Reason User banned (duration pending): Downplaying and minimizing police brutality and systemic racism, antagonizing other members
I'm pretty sure any police officers causing abuse in developed countries are being appropriately dealt with and it really isn't as much of a widespread problem as you're making out. US cops kill about 1,000 people every year in a country of over 300 million and you can guarantee most of those were weapon-wielding criminals and those that weren't haven't been glossed over. But a video hits social media and one cop (he could get 25 years btw) murdering someone is indicative of genocide. Racism is still a massive problem in society and recent events will hopefully lead to positive changes but let's not blow something out of proportion and describe killing cops in a video game as cathartic because of a handful of real-life incidents in relative terms. Cops aren't inherently evil.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Exclusionary and dismissive rhetoric surrounding the perspective of the differently-abled
Just stop, this game relies on pattern recognition and not making mistakes, people creating disabled strawmen to try and push changes are getting annoying. It's no more physically strenuous than any other game based around melee combat.
