I'm Chimerror, a game dev from Seattle making all sorts of dumb furry games. I sometimes stream playing games too!
Here we see the pattern again. One cop lashes out over a minor annoyance and the rest of them attack the crowd.
Watch the video, one cop snatches an umbrella, the one next to him sprays the umbrella owner, and the rest spray wildly.
Cop riots. They're almost always cop riots. https://twitter.com/KenJennings/status/1267691406488825856
Remember, the demand is to defund the police (the goal is their abolition). It is not to replace the old police with new police, or to charge an individual cop. To start, mayor's need to cut a huge gash in their police budgets & promise to redistribute those funds to communities.
You know what? I'll just leave these anti armour fighting stuff here. Just if anyone wants to suddenly pick up the logic on how to fight against heavily armoured opponents.
Hey so I saw a tweet going around about someone making plywood shields for protesters. But as someone who has done SCA style stuff, I can tell you those plywood shields get heavy very quickly. I'd like to offer an inexpensive, light weight alternative (1/6)
syrian people are living in a war and they’re still protesting for BLM. y’all have no excuses.
Stop allowing police to use protests as an opportunity to create copaganda.
If they supported the cause, they’d stop killing us.
They’d stop protecting the cops who kill us.
They’d stop teargassing us for protesting.
No cop is an ally of the cause unless they quit the force
I see a lot of people posting heavy plywood shields for protecting yourself. Listen to an old LARPER if you take a Rubbermaid lid and blue camping pad and use 3m spray adhesive you can made a huge, lightweight and durable shield for blocking rubber bullets and canisters.
“Wow. Cops killed a black man. Look at this video, he was begging for his life and they were laughing."
"That's terrible. But fortunately, they can be prosecuted for murder.
"Oh, my. You're new to America, aren't you? The prosecutor will decline to indict."
reminder that we’re pretty dang capable when it comes to setting up, securing, and maintaining computer systems and communication networks…
while it is not safe and advisable to talk about going to or organize protests publicly online, here's a quick infographic i threw together that covers which communication apps are the safest to use for these kinds of things! be safe and be vigilant! #BlackLivesMatter

I haven’t read more than a third of this yet but here’s a great blog post on the general subject from a Seattle collective that includes an account of the same thing happening in 2011 in the wake of the acquittal of the cop who murdered JT Williams https://blackorchidcollective.wordpress.com/2011/04/26/reflections_antipolice_seattle/?fbclid=IwAR17S2z9s_iQHbIHJw2K26slnz3THQAFGk75sAfPJktEWeDFJZ_FLozn-9U
In my experience with riots and protests, the way police approach a large threatening group is as follows.
It's very rough but their general strat is to disperse the group as if herding them apart from eachother, using the intersections and urban layout to achieve these ends.
have you ever wondered what the police, fire, and paramedics are up to in YOUR community, but were afraid to find out? let me help you with the magic of

This is my park. I've played soccer here.
@Acyn It wasn't a firework, like she & Brian thought, it was most definitely a teargas canister launched directly at her & her crew.
I was really inspired by a fashion look in our local Cosmopolitan magazine. It also was a nice opportunity to make another fanart of Nala 👀
