Ferguson, Missouri has been turned into a war zone.
The police use inappropriate force, such as tear gas and rubber bullets, to overwhelm and intimidate residents who are legitimately protesting a police murder of a fellow, unarmed resident.
There is also a “keep moving” rule constantly imposed on residents and journalists on the sidewalks of Ferguson. It is not a real law but nevertheless was and still is constantly spouted by the police. This “rule” is anti the First Amendment and now being challenged by the ACLU.

According to Zac Corrigan in “Militarization of police in America” the Pentagon under the Obama administration is equipping -- OVER-EQUIPPING -- US police departments across the country with former overseas military weaponry and vehicles.

Ready to salute the flag and glorify US militarism?
Ready to celebrate how the original 13 colonies declared independence from King George of England on behalf of civil independence for the collective citizenry when we as a citizenry no longer have power over the sociopathic and heartless policies of our government that reward wealthy fraudsters at home and abroad and let the rest of us Americans twist in the winds of poverty, joblessness, non- or under-insured illnesses, debt, aborted educational opportunities, homelessness, etc.?

“ethnic cleansing - n - the practice of removing or killing people who belong to an ethnic group that is different from the ruling group in a country or region”
“genocide - n- the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political or cultural group”
Was there ethnic hatred at the bottom of the deaths of three innocent Israeli teens recently? A good chance of that.
Is that an excuse for ethnic hatred or politically and militarily empowered acts of mass murder or incarceration, the unleashing of even more of a vendetta program to perpetrate “ethnic cleansing” against an entire Palestinian population? Also a most convenient excuse at the same time to destroy the recent efforts for empowerment and social justice for Palestinians under a hyper-oppressive occupying Israeli governance?
