Alexander Reid Ross: Liar

Writing in Counterpunch:
With the police behavior in Ferguson—assaulting crowds, killing people, spreading misinformation, and making false arrests—as well as the response from hate groups like the KKK, the riots in Ferguson, which began with peaceful protests until the police reacted with brutality, threatens to become another putsch; a historic victory for the revanchist right wing and the undoing of the Civil Rights Act of 1965, just as Wilmington was part of the undoing of the Civil Rights Act of 1875 that found its keystone in Plessy v. Ferguson.
Anyone who has been following the actual events in Ferguson knows full well that the riots in Ferguson did not start with police "brutality". The stores that were looted were done because the folks who wanted to did so and the police were explicitly told to stand down and let it happen.

Alexander is yet another person who believes that it is always the fault of someone else for the behaviors of certain people.
