Cops Behaving Badly: What’s up with those bricks, officers?

Sam Seder and Nomiki Konst break down a weird phenomenon: Bricks appearing in the middle of various cities during protests, with no construction sites nearby. The mystery was apparently solved by an anonymous videographer who happened to catch something going on just below their window in Boston:

So it appears that cops are planting truckloads of bricks for protesters — or “protesters” (note the quotes, there for a reason). To do what with? Throw ’em through windows, presumably. So the cops have a pretext to arrest people they might otherwise have to leave alone because they’re not doing anything wrong.

Hey, if it works with drugs, it must work just as well with building materials, right?
