I wonder what would happen if there was a protest, where the protesters bring nothing. No signs on wood that could potentially be a weapon, nothing. What would happen if they just massed together in silence and just stood there. No screaming, no violent intent.
I wonder what the police would do.
This whole Ferguson thing has created an interesting movement. It’s spawned a nation wide realization that maybe the police are not here to “protect and serve” as they so modestly display on their cars. Maybe these police forces are not here to help the struggling citizen. Maybe they are only here protect the interests of the government, corporations, and the property of these two institutions.
No maybe about it! By the way, here in Fort Worth they have “Zero Tolerance” on their police cars. They should just have “Anal Retentive and Armed” as their slogan.
