Ferguson Update

[TRIGGER WARNING: HOMICIDE, GUN VIOLENCE, POLICE BRUTALITY]

Ferguson is not only still going, things are heating up. This weekend is a huge weekend of action in Ferguson and St. Louis. They're asking that people come to the area to help protest, and they have been filling the streets with protesters all week.

The tragedies are far from over, however. Another unarmed black teenager was gunned down by police in St. Louis. The police report claimed the youth "opened fire." Witnesses say the kid was armed with a fucking sandwich. I know who I believe, based on the history of police honesty. Ha.

His name was Vonderrick Myers.

The thing is, even if Myers did have a gun and fired at the officer, the cop returned fire with 16 shots. 16. And he killed Myers. Yet another example of police somehow failing to detail a black suspect without killing them, while they always seem to be able to capture white suspects alive.

This is not a coincidence.

Brace for the smear campaign.
