"Oh, so that's what we're going to do today? We're gonna fight?" - Red Foreman
@The Lifeguard, fascinating, there are almost as many comments as there are upvotes or downvotes!
*sigh* I feel like every other picture has a politically charged comment section on this app now. I feel like an old timer when I say this, but I miss the good old days on this app.
@4th Hokage, Yeah politics arent funny and the people that talk about it are even less funny. This app needs to stay pure yet theres certain individuals ruining it.
@4th Hokage, I feel like this not only on this app, but everywhere. Everything is about race now, were all just human.
@DrawinAblank, what race is a care bear?
@Assetone, depends which color obviously
@DrawinAblank, race isn't about color. People from India and whites are both Caucasian race
@4th Hokage, I'm at the store.
@4th Hokage, yup. Everyone's opinion is the absolute truth and if you disagree with them in the slightest you're considered un-American, a ReThuglican, a Libtard or worse.
I wish Stuckpixel would do a better job of screening these types of posts. As you alluded to earlier, I came for the funny to smile and laugh, not to engage in a flame war. Save that crap for Facebook.
@4th Hokage, I'm a polisci student who has to eat-breathe-live politics almost 24/7. Even my very limited social media is mostly politics. This app used to be my escape
@DrawinAblank, everything is about race now because they're pushing it at us to create a race war and destroy America. They are the corrupt ones who crave power and don't care how many have to die in the process. When Trump said he go after the corrupt politicians and then he won the election they really freaked out and got scared. They were going to change our society and gain power step by step using less propaganda over a longer period of time like the Nazis did, but Trump getting in office really made them accelerate their plans so much that it became obvious to us that they are cramming things down our throats. The left owns the mainstream media and Twitter and Facebook. China owns Hollywood and would like to see America collapse. Also the NFL/NBA bow to the bots on Twitter and the orders of China. George Soros funds the Marxist groups black lives matter and antifa.
It's not about race.
It's all political.
It's all anti-America.
It's all anti-Trump.
It's all about propaganda.
@payton manning, Hey Jamaal
Maybe dont kill someone over the use of a fake $20 bill while they are begging to breathe?
@Slampire Poetry, remember, that cop and his wife underreported over $400,000 in income and owe almost $22,000 in unpaid taxes
@Slampire Poetry, not saying he deserved to die. But the drugs and covid definately had some effect on the situation.
@Mag3rPayne, if you’re not saying that why even bring it up
@Dweeebus, to open people's eyes that it's not just the police, criminality has an effect too.
@Slampire Poetry, everyone agrees about this. You don't win political points for saying obvious things.
@qwertee, I don’t agree. Stop assuming you know me.
@Child Slapper, you still owe me $20. I want my $20 back.
Or maybe just have police not use deadly force against every single assailant they encounter?
@StoneFarb, maybe tell the criminals to stop using deadly force for everything they do?
@voided sanity, Breonna Taylor was sleeping in her home
@voided sanity, I agree, we should hold police to the same standards we hold criminals to, good plan.
@StoneFarb, traffic cops don’t need to have guns on them for every stop, no knock warrants should be illegal, officers should be required to be in uniform if on duty and not undercover, no immunity for cops that murder civilians, end civil forfeiture, stop the militarization of the police, and “I was afraid so I killed the unarmed person” cannot be a legal defense that holds up in court. In short, most liberals just want police held to the same standard that we hold everyone else to. I also think police should be trained and paid significantly more, make it an aspirational job and make it more a public service than a domestic occupation force. If every time there is a riot we need to call in the national guard, because cops beat and kill people trying to suppress it, then maybe the police can’t and shouldn’t handle volatile situations like that.
@Spetsnaz , Not to mention don't rely on the cops for every single problem. Delegate those duties to relevant sectors: The force stops being overstressed and jobs are created.
@Pvt BB Ghanoush, I mean. Her boyfriend shot first. I get what your saying and better training should be done for the officers. But just saying she was sleeping in her home when a cop came up and shot her is misleading.
@NameyMcNameFace, saying her boyfriend shot first is misleading. He shot because the cops busted into her apartment (the WRONG apartment), didn’t identify themselves, and weren’t wearing uniforms. That’s what we call a home invasion, when multiple people armed and in plain clothes just burst into your home in the middle of the night and will not identify themselves. Honestly don’t know how someone would react otherwise, it’s not like when you hear someone break into your house you think “ah I’m sure they’re just well meaning but idiotic police officers, back to bed”
@Pvt BB Ghanoush, Simply trying to provide facts and context to your statement: the police who raided her home had a "no-knock warrant". Those are incredibly difficult to obtain and had to convince a judge beyond a shadow of a doubt that there were illegal goings-on taking place there. According to the police report, while the police did fire into the home, they did so because Breonna's boyfriend fired at them first, so they acted in self defense. Also, in an analysis I watched, it stated she was shot more times than the police fired and from multiple angles. So it is reasonable to infer in the chaos, her boyfriend also shot her, most likely by accident. Any loss of life in tragic, but police need to be able to stop criminal activity wherever and however they can to keep the general public safe. And they need to be able to protect themselves so they can protect and serve others. If nothing else, please do your own research and don't just accept what the media says blindly.
