Because cops are god's gift to Middle America.
Are you being facetious or genuine?
Im serious, I want to know if you understand the kind of pain, and distrust that would lead a group of people to chant that phrase. Keep in mind I'm not condoning the behavior, I just want to know if you understand the history behind those words, because your original post seemed to take a condemning tone.
So you weren't serious. You just want to call me out.as if l'm unaware of the motives of such a chant.
Of course l understand some people dislike the police.
You act as if police brutality is an American thing only. Go to Geeece and see if you don't get your face or ears slapped, or beat up for even talking back to a cop. They're rutheless.
See what happened yesterday to the Kurdish protesters in Washington DC by the visiting Turkish President's bodyguards? They had their heads split open and were arrested. That's not uncommon in my culture.
So l know people hate cops.
However running for the DA it's bad to have your supporters chant that. Is that going to help? Krasner has distanced hinself from the chant.
They were also chanting "No cash bail!".
It's not rocket science why we have cash bail, but clearly they want no-show criminals roaming Philly streets.
I'm at the point where l'm moving from the city. Crime is out of control, our prison system is already a revolving door - l don't ever want to have a sawn-off shotgun in my face and then pressed to my ribs, ever again.
You have your pain, l have mine.
Well l'm not. middle America, lm east coast inner black city.
I have had horrible encounters with cops and incredible ones. I take them on a case by case basis.
Bliss, if I wanted to call you out I would just say that plainly, after all of our interactions you should know that I don't pull punches when I form an opinion. I asked the question because I was genuinely curious. Where in the world did I say that police brutality was only an American phenomenon? If I saw a news story of Greek people chanting anti police slogans, I would not just assume they are criminals or support criminals, I would seek to gain a better understanding as to why they are saying what they are saying, that is the point I was trying to make with you.
This is the first I am hearing of you being a victim of a violent crime, that must have been terrifying for you. I had a similar instance back in my college summer job days when I was a pizza delivery guy and got a .44 magnum shoved in my face, I gave up the $ and the pizzas with the quickness.
Cops need to called out for their bullshit.
If you lived in Greece you would know that there is a lot of anarchist protesters against the Govt and don't want to extend an olive-branch... they want them gone and replaced with their ideology.
The 'Fuck the Police" chants at our DA's race is counter-productive. Do they want a Baltimore situation where oeople are now pleading for police help? I know cops who feel very unappreciated.
Loki, lve said it enough times, l ache for innocent victims and despise rogue cops.
It also pains me that the men lve come to know have to worry they might not survive a police encounter. I totally get it. Based on crime in Philadelphia, l have a polar but same feeling that l won't survive a robbery.
My robber killed a (black) man after robbing me. I think the only reason he spared me was because my accent threw him off and l kept calling him "sweetheart". He saw how terrified l was and asked me to "calm down" and "hold him" like a boyfriend" and to walk with him arm-in-arm.
I have shared this story before...
l did not know you were held up. Wow. You were so lucky you were not hurt or killed. Thank God!!!
Interesting to know about the anarchists, I was not aware of that before, thanks for sharing that. Anarchists have never formed a functioning government, so that will be interesting to watch. If you recall, I did not say I agreed with the F the police chants, we actually agree that it is counter productive and is incredibly unfair to the good cops. I do however understand where that pain, fear and distrust comes from, which is why I choose to help funnel those feelings in a more productive direction with the young men that I mentor.
I must have missed when you shared your armed robbery story before, thank God you were not hurt as well, strange that he wanted you to walk with him, was he leading you somewhere? In my situation I was just glad to get out of there with my life as not only were both guys armed, I could smell that they were drunk as well, just punks who had nothing better to do than to rob me of $40 bucks and 3 pizzas.
Funny how the bad guys are supposed to just quit fighting and blowing shit up because Obama asks friendly.
If he was a Republican president taking out the scumbags, there would be cheers across the land. Like when brain-dead Trumpies cheered when Trump exploded that super-bomb in Afghanistan that didn't even kill anybody.
Obama took out the trash from bin Laden to the Somali pirates to ISIS and it's crocodile tears from righties and far-left hippies.
Fuck you hypocrites.
Cops feel under appreciated? Ok so what so does everyone in nearly every profession. Suck up the tears and the job correctly. Again I don't know the pay nationwide but here in NY these guys get 90k a year and with overtime it's close to 150k. That's far better than most people who have advanced degrees.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller appointed as special prosecutor to investigate any Trump administration ties/election tampering with Russia. Will be interesting, lets see if this turns into another Benghazi where there were 7 investigations with no real consequences for anybody in the end...
Mike Huckabee jokes about having to dodge bullets in Chicago
citizens of the city were unsurprisingly not amused.
That was definitely a dog whistle.
Lol @ cops feeling unappreciated. Cry me a mountain of rivers.
Weiner found guilty. 21 mnths jail recommended. ( He pled guilty)

Los Angeles Times Publishes Op-Ed on Performing Witchcraft Against Trump
One of America's most widely circulated newspapers...
The Los Angeles Times ran the piece, titled "I Put a Spell on You, Mr. President" ...
I just wanna know where is the outrage & caping from Liberals, Mainstream Media, & the Democratic Party like when Trump tries to go after Arabs & illegal non-black Latinos? I expect them to be silent on this.
