but at least use discretion when you have free reign to use lethal force.

There are some bad cops that would rather shoot first and ask questions later and they know that they will just get a nice comfy paid suspension for shooting unarmed people.
