You can tell the capitalist state’s façade is cracking when its repressive arm threatens to shoot its mouthpiece.

County officials refuse to pay medical bills for toddler burned by SWAT grenade
Officials in Georgia’s Habersham County are refusing to pay for the mounting medical expenses of a toddler seriously injured by a flash grenade after a failed SWAT team raid earlier this year.
Bounkham ‘Bou Bou’ Phonesavanh was just 19 months old when a Habersham SWAT team initiated a no-knock warrant at his family’s home at around 3 a.m. on May 28. Bou Bou was asleep in his crib at the time, surrounded by his family and three sisters. The toddler was severely injured when SWAT team officers broke through the house’s door and threw a flashbang grenade that ultimately landed in the Bou Bou’s crib.

Fuck the police. Coast to coast. Fuck em!

After an autopsy revealed Michael Brown was shot 6 times, Ferguson once again descended into chaos

The ongoing situation in Ferguson, Mo. quickly worsened again this weekend after a few days of relative calm. Tensions escalated significantly on Sunday as police used tear gas violently dispersed hundreds of angry protesters marching towards a police command center — two hours before a midnight curfew was scheduled to go into place. Missouri’s Gov. Jay Nixon said on Monday morning that he would send the National Guard to Ferguson to restore calm.

"It is now beginning to look like a movement"

New Ghettos Burning 

The 1992 Los Angeles Riots were the first in a new type—mischaracterized by the media as “race riots,” the events in LAwere more that of a general, decentralized uprising which made no demandsand, in so doing, were able to cohere a new national atmosphere around them, as riots again spread across the country. No longer were the riots simply limited to a district or two, as had been the case in the Watts riots thirty years prior. Now rioting spread with the entire city as its substrate—a tendency seen again, though in more limited ways, in Cincinnati in 2001.

It is not coincidental that this new national sequence of rioting began in LA, one of the US’ most suburban cities. The Los Angeles riots were a window into the future, their decentralized geography foreshadowing the evolution of the American riot as it adapted to the new ghettos that, in 1992, had only begun to be built. And now, twenty years later, Ferguson offers us a second window: this time into how those new ghettos might burn.
