Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.
For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.
Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.
People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.
Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”
Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.
SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.
This is the neighborhood next to mine. I have a lot of black friends who live over there and this is NOT OKAY. Please spread this, reblog it, post it anywhere. Don’t let this get brushed off. I dont want any of my friends, or anyone for that matter, to have this happen to them. Racial profiling is sickening. I never really ask anything of my followers, but can you please stop to reblog this? This hits really close to home, both literally and figuratively, and it needs to get out there. We can’t let this happen to anyone else.
