LAPD officer Sunil Dutta, writing 100% seriously in a WaPo op-ed entitled (I kid you not) “I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me.” (via hipsterlibertarian)
"Stop resisting!" A phrase exclusively said by rapists and police officers.
Most think and act this way, while the rest let them. Which means all cops are assholes. Yes, even your friend or loved one who you think is so great. Every single cop - even those who may be good people in their private lives - puts on the uniform and does three things: (1) collect a paycheck that is forcefully extracted from the populace through threats of violence (mostly taxes, though also through asset forfeiture), (2) enforce bad laws that violate the rights of people who have harmed no one, and (3) uphold the “thin blue line” that protects the particularly sadistic and corrupt among them (who are clearly not the minority).
A “good cop” is a cryptid.(via laliberty)
