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 #USA formed it's #Police forces in order to maintain the #sinful institution of #Slavery (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 #FAIR #Podcast called #CounterSpin, is that the #Brittish #PD (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 #Americans are not ready willing or able to remove our sins of #Racism and #Opressing the #Poor 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 #Policing internally and #Military #Occupations 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 #Feudalism, our #democracy is as big an #illusion as a #video-game.

I saw @Lisa Stranger post the earliest "rumors" (minimally substantiated facts) of this recently. This morning I finally saw "Credible" (well-substantiated) sources getting on the story, like the embedded podcast and the attached web page below.

The linked webpage below has embedded video that was initially live-streamed showing early on that it WAS NOT the protesters causing damage. The #UmbrellaMan does seem like a cop and his only alibi is other police who were all dressed in murky black clothing amidst the chaos.

Twitter, has postings from journalists indicating that the #Minnesota #PD went on a tire slashing bender. See the @AndrewKimmel posting and his substantiation of the claim. Other's on Twitter have documented public tire slashing and from different angles at the same time and place. Still others on Twitter are making connections to the US Govt. Agencies investigating the true nature of the people damaging property.

Still, the best story to read is that linked webpage at the bottom of my microblog post here. They discuss Right-wing extremists and #accelerationists in the latter half. That's some sick stuff festering in our society.
