There was an anti-police, anti-ICE, radical Leftist march in DC organized under the hashtag #StopMPD.
It was the usual mashup of Lefitst beliefs from racist police to environmentalism.
#ClimateJustice & #RacialJustice are intertwined. While climate change knows no boundaries, communities of color are hit first and worst. We need decarbonization, but also strategies to decolonize, detoxify, demilitarize, de-gentrify & democratize our communities @DMVBlackLives pic.twitter.com/tkTVd9feWZ

I still have no idea how DC is colonized but that is just the jargon of the times.
When Trump tries to use gov shutdowns and national emergencies to tear our families apart; When the police and ICE track, target, and kidnap our people; When the legislators, courts, cops, and jails collaborate to weaken our communities; We are the frontline of defense. #StopMPD pic.twitter.com/YEgW0UMLkr

In this tweet, the woman in the middle is wearing a shirt that says “Assata taught me” in reference to Assata Shakur the cop killing socialist fugitive.
Until all of our families are safe and together, we will organize, take the streets and fight back.
Until our community is free from cages and police violence, we will fight for and protect each other.

Again I have to ask, cui bono with letting prostitutes walk freely on city streets?
What is fantastic about all of this is that less than two weeks ago there was news from Brazil relavent to all of this.
A Brazilian city’s murder rate has soared by 650 per cent with 52 homicides in just three days after police officers went on strike.
Military troops had to be deployed in the state of Espírito Santo after looting, rape and murders broke out on Saturday amid the industrial action.
The chaos has been compared to the 2014 thriller film The Purge, where people take advantage of the absence of law and order to carry out horrific crimes.
With officers staging a walk-out over conditions and wages, thugs are running riot, with people running rampant with guns and machetes, shops being robbed, buses set on fire and dead bodies are left lying in the street.
Does anybody thing that parts of DC (if not almost all of DC) is any different than Brazil?
If the police were to be abolished, will DC suddenly fall into peace and prosperity, with racial harmony and equality for all?
Or will DC turn into The Purge with the criminal element taking over in very short order?
Since I believe that human behavior is human behavior, the criminal element of DC is no different than the criminal element of Brazil.
Do these people not understand that, or is there goal to make that happen?
