Backlash forces police to stop using Punisher logo on their cars

This happened in USA because of course it did. I can imagine the conversation that took place before they decided to paint gigantic skulls on their cars:

"Now that there has been criticism that the police use too much force. what kind of symbol would make the people like us again and correctly describe us?" "...How about the comic-book psychotic vigilante who kills criminals, shows no mercy and has in history been shown killing people for jaywalking and other petty crimes?" "BRILLIANT!"

Or as the police actually claimed:

Quote
“That design is basically to give back to the police officers,” Logan, who has been with the department for 13 years, said before reversing course on the emblems. “Our lives matter just as much as anybody’s. ... I’m not racist or anything like that, I’m not trying to stir anything up like that. I consider it to be a ‘warrior logo.’ Just ’cause it has ‘Blue Lives Matter’ on the hood, all lives matter. That decal represents that we will take any means necessary to keep our community safe.”

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

So they admit they are in favor of extralegal killings.

Why would they want giant grinning skulls on their cars for?

And of course, half the reason the Punisher does what he does is because he thinks the police are useless. There's just layers upon layers of irony in this.
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Yeah, if the pagans are so smart, why did Jesus invade Pagan-land on the back of a dragon and kill them all!

In fact he's gone after police himself for getting away with murder themselves.

I don't think they know that.
I am offensively offensive. How Offensive!
