y’all wonder why we don’t call the cops
For context: This guy is a ex cop who is there to expose the fact that police heavily manipulate these statistics to cover up the truth. He aint a bad person who is lying, he is a good person who is pointing out that the police is lying.
This cannot be fixed
it’s interesting how I haven’t seen news coverage about it in months. I wasn’t even aware they were still ongoing.
10.10.20. Washington DC
BLM protests continue, over 120 days now. DC protesters have been in the streets for months to defund the police. In response to calls to defund the police, the police have increased their brutality. How could reform work on those who abuse power to maintain it?
“Still protesting bc
police reaction to protests against police brutality
is police brutality”
people drop everything as soon as it isn’t trendy.
It’s not that people are dropping it; it’s more like corporate media making a conscious choice not to cover the ongoing protests.
THEY FUCKING RELEASED DEREK CHAUVIN ON BOND ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!
Something that I think is really interesting is that you can go back to the Minneapolis livestreams and watch this happen in real time. First 3 nights of the George Floyd uprising, there were only 2 people who could consistently maintain their signal, as a lot of journalists’ signals got spotty once things were getting hairy.
Both of these streamers kept admonishing people for busting shit up, kept calling for protests to be strictly peaceful.
One of them had to flee because the police scanners mentioned him by name and told officers he had a gun and was threatening people (he wasn’t), I’m not sure if he was streaming after that but he sounded like he got a lot more angry after that.
The other one you could see change by the hour. I think it was after the first night she stopped admonishing people for acting “violently” because she understood it. Then by the third night, I think she was kicking tear gas back towards police lines and helping provide medical to folks on the front lines.
We are an occupied country, like all the the US occupies.
