  1. And police NO WHERE to be FOUND when a person of color is ACTUALLY committing crime. Why? Because they’re out “cruising” for an innocent 16 year old trying to walk home for THEM (police) to be able to beat and stomp the LIFE out of him/her. And YOU want US to keep paying taxes to FUND SELECTIVE MURDER by the police. These NAZI bastards do NOT serve and protect ANYONE who is NOT white and NOT rich. And NOW it appears that Colorado cops think it’s “great and funny” to tackle a 73 year old WHITE woman and proceed to DISLOCATE her shoulder, BREAK her arm and sprain her wrist. Top it off with the lovely fact that police ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY’RE ABOVE THE LAW. THAT is EXACTLY what Nazi’s (aka white supremacists and EVANGELICALS) claimed. WISE up!
