Scotties Toy Box

The Many Things In My Toy Box ….my view may change due to verifiable evidence

This is hard to watch due to the shouting and the news.   But the actions of the filmed cop are clear as day including how he reacted when he realized he was being filmed doing it.   The cop had a bag of drugs palmed in his right hand, he brings his hands together and then while looking / speaking to the other cop places the bag on the ground next to the black guy.   Then he picks it up like he found it.   Then when the people watching shout he is being film he jumps up and charges at them I guess to get the phone and destroy it.    How many black people have had their lives ruined by cops like him?  No wonder people want the police defunded and reformed.   Hugs

      Hello Meeka. This has been happening to POC for a long time. It is because of corrupt police like these that maybe hundreds of thousand POC have gone to jail for crimes they did not commit and lost all their civil rights and hope for decent futures. Hugs

        I guess we all know that there are a ‘few bad eggs’ in every institution, but what I’ve seen just the last year has been horrific. So many incidents, all raciallyl motivated and all so blatant. They are either so used to doing this that they don’t stop to see if they’re being filmed or…they don’t care because they know they will get away with it.
        Is it the police at the top that allow/enable this to go on? Someone powerful must be turning a blind eye? Nothing will change until /they/ are rooted out. 😦

          Hello Meeka. Yes, they think even if caught they will get away with it, because they have done so. It is only recently have any consequences happened to police. For a couple years we had video of police clearly shooting and killing unarmed black people for no reason and even when charged they are found not guilty. Police always use the excuse they were afraid for their lives. People are not buying it anymore. You have three things protecting bad cops. The racists made a large push to get into the police forces so they could control the public and keep POC “in their place”. The police unions are very powerful now to the point where they openly threaten the elected leaders when any talk of taking money or power away from the police. Those powerful unions make it nearly impossible to fire bad cops. The last thing was public indifference which until recently believed the propaganda put out by the police and the right wing media. All of that is changing and the police / law enforcement are doing everything they can to keep their power and authority. Hugs

            Not good, but at least there is some hope for change now. Unfortunately I suspect it’ll take a real Crusader at the political level to root out the worst of the corruption. Coz that’s what it is. 😦
