No Justice, No Peace (2/12/15): The level of incompetence and fuckery amongst officials in Missouri towards Ferguson seems to have no peak. Testifying before a Joint Committee on Government Accountability, Ferguson Mayor James Knowles revealed that the city was left virtually abandoned by the National Guard troops supposedly called in to help the town amid unrest, following the non-indictment of Darren Wilson. Tensions were ratcheted up in the area prior to the decision, and National Guard vehicles were regularly visible on the streets, in what some assumed to be a threat of force. Where were they when called upon to help defend buildings in the city? Outside of peaceful protests on Shaw and Grand, in the city of St Louis, an “up-and-coming” (re: mid-gentrification) neighborhood. #staywoke #farfromover
