It cracks me up when people rebel against the federal gov but when a local popo kills someone, they're right by their side

when the police kill anyone the general tendency is for people to side with whoever's been killed.

nah but maybe that's just what it seems like to me because that opinion is what I'm generally exposed to because of the sites and people I'm around. Especially if whoever was killed was a minority. Also police killings that aren't controversial don't tend to be reported so I guess I don't really know how people react to that.

Well it's actually the reverse in real life. Generally media portrays police officers as saints who when they shoot a black kid in 2 seconds they should get paid leave. It's a controversy because we think it's so obvious.

I think is cooler than media portraying 43 criminals as heroes and martyrs of the motherland and always pointing to the federal government, specially the president, and demanding his resignation and saying that is his fault when he didn't have anything to do with that actual problem, and everyone agrees just because he's an asshole.
