When did Missouri become an Iron Curtain Country?

News crew tear gassed and their equipment dismantled.

What’s interesting and creepy (to me as a blogger) is that as real journalists are harrassed and intimidated and arrested by the Glorious Democratic Police Army of Ferguson, the reportage depends on private citizen with cellphone, Twitter and Youtube. The problem is that a lot of this is context free images. So the raw date goes out and then is interpreted for us by heavily biased private organization with a huge agenda. The result is not news nor even the “free flow of information”. It’s left wing and right wing sites, with their respective partisan audiences, listening exclusively to what their itching ears want to hear.

I owe the state no presumption of innocence at all. Our Founders certainly did not. The whole purpose of the Bill of Rights is to protect people from a state the Founders assumed would try to get away with tyranny at every turn.
