Black protesters and their families continue to die in mysterious circumstances; mainstream media continues to ignore it:
https://www.essence.com/amp/news/what-happened-to-danye-jones-son-of-ferguson-activist-found-hanged-from-tree/
>Earlier this month, on Oct. 17. Ferguson activist Melissa McKinnies found her 24-year-old son Danye Jones dead, hanging from a tree.

>McKinnies, well known in her community, having participated in numerous protests in Ferguson since the Aug. 2014 death of Michael Brown, believes that her son was lynched. In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, McKinnies shared graphic images of her son under the caption, “They lynched my baby.”

>Jones’ death has once again stirred conversation around various other activists in Ferguson who have died since 2014 under seemingly suspicious circumstances.

>In 2014, Deandre Joshua, 20, was found shot once in the head, and then set on fire inside his car the same day a grand jury refused to indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Prominent Ferguson activist Darren Seals was also found dead inside of a burning car back in 2016. He had also been shot. And then there was the 2017 death of Edward Crawford, the activist captured in the iconic photo tossing a canister of tear gas away from those protesting Brown’s death. Police claimed that he died of a “self-inflicted” wound while in the back seat of his own car.

Same story as Bland. Pretty brazen display, but the cops have their marching orders and it's not surprising that all levels of Midori like Missouri government are controlled by Republicans...

> In a Facebook post that has since been deleted,
Other reports are saying that Facebook deleted the post themselves. Why would they take it down? What skin in the game do they have?

I know people like to claim social media has a built in liberal bias, but it's pretty clear that's not the case at all...

Probably because it violates facebook ToS.. Nothing more and nothing less.

Preserving the status quo. Allowing the smallfolk to think too much outside of the approved range of Allowable Political Discussion Topics (immigrant caravans, Soros, Russia, abortion, trannies in bathrooms, football man not standing, It's Her Turn, etc) risks disrupting the system that made Zux so rich.

it showed her son's dead body hanging. Like >>172376 it was a violation of ToS. Whether or not you think the ToS is designed to filter "Allowable Political Discussion" is a whole different matter but it's pretty clear cut as far as showing corpses and gore.

More police-related bad feels:
>Drunk bar patrons open fire on a bar.

>Bar’s black male security guard (Good Guy With A Gun™) saves the day by returning fire and apprehending one of the men.

>Cops show up, see security guard holding a gun

>Cops murder him on the spot.

yeah I saw this the other day. The second amendment is only for white people, which is exactly the reason that neoliberal attempts at gun control or bans are a terrible idea: they will disproportionally (and violently) affect marginalized groups. Libs love to ignorantly blab about the mentally ill and gun control as well, no shit that they are also targeted with extreme prejudice by police.

This is one of those Worst Person You Know Has A Good Point situations. I tend to agree more with conservatives on gun ownership policy just for completely different reasons.

Anyway, fuck cops.

I was pretty drunk when I wrote that and if I were to do it again I would just type "liberal" instead.

Basically, people who support laissez faire economics, deregulation*, and imperialism with the caveat of *some regulatory measures begrudgingly granted for a perceived social good, like gun control, environmental and food protections, healthcare, etc.I would generally group the Global North together as neoliberal

Don't use big boy words if you don't understand what they mean. Neoliberalism is a set of economic principals. It has nothing to do with gun control. Read a book, not a fake news blog.

Then you didn't understand what I posted. I backtracked on the first post to just say calls to gun control are liberal, and in my second post I definitely didn't say that gun control is a tenant of neoliberalism. I said that neoliberals have a tendency to begrudgingly grant some regulatory measures, emphasis on "begrudgingly". I honestly don't know how you could read both of those posts and and still get "you said gun control is a tenant of neoliberalism" out of that, unless you choose to ignore my second post entirely, but then why even mention it? Your post is wrong. You're wrong.

>You don't fully understand what neoliberalism is.
Alright then why don't you enlighten me instead of misreading my posts and acting like a prick?

fuckin ridiculous but not surprising at all. I can see people trying to justify this because getting SWAT involved is supposedly a huge escalation, but it's not like your every day patrol pigs wouldn't have also murdered him so it doesn't stand.

To be honest the dude who called in the SWAT bears responsibility for this. However the responding officers also bear the blame for being a bunch of trigger-happy knuckle draggers.

They should be relegated to sorting trash in a city dump for the rest of their lives, after a 20 year term for murder.

Well, there's the state of the police in the US being extremely quick to use their guns, but there's also the fact that this dude called in the hit knowing full well they are like this and seemingly had no issue causing a situation in which someone was likely to get shot and killed. They knew exactly what might happen and did it anyways, which is just as fucked as what the police did.

I don't think anybody is arguing that the guy is guiltless, just that it's insane that the police bear no culpability. Of course, US police are rarely held accountable for anything so it's not like this breaks precedent.

Well, there are some decent police. Our local news will post back to back a cop
who does whatever, with, on a lighter note as the next piece.

Some will support police no matter what. Rape, victims fault. When a cop is convicted. If they apologize to their family, Ok, I guess. But if they do not apologize for betraying the peoples trust, that is a bad cop.

Funny, cops who think a trial by judge will get them off, and it doesn't work, given the evidence. Where a trial by a jury of their peers would have been more sensible.

At this point it's easier to say there are no decent cops in the US than try to come up with excuses for them. Nearly a thousand people have been put down like rabid dogs just this year, and last year.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/national/police-shootings-2018/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.1f62b5299c18

There doesn't seem to be a good database for rapes, assaults, etc. committed by police in the US.

You can look up copwatch. They should have stats they should be somewhat accurate, been around for a long time. For what it's worth, more cops commit suicide than are killed on the job. Those stats are easy enough to find. These are often under reported.

I believe police have a burden with corruption, it is taught, learned, reinforced. It is a self-burden. Which affects everybody concerned. Even those who would support the most senseless crimes by law enforcement, making, deflecting blame of officers that really have, had no business in law enforcement in any capacity to begin with.

There are police who do their jobs well. Generally just everyday people. They are burdened by corrupt actors.

It just takes one or two cops to create a fairly massive burden on many others. Many have no real way, it would seem to cope with this in a positive or realistic manner.

People deflect and may say, you hate the police (because you don't support corrupt ections.) No it's 100% quite the opposite. This support does not help police, help morale. Corrupt actions hurts morale.

People think they support all police, then become disenchanted if they get a traffic ticket, like bu bu bu, I support you guys
no matter what. Well, nobody's perfect I guess.
