Re: Typical cop logic
Note icon and bypass this post if you choose.
"Heavy handed stuff like this just ends up wasting taxpayer money when the cops inevitably lose and then get sued themselves for overreach."
And therein lies the problem. Will they sue? Apparently...not.
Fight for the Future has called on Atlanta lawmakers to drop the charges against the trio and vote no on funding Cop City. The digital rights group also wants to see Congress defend protesters' free-speech rights...
As usual, whine and 'march for justice'...as if the Powers that Be care. The only thing the PtB care about is *their* power and money, but all too often [the opposition] is just too spineless to tackle them head-on, against that truth. So, nothing changes much.
Hitting them in the pocketbook is all that the PtB care about. The Plod will continue doing what they are doing, empowered by the authoritarians that they court in government, because funding will never be cut off - "Own the Libs". Fight for the Future is simply barking at a tree, as if the police and their government really cares.
They'll only care when you (help) bankrupt them. Financial war is the only thing that works in today's world, hit them where it hurts, make them pay. Sue them for every possible thing you can pin on them, plus maybe a few things you can't just for good measure :D
