I hate that police can completely fuck up your life and there’s almost nothing you can do about it
Like there’s literally nothing you can do if a police officer decides he wants to fuck with you, for whatever reason. They can, and have, arrested people for bullshit charges that dont stick. Like “resisting arrest”, even though the victim isn’t moving at all  Or because you were filming an officer, which is absolutely legal  . Or any other reason they decide offends them. But they don’t care, because they won’t be punished for it. But you’ll still be arrested, and have to lawyer up, and go through the whole fucking hassle.
But they have ways to make charges stick too, like planting evidence. I’m sure many are aware of the cop who was recently exposed for planting drugs in people’s cars . How many innocent people were arrested and charged because of this? How many continue to be today? And what recourse do we have? Body cams could potentially help, but many times officers have covered up their cams or shut them off. Again, they aren’t punished for it.
Besides abusing their power to arrest, they can just beat the shit out of you, or use excessive force for whatever reason . Maybe because it makes them feel good, feel powerful. Or they like hurting people. i don’t know, but I do know there’s nothing we can do about, which might be the worst part. We resist, they use even greater force. We try to fight back, we’ll probably be shot at and killed. Nothing we can do, beside lawyer up, but even then any money is coming from the taxpayers, and the police officers, almost never punished.
That’s if we survive, of course. We’ve seen innocent people get murdered by police, and absolutely nothing comes of it If police come to your house with intent to kill you, there’s nothing you can do. If you have a gun and shoot back, you’ll likely be killed. Even if you are only arrested, you are absolutely fucked. You’ll have a hell of a battle trying to prove your innocence for sure.
So yeah, just a few examples of the ways police can just fuck up your life, and a few video examples to go along. I could show more examples, but hyperlinking is tedious. But yeah, mostly made this post just to rant, because all the injustice makes my blood boil. And figured this sub would be a good place to vent for obvious reasons about police abusing their power.
Edit: fixed hyperlinks
