    Just got back from a rather wild day in Philly, really stupid of me to go in a back brace with a fucked up shoulder but I got away fairly ok, was arrested but charges weren't made. Will post more later, shit escalated quickly.

    Surely this leads to some sort of police reform?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    It’s government. Big government always crushes the people. The only option is to shrink the government.

    Shrink the government so private police are murdering black people instead?

    I expect we'll need to see the protestors meet the police at their level of violence before anything like that happens. As of right now they're not speaking police language yet.




    This should be good

    Trump dun shrunk the guberment from world leader superpower to third world shithole, looks like it is going great. (Some minor exaggeration, but that is the trajectory.)

    lol.


    Busting the police union, who are ultimately the biggest impediment to solving the issue, ironically, would be the right thing to do.
    meh

    We're actually driving at a whole new "fourth world" level of shithole, tbh. I'm from the third world and its much better than trumps america, in many many ways.

    If you shrink it far enough, it won't be murder any more.

    Also:
    - Replace partisan, elected prosecutors with an independent, professional prosecutorial service
    - Reduce the eighteen thousand law enforcement agencies to a number humans can actually hold in their head
    - Institute systems of automatic, independent, external and public review for all incidents of violence involving an officer
    - Replace some of that surplus military kit with actual police equipment and spend the money saved on training in how to deal with riots in a way that doesn't result in indiscriminately shooting into crowds - even African dictators don't do this any more (very often)
    - Maybe start actually counting the numbers of people killed by police instead of doing everything to hide that number
    - Fire some racists?

    But none of that's going to happen, particularly if no one crushes the unions first.

    All extremely valid points.

    My perception is that most of the bigger western states metros (lol LA) have done a pretty decent job of building the right "diversity" into their forces, and mostly, the racism isn't as much of an issue, perhaps. At least here, the force is pretty representative. That isn't to say there aren't all the other issues (my local force has so much surplus kit locked in the armory, they provide some tac backup to the local FBI, who are headquartered in CA here), but over the rockies? Holy crap. It seems like its all Kop Klan Klubs with maybe a token black police chief for some of the old public jazz hands.

    this is a couple of hours ago by now.

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center considers the UDC as part of the Neo-Confederate movement that began in the early 1980s, which the Center states is "a reactionary conservative ideology that has made inroads into the Republican Party from the political right, and overlaps with the views of white nationalists and other more radical extremist groups."

    In August 2018 their website still stated that ""Slaves, for the most part, were faithful and devoted. Most slaves were usually ready and willing to serve their masters."
    And nothing of any value was lost.

    I look forward to seeing the hand wringing over damaging the hq of white supremacists.
