I think you understand neither socialism nor capitalism, nor the role of the police in your own country.I don't see why police would support Trump, or why Trump would support police departments. The Trump party is anti-union which would include the police unions. The Trump party is against all socialism of any kind. Since police departments are taxpayer funded, they are a form of socialism. So by that logic, police departments should be abolished.
Two police officers in Gretna, Louisiana have been fired over a Facebook post that suggested Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be killed. One of the officers published the content and another police officer liked it.
Charlie Rispoli, a 14-year veteran of the Gretna police force, shared an article on Facebook last week that included fake quotes attributed to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. The article, which was marked as satire, contained a fake quote from Ocasio-Cortez about members of the U.S. military being paid too much.
Rispoli, apparently believing that the article was real, wrote that Ocasio-Cortez was a “vile idiot,” and that she, “needs a round, and I don’t mean the kind she used to serve.” The congresswoman was previously a bartender before she was elected to Congress.
Angelo Variscom, another officer from the Gretna PD, reportedly liked the post according to local news outlets, and both officers were fired on Monday for violating the police department’s social media policy. Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson called the actions an “embarrassment” at a press conference yesterday.
The best way to change other people's minds is to NOT be vile and hateful towards them. And that goes for everyone.Like no matter how vile or hateful you speak of Trump you aren't going to change any of his supporters minds.... So what is the point of arguing politics and getting so emotional about it?
That's looking at things rather binary though.The best way to change other people's minds is to NOT be vile and hateful towards them. And that goes for everyone.
Conservatives will never be able to do away with the liberal half of the country, and the same principle is true in reverse. We should be looking for ways to live and work together, not trying to pretend the "other side" are non-people we can treat like garbage and are willing to undermine at nearly any cost.
What does that mean? Police in the country have a century-long track record of action with minorities. Action which give a clear sense of how police perceive the value of their lives.Wathis police officer indicative of all police officers? No. So we can't paint all police as being this way.....The officer is human, showed poor judgement, but thank goodness it was in social media.
No. I'm saying that the actions of ONE, do not dictate or reflect the actions of ALL.What does that mean? Police in the country have a century-long track record of action with minorities. Action which give a clear sense of how police perceive the value of their lives.
You’re saying the track record of police and the comments are not consistent?
Even this police department- you saying there is no indication of consistency?
You’re manufacturing a fairy fantasy world. That’s how problems stay.
Agreed on both points.It's not secret that I'm no fan of Trump, his administration or their policies. That said I would never wish harm on them in any way, why some people let their hate get the best of them in that way is beyond me. If you don't like or agree with them, work to get the vote out regardless of what side you're on.
Police in particular have a responsibility to protect the public, they are armed and trained just for this. So when one of them makes a threat like that they have to take it seriously.
I agree but, right now, the news cycle is binary, and the 'nutters' are the ones driving the discourse, such as it is.I think it inevitably falls on the sides themselves having recognize there are nutters in their camps, and trying to keep them in line.
Unfortunately, for some it's worth more to let them run free.
No. I'm saying that the actions of ONE, do not dictate or reflect the actions of ALL.
That’s rather irrelevant as this particular action is very consistent with a long history of actions and mindset of this institution. If there are good eggs here the record shows they are outnumbered by the rotten ones and rarely rat them out.No. I'm saying that the actions of ONE, do not dictate or reflect the actions of ALL.
