FIGHTING OVER FERGUSON ISN'T FINISHED: NEW DOCUMENTARY REIGNITES PROTESTS OVER MICHAEL BROWN POLICE SHOOTING!!!
Movie promotion and mainstream media fervor could start another series of riots in Missouri and, at least, has served to reopen old woulds.
And here's a brief TKC aside . . .
While I don't want want to see ANYBODY shot and killed . . . I always wondered about this one . . . Despite differences of context, even opponents on this issue agree that the deadly shooting followed an altercation wherein Michael Brown punched a police officer and was killed during the fight. A lot of the protest and frustration was over INCOMPETENT PO'DUNK TOWN AUTHORITIES letting his body decay in the middle of the street nearly all day long in order to "send a message" to the community some argue. Still . . . Here's the only bit of cognitive dissonance that I hope somebody might answer. . . I thought this was a rule: If you punch a cop, there's a very strong likelihood that you'll get shot and killed no matter what you're background???
With the notable exception of Zsa Zsa Gabor, of course.
Those are rules, right??? That's the only part of the protest and rioting that I don't understand . . . Along with the benefit that burning down an innocent QuikTrip and Little Caesars has in advancing social justice.
