My friend was helping people as a street medic when Austin Police fired a non-lethal round that basically shattered her hand.

She's still hoping folks can assist with her medical costs. ❤️

@thraeryn Why don't the criminals that attacked her have to pay?


That's a wonderful question.

Right now, the answer is "Police accountability doesn't really exist," and it's one of the reasons people are still out protesting.

@thraeryn Yes. Police are mostly 'above the law' everywhere.
