I stand firmly against the police as they exist in America today. Regardless of whether or not individual officers are good or bad they are all part of a system of oppression that I cannot condone.
I know it’s not “cool” to get “political” on the internet but I just don’t consider this a political issue. I get that talk is cheap but I think it’s the first step. It’s important to talk about injustice, to not be complacent about it, or implicit. When people talk, others are educated, when enough people are educated, hopefully things can begin to change. This is important. Lives are at stake.

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry."
