Ferguson is every city USA because racism and white privilege are everywhere and our mostly white militarized police departments behave like an occupation army itching to kill anyone who steps out of line, especially if they have dark skin.
Darren Wilson lost his temper because Dorian Johnson and Michael Brown did not immediately obey his command to get on the sidewalk. He put his vehicle in reverse and cut them off, nearly running them over, and then he swung his door open hitting them.
Michael Brown shoved the door back, just as I might have done in a flash of anger, if I had been in his situation.
Wilson could not handle such disrespect, so he grabbed Michael’s shirt with his left hand and reached for his gun with his right hand.
With good reason considering the epidemic of police harassment and killings of people of color, Michael attempted to prevent Wilson from shooting him.
But Wilson was determined to kill him and nothing was going to stop him.
The demon he described was his own racist self that he projected onto Michael Brown, demonizing him to justify taking a life.
And he has no regrets, none whatsoever, because no black kid is going to get away with challenging his authority.
Darren Wilson is a racist psychopath with a badge.
Ferguson happened a week ago in a park in Cleveland when a rookie cop murdered a black 12-year-old kid.
Ferguson happened on Staten Island when a cop psychopath murdered Eric Garner by choking him to death as other cops restrained him.
The real terrorists in this country are the militarized police departments and the psychopaths with badges.
No place is safe. No place at all.
And if you think you are safe because you are white, think again.
Think twice before you call 911.
It could be the last call you ever make.
