Slow and steady, we exhume the past. Here's some of our dirty work from the past year:

Sneaky Cop Haters in late 1970s St. Louis
A whimsical dash through five years of anti-cop mischief: “March 1976: The RIT wire basket factory in Rock Hill caught fire because someone wanted it to. That someone wasn’t hip to racist, ex-cop general manager Buck Ray. While Bucky was kicking back in his recliner at home earlier in the week, that someone also sent him telephone and postal threats and a drive-by shower of buckshot to convey something quite scary to this quite scary man.”

From Strike Mag - by Ruth Kinna

In 1819 at St. Peter’s Fields in Manchester, cavalry charged a crowd that had met to demand political reform, killing 15 and wounding hundreds. Fourteen years later Chartists met at Coldbath Fields in London to protest the inadequacy of the 1832 Great Reform Act, which left the majority of working people disenfranchised. This demonstration also met with violence, but the military were in plain clothes and crowd control was left to the newly established police force. Discussions about the reorganisation of policing had started some years before the Manchester Peterloo Massacre, resulting in the introduction of the Irish Constabulary in 1822 and the London Metropolitan Police force seven years later.

I've been in court rooms before, hell I've even stood before a judge a couple of times. Every time I've been in a court room, I've hated it. The entire system is designed to take agency and power away from everyday people; the State holds all of the cards.
