Pay attention

*researches Ismaaiyl Brinsley. Discovers he harmed his girlfriend before fatally shooting two police officers. Wonders if his narrative will involve cries for mental health reform or acknowledgement of the faulty system that allowed him to assault his girlfriend and then travel from Baltimore all the way to New York without issue. Realizes that narrative is not reserved for us when we commit crime. Wonders how many people realize this isolated event is not reflective of the peaceful movement for social reform that is sweeping the nation. Knows many of you have taken the bait and will now sit idly by while an even more heavily militarized police force has its way with peaceful protesters in the coming weeks, which are full of actions. Sighs heavily*
