Protesting what they say is a consistently and increasingly violent police force, hundreds marched through the streets of Albuquerque, N.M., on Sunday, blocking traffic and shouting slogans. A social media campaign, which included an apparent hours-long takedown of the Albuquerque Police Department’s webpage by the activist group Anonymous, coincided with the offline events.

The protests came a little more than a week after a video posted to YouTube by local TV station KQRE showed the city’s police department fatally shooting James Boyd, a 38-year-old homeless man who was confronted by Albuquerque Police Department officers for camping in an unauthorized section of the city’s foothills.

The video, which has drawn nearly 900,000 views, was taken by a lapel camera worn by an APD officer, and showed a defiant Boyd talking to police from a distance. At one point an officer throws a flashbang, or a stun grenade, at Boyd, who then, according to police, pulled out a knife. Then, several shots are fired into Boyd’s back, and he falls to the ground.

    I personally don’t like street protests, but times being what they are, it is now necessary, I’m afraid. But let me add that my conspiracy realist mind sees a pattern here. Cops are terrorizing us, but we are led to believe that our lovely Muslims in the USA are constantly plotting new terror attacks. Maybe, but look at the loss of freedom we’ve experienced since the big attack on 9-11, allegedly done by Muslims. A frightened people, especially women, will put security above freedom every time. That’s what the power elites want.

  2. It’s the new way to deal with the homeless, mentally ill or poor slob in the wrong place at the wrong time………………..
    Any wonder why law enforcement isn’t trusted anymore?

    Worse yet, is the polarized environment it creates. Now “us” against “them”. Everyone suffers….except…..

    Maybe it is time for the gllobal elite to participate from a position of weakness?

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
