(Twitter)   There were few arrests or looting during the demonstrations in Kansas City yesterday. Wonder why? Maybe because the police and protesters were on the same side   (twitter.com) divider line

no arrests, other than the 5 arrests

If the police are not accountable to a civilian authority, they are accountable to no one.  They're not going to police themselves, you know.

Weaning them off of their nasty theft habit would be a good start.

All the Serpicos need to rise up NOW and do their thing.

Many police and rioters are on the same side in MN, too.

/Some of those that work forces are the same who burn crosses

They should have been building a railroad, but instead they were jumping around

Is there any context for this photo? For all I know there's a dude getting choked out on the ground below them, and they're holding the the guy's sign as a trophy.

They're busy tending to their apartment menageries.

The police were sympathetic in Dallas during the Alton Sterling protests in 2016.
Then Micah X happened.

Not saying KC police are wrong, just that correlation does not equal causation.

Well, that and all of the red hatters went up to Minnesota to riot and loot.  The one in Santa Fe was peaceful because red hatters hate the altitude and tend to stay away.  Hard for those mouth breathers to breath in the high mountains

It's nice to see that the police won't stand.
Won't stand.
Won't stand brutality.

We need to see what was happening just before this photo was taken before making any conclusions.

Their police force probably isn't lead by a white nationalist who hires and protects neo nazis in the ranks.

I guess at least -some- police departments took their warnings from... let's see... 4 plus 10... fully 14 years ago seriously.

Despite the screeching howling from Republicans that buried this report, because we all know exactly effing why

Also cops are definitely out in battle rattle at the Plaza.  Lotta boarded up storefronts already.  Can't determine crowd size from horizontal camera shots yet.

Your post kind of proves your point from the other direction. It wasn't Dallas PD's sympathy that led to the shootings.

Any credible source to this? Other than "there's a guy with an umbrella so he must be a maga supporter because umbrellas are the new dog whistle hey there's a guy with an umbrella let's beat the shiat out of him"

On a serious note: Around 41 million people have lost their jobs in the last few weeks.

Normally a lot of folks have jobs they need to go to which puts pressure on protestors fairly quickly. This time around... there's a LOT of folks with free time to protest than I think has ever been the case in the US.

If you had to deal with rush hour traffic on the 405, you'd make sure you'd be done rioting by 4, 4:15 at the latest.

Marcus Aurelius: If the police are not accountable to a civilian authority, they are accountable to no one.  They're not going to police themselves, you know.


Here's the difference between most city police departments, and most county sheriff's deputies.
County sheriff's are DIRECTLY accountable to the people, via the election process.  All deputies
(at least where I am from) serve at "the pleasure of the sheriff".  If a sheriff isn't doing his job, the
way the  people want, they will elect a different person, at the next election.
Now, with most city police, the chief is not directly accountable to the citizens.  The chief is typically
appointed, by the mayor & city council.  Yes, the mayor & city council can be replaced, but, usually
when an election rolls around, only a few city council change, or just the mayor changes, making it
harder to replace a sitting police chief.  Plus, the "legal eagles" of most city hall government bureaucrats
make it hard for them to effectively do their jobs, not to mention the police unions that will fight to keep
an officer, that is "a bully".

Old people, they want to get to the diner for the early bird 4:30 supper special.

300-500 in the Plaza, I'd say.  Mayor is on site, talking to protesters.  Encourages protestors to not 'act the fool'.
