      But then how will they play Simon says?

      Simon Says put your hands up

      Different Simon says get on the ground

      Third Simon says drop the gun, wait do they mean the phone?

      Oops, you listened to the wrong Simon, time to get 37 new holes in your body.

    At this point, it should be justifiable homicide to shoot police on sight. If I was on a jury, I’d never convict if the only victim was a cop.

    Police in the US exist solely to protect the rich, and their property. Period. Do not expect them to help you if you are not rich.

      also true for any other nation, one needs only to look at the role of police in suppressing dissent (see for eg the current police response to anti-israel protests in germany)

      Nope, they exist to protect THEMSELVES. A lot of their training centers around an “us vs them” mentality here in the US - they are taught that ANYONE who is not a police officer is willing to kill them at the drop of a hat, and they must do the killing before they are killed. There are seminars that teach this mentality, very well-attended by police.

      They might have protected the rich at one point, but now the only people they are truly taught to protect is themselves and other cops. Everyone else is a potential combatant and should be treated as such.

        Sure thing. That’s why the people they continually murder with impunity are almost always black. Don’t bother responding, I won’t see it.

    Until it is routine that police are routinely held accountable for unreasonable actions, this will not change.

    It is also telling that there are many in power that are against unions except for the police unions which constantly shield these officers from even going to trial for things a regular citizen would be.
