i dont like when people say "police being bad is a US issue"
police is bad everywhere. there are no good cops
its also almost always followed by "omg look at this wholesome 100 police officer in finland joining a street band after receiving a noise complaint" "omg look at this wholesome 100 police officer in norway helping a grandma cross the street"
they're still very much cops
okay i just saw the post that people were referencing earlier today
holy shit okay
i will clarify: there are no good cops. acab means acab. not even your friendly uncle. not even the cops trying to change the system from inside. not a single cop is a good cop as long as they remain being a cop. not one. not in any country.
nobody is born a cop. every cop voluntarily became a cop. don't even try the "oh but what if nobody else wants to hire them" excuse, there's like 100 other jobs that are available if you can be hired as a cop. not a single cop is a good cop, no, not even in norway or germany or whichever country you idolize
Westeners too easily fall into the trap of having an anime-like depiction of the country, when they would never think a sitcom in their own country is an accurate depiction of daily life there.
