    TLB, I am a little confused. You are throwing our the term the worst, does this relieve Wandering of being the worst?

    Or is the worst a separate title than the King of Bad Opinions?

    the worst is different than king of bad opinions

    a throne wandering steadfastly refuses to abdicate

    Guy, I don't know who you are, but you just went into the "cool kids" section of my book for posting love for The Police.

    TLB, I expect a 500-word essay answering my question.

    In cursive.

    Tox you make a good point and I can see the rationale of why you would say fuck the police based on that rationale.

    Lawinator why would you be willing to make a claim like fuck the police if, in fact, the majority of cops aren't corrupt?

    Alright, the call of "Fuck the police" has become something more than the simple stringing of those 3 words. It no longer really means "hey i hate all cops" or whatever. It is really an institutional thing now. The corruption is systemic and stains the reputation and honor of the good cops in there, when they are pressured to cover up for other people's mistakes or malicious deeds. They may not be acting in overtly corrupt ways, but they are forced to be complicit in other people's crimes.

    Ok then that's cool, I just didn't get this from your first post.

    I guess I'm not qualified to make a judgment on the respectives police departments over there in the US, but I have a hard time swallowing the assumption that the negatives of the Australian police force outweigh the good work they do, as an organisation.

    I understand the point that fuck the police is now regarded as an idiom for general dissatifaction with the constabulary, as opposed to someone voicing their animosity towards the coppers who make up the force.

    Please have mercy.

    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it

    shit can't believe I didn't think of the police connection earlier. That's why Ronnie's the webcomic guy and not me

  • FerrusFerrus Registered User regular
    A big part of why individual cops can get away with shit like this is probably the esprit de corps among them. You have ONE person who fucks up, and the rest might disagree with their behavior but they sure as hell ain't gonna rat out one of their own.

    Which is understandable to a degree.

    Police brutality is a problem in pretty much every western country nowadays.

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.

    e: I really wish I could find more videos of the good cops, but as was stated earlier, no one gives a shit about that. Everyone just wants to see them fucking up.

    This isn't even really the case for most decent people. They hate seeing them fuck up, and focus on it in hopes of preventing further instances.

    With all this serious talk going on, I'm surprised we haven't started getting page long quotes from people arguing.
