“We criticize dictators for quelling dissent and silencing protestors with tactics like curfews, we’ll certainly speak out when it’s happening in our own backyard. The people of Ferguson have the right to protest peacefully the lack of accountability for Michael Brown’s shooting.”
– Amnesty International USA’s executive director, Steven W. Hawkins

In fact, it has been there for several days now and is quite disturbed by what is happening.
