Freddie Gray was murdered by pigs when he had: a black woman Democratic mayor, a black woman Democratic DA, a 100% Democratic city council, a black police chief, a black Democratic secretary of homeland security, a black Democratic attorney general, and a black Democratic president.
None of them prevented his murder or did anything to prevent similar future murders.
so what is voting supposed to do about police violence? is his republican governor the reason he died, and the political failure that killed Freddie Gray the fact that Democrats didn't capture that single position?

death, police violence, police murder, Columbus OH
Sarah Grossman, a 22yo woman that just graduated from OSU, died from tear gas exposure this week in Columbus while protesting. It was originally going around that she had asthma but that apparently wasn't the case - her death was entirely from tear gas exposure, not any pre-existing condition (tho even if she did have asthma her death would still be on the cops).
Sarah was murdered for showing up to fight fascism and racism, and I hope we never forget that. Abolish the police. ACAB. Send every cop to either The Hague or the sun, no compromises.
@dch @aral even if you don’t think it’s a privacy problem, it is a problem that contact tracing apps 1. can’t logically work if you know even the first thing about the technology involved and basic statistics. 2. don’t work based on the evidence from countries that have tried. 3. are promoted under the dangerously false pretence that they somehow protect you from getting infected like a digital talisman or, as the Australian PM called it “sunscreen”.
"My problem with contact tracing apps is that they have absolutely no value," Bruce Schneier, a privacy expert and fellow at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, told BuzzFeed News. "I'm not even talking about the privacy concerns, I mean the efficacy. Does anybody think this will do something useful? ... This is just something governments want to do for the hell of it. To me, it's just techies doing techie things because they don't know what else to do."
COVID-19 Financial Issues: Suggestion
If you're being financially impacted by COVID-19, start a document right now and outline every way in which you've been impacted.
There will likely be some aid made available to folks in need, but under capitalism, you have to account for every penny before they'll give you a cent.
Better to start that now than scramble to put it together later.
Just another cube in a red jumpsuit.
