For all the liberals saying that the shit in Ferguson is going off because the police are so militarised, you have it backwards.
The police are so militarised because the American ruling class has been preparing for shit like this.
They are arming themselves for a civil war, because they know that people can only take so much exploitation and violence before they rise up.

Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone
"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here.
So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowicz.
In her school hearing, Sulkowicz had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”
"Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused."
FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST
- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus.
- When she went to the police, one officer said: “You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”
- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bull——,” he added. “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”
I want to set literally everything on fire.
“You hear whites talk about “Well, [slavery] was back there. We don’t have anything to do with that anymore.” And it’s an amazing situation because you have to remind them that you are still living off the interest of the wealth that your forefathers earned from slavery. You are still enjoying the accumulated wealth that began with the enslavement of our people. And if you are going to enjoy the wealth that was generated by evil, then you must take the curse that comes along with it. And therefore, because you have received stolen goods you must pay the price as well; because you fight and struggle to protect those stolen goods, and you defend them, and you organize your society and your relationship to our people to maintain them and to continue to enhance them.”
