A good reporting job, but a sad historical observation is
that perfectly understandable explosive violence to
shameless inhuman conditions of poverty and injustice,
feed the police state and excuse their increased violence.
The sixties saw it and nothing’s changed except to get
worse; and Biden et. al. are not coming forward with economic
programs, or plans to reduce U.S. militarism. Violence scares
people; and Trump, like Nixon will exploit fears for reelection: “law and order.”
As Bernard Shaw said: never wrestle with a pig. You both get
dirty, but the pig likes it.

Well said. The truth is…THE FASCIST POLICE STATE LOVES VIOLENCE!

In Flint, MI and a number of other places, the cops put down their batons and join the protestors. Things stayed very quiet In Grand Rapids, they went with the tear gas and rubber bullets and all hell broke loose… Is there a lesson here someplace?
