hello fellow white people. it's easy to post "fuck the police" and say "i would never call the police" and listen to millions of dead cops and think 1312 thoughts but! have you considered what you would do INSTEAD of calling the fash? no? how about a lil homework:

12 things to do instead: https://www.sproutdistro.com/2017/07/28/new-zine-12-things-cops/amp/
not being a bystander: https://vimeo.com/199947156
It looks like that last resource has been moved to a new location:
@polyplacophora @selontheweb i find this to be the best of the resources because it actually gives new information on organizations resources and safe intervention strategies as alternatives, where the other links are mostly examples where cops aren't needed. obviously the latter is also important but this seems targeted towards people that already understand the potential harm of police
@selontheweb lol sel i just saw this seconds after making a post u truly are the better version of me 👺
Good to take a little time to back up training and experience even if all this is familiar.
@selontheweb nice collection of resources, thanks! Somehow not surprised to see the UU have guidelines for this
@selontheweb didn't expect even Seattle to be affected. When the dust settles a lot of police departments ought to be investigated thoroughly for excessive use of force.
@selontheweb You might want to repost with the "/amp/" removed from the end of the "SproutDistro" link, as that bit causes the link to die...
