1. Capitol police are used to dealing with tourists. Street cops are used to dealing with the streets. I refuse to defame any agency. I #BackTheBlue. What happened on 1/6/21 was unacceptable, whether you believe testimony or not. We saw it. Comparing it to the BLM riots
2. Is a valid point, but it should not be perceived as a valid excuse. It upsets me when those who hate cops now want to feign support in order to prove some sick narrative. Police aren’t pawns or props for your divisive shit show. Those of you who compare what happened to 9/11
3. But ignore the fact that DC, along with almost every urban city in America was burning just weeks before 1/6, are the problem. Those of you who wear a mourning band across your shield when an officer is killed, but now want to call other cops cowards based on their version of

“Cops knew what they were signing up for. It’s part of the job.”

The same job that you could never do? No one signed up for disrespect. No one signed up to potentially die and have elected officials use your funeral as a photo op. No one signed up to have their children
be ostracized for what their parent does for a living. No one signs up to have their kid come home and say “Mrs. So-And-So says that you kill black people.” No one signs up for stress that destroys your heart. No one signs up for a professional antagonizer to abuse you.
No one signs up for depression. No one signs up for a strained marriage. No one signs up to lose family because they don’t get what you’re going through. No one signs up for their wife’s friends to openly criticize you because they’re “woke”.

Ok. So in honor of all police officers across this great nation, I’d like all of my brethren to post to this thread the best or worst call/situation you’ve ever responded to (or both)

Let’s show all of these cop haters that we aren’t robots #BackTheBlue #BlueLivesMatter 💙🖤🙏🏼
So, here’s one of mine;

Responded to a possible jumper. Was on the alley side of the building while ESU was trying to set up the airbag. Lady on the roof ledge rocking back & forth on her tiptoes. Crowd is yelling “jump,” son is yelling up at her from a window “mom please, no!”
She tips forward & slightly pushes off. Her son’s scream resonates over the crowd. She hits a gate between the buildings & it splits her clean in half. Her bottom half lands by my feet. She was broken, trying to lift herself up. Didn’t know she was dead yet. I’ll never forget her

@retrofitness Hello, I need to reach out to you all about an racially antagonizing incident that happened last night at your Edison, NJ location. I just joined your gym last week and now I have no choice but to cancel my membership.
@retrofitness This is the #BlueLivesMatter flag hanging up in the middle of the gym area. My sister said this flag was never hanging up before but suddenly it is hanging on the day of #DerekChauvinTrial #DerekChauvinVerdict Why? Is there a subliminal message being communicated?
This incident happened last night and I called the Edison,NJ @retrofitness to resolve this issue and a woman who said she was in charge got very defensive with me and said that there was nothing wrong with the flag.

Why do I have so much scorn for the anti-cop, #DefundThePolice crowd?

- I have to call a take out place in order to place an order for food, and then purposely pick it up late, just to make sure that no one spits in it or tampers with it. I know cops that have been poisoned.
I’ve had to visit way too many of my brothers and sisters in blue in the hospital from them getting assaulted. Then watched the person who assaulted them laugh in the cells and later on try to sue the city for “damages”.
Watched an overrated football player make millions by quoting incorrect and/or incomplete “facts”, destroying a noble career. He’s be completely forgotten by now if he hadn’t ever taken a knee.

Jury Questionnaire for Chauvin Trial Raises Concern About Racial Bias in Jury Selection Process - unicornriot.ninja/2021/black-liv…
The jury questionnaire for the #DerekChauvinTrial is a total of 69 questions. Two of them have provided a center basis for the questioning: “How favorable or unfavorable are you about #BlackLivesMatter” and “How favorable or unfavorable are you about #BlueLivesMatter.” Image
The jury questionnaire serves as somewhat of a prerequisite for the attorneys to determine if people would be able to serve as impartial jurors, but the way the attorneys expound upon these questions during voir dire examination has many raising an eyebrow at the system. Image

The white supremacists who have been screaming #BlueLivesMatter when they were killing black people are now killing cops with white supremacist tattoos. They’re starting to eat their own.
A spiderweb tattoo means one of two things: You’ve done hard prison time or you’re a white supremacist. You can’t do time in prison and be a cop, so you do the math.

