[News] The USA Police State will never satisfy its lust for beating, gassing, and imprisoning minorities

It's it "coloured"? At least that should be the literal meaning.
Yes, but (as I understand it) when used by itself, it is more equivalent to the English word "ruddy," like when saying "His face had a healthy color to it" we all know the color being referenced is pink/red, and not green or blue or some other color.

I looked it up, and colored would be coloreado (google translate had a fixation of translating colored to the spanish equivalent of colored people, so it took a while).

So yeah, it looks like it's a colloquialism for reddish when it comes to faces. TIL.
 
Coloreado means colored but colorado means reddish or just red. Like "chapulin colorado". Over here we call colorados to redheads. Also there is a local tribu called colorados that tint their hair red with achiote seeds.
 
So the UPS hostage shootout.

What the fuck? WHAT THE FUCK?

You're hiding behind cars with bystanders in them firing on a truck with hostages inside? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

You know, I saw that on the news last night and thought I imagined it. "There's no way they would...", and yet, here we are.
 
Why was he filming already before it happened? Is that scenario so common that as soon as cops on bikes show up, you whip out your phone?

On the other hand, the way police in the states (and slowly as well in Germany) develop a us vs them mentality, its is probably safer to take a video as soon as
you see more than one of them.
 
Yeah, what do they think they’re doing, standing in the way of profitsgress like that?

Texas Police Officer Fired For Giving A Sandwich Full Of Feces To A Homeless Man Wins His Job Back

He won the appeal because "administration issues" and a "lack of attention to the case" meant it took longer than 180 to issue the suspension, which made it invalid.

"it's reported that he has a second indefinite suspension awaiting appeal from June 2016. Reports claim he and another male officer are accused of intentionally defecating in the women's bike patrol office restroom, smearing brown contents over the toilet seat and leaving defecation in the stall. "

He describes all this shit as "pranks and juvenile jokes", and that he was just trying to get a reaction.
 
That's not uncommon among folk who become cops. That toxic (WEEOO WEEOO) fratboy bullshit behavior. One day I'll open up about it more.

I guess I have no idea how this happens. It's extremely clear that this was straight up murder.
 
Okay, you're right. The guy didn't die. (I thought he was killed.)

So clearly assault with a deadly weapon?
Yep. From the victim it sounded more like lousy trigger discipline. Which can get you fired on a firing range.

Thankfully this didn't result in police brutality:
Indiana Professor Calls Cops On Black Student For Not Wanting To Change Seats

"About 30 minutes into Borna’s lecture, another student who had been sitting in the first row had to excuse herself from class. Five minutes after she vacated her seat, Borna told Benson to gather his belongings and take the unoccupied chair. "

A half-hour into the class and the professor asks a student to get up and move seats. That's not a reason to call the cops!
