I wish there was national organizing machine that could set up shop and coordinate all this energy. Of course it would take financial resources, but a central command center fielding a constant stream of communication. I would envision, an internet radio broadcast disseminating information, a platform set up where participants could text XXXX to a number to receive instant text updates on coordination efforts and directions.
This could work, all we need are the right leaders with the resources capable of seeing the big picture.

Anybody thinking about going to Ferguson?
 
Ive been seriously considering going there next week when I get back.
 
I dont want the rallies or the foot support to let up at all.
Feels like this is the start of a revolution.

This is also exposing the classism in the black community and how disconnected the ones who "made it" are from those that haven't. It also shows that even the blacks who have "made it" have no power and are not respected by their white cohorts. 

Black older people spent all of their time perpetuating this myth of "black on black" crime and demeaning those who live in poor areas so much so that they have ostracized themselves. You create a VERY unbalanced narrative when you say "black people do this" but it gives you pause to say what white people do. They have sold themselves by pandering to whites. So NOW those same older black people are trying to 'get control' over the situation and the younger generation they have demeaned are no longer listening.

The guy was saying "Please shoot me" he sounded mentally ill. He stole a pastry. The police here are incompetent.

I heard talk of a grand jury. When are they convening?
That murderous cop should have been arrested by now. This is taking way too long, I'm afraid that some other big headline is gonna come in and overshadow the events in Ferguson. I can't believe they are deploying this much energy to save just one white killer cop.

ding ding ding

you are right JP, they are waiting for a bigger headline. September 11th anniversary is next month. Iraq is having some problems. Israel is being itself and killing Palestinians then blaming them.
Something that matters to white people will happen soon, and then the voices of the blacks will die, and police there will start beating up everyone.


They must be really frustrated that they can't even beat the protestors.

I'm not understanding the goal of the Police

Is it to get the citizens of Ferguson to stop being mad and exercising their rights? Is it to shut them up so more attention is not drawn to them trying to cover this up?

Everything they've done has incited more violence, confrontation and attention

Doesn't make sense
