Oh my gosh, it's so sad, that police chief crying about that poor child. I mean, his story sounds odd because protestors have nothing against fire departments, not a word one against firemen of any kind, but there's no reason for the chief of police to lie, that would make the protestors look bad. Remember, the police will lie to your fucking face and not think twice about it. The news will reinforce it because poor black people standing up and pushing against the classes creates instability. The police will enforce the status quo, and the media will help them do it. Malcolm X once said "the media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent.” This chief will have his officers firing rubber bullets and tear gas canisters at peaceful protestors again very soon, and he might have a few cops kneel during the daylight hours long enough to snap a few shots for the press. I expect this pacifies people like you, and also anyone who wants to go back to normal and pretend none of this was ever necessary, that the only thing to worry about was the upcoming election. Ssshhh. Go to sleep. Your democracy is fine. It's not really black people angry at centuries of systemic abuse, it's outside agitators. They're the real threat.
