Police Car Tires Slashed in Thibodeaux

On May 5, someone in Thibodeaux took action against the police department there, slashing 34 tires in one night. We completely understand the type of mistreatment from, and frustration with, the police that could lead to such an action.
 We want the cops out of our communities, and out of operation, as soon as possible, so we can create a society based on cooperation and community instead of inequality and individualism. The laws the police enforce maintain the racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and classism our current society is predicated upon. They are the running dogs of the wealthy elites, and their job is to maintain the very social inequality that is the root cause of most crime, thereby making us less safe than if they did not exist. If you don't believe this, just look at where the most police are at per person to see if they keep those under their authority safe: look at prisons. Prisons have plenty of police, but are still one of the most violent social arenas in the world, proving that police don't make us safe, they enforce the inequality that leads to violence.
