@eldrichtTerror for 99% of what cops do what you really want is a social worker or a crossing guard or a free car repair. we could have on call public security without armed racists patrolling the streets 24/7 & locking people up in labor camps.
For the first time in my life, I'm seeing accurate headlines reporting on police violence: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/05/george-floyd-protests-police-violence.html

"Caught on camera, police explode in rage and violence across the US."
I believe you can upload footage of the current police brutality to this folder https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1FvAoAcIFH_sjbTYm71cZjJKVXaFTkyP4
Police are state-sanctioned gangs https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_of_the_day_(police)
today, the police ran over a semi-peaceful crowd (https://www.facebook.com/juliacaldwell1/posts/10217115816667913) and maced the city council (see below)
mind you these were peaceful.
after this i dont wanna hear any shit from you lib guys gatekeeping how protests work, especially when youre not in it to begin with. no matter if youre peaceful or not, they will harm you and possibly kill you. this is not the fucking time for that shit.
no justice, no peace. fucking remember that until its etched into your brain
Sincere question: for all the pearl-clutching there's been over "looting," have there actually been documented cases of people using this protest as an excuse to steal televisions and shit? I've seen a lot of video of peaceful protesters getting pepper sprayed and precisely zero photos of looters and arsonists.

To my surprise, The Hand You're Dealt was featured as the Free PDF of the Week in yesterday's DM's Guild newsletter! 😮 It's driven a ton of downloads and enough people have paid for a copy that it might soon become a copper bestseller!

There's this mountain high in the Caucasus where Prometheus lies chained. Once every day, a little bird comes, descends upon him, and devours his liver. By night, his liver grows again, so the bird can return the next day and repeat the cycle again, over and over, every day, for all of eternity. You might think that's a hell of a long time. Personally, I think that's a hell of a bird.
