no war but snowball war

I was a witness to a DC cop pulling his gun on a snowball fight after his Hummer was hit by snowballs on Saturday. In this video by the Associated Press, I said that I thought that the only thing that could be done to counter more police violence and intimidation is to keep on planning more fun, spontaneous, community-oriented events. I’m a believer of the concept that if you don’t exercise your freedoms, your freedoms will be taken away from you. There are forces around us everyday that work to co-opt and subvert the basic freedom of the people, and if we do not resist those forces, the essence of our livelihood can be stolen from us.
