[TRIGGER WARNING: DEATH, POLICE BRUTALITY]
Yesterday, another black youth was killed by police in St. Louis, and police immediately mobilized to counter the protests they knew would happen with the now-expected riot gear, tanks, and various other military equipment.
Then they just started arresting random people and firing tear gas into random homes and churches that were not involved in protests at all. Families, kids, and the elderly were exposed to what may have been extra-strength tear gas. You know, the same gas that is illegal to use in the military because it's too dangerous and fucked up. Just shooting that around randomly from tanks.

Over a year since Mike Brown was murdered and police in the area are more brutal than ever. They'll shoot tear gas into random black homes now, they don't give a fuck. The police in this country have failed to improve at all. I think that's enough evidence to fucking tear down the entire concept of police. Disband every department and hire only people of color to replace the fired cops. Make sure a good chunk of them are gay, lesbian, bi, pan, ace, trans, and/or non-binary. White cishet people need not apply.
