america-wakiewakie: "The most dangerous gang in town is the police department, and the real source of organized crime is the government itself. Understand that alone, and you will *overstand that the entire crime fighting campaign of the government is a complete fraud, and a cover for racism and political domination." — Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin "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." — Gangs of the State: Police Departments & the Hierarchy of Power | AmericaWakieWakie
queertodaygonetomorrow: atane: wristxrocket: dear-drifter: lilightfoot: Remember. his life was totally in danger. ^^^^ True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/23/pepper-spray-cop-settlement_n_4152147.html
