Apropos.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/08/08/1320164/-Why-Black-Men-Don-t-Open-Carry#

they should though.  I would like to see a campaign started to arm every single black person in the country, open carry.
we would see some gun control laws pop up all quick like.

I'm all for it. The piece mentions how it was armed Black Panthers that inspired Calif. Gov. Reagan, conservative hero he, to clamp down on public open carry because, guess what, it was freaking people out.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

This is about five miles from my apartment. I'm going down tomorrow because at this point, I have to. I'll be posting on my Twitter @willsalomon for those interested.

Pray for peace, but justice first.
I can only imagine how much I would hate people at an event like 'roo.

Pebbles and marbles, like things on my mind...

Indeed. Be careful.

Personally, I think every American who is outraged at this abridgment of the Constitution (dispersal of non-violent protests, barring of the media) should take to their own neighborhood streets tonight after dark.

So this whole situation is blown up for about 4 days so far....

Ferguson is like a war zone and its pretty much police vs civilians.

When is anyone high up in ST. Louis government, or fuck, Missiouri for this matter going to step in an do ANYTHING? Who is commanding these police? Im surprised by the incompetence and lack of responsibility of the people that were voted into power in that state.
