Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters.

“When it started raining and lightning and the crowd didn’t disperse, my energy level shot up,” said Kwame Thompson, an attorney in Atlanta and St. Louis. “It was a peaceful demonstration that was against police brutality and in support of Mike Brown and his family.”

This feels unprecedented.

"There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state. The other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people." .. (Commander Adama, Battlestar Galactica)

When Hitler’s tyranny threatened the world, we did not hear very much about how immoral it is to meet violence with violence. Even the Christian church was willing to ‘Praise the Lord and Pass The Ammunition,’ and by doing so we all stayed free.

Nonviolence is a very potent weapon when the opponent is civilized, but nonviolence is no repellent for a sadist.

Negroes must be willing to defend themselves, their women, their children and their homes. Nowhere in the annals of history does the record show a people delivered from bondage by patience alone.

"Police Bastard" - DOOM.

Big brother’s watching you.
Everything you say and do.
Police.
Police bastards.
Living in the shadow
Of their uniform fear.
Police.
Police bastards.

" You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation… and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else. "
