Ferguson, Missouri:
Militarized Police?
Police Brutality?

August, 2014:

I find myself bemused with the national discussion and concern
about militarized police and police brutality in Ferguson, MO.

It was vividly, and widely, evident during the Occupy movement.
Were only Occupiers paying attention?

In fact, some people didn't understand Occupy.
Some (primarily right-wingers) hated it.
Corporate media wasn't about to cover it in depth.
"Militarized" police were simply ignored.
Some undoubtedly cheered as Occupiers were attacked.

A few pictures follow.

Occupy police brutality was overlooked and/or forgotten,
undoubtedly so will be the Ferguson police action.

You inspired hope.

It's too bad you couldn't get your act together.

Breaking Up With Occupy
On its second anniversary, a sense of failure pervades the
Occupy movement, as many core activists have moved on
with their lives. But was it really all for naught?
