Default Fed-up Rising; This is America

While there have been protests the last couple of days at the white house and National Mall, only two blocks from my house, I've avoided going. Even though I feel a responsibility to. But i'm more afraid of COVID-19.

Back in my hometown last night white people showed up at a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest and started attacking cops, destroying property and lighting fires. Despite two days of peaceful protests led by people of color the local news reported that BLM protestors turned violent.

This is America:

I have friends who were at rallies yesterday in half a dozen States and every one of them posted pics and comments to social media since then detailing how white people showed up late in the protest to start fighting with police and destroying property.

I know two people who were beaten and pepper sprayed by cops yesterday.

Here in DC they brought in National Guard soldiers by the truckload. Soldiers were positioned on the street in front of my building last night.

This Isn’t a Few Bad Apples. The Police Are Rotten to the Core.

Quote:
People in Michigan protesting Floyd’s murder and centuries of state-backed violence against black folks were met with chemical munitions liberally fired off by police. What a difference from how the cops behaved one month ago, when gun-toting white folks who stormed the Michigan statehouse because they wanted haircuts weren’t given so much as a citation.

Cops are rioting all over this country right now, again using militarized police violence to retaliate against people for daring to decry militarized police violence, and then suggesting the response is how the violence all began. These brutalities by police in recent weeks—the Floyd lynching, the murder of Breona Taylor, the Tony McDade killing, and now the rubber bullets, teargas, batons, fists and vehicular assaults—are both inhumane and familiar.

But in all seriousness, actual tangible laws have to change in order to stop police abuses of power (that anyone can fall victim to, but ethnic minorities are disproportionately targeted by). Even when cops are suspended or fired, it's not rare for them to be rehired by a neighbouring county and given back pay as soon as the news cycle forgets about them and the public scrutiny is off. And many won't even get to the point where there jobs are lost, either, much less get criminal convictions for what's literally murder.

...or hired by private security companies for even more money than they were making as police officers.

I don't necessarily think we should kill all white people, but I do think we should cull white babies

Two acquaintances were rubber bulleted (that's a verb) in Chicago, both media.

My beloved neighbor in Chicago, homicide detective, is put on disciplinary leave after a cop recognised her at a protest (she was off duty).
Great to see that disciplinary measures can be taken really fast!

Trump is too busy tweeting fascist stuff to leave the White House.

You know where Trump was Friday night when he was tweeting about vicious dogs and secret service agents? Hiding in a hole.

As protesters converged on the White House on Friday, the “Secret Service agents abruptly rushed the president to the underground bunker used in the past during terrorist attacks,” the Times reported.

The only people I saw at the protest yesterday spraying graffiti and starting fires were crusty whites dressed liked ninjas and/or carrying skateboards.

They deployed the National Guard again tonight in DC. Truck loads of them a couple blocks form my house.

Drove through Georgetown earlier. All the bougie shops had crews trying to board up the windows.

I hope trump has to stay in that basement bunker till January 21.
