  1. You don't represent the police brothers…Ur trying to get sympathy for those white cops who kill blk people??? Black cops are good cops and don't kill its citizens…white cops do

  2. So because they locate and document 1 cop that has the ability to display common sense, they want to put forward the idea that cops are all brave and honourable. Sad truth is it isn’t that 1 bad apple cop, the truth is that it is that 1 rare shiny apple cop.
    The man shot and killed sitting beside his girlfriend is huge example of police stupidity. That cop failed to provide immediate first aid. He went so far as to hold the girlfriend at gunpoint, preventing her from giving her boyfriend first aid. Even people with no training know to put pressure on a bleeding wound. That cops ignorance and cowardice caused the gentleman’s death.
    Cops are paid to serve and protect. They are also paid above average wage to compensate for the perils they face. Why is everything about ‘officers safety’? What happened to the ‘citizens safety’?
    100 citizens leave a sporting event, if 5 cops decided that was too large a crowd to safely interact with, and just opened fire, killing all 100.? Results would be – officers safety was maintained. Investigation would find that some of those citizens had criminal records so that would become the focus. Then the few citizens the police couldn’t allege any prior wrongdoing would be guilty for not following orders fast enough. Then the cops would all be receiving paid suspensions. Before the ‘investigation’ led to criminal charges, the cops would be allowed to quit, retire, resign or transfer – concluding the need to investigate. Case closed.
    THAT IS WHY things are bad. People are sick to death of the double standards. Even when we finally see a cop going to court, at sentencing he receives some slap on the wrist for the crime.

  3. THE RACIST ASS COPS LIVE FOR BEATING BLACK PEOPLE. ITS LIKE THEY GET A FUCKING RISE FOR THEM. WE THE PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THESE RACIST ASS THUGS WE ARE JUST NO GOOD LOSERS TO THESE MOTHERFUCKERS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AND READ SOME OF THE TEXT THAT THESE NO GOOD SCUM OF THE EARTH LIVING FUCKING DOGS BE WRITING ABOUT US. THEY WILL LOOK AT YOU SMILE IN YOUR FACE AND AS SOON AS YOU TURN AROUNG ON THEM THAT NO GOOD FOR NOTHING NI–ER. THIS SHIT GOES ON EVERYDAY. THIS SHIT WILL NEVER EVER STOP.

  4. If these two officers ever get into trouble I hope they know that that thin blue line stops at white skin and they gets no white privilege in court and their dept backs up no black or yellow cops in court.

  5. If you guys want our sympathy, quit Bead team,and killing innocent people un armed. Till you stop that shit,other shit is going to continue. I’m 68 years old and I’ve seen a bad change in the police departments. They blame it on 911 they blame it on cops been shot. Let’s see so far this year including those five. What 20 police in the whole nation. And almost 1000 civilians killed by police this year, half of them were un armed. The police need to take a better look at what they’re doing. They turned this place into Nazi Germany. Till then I don’t feel sorry for any of them. They beat and kill children, children people. What a shame. How do they get up and look in the mirror in the morning. How can they be proud of putting that uniform on. Shame on you boys in blue. I have even tried to destroy the American flag with your blue shirt. Shame shame shame on you boys in blue

  6. HELL THEY SAY THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW AND DAMNIT THAT IS THAT CAN'T NOBODY TOUCH US EVEN THE MOST HIGH CAN'T TOUCH US(GOD CAN AND WILL)WE HAVE OURGOVERNMENT STICKING BY US HELL WE COPS ARE GOING TO HELL WITH THE REST OF THE WICKED LEADERSHIP BUT HEY WE SHALL CONTINUE OUR KILLING SPREES HELL WE NEVER KNOW WHEN GOD WILL STRIKE US BUT UNTIL THEN WE WILL CONTINUE OUR WICKED ACTS!!

