"Black Lives Matter" demonstrations on Ferguson anniversary; apparent incidents last night in MO
The “Black Lives Matter” demonstration in Cambridge, MA Sunday afternoon was brief and peaceful, if vocal. Police behaved well and firmly.
But there was a major incident in Ferguson MO Sunday night, several events, evolving story here.
Later, I’ll come back to the question as to whether Ferguson is the best case for this issue.
I was in discussions this weekend over Gode Davis’s unfinished film “American Lynching”. It seems as though the focus of the film was to be “extra-legal violence” and social approval of it. It wasn’t limited to race issues. It has many other contexts, which the Left as well as Right use, for expropriation. More details to come.
