    It has been stated that “more bullets were fired at Michael Brown Jr. than all the cops in Britain fired all last year.” Those with the inclination can possibly verify the exact number of bullets fired by all the bobbies in Britain; either 10 or 11 were fired at Mr. Brown. Ferguson, Mo., is a town of a little over 20,000 people. Britain has around 50 million folks.

    Is Ferguson an anomaly? A town where 67 percent of its population is black and 94 percent of the police force is white. We witnessed a very well-armed police force in action. According to Fox and other news sources, we live in a “post-racist” America. I for one am truly grateful I didn’t witness the “before” picture.
