- Peace on Earth, goodwill towards all
To me, it seems as though police departments recruit such individuals and train it into them. It's long been typical of police departments to seek out and to receive military type training and military type equipment. It's easy to blame this on the drug war. It's more accurate to blame this on the over-proliferation of weapons. Period.Sorry about the frothing * wipes up keyboard with towel*. Yeah, I guess you were speaking in generalities about hate, but the OP is about the Tyre Nichols case in particular, which your answer doesn't seem to address. To me, the Tyree case looks to be about some police officers with anger issues, sadistic tendencies and on a power trip. They should never have been cops in the first place.He asked why we all hate each other so much. Those are the usual reasons. Your frothing response is not disproving my assertion.In the Tyre Nichols case? Five black men beating up another black man? Do all five black police officers hate black people, and that's why they did it? Or is their some "behind the scenes" racisim involving non-blacks to explain the situation? And if so, what is the other race responsible? Chinese? Native American? White? Pacific Islander?Racism and class violence.Why do you people hate each other so much?
Police are supposed to exist to serve and protect the population. Not serve as an occupying force.
