Okay but also like. Did you notice who was pissed that frank was killing dudes?? It was white dudes. Ladies and POC and people routinely ducked over by cops were like ffs thank you??? For doing something to help us??? And white dudes are like but that's what the police are for. And what's gross is actual cops trying to appropriate the punisher logo like what the actual duck.
EXACTLY! more-than-likely straight, white dudes who have a problem with him. now, i really don’t like to get political- especially bc this is just a role-playing blog– and it’s not like we saw ALL the potential jurors during that specific scene– but you’re right! because women and poc are the least likely to be defended by cops, the people who actually get paid to do the less-extreme version of what frank is doing.
i’ve also noticed how in the comics it’s usually the white, male cops who are like “but i’m a COP!” when trying to defend their corrupt behavior to frank.
and it really is disgusting?? that some cops out there have a bias while frank castle - a literal SERIAL KILLER has no bias whatsoever? he doesn’t care about your gender (okay, maybe a little– he gives women benefit of the doubt majority of the time unless he absolutely knows a woman did something wrong), or your skin color. if you’re GUILTY, you’re dead. he protects ALL the innocent people regardless of their opinion towards him while more and more cops in the recent years have seem to grow a horrible bias against the people they’re sworn to protect. frank didn’t swear to protect anyone. he fought a war, he did his job. but he made it his PURPOSE to protect everyone that needed it. he itches and stays up at night if he lets innocent people die.
now, idk if these writers did that intentionally, but i think that’s another great example of how frank operates. of how he could be so much worse but he just isn’t. he’s literally seen the worst the world has to offer– and he doesn’t care about the individual. he cares about whether or not they’re guilty. THAT’S how black and white he is. there’s no bias, there’s no gray areas. the only gray area is age to him.
