Whatchya gon... whatchya gonna do
Bad cops are usually protected by the ‘good’ cops.
Bad ministers are usually protected by the ‘good’ ministers.
This makes them all bad. Protecting a murderer or rapist from receiving punishment makes you an accomplice. Many police departments are accomplices to murder. Many churches are accomplices to child rape.
A few bad apples spoil the bunch. They aren’t a dismissible minority, they’re an infectious disease.
A few bad apples ruin the bunch. However, I think people misinterpret that as few bad = all bad, when the saying is actually about that specific misconception. Knowing that there are bad apples causes you to perceive more apples to be bad, despite the majority of apples being nice and crisp. Except baking apples, they suck.
@TheStarHawk, that isn't what that saying means at all. It means without removing the bad apples, the rest will get whatever makes the bad ones bad. The negative portion spreads. The bad thing ones make the rest bad, not throw off the perception. The only way to fix it is removing the bad ones.
@TheStarHawk, I agree, however I do think it's an important issue when the few bad apples start making people ded, get rid of those sour maggot filled apples and give me some scrumptious red delicious please good sir🙏
@TheStarHawk, absolutely not what that saying means. You stick two identical bowls of apples next to each other and put a spoiled apple in one and it causes that bowl to go bad much quicker than the other bowl. One bad apple will spoil the rest.
@TheStarHawk, Here is a good explanation for the source of this confusion on the saying: https://abcnews.go.com/US/bad-apples-phrase-describing-rotten-police-officers-meaning/story?id=71201096
@Board Stiff, Historically, there is a version of this proverb going way back; the earliest is from 1340 in English and probably earlier in Latin. The idea of the proverb then was to take this image of rotting that can have a corrupting influence on the apples nearby and using that as a kind of a metaphor to say, 'You have to be careful about a bit of wrongdoing in an organization or it could have this overall corrupting effect on an entire system. But by the end of the 19th century, the proverb seemed to disappear almost entirely, and when it returned in the 20th century, its meaning shifted in a significant way. Before the idea was that even one bad apple was enough to taint the whole group, and now the idea is, well, you can discount the bad apple because it's not representative of the entire group.
@TheStarHawk, it’s much easier for people to view a group as all bad or all good heaven forbid they actually have to think
@eleven, well greay areas arent allowed. Were a 1 dimensional people when it comes to good and bad
Anyone else noticed they added a phone notch into the meme?
But the problem is that many of the good police don’t turn in the bad police, don’t speak out against their rules, just keep their head down
Never had a good doctor, all mine have been idiots who didnt give a sh!t about me.
@GunLovingMerican, That’s because you’re supposed to be giving the stool sample, not expecting one from the doctor! What are you going to do with it, sniff it!?
@Mawaneu, well, yeah what else am i gonna do with it? It aint exactly play dough
Did you just compare black people to dogs
@Empshok, reminds me of a Mel Gibson quote
Defund the police