“Some groups required that you would have to kill a minority before you could wear such a tattoo.”
I grew up in the same circle with this dude @JoshMerriott. One day he loses his shit, we get into an argument and he calls me the n-word. Long story short: He now works as a correctional officer, he has spiderweb tattoos all over his arms, and is a fervent Trump supporter. Math.

You'll always win if you change the rules when you're losing. It then becomes natural to assume God's favor is on you b/c your "winning record" is evidence of His will. For decades Evangelical Conservatives (EC's) have told us "justice" must be Biblical, not social.

1/
Biblical = aligned with God's righteousness not pursuing human rights. We were told don't protest, trust the system, & leave it in God's hands. If we didn't comply, we were called: Communists, Critical Race Theorists, Heretics, Liberals, Social Justice Warriors, et al.

2/
Romans 13 was used as a proof text used for us to comply, if we didn't we were not "Biblical". Yet, when restrictions were placed on in-door Church gatherings many EC's claimed persecution. Protests in the form of gatherings inside churches were held, w/ masks optional.

2 dudes in black Range Rover, got out and pulled guns on protesters, yelling #BlueLivesMatter , fag*ot, and talking about serving in military. Blonde in the car. No plates, purchased at D&C.
2)Plot thickens: This fed followed guys with guns to Ardea apts, but slowed and kept going when gunmen turned & he circled. I pulled next to him (before I knew he was a Fed) & asked if he saw dudes with guns, he stumbled on words "I heard it, I was on the phone." I replied...
..."They fired"
Fed: "No I heard people saying the guys had guns, I better get out of the way"(he drove off)
After everyone left same plain clothed Fed drove into ICE building. I circled around and other protesters were returning. About 45 min later he drove out with DHS escort.

Sudah pandemi, tertimpa RUU Cilaka pula!

Oligark, DPR, Pemerintah kompak menggolkan RUU Cilaka alias Omnibus Law.

#atasiviruscabutomnibus #jegalsampaigagal #jegalsampaibatal #tolakomnibuslaw #batalkanomnibuslaw #mositidakpercaya #sahkanRUUPKS ImageImage
Malam Minggu di tengah pandemi dipakai DPR dan Pemerintah buat rapat yang menyepakati menetapkan peraturan bangsat ini. Tinggal dibawa ke rapat paripurna buat disahkan, dan nasib rakyat jelata pun makin merana.
Kenapa kita harus peduli? Oh, selama kita bukan bagian dari oligarki, (calon) Undang-undang itu memastikan kita makin diinjak dan dipinggirkan. Mampirlah ke waspadaiomnibuslaw.id kalau mau tahu lebih banyak kengeriannya.

SCANDALE révélé dans l'affaire Legay de Nice! La parole du Président démentie de manière HONTEUSE. Ce qui en ressort est gravissime, il est urgent d'en prendre conscience. On en parle dans ce thread : mediapart.fr/journal/france…
Les faits remontent au 23/03/2019 avec une manifestante de 73 ans sérieusement blessée. Soit disant sans aucun contact avec la police dixit le PR E. Macron lui même. Pourtant un Capitaine de Gendarmerie alerte immédiatement sa hiérarchie de graves manquements.
Le rapport écrit par cet admirable officier est sans aucun équivoque sur les faits survenus ce jour là et sur l'état d'esprit du commissaire de police responsable de la charge ayant occasionnée la blessure de Mme Legay.

@tylereifert used the NFL’s helmet decal provision to list David Dorn’s name which has been used by white nationalists online as anti-Black whataboutism to dismiss police brutality protests and victims. Image
NFL exec Anna Isaacson said the decals “amplify its social justice initiatives” and players can “select a *victim of systematic racism* who is not represented” on an NFL provided list.

@tylereifert & @AIfromBK, please explain how David Dorn is a victim of systemic racism. ImageImage
While David Dorn’s name has been co-opted by Trump and white nationalists to dismiss victims and protesters of police brutality, his daughters say Dorn wouldn’t want to be politicized, and disagreed with Trump’s attacks on Colin Kaepernick.

