Police here and there are kneeling with (or to?) pre-riot protesters.

Police in Fayetteville, North Carolina, made a surprising move Monday during a tense stand off with protesters seeking justice in the case of George Floyd, who died after being restrained by police in Minneapolis.

All 60-plus officers knelt before the marchers on Murchison Road.

This may be, in certain places and cases, exactly what’s needed. Though it could also carry the aura of defeat or supplication. Or, is this the NFL writ large? Interesting times.
