Brianna Grier, a 28-year-old mother of two with schizophrenia, was killed by police in Sparta, GA in July when police *claim* to have accidentally left the cruiser she was being transported in completely open and she "fell" out. Briana Grier smiling broadly, happy and alive before she was

This is the one and only correct way to film a demonstration. Not only was the technique (film cops, not protesters) perfect, the result allows us to enjoy the footage of petrified pigs pelted with debris guilt-free for years to come.

I just witnessed an unconscious woman being raped at the corner of Toulouse & Royal in New Orleans. Two @NOPDNews officers drove by yet ignored the situation. I called 911 and flagged down a third officer. The officer chose not respond and maintained his place on the next corner.
When I made contact with the woman she was pulseless. As I pulled her into a flat position to begin CPR she regained a pulse and became agitated. Two @NOPDNews officers responded and refused to administer Narcan despite my insistence & stating I am an ER Respiratory Therapist.
The police officers further stated that they needed the (unconscious) woman to state herself that she was being raped despite more than a dozen bystanders reporting the rape and the victim being physically unable to remember the details of the assault against her.

In light of the recent teen boy fiasco, would you like another cop story for your #ACAB file? I have one! At one point in my cop career I was trying to get involved with an Internet Crimes Against Children task force. Family has history with CSA so it's a topic close to me. 1/?
Anyway, this task force uses techno wizardry to find abusive images of children online, trace who is trading them, and do raids and stuff. As part of looking into it, I shadowed a sex crimes detective for an afternoon as he followed up on cases. Depressing day! Awful day! 2/
At one point, we end up at a high school. A 15yo girl had sent lewds to her 15yo boyfriend, he sent them to his friends, and they got printed out and pasted around the school. Police were called, whole big thing. Because technically, that's child p* being distributed! 3/

This is why we need to #ProtectBlackWomen on top of normalizing being #NeurodivergentWhileBlack. I feel like this is a prime example of #ApartmentBuildingAaron weaponizing the police as a threat. We all know #ACAB 💁🏾‍♀️ Image
“The issue is even more intense for Black women, who struggle against stereotypes and are seen as angry or threatening when we try to stand up for ourselves and our sisters. There’s not much room for passionate advocacy if you are a Black woman.”- Megan There Stallion 🙌🏾✊🏾 Image
Bruh, #ApartmentAaron threatened to call the cops on you for “trespassing,” got corrected by his boss, and still didn't apologize!? Told you to “stop crying” and be a “big girl”? Wtf? & how does one outgrow racism? 💁🏾‍♀️ #BlackWomensTearsMatter #IATPOS Image

Miau. En Jalisco, se cumplen dos años de la represión de @EnriqueAlfaroR contra jóvenes manifestándose x el asesinato de Giovanni por parte de policías.

La policía de Alfaro, vestidos de civiles y en camionetas comunes (sin placas de policía, vean la foto de abajo a la derecha), Image
...golpearon, "levantaron" y desaparecieron forzadamente a decenas de jóvenes que iban a manifestarse o, en el caso de algunxs, que sólo iban caminando.

Fueron liberando a ixs jóvenes con el paso
de las horas y ante indignación pública. Image
Por estos actos de desaparición forzada por parte del Estado, ningún policía pisó la cárcel. Ni nadie más de la línea de mando, ni Alfaro.

No hay justicia para Giovanni ni para lxs víctimas del Estado represor de Alfaro.

¡Exigimos justicia! Image

In October of 2021, Connor Dery, 25, was arrested after multiple attacks he had made on 4 people in the downtown area with a machete. He was charged with aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon in connection with the incidents.

All 4 victims survived. Michael Richards was one of those attacked, who sustained severe life threatening injuries to his skull, a brain bleed, a broken jaw and more.

Of course, this matter did not receive much attention because.. he is the son of a Calgary Police officer.

Uvalde spent 40% of their city budget on police, who were lobbying for even more, and when thrust into a situation they were SPECIFICALLY trained and armed for, in a school they had SPECIFICALLY prepared for a shooter scenario, they "contained" the shooter in a classroom for an…

The uprising in Iran dubbed "The Uprising of Hungry" is still ongoing and has spread to many more cities and provinces.

With "air pollution" as the excuse, they closed Tehran down.
The internet of Golestan & Bushehr provinces has been shut down.

Every single time I talk to a Thin Blue Line supporter about why I believe #ACAB they assume I don’t know many cops or much about policing or I’ve had a bad experience and generalized it.

This is very incorrect.

I am the grandchild of a Chief Superintendent of the Ontario Provincial Police. I grew up in a cop loving #BackTheBlue family. I was taught cops are heroes, doing dangerous work. In fact, my grandpa encouraged me to report cops who weren’t doing right, even just speeding.

I’m married to the grandchild of a chief detective of the Ottawa Police Service. He also grew up in a cop revering family. His cousin is currently a police officer.

So, an unelected former RCMP officer, Wayne Rideout, reversed the decision of an elected City Council to reduce the VPD budget and the Cop Union, and other right wing bootlickers are celebrating the decision.

Of course Rideout has the full support of his boss, Mike Farnworth.
At the end of the day, the only proven way to abolish the police is to basically encourage people to do LITERALLY ANYTHING ELSE instead. The attrition means that police forces will atrophy, and while the people who remain are ultra-shitty, they're fucking cops anyway and #ACAB.
But anyway, @TheTyee had a good piece of the bureaucrat that overrode Vancouver 's decision to reduce the police budget and why this is wrong.…

As the rhetoric of police intervention ramps up, it's important to remember that the police used this situation to expand their powers so that, when Indigenous/BLM comes in to protest, they can shut it down immediately /1
The police have successfully pressured the Ford government to begin passing and implementing 'Essential Infrastructure Bills' which work to protect capital, not citizens /2
DoFo said himself that he is going to use the emergency declaration to immediately pass these bills while planning on maintaining them after this situation is resolved, whatever that looks like /3
