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"
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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
