Hands Up Don't Shoot is Ferguson's call to Justice. Justice for Mike Brown. Justice in the courts now and hereafter. Judicial, economic, and social justice is being attacked daily in communities like Ferguson all acorss America. It is the community of Ferguson that have stood up, with hands up and made their mark as the thumbprint of what an America of equality should look like. Ferguson asks for Justice in the courts, Justice in employment opportunities, pay, benefits, and social justice with adequate representation in community services like policing, boards, legislators. Social equality must be reflected in schools, housing, medical institutions, roads and grant and loan opportunities from community banking to grow community businesses.
Ferguson residents who critized the non arrest of the shooter has been treated as terrorists. Ferguson residents who supports the shooter has been treated as all American citizens should be treated. Police departments from several areas participated in a practice exercise on use of warfare equipment against those who object to a live being taken with no arrest. The draw down on American citizens was absolutely unnecessary. It was extreme, war like, and I have not doubt that community will need therapy for years to come. Those actions have been internalized and will show up in the daily lives of the community of Ferguson if not across America. America must take this hands up symbol as a surrender to completely repair what ails this country. The remnants of slavery that has embedded itself socially, economically and in the judicial system

Hands up, don't shoot! it is a call to bring out the tanks now?

What does Ferguson police officers want from it's citizens.
There has to be something that is worse to Ferguson police department than taking the life of an unarmed man who begged for his life.
There has to be more than Ferguson involved in the goings on we are witnessing in Ferguson today.
Ferguson police department looks as if they are angry. Strange how nothing happens until they show up.
Think about it. Ferguson could be planting people in the crowd.
Mainstream media is dancing around issues and releasing images to frame the people of Ferguson, MO as anything but what they really are, a community that is tired of systematic and generational racism and abuse.
A Gurlz Guide On-Air sat down with Aryka Chapman as she and her good friend Tiffany Flowers returned from their trip to Ferguson, MO on a relief mission to bring aid to protesters.
We talked about what she saw, how they were able to help, who the heroes were that we may never hear about and what we can all do to get involved.
This is the conversation we had.

Michael Brown was fatally shot by a local police officer.
Dorian Johnson said he was standing inches from Brown when the shooting occurred. He gave his account of the shooting.
"The officer is approaching us and as he pulled up on the side of us, he didn't say freeze, halt or anything like we were committing a crime. He said, 'Get the F on the sidewalk.'
After Johnson said the officer thrust open the door of his patrol car, hitting the pair, Johnson said the officer grabbed Brown around the neck and tried to pull him through the window. He said Brown never tried to reach for the officer's weapon.
"The second time he says, 'I'll shoot,' a second later the gun went off and he let go," Johnson said. "That's how we were able to run at the same time. The first car I see, I ducked behind for because I fear for my life. I'm scared. I don't know what's going on. I don't understand why this officer is shooting his weapon at us."
Johnson,says the officer pursued Brown and fired another shot. which struck Brown in the back. He said Brown turned and faced the officer with his hands raised.
"My friend started to tell the officer that he was unarmed and that he could stop shooting (him)," Johnson said. "Before he could get his second sentence out, the officer fired several more shots into his head and chest area. He fell dramatically into the fatal position. I did not hear once he yell freeze, stop or halt. it was just horrible to watch."
