nomoresanity, you better than most should understand imperialism, and how the past half millennium is characterized by a certain form, creating subaltern peoples from the Americas to Asia.

You clearly support the police uncritically. I conclude that this is important to you, so never mind.
I know. It's hard, maybe even exhausting, for you. That's okay--just get some rest.

touristunfriendly, that story surprises you as it would many people.
There are some citizens, however, who are so married to the status quo and powers that be that it would devastate them psychologically to think that the criminal justice system is not pristine.

UCSB's star basketball player, Alan Williams, from Phoenix was pulled over multiple times by the same cop here in SB. He kept his chin up, but eventually broke down and called his mother. She called Cam Sanchez and the harassment stopped abruptly. I do not know the disposition of the officer.

If you admire the cop in the report above I can understand why everyone who is not a cop is likely unsavory to you.
I am against all crime but you are only against crime until committed by police, who can do no wrong.

Jarvis, be fair, please. The "unsavory types" are frequently the police. If you admire and identify with this cop, then we have very different ideas of what "unsavory" means.

I agree with you. I think your condition goes along with being a police apologist, aficionado of all power, and colorblind.

It must be wonderful to be not just a police apologist, but an aficionado of all power, ignoring its abuses... and to be colorblind, to boot!

Jarvis, what makes John Crawford an "unsavory type"? Are you superior to him?
