What they won’t show you on CNN tonight: Ferguson residents line a parade of roses down W Florissant, leading to where Mike Brown was taken from this world. #staywoke #powerful #insolidarity
The Pew Research Center also asked about the police response to the protests. Only a third of whites think the police went too far in the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting.
Only a third think armored vehicles rolling down the streets of Ferguson is going too far.
Only a third think police dressed in camouflage (for some inexplicable reason) waving military-grade assault weapons at unarmed civilians is going too far.
Only a third think lobbing tear gas and stun grenades at civilians—the very citizens they’re supposed to protect—is going too far.
Only a third think threatening reporters and calling protestors “f*****g animals” is going too far.
Only a third think treating black civilians like enemy combatants is going too far.
We have a problem. And the problem is that we won’t even accept that there’s a problem.
Civil Rights Movement vs Ferguson Protests
This is terrifying
It’s not about men or women.
Nobody should ever hit anyone.
Nobody should ever rape anyone.
Nobody should ever murder anyone.
Nobody should ever beat anyone.
Nobody should ever threaten anyone.
Nobody should ever insult anyone.
Nobody should ever make anyone uncomfortable.
Nobody should ever touch anyone without their consent.
Nobody should ever steal from anyone.
Nobody should ever humiliate anyone.
