Problem: police brutality leading to harassment of minority males and even death.
Solution: give the police machine guns?
A new squad of 350 will be armed with machine guns and "long rifles" to fight terrorism and protesters. Although the NYPD walked this statement back one day later, it's still tone deaf. I know that the Charlie Ebdo shootings put everyone on alert and I'd like to be safe. But do we need to be safe from protesters? Maybe there were incidents with the NYC protesters I didn't hear about which would justify this. Did you hear about them? I didn't.
