I don’t get why they don’t get it
Like every night protestors come out in Ferguson and march peacefully.
And every night police show up to these peaceful protests of people marching, chanting, and holding hands. And the police show up with semi-automatic rifles, mine-resistant armoured vehicles, and pepper spray. And they claim that the crowds of (mostly) black people are unruly and need to be handled. But they were peacefully protesting before the cops showed up.
And this has happened for like 8 days in a row. And the cops keep claiming that the protestors are getting out of control. When they’re perfectly calm… until the cops show up with pepper spray and semi-automatic rifles and bullet proof vests!
Like every night its like this, and yet they keep showing up with this huge show of force and I’m like you know maybe if you DON’T show up prepared for a fight, a fight won’t happen.
"If you want to know who wants a fight, look at those who show up dressed for one"
