Ferguson protesters chanted, “Hands up, don’t shoot!” Darren Wilson supporters replied, “Shoot!”

Sometimes, there are moments so stark that they have the power to encapsulate an ugly truth in a single frame. This is one such moment.

Today in Saint Louis, around 100 people demonstrated in support of Darren Wilson, the officer who gunned down Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The mostly white crowd gathered at a local watering hole popular with police, held signs and raised money for Wilson. Many suggested Wilson was the victim of a rush to judgement, and some insisted the episode had nothing to do with race, but rather with a police officer doing his job, as evidenced by this gem:

“They are saying it’s murder because a white officer killed a black man,” said Karen Kennedy, who attended the rally with her daughter Katie. “I don’t know where that comes from.”

“Sir, what is going on? Oh my God! You will terrify my children!”

Several outlets are reporting that police in Texas pulled over a woman who had four young children in her car.  They instructed her to exit the vehicle, then placed her under arrest without warning, at gunpoint.

The officers were searching for a beige or tan Toyota with four black males after authorities were alerted a gun was pointed out of the window.

Police pulled over a burgundy red Nissan Maxima driven by Kametra Barbour’s on Aug. 9 that was spotted in the same area as the other car, the station [WFAA] reported.
