How can they know that you hate cops ?

I use my "rights to free speech" in order to express that.

Notice the locations where they are used to arrest black people randomly/harass them -> Avoid these locations

That's not an option for those of us who live in primarily black neighborhoods, because they police those disproportionately more. It also falls under the assumption that other "voluntaryists" such as yourself would allow black people to live in their neighborhoods. Not everyone can afford to move locations freely.

Yeah, but you have to be careful about what you say.

That's why the internet anonymity is such a wonderful thing.

In every street corner ? 24 hours a day ? They randomly harass people that much ? Where do you live ?

"voluntaryists" such as yourself don't want black people in their neighborhoods.

Don't get where you're getting this, no problem with black people in neighborhoods...

I should be able to say that I don't care about dead cops without being arrested. It isn't illegal.

Yes. Cops have quotas. They're literally incentivized to arrest people. Giving away my location to some stranger on a forum for radical politics to prove a point would be unwise.

You don't speak for other voluntaryists that hold segregationist beliefs, though.

Yes, you are able to say it. If you're not arrested, good for you, but the state doesn't give a shit about laws...

Yeah, but I don't really believe it when you say that cops can monitor every corner of the street, 24 hours a day like you're saying. Even in capital cities, they don't do this. Hell, even in North Korea, they can't do this, It's too expensive.

And If they monitor this city that much, It means that there are crowds of people & you'll be able to blend in, anyway (reducing the probability to be randomly targeted)

Never said that rape is legitimate. I was just telling him some self defense tips against rape, nothing wrong there/no victim blaming...

When I said "yes", I meant that cops do harass a shit ton of people, not that they're omnipresent 24/7. Obviously, they aren't. Doesn't change the fact that they focus on black and brown neighborhoods more. Nor does it change the fact that those neighborhoods are usually poor and that moving out of these neighborhoods isn't fucking easy. And that's before getting into gentrification, a process that requires more policing in order to get poor POC's out of what used to be their neighborhoods.
