OMG, In my country when there would be the encounter of teenagers and police, parents would normally step in and discuss with police what happens. Nobody would pull a gun. I can't believe the mother has to beg officers from distance not to pull a gun on their kids. This is a ridiculous attitude towards people, police duty is to serve, help, and protect people, not threaten kids on the street.

Some called the area PKAZ. PK stands for Patrick Kimmons, a man shot and killed by police in 2018. Officers in the case were cleared of any wrongdoing.
At 5:30 a.m. Thursday, police declared a civil disturbance and unlawful assembly in the area, saying if people didn’t leave they would be subject to arrest or use of force.
About 30 minutes later, everyone had left the area and cleanup began.
The sudden shift in tactics came after the Portland City Council cut nearly $16 million from the Portland Police Bureau’s budget. But protesters wanted far more cut in response to concerns about police brutality and racial injustice.
PPB’s budget is about $245 million.

Is that the new American way? Take something inherently good and find the worst in it.

In times of corporate superpowers a strong labour union is almost a necessity/impossibility to counter-balance the employer-employees-relationship, yet somehow the police found a way to bastardize it. Unless of course you think that´s part of the "employer" plan, cause it keeps the gun industry firing from all cylinders, while supplying a steady stream of prison customers.

Burnley 'ashamed and embarrassed' by banner flown
Burnley are "ashamed and embarrassed" by a banner reading 'White Lives Matter Burnley' that was towed by an aeroplane over Etihad Stadium during Monday's match against Manchester City.

The aircraft circled over the stadium just after kick-off in City's 5-0 win.

Burnley and City players and staff had taken a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement moments earlier.
