The non-indictments of the cops responsible for killing Mike Brown and Eric Garner have continued to spark unrest around the country and Berkeley, California, has been no different. A huge protest on Saturday and continuing protests the last couple of days have resulted in arrests, broken store windows, images of more police violence, and the shutting down of the Freeway and BART:
As hundreds of protesters began marching through downtown Berkeley, the unrest that marked protests Saturday night was touched off again as someone smashed the window of a Radio Shack. When a protester tried to stop growing vandalism, he was hit with a hammer, Officer Jennifer Coats said.
Team Blackness discussed the imagery and co-option of this protest and how it compares to what is going on in Ferguson and New York. The show also covered racism within the Secret Service, resisting arrest rates within the NYPD, and Walmart taking a stand on the violence in Grand Theft Auto–but only in Australia.
