It opened my eyes. The ACLU has a lengthy breakdown of police discrimination in Minneapolis. But wait, I say, I am an enlightened white person, and I never see any of this!
I wonder why?
I’m also beginning to understand why right-wingers hate the ACLU so much. They keep documenting the unpleasant facts!
Actually, you need to know a little more. Here’s an eyewitness account of what happened at the recent Minneapolis shooting.
I was at the #4thprecinct tonight when white supremacists shot 4 (maybe 5) protestors.
I sat in the hospital for a little while talking to the girlfriend of one of the men shot. He was where he was because he was trying to keep protestors calm in the face of those racists. He just turned 19. He was in surgery when I left (his family showed up).
It took 20 minutes for the ambulances to get there after the shots happened. I had to call 911 twice to get someone to pick up. When protestors screamed at the cops inside the precinct that people had been shot, the cops answered with “this is what you wanted” before shutting their doors. Four armed men got away after shooting up a crowd outside of a precinct.
“this is what you wanted”. Fuck you too, Minneapolis police.
