I haven’t written much at all on the Ferguson protest movement, but I have been following it (and supporting it) closely since August.
The violent deaths of two police officers in NYC last night is nothing short of a tragedy. I extend my sincerest condolences to their families and coworkers. Losing a friend, colleague, or loved one to violence is terrible, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
But please, if you genuinely think that the protest movement “caused” this man to shoot his girlfriend, shoot two police officers, and then shoot himself – you are misinformed as to what the movement is about.
No one wants more violence, or worse, senseless deaths – on either side.
