    Why doesnt someone show up with a machine gun and open fire on the fat fucking cock sucking Cops?

    I have no respect whatsoever for the police forces, especially in NYC. They are bullies, hiding beneath the shield of the city. They no longer protect the citizens as they are only there to protect the crimminals. Heck, most of them are just fat a$$ who can’t even run or bend over, bellies hanging down from too much drinking the Koolaid, egos as big as the ocean. Would you really think one of these could protect you from a crimminal? Disgusting…..totally disgusting!
