Hundreds of protesters who were arrested by New York City police are set to get $ 21,500 each. The protests occurred after the death of George Floyd. Now I can see the political imbalance here, that January 6 protesters are still rotting in jail facing torture and abuse, and Covid protesters were treated with violence too by police, there has been no parallel justice for them. Still, even though these primarily Leftists are contrary to my politics, their claims are most likely justified, since the police boxed them in then laid into them with batons, completely as unjustified as was done to the Covid lockdown protesters. On this one point I can see the problem with the police here in America, but this culture is obsessed with the police and military which is not aiding drastically needed reform. Australia, I think, has a healthier scepticism about the boys and girls in blue, or paramilitary black.
