Over the weekend, I finally got to watch Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. All in all, I thought it was a good movie; much better than Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. It had a more exciting plot.
However, this isn’t a review. I couldn’t help but notice something in a particular scene. Grindelwald was leading a meeting with his followers in France, I think, and of course the English Ministry of Magic was there to ambush and arrest him and his followers. It happened so fast it’s a blur, but what happened next went down something like this: the Ministry was in the crowd, anticipating the gathering’s behavior, when one of Grindelwald’s followers happened to look at an Auror. The Auror subsequently killed her. It seemed like one of those situations where the police are just lying in wait for action, and then someone looks at them funny or something and they fire their weapons, and all hell breaks loose. It seemed like the wizarding equivalent of racial profiling.
