ACAB! Their actions Speak for Themselves: @cops_are_terrorists

Before I moved to Los Angeles, I didn’t know what it was like to live in a police state. Once I moved there, I realized that it’s a city where people are used to the constant helicopter flyovers, violent pullovers, sirens ringing out 24 hours a day, cruisers speeding down their residential streets, and cops who pull out their weapons just to approach you. Many Americans don’t see this kind of behaviour from their police as wrong. The mantra of cops being “heroes,” a kind of domestic military fighting crime on their behalf, is so ingrained into American imperial doublespeak that there’s actually a debate around whether cops should be able to shoot unarmed civilians on sight. Because that civilian pissed them off or questioned their authority or looked like they were scared and about to run. It’s not normal. And while I know this happens in a lot of countries, there are also many places in the world where cops aren’t given the green light to terrorize citizens in this way.

Because yes, in America @cops_are_terrorists, and this account does a great job of collecting the evidence. Watching how these cops behave, I see immense fragility. I see anger issues, pettiness, and rage. I see low vibrational, underdeveloped people who are given power by the state to snap at any perceived slight from the public and weapons to back it up. And I see a coordinated, state-sanction terror campaign designed to keep Americans living in fear and to discourage them from exercising their right to fight back against despotic governance. It’s not freedom or protection. It’s pathetic and a form of mental and emotional imprisonment that so many Americans don’t realize they’re living in. We would all be so much better off with a system focused on rehabilitation, recovery, therapy, education, health, and income subsidy instead of allowing inequality to flourish and using uniformed thugs to enforce it.

Saw this video early today. This was in Portland; a DHS officer shoots his tear gas blower DIRECTLY at a protester whose on his knees with his hands up. It’s absolutely ridiculous and if this happened overseas it would be considered a war crime. Fuck the police and fuck the state, we must fight to free the people. 🚔🚓 #PoliceBrutality #PoliceReform #PoliceBrutalityAwareness #PoliceThePolice #DefundThePolice #PoliceMisconduct #PoliceCorruption #PoliceReport #LawEnforcement #Cop #Cops #Police #PoliceOfficers #PoliceOfficer #BlackLivesMatter #BlueLivesMatter #ProtectAndServe #ToProtectAndToServe #ToProtectAndServe #KillerCops #ServeAndProtect #ToServeAndProtect #SurvivingAmericasPolice #ExcessiveForce #KillerCop #PowerTrip #RoidRage

Just in from today in Webster, NY – a suburb of Rochester. There was a BLM demonstration on the sidewalk, as you can clearly see, and these fucking PIGS rolled up on them and arrested people – violating their constitutional rights. Absolutely disgusting.

This building in Berlin has been a famous vacant building and a safe space for leftists and all people’s outside the traditional gender norm. The police fucking stormed it and arrested dozens while battling in the streets. It was good to see the response and pushback tho, lets hope they keep this up and take back their building. #CopsAreTerrorists 🚔🚓 #PoliceBrutality #PoliceReform #PoliceBrutalityAwareness #PoliceThePolice #DefundThePolice #PoliceMisconduct #PoliceCorruption #PoliceReport #LawEnforcement #Cop #Cops #Police #PoliceOfficers #PoliceOfficer #BlackLivesMatter #BlueLivesMatter #ProtectAndServe #ToProtectAndToServe #ToProtectAndServe #KillerCops #serveandprotect #SurvivingAmericasPolice #ExcessiveForce #KillerCop #PowerTrip #RoidRage

The lawyers for the 7 Rochester PD officers who are under investigation are claiming Officer Mark Vaughn did not break procedure when murdering Daniel Prude. As you can see – this is a fucking lie. The bottom is the proper procedure, the top is what actually happened. These sick fucks are equating a gentle head immobilization technique with doing a fucking pushup on someone head. Disgusting. #CopsAreTerrorists #ACAB #BLM #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorge #JusticeGeorgeFloyd #JusticeForDanielPrude #DefundThePolice #RochesterNY #GeorgeFloyd #ElijahMcClain #BreonnaTaylor #BlackPower #GeorgeFloydProtests #Justice #BlackoutTuesday #KillYourMasters #BuffaloNY #NoJusticeNoPeace #WhoseStreetsOurStreets #NYPD #Lancaster #Portland #PortlandProtests #BlueLivesMurder
