Literally moments ago, we were contacted by one of our loyal readers, supports, and Oh Ish writers, @curt_harris who happens to be in St. Louis, Missouri and witnessed some of the things that we have been hearing about the Michael Brown incident. @curt_harris informed us that the protest is actually very peaceful, people are really coming together to be heard and have justice served. According to several media outlets, there’s complete madness happening in Missouri and it’s portraying black people in a negative way and are behaving like “a bunch of wild animals” who don’t know how to come together in a time of need. That is NOT true. We have a video that shows something that many media outlets aren’t showing, African-Americans coming together peacefully…while at least for now. We were told that the police came out and are confronting the peaceful protestors. We will keep you all update as we receive more information.
Update: Update: West florissant ave is locked down. Police controlling traffic with assault rifles drawn. It’s a whole bunch of people still out but they not on the strip. So basically it’s like a passive standoff.
Here’s a actually letter being distributed by protestors:
