Live Streamers Make Great Informants - by WeCopwatch
There are many ways to effectively document the movement while protecting the space, its movements and people’s privacy. Live Streaming is generally NOT one of them. A common issue with Streamers is their display of entitlement, often citing the value of bringing the movement to the people. But Streamers have a hard time admitting that the police find their work more valuable then demonstrators.

How much violence does the U.S. Secret Service inflict on the public and on journalists? - by John Cohen-Colby
I want to hold the U.S. Secret Service accountable for not only its recent assault and battery upon journalist Alex Darocy, but for all its violence against the public on American soil. An objective witness validated Darocy's account. I plan on opening a DHS OIG complaint about this and lobbying the U.S. Senate — where there is already bipartisan support for reforming the Secret Service — to hold the U.S. Secret Service accountable for violence against civilians and journalists on America...

Police Brutality and the American Inquisition - by Steve Conover
In addition to looking into why Police brutalize drunks, we also should look into why police and corporations also are so supportive of AA/NA. I think I know why, such drunks then have to admit it was all their fault, they are powerless, god will make them a better employee and citizen, and god will remove their desire to drink. btw, to get food stamps and GA these folks are forced to attend AA/NA. And the really sad thing is that this American Zeitgeist is rarely questioned, as if there i...
