Photos: Denver Police Pinterest page softens image of department...usually

Big photos below.
A ruling that Denver can be put on trial for police brutality and feds' decision not to charge three cops who brutally beat Alex Landau in 2009 cast Denver Police in a negative light. But the DPD continues to fight for its reputation, with one battleground being social media. An example: a new Pinterest page featuring photos of officers with kids, dogs and hot new cars -- plus a SWAT team pic unwisely labeled "Heading into the heart of darkness." See them below, along with DPD categories and captions.

Btw, I think you meant herd. Keep fooling yourself that your favorite group is innocent. Much more herd-like than any liberal leaning people I have encountered. Look at all the straight up BS and lies many conservatives try to pass off as fact. Oddly enough a lot of it is from FOX News...remind me again who has the herd mentality?

Festus still projecting. The double standard of delusional lard-assed wing nuts like Festus: bad press for police dept: "judge individually"; a random individual commits a violent crime: generalize an entire race/creed/what-have-you till the cows come home.

@Jeven Liberals tend to lump people together because they don't really undestand individuallity. They are collectivist and heard types by definition.

 @Juan_Leg  Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed towards influncing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.


Now why would Village Voice Media, the Westword´s and Patricia Calhoun´s owners, need to propagandize the public?

It's pretty dumb to identify all police good or bad. You have to judge individuals individually and hold each accountable for their own actions. I know good cops and bad cops. I know good teachers and I know terrible ones. Same thing with parents an etc.

@CoreyDonahue That's my question to WW .  Do note I'm NOT one of the regular WW haters, as I like and appreciate many of their writers . I'm speaking up against this article, ESPECIALLY w/ WW as it's source . 

I EXPECT this type of %100 B.S. from the Denver Post ! It's not what I'm accustomed to reading coming from Roberts & WW .
