    Don't people remember even a few days?

    Captain Ron Johnson, the person this diary is about, is the State Highway Patrol Captain who was put in charge of the Ferguson situation several days ago and who went around hugging protesters and marching with them and saying he was from Ferguson.

    Yes, the police tried to roll out a token black man to be their face to the community, but when it comes down to it Captain Ron Johnson is a cop first and a black man a good distant second.  

    People's willing belief that cops will be on their side because (he's black, they are union, whatever) has been proven wrong time and time and time again.  When the shit hits the fan the cops will be on the side of who pays them and they'll step on the necks of whoever they are pointed at, no matter what color, class, ethnicity.

    Captain Ron Johnson had a whole day of looking like Hero Man.  Now even the few negative articles you see about his actions (like this one) don't make a point to show his face like all the Hero Man articles did during his day of good PR.
