police

Didn’t want to post these police brutality headlines selected from the past three months because they are so negative and depressing. But it’s what we see everyday, see and read and watch and hear.

The police are a para-military force whose primary purpose is to protect the possessions of the rich . . . their secondary purpose is to protect their own power . . . their hobbies seem to be breaking the law and abusing the rest of us.

It’s up to us to not put up with it.
