Does a rotten apple in a barrel SPREAD the ROT, or do the healthy apples CURE it?

Hello:

When YOU look out upon society, most likely you see a canvas of law abiding citizens going on about their daily business.

When a COP looks out on society, they see a cop killer lurking behind every corner. Wouldn't you after this shit is pounded into your brain?

The dinkheller video is part and parcel of police training..

The Democratic Party let in the Communists and pandered to them, and now Noam Chomsky and JK Rowlings, both liberals, get cancelled by left wing, totalitarian cancel culture.

Looks like that's a yes.

I see Liberal cities being burned down by Communist front groups.

When a COP looks out on society, they see a cop killer lurking behind every corner.

Then why don't you become a cop and show them how it's done? Nevermind. The left wing CHAZ created their own police. 8 people got shot. Looks like the cops are better at being non killer cops than leftists are at being non killer cops.

Plus, when minorities become cops, the left calls them coons and Uncle Toms. Then they shoot them. Hard to diversify an institution that the left has no interest in diversifying.

Ever known a jerk at work? Did that make you a jerk?

The majority of cops are fine people. Stats support this. It's viral anecdotal YouTube videos telling partial stories that does not support this.

You're such an idiot. How can stats support something which has no clear definition and is largely a matter of opinion?

How about this? Stats support that you are a dickhead.

Look at that. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. It's usually spelling or grammar for you.

The data fails to support the narrative that violent, power mad racist predominate law enforcement. Failing to support this narrative does not support the opposite, that they are fine people. That part came from bias shaped by experience with many officers.

Hello A:

In short, even though I disagreed with Senate Republicans, I don't believe they were jerks.. But, now that they've run into into one, who can BLOW their careers out of the water with ONE JERK tweet, they've ALL become jerks..

It's not quite the same, or is it????

Is your analogy that law enforcement generally is like Republican Senators specifically? And further, that a bad cop in law enforcement affects the whole industry the same way the President affects 53 Senators?

No, it's not quite the same.

Apples do not get a choice of when or how they rot. The comparison is moot. One person being a jerk doesn't mean you will automatically be a jerk, you have a choice. I believe the majority of cops ARE very fine people who just want to do good in their community. I also believe some may need to undergo training for a mindset that may be many decades old. Understanding the source of the issue and weeding out those that, even with training, are letting power get to their heads, needs to happen.

I agree with you, but at the same time I think you have to remember that much of the evil throughout history has been committed by people with good intentions.

The analogy does not follow as police officers, unlike fruit, have free will. The argument does not stand.

In fact, individuals such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spread the "good" in society.

I do not believe you can prove that police officers have any more free will than pieces of fruit.
