Terror in Ferguson
north america / mexico | anti-fascism | news report Wednesday August 20, 2014 17:45 by Denver Anarchist Black Cross
Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.
About 200 residents from the city of Ferguson came together to protest the terror. Amongst them, Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, “I know they killed my son, this was wrong and it was cold-hearted”. She added that her son “doesn’t kill, steal or rob. He doesn’t do any of that.” Also present, Brown’s step father, Louis Head, “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!”. Desuirea Harris, Brown’s grandmother “He didn’t live around here, he came to visit me and they did that to him for no reason.” St. Louis County Prosecutor’s office confirmed that Brown had no prior misdemeanors or felonies against him. He was a 2014 graduate of Normandy High School and was scheduled to begin classes at Vatterott College.
How many more must die?
Once again, an unarmed black teenager has been killed at the hands of racist police. Ferguson is now facing excruciating militarization and oppression, stemming from one incident of everyday police terror. This everyday terror defines the visible war on our communities, the fear that someone will be murdered at any moment. The same police terror took the lives of eleven people in 2012, and twelve people in 2013, Memphis Tennessee. All were unarmed, disabled, or fleeing. Additionally, we witnessed the massive string of 26 killings in Albuquerque since 2010, six unarmed murders in Denver since 2009, and countless others. Where does it end? In Ferguson and many other militarized zones all over the world, continued state violence demonstrates that we only have each other. The state only offers more violence, more oppression, more repression. Institutional racism is the law that this extreme modern policing is enforcing, and always has. Our fight against racist police terror is happening on our streets everyday, and only we can end this war waged against us.
