I will never ever ever calls the cops. Doesn’t matter what kind of “what if” hypotheticals you throw my way to poke holes in my statement. Its against my principles to call on police or pretend that police have my or other humans best interests at heart.

"The police represent the most direct means by which the state imposes its will on the citizenry. When persuasion, indoctrination, moral pressure, and incentive measures all fair - there are the police."

"So long as the police defend the status quo, so long as their actions promote the stability of the existing system, their misbehavior is likely to be overlooked. It is when their excesses threaten this stability that they begin to face meaningful restraints... Token prosecutions, minimal reforms, and other half-measures may give the appearance of change... but they carefully fail to affect the underlying causes of brutality."

@mooncake disarm the police and military before disarming their victims

So what's a good alternative? Say what you will about the police, they're not going away unless there's a better option

LB: Good thread, worth reading.

Calling the police as a person with privilege, power, or whatever, doesn't ever really hurt you; calling them on less-privileged people could mean their deaths

@mooncake Happy pigs go to market, cops want to take you to market. I prefer pet piglets. Especially with post apocalyptic masks.
