I’ve been posting mostly about the rioting but it would be wrong to ignore that there are cops that are assholes. Whether this situation is making them crazy or not, they can’t disregard innocent people like this.
This family was protecting their store and the police pepper sprayed and shot them with rubber bullets. They didn’t ask why they were out past curfew, they assumed they were rioters and attacked them. You can see them take their frustrations out on these innocent people and the press.
I think the cops are shell-shocked and there’s bound to be more beatings and deaths on both sides. I don’t know how this will stop.
You can see that the business owner and his family at first trusted the police but now feel betrayed by them. I would’ve been furious too to see the police attack my family and friends, without any provocation.
