"they do everything they can to get the white guys that gun down innocent people out alive and then blame their crimes on some mental illness but when the police are dealing with actual disabled people they don’t give a shit"
first of all if you’re dealing with the police you just better PRAY that you don’t have a psychiatric disorder
police beat a 64 year old deaf man for not being able to follow their verbal commands
police tasered a 15 year old autistic black child and faced no consequences
police shot and killed a schizophrenic double amputee for holding a “weapon” that turned out to be a pen
police murdered a young man with down’s syndrome for refusing to leave a movie theater
and when i was a child and someone called the police when they heard me scream in pain in fear all my mother had to tell the policeman was that i was autistic and that i had adhd and he disregarded the fact that i told him how she had repeatedly stomped on my ribcage
the police exist to maintain the status quo and the status quo favors white bodies and able bodies they enact violence on an institutional level and some of them might be good people yes but i cannot trust them to protect me and damn right i am going to hate them
