What was the point of ripping off the spotlight? They'll just get another with our tax dollars. You aren't sticking it to the man but your community.

u/leonardo_is_boiola May 19 '22 hehehehe

to show discontent with the police force, of course its not about the spotlight. but a ripped mirror speaks louder than words when you're trying to tell the government to stop sending their mercenaries to murder your people

u/MoleHester May 19 '22

Dude should start vandalizing street poles to tell them to stop hurting his people.

This guy ran into a stationary pole. I doubt he was making a political statement, more like a mental health and/or drugs issue here to my eyes.

Does not this have exactly opposite effect? Without criminality cops are not needed.

Yea do that buy destroying their property and pissing them off more. You people are fucking stupid.

u/leonardo_is_boiola May 19 '22

how the fuck else are you supposed to tell the government that you dont aproove the police? with words???? no dumbass, that never worked. are we supposed to just accept when those motherfuckers come to our neighborhood and beat kids up and murder our friends without fighting back? fuck you

u/Justarandomguy__lel May 19 '22

I agree with you however in common sense it just getting more people in jail. You could also start a petition and i would garuntee thousands would sign government’s usually pay attention to petitions.

u/AurumArgenteus May 19 '22

Won't matter. Put simply, our unions for citizens have been gutted while police unions are insanely strong. On multiple occasions they have gone against politicians and legislation to coerce them into submission. Not sure what the solution is, but until we weaken their union nothing we do will matter.

1

u/Serverfirstmount May 20 '22

Weakening their union will just result in less cops. So they wont be there when you need them. Have fun America

u/Possible-Towel May 19 '22

Try changing your own community first. If you don’t want people dying then quit killing each other? Cops won’t have to be on edge if your communities stop acting like they live in the Middle East.

u/leonardo_is_boiola May 19 '22

yea but they aren't being PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT!!!!! ofc people will murder people. but the police is paid with tax dollars to walk around with guns and murder people (predominantly minorities.). also they are insanely inefective in stoping common murders

5

u/AurumArgenteus May 19 '22

Preventing murders is effectively impossible. We can judge them on the clearance rate of murders and the accuracy of getting the right person (will be a biased stat since it only accounts for those that win in our bad appellate system). They aren't great by those measures, but at least they are reasonable expectations for what good work is.

8

u/Weorge-Gashington69 May 19 '22

They statistically rarely murder people but ok

u/TimberWolf_12 May 19 '22

I’d say it’s closer to “practically never,” but yes, thank you.

Statistically rarely is not the greatest defence for some things.

That’s like a defendant saying: if you look at my record you will see statistically most of my sex was consensual

u/Blaze0205 May 20 '22

Except this is when there’s thousands upon thousands of cops in the country compared to 1 guy. There’s no way every single cop will be good just like there’s no way every single anything will be good. Although there are a LOT of bad cops right now.

u/Weorge-Gashington69 May 20 '22

There are millions of police interactions with citizens every year. Almost zero end in unjustified shootings

If we going by the prejudiced mind..then maybe he committed and more likely to commit a crime because he's black(by your logic)

Of course a crowd starts gathering lol. How dare you arrest a guy who just destroyed property and then attempted to assault the police

1

u/IcedSickle May 20 '22

I think it was more for overseeing how the police handle the situation. Police are less likely to commit an act of brutality with a bunch of witnesses. The community is watching out for each other.

6

u/ElDiavoloPiccolo May 19 '22

It's impressive that he somehow managed to get a 10 second lead in a distance of about 35 meters while not even in full sprint. The cops would need about 30 seconds for a 100m track.

I was literally quicker in first grade. WTF IS POLICE DOING?

19

u/Wawrzyniec_ May 19 '22

They are wearing a significant amount of cumbersome gear.

But yes, the main problem is that they seem a little bit out of shape (and motivation to actually catch that guy)

5

u/ElDiavoloPiccolo May 19 '22

They are fat and unhealthy and should have lost their right for patrol work.

Sit your chubby ass in an office.

If you want to chase criminals again, you have to become fit first.

And "fit" means being able to run WITH THE GEAR.

That easy.

I mean come on,... Only the unfittest 1,3% of the criminals could be caught by those snails... Nearly every human being can just casually jog away from them. And their job is literally chasing them. IF this is not the definition "not qualified for the job", I don't know what is

7

u/Tombstone_Actual_501 May 19 '22

Well the one is pretty chubby, idk about the other I think the guy got pepper sprayed.

6

u/hddbug May 19 '22

I think they balanced leaving the car behind, him being pepper sprayed, recent rules/guidelines put in place and getting separated in a rough part of the city

6

u/PsychologicalStep210 May 19 '22

On top of that, they are loaded with gear. Bullet proof vests, utility belt, radios, etcetera.

-5

u/Visual_Shower1220 May 19 '22

So if they cant run with said gear when their literal job is to chase down criminals 99% of the time why are they even allowed to be police? All you need to do is be able to run for more than 30 seconds to out run a cop, seems to me that should fall under "inability to complete necessary functions of your job description and title."

1

u/YEETAWAYLOL May 20 '22

If there is a criminal running, you are normally not chasing them in a 1 on 1 chase. Most of the time you would get backup.

1

u/Visual_Shower1220 May 20 '22

Looks like theres back up right there, 2 cops cant catch 1 perp? I just find it sadly hilarious, this is the state of most of the US police force. Fat, cant run more than a few minutes, and highly ineffective unless they feel like executing someone instead of letting them get their day in court. Also after perp hit the ground it took almost a minute for the cops to jog up, yet many people seem to defend ineffective police officers while i and many others are calling them out. Not just these officers faults but the training itself, why wouldnt you be training them to "run in such heavy gear oh poor cops" they signed up for it and should be required to take more than a basic ass high school fitness test to he considered fit enough to be a cop. Also on the topic of "heavy gear" our soldiers carry much more weight and are required to run miles, uphill/down hill and they are quite effective, and police in other countries carry considerly less gear and are more effective than our own police force.

4

u/BrocElLider May 19 '22

Yeah, I feel like the pepper spray to the face was about the right amount of instant justice for tearing off the spotlight.

The patrol cops should be in much better shape though. A decision to not pursue further should be an actual choice, not an outcome forced by lack of fitness.

Lessons learned: 1) Police are fat out of shape pigs and, are statistically likely to be homicidal psychopaths 2) Inanimate poles are better at fighting crime (and literally everything else) than police.

1

u/leonardo_is_boiola May 19 '22

good lessons, conclusion being that trading every officer for a lightpost might actually reduce crimes since the streets will be well lit.
