Tonight, in Ferguson, Missouri, United States of America:

Tweet embed of tear gas cloud in Ferguson, MO protest.

Oh, and then a sniper on a tank aimed at me when I tried to ask a question about what roads were open. That happened. #Ferguson
HuffPost reporter on his arrest in #Ferguson: "He slammed my head against the glass purposefully on the way out" http://t.co/...
A Washington Post reporter was also arrested.
Multiple officers grabbed me. I tried to turn my back to them to assist them in arresting me. I dropped the things from my hands.

“My hands are behind my back,” I said. “I’m not resisting. I’m not resisting.” At which point one officer said: “You’re resisting. Stop resisting.”

Ferguson police are insane. All of them. They are far, far gone.
Of the hundreds of RW folks we follow, @toddstarnes is literally the only one tweeting about #Ferguson tonight - all others have been silent
So much about "tyranny" and "jack-booted thugs", huh?
Great point: Occupy was allowed to camp out in public spaces for weeks/months. Why can't these ppl protest at night? #Ferguson
So how many millions will the Ferguson police have to pay out in settlement costs over the next several years? I hope it bleeds those racist fuckers dry.
