Unrest in Ferguson, and the World.

August 9, marks the day of; unrest in Ferguson. Michael Brown, 18 years old, becomes the 29th victim of the police killing spree in America since Trayvon Martin’s death in 2012. Protesters and activists all over the world have seen many of the videos that caught the incident. They are voicing ther opinion, putting America in the hot seat (as they should) and are questioning, why? Which is a great question that America must answer. With all of the footage of America doing dirt, I thank God for technology because it is not easy to keep one’s crimes a secret when the world becomes the witness. They will find it hard to edit, or manipulate, or find typos.  The revolution will not be televised, but it will be recorded live! -Jaleel Pegues

  1. The verdict on this incident aired last night on the news. I sat there eyes on the television, but not watching. I sat there with open ears, but not listening. The choice was a devastating one. I completely disagree with the outcome, simply because of underlining hypocrisy. If the tables were turned, and it was an African American police officer unnecessarily murdering a Caucasian teenage boy (with his future ahead of him) I feel that the verdict would have been completely different.
