Shots fired! Oh wait...
@tazzdx2, bro.. savage #bestworstcomments
*doesn’t understand* EXPLAIN EXPLAIN!
@Baby Cthulhu, during the recent Florida school shooting there were armed Broward County officers outside the school while the shooting was underway and refused to go in so they’re being regarded as cowards to my understanding.
@Atom bomb baby, 2005 court ruling cops are not required to protect the public
@rmagaly, yep only to enforce the law
@rmagaly, it’s even worse than that. They were following a mandate that came down during Obama’s presidency to decrease arrests at that school - which is why they never took action on all of the information that they had about the shooter being extremely dangerous.
@big freedom, can’t have arrests and honest police work, cause it just so happens to disproportionately target people of color, and that’s racist. Better just keep the police from being racist (or doing anything period). That’ll fix everything!
@PB2, right! I know, we can use data to lie! That’ll get us to the grand utopia that we’ve always wanted.
Ok look, I’m in a law enforcement admin class right now and we talked about this. The way it used to be in scenarios like this is (and probably the way the cop was originally trained) was that the cops were supposed to wait outside and wait for SWAT. While now yes, you are supposed to run in, you’re asking someone with a pistol to run in and face almost certain death against someone with a rifle. Someone with a family to go home to. We can sit on the other side of our computer screens and say “that’s the job he signed up for” all day long, and we’d be right. But not a single one of us can honestly say that we definitely would have charged in there, because until the time comes you don’t know. My prof has been in law enforcement for 22 years, worked on a swat team, the navy, was a special agent in the state department, and he says that usually the people with the biggest superhero complexes are the ones that break down when the time comes. You never know who’s really capable of bravery.
Wow we got a new way to convey cowardice now
Was this the robot chicken scene?

Hey, guys, read the description I wrote.
@The New Night Guard, Nevermind, I uploaded the same image a few days ago. I didn't realize this was someone else's.
@The New Night Guard, what was your description?
@big freedom, "Theodore Roosevelt once said it is wrong for the critic to judge the actions of the man in the arena when the critic wasn't even there, but he said nothing of judging the man who runs from the arena at others' expense."
