I. Romano Centurio: "Barbari non conficebitis aliquid."
II. Barbarus: "O ita? Deinde meme non scribit in Latine?"
III. Centurio putat.
IV. Centurio est iratus. Vicus Barbarorum est ardens. Roma est victoriosus!
There was no excuse to destroy innocent peoples' livelihoods, especially in the middle of this pandemic when so many people are struggling financially. I don't deny that police brutality and systematic racism exist. Fixing those dynamics and all the suffering they cause is vital and urgent, without a doubt. But hurting people simply because you can doesn't fix jacks***. It only makes the whole mess worse.
