The question 'who is the victim?' is an important social directive that shapes the struggles for victimhood in which Black Lives Matters, U.S. police forces and their various (counter)publics are currently engaging. This column begins with a controversial FBI report on so-called Black Identity Extremists and their aggressions against police, and continues with some observations on victimhood and the central role it plays in the public relations of police.
