INDECLINE Presents A.C.A.B – “All Cops Are Bastards”
The team at INDECLINE are back with a new video shortly after sharing their record 3,100 foot-long graffiti piece with the world back in May. The group recently released video with the acronym A.C.A.Bm, standing for All Cops Are Bastards. It is a slogan used in graffiti and other forms of art brought to spread the awareness of cops and police officers that do not follow their oath, and are in fact bastards of the force. The recent string of media attention over the past few years has brought this meaning back to the surface and more into the public eye. With a nose-to-the-sky, above the law attitude, we see the officer in this video scoff at the homeless population, resort to physical violence, and the ever popular excessive use of force.
Scare tactics and intimidation play a big role when confronted by police, and this video does not shy away from it. You’ll see that baton and gun scare tactics are just the tip of the iceberg, and are used by police to make people talk under pressure to self incriminate or snitch.
