When The Media Treats White Suspects And Killers Better Than Black Victims

On the afternoon of Aug. 9, a police officer fatally shot an unarmed, black teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri. Details remain in dispute. Eyewitnesses have said that Brown was compliant with police and was shot while he had his hands up. Police maintain that the 18-year-old had assaulted an officer and was reaching for the officer’s gun.

"Eagles don’t flock." - Ross Perot. If you can’t reach the places you want to go, maybe it’s time to stop following other people and follow your own path. Create you own path, take your own risks in order to do the things others can only dream of. Don’t flock.
