man i’m beat.
a guy got maced tonight during cop block. we got the aftermath of everything with the cops on video. i’ll spend some of my day tomorrow getting him and his girlfriend in touch with some lawyers form our legal team. besides that i think our presence deescalated a few traffic stops and maybe 2 pedestrian stops on 6th street. good stuff.
cops definitely did not like us filming. they called for back up twice. one of the bike cops recognized us from the police complaint department and was really “friendly” and totally condescending *as usual*. he said hi then told us to film up the street where all the “action” was…like as if we were really about believe that…or believe that he was actually trying to help us. you’re not even good at *pretending* to be nice dude!
thanks to all the people who recognized us and were showing support tonight. but y’all should help us cop block instead of just giving us high fives and fist bumps :)
also super big thanks to jimmy johns for housing us in their a/c, letting us charge our cameras/phones, and giving us tons of water.
we’ll be out again tomorrow :D
