Last year Kenosha, Wisconsin burned because a coward cop shot Jacob Blake in the back 7 times. Today it was decided to not press charges against said cop. The legal system has never been there to bring justice to the victims of its machinations. It is only there to crush us. You can read more about last year’s unrest in our book We Fight: Three Decades of Rebellion Against the Police.
Early on January 1, 2009, in Oakland, California, 22-year-old Oscar Grant was shot in the back by a BART cop while another cop kneeled on Grant’s back. 6 days later the murderer resigned, but people weren’t having it and sought revenge. You can read more about this in our book We Fight: Three Decades of Rebellion Against the Police.

pro tip for humans when interacting with any animal that isn't a domestic dog
don't fucking stare at them. this goes for basically every wild animal but also domestic cats. humans and dogs (which we co-evolved with over millions of years) are the weirdo outliers in nature when it comes to eye contact. for every other critter, they will usually interpret looking at them for an extended period in one of two ways:
• i view you as prey and am actively considering hunting you
• i view you as a threat or rival and want you to know that i'm not letting my guard down around you
most animals are constantly using their senses to maintain situational awareness of their surroundings, and the way humans prioritize vision over hearing and smell to zero in on only what's right in front of them is fucking alien to them.
this is *part* of why cats can't stand people who pay too much attention them and seem to gravitate towards people who ignore them. not staring means you're comfortable in their presence and lets them know they don't need to be wary of you.
it's different when you already have an established relationship, but it's critical for building trust with strangers.
