Police Accountability - by Christine Chang
All police officers and detectives should carry camera in person, and submit to psychological evaluation annually for accountability. Police sustain too much power and authority over general population. While we appreciate their presence and work, some of them abuse their power and authority against unarmed general population either harm or kill innocent people.

The Question of a US form of fascism - by Steve Martinot
In recent years, the term "fascism" is heard more and more. With the growing epidemic of police killings, mostly of people of color, with the intentional maintenance and growth of the largest prison system in the world (with practically a political guarantee of recidivism), with police making lethal demands for obedience, with the increasing corporate technological destruction of land and oceans, and with the constant obsessions with war (a misnomer for massacre from a distance), the term "fa...
