When I say, “abolish the police,” I’m usually asked what I would have us replace them with. My answer is always full social, economic, and political equality, but that’s not what’s actually being asked. What people mean is “who is going to protect us?” Who protects us now? If you’re white and well-off, perhaps the police protect you. The rest of us, not so much. What use do I have for an institution that routinely kills people who look like me, and make it so I’m afraid to walk out of my home?

My honest answer is that I don’t know what a world without police looks like. I only know there will be less dead black people. I know that a world without police is a world with one less institution dedicated to the maintenance of white supremacy and inequality. It’s a world worth imagining.

The children of Walter DeLeon, the 48 year old Latino construction worker who was shot in the head by LAPD in Los Feliz, spoke out against the way LAPD has been trying to criminalize their father. Their lawyer, Caree Harper, said  

“LAPD (is) trying to make up a reason why they shot another unarmed man of color. Everything they say should not be golden. Every word that comes out of their mouth is not gospel.”

Walter DeLeon is still in critical condition. Please have him and his family in your thoughts/prayers.

Canada: Jennifer Pawluck convicted for posting photo of anti-police graffiti online

via the Canadian scum press

A woman who posted a photo of graffiti depicting a senior Montreal police officer with a bullet in his head has received a suspended sentence. Jennifer Pawluck was found guilty in April of criminal harassment for snapping a photo of the street art and uploading it to Instagram in 2013.
The judge agreed with a joint suggestion that the 22-year-old Pawluck be given a suspended sentence, 18 months probation and 100 hours community service. She is forbidden from using Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for one year except to send private messages. Pawluck is also prohibited from posting anything about police or anyone associated with the judicial system.Montreal police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere, a high-profile spokesman, told the court that knowledge the graffiti was being shared shook him, scared his children and forced his wife to take a leave from work.

Fuck Ian Lafreniere and the Montreal police, solidarity and complicity with Jennifer!

standing next to a sikh elder in a scooter, surrounded by over 70 aggressive cops & over 200 of them in total, including on the roof above us. tried to intimidate us for 5 hours, bully, push etc including elders and children. we were protesting india’s prime minister narendra modi’s visit to the ross street gurdwara. great turnout! this fascist was banned until recently from canada & the u.s because of his war crimes against thousands of muslims in gujarat (including widespread sexual violence) and other minorities such as sikhs & more recently christians, indigenous people etc. and wants to force india to become an ultra-right hindu only state. just inked a uranium deal with harper. not one visible hindu organization in sight but so proud to stand side by side with sikh & muslim resisters. #femmewarriors #ftp #justiceformuslimsandsikhs #nomodi #noharper
