What do you do when the gang wears blue? …[T]his goes to this notion of how we frame and understand to perceive and receive the concept of terrorism. Terrorism is not something that’s done by people that are powerless and marginalized as a response to power and their marginalization. The word originates in the French revolution in direct association with the function of the State to maintain an order contrary to the interest of the people governed.

That’s why the cop wears the gun on the hip. That’s why we have swat teams that have more fire power capacity than third world armies. They’re directed at us. We are maintained in order, in line by force of arms, that is to say – terror.
