I swear the fuckin producers of the simpsons knew shit was an issue before anyone opened their eyes.
this shit was an issue in 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s 80’s before the show existed. (and before that too, I’m sure its been a problem since police forces were organized). It may not have been as apparent before the advent of the internet. But, the police have always been a tool of the rich.
