As politicians, governors, and police chiefs turn on them, increasingly with threats to disband police unions or reduce funding (which is mostly wages), it becomes clear police officers have a class interest.

Sure, but the police are not members of the proletariat. They, in any bourgeois dictatorship, are the enforcer arm of the bourgeois apparatus which keeps classes stratified. The most effective way for a police officer to reduce the power and influence of the bourgeois is to resign. This is mostly unique among occupations.


Rationalize your philosophy if your prefer, but I don’t think this is going to help your movement. Police officers the country over are feeling pressure from management. Corporate America is strongly backing BLM initiatives. I don’t think your anti-police stance, which is shared by large swaths of the upper class, exactly makes you hand in hand with the working class.

oh, fuck off with this aimee shit, it doesn't work off twitter. i'm not advocating for abolishing police under capitalism so that we can have Mcdeathsquads, but they're certainly not friends of anyone with revolutionary ideals that fall outside of the Overton window of politically correct convictions - left wing or right wing.

Insofar as that police unions in the United States have acted as barriers to genuine institutional reform of the police, I can sympathise with the desire to disband them. The IWW infographic Cisairse posted, however, only makes sense within a Marxist ideological bubble. In the real world, even though police may well be corrupt, overly aggressive and institutionally prejudiced, the existence of public law enforcement is still more beneficial to the working class than it is to the property-owning class. The mere presence of police on the streets acts as a deterrence to crime, which makes life that little bit safer for the general public; in absence of a public police force the less well-off would be the most heavily impacted by rising crime whilst the affluent would be able to sequester themselves in safe upper- and upper-middle-class areas as well as investing in private security, luxuries not available to the great unwashed.

None of this overrides the very justified concerns that have been raised about the conduct of American police, or the issues with police forces in other countries (my own included) for that matter; but it is absurd to see the police only through the lens of class warfare as "objects of oppression," and this sort of blinkered tunnel-vision is a major issue with Marxism and left-wing thought in general. To summarise, yes, there are valid objections to be raised to the unionisation of the police force; but IWW's Marxist analysis is still dumb.

I'm generally on board, but due to how sensitive the job of a teacher is, any sort of bad action can have much larger consequences than with most other jobs. Worst case scenario, they actively protect sexual predators (though I assume that this is rare, and most questionable blocks of termination are for teachers who just kinda suck at their jobs).

Stopping police brutality is strongly working class. Defund the police, vandalize the war memorial, run over the cops, ect... is strongly upperclass, white, and liberal.

Protecting child rapists is definitely a concern. If that's an institutional problem, we should definitely work to address it.

As for what "fundamentally" makes them better, the answer is simple: teachers are not warriors in class conflict. Teachers are not on the front lines of the workingman's struggle for power and liberation; they are not abetting the bourgeois state in its quest for oppression of the proletariat.

Shh. Teachers unions have already been captured by the long march through institutions; we don't have to worry about their abuse. It's like in Germany where it's nothing to be worried about.
Clearly the concern is actually the rounding error number of people unjustifiably shot by cops every year, some number of whom are coloured.

Not as bad as the institutionalized cover-ups for sexual predators, but teachers' unions are also geared to favour a certain generation of employees to the detriment of others. If you haven't been in the system for 20+ years, the unions don't give a shit about you aside from your union dues.

Sure people get killed by police, although this is not always bad (and most the people killing during this unrest were NOT killed by police) although it can be bad when the killing is not legally and ethically justified but I fail to see how this changes the point.

In the only conversation I've had with a teacher about unions, he expressed intense frustration that newly hired teachers were more willing to negotiate lower salaries and generally held anti-union views, which he believed was contributing to a culture of disdain for new hires among teachers who had worked at the school for many years and had been very involved in previous union negotiations.

More people have been killed by protestors or bystanders than police officers, at least in connection to the protests themselves.

Calvin Horton Jr. was shot by a business owner while looting his store.

David Patrick Underwood was a law enforcement officer murdered by a right-wing terrorist.

Barry Perkins was a protestor who got run over by a FedEx employee who was trying to avoid being assaulted by looters.

James Scurlock was a protestor who was shot by a business owner after engaging in an alteraction, alongside fellow looters, with the man in question.

Sarah Grossman was a protestor who died from acute respiratory issues after being exposed to tear gas.

Dorian Murell was shot and killed by a fellow protestor after allegedly pushing the man.

Chris Beaty was a business owner shot by looters.

Marvin Francois was shot by looters while picking his son up from a protest.

John Tiggs was shot by looters.

Myqwon Blanchard was shot by a looter.

David McAtee, a business owner, was shot by law enforcement after an exchange of fire when he was mistaken for a looter.

Italia Marie Kelly and someone else were allegedly shot as they were leaving a protest, probably by looters or people uninvolved in the protests.

Jose Gutierrez and Victor Cazares were shot by "outsider agitators."

Police shot Jorge Gomez.

A man in Philadelphia was shot while trying to loot a gunstore. The mayor was "deeply troubled" by vigilante justice - as opposed to being troubled by violent people trying to get ahold of guns.

Some guy blew himself with an explosive device while trying to loot an ATM machine.

Sean Monterrosa was shot by police.

Robert Forbes was struck by a vehicle.
