Cop Block is a decentralized organization made up of a diverse group of individuals united by their shared belief that, “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights.”
CopBlockers are committed to highlighting the double standards often granted to those with badges. By documenting police actions with a camera – whether they are illegal, immoral, or just a waste of time and resources – we can work together to show people that “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights” and promote ways to not only film the police, but to get such content in front of as many eyes as possible.
With constructive discourse and knowledge, through the dissemination of different viewpoints and tactics, those who view the content here can not only see, but combat, the frequent violations within modern policing today.
CopBlock does not “hate cops” because CopBlock is the idea that “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights.”
Therefore, it cannot hate, or love, anything. Yet, CopBlock.org was founded on the principles that all human beings have equal rights; no one class or group of people has any more rights than another just because of their job. The failure and inability to realize and act on this philosophy is to the detriment of all individuals. By focusing the disinfecting light of transparency on public officials, we safeguard not only our rights but those of future generations.
Those of us volunteering at CopBlock.org (by contributing content), or via the CopBlock Network, do not condone the initiation of force. As a general practice intellectual property claims of any sort are not enforced here. In fact you are encourage to use information, logos, graphics, etc posted here to join the cause and contribute to activism in your preferred manner.
