OMG! The police horror stories in
#Ferguson. No surprise at all AG Eric Holder ordered a probe of the entire police department & beyond. Jim Crow will not DIE.
After hearing all of these horror stories, no way the Ferguson police can stay. It’s corrupt from the bottom to the top, all the way to the judge. The entire police force need to be dismantled and start new. Police were terrorizing black citizens. One woman spoke on how she was afraid to live in her own home. It’s so disturbing. Life in Ferguson was like on a plantation. The Mayor is completely tone deaf and not concerned at all about black citizens.
FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) – City leaders in Ferguson, Missouri, confronted demands for reform from an angry crowd on Tuesday night at their first public meeting since last month’s fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen by a white police officer ignited weeks of protests.
The atmosphere was charged from the opening minutes as members of a largely black audience that numbered in the hundreds shouted over remarks by city council members, rising out of their seats and chanting in solidarity.
Crowd members had to pass through metal detectors and security guards to attend the council meeting, held at an area church. Some wore T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Hands Up Don’t Shoot,” a phrase that has become a national rallying cry for activists protesting the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and other acts of what they say are police abuse.
