Video shows police destroying medical station at North Carolina protest; mayor looks for answers

Police is completely out of control. I do get that there are good cops out there, and it's possible they outnumber the "bad cops", but damn, is is absolutely stunning watching all of the excessive police violence against peaceful protesters and innocent bystanders. Really makes me think just what is the good to bad cop ratio? Do we really have more good cops than the bad ones?

Didn't see any "good cops" in that video stopping their colleagues from destroying a city sanctioned medical station and supplies.

Edit: I wonder how many of them will receive any kind of disciplinary action.

These are more of us than there are them.........they cannot be allowed to go on under the guise of being Police! If they truly were Police and if there truly were any good Police that would have been stopped!!

What is sad is the Police always say I thought I saw a gun or i heard somebody say they saw a gun......then according to our rigged justice system that gives the cops permission to kill with no repercusions!
More Police brutality----

Sean Monterrosa, 22, of San Francisco died after the shooting at around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, but police did not tell the public the man was killed — or disclose the circumstances of the shooting — until Wednesday at a news conference outside City Hall, a day after calling in 50 troops from the National Guard to help control protests and rioting sparked by the Minnesota police killing of George Floyd.

In a Wednesday afternoon news conference, Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams said the officer believed he saw the butt of a handgun poking out near Monterrosa’s waist, and opened fire “due to this perceived threat.”

On another front...we have Hannity going off and as usual being disngenuous and claiming he is not a White Dude of privilege....
Then we have poor Fucker Carlson who appears to be a little kid who is confused and can`t make up his mind...lolol

Also saw this tidbit in Philly

monday: Di Bruno Bros cafe/market has a sign out front saying they offer free lunch to the philly pd

yesterday: Di Bruno Bros puts out a letter saying they're sorry for being fucking tone-deaf, no more free lunch for cops, and they're donating to BLM and the NAACP

this morning: the Philly FOP president announces a city-wide cop boycott of Di Bruno Bros

No loss, they weren't making money by giving handouts to cops anyway.

Edit: I'm curious as to how many cops accepted the free meals and how often. Other government workers would get fired for accepting gifts from the people they serve.

I've honestly gotten to the point where I feel like every single police department needs to be gutted, top down. I cannot see another path to positive resolution at this point.
