Who, me? Well I ain’t gonna lie – one of my favorite instagram accounts right now is @copsgettinghurt, so I guess I like it! I think if you choose a profession where your purpose is to protect the rich and the powerful against the interests of the working class, you should expect to get your ass beat. If you choose a profession rife with racism and misogyny, you should expect to have a molotov cocktail thrown at you. If you choose a profession where you proclaim to uphold the law, but are expected to take your fellow officer’s side when they’ve acted illegally, you should expect to be punched. If you choose a profession that proclaims to uphold colonial laws that were enacted with racist, sexist intentions, you deserve a curb stomp. If you choose a profession that’s responsible for for countless murders of unarmed citizens, you deserve to be hated. If you choose a profession that is literally used to maintain a modern day slave state, you should expect a massive beatdown in this life, and to be reincarnated as an NYC sewer rat in the next.
So you know where I stand, and don’t @ me with the “not all cops” bullshit because each and every cop gets into this profession because they believe in “good guys” and “bad guys” and have a myopic view of history and no understanding of societal context and far too many of them excuse, allow for or act on illegal behaviors themselves. If you’re a cop reading this and you think you’re one of the “good” ones, you need to dismantle your profession from the inside out because cops have only ever been used to enforce the rights of landowners and landlords, the elite, slave owners and wealth hoarders, and to keep the working classes firmly under their control.
If you made it to this point, then I think you really wanna see some cops getting hurt while they’re trying to pull some fuckery on the public. Here are some of my personal favorites from @copsgettinghurt, who’s doing a public fucking service in my opinion…
Also, shout out to Latin America – y’all have known for decades that cops are the enemy and you treat them right.
