Cops suck. It’s a fact. They’re armed, trained to use lethal force, and can almost never be punished for crimes they commit. They protect the wealthy and their private property while enforcing a class structure designed to fuck the poor forever and ever. Cops are overwhelmingly white men, attracting to their ranks an infinite supply of KKK members, military rejects, and high school bullies.
While on the job, cops rape, they scalp, they strangle, they lie to protect each other, and they kill with impunity. On average, cops and private security shoot a black man every 28 hours in America. While virtually all law enforcement agencies follow the same fascist playbook, the Portland Police Bureau’s especially barbaric track record has recently been scrutinized by a Federal investigation and international media coverage.
Despite witnessing cops physically assault and arrest people I know, as a general rule, I do not voluntarily speak to or even make eye contact with police. I mention this so you don’t think me biased when I say: to the cop who almost hit me while I rode my bike last Friday, FUCK YOU.
