Police Response Slowed. The Community Stepped In. -bloomberg.com

In Minneapolis this summer, 911 response times increased as officers left the force. Instead of asking for more police, some residents reimagined public safety for themselves.

Trump Backers Block Highways as Election Tensions Play Out in the Streets
Law enforcement authorities are increasingly worried, not just about what they have already seen, but also about what has been threatened, especially online.

Yeah, in the 60s both major parties wanted to send your white asses to Vietnam along with the black men. Nothing like it getting personal to motivate people.

Both fascism, and anti-fascism ideologies welcome violence, not only when it comes to activism. Both ideologies are fascist, from their very core. 
Similar goes for war and anti-war ideologies. Both neglect the concept of peace

Peaceful protesters!

For those interested in a factual read about Antifa.   

If there's anyone left who still defends Antifa, read this.

For those who may be interested regarding the recent shopping spree going on in Philly over a police shooting ...

I was made aware of this little bit of relevant info earlier today ... The reason that TASERS were not used is because the Philly police have very few if any due to budget cuts.  All's they have is their guns.  I am sure that someone here will correct me if this is wrong.

So much for defunding the police.  You can't have it both ways.
 
Sell the bullets and buy tasers. Problem solved.

 

it seems that snarky response is quite valid.
Philly is another situation that reveals how poor training is failing officers,
and more significantly the public
too many cops with guns, and lacking proper training in how to deal with stressful situations
why not develop a better taser, for most cops to carry
and  reserve guns for highly trained officers
i believe i read somewhere that about 90% of what an office does is respond,
after a crime has occurred.
