North Korea Laughs At Ferguson Authorities.

I cannot believe I am going to say this, but North Korea, for the first time, makes sense.The situation in Ferguson, Missouri ignited passion and rightly so; however, the police department handled the tragedy well, like themselves, jackasses. Not to mention the fact, killing Mike Brown wasn't necessary.  It's utterly disgraceful that this country is spiritually impoverished, so much so, they, especially whites, cannot fathom the decades of frustration and mistrust within the black community. The injustice system, lack of education and mediocre opportunity produces a sense of hopelessness. Furthermore, the socioeconomic and opportunistic 'legal system' works against, instead of for the people; especially destitute. Thus, the judicial system adds another slave to the plantation; prison. And, the so-called "thug" culture remains. And, we do not rehabilitate in prison, so individuals come out of prison worse off than when they arrived. After release from prison, the system continues to punish offenders because of legal ramifications of a crime they've already paid for committing. For example, if you commit a felony you cannot get Pell Grants for college, you cannot vote or own a firearm. The judicial system and the sentences if examined are inconsistent with reasonable personal growth; the growth needed to come out of prison a productive, contributing member of society. If North Korea see's the problems of the racist cops, we have a problem. Of which is the result of a larger systemic collapse failure, the war on drugs. The war on drugs is systematic racism at work. Additionally, the way cops forced semi-automatic weapons in the face of protesters says it all, we don't give a damn about you, nor do we respect you. It's odd because I remember a few months back at the Bundy ranch where people pointed weapons at police officers and the officers retreated. Now, keep in mind the people at the protests were unarmed, yet cops abused, arrested and gassed people speaking out against police brutality. Hopefully authorities are arresting those pointing weapons at cops at the Bundy ranch. No, you mean arrests won't take place?  It's only poor people, especially people of color.

“The U.S. is, indeed, a country wantonly violating the human rights where people are subject to discrimination and humiliation due to their races and they are seized with such horror that they do not know when they are shot to death,” the spokesperson continued. “The protests in Ferguson City and other parts of the U.S. are an eruption of the pent-up discontent and resistance of the peop
le against racial discrimination and inequality deeply rooted in the American society.”The statement went on to call for the United States to face trial at a human rights court, echoing other countries’ demands that the leadership in Pyongyang do the same. North Korea has long chafed at reports from the United Nations and other rights bodies documenting the horrors that go on within the country’s borders and used the response to Michael Brown’s shooting to again ask to be left alone. But given that the city of Ferguson is now far quieter than it has been in weeks, with the nightly clashes between heavily-armed police and demonstrators receding into memory, it seems odd that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea waited this long to use the events there as a way to prod Washington. Other countries were more quick on the uptake, seizing the opportunity to dish out the criticism that they’re normally on the receiving end of. Egypt, whose military government killed an estimated 1,150 protesters last year, called for the police in Ferguson to “show restraint” in their actions. The foreign ministry in Moscow, where 60 percent of black and African people said in 2009 that they’d been physically assaulted over their race, chided the U.S. on its race relations and said it “should take care of large-scale internal problems and take effective measures to resolve them.”(1).
