Thanks cops, what with all the other stuff in the news to be mad about I almost forgot that you are all irredeemable bastards who need defunding! Appreciate the reminder 👍

/Also: journalists need to sack up and describe police violence without the bias of erasing one-sidedness. When cops attack a protest, that is not "protesters clashing with police." That is "police attacking protesters."

The police are very dangerous.  They assault people every time they show up.  Let's hope someone does something about them before someone gets hurt.

The asshole NYPD union leader was complaining that the cops get no respect.
Which is due to an atmosphere that they created.  Fark the cops.  Farking pigs.

I'm glad to see more of these stories showing up in the last few days. People seem to have mostly moved on, but literally every day in this country since the protests started, the police have assaulted non-violent protesters somewhere.

In Portland, it's been an almost nightly occurance.

*double facepalm* The NYPD quite obviously doesn't care at all about their public image anymore, and all they want you to do is RESPECT THEIR AUTHORITAH and OBEY OUR COMMANDS!!! Time for the Mayor to disband the NYPD and start over.

Cincinnati just had BLM protest downtown on Sumday.  It IS dwindling but it is still very much alive.

It looks suspiciously like the "mainstream" media was trying to move people along to the next issue.

They managed to have the entire country worked into a frenzy over the details of e-mail servers and proper handling of classified information, but after ~10 days of dramatic high action video footage of police rioting and attacking protestors it went stale? No way. This is the wizard of oz screaming at us to not look behind the curtain.

Well they had to do something for the police to act on them. Of course for a site like Buzzfeed, it will leave that stuff out. This couldn't be unprovoked. Don't worry, most of you want no police and you will notice how dangerous some of these places will get.

Clashing or just doing their part to do a reenactment of the Stonewall Riots?  I am going with Historicsl Reenactment, you libs just did not know that was going on because you all are ignorant of history after pulling all the statues down.

If you start from the assumption that the police can do no wrong, then it seems obvious that the police can do no wrong. Duh, lib.

yeah, you're probably right.

And and other thing I've noticed is that a lot of middle-aged and older white male pundits, when they do bother to write about the protests, tend to focus almost exclusively on how offensive they find the aesthetics of the protests or how pointless they are. Basically, a lot of articles whose thesis is either "These protests are the sign of a coming cultural revolution!" or "These kids just don't know what they want, so all of this is a waste of time!"

I think this is more organic as a lot of people spouting this line are independent or work for left-wing independent organizations. It seems more like the "olds" not getting what is going on and not being very interested in finding out.

It's because they are scared, they have been brainwashed their entire lives by propaganda and lies. They don't want to know the truth, and you will see them tightly embrace full on fascism before allowing change. Zappa was right, they're starting to pull the tables and chairs out of the way.

I don't think these folks are quite picking up what you're putting down, and you are 100% right. There is literally a clear path of this behavior coming out of Europe for centuries. If they had their way and every last POC was eliminated from America they'd just start turning on those not "white" enough like they did before.

Aye, the black gays are all upset with the white gays, saying they have turned these parades into celebrations instead of protests.
So they got those peace loving folks from BLM involved in this one.  Then they went around vandalizing police cars, and pepper spraying and sucker punching the cops.  Who responded in kind.  Deliberate provocation to produce the end result, a news report by a sypathetic yellow journalist that omits the facts and paints the cops in the worst way possible.

And then the fark progressives have a circle jerk over it.  The end.

Yes, and no.  The need for risk mitigation is weighed against the underlying drivers of the risk.  This is why it made sense to close Hot Topic and Sally's Salon,but leave Safeway open.  This is why no one is going to complain if they see an unmasked person running to pull a person from a burning car, but will comment if they see someone unmasked going to up to people in the park.

People here have questioned the underlying value drivers of parties, trips to the beach, restaurant dining, and in-person church services.  Others have questioned the value drivers of protests against police brutality and killings. 

Whether or not you think the risks are justified are going to depend on your value system.  Draw your own conclusions about a person from the values they demonstrate.

CORRECT.

I'm not going to pretend there aren't instances when protesters seek out confrontation or some splinter group goes too far and has to be reeled in. Of course it happens.

But time and again we're seeing instances of people doing nothing more than standing together get attacked, straight-up attacked, by police playing pretend soldier. Dozens of documented cases at this point over the last few weeks. There is that one person on Twitter who has been compiling them into a Twitter thread, and it's horrifying.

These aren't clashes, they are attacks.

Some departments are making some symbolic sacrifices by charging this officer or that with a crime here and there, but they're just that: symbolic.

As long as departments are engaging in these quasi-military tactics and using them without provocation against peaceful protesters, the incidents shouldn't be called anything but what they are: ATTACKS.

There was supposed to be a 50th anniversary pride march in London last week, led by 12 of the surviving (age and the AIDS years have taken their toll) original marchers. Unfortunately it was hijacked by a bunch of white kids in the name of "Black Trans Lives Matter". Which of course they do, but it really was a completely inappropriate time to try to divert attention from the pioneers of gay liberation.

How about you can do that where you live, and I'll keep the cops that keep the methheads from invading my home and taking my stuff and/or life.  Also, when did vigilante justice become acceptable to the left?  If a bunch of white guys in Texas "took the law into their own hands", even nonviolently, there would be a shiatstorm thread of epic proportions here.

The notion that you're somehow entitled to have the police protect "your stuff" just shows how out of touch you are with your white privilege.

You wouldn't have "your stuff" if it wasn't built on the backs of the oppressed.  It's not "your stuff", you were just lucky enough to win the crotch & pigment lottery, so here you are.

Your post needs a MAGA hat....
