I hate threads like this where 97% of folks have the same take and all their comments are saying, "omfg I can't believe this thread and all the people saying [not the majority opinion]".

Like 4 people out of 200+ comments said cops did it on purpose. The other 194 comments are, "certified reddit moment in this thread with everyone thinking it was on purpose."

This happens everywhere on reddit now. Reddit loves telling others what everyone else is saying. If you say "I haven't seen this and no one seems to be saying that" you get accused of being one of those people half the time, or insulted in some other way.

It's just outrage porn. Left or right, people get so hard for it.

It's getting to the point where I don't even like reading the comments because everything is so damn negative.

Outrage porn. Thank you for bestowing that term upon my vernacular. I'm going to use it often.

Hmm almost like this is done on purpose. With the sole intention of creating engagement with users. Maybe even to get these engaged users to tell their friends and family so they now become engaged participants.

Too thick?

I haven’t seen this. No one seems to be saying that.

I've noticed this a lot too and thought it was just me.

So often "ITT: people being racist assholes" and I'm like "really? where? Oh, that buried comment way at the bottom?"

Or someone will have a post, and there is an edit: why all the downvotes fuckers?" and the guy's post has like 1k upvotes.
