Update, 8/26/2021: On January 23, 2019, I emailed Freddie deBoer and asked him if he had ever considered republishing, or allowing someone else to republish, a series of his essays he had taken offline that I found myself going back to the archive pages of over and over again, and frequently recommending to others. He gave me permission to republish whatever I wanted, and for a while Planet of Cops lived here. Now that Freddie has a Substack and has reposted the piece, though, you should read it over there.
