Watch Andrew Breitbart Flip Out On Occupiers

Emily Crockett (@emilycrockett) of Campus Progress posted a video of right-wing commentator Andrew Breitbart flipping out on occupiers at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, February 10, 2012:
 
From Campus Progress: “Conservative blogger-star Andrew Breitbart lashed out at Occupy protesters outside of CPAC, the mass annual gathering of conservatives, in Washington, DC on Friday night. Campus Progress reporter Emily Crockett was on the scene and captured video of Breitbart losing it, screaming at the protesters “Behave yourselves!” and “Stop raping people!”

During the exchange, which occured around 6:15 p.m. on Friday, Breitbart calls the demonstrators “freaks and animals” before being politely shooed away by hotel security. [Update: Looks like it was security, and not police officers, who tried to move Breitbart away.] Shortly before his appearance, the occupiers clashed with officers outside the hotels entrance, resulting in some tense moments with police and hotel security beating back and coralling the crowd.”

Vanessa Guillen: MST Martyr?

Vanessa Guillen was bludgeoned with a hammer, on base, in the armory, her remains were removed in a box. Several people saw, now deceased due to suicide, Aaron Robinson struggling with the box the night Vanessa disappeared. Guillen was a private and Robinson was a specialist. They both worked in the armory but in the army that small rank difference means a lot, and many, (if not most) exploit that.

Prison Abolition in the Age of Coronavirus

In the Prison Abolition Movement, it is a well-known fact that Police have a shared history with Slave Catching. There was a need to capture runaway slaves in metropolitan areas before that there was no need for police. Most of the lynchings of Jim Crow South were well attended and represented by police and how enforcement is distributed today is reflection of that history. Too many police and prison guards are former military to ignore the link to the prison industrial complex.
