Apparently police did what police in America do in 2015, which is brutalize people after a Movement for Black Lives (#M4BL) rally:
It’s the look of sheer contempt on his face that makes it so easy to imagine him wielding a fire hose on unleashing a German Shepherd on a civil rights marcher or gassing people attempting to cross the Edmund Pettus bridge.
Meanwhile, this is what the Department of Homeland Security is up to:
he Department of Homeland Security has been monitoring the Black Lives Matter movement since anti-police protests erupted in Ferguson, Missouri last summer, according to hundreds of documents obtained by The Intercept through a Freedom of Information Act request.
The documents, released by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Operations Coordination, indicate that the department frequently collects information, including location data, on Black Lives Matter activities from public social media accounts, including on Facebook, Twitter, and Vine, even for events expected to be peaceful. The reports confirm social media surveillance of the protest movement and ostensibly related events in the cities of Ferguson, Baltimore, Washington, DC, and New York.
They also show the department watching over gatherings that seem benign and even mundane. For example, DHS circulated information on a nationwide series of silent vigils and a DHS-funded agency planned to monitor a funk music parade and a walk to end breast cancer in the nation’s capital.
Black Lives Matter marchers- “Please stop killing us.
Homeland Security- “We better keep an eye on these trouble makers.”
