Ferguson journal, yes, but I implore you read the thoughts of a person that lives by this city.
As a person that lives 20 minutes from this city, let me tell you. The thing ya'll should be worrying about more are the god damn riots going on. Do you know what they are doing? They are burning, pillaging, looting, killing, raping. Yes, they have now resulted to raping for whatever they are trying to prove. I respect the peaceful protesters, yes, but a good majority of Ferguson are NOT those kinds of protesters.
Right after the killing of Michael Brown, the riots instantly happened. A QuikTrip was burned to the ground. What justice does that do. Tell me. You are only enforcing the stereotype of your people, you are making things worse. Where innocent families are in fear because they don't know that when night falls, if their houses will be broken into or burned to the ground. It's pretty scary. Hell, I took the last couple days off school incase anything happens.
I get it, what the officer did was wrong. We all do. Even if Michael Brown did put up a struggle or commit a crime (there is evidence saying he did and did not), no one needs to be shot six times, two in the head. But do not justify your opinion on this matter by burning shit down and raping people. That doesn't do justice, that makes you violent animals.
I have many friends and relatives that live in Ferguson and I hope every second of every day that they are and will be okay. My dad is a Ferguson officer and he is shot at constantly, usually for just taking a stroll. No one knows what actually happened except for the witnesses, and even their words are skewed for their own benefits. For us, what happened is in the past and the true problem is the rioters, so please, instead of getting mad over different opinions, send your thoughts and prayers to those that actually live in Ferguson.
And for all you making journals saying you'll "block/unwatch" people with opinions different than yours, haha, fuck you all. Ya'll don't even know shit probably. Try living here.
