5 Examples Of The US Govt Treating BlackLivesMatter Movement Like A...

AFRICANGLOBE - Once again, tactics and legal allowances created in the name of “stopping terrorism” are being used, without any oversight or public debate, on entirely peaceful domestic activism.

AFRICANGLOBE - The NYPD's “slowdown strike” has unwittingly placed the police in an awkward position: with arrest rates plummeting and no significant harm done to public safety, the department may soon find itself having disproven the value of Broken Windows policing polices that #BlackLivesMatter protesters have been calling for an end to all along.

The NYPD’s Mini-Rebellion, And The True Face Of American Fascism

AFRICANGLOBE - There’s no doubt that the NYPD crisis has disturbing implications on various levels.

NYPD Declares “We Are At War” After Death Of Two Cops

AFRICANGLOBE - To Patrick Lynch, a cop’s killing is unacceptable. But to Patrick Lynch (and to too many white people), a cop acting as judge, jury and executioner is somehow acceptable.

The fear inside that police union boss is not just about the actual violence which may befall his members; it’s a fear that the NYPD is in danger of losing its monopoly on the threat of violence.
