    I dont understand how some of you are just like "oh if i dont hate cops im not an anarchist" Anarchists (people in general) are not so well packaged. As you can see, a lot of the people on here hate what cops stand for and the authority figure, but not the people.

    I on the other hand feel that all cops are bad and that i would LOVE to hurt all cops, fuck them all. But i know people here disagree, but i dont think their not anarchists.

    I completely agree because I feel the same way about the police, however what I don't agree with is the part about "violence being answered with violence". I myself would be afraid to touch a cop, but then again I'm not tough or anything, in fact I am pretty much a bag of flesh with no useful purpose besides fucking over. Alas, I am afraid of prison bars and I would really fucking hate to get in trouble particularly because my sexual orientation dictates certain generalized characters of my thought process and mental reactions to certain situations when compared to straight people. Furthermore, I am sorry for the blatant racist remarks I made in the thread about the aggression of the United States of Amerikka in Asscrackistan. However if I made racist remarks about white Appalachian rednecks, no one would have a problem with it.

    Also, I am sorry but that was simply a broad idea I had after reading the entire thread up to that point, probably reflecting on your and Vegetarian Barbarian's posts...
    I really can't disagree with saying you don't want to offensively kill anyone (or defensively for that matter, unless this was some sort of vapire apocalypse or something? lol
    and i can't disagree that i don't want to defend cops, particularly those who not only abuse their power BUT ALSO they indulge in that profession to more closely align themselves with a certain political party line pertaining to how their beliefs are shaped by their job, but also what they believed in before becoming cops. what i mean is that like, most people always assume it takes a certain type of person to become a cop, however that is not always the case but typically i just think it's more common that it is the case. however their persona is mutilated and transformed in a certain horrible, graphic way i believe no matter how right wing they were.

    perhaps police departments should conduct psychological evaluations of every bush apologist war veteran that wants to be hired.

    Fucked up, ah?
    I can't even imagine why he became a cop...
    True photo though! Or at least that's what the supposed photographer said.

    (I know it's kinda off-topic but I thought it'd be an interesting thing to upload)

    But, on-topic, as a pot smoker myself I find myself or my friends getting with trouble with these guys just for that reason...Either we just look like stoners and get searched or we're just smoking a damn spliff, sitting down, talking, playing some cards, y'know? We're not hurting anyone, especially when all drugs are decriminalized here in Portugal but they they simply don't respect us and treat us like shit, doesn't really make me fall in love with them and the fucking law!

    And as the rest of the people said, they represent government, laws and opression...Not good things when you're an anarchist.

    A cops job is to hurt people. A cop will only protect someone if they happen to be in the right place at the right time, and they are under no obligation to help out, so its still not their job to help, but if they feel like it they might. But still, not helping, not really a reason to hate, just be disappointed. And hurting someone is sometimes a good thing if it is necessary to stop that person from hurting others. But unfortunately 90% of the harm done by police is against peaceful people who have hurt no one. So these people actively choose to take a job where there purpose is to hurt peaceful people. That sounds like something that might generate some hate.

    In my experience I have found cops to be just like everyone else. Some of them are trying to do good and some of them are just bullies from high school. Same could be said for every group of people.

    there are many reasosns cops exist, 99.9% are negative. One reason i haven't seen listed yet is to give communities a false sense of security.

    To protect and serve the rich.

    to get illeagel drugs and guns off the street... so they can turn around and resell them to cartels and third world countries.

    Fuck... I definitely know the feeling.. I get paranoid. lol

    I don't get pulled over by cops much really..

    One time when I was with my friends, a cop car pulled up slowly beside us. (I had my spiked leather jacket on, can't remember if I had my hawk or not then.. My friends just had normal gear on, normal hair cuts). Anyways, they basically searched the area, then started asking only me questions. Then they searched *only* me and looked at my ID then pissed off. The funniest part was, while they were too busy searching me, my friend stashed his weed in bushes.

    That is really my only cop story, guess I am lucky.

    Your first question: Nope.. You know what, for me that was a kind of serious incident. And the funny thing is they think that their always right. Just cope up with that and you'll be fine. :beer: :p

    Cops are a gang used by the government to protect the banks and property. They bully the working class and kill minorties. Cops force people to obey unjust laws. Cops murder people. Cops are the thugs used by the unjust system to oppress the people, and protect the banks and other corporations, and to oppress the Black and Chicano communities. The cops are just like anyother gang except they can't get arrested. The cops use violence and terrorism on drug dealers and users to stop them from doing drugs or selling them. The police are a Right-Wing terrorist group.

    Because they basically do whatever the fuck they want and get away with it most of the time because of their bullshit badges and government immunity. I can't tell you all the things that cops have done to people and gotten away with. Rape, murder, violence, etc.

    They just carry out the acts of oppression as the state stays behind the scenes.

    The police motto is to serve and protect, but they do not serve or protect the people. They repress and beat us into submission.

    not necessarily because in nazi germany there were probably a lot of people who hated being nazis but they were forced to be and also people have been forced though out histroy. also i think that after a while they would get sick of defending something that is not necessary[/quote]
    i think he was referring to neo-nazis but what youre saying is very true. it was either hate or die

    You cannot change the fascists if you kill them the other fascists will just kill you, you cant change them through violence or through pacifism. Really you cant change them you can just change yourself to make a compromise between violence and pacifism. Let them beat you, but never let them destroy you or your ideals.
