"After dark on Monday, police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. The ironies of race and policing were readily apparent: law enforcement using force to suppress outrage at law enforcement’s indiscriminate use of force."

Jelani Cobb reflects on the violence in Ferguson in the wake of Michael Brown’s death.  Via 1109-83
