These photos further solidify my belief that people who live in cities are the most imbalanced nutjobs.  It's just like industrial livestock.  Too many people living too close together leads to a horror show of chaos.

 Atlanta’s mayor says two police officers have been fired and three placed on desk duty pending review over excessive use of force during a protest incident Saturday night.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said at a news conference Sunday that she and police Chief Erika Shields made the decision after reviewing body-camera footage. Shields called it “really shocking to watch.”

that's how you do it.

You got people richer than some world countries sending rockets into space and competing who can make a better business model out of it.

On the other side you have people enraged and desperate over inequality and injustice, who need to be heard but no one listens.

The news happen on the same day

I also noticed the parallel to this track

An interesting idea, despite the academic criticism- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strauss–Howe_generational_theory

Quote

The Strauss–Howe generational theory, also known as the Fourth Turning theory or simply the Fourth Turning, describes a theorized recurring generation cycle in American history and global history. It was devised by William Strauss and Neil Howe. According to the theory, historical events are associated with recurring generational personas (archetypes). Each generational persona unleashes a new era (called a turning) lasting around 20–22 years, in which a new social, political, and economic climate exists. They are part of a larger cyclical "saeculum" (a long human life, which usually spans between 80 and 90 years, although some saecula have lasted longer). The theory states that after every saeculum, a crisis recurs in American history, which is followed by a recovery (high). During this recovery, institutions and communitarian values are strong. Ultimately, succeeding generational archetypes attack and weaken institutions in the name of autonomy and individualism, which ultimately creates a tumultuous political environment that ripens conditions for another crisis.

Man you don't burn the courthouses - that causes extra unhappiness in your citizens until the city is restored to normal.

the dude with a sword? he went to the hospital, he lived. couldn't wait to get his ass back on Twitter ASAP and get some exposure, but now he closed his account apparently. the people kicking his ass seemed to have a good handle on how to kick someone's ass without killing them, because they sure could've easily killed him if they'd wanted. but they weren't reckless assholes like cops or something, they practiced some amount of restraint.

protecting a bar he loves. 

for Christ.

I mean it would be ironic if POC owned any of those cars.  For certain though, burning them will surely open the eyes of the rich to the struggles of the proletariat, and not in any way galvanize them against the poor. Definitely not.
