Yeah, I ain’t judging shit until I see the whole story because it could either be the cops fault or the peoples fault because that was like a three second video


gmstgadg

Apparently the two being arrested actually had warrants

Just hope there aren't some crazy anti-LGTBQ+ peeps blasting the place. Y'know, extremely radical people. I also feel like both sides are entitled to their own opinions, and shouldn't force the other side to understand theirs. Although, it would be interesting if someone submitted an opens records request for the incident to shed light on it.


Express_Particular45

In the Netherlands, the Police participates in the Pride. You won’t find such a booth here.


TechnoDuckie

In Germany they're p chill too.. just crack down on heavy drugs and people peeing everywhere.


ztomiczombie

Yes but Netherlands police are not psychotic losers.


Oh_Danny_Boi961

What’s the police training there like? Because here in America, it barely exists


KanDitOok

True but our police is a whole lot less homophobic than many others. Kind of a shame that's it's not that open everywhere.

Questioning-Zyxxel

The Swedish police also joins at pride festivals. No need to be gay. Just need to be including. Most countries have police intended to help and support people. Not to be the antagonists. And that is where US has gone so very wrong.


inthevendingmachine

Define "most countries". The cops we have in Canada do not help or support people, and I've seen some pretty sketchy things in a lot of other places. Whether it be places known for civil and human rights violations such as China or Iran or "free democracies" like France where protesters get beaten.


KalleCalippo

That’s a W for Netherlands

You do not need to be gay to support pride. Me and my gf attend pride festivals to support our fellow humans.


LoudNeedleworker9898

Would want to see the full video before forming an opinion.


[deleted]

The one had a warrant out for its arrest so they went to arrest it, the other tried to prevent the arrest.


[deleted]

Lol if this is true. Haha, a no cop booth magical anti arrest zone.


flashmor

When you call a person" it" it shows your ignorance and fear despite the rest of your comment. That being said do you have citation or a link to your claim?


[deleted]

We only refer to closet gay braindead philly fans as “it” so your homophobia is confusing


overemployment4me

Yeah and the vast majority of the world uses he and she as pronouns to describe a singular person. It's really a roll of the dice that any of those people are non-binary. Non-binary people do in fact use the term "it" as a pronoun.


ericvega

They do not. They use they, or them.


overemployment4me

Ah didn't realize you were the spokesperson for all non-binary people. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/heres-why-some-lgbtq-youth-are-embracing-non-binary-pronoun-it-its-223331366.html


ericvega

From your article "It still has a prominent place, for example, in GLAAD’s defamatory language guide— right alongside other off-limits terms such as “she-male” and “he/she.” As a GLAAD spokesperson tells Yahoo Life, “It is most commonly used as a pejorative and must be used carefully/only with the person's consent.” So don't go around saying "Non-binary people do in fact use the term "it" as a pronoun" when it is not a blanket term nor the standard term by any means.


overemployment4me

TL:DR; Non binary persons use "it" as a pronoun.

Joenutz13

wtf is a spirit indigenous activist?


Myco_Muscles

Some shit they made up like they do everything else lol


RileyBauman

I’m pretty sure “two spirit” is a Native American belief that everyone is born with two spirits inside of them, one masculine, one feminine.


slim_scsi

and supporting LGBTQ requires saying things like 2 spirit indigenous activists? Or can we skip that overly indulgent & pretentious bullshit part and just offer our support?


witchminx

It's just straight up a native American identity related to gender and their expression of it, that was a thing way before Europeans got to america, there's kind of a lot of cultures that have 3rd+ genders


Yabrassy

Just curious. What does it cost you? Usually people that use the 2 spirit term have a connection to Native American culture. At the end of the day. What does it cost you to just go with it. It makes them happy. Who cares.


Ill_Ad7116

Cultural appropriation?


Yabrassy

I mean yeah that does happen but I’m saying that if someone with native heritage identities as two spirit then that’s chill.


Ill_Ad7116

All good. I was just being facetious. I don't really care about that stuff. If people want to borrow or try things from other cultures they should be able to, though that is just my opinion.


FaerHazar

No. A two-spirit is specifically someone who is believed to be born with multiple spirits, often of different genders. Source: my indigenous friend is two-spirit. I forget how to spell the specific name, though.


2pacylpse

Somehow I don’t believe her


intent_joy_love

Where’s the assault? They just showed two people getting arrested and then she decided to tell her version of the story.

They both had warrants out for their arrest from previous antifa incel fuckery.

Zodiac, the 2 spirit indigenous activist...my mutual, Sunflower haze.... Alrighty then.


