I'm talking about police brutality. It can never feel like the protesters are asking for it even when the protesters are "asking for it". Ultimately, what led to these pointless, absolutely futile, inane demonstrations is relenting of power, mostly arms. The other way could lead to civil unrest, a much greater danger to public safety than oppression and opposition.
But. Humans are meant to live freely. Perhaps it truly means that civilians can and should hold personal atomic bombs or at the very least, RPGs.
