The FBI and its ilk often try to create a sense of conflict between activists. This has been part of their thought policing activities since the 1920's. Quotes like this:

"Three colorless people are going to hold Boston accountable by staring into the Christian Science frog pond"

are a strong indicator of this kind of operation. The idea is to make whites feel that non-whites are not their brothers and sisters. Likewise they post racist bullshit to make non-whites think that their white brothers and sisters are secretly racist.

This technique is also employed, using different means, in prison populations where the prisoners are forced to aggregate along racial lines and then fight each other. It keeps the prison population from uniting against the guards. (Strange how American society, both inside and outside of prisons is manipulated in the same way).

The lowlife pig who posted (over and over again) this harassing material will likely deny being a cop. Such denials hold no weight, because even if true, they are still doing the work of the police.

so any reportbacks on what happened yesterday?

It was OK. Smallish. About 40 people. Maybe more. No police presence whatsoever, except for suspected infiltrators who seemed fairly obvious. We took a lane of traffic from the start until the BPD headquarters. A little disorganized, but not too bad. We got a lot of good feedback from people driving by in their cars when they saw our signs. Especially people of color, who are so often at the receiving end of police brutality. I'm not ready to declare victory on racist cops, but it was something, and it was nice to see so many positive responses.

i didn't think i saw any cops or ones who looked like cops.
Re: Tomorrow, Protest Police Brutality!

I'm just paranoid, nevermind me (being under surveillance will do that you). I did hear a couple of things though.
No Cops ?
24 Oct 2005
there had to be cops watching us, i'm not paranoid either, but be real. The activist community gets complacent sometimes, the government is not as innempt as some people think they are.

What the hell is a "community of color?"
Re: Tomorrow, Protest Police Brutality!
25 Oct 2005
oh i don't doubt there were cops, i just didn't see anyone who stuck out like they sometimes do.

What about the two guys in the car behind the bpd building>?
Re: Tomorrow, Protest Police Brutality!
25 Oct 2005
You guys actually wasted your time doing this? Amazing!
An "infiltrator"? That is priceless! I'll share that with my friends and I'm sure that they'll get a good laugh as well. I think I was saw an "infiltrator" at a U2 concert! Ha Ha Ha
Re: Tomorrow, Protest Police Brutality!

Saw for the typo on the last sentence. It is supposed to read "once" and not "was". I was hiding under my desk from the infiltrators! :)

Keep the laughs coming! This is great comedic fiction!

You chickenhawk republicans are pathetic.The police are not our friends.They're uneducated racist thugs.Just ask Seripico.
Re: Tomorrow, Protest Police Brutality!
26 Oct 2005
That is priceless! Uneducated they are not!
Hey Gordo !
26 Oct 2005
Uneducated ? Ever hear of the Quinn Bill. I have a dual masters in psychology and sociology. And Serpico ? I thinks it's just great that you can base your opinions on over Hollywood-ized whiners. And remember, the bike messenger will eventually be replaced by the fax machine.
hey uneducated

F*CK YOU !!!!!!!!

Gordon Liddy, what happened, did the police take away your keg at the party out in the woods in Sherborn? Have your mom and dad rent a newer movie than Serpico if you feel that Hollywood portrays any group of people properly. Stereotyping is wrong, even if you feel rightous that you have some all-knowing in-sight into other humans' motivations. Have fun at Homecoming, don't get beat up by the football jocks.

F%$k y$u? That is an expected comment from the "educated" around here! Keep the laughs coming, children!

Been trying to think of a law enforcement official that I know who DOES NOT have at least one degree AND I CAN'T! Our current members of the law enforcement community, across the nation, are the best trained, equipped and educated in the world!
