  •  FYI, when I say "condemn the police" (1+ / 0-)

    I don't mean condemn the police as individuals, I mean condemn them as an institution. I know you won't do that either, but I want that to be clear. I don't think that every single police officer is a horrible person, I do think that they contribute to a racist and corrupt system in such a way that racism, sexism, etc. is continued.

    And there is a difference between doing something that will attract other people and doing something just because it will attract other people. Propaganda of the deed is not PR. Propaganda of the deed is doing, not pretending.

      and yes I'm not going to condemn them as an institution either. The police are not perfect but as an institution it's the best choice we have.

      As to the rest I just simply don't see a distinction there, sorry. To me there's nothing 'pretending' about being willing to take a baton to the face or being sprayed with a fire hose or taking a less then lethal plastic bullet or bean bag round. In point of fact I think that it's easier to destroy then it is to endure.

      I think we've about exhausted the topic or at least I think I have.

      You have a good day.
