It Looks Like Austin Police Faked Getting Thank You Letters From “Fans” And People Are Dunking On Them (28 Tweets)

Like police in every city, the Austin Police Department has been very busy…attacking protestors. This past weekend APD shot a bean bag round into the head of a young man named Justin Howell, CNN reports, causing brain damage. When he was carried towards police for medical attention, the group carrying him were fired upon with rubber bullets.

How have they responded? By sending themselves what looks to be a bunch of fake thank you letters.

APD shared several pictures of their supposed thank you letters on Twitter, captioning them:

“We can’t express enough how grateful we are to serve you, Austin. Our officers have been working around the clock during these unprecedented times and thank everyone who took the time to write and make our day a little brighter.”

People were pretty quick to call them to account for their actual crimes committed against the Austin protestors and Howell:


And everyone else was pretty quick to dunk on them for their terrible propaganda. Seems like we should be more upset about Howell, but since we’re talking about defunding the police, we might as well explore why they’re both unnecessary and incredibly stupid.

If you’re going to create fake documents, at least make them convincing! Let your contempt for these officers grow in proportion to their ratio:
