They say a picture speaks a 1,000 words. Unarmed protestor in Ferguson and 3 cops in military fatigues and military style "assault rifles" drawn. Militarization of the police force to circumvent the Posse Comitatus Act makes them think and behave as if they are in a war zone. Those on the other side of the barrel start to look like insurgents instead of humans and fellow citizens, particularly in predominately minority neighborhoods. I recently read that 1 Black male is killed by police every 28 hours. After a while everything starts to look like a nail to hammer. #Ferguson#MikeBrown h/t NYT for the photo"
