    truly there is no other website where the entire userbase violently bewails every single update, and a third party valiantly, actively undoes every new feature so users can continue to use an increasingly different version of the site than the one the developers are actually creating. effervescent

    Posting this because it’s absolutely disgusting and I can’t find anyone talking about it!

    Australians have been protesting against indigenous deaths in custody and for black lives matter for ages now with no change and the police responding by inciting violence against protestors.

    I went to the first BLM protest held in Adelaide after the murder of George Floyd, at that point there had been 432 Indigenous Deaths in custody, that was only a few weeks ago and the number has risen to 438. There has NEVER been a single conviction.

    This is how the South Australian government have chosen to respond, further weaponising and militarising the police force. They know it’s wrong, they know it’s against the needs of the people’s, they don’t care - it’s clear their priority Is control.

    PLEASE raise some noise about this, I know it’s hard, there seems to be something new we have to raise awareness about every hour but australian issues and even more so anywhere that’s not Sydney or maybe Melbourne there isn’t any media attention except MAYBE local papers/stations. This is going to endanger the lives of indigenous people in Adelaide, this is going to kill them.

    I go into the city everyday for school and work, I can already tell you the way the police treat the indigenous peoples, homeless, substance users, and anyone who is vulnerable there is horrific, I can’t imagine the level of risk this is now imposing by adding these ridiculously unnecessary weapons. The majority of our crime is related to substance disorders (meth captial of the world), homelessness, mental health crises and theft - these aren’t issues the police solve! These are issues the police aggravate and escalate.

    I’m sorry if this isn’t the most coherent post but my blood is boiling, as someone who knows exactly how the vulnerable are treated by police in Adelaide and especially the CBD this is extremely concerning.

    Please share around, make some noise, this is not okay. Silence has lethal consequences.
