I see people saying “How can this happen? Isn’t this America?”

Police action at peaceful UC Davis Occupy protest 

Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.

"If you’ve done no wrong, surely the courts will look on you as innocent before proving you guilty."

I can’t even come up with irony for that, because shitstains like this make sure this never REACHES court.

He’s burying himself and hiding becuase he knows, he KNOWS he did wrong. He KNOWS He fucked up.

And he knows that the system that has gone to great lengths to ensure he won’t suffer anything worse than a suspension of ‘being fired’ can’t protect him from people who know his face, his name, and everything else.

Because he knows his face now is more memorized and circulated than Edward Snowden.

And he can’t hide from the fucking world.

Ferguson Officer Byran P Williams, the man who murdered Mike Brown, is comfortably sitting at home changing his facebook name to a cartoon character and going “tee hee no one will find me now!!”

Use his full name as often as possible, make it immediately come up when you google Ferguson or Michael Brown.

Make sure his name is marked in fucking history. They can’t fucking hide anymore.
