I don't even know where to start with the ignorance of your statements in this thread.

Go do a ride along with some officers and see the work they do to serve and protect the public. Gain some perspective.

Definitely. Cops are people like me or you. From the few you meet (on a bad day, maybe) and the few on the news that act improperly, you blanket every officer serving the law as a bad apple.

Of course, I do think there is a problem with police brutality in this country, but it does not mean police officers are bad.

It is like the part when I said I know they exist was irrelevant in the fact that I stated I know good cops exist.

Why would I want to drive with a cop?

I will have to cool down before I reply again.

While I do that, think about the parallel between the statements "and this is why I hate cops," "this is why I hate black people" and generalizations and hatred of entire groups of people. Btw, I'm 99.9% positive earmuffs statement was tongue in cheek to make this point.

And in this instance, police officers DID apply too much force. It is slightly understandable due to the fact the plastic gun shown was not apparently a toy bb gun (missing the orange cap, markers, or muzzle they usually have), but still, IT'S A KID, and they had knowledge beforehand that the gun may have been a toy.

And yet you said, "This is why I hate cops." You essentially said that this shooting is representative of police officers.

Yeah I do hate cops, but I also know not all cops are like this. I hate that some cops get away with shit cause they where a badge.

The only thing I must say to that is that you can choose to be a cop, but you can't choose to be black. I can't sit down and go welp I am not black , but you can quit being a cop. So one is not a choice and the other one is, saying hating blacks is hating someone who could not help it, cops can help it. And I ain't dragging this out I stop here with this from now on lets talk about this issue.

What if I want to be a cop because i want to do good? Does that give people an incentive to automatically hate me because I become a cop? That doesn't seem fair that would be willing to put my life on the line for people who want to spam hate comments at me because they think im a bad cop.
