trash collectors are braver than the troops
And that's how the Yellow Vest movement began...
@jacethechicken This but unironically. And they're way more vital for your health and safety and society as a whole than going and killing brown people for their oil.
@lousycanuck oh I wasn't being ironic either, it's just the format is making fun of pro-cop Facebook "memes"
@jacethechicken Oh nice, in which case I say, like, good job comrade
@jacethechicken This sounds weird. What are the most frequent causes?
@amiloradovsky @jacethechicken exposure to dangerous materials (biohazards, sharps etc), exposure to disease and large object accidents (vehicle collisions, falling items, etc). there's a lot of research/reading on how dangerous it is and it's one of the most important jobs to ensure civilian health. bless these bros tbh
also trash people perform a vital public service which is important to our society's public health
cops just oppress people
Turns out if you carry a gun and wear a ballistic vest at all times, you're less likey to die than a fucking pizza delivery person, let alone a profession that works with heavy machinery and hazardous materials.
Cops are fucking cowards with a victim complex.
@jacethechicken Is this true? Is there some reason they die so much?
@reddietoexplore @jacethechicken Here’s a sorry that goes into a bit more detail. According to the chart in article trash collectors are 3x as likely to die in the line of duty. Compare to the other listed jobs at the top and it looks like working long hours around heavy machines is dangerous.
@jacethechicken It's always amazing to me that a police officer dying for literally any reason is grounds for holding a fascist military parade. Even if their death was completely unrelated to their job. Massive parade.
What happens when someone from the department of public works gets shot while working to improve road quality? They get a 2"x1" mention in the newspaper the next day.
