(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)
This is why I hope the people of Ferguson and neighboring areas don’t give in. The police act as if these aren’t real people with a real cause and we should all recognize why by now. It’s just wrong on every level
This was on the news today, are you kidding me?
meanwhile the police fill the block with tear gas. who’s protecting and serving here
There was no tear gas used. The smoke on any footage is from flash bombs. It doesn’t have the same look as tear gas.
The police, however, did hide in an armored truck for quite some time.
I feel like every black body in America needs one of these. I’m not even joking.
Happening NOW: Thousands of New Yorkers are staging a sit-in in the middle of Times Square chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot” to support the people of #Ferguson. Every 28 hours in the US, a person of color is killed by racist police terror. Rest in Peace to Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Rekia Boyd, Oscar Grant, Ramarley Graham, Amadou Diallo and too many more.
YES NYC YES
