4 Year Old Foils Babysitter’s Robbery Plot - Video

Let’s just blame the black guy…

believe a little girl in 30 seconds but won’t believe the black man after 5 hours….lol ok.

Says a lot.

It really does. I think it’s wonderful that she told that truth however, this is a prime example of white privilege. At 4 years old, she actually had systematic power over the fate of a Black male. White privilege is a very real and impactful thing.

I know that this story is heartwarming in it’s own way. Yes, the 4 year old has more in the way of ethical fiber in her pinky than her babysitter has in her whole body. Yes, it’s case closed on a wrongfully accused case that could have had very serious consequences for the neighbor involved…

but there’s something really chilling about an otherwise law abiding citizen being arrested and questioned in handcuffs for 5 hours on the casual implication of a 17 year old. 

Shit like this angers me.

As a hard working cop I accept you are entitled to your opinion but I got to ask one thing. How does it feel when a cop targets a teenager because of their clothes or because they simply are a different? Shit I assume? So what the hell gives you the right to make a generalisation like that? You are no better than the shit cops you are complaining about. Like it or not the majority of us do the job because we want to help. I'm hope if you ever need us we don't judge you the way you judge us!

Wow am I really getting #NotAllCops from a fucking cop right now??

Okay, if you don’t think police are an oppressive force you are sorely mistaken. 

First of all, take a look at this infographic:

Law enforcement are in a position of power, obviously, but often from this position of power many of officers’ actions go unchecked, so you have shit like African Americans being killed by police officers every 28 hours the US for shit like “reaching for their waistband.” You get shit like police families being 2-4 times more likely than the general population to experience domestic violence. You get shit like this chief saying "If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names. I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested," and walking free after shooting and killing black 89-year-old man at a barbecue unprovoked. But go ahead and tell black parents trying to protect their children that they shouldn’t “make a generalization like that.”  

Despite all the shit that we consistently see the police  fucking  up  on, the average length of punishment for a crime by a police officer is a mere 14 months. You can pretend like this shit isn’t biased but you know it is.

The problem we see here with police is obviously the bad, ableistracist, violent, ableistracist, trigger-happy ones, but the reason this kind of stuff persists is the good cops who won’t speak up, because according to that infographic up there even 52% of you “good cops” will stay silent for your cop buddies. 

So no, #NotAllCops are like that, but #AllCopsCan do something about it. And I know that speaking up against this rigged system rooted in privilege sometimes means being fired, but to serve and protect citizens means protecting us from the bad cops, too. You say majority of cops do the job because you want to help? Then help us.  

One of my best friends is married to a cop, and I when I went to their 4th of July party he and a co-worker were there talking about an arrest they had recently made. They had arrested a man and a woman for possession of drugs and at one point the woman had tried to push one of them away. He freely admitted to all of us at the party that he then used an entire can of pepper spray on the one woman, and once she was on the ground he proceeded to hit her with his nightstick well beyond the point of incapacitation, until she was bruised and bloody, begging him to stop and that the he and his co-worker were laughing the entire time. They were laughing as they told the story and said it had been “awesome.”
