"

A country where unarmed black boys are slaughtered by police who will blame said black boy for his own death while telling the family and friends to mourn at appropriate levels so law enforcement wont feel threatened.

What is America?

It’s embarrassing but this is exactly what the police are saying. Legitimate concern or anger over wrongful deaths and disproportionate shows of force must be further moderated in order to not ensure that the people aren’t similarly brutalized by now intimidated police forces. What a world.

Days after Michael Brown’s death, Ferguson looks like a war zone

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.

Years of tension have reached a boiling point
