    Power comes from context, which is missing here.

    It's all in the picture if you look close enough.
    I have no opinion. I only comment on the picture.

    All in the picture? Is this Fallujah or San Francisco? I can't imagine what's going on here.

    This is it.

    Actually, there is quite a good similarity to the armored cops.

    Freeze frames.
    They were advancing to move her from blocking a highway.

    That's what makes it powerful. It really doesn't matter where it is.
    A rifle, a line of riot police, 2 of them-one with cuffs and a lone defiant young woman.
    Maybe it's just me.

    Yes, perhaps. But it is the thing unrest is made of.
    Think Arab Spring.
    - a perceived dictatorship
    - corruption
    - high unemployment
    - brutality
    - high prices
    Now put yourself in urban America or the South.
    Our country and the world is changing and we haven't figured out what to do with it.
    Maybe not this year or next, but we are close to a tipping point.

    I don't have to, I've lived as a black man in urban America and the South. Our country is doing just fine. This 'race' war fantasy some people have is sick.

    If I was the cop and single, I'd say listen when this is all over can we get a cup of coffee somewhere away from here?

    Right. And coal mining is coming back to Virginia.
    What's your plan for those guys?

    Only because of media and their bloodlust.
