Obama started this cop hating crap and now cops have a harder time and their job had tripled in danger when it was already bad to begin with. These officers are sworn to uphold the law and never know what they are walking into. Don't break the freaking law and you have nothing to worry about.

This isn't on Facebook. It is literally impossible to check everything posted on their site, which is why they rely on the reporting system. If you see something offensive, flag it.

Facebook should be held accountable for some of the blame as they are supposed to be approving pics & videos before they're posted. They allow some & deny other benign ones.

THIS man should definitely be charged with hate crimes and inciting hate crimes.
