Another victim of police violence
@InvaderXan i will avenge you, fellow inflatable
@InvaderXan that’s extremely good, gators/crocs are extremely good tbh. have you seen the vid going around of a gator knocking a cop out cold? it’s very good and I’ve watched it on loop too many times to count now lol
@NormalPopsicle Yeah, that's been all over twitter lately 😂
@InvaderXan Furry twitter is, as always, ready:
@InvaderXan the more you know...
@InvaderXan first I've heard of it..
@maloki I was wondering if this was an established thing or if it was new.
Or, this being the internet, if it was a thing some rando just made up. Though the pictures seem to be real.
@InvaderXan it may be newish this year, but i've not heard it before that.
I'm not on facebook any more, so I'm very disconnected from Sweden, actually
Your translation is correct btw, but if I am to be nitpicky, we call these crocodiles, not alligators(though I am not sure on the distinction, is it geographical?), and iirc they were, as antifascist symbols, called 'kamrat krokodil'(comrade crocodile).
the distinction between a crocodile and an alligator is, as far as i am aware, the way the jaws open; if there's muscle such that the base of the jaw forms a c, like in the art of the first image, it is a crocodile, and if the miscle is not that prominent so the base of the mouth is a < it is an alligator
@InvaderXan the Winslow strikes again
@InvaderXan Florida boys love to see this
