I stopped participating a while ago when i noticed that
cops seemed to congregate in any sub talking about 
the most recent cop murder that hit the news, to argue 
how "hard policing is" and give all sorts of lines of bullshit
to justify the latest murder, pushing down any opposing
post. They didn't all identify as cops and maybe some of
them were just scumbag cop lovers but, anyway, fuck it.
