So, in the wake of Tyre Nichols’ brutal murder by a growing number (there were like 15 muthafuckas by the end of the video) pigs VP Top Cop Harris spoke at his Funeral and Crime Bill Biden invited his grieving parents to the white house.

They remind me of another city’s storied police department. Philadelphia in the 1970’s and … Continue reading Punk Politics #33
