I'm extremely dumb and incredibly white, so it took me way too long to realize this. I think I found it all so laughable that I never thought of it as dangerous. And then I talked with my dad about the show and he had used the stuff in it to reinforce his own prejudices. Very fun.

Also, the reason why the death count from the Bengal famine ranges from 3 million to 35 million is that, unlike the Nazis, Britain actually underwent a successful record destruction in order to prevent this information from ever being released. Look up Operation Legacy for more information. Up to 35 million dead. From ONE point in time from ONE country, up to 35 million dead because of directions from the British empire.

CATS. CATS ARE NICE

You can instantly spot a person who's never had to actually call the police because unless you're actually in a life threatening situation they don't do jack loving poo poo, and if you are in one most likely they'll turn up late and probably arrest you.

I was in the middle of traffic with some friends when the car behind me hit us, freaked out, reversed hard enough to knock the car behind them out of the way, and ran the rest of the reds on the street. There were a bunch of us in the car to witness it, we got a plate number, and all we wanted was the cop to write down something so my friend could prove the hit and run to his insurance.

The cop showed up, told us that he didn't want to waste time dealing with it, and left. I know it's not exactly a bank robbery, but dude, at least pretend to care.

Hier graben!

I'm 41 and I've never had an interaction with police that was helpful to anyone but police. I know boomers like to yell "JUST YOU WAIT UNTIL YOUR HOUSE IS ROBBED BY THUGS AND YOU DIAL 911 HURRR"

But I actually have never heard of police interrupting a violent burglary in progress to save people. gently caress, if anything they'll arrive late and murder the homeowner in a case of mistaken identity

In conclusion, cops are entirely useless in my admittedly limited experience

My apartment was robbed a few hours after I left for a 3 week trip overseas. My house sitter called the cops who showed up 4 hours later (Eugene, Oregon), took some notes, dusted for prints. When I spoke on the phone with them they said it was probably someone near by who saw me leave for my trip.

Never heard anything else about it. No follow up.

gently caress the police.

I mean, the reality these people need to realize is that then there is gently caress all the cops really can do even if they were good at the job, or cared, for stuff like burglary of an empty house. We're better off spending that money addressing the socioeconomic causes of burglary and providing financial compensation for the burgled than on paying a pack of armed idiots to show up and go "ayyup, looks burgled."

I was in a parking garage when I witnessed a car driven by a driver who was clearly drunk or on drugs rammed a parked car and then got stuck at the gate when she had no payment. We called the police and it took two calls for the bike cops to show up because they rode right past the garage entrance multiple times (despite clear directions and a cross-street). They tried to pressure the (recent Puerto Rican immigrant) vehicle owner into not pressing charges that could result in them actually having to pursue a case, scolded her for getting angry at them, and scolded us for following the driver after she fled on foot into a Starbucks nearby. Then they just let the still very high driver call her boyfriend to drive her home, with no expectation that she wouldn't just go right back and get her car. The only reason the poor woman pursued charges at all is because we stayed to tell her what to do.

That was the point I decided that I wasn't calling the cops for poo poo again. Utterly useless pricks. You'd get more mileage out of throwing rocks at the idiot's car than hoping the police will help.

ohhh, sis, smh posted:


Enough with the whining and rioting and acting foolish. We all matter, EQUALLY.
Blacks kill far more blacks over ridiculous gang turf wars and drugs and prostitutes, than are ever killed by LAW enforcement. GET OVER IT. Youre only making yourselves look like black supremacists and hurting innocent people and livelihoods who werent even involved in the inciting incident. JUST STOP.
There are no white laws and black laws. Just AMERICAN laws. Follow them and you wont have to worry about being arrested.
