The Home of Disneyland and Police Brutality
Disneyland is in Anaheim, California. Everyone loves Disneyland, don’t they?
Disneyland is too expensive.
The lines are too long.
Orange County is racist by history.
The Real Housewives of Orange County is just absurd, –new money Okies, basically. Misogynistic rot for television obsessed Americans.
Orange County normally swings Republican.
Perceived and real gangbangers are in Anaheim, California.
Gangbangers harass, assault, and rape women. I would not feel safe walking in an area with or without my daughters where gangbangers are known to hang out, especially gangbangers who are prompted to prove their masculinity all the time. Particularly when proving that masculinity has something to do with violently subjecting women.
I don’t care about gangbangers.
The police have murdered a perceived gangbanger, –“murdered,” by most accounts. I tend to believe the accounts are true. After all, there was no gun or knife found. When there is no gun or knife to be found, one has to wonder why didn’t the police handle the situation peacefully.
Has the American cowboy trope of shooting first and asking questions later, really, really, and not just in isolated cases, but really, really become our reality? For certain communities, for sure.
Police kill perceived and real gangbangers. I don’t care about real gangbangers. But, what happens when the police move on to people other than real gangbangers?
Gangbangers have families who are not gangbangers, and who love those gangbangers.
Gangbangers perceived or otherwise harass and assault women.
The police kill perceived and real gangbangers.
What happens when the police view everyone as a gangbanger, even little wee tots?
The police harass, assault and rape women. Sometimes women who have called 9-11 for help, after a rape.
My daughters and sisters are screwed either way.
