Week 12 Ferguson

Prior to this article i was already upset about the situation in Ferguson. This article only served to increase my outrage. Young black males are dying at an alarming rate by police in this country, and the same theme always comes up. The officers always claim to be threatened and had to react with lethal force. These situations have been happening for decades. When the photographer, Scott Olson made the comparison between Ferguson and Ukraine, he was absolutely right. The police in Ferguson was ¬†beyond heavily armed. Ukraine was going through turmoil as a nation and the authorities weren’t even that prepared for it. It’s so sad to see the police ready for war against its citizens. These riots wont stop unless something is done in the justice system, the more extrajudicial killings done by the police on citizens will only lead to more riots in the streets.