@Spetsnaz , Time out. You really think undercover cops should be illegal? Huh. So your pro drugs and organized crime. Understood. And the national gaurd eh? Yes. Great plan. Instead of horses and hoses for riot control lets use tanks and fully automatic weapons and deploy a literal branch of the military across the country every single time theres a riot. Great plan. By the time they deploy and get there the riot will be over and the city half burned down ^-^ Excellent plan. And not to mention the huuuuuge tax expenses it would be to literally deploy a branch of the military everytime the population gets a little rowdy. Great plan genius.
@LaDarkProphet, dang you can’t read, must be rough. I literally mentioned “unless off duty or undercover” secondly, we already use the NG for riot control. No change there, they already respond in under 12 hours, it’s literally part of the purpose of the NG. Thirdly the executive branch is currently using federal officers as an executive army to put down protests at taxpayer expense, and against the wishes of local governments, but you didn’t mention that. But if you want to ignore all the points I made and argue against a straw man you just made up be my guest, at least you’ll be able to sound coherent arguing with your imaginary friend.
@Spetsnaz , actually they went into the apartment. The apartment was the correct apartment. The dealer the picked up earlier in the day was followed and was found to go to her apartment, picking up a package and going to a drug house ten miles away. As well as a car that was in her drive way having drugs in it.
Idk about them not announcing themselves as I wasn’t there. They said they did, but the judge did sign off on the no knock warrant. Sounds like police were set up to fail. And they need better training.
@Spetsnaz , Ah. No, not illiterate just misread that one tiny statement. All my other points still stand. And no, we actually do not use the National Gaurd for every riot. We only use the Gaurd when the states local police force are incapable of handling a extremely large protest OR, like in Seattle, you have a local representative incapable of restoring law and order. If all 50 states suddenly had a riot in them, and it was illegal for police officers to respond, it would be utter chaos. Most Riots dont last for more then 6 hours let alone 12 hours. And you still cant seem to understand the difference between federal officers and the national gaurd. One has access to horses the other has tanks. One uses hollow points the other uses armor pericing rounds.... So no, not a straw man at all actually my retaliatory freind. And if a local government is incapable or unwilling to restore peace and order, like in Seattle, then using federal officers is a creative solution (TBC)
@Spetsnaz , (Fin)
And if a local government is incapable or unwilling to restore peace and order, like in Seattle, then using federal officers instead of the armed forces is a creative and cheaper solution. Using federal officers, who are already local, is much, much, much cheaper then deploying the National Gaurd. But hey man, you do you and belive in whatever you want.
At the end if the day every second counts when a riot starts. If your willing to wait upwards of 12+ hours of pure anarchy while local and federal police sit on their hands as they wait for the national gaurd to deploy and mobilize then you are a braver person then I am. I am much more content with an immediate response. Just a quick question, and i admit this is a side tangent and much closer to an actual strawman, but does that mean you also think firefighters and paramedics should be contained during riots until the national gaurd can restore order potentially 12+ hours later? (FIN)
@voided sanity, you’re not just wrong, you’re stupid.
@StoneFarb, as both a policemin and craminal, I can relate to and support both sides of this argument. I am DEFINITELY not just passionate about trolling.
@Spetsnaz , idk where you’re getting your information from but first: it was not the wrong apartment. Second: idk where you heard they were in plain clothes, but even plainclothes units don’t serve warrants without, at the very least, body armor that says police on it. Third: as to wether they announced themselves or not: it’s the word of police officers vs the word of a guy who shot a police officer. You can believe whoever you want. Maybe he truly didn’t hear them, but there’s no reason for them not to announce themselves, because obliviously it increases their chances of getting shot at.
@StoneFarb, good thing only 0.00001% of all police interactions end in a death.
@CocoasBro, it's still approximately 1000 deaths/year according to the most recent data. For every death at the hands of police, you need to ask yourself two questions: A) Was the assailant so overtly violent that police couldn't possibly deescalate using non-lethal methods? and B) Did they commit crimes so heinous that warrant a death sentence? Nearly all of the time, the answers to both will be no. Sometimes, the "criminals" were not only compliant and non-violent, but also innocent of any crime whatsoever, like Elijah McClain as one (of far too many) examples. It's a systemic problem, and you know it.
@StoneFarb, no you dont lets just assume that all 1004 of those deaths were like george floyd. Lets be overly generous. Thats still out of over 800,000 cops interacting with thousands of individuals a year. So its 1004 out of hundreds of millions.
@CocoasBro, dude, it's human life. Any number over 0 is unacceptable. Just think about the sheer number of variations of non-lethal weapons the police have access to. Think about all the times when the assailant was subdued, yet the police still chose to continue tasing, continue kneeling on necks, injecting ketamine. I understand their lives are risk, but proper deescalation and use of non-lethal force should be reducing the number by nearly 100%.
