  • Ben & Jerry's "Hands-up, don't shoot" BS...........

    I saw this in the Squad Room forum, but me being non-LE, I copied the OP and decided to share it here:

    Originally posted by So Fla Cop View Post
    Though the phrase has been roundly discredited from being a factual element in the police shooting of Michael Brown based on forensic evidence, Ben Cohen, of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream wants Ben and Jerry’s stores to sell t-shirts that read “HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT” as a way to help end “police oppression”. Cohen’s crusade against “police brutality” was also picked up by at least one local store, in Athens, GA, where this was posted to their Facebook page:

    “Our scoop shop managers got to meet THE Ben and Jerry at the annual franchisee/manager retreat! Stay tune to see how our shop will implement Ben’s take on “hands up don’t shoot” campaign to address police brutality and empower children of color.”

    Yesterday however, after a social media backlash to the co-founder’s statements, Ben and Jerry’s released this not-so-apologetic statement on their website:

    “Ben & Jerry’s deeply respects and appreciates all those who protect and serve our communities. We do not subscribe to the narrative that we have to choose between black lives and blue lives. All lives matter.

    There is injustice rooted in race in our society. This is an important issue and is deserving of efforts from all including businesses, organizations and individuals to further peace and understanding in our communities. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said it best: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

    While the Hands Up Don’t Shoot campaign is not being conducted by Ben & Jerry’s business, we support our cofounders as individuals and our independent franchisees to express their values and be activists in their community.”

    This is the same organization that was put on a boycott list for LEOs for donating to the defense fund of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.


    I haven't bought anything B&J since they supported Mumia (or whatever the savage's name is). Somebody should tell this moron that #Black Lives Matter...(unless killed by other blacks) is a fraud.
    It's been a while since I had B&J ice cream, and I have no desire at this point to have any again.

    It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

    I saw this too, but figured that two posts on the same topic would violate a forum rule or something.

    Anyways, add this to the list of products I will no longer buy.

        Well, to be honest, I have no idea if it is permitted or not, I just figured that I better not violate either a written rule or one of the seemingly never ending unwritten ones

          There's about a thousand places in New England alone that have better ice cream than Ben & Jerry's AND don't use part of my money to pay for far left causes. Here's hoping their next batch curdles.

                There's only one B&J that matters, and it ain't Ben & Jerry's.

                    That brought back a memory...

                    When I was in high school every now & then I would go to a butcher shop to get a sandwich for lunch. Their slogan was "you can't beat our meat!"

                      At least not without a little extra tip....

                      In the tip jar, of course

                        Best slogan ever was a radio commercial for Corn Nuts.

                        A jingle called "Bust a Nut."

                          Burger King ran these controversial ads in Singapore in 2009.
