well it was a crazy week
and as life goes, what you may think is weird in your personal or professional relationships can suddenly turn into small potatoes when shit goes afoul in the USA and then your own city.
this was the week that a young man was killed in Minnesota and it was filmed.
his murderer: a cop.
it took forever for the cop to get fired which pissed off a bunch of people, and then it took a while for his three partners to get canned. but only the one cop ended up getting arrested, and that took a bunch.
so add to the mix the fact that most of the USA is locked down, watching things over and over on the internet and TV, and added to that people don’t have to go to work in the morning. Also people are nervous and mad and scared about their jobs. 40 million americans are unemployed.
then sprinkle onto that the fact that white women are still calling the cops on black men for being black, and the POTUS has zero leadership abilities, and the rich are somehow getting richer from funds that are supposed to go to small businesses
and you have a slow burning fuse
and then a powder keg.
people stealing stuff not just in the hood any more, that’s so 20th century, now they have gone to beverly hills, and melrose, and today was santa monica.
nordstom at the grove was hit.
gucci on rodeo drive.
big five in santa monica.
everything must go.
now theres fires across the street from the white house.
on friday trump was rushed down to an underground bunker.
shit’s so crazy and so wild that i have zero story ideas.
and whats worse is i have three stories in the can that if i had worked faster and pushed harder would already be out there but now if they go out this week they’ll probably seem stale.
cuz theyre based on COVID, which is still a thing, but the Riots are the new thing
racism, police brutality, the national guard
the deadly disease is def not the main thing any more.
which is a lesson i knew a long long time ago: publish your stuff ASAP because you never know what world changing event will happen tomorrow.
