Scenes of sorrow spread across the US. Football teams apologize. Cops march with demonstrators. Democratic Party politicians call for “structural change” in police departments.
Some of these are sincere. Others are crocodile tears shed in hopes that people will be pacified with assurances that turn out to be vague rhetoric devoid of meaning or else empty promises that will never be fulfilled. Yet, there are changes that would cost little, could happen quickly, and be reminders to future generations of what happened in 2020.

When videos of controversial police encounters generate headlines, there’s an important figure in the story that we rarely hear about – the person filming.
I couldn’t care less if the Crispus Attucks of the present uprising was a crack/coke/meth head, a career criminal, or a total scumbag. In fact, I think it’s hilarious. I don’t care if Derek Chauvin had 100 good citizen awards. That’s not the point. I’ve always said that in order to successfully resist the state, there has to be total solidarity among enemies of the state, from the highest to the lowest, from peaceful, clean-cult Mormon missionaries to death row inmates. Instead of “Vote Blue, No Matter Who” it should be “Resist the State, No Matter Who.”

Protests raged across America on Friday on a brutal night in cities where people gathered to grieve and demand justice for George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody. Demonstrations that began peacefully turned chaotic and dangerous as the night wore on. They resulted in widespread property damage, numerous injuries and at least one death: Police in Detroit said shots were fired from a vehicle into a crowd of demonstrators there, killing a 19-year-old man.
In Minneapolis — where Floyd died Monday after a white officer pressed his knee into the 46-year-old’s neck — businesses were torched and shots were fired at police, who struggled to enforce an 8 p.m. curfew enacted after several nights of unrest. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) called it “absolute chaos” and said he would “take responsibility for underestimating the wanton destruction and the sheer size of this crowd.”
