get this folks, the police say that on the blocked off street, in the shut down city, in the militarized neighborhood ONE car wanted to and was able to drive between the tanks shoot people, AND ESCAPE. miraculous feat if you ask me. its almost unbelievable.

Anonymous said: My dad is a cop and a good one at that, and it's not fair to him and the other good cops out there to shame them as a whole for the corrupt bunch who spoil it. My dad has saved men, women and children of all races, he has gone above and beyond and you know whats actually really fucked up, he's only technically a cop because he was accused of stealing a gift card, he offered to pay for it, he offered to issue an apology to the misunderstanding to the women, but the pd refused and he is on UNPAID
listen, it’s not that all cops are bad but the majority of them are and you have to take that into consideration while defending the police as a whole because they are much more dangerous to your average citizen than they are helpful
was waiting for this
….open your damn eyes.
"Because capitalism is inherently racist, police departments everywhere serve at the behest of corporate sponsored governments — that is, in protective service of white supremacist private corporate power. As an institution police departments operate as state sanctioned gangs employed to uphold the violent, racist hierarchy of capitalism and, whenever possible, to further the monopoly of power where all violence from/by those higher on the hierarchy upon those lower can be legalized and normalized. Any deviation from this narrative, any counterviolence — or even the threat of force — by those lower on the hierarchy upon those higher is met with brutal repression. This is why cops are always present at protests. It is not to “keep the peace.” It is to protect the private property/interests of corporate power, the owners of US government, and to maintain at all times the explicit reminder of America’s power hierarchy, meaning, inevitably, black and brown people’s brutalization above all others. Such will always be the primary function of police no matter who we elect — Democrat or Republican — so long as the cement between private corporate power and government remains un-fractured. Thus we know, all cops may not be racist, but all cops replicate/enforce white supremacist, capitalist oppression.”
I hope that all the young white children witnessing what is happening in Ferguson - whether they live there or not - take this knowledge of injustice with them into adulthood so that THEY may begin to change the paradigm WRT race in this country, because the onus is not on Black folks, it’s on them. These children literally are the future and I pray these demonstrations are not done in vain.
lol are anarchists seriously fucking over the people in ferguson by using the protests as an excuse to burn shit with impunity and live out their fantasies of throwing molotovs at things? good job treating a violently suppressed protest as a fucking theme park at other people’s expense. another victory for anarchy
This society is going to become more supremely racist when it is apparently not racist. And that’s where it’s moving to at this point. When a white man tells you, “let’s not put race into this,” he is being the most racist at that point.
You can have a society that removes all public expression on racism. You can have a society were people no longer overtly express racial hatred, and racist statements and behavior is outlawed, but you can still have a system that destroys millions and millions of Black people. Colin Powell and others are the signs of that kind of racism where the Black middle class will be sitting in these jobs and positions defending the system.
You must recognize that racism is not an attitude. It is not a feeling of hatred toward another people. You must understand that racism and white supremacy is in the very structures and values of the institutions of the society itself. And until you revolve and change those structures and attitudes and values you will always be under the bottom."
Dr. Amos N. Wilson explaining racism and predicting the future almost twenty years ago (early 90’s).
A complete explanation of my exact sentiments.
And calling out the creators of such a system is not hate. To stop the problem, the source must be recognized, even if the symptoms are spread or reinforced by people of color.

Unlike the beautiful 6-year old Jonbenett Ramsey who received coverage all over the media - every tabloid, newspaper, news channel, talk show, 7-year old Aiyana Stanley was killed by a police officer during a raid while she was sleep and her murder received very little coverage.
Police, searching for a murder suspect, threw a flash grenade through the window of her family’s apartment around midnight. According to Aiyana’s father, it landed on the couch, setting Aiyana on fire. A police officer’s gun then went off, and shot Aiyana in the neck.
Aiyana was asleep on the living room sofa in her family’s apartment when Detroit police, searching for a homicide suspect, burst in and an officer’s gun went off, fatally striking the girl in the neck, family members said.
Her father, 25-year-old Charles Jones, told The Detroit News he had just gone to bed early Sunday after covering his daughter with her favorite blanket when he heard a flash grenade followed by a gunshot. When he rushed into the living room, he said, police forced him to lie on the ground, with his face in his daughter’s blood.
“I’ll never be the same. That’s my only daughter,” Jones told.
We haven’t forgotten about you baby. R.I.P.
We the undersigned Palestinian individuals and groups express our solidarity with the family of Michael Brown, a young unarmed black man gunned down by police on August 9th in Ferguson, Missouri. We wish to express our support and solidarity with the people of Ferguson who have taken their struggle to the street, facing a militarized police occupation.
From our families bleeding in streets of Gaza, Hebron, Jenin, Jerusalem; from the Zionist prisons overflowing with our political prisoners; from our endless refugee camps, ghettos and Bantustans; from our indigenous people living as second-class citizens in what became “Israel” in 1948, and our dislocated diaspora: We send you our commitment to stand with you in your hour of pain and time of struggle against the oppression that continues to target our black brothers and sisters in nearly every aspect of their lives.
We understand your moral outrage. We understand your hurt and anger. We understand your impulse to burn the infrastructure of a racist capitalist system that systematically pushes you to the margins of humanity; we support your right to rebel in the face of injustice.
And we stand with you.
The disregard and disrespect for black bodies and black life is endemic to the white supremacist system that rules the land. Your struggles through the ages have been an inspiration to us as we fight daily for the most basic human dignities in our own homeland against the racist Zionist regime that considers us less human. As we navigate our own struggle against colonialism, ethnoreligious supremacy, capitalism and tyranny, we find inspiration and strength from your struggles and your revolutionary leaders, like Malcolm X, Huey Newton, Kwame Ture, Angela Davis, Fred Hampton, Bobby Seale and others.
We honor the life of Michael Brown, cut short less than a week before he was due to begin university. And we honor the far too many black lives who were killed in similar circumstances, motivated by racism and contempt for black life: John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Tarika Wilson, Malcolm Ferguson, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo, Yvette Smith, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell, Kathryn Johnston, Rekia Boyd and too many others to count.
With a Black Power fist in the air, we salute the people of Ferguson and join in your demands for justice."
