Ferguson Riot Police Attacks Peaceful Protest With Sound Cannons, Tear Gas And Less-Lethal Bullets
Another tense night in Ferguson, Missouri happened on Wednesday as St. Louis County Police clashed with protesters. Sound Cannons (LRAD), rubber & wooden bullets, smoke grenades, and tear gas canisters, into the crowd. Protesters, angry at law enforcement over the death of Michael Brown, scattered immediately.
The Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) being deloyed in this video is usually used to by the military to deter pirate boats and terrorists at least a quarter mile away. The sound, which can cause permanent hearing loss, causes the body to vibrate, causing pain throughout the body and the ears. (Source)
This is what the people of Ferguson are up against and if you still don’t think that this is a big deal then you need to wake the fuck up
To say that the past few days have been emotionally taxing is to greatly understate and trivialize how hurt & fed up I am with the treatment of people, my people, in this country. 2014 and we’re no further from persecution & slaughter than we were since….ever. Since forever. At what point have we not been given the treatment of a rabid dog? Of subhuman? Of beings undeserving of fair & humane treatment? Of beings deserving of protection?
I am not impressed with your president’s statement regarding the death of an entertainer before that of a boy being senselessly put down by an officer of the law. Or the lack of transparency in the media & by the police. Or the fact that several eyewitnesses have corroborated & confirmed the story that Michael Brown, an 18 year old who was to be furthering his education post-high school as of yesterday, was shot multiple times and ultimately murdered with his hands raised in surrender pleading not to be, for j-walking. Though the media speculated shoplifting or a struggle with the officer, who has YET TO BE NAMED, there is still no justification for the fact that the victim was unarmed (though the pressing of the fact is problematic in & of itself) was executed and left on the cement to stew in a pool of his own blood for hours. Peaceful protests were met by canines and riot gear. The media failed, unsurprisingly to report that. Your president failed, unsurprisingly, to report that.
How many more innocent brown people are to be put on micro-trial & executed by law enforcement before it’s acceptable to be upset? Before it’s acceptable to be angry, stop asking for permission to have change & demand that it be given before there is consequence? I’m not satisfied. I won’t be until there is accountability and reform. We are tired, we angry, and we are well within our right to be.
I can’t see this happen again. I need to do more.
