The Fun Police

While it’s hard to see through the thick haze of weed smoke, the weekly drum circle that forms on Venice Beach on sundays is nothing short of a visual spectacle. Hundreds of perfect strangers congregate to get down to the accoustic rave and welcome in the new week…that is until the cops show up and surround us on all sides – headlights beaming and handcuffs at the ready. Recent events of Police brutality across the U.S have only strengthened the public’s resolve, turning the drum circle from a fun rhythmic mass into a mass protest. And while everything remained relatively peaceful, a few people got carted off as others stood back chanting, “Fuck Tha Poleeece“.
