Peaceful Protesters =/= Peaceful Police @ Protests

Of course, killing #cops is NOT “the answer” [to ending police brutality], but using #MartinLutherKingJr’s belief in peaceful protest to posit that point is incredibly disingenuous, if not outright intellectually dishonest.

His belief in peaceful resistance didn’t render the police peaceful, only the Black people being brutalized by said police (and firemen who blasted peaceful #Black bodies with water pressure powerful enough to break concrete).

And, lest we forget, #MLK did not die peacefully.

Again, killing cops is NOT “the answer,” but being peaceful has never stopped cops from killing us. #dontBSyourself
