In Ferguson every day and night, protesters seem peaceful enough until police or often-white extremists start intervening. Not that you need anyone to intervene in order to cause trouble in this situation, but many white extremists were removed today for inciting violence, including older communists, "Anonymous" and other actors. White extremists have been photographed throwing gas at police and making molotov cocktails. Police seem even more angry when protesters do nothing. They are looking for an excuse. Today they announced, over the loudspeaker, to stop throwing things at them - this was to reporters streaming live who were doing nothing, and were then gassed and shot at. Saw this on the otherwise horrid Vice stream. "Molotov cocktails" is the police excuse for their own violence every night, but there is no video evidence of any being used.

Rubber bullets are metal on the inside and can cause serious wounding and death. But there were real bullets used tonight, from semi-automatic rifles --

"For safety, I moved backward. As I did, a girl in her late teens/early 20s grabbed my arm … 'Are you leaving? Please don't leave. PLEASE! What if they shoot us? You have to be here to tell people,' she told me and a photographer. On several nights that's been expressed to me: the desperate desire from residents, who assume police will kill them, for media to keep documenting. The fear and desperation in their voices is something I can't shake. Keeps me up, pacing, at night. Replaying in my head." - Wesley Lowery, Washington Post.

Some thoughts on the "evidence" police presented in #Ferguson.
http://wilwheaton.tumblr.com/post/95302 ... eprivilege

An officer told Lillian Guthrie to "go get a job" as she and her son protested Monday. She's a financial analyst.

93% of protesters arrested Monday night NOT from #Ferguson: http://goo.gl/OVWqcg . 27% not residents of #MO.

Footage from Ferguson shows a police officer pointing semiautomatic rifle directly at protesters and press while remarking, “I’m going to f***ing kill you!” Gives his name as "Go Fuck Yourself."
