Hey! Fuck the police! Here’s some good news!
+ LOL remember Pride? What are you doing this year?
+ Mariame Kaba writes so eloquently. Send this to your colleagues/parents/the mommy bloggers you secretly follow when they say “they don’t really mean abolish the police!”
The philosophy undergirding these reforms is that more rules will mean less violence. But police officers break rules all the time. Look what has happened over the past few weeks — police officers slashing tires, shoving old men on camera, and arresting and injuring journalists and protesters. These officers are not worried about repercussions any more than Daniel Pantaleo, the former New York City police officer whose chokehold led to Eric Garner’s death; he waved to a camera filming the incident. He knew that the police union would back him up and he was right. He stayed on the job for five more years.
