I went to the annual Fond du Lac Veterans Powwow and the flags were at half-staff. A Blackhawk helicopter buzzed over the grounds to honor the Veterans. I knew it wasn’t going to drop bombs but I still shivered because it could happen; anywhere anytime because the police forces all across the Untied States of Fascism has been acquiring military hardware and using it against innocent civilians who protest police killing civilians and using blatant brutality.
