CNN: After Weeks of Protests, Meaningful Police Reform Appears Unlikely

by | Jun 29, 2020

“…But it all may have been for nothing.”

Instead of trying to entirely abolish racial prejudice from society and demanding every leftist reform under the sun, maybe the Black Lives Matter movement could focus on accountability for killer cops, ending qualified immunity, demilitarization, ending the drug war and SWAT team night raids for a bit first?

All that energy has just dissipated away by the movement crying into the wind about every last thing and therefore accomplishing nothing. I wish we could blame COINTELPRO, but people are just stupid is all.
