    Today in Ferguson

    While the coverage at night seems to get a constant stream, I feel it only fair to my city to show the humanity and peace that happens during the day. People helping people. People peacefully protesting for justice and still being asked to move when gathering in small groups. If we walk we can stay, if we stop and speak with each other or pray with each other or comfort another that is overwhelmed, we are threatened to be taken to jail. With this type of "justice" during the day, in a peaceful setting, people become fueled by the evening hours. Most go home but thugs stay out. Thugs stay out even when the National Guard and Highway Patrol are not sitting on every single street corner but that is all the world sees is a constant stream of thugs that we don't want running the streets of our community either but there is a process for EVERYONE when they commit a crime, police officers included. This is not an evil city full of thugs and looters, some of us have multiple degrees, work everyday and enjoy our lives until it is disrupted by crime, civilian crimes and sworn officer crimes. WE ARE FERGUSON
