P.G. Cops Strike Again

Apr 26, 2010

Once again, the Prince George County, Maryland cops show a section of the population who is boss. After the University of Maryland beat Duke, the cops beat some students and then dared to turn around and say the students had attacked them. No one believes unarmed students attacked cops in riot gear and on horses.

Usually the cops direct the violence and intimidation at black people and working class people. But occasionally, P.G. County cops let loose on other sections of the population – like the mayor of Berwyn Heights and college students most recently.

No surprise in capitalist society, where groups of men are armed and given the power to use force against the population.
