Remember in 2013 when there were riots in Bellingham? (I remember pictures posted on here of a girl twerking on a police car that happened during this). Cops busted up a party and hundreds of drunk college students flooded the streets, throwing bricks and beer bottles at police cars, tearing down street signs, streaking and screaming at officers.
This crowd had no legitimate cause and was not peaceful in the slightest.
No tear gas. No rubber bullets. Not one person was detained. The police used crowd-clearing efforts like a smoke bomb and pepper spray. So hundreds of drunk white kids can deface public property and have NO legitimacy, but a mostly peaceful crowd of protestors who are protesting a murder? They get tear gassed, and detained for no reason.
YES THANK YOU FOR THIS
I thought about this, too.
Everyone is just really dumb up in Bellingham :I
^^^ that is a HIGHLY false statement
i live in bellingham and it happens to be the nicest community i have ever lived in
this riot literally happened right outside my apartment … it was in october, the 2nd week of school and some idiot invited the whole freshman class to party at their house and the cops found out and busted it before it got huge and all the tiny freshman got mad and upset it was fucking ridiculous ok the police actually did use tear gas and rubber bullets to get them to clear the property
