5. He said it.."If it weren't for all these cameras you would take me out"..(paraphrasing best I can)

That was bold. Heroic.

Speaking truth to power, indeed

6. What I find interesting is that the cops are in the faces of these people

and they don't have a conversation with anyone. They look pissed off, as if they are the ones being offended. I just don't understand why they can't look at a situation like this and start talking.

That kid was so brave. The first cop really did look like he wanted to punch the kid, and he got the vibe. How hard would it have been to acknowledge and talk...

7. Righteous Rage, Jamaal.. if the police had an ounce of compassion they would know

how people are hurting at the injustice of the Eric Garner Non Indictment and the Non Indictment in the Michael Brown murder.

9. Sadly, the Black cop ...

 

be confronting the Black young man, probably prevented things going very badly for the young man ... because, looking at the 1st cop, he did not look like he was going to take much more.

10. I love

 

the courage of this young man "at thee barricades". Gives me hope in the younger generation. As long as they are speaking truth to power, the war is not finished and the fascists that control these police have not won....
