7. They can be terrible here, but I agree that many other places are even worse

Minneapolis has a long history of protests, we have marches here quite frequently and more often than not the police handle them professionally. When the police go wrong here however, they go really wrong and there is also a really long history of police abuses here, and as this incident proves once again the law enforcement community agencies here are very corrupt and they need to be held accountable.

You are correct however that many other places have it worse, but we are certainly not the best either. The Madison, WI police are the only police force I have felt was on my side in any city that I have protested in but I am sure they have their issues as well.
