Little Post of Horrors

So there are people all up in this joint defending looting as an appropriate reaction to police violence and you know what, I'd rather learn about the shoplifting community again.

That's really... really messed up, and really sad. :/

All that does is lead to MORE violence from cops whose nerves are frayed and who are paranoid about getting attacked or whatever because of all the looting and violence, etc. It's an awful, dangerous cycle.

Adding tragedy to tragedy. :(

Thank you for saying this, because I was starting to lose my mind in that echo chamber. It's brain-numbing after a while. Especially that rhetoric of "oh, so you care more about property than human life?" I don't know how to iterate that this may not be causing death, but it's still hurting people, and I really don't see how raising awareness through violence causes positive change.

It's all over tumblr too. I hate the implication that because you think looting is wrong that means you're racist or support when white people do it after a game. No. I think it's wrong any time. And stupid and if those are the people you want supporting your cause then you should rethink that.
