    In light of all the targeting of black people by the Chicago PD I wonder how well Mike and Molly would be received today.

    one of the issues that did crop up was that the county police force became less diverse

    no solution is perfect, but its a blueprint

    Chicago PD is actually one of the best cop shows for representation. Hell the season finale just had their unit's only AA officer threatened by the undercover unit for tarnishing the memory of their dead friend with the racial profiling he was actually guilty of that lead directly to his shooting. It's never shied away from the tenuous relationship between law enforcement and AA communities.

    I don't watch Blue Bloods, but from what I've read, some of the cops on that show can be worse than Hank Voight. If that's the case, if Chicago PD has to make some changes, then Blue Bloods definitely will as well.

    I know there have been more incidents like those beforehand, but if the George Floyd shooting hadn't happened, do you really think Cops and Live PD would have gotten canceled? Or people protesting against cop shows including a kid's cartoon?

    Okay.

    1. George Floyd wasn't shot. Pay attention.

    2. However, George Floyd was murdered. So guess what? We don't get to "what if" this. Because it happened. He is dead. So here we are. Actions have consequences.

    3. Maaaaaaaybe try and take your concern for some garbage ass shit television shows and redirect it to the police that are STILL killing people in the streets. Go check out Atlanta. Still doing it. Fingers in their ears lalalalalala.

    This isn't a case of a few more incidents. This happens everyday all across the country and has been since forever. The fact that people think this is some isolated incident is ridiculous.

    YES it would have happened because the fact that people don't want to admit ,own up to or even know about is that people of color are murdered every day by law enforcement. Including children.

    Had these issues been properly addressed and dealt with at any point prior to now we wouldn't be having this conversation and a lot of innocent people would still be alive.

    People's attention spans are very short. We were talking about all of this back in 2015 when it looked like the media was FINALLY paying attention and putting a spotlight on these issues. But as soon as another story comes along it's dropped like a hot potatoe for the next thing.

    People can't rely on the media for anything let alone for shining a light on racial injustice. Just like in 2015 they will move on as soon as the next thing comes along, most likely come election time.

    It's up to individual people to keep this dialogue going and not let each other become complacent. Just because the media has moved on doesn't mean that we should.

    When a police chief had to step aside less than a month later after the police shoot someone dead?

    Puppy first responders. Only one of them is a police dog and all he has are traffic cones to direct traffic.

    A lot of people who call for disbanding the police propose replacing them with something that looks suspiciously like the Paw Patrol

    While a few people are sounding off about Paw Patrol on the internet, the very large majority of protesters are concerned with the actions of the real police and don't give a fig about the cartoon.

    So saying "The Protesters" are going after Paw Patrol is a a giant exaggeration, if not a substantial false.

    Never heard of Paw Patrol until this thread. The fact that it is being brought into the conversation is an attempt to delegitimize the protests and the complaints of the protestors, specifically African Americans.

    I mean, the below quote is just such an incredibly stupid statement. But this is where we are.

    I think that the point was not to compare the protestors to the cartoon dogs, but to compare what some people want to replace the police with to the cartoon dogs...or not...

    unrelated but I recently started reading Season Finale - The Unexpected Rise and Fall of WB and UPN

    written by former WB president Susanne Daniels and Variety reporter Cynthia Littleton

    really great stuff about how both networks were developed

    People want to replace the police with a number of different positions that respond to needs without resorting to violence and aggression. Which is what the Paw Patrol does in their cartoon. Admittedly there isn't a "social worker" dog specifically but the point holds.

    As for the media, I forget if we're currently pretending that the media we consume, especially as youngsters, has zero effect on our development and our attitudes or not, but media portrayals of police and police violence is a legitimate concern. If there were a children's cartoon currently airing that portrays the police as unambiguously right in all cases, even when needlessly escalating the situation, that would be a legitimate point of concern and not something to "delegitimize the protestors"

    ALright, well, I guess I misunderstood the intent of your comment. My apologies.

    Again, I've never seen this cartoon. Because it's for children, and I don't have any.
