These comments are garbage. Did anyone read the article. They state that it is the governments objective to control the populace through a militarized police force. By declaring a war on police, it gives the illusion that there is a war in the first place, and justifies the beefing up of the police forces. It is a war on the people, not the police.

This probably is true but both you and the author haven't provided any evidence that it's true. Additionally, nobody has provided any evidence that the anti-police sentiment is some kind of conspiracy theory create a backswing pro-police sentiment.

It's a conspiracy, there is no "proof." But social memes have a long history of being started by interested parties. It's hard to separate them from organic ones, but demonstrating that someone with a position to orchestrate a social meme stands to benefit greatly from it goes a long way.

But this is just a conspiracy theory. There is absolutely no evidence that the police or the government had a hand in creating the anti-police sentiment.

There is evidence, actually. It's on police forums, in police pamphlets, statements from police chiefs, and so-on. The culture of Us VS. Them, blue shield of silence, police superiority is well documented. It's just not sitting in one plain english email from the POTUS saying "Dear Cops the public is your enemy pls kill them thx <3 Obummer." This is classic misdirection, honestly. Like no matter how much does add up about many of the conspiracy theories throughout American history someone has to sit there and say "well there is no smoking gun, so there is no evidence." There's plenty of evidence to form suspicion, at the least.

What seems far more likely is that the left is embarrassed that the stupid behavior of the BLM movement in fact really created an unwarranted anti-police attitude

Bias incoming.

and in typical leftist fashion

And here we have the crux of your argument. Not a pointed critique, but an anti-left viewpoint.

So now, it's not the BLM movement that caused this, it's a conspiracy of the government in order to piss off a bunch of people which will lead to a higher police presence....Ughhhh. Sometimes the left just pisses me off like nothing else.

It is truly laughable that you think the BLM movement, a super recent social movement, has some type of responsibility to the long held anti-police sentiment held throughout poorer segments of American society.

Forget Rodney King, forget race riots, forget all that stuff. Let's just focus on this super recent movement and blame them entirely for anti-police sentiment in this country. I don't know how that position can be taken seriously.

Most of our problems with police would go away very quickly with boby cams. Their is nothing like total accountability to weed out problems.

Agreed. It would be good for both good officers and for the people.

As an institution(as opposed to individuals), American police are a fifth column for fascism, but no one in officialdom dares say that, especially since they benefit from public cowardice and from the money the prison-industrial complex brings in. It's like when Skynet all of a sudden gets a mind of it's own and says "I'm in charge here now". The institution has outgrown it's role and should now be abolished before it metastasizes further.

I put 50$ on a federalized police force in 5-10 years.

During bush's terms in office over 2000 cops were killed and the conservatives didn't let out a peep, nor did Bush ever have a press conference giving his ideas on the subject. Now Fox is getting the mob together by creating this distracting meme.

I agree somewhat but have noticed a higher support for military solutions for international problems coming from conservatives. You rarely hear liberals saber rattling. President Carter was savaged by the conservatives for not going to war with Iran. I believe that the members of the Bush regime were set up to profit from a war and it served their interest for there to be a pretext for the Bush war in Iraq. History has shown that the Yemenis and Saudis who did the 911 terror acts had nothing to do with Iraq and that there were no weapons of mass distruction. If 911 hadn't happened then Bush would have found another excuse for war. His Daddy's' Carlyle Group and Cheney's Haliburton made billions on this criminality.

This 100%, the left and right blaming the opposite sides are part of the problem. Youre either a libertarian or authoritarian.

Not really considering I don't sell drugs, rape or rob or attempt to murder police officers. Turns out cops tend to only bother people who break the law.

Ah yes, the unbiased source known as "PoliceStateDaily."

There is a War on Cops, and the people denying it or making excuses for it are the useful idiots who will help usher in a real police state with federalized law enforcement, brought to you by the NSA.

A lot of the statistics they are throwing around in the article are quite aligned with what I am learning in my social problems class at the moment. The truth is, all data we receive that is related in any way to police officers or a police department including crime statistics, killings, filled complaint, etc. are all given to data analysts voluntarily by the department. This means that they get to edit and reshape the data to their liking before they hand it over and no one is allowed to check and see if it correlates. They aren’t even obligated to let the public know these numbers. (it is important to note that the US is not alone in the reporting issues with law enforcement) So if the data they give us shows that there is a problem, we wouldn’t be entirely forward to assume the problem is worse than what we are shown. Now, the way the article interprets the data is pretty forward but still the data is as close to truth as we can get. As far as the War on Cops, I think its more of a war between social classes that do not trust each other whatsoever. But “war” is very negative and violent so using this term alone is adding fire to the flame.

Do Jack boots taste THAT good, or is it just because your daddy taught you how to cop-suck as a child? Flag waving faggot.
