From the May Day parade yesterday.
Shortly after this I got yelled at by a officer of the law who told me I needed to be “in the march or out of it”. I stepped back and he said “THAT’S NOT OUT” I asked him where out was and he pointed to the far edge of the sidewalk. I took one more step back and apparently that was good enough and he moved on. Between that brief interaction and Hipster Cop yelling at people to turn the music down in NYC I think the cops were on “high alert”. I would imagine the bombing attempt in Cleveland and the idiot ‘anarchists’ destroying businesses in Seattle had something to do with it.
In any case - Anarchist kids - by destroying local businesses and trying to fight with cops you’re not “sticking it” to the corporations. You’re sticking it to other people who are trying to make ends meet in a difficult time. Police - hearts and minds, guys. Hearts and minds… don’t forget you’re supposed to serve and protect us, cause we’re your sons, daughters, brothers, sisters and parents.
