The tactics of these mass demonstrations are, I believe fatally flawed. Since the worldwide police population has a mandate from their political masters to behave in a totally insane and criminal manner, they have intentionally created conditions which are remarkably similar to pre-war 1930s fascist Europe. In doing so they have totally abrogated any claim to be an agent of the people protecting and defending them against anti social forces. I suggest a much better idea. All these policeman presumably live in communities all over the country with their families. A most effective tactic would be to totally ostracize them and their wives, children extended family; but not at all in a way that is confrontational. Just explain that you and your family cannot in all good conscience allow any contact with a person (and any of their extended family) whose actions are plainly totally unacceptable in a civil society.
