I just want a relationship where we just cuddle, kiss, watch movies, are best friends, but still have lives.
Like not text 24/7, not have to hang out every other day.
Basically a best friend I can makeout with would be nice.
State and county Police are accompanying and marching WITH protesters in Ferguson. THESE are good cops.
They’re not good cops. They realized that upping the ante only worked in the protestors’ favor and led to large protests around the country. Now they’re pacifying the protestors in hopes that they’ll eventually stop protesting and go home.
It’s no different than when the army was called into Ludlow to break up the fighting between the Colorado National Guard and the coal miners during the early 20th century. The National Guard was shooting strikers, burning their children alive and all kinds of horrible things. The Governor and President let it continue until the miners armed themselves and launched a violent campaign in retaliation, which endangered big capital. At that point the President sent in the army to “bring peace” to the region. Things went back to normal, workers continued being exploited, and justice was never found for most of the human rights violations that occurred. The soldiers who ended the conflict weren’t good, they were conniving backstabbers.
This is the exact same thing, just a repeat of history. The establishment doesn’t want things to escalate in Ferguson and elsewhere, becoming a threat to its stability or existence. The establishment doesn’t care about Michael Brown or any other Black person who’s been killed without justification. They just want the dissidence to cease and Black victims of police brutality to be forgotten.
If Capt. Johnson cared about police brutality he would defect and inform the world of the corruption and abuse that goes in in the police force. Instead he panders to the system and actively works to preserve a white supremacist power structure every day of his life.
Human history is nothing but repeating patterns. An inch of change costs a mile of war. We’ll never get a radical reform without a radical revolution.
Bring it on.
Just read up on the national guard/miner story above to make sure it was legit. Unfortunately it was and and very ugly. Old habits sure die hard.
Solid little Friday night. #menzingers #napavalley
