Ferguson isn’t about black rage against cops. It’s white rage against progress.

Police_Shooting

When we look back on what happened in Ferguson, Mo., during the summer of 2014, it will be easy to think of it as yet one more episode of black rage ignited by yet another police killing of an unarmed African American male. But that has it precisely backward. What we’ve actually seen is the latest outbreak of white rage. Sure, it is cloaked in the niceties of law and order, but it is rage nonetheless.

Description

Police street stops and searches of Missourians have increased exponentially – especially in the context of rallies, peaceful protests, and marches against excessive force and racial profiling.

Thousands of innocent people are routinely stopped, searched, harassed, bullied into compliance, and humiliated every year in Missouri. It’s not a crime to walk down the street, to peacefully protest, to march, to rally, or to simply gather with a group of peers on a sidewalk, yet every day innocent black and brown Missourians are turned into suspects for doing just that.

ACLU of Missouri Mobile Justice, modeled after the NYCLU “Stop and Frisk” app and developed by Quadrant 2, is one way to hold Missouri Law Enforcement Agencies accountable for their actions.

If you see something, say something by using ACLU of Missouri Mobile Justice to document the police interactions you see. For more information visit http://www.aclu-mo.org/mobile-justice.

HOW TO USE THE APP

To Record:

Simply hold down the camera button on the outside of your phone, or open the app and hit the record button at the top of the screen and the application will use your phone’s camera to record both audio and video. To stop recording, simply shake the phone or manually press the ‘click to stop’ button. This video is automatically sent to the ACLU of Missouri as soon as you stop recording.

After each recording you will be prompted to fill out a short incident report. You can bypass the incident report by simply pressing cancel; however, we encourage you to fill it out so we can learn more about what you saw. Required fields in the incident report are marked ‘required.’ If you are unsure of the information asked in the incident report, simply mark ‘unsure’. Finally, press the ‘submit the incident report button’ to send your incident report to the ACLU of Missouri.

To Witness:

This feature allows you to know if people around you are getting stopped by the police. When others in your area use Mobile Justice, you will get a message reporting where the police stop is happening. If the dot is green, it means the ‘witness’ feature is activated. If the dot is red it means the ‘witness’ feature is not activated and you will not receive reports on where police activity is happening. This feature is especially useful for community groups who monitor police activity. Be sure to go to “my settings” to turn on “broadcast my location” in order for the ‘witness’ function to operate.

To Report:
This function allows you to access the incident report. You can use this function to report a police interaction you saw or experienced, even if you didn’t film it. Be sure to hit the ‘submit’ incident report button so that your responses are sent to the ACLU of Missouri.

Suspended St. Louis Police Officer: “I’m Into Diversity, I Kill Everybody”

“I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord and savior, but I’m also a killer,” said officer Dan Page, a 35-year veteran, in the video. “I’ve killed a lot. And if I need to, I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me. I have no problems with it. God did not raise me to be a coward.”

Page added, “I’m into diversity — I kill everybody. I don’t care.”

Anonymous Announces “Day of Rage” – Ferguson Protest
Posted By Fred Touchette

AnonThe infamous hacking group known as Anonymous today announced a National Day of Rage in protest of the current situation in Ferguson Missouri. Currently all media outlets are buzzing with constant updates on the state of affairs around this small St. Louis suburb. Many in Ferguson have been in protest over the shooting and killing of an unarmed black teen by a white police officer since it occurred on Saturday August 9th, while others, let’s call them opportunists, have decided this would be a good time for looting everything in sight. All of the chaos and racial division has forced others to stay locked in their homes out of fear and for their own safety. Nightly protesters have gathered while the police force face them in what looks to be nothing short of a stand-off with an imaginary line drawn between the two. Also nightly, things eventually get out of hand when the crowd is deemed to be assembled illegally and dispersed with rubber bullets, acoustic cannons, flash grenades and tear gas.

It now seems that Anonymous wants to join in the fight. Well known for a long laundry list of hacktivism, including a strong showing in the quasi-recent Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011, protests against Westboro Baptist Church, and Operation Tunisia in support of the Arab Spring movement. In addition to these, Anonymous has also had a hand in attacks against Sony resulting in over 100 million accounts being compromised in that same year as well as attacks against the US Department of Justice and the New York Stock Exchange. The internet has always been the weapon of choice for this group whether it be calling people to action by assembling in protest, or using it to disable websites leveraging some sort of SQL Injection flaw, with the reach of the world-wide web they are able to wield a large amount of power in the name of their causes.

They often like to input their brand into highly polarizing world events such as the one happening now in Ferguson. This is an event that has a lot of people up in arms and Anon agrees. They have announced a “National Day of Rage” this Thursday August 21st in order to protest the events in Ferguson. According to their YouTube channel and video on the subject “This is another collective peaceful day of rage. Rage with voices, not with violence.” and the video calls for “Justice against police brutality“.

Shooting Death of Michael Brown 23rd and Union Protest and Rally

The shooting of Michael Brown occurred on August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri, United States. Brown was an 18-year-old African-American man who died after being shot multiple times by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Brown was unarmed and had no history of arrests or criminal convictions. According to Ferguson police, Brown was a suspect in a robbery minutes before the shooting, although the initial contact between Wilson and Brown was unrelated to the robbery.

Wilson has served four years with the Ferguson Police Department, two years with another local police department, and had no disciplinary history with an award for “extraordinary effort in the line of duty”.

The incident sparked reactions within the St. Louis suburb and at the national level, including peaceful demonstrations and protests, acts of vandalism and other forms of social unrest,as well as national calls for an investigation. Widespread media coverage explored the question of local police departments arming themselves with “military-grade weapons” and responding in a military fashion when dealing with protesting civilians and journalists covering volatile current events.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) opened a civil rights investigation of the shooting. U.S. President Barack Obama issued a statement expressing condolences to Brown’s family and committed the U.S. Department of Justice to conduct an investigation.

On August 16, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and implemented a midnight to 5 a.m. curfew in Ferguson.
