aight so let’s take a poll here
It’s possible for a good person to be in the police, it’s not possible that ‘the police’ as an organisation are good.
i see! why not, friend?
(all cops are babies)
All cats are beautiful (put police person in the bin)
Have you heard of Sting?
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.
UK specific or worldwide?
I have had more negative experiences with the police than positive ones:
Hierarchical institutions are necessarily abusive too probs tbh
Nerds with power. Always a terrible thing.
Hopefully our own @ericthefourth with Serpico the fuck out of the Met.
As with all things as well, people who actively desire a position of authority/power are inherently unfit to hold that authority/power
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
