Egypt urges ‘restraint’ in Ferguson
“CAIRO - Egypt on Tuesday urged U.S. authorities to exercise restraint in dealing with racially charged demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri - echoing language Washington used to caution Egypt as it cracked down on Islamist protesters last year. […]
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry’s statement Tuesday on the unrest in Ferguson read similarly to one issued by the U.S. in July 2013, when the White House “urged security forces to exercise maximum restraint and caution” in dealing with demonstrations by Morsi supporters. The ministry added it was “closely following the escalation of protests” in Ferguson, unleashed by the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Human Rights Watch said in a report last week Egyptian security forces systematically used excessive force against Islamist protesters after Morsi was ousted.”

So, the Ferguson cops murdered—yes murdered, as far as all the evidence suggests—a black man. After they shot him they forcibly kept away a nurse who rushed in to help. They released statements that imply that the shooting was justified. They set a business on fire and let it burn (according to one source). They’ve broken the law multiple times—using excess force, not wearing identifying badges, arresting people and the press on trumped up charges, and more. They’ve been recorded on camera making racist statements. They refuse to arrest the cop murder suspect. They fired tear gas at kids. They’re using potentially lethal rubber bullets when they’re not at all needed. And, they give every appearance of trying to provoke a riot.

Now, who the fuck are the lawbreakers here?

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.

remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record

Yet another indication of the unprofessionalism of this cop hut.  Daily these goons with badges are breaking the law and there’s nothing stopping them.

Vile photos show the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border no one is talking about

With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.

According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.

laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into. 

The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”
