We ain't cheering


America
has gone nuts

Are the cops
militarized?
Hell yes

Do we need to defund
local police departments?
Hell yes

They were supposed
to protect & serve
the people....

But instead
they are
the heavily armed
goon squads
for the rich
and corporate elites

Why do they need
battle armor
flashbang grenades
M-16
MRAPS
Night-vision goggles
bayonets
airplanes
Armored vehicles
Tear gas
and a shit load
more?

Why are the cops
at war
with the public?

Could it be
because
corporate America
don't need
us anymore?
Too many
'superfluous'
people around

Lock em up
throw away the key

We are not
safer
We don't have
real rights to gather
and protest
as long as we face
a litteral army
on the streets

This is how
the military boot
has been on the necks
of poor people
around the globe
for many years

The chickens
have come home
to roost,
and we ain't cheering...

Bruce
