Oakland's General Strike

I am always shocked and dismayed when I hear of police brutality. These are people we are supposed to be able to trust with our lives and then we see videos of them bludgeoning people unnecessarily on the side of the road. I know they have high stress jobs and emotions and testosterone are running high sometimes but still....

Lawless, I couldn't agree more. They're supposed to protect the citizenry. Not beat on us. Or kill us.
