"You realize that everything the police are doing in Ferguson is carefully calculated, right? They’re purposely turning peaceful protests into riots. They’re purposely committing violence to incite violence. From saying ‘We won’t be answering 911 calls,’ which is a very clever way to set themselves up to be able to say, ‘We were afraid for our safety - any call could really be an ambush, our lives were in danger’ right down to the camouflage and the military tanks and wearing more body armor than a soldier in a war zone. Its exactly why they’re going for a media blackout - yet allowing certain photos through - they WANT you to see their tanks. They want you to see their riot gear. They WANT you to see a war-zone. They’re trying to sell the world the idea that this community is inherently and constantly a source of violence and turmoil - they want you to think that they [the police] are being attacked daily in a place so vicious they need full body armor. You know why? Because then, at the end of the day, you might just be able to believe the story they’re going to spin. They’re going to tell you that this (white) officer goes to work in this war zone every day - that he spends every working moment in constant fear for his life. They’re going to tell you that Michael Brown attacked this officer. And then they’re going to bring up everything that has happened in the aftermath and try to use it to convince you that he shot that little boy because he was afraid for his life. They’re setting up a defense. You mark my words, they’re trying to set up a defense."

My mom’s take on what’s going on in Ferguson (via actualbanshee)

Your mom isn’t wrong. That’s why it’s so important to keep the signal going. Too many are silenced with lies and fear and if they cannot speak then we have to do it for them.

she’s right. and then they gone pick the most out of touch stupidest people in the state to be on the jury.
always under the guise of “objective” “non-bias”. bullshit. why are you so focused on someone whose unbiased. truth has a liberal bias. if they’re putting people on the jury who aren’t familiar with the case… like who the fuck is this person? someone who doesn’t read the fucking newspaper or watch the news? someone who doesn’t use the internet? someone who don’t know what is going on. i don’t want them judging me. they let the cops go free!

Aside from it being a defense in this particular case, it could also be serving as a warning to other communities: don’t bother protesting killer cops, or this is the kind of trouble we can, and will, bring to your neighborhood.
