This past weekend, the small Missouri town of Ferguson was rocked when 18 year old Michael Brown was gunned down by a police officer. In the days since, questions of racial violence has ignited the citizens of the small town to protest, but this has been met with unimaginable resistance by St. Louis County police.

Last night, things escalated in Ferguson, MO, to a level that should be seen as a national disgrace. It is obvious that the local police force does not know what it’s doing and it is by sheer luck that someone hasn’t been killed.

Ring of Fire’s Mike Papantonio appears on The Thom Hartmann Program to discuss this.
