Without a doubt the trump coup led to those suicides.

If cops policed themselves they wouldn't have half the public image problems they do. Instead they prefer a culture of racism and brutality. They made their bed, now they can lie in it.

... Veteran Chicago Sgt. slams the left for 'politicizing' suicides and says cops EVERYWHERE are at 'mental boiling point' after being 'vilified' for a year ...

False equivalence.

Comparing police "vilified" because of their behavior towards protesters ("cops EVERYWHERE") with police acting to defend the Constitution against insurrectionists is worse than an apple and oranges comparison.

If the cops EVERYWHERE want to stop being vilified, they should start acting better. For starters, look at the "Protect and Serve" motto on the side of your police car. Note that it does not say, "occupy and kill."

But false equivalance seems to be all Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith (spokesperson for the National Police Association) seems to have in the attempt to "slam the left" for the left's attempt to correct bad police behavior.

Talk about trying to politicize something. She tried. And failed.

You're claiming it's being politicized by liberals as gaslighting at its most obvious.

Another garbage article from Boaz. The idea that we have no way of knowing why the Capitol officers killed themselves without a note is laughable when the people who know them best are telling us why. No surprise though since Boaz post history has established he supports the insurrectionists and is willing to support any lie that supports his view.

Nobody should be surprised the union is on the defensive.

The cop's families are the only folks I care about being spared any politicization.

Trump
GOP
Insurrectionists
Police department
etc...

They politicize all to their benefit when it suits their needs....they can just bend over.

@#8 ... If blacks EVERYWHERE want to stop being vilified, they should start acting better. ...

Another false equivalency. One which does not even come close to countering my comment.

You really need to try harder.

But don't you hate liberals and all they do?

Your hypocrisy (and racism) knows no bounds.

Not content with publishing this -------- garbage on the nooner, you've decided to make it a thread?

Capitol Police:
140 injured and maimed directly from January 6th.
5 deaths, 4 suicides, all tied to January 6th,
10 still unable to work due to physical injuries from January 6th.

Yet we get a post citing some comment by a "Veteran Chicago Sgt" that's used to rationalize away January 6th - to try and make it equivalent to what police are going though elsewhere.
Why? To devalue what the Capitol Police went through.
Why? So right-wing pieces of ---- can be "OK" with what happened. So they can rationalize away January 6th.
Why? Politics.

Priceless moment from the title?
Screaming about politicizing all the while politicizing.

The GQP is defending an insurrection, that is the actual politicizing. Pointing out the mounting death toll of the GQP insurrection is just reporting capital crime stats. No party would politicize crime now would they.

Not sure if this is a threat or not, but it is an obvious attempt to politicize the suicides.

Everything is political. So whenever someone ask to "not politicize xyz" it is because to do so makes their side look bad and they know it.

You really have to stand in awe of the beautiful simplicity Boaz uses to view the world.
Why did the cops kill themselves? Liberals
Why did Trump's presidency fail? Liberals
Mass shooting, melted ice cream, cant find your ------- car keys? Liberals liberals liberals

But hey, if some guys off themselves after seeing their buddies bludgeoned to death by BLM cosplaying as redneck Trump supporters...let's not, ya know, make any political hay out of it.

Don't you mean they should start acting more like white conservatives?
