Fergunson by visaga Fergunson by visaga

EDIT: Some of the commenters seem to be missing the point I'm trying to get across. I drew about the violence against protesters, not the Mike Brown case. Reminded me of the Tiananmen Square incident so I felt an urge to draw about it, regretting my decision to post already.

referenced from and inspired by photographer Samuel Aranda

I really like this piece, it's really moving.

I feel I shouldn't really take sides, but in my opinion he shouldn't have died.

I mean, if he was threatening, did he have a weapon?
Were you in fret of your life, so that gave you the right to shoot him?
Are you proud to wear your uniform, knowing you just starting an uproar?
What ever happened to " You should be considered innocent until it can be proved that you are guilty. If you are accused of a crime, you should always have the right to defend yourself. Nobody has the right to condemn you and punish you for something you have not done."
If he did rob the store, If he did attack you, I can think of many different ways to get him to stop without bloodshed, why did you think it was necessary to kill a young man who was guilty of something that could be resolved in court? 

I feel those questions should be asked to the officer who shot him. 

I hope the officer realizes he in now a murderer, and will forever have a young boy's blood on his hands that will never be removed, but shall forever stain his hands.

I feel humanity has failed when we have to protest about  this telling why this is wrong.

No one should be given the right to kill, from police officer, to a normal person, to any human being on earth.

But to in order justice or peace, it seems we have to kill off the evil or something.

This makes me very upset and I'm trying not to take sides, but this is clearly messed up.

I hadn't heard of the Ferguson incident until now. I just wanted to tell you that here in Athens, Greece, about 6 years ago, a police officer shot a 16 year old (or maybe 17?) for no apparent reason. There was some sort of commotion downtown and eyewitnesses said that the boy was simply hanging out with a couple of friends doing nothing and the police officer turned up out of the blue and started shouting at him because he thought he was involved and then he shot him. He died immediately. The policeman of course denied shooting him (he said he fired a warning shot towards the sky -bear with me here- and the bullet actually fell to the floor, bounced up and pierced the boy's heart) but it was later proved he shot him. While the investigation was still going on, he was free to roam around and serve in the police force.
To this day people still talk about it and protest on the anniversary of his death. That's really strange though because far worse things happen every single day.
