Just behold all the resources we’ve given police. Look at all that military gear, enough to fight a civil war with citizens. And just remember, all the while, the nurses who had to resort to trash bags for want of facemasks and gowns.

  • @fmanjoo Dr. William Berber spoke earlier tonight on CNN. Paraphrasing: "Look at all the effort that's gone into rounding up looters tonight. Imagine what it would be like if the same effort were put into ending police brutality."

  • @fmanjoo I remember reading somewhere that the militarization of our police began when America went down the "War on Drugs" path. Police Depts got lots of funding for military style weapons etc. I wonder: how are we ever going to be able to reverse this path? The police seem to love it

  • @fmanjoo @chemparrot And know why? Bc the military-industrial complex sheds and profits off its waste in order to upgrade for profit, while the medical-industrial complex is not even a thing here because the hawkish profiteering model doesn’t align with masks and gowns and stuff like that.
