Shaun, I appreciate the passion for justice and aim to take action, but I must say I think this strategy is all wrong, despite being on your side with your progressive ideals. The silly part os that in order to affect systemic change in public institutions such as the local PD your plan is to … target corportations that happen to inhabit the same zip code? Huh? A far-fetched notion that somehow these corporations will send top execs to the city council meetings or pressure the admin to make new hires? WTF? Why aren’t you putting pressure and inconvenience directly on city officials? And even if a boycott was the right choice, why not choose to boycott a full fiscal quarter?

Like what you read? Give Carlos Izquierdo a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
