tfw you try to sympathise with the ACAB people and you really just can't because you would be dead without cops even though you know they're awful

I kind of find it hard to be mad at a group of people who have /literally/ saved my life idk

And I did think about becoming one but frankly I didn't want to be hated by my own community and it wasn't for me anyway.

I feel bad for victims of police brutality and I know the cops are genuinely more dangerous than the criminals in many places but my experience has differed so... yeah...

I know I'm going to get zero fediverse sympathy for this post because my praxis is police reform and not "eliminate" and I dont' really care that's just my feelings.

Y'all have your opinions and I'll have mine and we will just have to agree to disagree (and if you can't agree to disagree, then I'm not the right follow for you)

@Elizafox i think, if anything, that's even more of a reason to demand police reform and accountability.

nobody (except probably for actual violent/dangerous criminals) should see a police officer and think "are they going to help me or make things worse?".

@devurandom Yes. I want police whomst you can feel like you can turn to in an actual emergency, who are sensitive to the needs of the community, and understand that they are there to protect and serve the public, not protect and serve their interests.

@Elizafox i personally see "acab" not as a literal statement, but more like an expression of feelings (like "kill all men" or "ugh, cishets").

one _could_ say "not all men/cops", but they're missing the points that

1. still, a lot of men/cops
2. there is no way to instantly tell which men/cops are good and which are bad
3. the good men/cops are rarely holding the bad men/cops accountable for their actions
