A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.
But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.
Does this look like serving and or protecting to you?
okay, so just actually look at this shit in the article, first off I’m not here to justify or condemn the shooting, just the post-state of everyone that believes they’re doing right..
So just watch the one one ONE video in the article linked, these people were already rioting and standing on goddamed cars of just who the fuck ever they were blocking, in the middle of what seems to be a rather busy road, so yeah any mass rioting crowd in the street would get fucking tear gassed if they didn’t disperse after warning, which should have been given, and the video was cut. But anyway, that tweeted picture of those boys with phones, again context, it’s in the video that the police were trying to clear the street to make sure people didn’t get fucking hurt, and the whole time they just antagonize the police, repeating the same fucking chant, don’t shoot? Didn’t seem to me anyone was shot with lead, it appears tear gas and rubber bullets at most.
Is there tension? Yes. Is it an area with a lot of crime? Well I can’t know that for sure unless I researched it.
Either way, seems like the people were uncontrolled, now at the church why the riot police were there? Probably because back on the street and all where it happened, people were already protesting and cussing the police, just police there in case people went batshit, yeah.