@StoneFarb, and the number of people pulling guns on the police should be 0% the number of people being burned alive and beaten in the streets by far left racists should be 0. Unfortunately thats not how the world works. Tazers dont always work. Mace has a limited range. Bean bags hurt but it cant go through car windows, and wont garauntee a KO. The cops are not ninjas they cant teleport behind offendors and karate chop their neck and knock them out. Youre living in a fantasy world.
@StoneFarb, also you cannot always de-escalate a situation. Some people cannot be reasoned with. This is the real world where cops pull a guy over for a brake light out only for the dude to pull a gun on them giving the officer less that 1/4th of a second to respond.
@StoneFarb, every single one? I know every time I get a speeding ticket the officers mace and taser me for fun, but I thought it was just me!
@CocoasBro, 100% correct. We are entirely too comfortable painting all police interactions as so easy to de-escalate as though it's an easy job. Stonefarb, most cops are good and do de-escalate. Some don't. They are bad cops who should be fired and prosecuted. If you're acting like everything is so easy then I'm going to assume you have zero knowledge of the intricacies of the work.
@TheWhiteKnightmare, they went to the wrong appartment and shot someone who wasnt committing a crime, but keep making excuse after excuse as to why Breonna and the boyfriend were the real bad guys and the cops were justified. Never heard such sleep-walking statements in my life.
@insomopus, as @LaDarkProphet stated above, and was supported by my own research and reading; the police indeed, did not enter the wrong apartment. They had a no-knock warrant for their apartment that had enough known illegal activity going on for a judge to sign off on it. I'm not offering excuses, I'm simply stating facts for context. Did she deserve to die, absolutely not. Were the police justified, based on the evidence presented, I'm going to say yes. I'm not sure where the information that they entered the wrong apartment came from, but if you can share an official report or unbiased news story, I'll happily read it and adjust my views. But as it stands, I believe this was a justified operation by the police to make the neighborhood safer that unfortunately ended with a woman losing her life. I feel I put in a good amount of effort into learning about this case so I don't think "sleep-walking" is an appropriate way to categorize my previous post.
People have choices they make in their lives. Some people make poor ones
@Mag3rPayne, everyone makes poor ones. It’s the idiots who continue to do so.
Uh oh... *Grabs popcorn*
Pretty sure Ironman's throwing money would work fine.
@vampirefork, if we throw money at social workers and social programs it would definitely help. If I am having a melt down I would prefer a trained professional is sent to my home and not a officer whose only means of de-escalation is to shoot me. We ask too much of police officers. Dealing with situations like that should not be their responsibility. Respond to a shooter with shooting if necessary. Respond to a social issue accordingly. Also, if you are going to be armed like the military you should also be held accountable like the military.
@Assetone, Huh. And here i thought police officers were not issued with tanks, armor pericing rounds and fully automatic weapons and helicopters with .50cal gatling guns capable of firing 6000rpm.... No... no wait... i was right about that. That stuff is not issued to the police.
Or maybe invest less in police having literal military gear like tanks that they never use and invest more in social programs that prevent people from *becoming* criminals to literally make the job of the police easier. Legit, they have to deal with so much! How can they they have proper training to deal with car accidents, armed robbers, domestic disputes and mentally unstable people? (to name a few of the things we call the police for). No wonder they respond inappropriately to some situations! You see them dealing with a mentally unstable person like an armed robber. Maybe if some of those jobs could be relegated to people more prepared to deal with them we would see less mess ups.
I'm sorry sir this is Funny Pics. We don't do politics here
@Genieinabotle, it's funny for us. Really funny
Sorry bud, we literally live in a city that started social health detectives and police task force. So people with legit mental health issues don’t clog up jail cells, or domestically abused people get help instead of committing suicide in prison. We also have Haven for Hope so homeless don’t overcrowd hospitals and the jail. Dallas PD just started implementing a public health team to helps. When it’s implemented well, it works
Uh, excuse me, "criminal" is offensive. You're supposed to say "legally challenged."
“Rodney King! Rodney King!”
Airheads? Anyone? Anyone?
USE YOUR WORDS!!!!
I'm no liberal but I sure would like money love and weed. That'd get me to not wanna kermit crime.
@StiffWood, what you got against Kermit? Green Lives Matter too.
It's real simple- treat the police with respect and u won't get killed. I say yes sir no sir when I talk to them. Believe that $hlt
@dj evolve fan club, same. While getting arrested I said “This May sound weird at the moment, but I respect cops. Thank you for your service” and they treated me so nicely!!
@Child Slapper, was that the time u got arrested for slapping other people's children?
It's funny because it's true
Damn liberals, they should be like that country that lost against the USA and not look at memes....... d@mn commies
Think you could beat a care bear? I think not.
This is peak performance
With Elon Musk and Teddies putting on light shows?
Fake. The Dems just want to control everything as usual. Just like a few decades ago when they “defunded” the military and now they have that.
All they want is the cops to stop going kill crazy on POC already
You never know, it might work
