People are tired of the oppression of the state.

Police are increasingly breaching the liberties of the people.

“Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” said John Evans, PBA president.

"Their action stems from a decision by city officials Thursday to suspend two officers with pay after video showed them shoving a 75-year-old protester who struck his head on the pavement and immediately started bleeding onto the pavement. The victim is hospitalized in serious but stable condition."

The continued oppression of the American people, by the police and state, is not something that should be accepted as the status quo.

Hey, Robert! Long time no talk. Hope you're doing well!

The most optimal outcome during the riots would've been that the mob and the police just all killed each other. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, and now that things have calmed down, it's unlikely to happen.

Hey Thalmor, good to see you around. It has been a while hasn't it. Life is going well enough.

I think the optimal outcome would be for both sides to come together and discuss what are real issues. Riots tend to happen when one group is so disenfranchised that they see there being nothing to lose. It is this situation that leads to change, for good or for bad. What needs to happen is for the Police to de-escalate (police being violent and heavy handed against a protest against police violence is stupidity, both in the UK and the US) and the leaders of BLM to sit down with those in Authority.

Fundamentally this is a protest against people being treated differently because of the colour of their skin, in the UK I think it is also a protest against the government's handling of legal immigrants.

We already understand the real issues here is the long standing problem of excessive force and the inability to be self reflective and accountable to citizens from the police force on an institutional level. 

On the other hand there are also opportunist and insurgents trying to take advantage of mainly peaceful protest to riot & loot. These have been video tapped by the peaceful protesters like the guy in military grade gas mask and suit smashing windows , mysterious pallets of bricks showing up near protests etc. 

The police like any large institution that lacks proper oversight seeks to protect itself and it's members. It's not simply an issue of a bad apple but a culture of covering for the bad apple via a lack of discipline that leads to these excessive incidents then add in the ability to do their own internal investigations and you got a pretty self perpetuating cycle. 

 

On a side note notice some countries call it a Police Service while we call it a Police Force which kind of hints at the underbelly of a deeper issue in a country where we have been in a state of perpetual war for 2 decades and war mindset for over half a century.

The core reason of police brutality all over the world lies within the structure of modern nation state system. Actually all of this is always has been waiting for becoming norm. It is supposed to happen when local community disbands and becomes totally dependable on statecraft.

Can I ask you to elaborate? If I understand correctly you are advocating for more local power and less federal power?
