The account of the Assam Police has been suspend from this instance.
We decided that we will not welcome cops on this instance, and we encourage the rest of the fediverse to do the same.
Following multiple reports, we decided that it's more important that our community feels safe and in security, than to be a platform for official communication.
Thank you !
Police in general and Justice system particular do not instill trust in most people. Go to a police station ever and you will know what I am talking about. It’s quite natural for people to feel unsafe in their presence. I know it’s quite a travesty that those that are supposed to protect you instill no trust, but that’s the reality. I get your point, but at these dire times I would side with the admins.
@navneetmathur @cm_kropot Banning their official account from an open network is not going to solve any of those problems in the least. They can carry on their more nefarious activities under cover if required anyway. This ban only serves to illustrate a knee jerk reaction, goes against fediverse practice where somebody is banned only for CoC violation and not on a feel or whim, goes against free speech and is opaque without any upfront policies on this. This is worse than banana republic.
