the news coming out of ferguson rn shouldn’t tell you there are “good cops”. a good cop would be standing on every platform they have shouting for at the very least charges to be brought against every cop in ferguson. that’s not happening, though, is it? no. what they are interested in is “marching with” the protesters. making them feel they’re “heard”. pacifying the situation.
what the news coming out of ferguson should tell you - that the protesters immediately marched with those cops anyway in the name of no more violence, that the so-called “riots” immediately ceased at the first sign of official support for their grief, however minimal the effort was - is that the people of ferguson are not the perpetrators of violence in this situation, and they never were, and they do not want to be.
the protesters - they want peace. the cops don’t want peace to come out of this situation. they want control. always, always remember that there is a difference.
imagine a police force accountable to the community, though - you won’t be imagining an american one.
