police brutality

We probably shouldn’t discourage cops from manufacturing insults on their lunches as long as it’s keeping them off the streets and murdering citizens.

I only lightly waded into the news while on my mini-holiday, but the cop insulting himself on his coffee was a fun distraction from the usual horrifying bullshit.

Meet Mike Bloomberg’s Biggest Fans

Read the comic on Patreon.

Sharing a media market with most of New Hampshire’s population means I’m already bombarded with Tom Steyer’s faux-cornpone ads during every Bruins game. Now with Bloomberg’s $37-million ad buy, there’ll be no space to advertise everything else I’m also not buying.

I’m a sucker for pandering to the local audience, even though I haven’t been in a Boston area paper since the beginning of this decade.

Coffee Sensitivity Training

Starbucks is getting a lot of rightly deserved flack for calling the cops on two black men, but every other franchise in America is just as likely to be the scene of the same prejudiced thing as long as white customers, employees, and managers wet their pants at the sight of a minority and call the trigger-happy cops.

You can probably tell I don’t often travel beyond the Northeast by the franchises I used. I’m sure the chain brand coffee’s bad in whatever region you live in. Just be a cheapo like me and enjoy french press of whatever beans your wife buys.

Mike Pence’s Dramatic Exits

Mike Pence did a little performance art at a football game on Sunday. Then a bunch of other news happened.

I’m still trying to do a comic about Puerto Rico, but jokes are my wheelhouse and there’s nothing funny about the ongoing disaster in our colony.

Harvard’s Future Fellowships

Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government rescinded Chelsea Manning’s fellowship, but kept a bunch of goons.

The only prestigious honor I’d accept from Harvard is free double cheeseburgers from Charlie’s Kitchen.

The Customer Compliance Cops

We heard all about United Airlines roughing up a passenger who refused to “volunteer” the seat he paid for, but the goons who did it were security and Chicago Police.

The line between privatized security and police forces is becoming increasingly thin, and corporations are now putting arbitration clauses in their contracts and user agreements to get around the justice system.

Hide and Seek with ICE

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been at the center of some pretty awful news this week.

A woman in Texas who was seeking a protective order against her abusive partner was arrested at the courthouse  after said abusive partner tipped ICE off to her immigrations status.

In Virginia, ICE agents ambushed men leaving a church’s hypothermia shelter. The list goes on and on.

The cruelty of this regime’s raids and detentions are heart wrenching, but let’s not pretend previous administrations were anything but callous either.
