JOSMAR JARAMILLO—Is the mayor actually anti-police? While the Post can’t be bothered to look into his record on policing, we know that de Blasio has refused to fire Pantaleo for over five years, shielded officer misconduct from the public, allowed the department to obtain drone technology and added 1,300 cops to the city. If that doesn’t sound like any “anti-police” official you know, don’t worry, Lynch’s point isn’t to say anything that’s true, it’s to drive the political goalposts to the right by accusing a pro-police mayor of the exact opposite—and the media allow it.

Lee correctly reminds us that the presstitutes are loathe to have a broader conversation on the role of police in American society. How many people even know what Eric’s “crime” was before being taken down by a bunch of moronic goons? Or that the US leads the world by several magnitudes in the numbers of civilians killed by police every year with total impunity? Certainly there’s something wrong here, but, as Lee points out, the ruling class is not enthusiastic about restraining its attack dogs, its fist to contain the average working stiff.

OLLIE RICHARDSON—On Saturday, March 30th, during Act 20 of the Yellow Vests, many mobilisations were held everywhere in France despite there being certain prohibitions on demonstrating. Violent scenes of repression broke out once again, illustrating the course taken in repression that is now more “offensive”. Thus, in Besançon, after a charge, as is seen in the video, a Yellow Vest is isolated, a CRS officer walks towards him and hits him violently on the head with a baton, in front of the eyes of colleagues, who show no reaction. Stunned and bleeding profusely, he is assisted by street medics. Witnesses of the scene call the police, without success. During this time the repression continues, resuming with the release of a tear gas grenade.

RAMIN MAZAHERI—What’s sad is that the majority of those arrested are first-time protesters – they simply didn’t know how to deal with cops, how to avoid cops, and how to demand their rights from bullying cops. It’s not the longtime activists who are in prison, but truly the most innocent and the most desperate. Normally in France a sentence of less than 2 years leads to no prison time – a “suspended sentence” – but not for Yellow Vesters.France is not a modern democratic nation but a “rubber bullet republic” led by a “liberal strongman”; it’s not new – Yellow Vests are experiencing what Muslims did during the 2-year State of Emergency.I have only barely discussed the appalling violence, arrests, mass trails and and mass imprisonment of France’s Yellow Vests – these are inflicted by the very cops who Western media repeatedly insist are the greatest heroes of the nation. But only a reactionary believes that – everyone hates the police; only a reactionary hates the Yellow Vests.

Carlson was not the only one to comment on Stone’s arrest, and the way it was executed. The Feds sent more armed men to arrest the 66-year-old unarmed man than it did to kill Bin Laden in 2011, he noted. Mueller, who is leading the Russiagate probe, “can send armed men to your home to roust you from bed at gunpoint just because he feels like it, and there’s nothing you, or anyone else, can do about it,” said Carlson.
