family: listen… liberal hippie trash ….u dont know anything abotu the world….
If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.
But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.
TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD
I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops
Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.
Here’s an article talking about the ban on glass 40s in St Louis and the surrounding areas, btw.
The people coming into Ferguson provoking violence against local protesters, be they opportunist wannabe radicals treating it like a revolutionary fantasy camp or police-planted provocateurs, are horrid and very real.
Never ever ever ever ever forget that the violence being directed at this community is being unilaterally instigated by police in an effort to enforce systematic white supremacy. Do not be distracted by the excuses authorities try to make for themselves.
Reblogging for the link and commentary.
I love black intelligence. Y’all the best I swear

Bruh CNN is on some bullshit. That has never happened before and they the way they “lost” the feed was so fabricated.
Shout out to the man in the editing room. He deserves a promotion.
okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
It’s not rocket science.
Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters.
'Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — "No, you move.”’

DRAG THEM BY THEIR AHISTORICAL POWDERED WIGS
Ferguson Police conveniently forgot to publicly release this part of the footage.
It shows Michael Brown paying for the pack of cigars he supposedly stole.
The officer who murdered Michael did not know he was a ‘suspect of a robbery’, so the tape of him ‘stealing’ the cigars have no relation to the killing.
But this footage is important because it proves that the police are trying to justify Mike’s murder by slandering his character.
Hey, how totally unsurprising!
Maybe there were rude words exchanged, maybe there was like one pack out of all of those that wasn’t paid for, maybe the shove at the door was unnecessary but NONE OF THAT justifies a cop circumventing the entire judicial system and deciding to execute an unarmed man in the street.
As my mom said yesterday, the Aurora shooter had already killed people, the police knew he was armed and dangerous, but they took him ALIVE. Gabrielle Gifford’s shooter killed nine, but he was taken ALIVE. Whenever visibly armed mass shooters end up dead, it’s from shooting themselves; not from the police shooting them.
So what kind of piss-poor cop was this one, that he couldn’t take an UNARMED TEENAGER into custody alive?
A south suburban police officer has been fired after the shooting death of a family dog that has outraged a small community.
Dead dog > dead black kid(s), in case you forgot how completely fucked up American priorities are.
Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.
We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.
No justice, no peace.
An important break in our regularly scheduled programming.
The Howard alumni who was shot in the head made a speedy recovery and she was able to tell her side of the story. The police said that it was a drive by conducted by a group of black men and that it was fatal. They didn’t expect her to survive and talk.
Her name is Mya Aaten-White.
This is unacceptable.
Off-topic but very important. The mods of FYSA would like to express solidarity with the family of Michael Brown, and all other African Americans suffering under white supremacy.
