Welcome to the nightmare that might NEVER end and the stupidity that created this ongoing mess in Ferguson, Missouri. The local authorities have turned a tragedy into a powderkeg of violence, anger, race, culture and politics fed by ALL levels of government...more than a week after the shooting of an unarmed young African'American teen by a white cop, the only thing we know for sure is that Michael Brown was shot 6 times and is dead. Local authorities have tainted the situation by releasing a video of the teen strong-arming a store for $48 worth of Swisher Sweets further fueling the fire of hatred that the community is harboring for the 94% white police force in a 67% African-American community and undermining the efforts of the African-American Highway Patrol captain charged with cleaning up the mess created by the local white chief of police. Who needs Iraq when you've got Ferguson and who knows where next. No folks, this ain't about Ferguson; its about politics, poverty, income inequality, police militarization, basic rights and RACE. If it was just race then it would be easy, but with an entire disenfranchised population live on the edge of society at a level of dispair and dispartity not seen since the Guilded Age of the 1880's and 90's. The world may be in a mess, but we are too.
