“HANDS UP! DON’T SHOOT!”

WARNING: I’m going to talk politics, civil rights, racism, police brutality, abuse of power, abuse of power under color of authority, murder, First Amendment, and personal freedom in this post. If you don’t like it. Don’t read it.

GRAPHIC IMAGE! African-American Teenager Michael Brown Killed by Caucasian Police Officer in Ferguson, Missouri. (Do you think this image should be censored on CNN?)

All men (and women) are created equal.
The Constitution, the First Amendment and Personal Freedom are under attack!

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” – the Preamble of the Constitution

Unarmed Man v. St. Louis County Police: “Hands Up! Don’t Shoot!” Ferguson, Missouri 2014

I learned from the last presidential election, that sharing politics on the internet is a good way to lose “friends” and “followers” who might not align with the politics that are shared.

However, as I followed the events in Ferguson, Missouri yesterday and into the night, I was left asking WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

After 50 years – Progress? St. Louis County Police in Ferguson, Missouri v. unarmed protesters

I watched racist police in camouflage uniforms and body armor attack unarmed protesters and journalists. They were teargassed, fired at with rubber bullets, attacked with high tech military weapons, intimidated by heavily armed police, assaulted and arrested for recording the strong-arm tactics and activities of law enforcement.

Missouri and St. Louis County, your police stormtrooper tactics are a national disgrace!

From the Washington Post: reporter-wesley-lowery-gives-account-of-his-arrest: “As they took me into custody, the officers slammed me into a soda machine, at one point setting off the Coke dispenser. They put plastic cuffs on me, then they led me out the door.”

The mainstream television news media was absent and the reports from network news was skewed, twisted and voiced without knowledge of the actual facts. Only MSNBC was present on the scene and providing live coverage. While the network morning shows were featuring weather, traffic, diet advice and Anne Hathaway and CNN and FOX were bending the truth, MSNBC was providing a factual accounting of POLICE ABUSE IN AMERICA.

And while journalists were ordered out of the area, attacked, assaulted and arrested, reports and video were coming in real time on Twitter and Livestream showing the truth.

The iPhone is mightier than the corporate news media! Thank you MSNBC and Twitter.
