The police response to the citizens of Ferguson are outrageous, not to mention they are violating a plethora of civil rights afforded to us by the Constitution, starting with the 1st Amendment. Who will police the police? Why is this happening in America in 2014? Additionally, I have some questions that need to be answered.
1. Why are the local and state officials silent on the matter?
2. Why did it take a tweet from Gov. Jay Nixon to inform us he was finally going to get involved on the situation?
3. Why does a small-town police force need military-grade weapons including a tank?
4. When will the Ferguson PD release the name of the officer who killed Mike Brown?
5 Will Mike Brown’s family get the justice they deserve?
I pray that justice will be served and questions will be answered for the people of Ferguson. I also urge my generation to get involved in your respected cities and demand change not only in Ferguson but across this country. We owe it to our ancestors.
