UPDATES August 13: De facto militarized police, armed with military weapons, stepped up racist class war on the black community of Ferguson, as details and testimonies about their intent in murdering 18 year old Mike Brown keep pouring from witnesses and residents.

Image


Police have arrested two journalists, Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post and Ryan J. Reilly of the Huffington Post, because they were posting messages on twitter about the police repression, happening nearby:

“Lowery and Reilly tweeted that they were in a McDonald’s near a demonstration when police came inside and asked patrons to leave. “Officers slammed me into a fountain soda machine because I was confused about which door they were asking me to walk out of,” Lowery tweeted after his release. “Was waiting to be taken away, large black man SCREAMING for help in back of police truck. They refused his calls for paramedics. ‘I’m dying. I’m dying. Please call help’ he screamed. They mocked him.” Lowery said he was released without paperwork or explanation.”


Al Jazeera crew were also attacked with tear gas by police, see video here. These attacks on journalists are relevant when put in the context: for hours, a right wing outlet was the only one allowed to live stream from Ferguson.


Things like this make me sad for my daughter and what my generation has left for them to fix , ( a system that is broken)

Amerika had its racism troubles in the 60's but those all seem to have been fixed BUT they never were,
an now its coming back

I think most cops are assholes, which leads to these cases of their abuse of power. Those statistics are pretty scary, whichever way you read them.

Follow up inn the New Yorker, a respected magazine,


.....The sentiment underlying the shock—that the United States should be better, that we have a Constitution that protects its citizens from violent excesses, that an unarmed young man ought to be able to live through an encounter with a police officer—seems almost precious, when one considers the country’s racial history. .....

The USA has lost it's way in more ways than one.

And it's not going to get any better. Had early hope for Obama -- which proved for nothing.

Next Election it is Hilary Vs Whatever Right Wing Nut Job Sheldon Adelson chooses.

God help the USA.

The FAA has shut down the airspace above Ferguson to prevent air surveillance from the press.

Assholes.
