  •  The police were created as a force of oppression (10+ / 0-)

    They have always been intent on imposing "order", which really means keeping the working class in line. In the US that means enforcing racism, legal or otherwise. The police have always worked for the bosses, and the bosses have always employed paramilitary thugs to stomp the working class.

    In Ludlow, the centennial of which was mostly ignored here this year despite being entirely to the point of our current troubles. A militarized police force used an armored car with a machine gun to shoot down miners after lighting their tents on fire. This is the proud tradition of today's police.

    Fuck them all. They're all out there enforcing a racist, classist, sexist system, whether they're knowingly doing it is beside the point to me. They're the enemy.

    No War but Class War
