But you should never judge the whole barrel by just a few good apples. Most police you meet will be under-educated, spoiled, bitter washed up jocks who were able to do little else.

A good lucrative life can be had in many more boring ways, without the risk of death and injury, yet both criminals and police are drawn to the conflict. If they weren’t cops they would tend towards criminality.

Exceptions are Baltimore and Chicago and the like.
Everyone knows that Chicago cops still harass and beat people regularly, especially in the black neighborhoods. The difference between police and the criminals is only in the sides that they take. Both tend to be less than intelligent and drawn to violence. Neither group really gets ahead because a better living can be had in boring jobs, but they seek the excitement of violence. Honestly, who would want to be a cop or a criminal if they didn’t like the excitement of violence. Certainly no one that would be welcome in either the police forces or the criminal groups.

The persistent refusal of the Lugenpresse to report the truth on inter-racial crime.

The persistent myth of an unbiased media.

Without such is tyranny by police.

But I do believe also the media is playing a huge role in this.
