The execrable "give back to the community" guilt-trip.
I really hate the guilt-trip phrase “give-back” the way that it is used here and in the post that it links to.
The term is loaded with the implication that something was wrongly taken and that the taker has “given back” to make amends for their aggression against those that they have victimized.
People need to call bullshit on this crap.
These police officers did not take something wrongly. They did not victimize "the community" by taking something from it by force or by fraud. Neither they nor any of us should allow ourselves to manipulated by the cult of victim-hood that promotes that damnable “give-back” crap. It demeans all of us when it is used.
