Ferguson by MonkeyMonk14 Ferguson by MonkeyMonk14
I Don't think I really have to explain what this piece is about... Normally even when I try I have trouble truly understanding the reasons why something horrible is happening, but these recent events I've been more than aware of and crossed into trying political art. I've done political before and tend to like it slightly more graphic but It's kind of hard to hold back when you have feelings rushing out. Once I gather my thoughts I might create something more readable.

 I'm also not putting a warning on this because I honestly don't want to limmit who views this. I think we can all handle it.

The latest news out of Ferguson is that many of the people that're being arrested
(after trying to instigate the cops) aren't even from that state/city.

IE: These people are attacking the cops and trying to start riots while hiding within
the peaceful protest groups (many protesters are catching on and pointing out these
interlopers to the cops).

Long story short, I'm sad someone died.. but if we're not careful, this will spiral out
of control by people that have an agenda to push.

That is obvious.. the fact that some people want to turn this on the protesters and make them look bad. they are the same kinds of minds and thought processes that fired that shot. the cops want that too, they want a riot!! Because a riot will make them look like they are not over using power, make them look justified. I wish I could say I am amazed at the way the protests haven't turned more violent. I wish i could say i was amazed at the people willing to stand up and protect storefronts and children... but amazed doesn't even begin to describe it.

Partly, though I'm not only saying the instigators are trying to make
the protestors look bad.. but they're also attempting to force police
to react to the attacks.

IE: Record the cops retaliating, but not showing the "instigation".
Thus painting the cops as villains.

Basically, I'm not saying the cops are in the right or that the protesters
are "angels".. but that both sides need to tread carefully.

And I agree with you, It's always a tricky matter. Aside from the cops being in their right.. I don't think they are fully. Events like this should have police there but not at this level.
