iPhone : rahel Some do and historically they have cooler heads that proper cops because of it, though perhaps that doesn’t hold anymore.

iPhone : seems like it really is quite rarely invoked—before the 1992 LA riots, its last use was in 1957 by eisenhower to enforce school desegregation in little rock, arkansas ie federalise the arkansas national guard who had been initially called in to prevent 9 black kids from attending

iPhone : i hope also that i’m not misunderstanding, misinterpreting because i’m really not familiar with this i had thought military police were like the mall cops of army bases i did NOT realise they see combat ie

iPhone : Hilary Dixon i am not sure tbh seems like the insurrection and posse comitatus acts—which i didn’t know about until basically now, so maybe misunderstanding—do grant the president, vs military, an extraordinary amount of power

iPhone : militarised as american police forces already are, we’ve all seen what US military intervention abroad looks like i feel sick

iPhone : so it turns out “military police” is literally active duty military deployed to act as a domestic police force via the insurrection act, which was last invoked during the rodney king riots in 1992 nytimes.com/aponline/2020/…

iPhone : Denver police department is not allowing protestors to be bailed out of jail, with the support bail funds are currently receiving I’m afraid more police departments will follow suit. twitter.com/elisabeth/stat…

iPhone : I was so so moved by this, so I’m sharing it

iPhone : “The outrage over the arrest of Jimenez depends on assigning him a professional value.” newyorker.com/culture/on-tel…

iPhone : why is there no way to turn off auto play without also opting into lower quality images

iPhone : A little tangential but Today I went to the Barclays Center where the George Floyd protests took place this evening. I gotta say some of my favorite vandalism was this one at this unnecessary succulent and CBD store

iPhone : The word Thug comes from the Hindi word Thuggee which was a group of people in North India that allegedly bothered the British.

Here is a picture of a gang of Thugs from 1894.

iPhone : #RestInLOVE to Tony McDade, a Black trans man who was recently murdered by the police in Tallahassee, Florida. Black trans people are seldom ever included in the larger discussion of police brutality, but we here at MPJI will honor his name and correctly gender him #ICantBreathe

iPhone : Update: Got her permission with a fuck yeah. The cop pushed her so hard at Barclays & she flung back. She is tiny. Now she’s in the ER after a serious seizure. I’m waiting for updates but have to wait outside because of COVID-19. Please keep my protest sister in your thoughts.
