Dude, many of them have been in police depts for years. In NYC, for example, many White police officers in the NYPD, before the 90s in NYC, came from Long Island, from predominantly White communities. Now it has a lot more non-White officers because of the pressure they received to hire them, especially after so many unarmed, Black men were killed by White officers, but it didn’t seem to stop the brutality or killings.

But now, in these times, I would not be surprised if a lot of racists attached to hate groups are joining. Reminds me of a scene in Spike Lee’s movie, ‘Black Klansmen,’ when the KKK guys were trying to get some of their members to join police depts.

But in reality, one would be a fool to think they’re not inside many police depts in this country.

Exactly. That’s why I ask “JOINING??? “.... Racists have been in police forces for centuries. In many localities, the police forces grew out of what were originally “slave patrols”, that hunted down runaway slaves

Now this is scary. I always knew many of them were joining police depts, and I bet it’s usually the ones who do the mist harassments and killings of unarmed Blacks. And some folks wonder why many are protesting against these types of fake-ass cops. This place s e a fly why there ‘has’ to be major changes in holding police accountable, because of these types of racist police joining just to intentionally harass and deaths lives of people of color. Talk about the ‘evil’ within many police depts. smh.

CULTURE
How White Supremacist Cops Use 'Ghost Skins' to Stay Hidden—According to One Former Neo-Nazi

BY JANICE WILLIAMS ON 9/14/20 AT 12:38 PM EDT


Frank Meeink, a former neo-Nazi who inspired the 1998 film American History X, is making people take a second look at the police. In an interview with The Daily Beast he alleged that white supremacists he formerly knew, are now cops.


Meeink opened up about his experience with "ghost skins," a practice white supremacists use to hide "overt displays of their beliefs to blend in" with the general public. According to Meeink, nationalist leaders with ties to law enforcement would often vet members of the neo-Nazi group he was affiliated with in the 80s and 90s, and some of his former associates are now policemen.

"I know that there are neo-Nazis who I used to run with who are now cops," Meeink said. "And that's just in my crew. Imagine how many neo-Nazis and white nationalists have been becoming cops? Three of the people in my crew alone became cops."

Meeink said nationalist leaders and high-ranking members of the Ku Klux Klan like David Duke would encourage young people within the organization to join the police force, and Meeink recalled one rally in the 90s when they were told to "cover up our swastikas, grow our hair out, and become cops."



"I know of at least three of the people at that meeting who became cops," he said.

Meeink claimed the purpose of neo-Nazis and other white supremacist hate groups joining the police force was primarily to disenfranchise people of color—Black people especially—by targeting them specifically during arrests and placing heavy charges on them that could potentially affect their rights.


The Fourth Amendment is violated all the time by the cops, and in these meetings, they would say, 'Yeah—and when we become cops we'll get them on felonies so they can't vote.' That constantly went around," Meeink said. "We need to get all these white nationalists out of the police force. There are so many racist cops. And I know a lot of cops."

The article is about white supremacists joining police departments, who belong to known hate groups who hate Blacks. So imagine what their attitudes are like when approaching Black American citizens. A policeman’s job is to protect Americans of all races, not to join just to harass and hurt Black American citizens.

White supremacists have been joining police depts for years. This is not new.

Furthermore what does the article have to do with your niece and Black gangs??

Yep, just like judges, lawyers, politicians, etc., that were members of white supremacist groups. Those who join those groups are insecure and in fear of the progress of Black Americans in this country or they wouldn’t go through so much trouble to try and destroy their lives. Just like how trump used the immigration issue to degrade Latino immigrants because of the fear of the Browning of America, that’s going to happen no matter how many devious tactics, folks like trump and his cronies try to do.

OMG... that is some scary shit.



"The 126 images shared included swastikas, a fabricated picture of a refugee in a gas chamber and the shooting of a Black man, officials said.

The number of cases of far-right extremists in Germany’s police and military, some of whom hoard weapons and keep lists of enemies, have multiplied in recent years. On Monday, the authorities raided the home of a 40-year-old soldier in connection with an investigation of a suspected far-right terrorism plot."

Whites have been killing Whites for more than decades . Why isn’t that mentioned by you? Why are you not concerned about that?

For more than decades bad/racist cops have murdered unarmed/innocent Blacks, and rarely gets convicted/imprisoned. You seem to be ok with that.

Are you saying it is ok for rogue/racist cops to murder unarmed/innocent Blacks? When Blacks kill Blacks they are arrested, convicted sent to prison. That’s a fact. Can you prove this happens ‘everytime’ a rogue/racist police murders an unarmed Black child or adult?

It seems you’ve already criminalized the entire Black community with your posts, and trying to justify that it’s ok for bad/rogue/racist cops to murder Blacks.
Secondly, defunding the police dioes not mean getting rid of police. It comes off as too vague a phrase, but it simply implies taking some of that funding, to make improvements in policing, training, hiring, etc., and taking some responsibilities off of police officers, that can be handled by mental health or other agencies.

Fact check: False data on U.S. racial murder rates


”Users on social media are sharing an image that features misleading data on black and white murder rates. Based on existing U.S. government data, all the figures are false.

The image alleges, for example, that 81% of white murder victims are killed by Blacks. Data from the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice show on the contrary that more than 80% of white murder victims are killed by whites.“
