When people rise up against injustice, the police state cracks down harder on any pretext.

Social media has changed so much about the way we live, how we love, and how we get our news. [Apart from all the government spying and corporate data collection, which is handed over to the NSA, CIA, FBI, NSC, or pretty much any government agency that asks for it, social media is nice for being peer-to-peer, or at least appearing to be.]

A tragic  [murder] shooting by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer of an unarmed [black] teenager, Mike Brown, has brought about anger, rioting, shooting, looting, arson, and injuries [by citizens fed up with police state abuses, endemic departmental racism, the hiring of white police-troops carrying assault rifles and deploying SWAT tactics at the slightest provocation  -- or with no provocation at all but just to practice -- to patrol predominantly black  areas in a heavy handed, siege mentality, paramilitary style].

The town of Ferguson has been turned upside down. Yet, the national media is largely silent on the issue. The local Quicktrip has been looted and burned to the ground. Store owners are rushing to their establishments to try to deter the protestors from any further [riot-related] theft and destruction. But CNN is still running stories on the new U.S. war on Iraq, the beautiful “Super Moon,” and [Israeli crimes] in Gaza [which it never fails to blame on the victims of the assaults].

It is said that those that do not learn history are destined to repeat it. There are lessons to be learned on both sides of this tragic and likely racist crime. Perhaps the free flow of information social media facilitates will help us all remember history with enough detail to avoid future riot situations. The national media has been caught asleep at the wheel on this issue... More
(David Lim) Chinese troops are sent in in full military gear to quiet pro-democracy uprising in China's Tiananmen Square by shooting unarmed civilians killing over 800. Most of the world's Chinese have no idea this ever took place thanks to government's clampdown on the media and disinformation campaigns.
