The Minneapolis cop who murdered George Floyd, setting off a protest movement, Derek Chauvin, started his career as a military police officer at the notorious Fort Benning, a base named after a Confederate general that is home to the School of the Americas (now called WHINSEC), where the US Army has trained countless Latin American dictators, death squads, torturers, assassins, and coup-plotters.
Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton speak with anti-war veteran Camilo Mejía, who was trained at Fort Benning, about the deep links between US imperialism, white supremacy, and police violence.
we don’t need dictators! we need to be free from dictators!
