This wasn’t a “too much pollution” problem, any more than Flint, Michigan was.
Like Flint, this was a “too much racism and corruption” problem

Yeah, “save you in a heartbeat”. Sure, buddy. They literally are under no legal obligation to save you. You probably slow down under the speed limit when you see a cop because they’re such great people to be around. Cops around here won’t even show up for a murder in progress, they tell everyone call when it’s done and they’ll “investigate”. This is their way of pretending they’re abiding by the federal consent decree they had to join years ago which they have never followed yet keep complaining they’re too restricted by its contents.
Clearly wherever you live the cops are all puppy dogs and rainbows, but I’m pretty sure literally every town and city in the rest of the country turned out massive protests last year because their local cops are so horrible and don’t do jack sh$t for anyone but themselves.
Cops stand around and listen to your kids get slaughtered, then LIE about engaging the shooter, then LIE about the lies about engaging the shooter.
Cops rob people, then LIE about the crime to cover up their criminal activity. (Baltimore PD being the biggest example, but it happens almost everywhere)
Cops commit sexual assault on the job then they LIE about it to avoid being prosecuted.
Even more recent example, a guy posts on facebook making fun of his local cops, then they had him arrested and LIE about why he was put in jail. They even LIED about having qualified immunity from being sued for wrongful arrest. https://www.npr.org/2022/10/04/1126699814/the-onion-supreme-courts-parody-law-enforcement-anthony-novak-parma
There is not a single police precinct in this nation where the bad officers are a minority. The article I linked you to was one of the allegedly good cops and his fellow officers beat him to death and then LIED that it was a training mishap.
Keep holding onto the LIE that there are good cops, tho. Maybe the next good cop will NOT get beaten to death by the bad ones, if we’re lucky.
LOL. Firefighters save you from burning cars, not cops.
The past two years have shown me what I’ve always heard about the medical community: they’re not interested in fixing the cause of your condition, they’re just interested in alleviating the symptoms
I’m pretty sure Ime Udoka had an actually inappropriate relationship, and I question its consensual nature. My guess is they threw consensual out there to cast doubt on her side of the story, so they could absolve him at a later date. In court this takes the form of questions like “what was she wearing when she got raped?” by putting the onus on the victim to prove a negative (i.e. they did NOT consent) which is nigh impossible.
This is like when Baltimore police formed a special anti-gun task force, and they got “results” by busting people for gun-related crimes, then robbing them, then turning the cameras on and pretending they happened to discover — for instance — a safe that just happened to have already been open which also just happened to have more “evidence” to use against people. They even employed a guy who trafficked in stolen goods who got a cut of the action.
Haven’t been, but I bet Ding Dong has a nice ditch.
At any rate, there are real towns in Texas named Oatmeal and Pancake, and I actually have been through them both.
IF you notice some of the releases before Udoka was suspended, they said things like “inappropriate, yet consensual” and there is absolutely no way you get suspended for an actually consensual relationship.
And if you want further proof that Udoka screwed up something serious, consider that Matt “drove across state lines to punch Derek Fisher for dating his ex-wife” Barnes came out strong in support of Udoka, then did a complete 180 when someone close to the situation filled him in on the facts. When you’ve lost a guy like Matt Barnes, you done messed up real bad.
