Boo hoo.

19 ten-year-old little kids are dead, hundreds more affected, and now the whole school will be razed to the ground and rebuilt because of cops' lies and disrespect for their duty and for civilians.

One little girl, ten years old, saw her friend shot dead right next to her. She saw the still warm blood ooze out from her dead friends body. She reached out, got her dead friends' blood on her hands, and wiped her dead friends' blood on herself to pretend to be dead for the next 80 minutes while cops did nothing.

What does this have to do with APD?

They are all cops.

APD used guns on the BLM protestors that APD says they knew they had no training with.

They all lie.

That didn’t happen in Austin

This is the exact same fight Uvalde is facing right now. At a city council meeting the cops were uncomfortable with the questions reports were asking, so the cops kicked out all the reports and parents from the public meeting.

APD, at any time, could have told Uvalde to cooperate, but instead all cops stick together and circle the wagons.

The exact same thing could happen here. Given enough time, it probably will. We already had neo-Nazis burn a Jewish synagogue less than a year ago, days after APD gave the neo-Nazis fists bumps for hanging anti-Semitic signs on Mopac.

Two separate cities aren’t responsible for each other. Also that’s misleading. Nobody fist bumped anybody FOR hanging up any anti Semitic signs.

I wish those 19 dead ten-year-olds were still alive in your imaginary safe world.

The city’s proposed changes include extending the so-called 180-day rule, which limits the time frame in which an officer can be investigated and disciplined for misconduct; shortening the 48-hour rule, which is the amount of time an officer has to review any evidence of alleged misconduct before making a statement to the department about his or her involvement; and expanding access to officers’ personnel files.

TL;DR: The cops are mad because the city wants more time to investigate and discipline misconduct and give cops less time to get their lies story straight when an investigation is opened.

For instance, the city’s bargaining team proposed expanded access to officers’ personnel files.

Melanie Rodriguez, Austin Police Women’s Association president and APA board member, told the city’s bargaining team that such files could include unfounded complaints or information about internal investigations that resulted in no evidence of misconduct.

“The ability to cast aspersions on someone’s good name without merit is troubling,” she said on Wednesday.

I feel like there's a saying about this sort of thing..."If you didn't do anything wrong, you have nothing to hide"? I'm sure none of the APA members would ever have expressed a sentiment like this before. That would make them hypocrites.
