I'm following what's happening in Ferguson right now, and I'm getting sick to my stomach. Unrestrained use of force, media blackout, ignoring civil rights, reports of martial law being enacted... This is disgusting. The FAA has declared a no-fly zone over Ferguson (which means that there can be no news helicopters), reporters are being jailed, the media has been ordered to leave the city, and the governor of Missouri is MIA. His wife referred to the people protesting as 'feral.' All this because people wanted answers about why an unarmed teenage boy was killed, and then his body left for 4 hours. Disgusting.
