Don’t forget Ferguson.
every day of the year before november 18th: “is it november 18th yet? is it november 18th yet? is it november 18th? is it? NOVEMBER? 18TH? is it? is it? is it?”
november 18th: silence. nothing but silence. we have all gone. we are lost to the world forever. farewell
the police in ferguson are gonna drag this out as long as possible because they’re smart enough to know that the longer it drags on, the less the media will cover it, the less people will care, and the less they have to be responsible for. they don’t want the conflict to end because if it ended now, there might still be some accountability demanded. they know if they can make it drag on for another week or more, that every day it continues they’re less and less likely to receive any punishment for human rights violations because public interest will continue to drop. they’re tiring out and exhausting any defiance or anger.