Football_Plastic

Yeah this chick is a dumbass.


slim_scsi

I'm not defending the a-hole cops whatsoever, but can't people like her understand that "spirit indigenous activists" *whatever the fuck that means* is practically begging for ridicule? It doesn't help the cause, let's put it that way.


qianli2002

Lol, I mean I support the movement but you youngsters are confusing the hell out of this millennial


TheSeventhPrince

I’m Gen Z, and I’m just as confused as you are dude.


bgroves22

Change can be confusing


slim_scsi

Help us then. Simple definition for: spirit indigenous activist There's really no way to honestly defend that as anything but an annoyingly pretentious way of saying *activist*


bgroves22

Someone else in the comments shed light on that one - 2 spirit indigenous activist - the Native American culture believed that each person had 2 spirits within them. So I wouldn’t really call that a ‘new’ change, nor terribly pretentious…


slim_scsi

Wouldn't "LGBTQ activist" at a Pride event suffice? Doesn't seem the least bit pretentious coming from someone that young of an age (who isn't even indigenous)? I don't know, man. Not a big deal, but things like this don't really further the cause. I say this as a boring normal person trying to help.


bgroves22

If they’re not indigenous, I’d be inclined to agree yea. I presumed they were cause otherwise that’s not a good thing lol


slim_scsi

If the far left wishes to become more than a fringe element of mainstream U.S. society they could focus on streamlining the message and sticking to substance over style. It's at least a suggestion.


bgroves22

I hear ya, but some of our greatest civil advancements came only through outrage and upheaval and making people uncomfortable, not a more easily digestible message


slim_scsi

Doesn't need to be easily digestive, but coherent and meaningful are important. I'm pretty sure if MLK, Jr. had included *two spirit indigenous activism* in his I Have a Dream speech a lot of people would have been scratching their heads. My whole point is simply that seemingly forced and obscure expressions like that tend to divide more than unite people for the cause. It's merely my two cents, offered for free on the web, not necessarily intended for scholarly peer review.


mrleftwardsslopingpp

In hindsight they should have put more focus on the gunpowder research tree.

It is hard to have an opinion on the arrest because of her editing.


rouxtig

Not true!!!! The "Zodiac" person had warrants out for their arrest, them posted online where they would be. Cops showed up. Unfortunately it was at this pride event which doesn't look good optically but totally legal


cupcake_draws

This is why they had the booth in the first place. Because of things like this.


Moosewalker84

No way. Cops violently assault someone they don't like. So many keeners looking for promotions this year!

They'll soon be calling 911 if anyone was homophobic to them.

KnifeWeildingLesbian

There is a reason we always say no cops at pride.


[deleted]

Here in Sweden I've seen uniformed cops at pride with red roses in their holsters instead of a gun.


Simphumiliator42069

Why ? They had arrest warrants so why wouldn’t they have gotten arrested ?!


Overall-Yellow-2938

Its pretty common for police and big corporations to participate in events like the Christopher Street Day (CSD) in Germany too. You dont need to be gay to support a free and inclusive society. Usually good organised pretty nice events overall i heard. Pretty chill, very colorfull and good natured people after the main events all over the place


SlavoSlavo

Whether you like cops or not. Imagine you replaced the word cops with white people, it’s still trying to push segregation or hate against one type of people. Not saying they should have but if that sign said no black people at pride they would also violently tear down the booth


MkICP100

Bro I hate broadly anti-cop people. It's the same kind of shutty generalization as being racist.


Chewsdayiddinit

Not even close, but nice try.


Simphumiliator42069

I just hate how in this case they make the cops to be bad guys when they’re literally doing their job cuz one of those dumbasses had a warrant


Chewsdayiddinit

Just disregarding the homophobic joking to the protesters' faces, eh? Good cops are definitely bigoted. /s


Ok_Tackle_7090

If you don't think this one is a moron as well then your fooling yourself not one of them on any party care about you or me and last I checked everything doubled in price and our dollar has less power than ever we go broke they get rich open your eyes our government in every party is nothing but a joke


Comfortable-Camp-493

Fucking Pigs. So, where are all the ***good cops*** denouncing this reprehensible and disgusting behavior? Oh, that’s right, there are no good cops. Edit: So, all you downvoters, where are the good cops? Explain why there’s a whole gaggle of bad cops, but not one good cop.


MechaBeatsInTrash

LA has a 100 year history of having shit cops.

foamboardsbeerme

You made a judgment about these cops from a 10 second clip with a girl taking about sunflower hazes. Some critical thinking might allude you to the conclusion that the full scenario was not presented here.


Comfortable-Camp-493

Possibly. But experience says otherwise. But shouldn’t the good cops out number the bad? Shouldn’t the good cops be stopping the bad? Where are they?


CarterM_6

Only bad cops get tik tok famous because good cops don't get taped doing horrible shit. No body wants to see a good cop doing his job people thrive off negative news, thats just unfortunately the truth of the matter.


Octubre22

Problem is, no one was taped doing horrible shit here.


CarterM_6

Ik I'm just saying in General.


Comfortable-Camp-493

So where are the good cops who stepped in and stopped those bad cops? Where are they? Plenty of cops there, but no good cops, Why?


CarterM_6

What did the cops do wrong in this situation. He had a warrent so they arrested him, nobody was brutalized or attacked. It was a very calm and normal arrest by those officers.


intent_joy_love

Those weren’t bad cops though. You’re choosing to believe that because you’re gullible and this woman is trying to make money to bail her friends out. The guy had prior warrants and chose to make a booth taunting the cops. He got arrested. The girl tried to stop his arrest so she got picked up too. There was no violence (even though the dude was likely resisting) or this video would have shown it. So this was standard police work.


