If citizens protesting system abuse are NOT DRESSED TO KILL,
Why are police DRESSED TO KILL?
If protestors are there to PEACEFULLY protest system abuse,
Why does the policing system respond by setting up for and dressing for additional abuse? Aren't predetermined violent expectations self-fulfilling?
If the policing system is abusing citizens,
Who/what are they protecting? Those who own the system? Those who fear losing control of the system? Those who condone greater abuse of those who dare to protest their abuse?
This reminds me of Pinkerton Detectives or National Guardsmen shoting workers for striking for better working conditions in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This reminds me of slave owners lashing their "property" for unacceptable performance.
These abusive authoritarian systems of old are still with us.
Is 2020 the time for significant change? I hope so.
