      I need to see Hasan do a show in a suit at least once.....

    2. shayon mojumdar

      Well Hassan is pretty much screwed now 🤣

    3. Christian NoName

      This is literally just a higher budget version of Some More News’ video “How Cops Are Trained to Shoot You in Your Home”

    4. Aditi Haider

      today the kkk members become cops cuz they can lynch black and brown people without consequence

    5. Colonizer-Chan

      I mean you know well enough that police can’t be unmilitarized since the gangs are up and about along with terrorism as a threat. We burned a big bridge with the war on drugs and the war on poverty

    6. Colonizer-Chan

      >most of these people were Ah the 13% back at it

    7. Colonizer-Chan

      Reminder that cops claimed the swat team raiding Dennis Tuttle’s home didn’t have body cameras. A no knock raid on the wrong house where they killed everyone inside. They have started to prosecute some officers but it won’t go anywhere

    8. Colonizer-Chan

      >cops shoots a child after missing the main target *a dog* Oh man this meme doesn’t die

    9. Colonizer-Chan

      American police: have hours long shootout with a thief in a UPS truck: Thief, hostage, and a random civilian are dead. Some boomer conceal carrying a pistol in a church: *Drops a mass shooter in under 10 seconds with a single shot* Im gonna trust the gun nuts more than the cops now

    10. Colonizer-Chan

      Ah so that’s why the ATF is now called the BATFE. Nothing says the fed like burning 80+ people to death and damaging all evidence they can. I totally love the federal government. *please don’t shoot me*

    11. Dennis Robertson

      I was with you until you brought that POS race bater Dyson. He is a racist and a pseudo intellectual blow hard and what Chris Rock would call a fucking neggar. Don't get me wrong, I'm not siding with the cops but that race bating POS is just as bad or worse

    12. Sharon Kwan

      This is what Hong Kong's protest has led into, the awareness of how police can act with impunity. It has a very similar system and Hong Kong protesters are calling for independent inquiry. #standiwithhongkong #fightforfreedom

    13. Benjamin Raskin

      This is another case especially in America where money out weights are human decency if we care more for monetary value in compensation than we do for our fellow human beings, are we even human beings anymore

    14. UnrecycleRubdish

      Hasan is a genius. His use of comedy to expose a specific issue is powerful and unprecedented in our media. And his presentation is flawless. Patriot Act should be a national requirement in high school curricula for teaching presentation skills.

    15. SatansLittleGamer

      20:54 Hey! I have that Scarface poster! :)

    16. Nadeem adam

      Kill a cop life time of prison, if a cop kills an innocent they walk free? What kind of rule is that!

      These police shootings are frustrating & I'm not even American! I just watch it. It's so stupid. US police looks like they're looking to shoot someone for no reason.

    19. Chief

      I’m the future racism isn’t going away. It just going to shift from hating colored people to hating white people

    20. John M Latzo

      Totally agree with all this. But who employs Cops? We do the citizens. But the cops bosses do nothing, the politicians.


      That 'finger banging" line had me in stitches

    22. Enoch Brown

      Hasan is better than CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Sixty Minutes and The View all put together and shaken up for good measure. He is THE BOMB that this country needs. God bless you, Hasan.

      I worked for several years as a crisis manager with a lot of similarities to police work. I'd come in and deescalate serious, violent people. Had I acted like a cop every time someone tried to punch me, I'd have gotten fired. I, instead, learned to deescalate violent people. I've talked people out of holding big knives and all kinds of stuff. I felt that's how police should be for years. Also everyone should watch The Wire. It's an eye-opening look at how the police behave in the real world.

    26. John Lindquist

      Watch Live PD for 5 episodes and see how hard it is. The biggest problem is combative civilians and MM telling them resisting is okay.

    27. Thermal Chill

      If government didn't wanted them to act like criminals, they wouldn't and till there is an all out war on cops, nothing will change but only will get worse .

