I know it is not the first time this has ever happened, but it is probably the first time it happened to Michael Brown's family and it is reprehensible. That poor child and his poor, grieving family.
If you are a police officer in Ferguson, Walk Away. Don't participate in the violence, don't participate in the cover-up and media blackout.
Better yet - tell your colleagues to stop. Help people. Don't become this.
*****Update**** - It looks like Missouri State Troopers have taken control from the Ferguson police. Hopefully, things may improve.
