    That one won't need much investigating.

    And the police used occupied civilian vehicles as human shields.

    Acceptable. Look how they handled that situation in NZ after all.

    Hey here you can smoke pot in a police station and not get arrested;).

    Our cops are fairly chill as far as cops go.

    I always theorized this is because executions are done away from the public eye. I believe people need to see consequences for those consequences to carry any weight and act as a deterrent. Of course I don't have anything to back this theory up since modern executions aren't done in public and it is impossible to accurately determine what effect public executions had on crime rates back when they were done since there aren't any reliable statistics on crime rates from those time periods.

    Generally opposed to the death penalty willing to make exceptions for serial murderers, rapists, crimes against humanity and pedophiles.

    Makes your own thread a joke throwing in random opinions that have nothing to with anything instead of engaging in the discussion about the thread itself.

    I was responding to people bringing up the death penalty above me.

    The footage is nuts, cops blazing away, hiding behind civilian cars, no regard for the hostage. It looked like a drug cartel shootout. And all over what, stolen goods?

    Search for UPS shooting on Twitter or Google. It was in Miami if that helps. I'm not linking footage of ppl being murdered.

    Our police are racist fascists who view civilian lives as expendable when necessary.

    They only care about their own and they have the power to kill you.

    They are not your friends or allies.
