And some people have the utter gall to wonder why folks are protesting across the entire USA, why there have even been riots.

Remember that the sayjng is "one bad apple spoils the bunch." It's not "it's just a few bad apples, so it's ok."

57 Buffalo officers resign from special squad after two others are suspended for allegedly shoving 75-year-old protester to the ground:

@IronMan Also worth noting, the cops didn't quit their jobs as cops, they only decided they didn't wanna be on the ERT any more. It took zero spine for them to do that.

@Clout9 @IronMan More time for them to eat donuts while violence at Buffalo protests goes down 99%.

@Clout9 According to the article, they didn't resign because of what those two officers did, they resigned because they were both put on suspension. In other words- they feel that this was an appropriate response. Fuck them all. @IronMan

@Clout9 I just learned that before the police knew that video existed, they released a statement saying that he "tripped and fell." Wow. Makes you wonder, just how many police reports/statements are even factual. @IronMan
