Ghostbusters, revisited

(some spoilers ahead, be warned!)

Lastnight T and I got out of the oppressive heat the city has been enduring and went to see the new Ghostbusters reboot. I had initially been a little leery of it, being a huge fan of the original and its sequel (notice I didn’t have a meltdown over it – internet trolls take note!), but I love the entire cast so I thought at worst I would be seeing a bad movie with a bunch of people I adore, so what’s the harm?

Proud police?

I was thinking about this on the way in today. I'm not sure why the BLM protesters demanded police not be allowed to participate in the Pride parade going forward, I can only think it's due to recent and historical altercations (Global mentions disproportionate carding and the shooting deaths of Andrew Loku and Jermaine Carby, which are obvious points of concern).