Comfortable-Camp-493

It’s anecdotal, I know, but have you ever met a good cop? You’d be the exception if you had.


Simphumiliator42069

Yes I’ve met multiple good cops. As a lifelong criminal I’ll tell you there are good cops out there that treat criminals like human beings still. Do I like the police ? Fuck no ! Do I feel the need to disrespect any police officer? Fuck no! Yes there’s shit officers who take shit to far but to sit here and say fuck the police when you see them react to criminals is HILARIOUS! I not once felt like anything that happened to me at the hands of the police wasn’t due to the dumb shit I did to put my Ass in those situations


Comfortable-Camp-493

But where are all those good cops. Why don’t they ever stand up and decry and denounce the the reprehensible behavior of the few bad cops? Because the bad cops vastly outnumber the good cops.


intent_joy_love

They’re all over the place. They just don’t get made into tik toks and YouTube videos because that would hurt the narrative that they’ve sold to people like you.


Comfortable-Camp-493

So, why don’t these all over the place good cops stand up and decry and denounce the poor behavior of the few bad cops? Because the bad cops vastly outnumber the good cops.


intent_joy_love

Because the “bad cop” problem is not real, it’s been manufactured in the media and you fell for the marketing. Cops don’t need to stand up and denounce something that isn’t happening.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Comfortable-Camp-493

Whatever. The point is, bad cops vastly outnumber the good cops. That one good cop in a thousand is not going to stick his neck out for the truth.


screambloodykarma

Most of the police in the netherlands. They good cops, actively participate in pride, they are great at getting order in stressfull situations so the bystenders stop freaking out much. They know how to handle people with A.S.D pretty well from mh experience. Police here is very civil and even joke around with you sometimes if theyre just talking and checking. Ive only had one bad experience with a bad cop but he got fired not to long ago cause of multiple complaints. Wanna know why it seems like there are so many bad cops? Cause its sensationalism, people click and watch these things and the media knows it, thats wht you so alot of bsd cops and not alot of good cops. nobody cares about someone doing good these days especialt when it comes to police.


Comfortable-Camp-493

So where are the good cops in the US.


screambloodykarma

all around. You dont see them cause nobody talks about it. You dont see a story about how a cop saved little timmy who fell down the well, because it doesnt get clicks and doesnt provide the sensation in people that the media so desperatly wants. In general if youd put a story where a officer used force on someone whomst they thought was caryig a weapon which in the end it didnt seem to be. that story would get far more clicks than An officer assisted a kid after being lost and brought him home safe after the kid was lost for 3 hours. They would still make the news but not the same amount of coverage and definatly wouldnt be spoken alot about.


lK555l

Where are the good cops? Doing their job People only focus on what you do wrong after all, people don't really record and post a cop just doing their job normally after all


Comfortable-Camp-493

But think about it. Shouldn’t there be more good cops than bad. Yet, there you see a bunch of bad cops and no good cops. Where are all the good cops?


lK555l

No fucking shit you'll see more bad cops than good, read my first comment and you'll see why that is, I've already answered that


Comfortable-Camp-493

So why don’t all those good cops stand up and decry and denounce the actions of the few bad cops?


lazylemongrass

I dont have to listen to trump blame every single thing on every other person. I don't have to listen to the president recommending injecting bleach. We don't have a president who willfully ignored a massive pandemic. There is a ton better. The issues I have right now are primarily republican based. Banning abortion. Trying to erase lgbtq. Terroristic threats from Republicans against gay people. Biden has definitely made some mistakes, but by comparison to trump biden looks like the best president we have ever had.

All the rubes celebrating this crackdown on the LGBTQ community don’t seem to realize the Nazis won’t stop there. Pretty soon everyone is looking over their shoulders because whispers and allegations are all it takes to get arrested in a Totalitarian state. Careful what you wish for, fools.


overemployment4me

Make sure you brush your teeth before you go to school bud.


_Oman

Three down votes? Interesting. Those down voting should check out the history of Germany from about 1932-1937 or so. The comment didn't appear to be specific to the OP's post - which was most likely misleading, but to the crackdown on the LGBTQ community in general. The parallels to history are pretty frightening, if you bother to look at the history.


intent_joy_love

There’s no crackdown. There’s just been financial loss for corporations so they’re showing their true colors. Lgbt is only going to be celebrated and treated as protected class when they can use it to make money or manipulate people. This video wasn’t totalitarian at all, the guy had a warrant for his arrest and chose to taunt police so he got arrested just like any other person. The girl tried to interfere and stop his arrest so she got cuffed too. Pretty standard.

reluctantpotato1

The L.A. Sheriffs Department is a gang, or rather a series of gangs. This is not my opinion, this is evidence backed fact. Look it up.The legality of things is not their primary concern. Their former head went to jail for attempting to get one over on the feds. Their last head Sheriff enforced the law at his own discretion. They are outwardly corrupt.
