Tell me who the thugs are in this video?! The revolution will be televised!! And here by CNN — not some cellphone camera. Seriously! What is the call for the riot-gear phalanx? Everyone else hiding at home because of a trooper-enforced 10pm curfew save one kid walking in circles with his hands up? Shades of Tiannenmen Square. It’s only a legal police action because martial law is in effect. Poor optics by idiot bully law enforcement.
Oh and that reporter is a total POS smug elitist asshole. He was telling you TV media vultures to disperse, yes — and stop antagonizing the residents/protesters!
Note here is a followup statement from the guy, Joseph Kent. So he is OK post-arrest but this is a mess.
(For more, here’s a backgrounder on Kent written when there were Ferguson solidarity activities in Baltimore in November.)