Tyler and the NFL need to explain. Image

Here are a few thoughts from me in the @washingtonpost on the Democrat's support for 🚨 crime and disorder
[A Thread]

washingtonpost.com/opinions/local…
Let's look at a recent bill from the state of Virginia.

Passed in the Senate, this law would lessen penalties for assaults against police officers and first responders, while retaining penalties for assaults based on race or gender identity. 🤦‍♀️
If an individual was to assault a law enforcement officer 👮‍♀️, the bill would eliminate the six-month mandatory minimum sentence and lower the crime to a class-1 misdemeanor when it was previously a class-6 felony. ⚖️

#BREAKING: Two HEAVILY ARMED Missouri men who identify with the #BlueLivesMatter movement on social media, have been arrested in #Kenosha by the #FBI based on a tip that they travelled there to SHOOT protesters.Hmm
#TheResistance #FridayThoughts #FBRParty
yahoo.com/gma/blue-lives…
The two HEAVILY ARMED Missouri men reportedly told the #FBI they were members of an organization called the "417 Second Amendment Militia". Folks, here we go again--the law enforcement/militia nexus that #MSM refuses to DIG INTO. Hmm

#TheResistance #FridayThoughts #FBRParty
Of course you'll never hear this👆from "@laralogan has no agenda." Her DELIBERATELY flawed narrative is--#ANTIFA is responsible for ALL the violence and #LawAndOrder #Trump needs to go and fix it

As with "support the troops," the "#bluelivesmatter" stuff is all about rhetorical positioning rather than actually giving a damn about the welfare of people in those jobs. (It's why things like gun control, which would actually protect LEOs, were never even mentioned.)
As with the military, it's about giving them the money for the biggest, scariest equipment possible, without considering whether that equipment makes *anyone* safer, better off, etc. Effective background checks would've been a better strategy than selling departments' tanks.
We've also seen this in how military budgeting works. Crap funding for the VHA, failures to provide housing and other basic elements of a social safety net, while at the same time spending trillions on new gear that frequently doesn't even work.

Facts: #KenoshaUprising had at least 4 shot by an AR15. Shooter is filmed for each shooting. Shooter is identified as Kyle Rittenhouse, an open #BlueLivesMatter supporter. He is given water by an armored police vehicle prior to the shooting, and thanked for being there by
@KenoshaPolice, or coordinating agency. Moments after he shoots his final 3 victims just down the street from the police vehicles, he runs towards the police with his hands up. People yell "he just shot those people" he appears to be trying to surrender. However, the police are
not even interested in his surrender and ask him to get out of the roadway. According to @KenoshaPolice the investigation is still underway. Based on my last few retweets, there is enough evidence for an arrest at the least. Meanwhile, @PortlandPolice are arresting 20 people a

#Kenosha is in real crisis.

My church's council & clergy are currently convened in an emergency meeting looking to find agreement on how best to respond and what we can best do to help support these protests while also working to support those who livelihoods are now ashes.

1/
Bad actors, undoubtedly sympathetic to the causes of the white supremacist agenda have infiltrated social media, local chat boards, and, by extension local and national media outlets.

They are working to heighten resentment against the protesters and to grow fear.

2/
They've spread rumors that protestors will be targeting churches, synagogues, daycares, and schools tonight.

But these threats are not logical nor do they follow the patterns of other protests cycles we've experienced.

These are community wide resources being threatened.

In 2020 so far, 27 police officers have been shot and killed. Also this year, 32 officers have been killed in traffic related incidents. In 2019, 13 unarmed black men were killed, this year is trending the same. 48 officers were shot and killed in the line of duty in 2019.
So my question is, where is the outrage from everyone when police officers are killed at 3 to 4 more times then unarmed black men? Yet we have thousands out on the street protesting.
In 2019. Of the 48 officers feloniously killed:
15 died as a result of investigative or law enforcement activities
6 were traffic stops
4 were investigative activities
2 were drug-related
2 were interacting/wanted persons
1 was investigating suspicious person or circumstance.
