Yep, the Police can be very brutal in the USA 🇺🇸
More people than nobody do need to see it to believe it—# or it didn't happen. 🙄

# is # and #. When I'm in a more doubtful mood I think of it as a confluence of random events and human nature—Stanford Prison Experiment—that get us to a point that we're at right now, but when I'm more confident I see it as a # # part of the # of # by the # # like # Bros. designed specifically to keep the people in powerin power.

No matter what the driving force is behind our # and # #, it exists.

Seeing-as-how a couple days ago a down-to-Earth but established star like Anna Kendrick has started # about it, maybe you can pass it on to your # type relatives before # starts slandering her as an # # #, or the # / # types try to murder her.

I mean. They couldn’t stop themselves from blatantly escalating things. Even for a few days, even cynically, even for the optics.

There are always folks who deny, justify, and excuse brutality though. Pictures and video recordings have traditionally been ignored. I say traditionally because law enforcement has been murdering unarmed cooperating Black men & women for AT LEAST a decade...

oh it's enough to laugh/cry. that understatement. at least a decade. yeah. just a bit. 🙁

Trevor Speaks Out About the Murder of George Floyd
Trevor Noah, of The Daily Show fame, had dropped the # persona and just talked as #, #, and # to the camera for about 20 minutes. It sounded to me like #. I found it in a few places after first digging it up on # last night. Please make the time to listen to it and pass it on.

Listen at Tune In radio which is embedded here


Its also available at Luminary, and available at Radio (dot) Net, and ... of course ... available on #.

Most people take law enforcement for granted, and by that I mean it's assumed to have always been that way and that it's acceptable. It's well documented how the # formed it's # forces in order to maintain the # institution of # (see also: Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 & of 1850, Encyclopædia Britannica, TIME Magazine and Eastern Kentucky University for starters), but most of us are blissfully unaware of the darker driving truths.

A tidbit that comes out early in this week's # # called #, is that the # # (Bobbies) has a dark past as well.

The culture that forms an entity lingers on long after the people and reasons for forming an institution have died. It takes a lot of energy over generations to clean that garbage legacy culture out of an organization when everybody is willing to remove it. Collectively # are not ready willing or able to remove our sins of # and # the # from policing because a minority of "us" (the wealthy) want it that way, and they can afford to produce a steady stream of propaganda convincing the majority of people beyond their interests into defending indefensible actions that come out of those institutions.

A stark truth that I personally see is that # internally and # # externally are de facto the same thing for the same reasons put into motion by the same people for the same reasons. We have not yet really left #, our # is as big an # as a #.

A Decade Of Watching Black People Die
I don't know how exactly to deal with my white friends lately. I could have the same headspace of ignorance but for a lucky random event that changed my direction towards # about two decades ago. They aren't exposed to the realities of people without power or money. They don't know they should be exposed to those harsh realities. They don't know because of how # has formed and they don't know how it has been # by people with # and #.

A person in my circles asked me what I thought about what's going on in the news lately. He asked because his mind is starting to open, but it bothered me that he didn't ask that question when the Koch instigated and funded armed militia groups were storming State Capital buildings because they wanted hair-cuts and bowling. I didn't resist mentioning that to him. I also had to ask him, "How many people had their necks kneeled on but didn't die?"

I'm not sure I helped guide him closer to knowing. Us # # # people didn't decide to be ignorant, we were cultured into it by design and it self-replicates as religion does by believing lies that make us reject conflicting evidence. "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit." "Yeah, that's a bad neighborhood. Those people don't know how to act civilized." Understanding is shut off. Complex things and environments are reduced to binary "facts". It's an illusion to think any person is different from another person in a meaningful way. Our actions are different because our culture is different, and we all think we are acting the right way, until the day we discover we are wrong and begin to act differently.

Give a sigh and assume the ignorant were victims of a cult when you try to enlighten them with harsh realities.
