From Washington Square to the Capitol, protesters on Saturday painted graffiti in Salt Lake City to memorialize their complaints.
Here’s a guide to what some of the acronyms and slang mean:
• 12: A reference for police. There are conflicting accounts about where it came from. Some believe it references the police drama “Adam-12” that ran from 1968 to 1975. The 12th Precinct was also the setting for the television comedy “Barney Miller," which appeared from 1975 to 1982.
• ACAB: All cops are bastards.
• BLM: It’s not referring to the Bureau of Land Management but rather Black Lives Matter.
• FTP: The last two words are “the police." The first word is what you think it is.
• GMT: Gets me tight. That last word is slang for angry.
• “I can’t breathe”: The phrase was uttered by Eric Garner before he died in 2014. New York City police had placed Garner in a chokehold. The phrase has been used again in relation to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
