Police Department Celebrates Fourth Of July By Using Fireworks For Crowd Control

NEW YORK—In an effort to ease tensions with the public and restore their tarnished public image, the New York Police Department reportedly commemorated Independence Day this week by using fireworks for crowd control. “We’re hoping this festive display will help us all come together as a community to celebrate this great nation by shooting Roman candles into gatherings of protestors,” said Commissioner Dermot F. Shea, telling reporters that the department had a full artillery of stunning pyrotechnics at their disposal with which to subdue suspects. “We’ve already gotten a wonderful response from getting the chance to ooh and ahh at those brilliant plumes of red, white, and blue exploding into the faces of a cluster of marchers. In fact, the officers have been having so much fun, we might make it an annual tradition!” At press time, Shea had been forced to address complaints after an officer was filmed driving over a protester with a star-spangled parade float. \n

It might just be the tear gas talking, but this display of patriotism brings a slight but persistent tear to my eye. When do you start doing satire again? You wish! As if cops would waste time with fireworks when they have all that weaponry and ammo available. 4everNeverTrump You can’t really have satire anymore with trump playing *president.

Aurora police chief fires three officers who mocked Elijah McClain's deathNBC News Correspondent Gabe Gutierrez brings the latest from Aurora, Colorado where the Aurora police chief has fired officers who mocked Elijah McClain’s death near memorial site. If their social accounts still exist, please share. There’s some evening up to do. For the first time, everyone agrees the cops were wrong. Hmmmm.. Prison for the cops too. Also strip them of their cushy, police pension. Make them poor.

The US Declaration of Independence demands Americans abolish the policeSometime in the not-too-distant future, the date July 4 may become obsolete, marking a rebirth of a country alongside a new constitution and a new system of governance.

How police unions protect officers fired for bad behaviorCops who were let go for misconduct are being rehired with the help of powerful police unions. Since George Floyd's killing, these groups are under new scrutiny. FYou want cops to be held accountable it starts with the dismantling of police Unions. As long as there are police Unions scumbag cops, who don't go to jail, will continue to have jobs. FUCK POLICE UNIONS. Now Biden is a medical advisor with no proposals to activate the US economy. He has never had to attend a business, he has only lived from politics. Take to the streets to propose a better economy. It can't be true. Only trump knows. how many jobs have you done? JOBS REPORT SMASHES EXPECTATIONS‼️ 4.8 MILLION jobs created in June, beating the 3 million predicted -- LARGEST monthly gain on record! The economy beat expectations by 1.7 MILLION jobs -- more than the population of Hawaii. Well done President realDonaldTrump!

Wide shift in opinion on police, race rare in US pollingAP-NORC polling found wide shifts in public attitudes about racial injustice and police brutality after George Floyd’s death. Here are other examples of how public opinion evolves, from gradual change on other social issues to rapid partisan reactions. Unless the poll is done by Gallup they're irrelevant. When Texas, California and Florida decide to be independent and autonomous, Would we be happy if China decide to support that? It turns out after a few hundred instances of watching cops kill unarmed people in their custody that even the most jaded people start thinking 'hey maybe don't do that'
