22: Not Again! $%&#@!!!

Many knew that I do not trust the cops. I avoid them as much as I can. Why? Because many, many, many, many cops trampled on Deaf individuals’ dignity from A to Z. Of course, mainly with the communication barrier that led them to trample, dismiss, disregard, subjugate and disparage Deaf people’s dignity.
Of course, not all cops are bad. But let’s be serious — the truth is that the bad experiences outnumbers the good ones when it comes to us with the cops. How to find a solution for ’em to deal with us? Workshop? Presentation? No. No! We already did. It does not work like that. Provide a workshop once a year or 5 years will not penetrate these cops’ minds. Most of ’em are high school graduates — not college-educated, which means one thing — they’re stupid in some certain areas! I repeatedly urged that the police departments to hire deaf people to work in the departments. Not as a cop but as a forensic scientist, technician, assistant or something like that. This way, they can interact with Deaf people on a daily basis to a point where they will learn to respect!
Last Saturday morning in Philadelphia, a cop was shot. I do not approve the killing of cop. At all.
Last night, the cops chased after 3 individuals and more than 15 cops were out for blood and they attacked these 3 individuals savagely. You can see this video for yourself. It was too much.
I am irked at Phildalelphia cops for swarming over 3 individuals — I counted 19. Some said 14. It was obvious that 3 did resist a little but mostly, they surrendered. But that does not stop these cops from beating, stomping and kicking 3 so badly that they were hospitalized. You can see 2 guys being severely injured– including one of their leg.
I know they’re pissed off about these thugs who might killed one of their own — but c’mon, they were paid not to do that but to uphold the laws. The cops should be prosecuted for beating, stomping and kicking these 3 who were accused of murdering a cop.
Good job, Philly cops — all the more reasons to stay away from cops. At all costs. Just visit YouTube.com and type “police brutality” — self-explanatory.
