It looks like police in Baltimore are getting the war they wanted.

I heard a police spokesman complain about “lawless individuals,” but the most lawless individuals in America today are thug cops acting like an occupying military force. Perhaps if the police were as concerned about the black people they’re murdering as they are about fellow cops being injured in protests, then I’d care.

But here’s the uncomfortable truth: No minority in America ever won civil rights WITHOUT protests and demonstrations.

People complaining about violent protests against police brutality seem to forget that America won its independence with VIOLENCE.
