There are so many and as we remember him, I want to remember to advocate for uprooting the police force as we now know it. Bring in one of those corpse downsizers TPTB are so proud of and get rid of all racists and bullies. Completely change the training and dive into the real meaning of “protect and serve.” Fully fund the new humanist, and of course, force as a last resort, police force.
Let’s start with an article (appears to be largely sourced from Faiz Shakir) about how Bernie recently has been pushing the progressive position harder on Biden as a counterweight to centrists like Manchin and Sinema.
RUNNING ORDERS by Lena Kahlaf Tuffaha They call us now, before they drop the bombs. The phone rings and someone who knows my first name calls and says in perfect Arabic “This is David.” And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass-shattering symphonies still smashing around in my head I think, Do I know any Davids in Gaza?
