Cornel West Arrested In Ferguson
Posted by Michael F.Blackburn Sr. on October 13, 2014
Why are the protesters in Ferguson trying to make a hero out of the criminal Michael Brown Jr. ?
The whole world saw Michael Brown Jr. using force to steal from a store owner.
He grabbed the much smaller man by his shirt and shoved him across the room.
He was a bully, that much we know.
Another young man fired at a police officer in Ferguson, the officer returned fired resulting in the perpetrator’s death.
In our view, using these two criminals as a basis for violence is a huge strategic error and is setting civil rights back.
