Some serious shit going down in Baltimore:
Ward said the officers kept BB guns in their vehicles “in case we accidentally hit somebody or got into a shootout, so we could plant them.” He did not say whether the officers ever planted a BB gun on anyone.
(my emphasisi)

"Rogue agency" doesn't even begin to describe it.

The practice is so wide spread that the dictionary even has a term for it: drop gun.

This cop didn't use his gun against innocent civilians, just his fists.

Again no gun involved, just a Taser and a curb kicking, all for not crossing the street at an intersection.

Asheville police officer resigns after beating and choking suspected jaywalker

"(He) thinks it's funny," Hickman is heard saying as he chases Rush. "You know what's funny is you're gonna get f---ed up hardcore."

The officers catch Rush and tackle him. As Rush is being restrained on the ground, Hickman punches him in the head several times, shoots him with a stun gun and chokes him.

"I can't breathe! I can't breathe!" Rush repeatedly yells. "Help! Help!"

Later in the video, Hickman speaks with another officer.

"I beat the s--- out of his head," Hickman says. "Not gonna lie about that."

The cops didn't have to shoot to kill. They just laughed instead.

A video posted online on Friday shows California sheriff's deputies watching as an inmate with schizophrenia, who had been restrained in a chair for 46 hours, writhes on the floor of a jail cell and eventually dies.

The video, obtained by The Tribune of San Luis Obispo, Calif., shows deputies at times laughing as the prisoner, Andrew Holland, 36, lost consciousness and eventually died on Jan. 22, 2017.

His death was ruled as "natural" due to a pulmonary embolism resulting from a blot clot that traveled from his leg to one of his lungs, according to The Tribune.

No, of course not, so quite twisting facts to fit your narrative.

Do you think the cops have had no chances to shoot a white guy with a cell phone? Have they shot any?

Of course not, so "quite" twisting facts to suit your narrative.

They fired 20 times...

Just let that sink in.

They are not being trained to subdue or protect. They are being trained to kill.

I'm really tired of hearing about"rural whites" complaining that they are "under attack" because they can't sing Xmas songs in public schools.

"Under attack" means getting gunned in a hail of bullets in your own backyard.

Do you think cops should gun down anyone holding anything they can't identify perfectly?
Well, not if they're white, of course.

My brother's a fascist, lives in Palacios,
Fishes the pier every night
He hoslters his glock in a double retention.
He smokes while he waits for a bite.
He don't like the Muslims. He don't like the Jews.
He don't like the Blacks and he don't trust the news.
He hates the Hispanics and alternative views.
He'll tell you it's tough to be white.
