If you can’t see why Ferguson is the way it is right now, or the shit that’s been causing the shit that you see plastered across Tumblr and Twitter for…what it is, at least a week, then you’ve got problems.

And are most likely part of the problem

bent-edge-represent:

I don’t see the cops doing shit about KKK members attacking civilians in Ferguson. I don’t care what race you are. If you live near Ferguson, go help your fellow humans right now. The police have turned against us, its up to us to save each other now.

philosophy-in-blue:

What I don’t understand is why some force above Ferguson’s police force (feds? Surely the President is aware of the chaos by now) doesn’t come in and stop all this bullshit. Like can someone just tell everybody to stop and then sort this out without tear gas.order these wreckless officers to drop their weapons and handle this more maturely, ..it’s all so awful and I fear for everybody caught up in it, I’m disgusted by the levels of discrimination that still exist in my country. Whatever happened to words,whatever happened to logic and verbal arguments that weren’t bloody and were calm.

brown-likeme:

The recorder than asks the officer what his name is to which he replies “go fuck yourself”.

These are the kinds of people who are currently “policing” Ferguson

"When France Francois (pictured) held up her sign last week at a vigil in Washington, D.C., devoted to the death of Michael Brown and other black people gunned down by cops, she had no idea it would resonate with so many people on social media.

Her sign read, “I CANNOT BELIEVE I STILL HAVE TO PROTEST THIS SHIT!!”

cop was just a complete dick to the VICE news team and tore the “press” patch off Tim’s chest as he tries to FOLLOW POLICE ORDERS AND RETURN TO THE MEDIA AREA.

fucking bullshit

THIS IS WHY NO ONE FUCKING TRUSTS COPS, THEIR FIRST FUCKING ACTION IS TO BE CONFRONTATIONAL.

imnothavinit:

Cops are arresting people, hassling journalists, nothing much has changed

Seriously? Spoken like a true Nazi. Is this America or Nazi occupied Europe? I want the America they taught me about as a kid, when we were free and all men were created equal. 
"They" lied.