    28. Sasidhar Reddy

      Bang I did it before you

    29. Jhansy Sudevi

      There's gotta be a better place to live, fk this dumb ass country.

      1. jauxro

        I've heard good things about Norway and New Zealand

      2. Jhansy Sudevi

        In case we needed new reasons to hate cops

    30. Zach Westerfield

      My only issue with your conclusions is that as long as the police in general protect bad cops it is perfectly reasonable to be anti-cop in general.

    31. No One

      *I love The Patriot Act!* Thanks for *no ads* and all the articulate, detailed, informative videos with factual accounts of what's going on in this world!

    32. Zephyri LaBelle

      I don't know if this has come up, but if part of the problem is Prosecutors? Why not just bring them from areas where those sets of police officers have no influence? Like if a cop has done something in say Northern California, bring one from Southern California where they would have no reasonable correlation with that division? Or have prosecutors who only deal with police cases and don't deal with other forms of cases. Just a suggestion but it may help with the conflict of interest.

    33. Arwa neutral

      Oh wow we hv our own version of US cops.... Music cue enter UP and Delhi police...

    34. Funky Babazozo

      Exactly why I celebrate every cop death as karmic justice.

    35. Sharaya Smith

      Major shout-out for this episode!

    36. Obviously True

      Living in a shitty country + too many guns = American death culture. It ain't rocket science.

    37. Peter Paj

      He raises interesting points, and the tragic consequences of poor judgment, mistakes, unpreparedness, ineptitude, and malice on the part of some police decisions do indeed reverberate throughout the communities affected by them. And the families are traumatized in ways that are irreparable. But, as per usual, Hasan's tendentious portrayal of the overall issues as stake is emblematic of the arrogance and ignorance of SJWs, who ostensibly portray themselves as sophisticated, crusading intellectuals. Yet, they fail to see the embarrassing impotence of presenting arguments that ignore the broader context of the problem, and instead of searching for plausible solutions to the problems that occur in the day-to-day policing of our communities, he claims to have divined a deeply-ingrained, intractable structural deficiency within our social institutions. Not only is his case weak, he employs the sort of sanctimonious sophistry that has resulted in liberals crying in our lattes on the first Wednesday of every fourth November, and whinging with indignant fury until the next election. He ignores the fact that cops are not paid well and are feared, disliked, and even hated by the majority of people they encounter. They DO have to be in a state of constant vigilance, sadly. And even good cops can make mistakes that forever change the lives of the communities they serve, as well as their own and that of their families.

      This needs the same amount of shares on Facebook as it has views on US-new

    39. Kyle

      How does this not violate the 14th amendment right to equal protection under the law?

    40. Anonym

      Well, even as somebody who doesnt live in america I think this is a rather difficult topic. As soon as you let police officers get charged for using their guns they will start to think about using their guns which, especially in america, will most certainly lead to police officers getting killed more often. The police killing people is just a symptom, the fact that you can buy guns pretty much everywhere is the main problem. It's not unreasonable to train your police to shoot as soon as they feel threatened in a country where pretty much everybody can pull a gun on you anytime.

    41. Linus Testicle Tips

      i hope you make an episode on Kashmir unless you are afraid of modi and BJP like rest of indian muslims ?

    42. Moha Amip

      "Killing isn't that big of a deal" so many evils on this planet! F*ck old man.

    43. Tamia Luster

      Why hasn't anyone else ever talked about this?

    44. Bubby Rink

      Wow cops are fucked up

    45. Ican FeeLIt

      If one cop shoots in the leg or something someone by mistake and u win a case against him all the murderers will be able to sue cops. Don't trust this guy. He wants drug pimps to rule the country

      1. BALD CAT

        @Ican FeeLIt um now what ur saying is if some guy gets shot in the leg and sues the cop rightfully for harming him is wrong cuz now the cop cant help people well the issue what ur saying is a cop can shoot a criminal yes if it was deemed as necessary but he cant shoot an innocent person and get away with it

      2. Ican FeeLIt

        @BALD CAT well now how he gonna do that if he is afraid that the criminal is going to sue him?

