Snippet: Caught On Camera, Police Explode in Rage and Violence Across the US ☇

Shared on June 1, 2020

T.C. Sottek for The Verge:

Over the past 72 hours, people across the US have captured what may be the most comprehensive live picture of police brutality ever. Any one of the videos we’ve seen could have sparked a national discussion, with people picking apart their elements, searching for context to argue about, and digging through the pasts of everyone involved. But it’s not just one act of violence. It’s everywhere.

It’s frustrating how simple the conversation should be. People are protesting police brutality. Instead, a number of police departments are responding with…wait for it…police brutality. (Yes, I know I’m paraphrasing John Gruber, but I’ve also verbally said it multiple times today while watching the news.)
