“Police brutality, especially the use of excessive force against unarmed black people, is pervasive and a travesty that has existed for generations with the knowledge and toleration of America’s criminal justice system.”

“Police brutality has even been publicly endorsed.”

“Let’s return to a gathering of law enforcement officers at Suffolk County Community College on New York’s Long Island on July 28, 2017, where the main speaker was giving advice to police on how to treat people who’ve been arrested.”

“Over the course of his presidency, Donald Trump has indulged his authoritarian instincts—and now he’s meeting the common fate of autocrats whose people turn against them. What the United States is witnessing is less like the chaos of 1968, which further divided a nation, and more like the nonviolent movements that earned broad societal support in places such as Serbia, Ukraine, and Tunisia, and swept away the dictatorial likes of Milošević, Yanukovych, and Ben Ali.”

“And although Trump’s time in office will end with an election and not an ouster, it is only possible to grasp the magnitude of what we’re seeing and to map what comes next by looking to these antecedents from abroad.”

“As in the case of many such revolutions, two battles are being waged in America. One is a long struggle against a brutal and repressive ideology. The other is a narrower fight over the fate of a particular leader. The president rose to power by inflaming racial tensions. He now finds his own fate enmeshed in the struggle against police brutality and racism.”
