I fucking want a shirt that just says “Crime” on it
What the fuck does this mean?
Frankenstein’s monster here has good fashion sense and, as you can see by the ironic “crime” t-shirt, a great subtle sense of humor and probably some punk-adjacent political views at the least. The question even implies that he’s volunteering to patrol the streets to keep people safe and reduce people’s reliance on cops
Not only do I want him patrolling my neighborhood, I want to ask him out
like…the crime frankenstein looks lovely and the cop looks like he’s gonna murder you if you breathe too loud
Crime Frank knows what it’s like to be prejudged based on appearance, so you know he’s gonna take a little time to think about what he’s seeing when he arrives on the scene.
No question about it, Crime Frank for me!
Now I want fanart of Crime Frankenstein. I want him to come to represent community-run conflict resolution/crisis response programs. Images of Crime Frankenstein driving intoxicated people home, calmly talking people through mental health crises, breaking up fights nonviolently, supervising safe injection sites for people who suffer from drug addiction, etc.
We stan a king
Reblog if you’d prefer Crime Frankenstein’s monster to patrol your neighborhood instead of a cop
We really are a police state.
It’s worse than that. That wasn’t a rubber bullet, that was another tear gas canister–you can see it a few seconds later in the footage when the camera pans over to the advancing cops.
And they shot him in the crotch with it.
If I were feeling charitable I’d say that the cop who fired the shell was aiming for center of mass and miscalculated the distance and hit the guy low.
But I’m not feeling charitable. It’s clear that was a deliberate malicious attack designed to hurt the guy as badly as possible with the weapon at hand. The goal was to cause him pain and intimidate bystanders.
this really is dystopic, isn’t it?
Shout out to the dude who came and helped him up
THIS IS WHY YOU BLACK BLOC. WHEN EVERYONE IS MASKED AND IN ALL BLOC, IT MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE POLICE TO TARGET INDIVIDUALS LIKE THIS
MASK UP, COME IN BLOC, BE PREPARED, YOU. COULD SAVE SOMEONES LIFE
Also get to know your street medics and maybe buy them a drink later. They’ll often be the ones picking you up and making sure you’re good after this shit happens
does anyone know what this graphic says in plain text please thanks
How To Do It: Black Block Tactics
Allow demonstrators to take action without fear of immediate identification. If you choose to wear a mask, wear it right.
It is not enough to half cover your face. Even if you get away, the police may use photos or videos to charge you later. Cover your hair, face, arms and hands. Cloth gloves are the best. Take out piercings. Make sure there are no identifying features on your clothes, shoes or backpack. If you bring any materials with you, wipe them down first with rubbing alcohol first to get the prints off. Don’t bring anything you don’t need.
If possible, come to a demonstration with a small group of people you trust. Choose your crew based on shared intentions, not just friendship. You’re here to have each other’s back in the streets and follow up if one of you gets arrested or hurt. Strangers needs to protect each other too. Stay physically close, do not spread out, so that if police try to enter the crowd, you can “accidentally” get in their way. The front of the march might need to slow down while the back catches up. Stay moving, though: a tight, mobile crowd is difficult to surround or disperse.
Plan Your Exit
Always wear “civilian clothes” under your hoodie so you can de-bloc and blend in a crowd or smoothly walk away. Keep an eye out for danger zones and escape routes. If things heat up, stay calm and act decisively. Commit to your exit when you decide you’re done. Sometimes you have to sprint and hide; sometimes you just step onto the sidewalk and remove your mask. You can de-bloc in the middle of a friendly crowd if you’re sure you are well-screened.
Keep It Quiet
Bragging and storytelling are natural but they are easy to use against us. If you have to talk, choose someone trustworthy who was with you in the streets. Don’t post anything on facebook you wouldn’t show to a cop. Same goes for Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr. Remember the police will read your texts and call-log if they arrest you.
Never, Ever Snitch
If arrested, invoke your right to remain silent. Name, address and no more.
Captioned under request.
Ok, here’s a thing to remember: the cops do not give a shit about anyone’s rights. They hate your right to remain silent. They despise your lawyer. The only thing cops give a shit about is getting *caught* violating your rights… And then, only if it has consequences.
Do not trust a cop. Do not give them anything. Ever.
Watch: In a powerful Congresional speech, Sandra Bland’s mother called people who think they’re woke “the walking dead” because of how little we still know
The speech included a rousing call to action before the newly formed Congressional Caucus On Black Women & Girls. And her words were incredibly resonant, even if you think you know the whole story.

fucking hell, plz share this
My heart hurts for these victims and this mother.

RIP Aiyana Jones, who was killed in her sleep by police 7 years ago this week. black kids deserve to grow up too. #BLM
Tell me again how we’re all one and just need to love each other.
Her grandmothers screams in that courthouse… My God…. Chills. It even shook the officer and he lost it… you knew she was telling the truth. How he sleeps at night… I don’t know.
probably on a pile of money donated by racists
It’s a fucking shame… maaan… smh.
She would’ve turned 18 this year and graduated high school. The protests are for her too!
Joseph Weekly sleeps fine.
They all do.
August 24 2020 – A cop catches a brick with his head at a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after police shot Jacob Blake,
Protesting is a FELONY in Tennessee now…Facism at it’s finest (x)
I’m sorry, but people need to know this. This is LITERALLY the most blatant telltale sign of totalitarianism and this needs to be spread like wildfire.
DO NOT LOOK AWAY.
The right to protest is in the Constitution.
So much for the #conservitards upholding the law.
why is the onion the most truthful news source
If you have ever spent time with US cops, you know this to be true.
