We knew they've been authorized to do it and now we have footage: Canadian federal police aiming rifles at the Wet'suwet'en land defenders

"Just using the scope"

1) Binoculars exist, but if you can't afford those,
2) You don't have any scopes not attached to rifles laying around? Really?

When do we stop calling police police and start calling them the domestic branch of the imperial military complex?

@a_breakin_glass A lot of people will argue til their white little faces turn purple that police are constables there to prevent violence

@a_breakin_glass also i've myself made jokes about how cops aren't soldiers because soldiers have to follow war conventions and us police do not (lots of domestic police forces have said they will follow those conventions but almost no us police force has)
