While night watch groups were established in the northern colonies, groups of white men organized into slave patrols in the southern colonies. These slave patrols were responsible for controlling, returning, and punishing runaway slaves. The slave patrols helped to maintain the economic order in the southern colonies. These slave patrols are generally considered to be the first “modern” police organizations in this country. In 1837, Charleston, South Carolina, had a slave patrol with over one hundred officers, which was far larger than any northern city police force at that time (Walker, 1999).

Video of St. Louis police shooting raises questions about officers’ story

sonofbaldwin:

In the United States, when a police officer shoots and kills someone, by instinct, by training, by matter of course, they immediately reshape reality to fit their course of action.

Whatever they have to do or say to make the unjustifiable justified, they will do.

They will lie, hide or destroy evidence, contradict the testimony of eyewitnesses, plant drugs or weapons, claim a wallet or a bottle of soda was a gun, claim the victims shot themselves (even with hands cuffed behind their backs), say they were being charged, say the victims tried to take their guns—whatever it takes to make the senseless make sense.

And because of their positions and uniforms, the public and the system are wont to believe the lies.

Sometimes, even when there’s video that contradict the police account of events, the public and the system are wont to evaluate it in a way that gives police the benefit of the doubt—especially if the victim is black and disabled.

Like so.

Resistance Ecology | Animal Liberation Against Israeli Occupation | We Stand with Palestine

thebunnyalliance:

"…Animal liberation activists must stand against the occupation of the land by an industrial and highly militarized (and US-backed) Israeli government. We cannot see the occupation as our ally, be fooled by the crumbs that they throw us, or sellout those who need our support and solidarity because we’ve been led to believe it will help achieve some vegan utopia. The animal liberation movement needs to work for Palestinian solidarity. Anything less would be a failure to make meaningful change for the mass amounts of animals consumed in the machinery of colonialism. It is time we make the connection…”

25 years I’ve been on this earth and It’s only been in the last year of my life that I’ve explored this great state I’m fortunate to live in. There is so much to see and do, it’s makes no sense to sit idly by and not explore your surroundings. #evanisontheroad #seekexploration #liveauthentic #vsco #vscocam (at Rest Area)
