It’s possible for a good person to be in the police, it’s not possible that ‘the police’ as an organisation are good.

Because they are fundamentally and institutionally broken as a result of the systematic destruction of the concept of “community” over the last 40 years.

Fine one on one. Two or more in a room are insufferable.

#16

Hierarchical institutions are necessarily abusive too probs tbh


#17

Nerds with power. Always a terrible thing.

Hopefully our own @ericthefourth with Serpico the fuck out of the Met.


#18

As with all things as well, people who actively desire a position of authority/power are inherently unfit to hold that authority/power


#19

I worked for the police for a bit, perhaps unsurprisingly dominated by people with authoritarian type personalities, a few good ones, but they tend to not do so well in such a hierarchical command and control culture
