I don't like this.

What this guy did doesn't change anything. Do you think killing cops will make people afraid to enter the profession? People will just become police to stop people like that. Saying anything positive about this man will encourage a general violent hatred from us, of the state and of the police, without reason. We'll all be talking about how much we hate cops on these forums, and it'll look exactly like the Voat discussions about hatred of black people.

Yeah I have a downvote now. Oh well.

This guy shouldn't have killed cops. They were probably just people who thought they were doing the right thing. Unless those cops were murderers.

Sorry about my previous reaction.

Hatred of cops is fine - there's more than enough good reason for it

Hatred of black people is not
equating cops with black people like this is racist

at least take some time to read the shit in the sidebar before you come here with your asshole kneejerk liberal shit

Some debate about how much to hate cops is fine in f/ACAB, but equating cop-hatred with racism is racist (and more) and won't be tolerated. Any further garbage of the sort will be banned. Please go read up on why it is garbage.

Hatred of cops comes from a better place than hatred of black people. Cops are the slave catchers of yesterday and the security guards of the widely connected prison halls of today. Having a place to vent these frustrations is the least the public can ask for considering all the murder and torture the cops get away with. To get mad at those wishing to vent is similar to victim blaming. Hating on cops is not "without reason".

This dude may have been coked up, and even by the police's own accounts was genuinely remorseful over his decision, but if you're comparing which side has more blood on their hand it is the police. The police are quick to say he deserves death while promoting cops who do exactly what he did to that cop.

edit: I just wanted to clarify that I agree with the other posts saying that even making the comparison between a violent class traitor institution for enforcing the racism of the empire with an entire ethnic group of people is racist. The cops can and they should take their badges off if they don't want our hatred.
