Cops are heartless, cold blooded, and asshats



These were the men who had to see those children who were killed in Newtown, CT .. And had to notify all the parents along with school officials their innocent children were dead.

1. Your thread title sucks

You're using their grief to slay a strawman; this is not what people here regularly say about cops. It's unseemly.

4. A very small minority make comments like that, but the vast majority of DU posters refuse....

...to make sweeping remarks like that.

5. This neither proves cops are all great or all bad. There are great cops and bad cops. And they...

both would feel bad when kids are shot.

Many on DU are quick to condemn "all cops" for the action of a few.

19. I see your point. But I am not a fan of the police. Mostly because they tend to protect bad...

behavior from the bad cops. And the police unions defend cops no matter what they do.

But I know even bad horrible cops help people at times.

13. My father and many

Of his friends were cops together. I was very young when he was, and he saw a lots of shit. Made him very protective of me and my sisters. They have hearts and children too. What if one of the officers had a child that was murdered during the rampage? Found their own child dead? I pray for all of them.

Eta, spelling

22. My heart goes out to them, and to all the first-responders.

Unimaginable horror. We must see to it that they have all the care they need for as long as they need it.

25. Amen. And to the children and first responders in other countries.

At a certain point, we need to come together as human beings and stop defending the indefensible.

24. and they will never be the same either

Too damn sad of a call that anyone should answer. Two cops (per CBS news) were inside the school in about two mins and saw the shooter at the end of a long hallway. They were approaching but he did a last round of shots and then he killed himself. Who knows how many they saved that day but I'm sure they will never believe they did enough.

32. Cops are just like any other group of people. Some are good, some are bad.

Until people start understanding this concept, stereotypes and misconceptions will continue to the detriment of us all.

33. The asshat rap is their own fault whether deserved by all cops or not.

The 95% of police officers that do the job to protect and serve need to do something to stop the asshat 5% from beating the shit out of brown people, tasering grandmas and little kids to death, disabling people involved in lawful protests etc etc etc.

Everyone I know hopes to hell they show up and do the right thing when needed but doesn't trust the cops to do so either.
