The New York Police Department (NYPD) faced a terrible backlash when their Twitter campaign #myNYPD went horribly wrong. The hostile response from the people has now spread to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), which launched a similar campaign, giving rise to the fear that the cop shaming may be the internet’s latest epidemic.

Twitter critics of the Los Angeles police have been posting photos of people being mistreated or injured in scuffles with officers.

A few days after the outrage against the #myNYPD campaign, Twitter is flooded with yet more evidence of police brutality – this time from another city.

The NYPD was probably left stunned after their request asking people to send in pictures with hashtag #myNYPD went all wrong.

Now this onslaught of #myLAPD tweets shows that police brutality is rampant across the United States.

Here is a list of Innocent People The Cops Accidentally Killed

The increase in police brutality is terribly alarming.. Last year,dozens of cities across the US gathered to protest as part of the October 22 Coalition. Organizers stated that despite thousands of people being killed by cops over the past couple of decades, the police aren’t being held accountable.

But this new social media trend seems to be catching up and if it continues and spreads to other cities and their police departments, there will be some serious trouble.

It may just be an uprising in the making.

Perhaps, it’s time the police across the United States is held accountable for its actions.
