From Ferguson, MO

He was pointing his gun at a crowd of singing demonstrators in broad daylight.

Apparently singing presents a "clear and present" danger these days. After all, it isn't allowed in the state capitals of Wisconsin and North Carolina either.

So I guess getting all camoed up and aiming guns at people attending a Church Revival for some comfort and healing makes  sense in the Macho Racist Twilight Zone World police, far too many officials, and plain folks are inhabiting.

There's nothing more dangerous than Church going after all. Certainly not heavily militarized police pointing guns at the people they are suppose to "protect and serve."

Maybe, just maybe, this might help.

Or not.

Or perhaps this.

Because surely, surely, in this perfect white run world, there are no reasons for our children of color, our parents and grandparents of color to be worried, to be afraid.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
