from the river to the sea, you fucking cowards
For USians, this is akin to making a solidarity statement with George Floyd protesters saying "we have nothing to lose but our chains," then retracting just that phrase because a bunch of actual cops hector you about the quote being made famous by Assata Shakur.

Pure cowardice.
If you don't support the inverse of the apartheid regime, I don't know if you can actually say you do "stand in solidarity" with Palestinians? Not my call to make, but it seems obviously antithetical to liberation to me.

The for-some-reason unnamed, one-sided source of this story coming out of Los Angeles... Image
I don't know what happened based on the interestingly-edited videos that conveniently all begin en media res, but I did some digging when I started seeing these reports this morning to try to parse how this story was placed in local news and now RawStory.
2017 | "The Israeli-American Coalition for Action... is the lobbying arm of the Israeli-American Coalition, which is backed by wealthy anti-Palestinian donors Adam Milstein and Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson." electronicintifada.net/blogs/charlott…

CN: police violence, car attack, vehicle attack, mass casualty event, pigs

Different angle on the lethal use of force in Tacoma last night that shows sirens were not engaged at all.
The pig sounded the flat horn once or twice before attempting to murder everyone in his path over fear of a window, but that is not a "siren" in popular understanding - as the police PIO lied about here:
Anyway, BREAKING! #Copslie.