      3. BALD CAT

        ey the cop mistakenly shot a gun in the leg he should get punished his job is to keep citizens safe not hurt them at least have a good argument

    46. humpapa

      lulz... do about porn...

    47. tiyenin

      "That's like if Michael Vick's favorite movie was Air Bud. Why would he like that movie? It's about basketball!"

    48. William Sikora

      In the last five years I'm gonna guess that unwarranted policemen killings have gone down do to all the protest and hype. How many homicides happened in that same five years in those respected cities? Chicago had like 3 people maybe, Baltimore had like 4 and St.Louis some how had added people I bet. So, take those guns away from the cops it's a no brainer. Cops are like bad or something!

    49. dumb thicc wizard

      I'm anti cop sorry The bad cops are employed and many because of the bad system

      1. ronak narkhede

        Anti cop? Are you dumb the country will be in shambles.

    50. Stefan C

      I agree with the points of the video but Dyson is an imbecile & a racist, Exhibit A: Maybe not the best example when trying to make a point about racism.

    51. Lowes Brown

      I just realised calibre press is the same organization that made surviving edged weapons which was featured on redlettermedia's best of the worst series. Wow they are some fucked up people.

    52. Shady treetops

      5:07 alright so I missed this the first time watching this but wth kind of attitude does he imply when saying that action is faster than reaction with so much conviction? Frankly I think this entire video is pretty disturbing--- important to know and nicely packaged but quite scary all in all

    53. Japonesa

      Coworkers, just like everyone working at the DMV Judges and the PD.... #iloveny

    54. Hugh LaRoche

      Thank you!!!!

    55. Ransored

      Lmao that john wick joke at 10:25 was amazing

    56. pixelmato


    57. Doodelay

      So the murders of black people by police is usually racially motivated plus bad training, but their acquittal is a systemic issue? That's my takeaway here

    58. Zayboy108

      I feel like that ratio between training with violence vs deescalation is due to the war on drugs that happened

    59. Vegarot Fusion

      The fear based training affect of the latest decade of graduates from the police academy is quite noticeable in Australia as our country becomes more and more Americanized. Cases of police brutality, excessive force and fire arms usage has significantly increased. Their people skills have remarkably dropped. With most having an ego and sense of self worth that was once only reserved for Parking inspectors. There are still some good cops out there. But they are all just one day from retirement.

    60. Shad

      moral of the story: all cops are bad, and the system is even worst

    61. George Washington

      Bruhhh. A harley Davidson and scarface poster in the union reps office. WHAT A FKKN TOOL.

    62. Darkman Studios

      I say dissolve every police force and arm every sane adult.

    63. GaslitWorld f. Melissa B

      I am actually surprised that police aren't trained in de-escalation. I remember when they were called "Officers of the Peace." I guess I can forget that.

    64. jon deme

      Guns are not the problem, bad pig police are....

    65. Uni Amni

      So the police union is a organized crime group under the definition of law.

    66. AK907Kingspade

      They're trying to make mindless, desensitized, killing machines; all whilst pushing mob-style family values in the guise of their unions.

    67. Perplexed Bystander

      Why didn't he go into the history of police??

    68. Ricky Evans

      Too many times I have met cops like this.

    69. Griffin Chalem

      14:30 Your message may be important, but you should never use Aljazeera as a source.

    70. Chris Valade

      Being anti bad-cop means ... being anti-cop! If you're a cop, and you tow the line, BUT don't speak out against misconduct, racism, brutality, or ANYTHING, well, you may have well have just committed the act yourself. And how many cops have ever spoken out against such things??? The few that do get harassed, threatened, etc. If you want to be a 'good cop,' you just don't have the option, period.
