    After a DC brawl involving proud boys and subjects marching with a blm protest, two members of the proud boys were stabbed.

    This lead to accusations that police are overly friendly with the group.

    What is the basis for this accusation? That police have done the following: drove members of the proud boys around after the stabbing into attempts to locate the suspects, that a police officer in Portland was seen shaking the hand of a proud boy, that police gave the group an escort through the area of a protest. I will show that these actions are not out of traditional police actions.

    The first one-it is not uncommon at all to drive witnesses or victims around to attempt to locate and identify suspects. While it is better for the case to locate the suspect snd transport them to the area of the witness, however, it situations where there may be many suspects or there is a large amount of ground to cover or unsafe conditions in which the victim would be placed in (say, the area of the crime is unsafe) it is not uncommon to take the witness with police as they canvas the area. Debunked.

    Second, police seen shaking hands of a proud boy. So what? A police officer getting screamed at by one side and often dodging things thrown at them, someone coming up and supporting the officer is a welcome interaction. I have seen police shaking hands with blm as well. I have had hundreds of people thank me for my service with a handshake over the years, and in fact, had a guy installing appliances in my new house thank me for being a cop upon learning of my precious career. So shaking hands of a supporter is not uncommon. Debunked.

    Third, the escort out of protest area. Duh. Getting subjects likely to be involved in fights is not uncommon. Police have escorted kkk and other hated groups out of an area or provided protection for such groups. I have personally escorted snd provided security for the westboro Baptist church when they came to town because of how much they are hated even though I despise them. Debunked.

    I appreciate that someone is willing to step up and face off with anqueefa since they are basically a violent and destructive terrorist group. I think they are douchey as hell and I am not a supporter per se, but the enemy of my enemy, while not my friend, are at least not my enemy.

    how do? Unless you buy into them being a terrorist or criminal organization. On the other side, people want to see police form relationships with gangs to head off violence , why not the pb?

    How many officers across America are part of the Proud Boys vs how many are part of BLM.

    As a percentage, I think we all know the answer to this.

    I think as children almost all of us saw police officers as heroes. It was mainly a product of how they were portrayed on television.

    But when you become a young adult you actually see the guys from your graduating class who become cops: Usually either the drunken jocks who used to commit borderline sexual assault at house parties or the short guys who were assholes and always had a chip on their shoulder.

    So the police can dance and kneel with BLM protesters but they cannot shake the hands of the proud boys?

    Maybe because one side wants the police dead, and the other support the police.
    Black supremacists need to grow their missing brain.

    Police need to be impartial. It’s not a popularity contest.

    Well...one side respects the police...

    And the other wants to defund/abolish, openly hostile to law enforcement and some are even cool with murdering police.

    So the cops will only do their duty if someone respects them? What page of the manual is that?

    The police should always be looking for inroads with violent gangs, but they shouldn't be embracing them.

    If anything, the police are far too friendly with the BLM/Antifa/leftist scumbags.