  7. FUCK THIS LYING RACE TRAITOR
    AND FUCK ABC . WHY POLICE WORK IS DANGEROUS IS BECAUSE COPS ARE LYING LOW LIFE CREEPS WITHOUT INTEGRITY.
    WITHOUT MORTALITY OR
    EMPATHY FOR THEIR FELLOW MAN.
    THEIR ONLY MISSION IN LIFE IS TO STEAL MONEY FROM THE POOR AND LOCK THEM INTO CAGES.

  8. This is propaganda…cop says.."nobody comes to work and says…I wanna kill somebody"…despite the fact thousands of emails, facebook posts and text messages from white law enforcement state that very sentiment….come on people…wake up!! fake news!

  9. "Hey Girl, The names Mark… I'm sure you can see with your own two.. but … I make this look good…right?Obviously, I do Black, well. … im putting on a free student clinic, lets say we go to my place and in 10 easy minutes I teach you how YOU too can also do Blackwell, as good as myself…. 😉🛏 🦴🍆😘 …..?"

  10. People think this is propaganda…..but the fact is……most shifts are exactly like this. You answer a couple of calls….talk to a couple of people…..maybe write a couple of tickets (if you catch people messing up). Probably 99% of officers NEVER fire their weapon in the line of duty. Bad officers need to be punished, but don't throw all the good cops out with the bad. Do you have any idea what your country would be like with no police? I do not even want to imagine.

  11. How about treating BLACK PEOPLE like a human that we are, then you would not have to worry about making it home after your days work 🤔 if you think it's bad now, just keep on policing the way you men and women in blue do.

  12. Well wen you always have dumb ass white cop's dat do dumb shit to black people u gone spark violent wit people in da Street's people tired of bulshit from police dats racist

  13. Only one color- Blue. There is no race but only one in the gang of blue. There is no open season. No one will take the violent path to shoot the gang heavily armed unless they said enough is enough. Stop making up the propaganda to make the pigs look like great guys. I will fight any intruder with what I have may have the chance to survive but when these guys involved, I don't see any positive outcome.

  14. why is it when blacks decide to protest it always starts off really nice and good but the police always end up breaking it up which makes it bad white people protest I've never seen where they broken up their protest it's a shame that we can't protest and it' be a good protest but the police seem to have a problem with it

  15. These cops are not connected to reality of what's going. They keep saying that the people have no reason to be angry or it's not like the way people are portraying them in a negative light. That's living in denial you watch video after video, news story after news story of not only illegal shooting, false arrest, planting drugs, violating people right, driving while drunk, making trumped up charges, let alone in some town in Texas on precinct they just arrested 16 cops the charges range from sexual assault to false are and fraud think about 16 cops one precincts and they keep acting like there's no major problem. Those 2 cops are delusional alot of cops want to kill people. Black on black crime is a direct result from the unjustified treatment minority get. Make it seem like its 2 or 3 bad cops its 1000s of bad cops all over the country now imagine the damage one bad cop causes imagine thousand of bad cops. People have to stop calling them heros for no reason and putting them on pedal stills for just wearing a gun and badge. I worked for a friend who had a bail bonds office and me and him went to countless dangerous areas to find and pick up people who jump bail unarmed paterson, dun can projects Jersey city, newark lots of bad areas and were scared but it's not like these cops make it out to be. Someone should total how many in armed people have been killed in one year and see how me armed cops get shot and killed every year i bet you the numbers not even close. Dont justify killing or hurting of police officers but they need to wake up continue defending criminal with badges and not protecting the people your suppose to protect from criminals. Yes bad cops are criminals and the one that are not news to grow some balls do there jobs and stop looking the other way or two afraid to say anything please already.

  16. One thing look at that Steinberg dude the billionaire in 1999 he was arrested for rape sexual harassment sextrrafficing and instead of going to trial he got a slap on the wrist and continue to do and now with the me too moved all the press they have to charge him they have convict them they dont want to but have no choice now unless they want a country wide riot

  17. They are lucky to only have faced one suspect. It dosent go well for cops when they have to fight ex military suspects. Cops are trained to bully, military is trained to kill
