Video of Peaceful Protesters Gassed in Ferguson, MO

Below is a popular video recorded on Monday night, and posted by reporter Ray Downs of the St. Louis publication Riverfront Times, of a small Ferguson, Missouri protest in someone’s backyard taken by angry residents as they were tear-gassed upon their own property. The protesters are angry over the shooting-death of teenager, Michael Brown Jr., 18, who was shot several times Saturday by an officer as he and a friend walked from a convenience store, who resided in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson. The actions against the slaying of Mr. Brown have been both peaceful, and sometimes not. But the residents here in this video merely heckle the officers and hold their hands in the air, as if surrendering, as a sign of protest which has become the trademark sign for supporters of Mr. Brown.

This is absolutely brilliant due to its effectiveness in reaching those who perpetuate the financial divide in this country.
