anyway, apparently there's discord servers for plods in which to get access you have to even show your cop credentials.
apparently these discord servers are 4chan levels of toxic. far-right rhetoric, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia -- the chef's selection of liberal outrage, naturellement. but it does seem that this is an established trend within the police force, and i do think it is overwhelmingly of public interest in a way that, say, private mesasages between private citizens on whatsapp are not. these people are entrusted with 'keeping the peace' and protecting our freedoms, and yet they seem to be forming a 'fifth column' of idiocy instead.
is it too much to expect that our police officers exhibit good moral standing? especially when these same people are routinely accused of institutional racism, institutional homophobia, abuses of power ... and are implicated in people dying in custody, women being kidnapped and raped, etc.
