So Why Do They Rebel...Or As You Say, Riot?
Cell Phone Video Shows Charlotte, NC Cop Planting Gun Next To Police Shooting Victim Keith Scott
Media has been breathlessly reporting violence during street protests in Charlotte, NC, over the latest police execution of a Black man. We'll see if they pick up on this cell phone video that shows a cop planting evidence.
If you've been paying half attention you know this happens repeatedly, much of it now being exposed by cell phone video and people who are becoming more adept at shooting it and using editing software to highlight details. One well known case was when North Charleston, SC cop Michael Slager was shown planting a taser next to Walter Scott after he murdered Scott in cold blood while he was running away.
While an inordinate percentage of police violence victims are Black it's by no means limited to Blacks. Police forces weren't formed to give out tickets. The police predate automobiles. The police came about to round up property that ran away from slaveowners, to break strikes, to protect business property. The police are and always have been the enforcers of class war from above.
