Liberty Belle - Sings the song of the unchained

@Color Anon
Because. You can just say "I think this show isn't good" and move on. You get inundated with vitriol from them.

I even seen some tip-toe around their dislike of the show, just to not get flak — which usually doesn't work since you're only allowed to love it. Again, all over a cartoon show.

A victimless crime is something like prostitution, drug possession (there can still be public intoxication laws since that poses a risk to the safety of others), kids playing outside, kids being outside unsupervised, kids running a lemonade stand without a permit, pedestrians using the street as they had for thousands of years until the American auto industry bought enough politicians to rewrite the laws to prohibit them from using the street like they do in almost every other country on the planet, homeless people sleeping on park benches, file sharing, remixing music, using language politicians don't like, ordinary people trying to buy stocks like the game stonks incident, carrying a firearm, carrying a knife, possessing "scary" "contraband" weapons that idiots know nothing about but want to control anyway.

As for specific punishments of specific crimes like theft of things that actually exist (as opposed to duplicating information), I'm sure we could get away with an afternoon in the pillory or a public caning. If it's something serious like breaking and entering a person's home we could escalate to amputating limbs as punishment.

Pray tell what exactly are considered "victimless crimes" in this scenario? How about someone robbing a store, like in that video of a black guy walking into a Wallgreens with a bag and just taking stuff right off the shelves in broad daylight.

Would this "public security bureau" get involved with incidents like that and arrest the robber even though he wasn't using any physical force in his brazen robbery? Or would they simply allow that to occur because no physical force or threat of force was being used, and no one was being put at risk of harm so long as he was allowed to rob at his leisure?

Because the only job of the public security bureau would be to protect the public from criminals, not to harass people committing victimless "crimes" or to fill for-profit prisons with slave labor. Anyone who doesn't risk their life to defend the public would be arrested for dereliction of duty.

What exactly would keep this "public security bureau" from doing the exact same thing that make the police look bad? How would it even be implemented? Would they actually enforce the laws or would they say "fuck the laws" and simply do whatever they wanted based on the notion of social justice? would they end up being just as racist, or would they operate on the notion that minorities should be excused from the consequences of their actions because of "systemic racism keeping them down"?

Let's try again. Given that we're talking about how police forces SHOULD work, should cops have a duty to protect or not? And why?


First, are we talking a general duty to protect the public at large, or a more specific duty to provide protection to any specific private citizen who requests such? Details like that need to be hammered out first in order to give an accurate answer.

@Humble Oriathan
I honestly think the whole thing was deliberately orchestrated in order to generate public support for new gun control laws that would otherwise be opposed by intense public pressure. The fact the shooting was carried out just days before a planned NRA convention is highly suspicious. The fact the school is going to be demolished is even more suspicious. It's Sandy Hook all over again.

There's about 400 violent crimes per year per 100,000 people in the US. Even if each was committed by a different person that's only 1.3 million criminals. That's rough parity between the number of cops and the number of criminals.

These people are the scum of the earth. They're the biggest criminal gang on the planet given a license to kill to keep homeless people from sleeping on park benches and work a day people from smoking a joint. We need to abolish the police and replace them with a public security bureau.

My opinion on the Ulvalde school shooting changed btw. With all the new evidence of the incident that's been coming out after it was willfully kept from the public for weeks, something about the whole thing doesn't seem right now. What stuck out most was the fact that they got into the school, but waited a whole hour before doing anything. One of the cops idling had a daughter who was in the school on that day, and he just stands by so calmly. Any other man holding an assault rifle would've took an immediate initiative to save their kid.

I posted something in Derpi's politics thread, now I'll just wait and see if I get banned or not.
Also I see other people can post memes there.

@Seiken
That's really the biggest problem I saw, There interesting moments like with Hordak if it was if Hordak didn't become a bitch, allowed Catra to boss him around, get brain-raped only to just remember and be "Redeemed" mostly for that shipping itself.

I imagine the ideas came from Chuck Austin — while the execution was handled by the rest and that's what shows. They cared more for this "LOLZ SO RANDOM" and shippings. There were no stakes to anything since they didn't act like it was unless the plot deemed it to very bland payout.

Like what if Madam Raz was stuck between timelines due to a spell backfiring to see the future? NOPE! She's just a nutty bitch! LOL!

What if Sea Hawk knew they were resistance members and allowed them to win arm-wrestling to get the war started? NOPE! He's just a sissy and everyone has more nodical knowledge then him. LOL!

What if Kyle was an agent for the resistance and gave him information? NOPE! He's just a useless bitch that everyone picks on! LOL!

What if Scorpia wanted to secretly get rid of Catra and did so by getting real close and even trying to crush her? NOPE! She just wanted to molest her. LOL!

What if the Horde was a threat?

@Dex Stewart
Was better then most of that Nick Jr. stuff.


@Color Anon
That's still kind of the problem. You can't dislike it to them. If there wasn't such push-back to criticism of it… Well, it would probably not really be talked about.

I always tell people to go look at the initial Bible of the show. All the stove they tout the show for, where nowhere in it. Showing it was a massive Bait n' Switch to make it shera in name only.

>But then who would ever sign up to be a cop?
People who intend to actually protect and serve.
>Because it's quite literally not in their job description
Remeber how I asked previously, not that long ago, if you were debating what cops are or what they should be? Because of course I agree that they don't have any legal duty to protect and serve, that's the statement I made that started this entire argument. How can you keep arguing past me?
Let's try again. Given that we're talking about how police forces SHOULD work, should cops have a duty to protect or not? And why?
>Security begins at home and with the individual. But government etc
Yes. Yes. Yes. Obviously. Shit is fucked. It shouldn't be that way. I don't know how you got the impression I disagreed on this.

I personally found the show to be ok, it had a lot of cringe it, but some good characters too. The Catra x Adora shipping was so on the nose and both of them were quite annoying to watch. Most enjoyment i pulled out of Entrapta and Hordak.

Story overall had some interesting points, i mostly like the twist that Hordak himself is just a tiny cog in a galactic war.

Like with almost any other show i don't interact with the fandom, Horse is already 24/7 job. So i don't know much about drama that goes anywhere else and i am quite happy with that.

I don't think i would watch it again, but it was worth one.

They don't want to neuter the SCOTUS, they want to pack it with ultra-liberal judges to drown out the conservative votes, essentially once again changing the rules to suit them because they don't like having to play by the rules along with everyone else.

Having those cops held responsible to a duty to protect would have helped.


But then who would ever sign up to be a cop?

And now that I have answered your question, stop evading mine.
Why shouldn't cops — to the best of their ability — act as general security in society?


Because it's quite literally not in their job description? They exist to enforce the laws, not to protect the public. They serve a government interest, not a private interest.

If they shouldn't, where should security come from? Keep in mind the cops were keeping people from protecting their own children at Uvalde.


Security begins at home and with the individual. But government has seen fit to prevent that from being the norm because the criminals need greater legal protections.

They celebrated it when it worked for them. They are only pissed now that it does not. Ginsburg as an activist before anything else as was made to suffer for them.
