ACAB, short for All Cops are Bastards, or All Coppers are Bastards, is a popular term and political slogan used by those with general grievances towards police forces across North America. Although the slogan has a long history, at one point being co-opted by racist skinheads in the 80s, the slogan has entered mainstream discourse, especially in leftist spheres.
Additionally, ACAB has been used as a slogan in skinhead subculture, yet because it has been more widely adopted in the general population, the phrase should be judged in the context in which it appears.
