notice how violence happens only after
cops instigate it. they provoke reaction
because that gives them a post-facto excuse
for their brutal behavior. when
they stand down, you see no clashes or even
property damage. minneapolis has vowed to dismantle its PD, likely
on the Camden model, and
the same needs to happen hereóand everywhere.
cops are people, but so were the Nazisóthe
problem is recruits swear allegiance to and
uphold flawed systems. itís time to reject the
outdated, barbarous, slave patrol style of
policing where excessive force and
unaccountable authority trump civil rights.
regarding vandalism, itís worth noting
that most places targeted in seattle were
corporate megaliths such as amazon and
national chains, or symbols of wealth
inequality such as the Ferrari
police brutality and economic
intertwined & people are connecting
the dots, awakening
iím not one to throw
windows but that reactive
phase of rage
parallels the stages of grief. itís
but there's an
evolution from blind anger
action as emotions are '
processed, priorities set, efforts focused.
