well someone is leaving nice tidy pallets of bricks at these places far from any construction zones and I'm not prepared to believe that the officers who are out watching public spaces 24/7 are just going to let someone do that right before a protest without some kind of shady motive.

That's a pretty standard move. UK police stick their old empty vans where they know people will congregate and inevitably total it. Protestors look like dicks, insurance covers a new van.

This shit may as well have "bait" painted on it, but once a lot of crowds hit particular sizes, there's invariably a dickhead or provocateur. Best response I've seen so far is immediately ID dickhead and escort to police. Its not pretty but its a way to push off the violence for a while. Also ids provocatuers if sloppy police let them walk.
Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

there's footage of cops, in full riot gear no less, protesting the murders by smashing cop cars floating around somewhere from this morning. or so i have heard, edit because i'm a sourceless bitch.

There's plenty of cops doing property damage, but they're not protesting shit. They're intentionally making a bad situation worse by instigating violence to give themselves and excuse to use excessive force. There's also footage of cops delivering pallets of bricks to planned protest sites to encourage protesters to throw them, for the same reason. Absolutely zero people wearing a badge (or hiding it under plain clothes) are your friends. There are no exceptions. All cops are shit-eating pigs who deserve everything bad in life.

i was doing the thing where you fake misunderstand the best moral fiber of everyone involved specifically because it's that outrageously stupid, but okay i guess.

some bullshit

And then 2020 did get worse.

so your panties are still in a twist. fair, honestly, our last real conversations weren't exactly great, with you being you, and i was too immature and inexperienced at effectively communicating what i wanted out of you and forgiving you for shit you didn't say sorry for, i mean. that's honestly on me, for getting worked up about it after the fact. but what did you really expect, with the age gap and all? just curious.

I googled around a bit, and several of the pictures of piles of bricks I've seen are situated on brick pavements.  Some are apparently new bricks, intended to repair the road, and others are old, damaged bricks, that had been removed, and haven't been carted away yet. Admittedly, at least one of the pallets appeared to have no construction purpose that I could see in frame; but I can't jump from that to "it was obviously sanctioned by the police."

If there were no protests occurring, and you were to sweep heavily trafficked areas in dozens of major cities, looking for sites of brick pavement repair, how many would you expect to find?

Come on, you've got real atrocities being recorded on camera.  You don't need to repeat the hypothetical ones until you get more conclusive evidence.

Now that I find believable.  Nobody wants to get hit with a brick, riot gear or otherwise, but there aren't many bits on a van that you can rip off and throw at a cop.

Fuck off, Freeky.   :lulz:

The second last time we talked, you said we weren't friends.

Then I made the mistake of defending you from one of poptart's alts, same as I would have defended any member of this board.

Then you insisted that we be enemies.

So we're fucking enemies.  Which is what you wanted.  So enjoy your stay, I will make it just as much fun as you insisted.

I mean, I don't know what the fuck I was thinking.  This was during the time period where you were camping out at the bus stop across the street from Hat's apartment in one of your weird ass stalking binges.

*shrug*

There are four people I will always attack whenever I see them at PD.  Eldora, Hugh, Nigel, and yourself...More or less for the exact same reasons.

I haven't banned any of them.  But if you think I'm not going to fuck with you endlessly so long as I see you, then I am afraid you have another thing coming.  I hate you and you're, you know, right here.

Whether or not you can ignore that remains to be seen.
