“I am simply amazed by the adults sitting in safe spaces branding students as violent creatures when every photograph and video shows who’s holding the firearms, the lathis and the tear gas. What perfumed incense are you inhaling that’s making you take leave of your basic senses, let alone your rational thinking? Or do girls wearing head scarves pointing a finger at the cop mercilessly beating up their friend scare you? Can you be any more of a coward in this lifetime?”
