March For a World Without Police

1 of 66

 

 

Denver's third annual March For a World Without Police began at Sonny Lawson Park on October 20, 2012. The anti-police brutality event, supported by groups including Occupy Denver, then continued through the streets of downtown before collecting members of the 2012 Zombie Crawl and ending in multiple reported arrests.

i think if they want a world without police they should have their mothers beaten and robbed....then we will see how much they say "fuck the police"

 @rockiesfever Since when do police PREVENT anyone's mom from getting beaten and robbed? They always show up after the fact....Talking crap and acting like fools......

 @betweenthelines  @rockiesfever Did I say they prevent it?? No. But they investigate and arrest the criminal who does. All these dorks who think we would be so much better off without law enforcement become sniveling little girls frantically dialing 911 when they become the victim of crime. I have seen it happen. Just ask one of the many women who were raped at the various occupy protests around the country who they called to report it.....it certainly wasnt the idiot wearing the v for vendetta mask

 @rockiesfever  @Your_Attorney  @betweenthelinesYou chose not to read any of it because it is clearly demolishes your pathetic little fantasy of cops being these "saviors" so you insist on carrying on with your little hypothetical, never mind that the very first concern in that situation is to get medical assistance. A pig can't do jack squat for me or a loved one lying a pool of my/their own blood.   If the perp is unidentifiable, the case goes cold; if the per is identifiable, more likely than not, most of the urban poor would rather dispense their own brand of "justice" rather than wait for a corrupt system to hold them temporarily and then release them on a technicality (which happens quite frequently in many American cities).  This isn't a story, couch potato; this is harsh reality.  Pigs do not "protect & serve."  They are little more than thugs with badges.

 @Your_Attorney  @betweenthelines I did not even read all of that. The bottom line is if i showed up at your house and pistol whipped you and your wife, took everything you own, and left you for dead....if you made it to a phone... who would you call? end of story.

Eh....no. The "investigation" is only as useful as those doing the investigating are interested in pursuing closure. The poor and downtrodden are least likely to benefit from police protection and the most likely to be fodder for unethical or even illegal entrapment by law enforcement. The safety and interests that the piggies protect and serve are those of the rich elite and other "very important" people (i.e. upper middle class voters in suburbia). They do not "serve the people." They are an arm of the state, nothing more. You can go through any police dept records of active and cold cases (assuming they don't try resist any request by members of the press or general public, which they often do) and see how the rates of unsolved murders have steadily risen in spite of more manpower, better DNA analysis, and computerized records. "Just ask one of the many women who were raped at the various occupy protests around the country who they called to report it"Funny you should mention Occupy, considering that in Denver and NYC, workers with municipal agencies were caught intentionally dumping homeless and mentally ill persons into areas where the Occupy protesters camped out as a means to "stir the pot."  It is also suspected that the Oakland PD was behind the riots in that Occupy camp as a means to undermine an otherwise peaceful protest on behalf of rich banksters (fraudsters) and real estate developers. But go ahead and keep believing the myth of "to protect and serve." In reality, it's justice to the highest bidder. Pony up.
