So pigs take Kyle in peacefully, even allowing him to come in on his own, but gun down Reinhoel commenting “As they attempted to apprehend him, there was gunfire,” not specifying where the gunfire came from, and eyewitnesses stating he was unarmed with his hands in the air.

... to expand just a little more, what's important about Michael's past week is the strength and principle to act decisively, an act with which was too great for the white supremacist state. He had crossed a line with white on white violence. His death sentence is not a surprise, but another reminder of why this social contract needs to end. Anarchists do not fetishize violence, nor is the spirit of this post meant to say armed struggle is the only struggle, but to call attention to the stakes

Rest in Power Michael Forest Reinoehl

The state has just assassinated a militant antifascist. Michael acted against fascist street terror and in defense of the people of and in defense of the struggle for liberation. There has been a disgusting amount of slander by those who want social peace (a return to normal). He acted courageously in the ongoing civil war and passed a martyr. We remember him and his revolutionary deeds. The state has taken so many.

"if anarchist publishing has any common theme, it is to dream of a society in which organized violence and the threat of systematic violence would not exist, where there would never be a situation in which groups of men with sticks and guns and bombs would be able to threaten others. ... Nothing could conceivably be more violent than to tell us —and particularly our young people— we are forbidden to even dream of a peaceful, caring, world.”
