The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America. 

via Vice:

What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:

1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.

2. You are getting arrested. 

3. You are getting beaten by the police.

In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.

In which the NYPD’s attempt at “public relations” backfires tremendously.

A point that needs repeating.

I think it’s still important to give those ideas respect because they mean a lot to people. I do agree that everything should be open for discussion though, political correctness doesn’t get anything done.

IM JEALOUS OF COUNTRIES THAT TEACH LANGUAGES TO CHILDREN FROM A YOUNG AGE SO BY THE TIME THEYRE LIKE 18 THEYRE BILINGUAL . IN MY ELEVEN YEARS OF AMERICAN PUBLIC SCHOOLING I CAN NAME YOU LIKE 5 COLORS IN SPANISH

i’m a 14 years old…

Honestly a big part of that is how much more useful English is than Spanish. I will never use Spanish but every country ive been to has been English accessible. A lot of people take that as a sort of murica english is the best thing but its honestly true. Other countries learn english because its useful

"I’m a pathologist, which means that I run the lab, and I’m continually shocked by all the unnecessary lab work that comes my way. Doctors have to find something wrong with you, because preventative measures aren’t sexy. They know that you’re more likely to appreciate them if they tell you something’s wrong, than if they tell you to stop drinking 40 oz sodas."

Literally half my life. But really it’s more like preventive measures aren’t profitable.

SKINNY SHAMING WILL NOT STOP FAT SHAMING.

MISANDRY WILL NOT STOP MISOGYNY.

HETEROPHOBIA WILL NOT STOP HOMOPHOBIA.

HATE DOES NOT END HATE.

None of those exist because they’re not systemic /s
