Cops my eye...

Oh, what joy - I've heard of police riots, but this is the first time I've been "privileged" to watch one over the net.  Those badgeless church robbing gangsters in blue in Ferguson should have already been fired and jailed.  Weren't for them, would be no trouble.  Anyway, I came across this website where the user is attempting to collect all the links to places to help the good citizens of Ferguson.

Meanwhile, Leslie Fish's Same Old Game has been following me around all day, but alas I can't find the song on the net.  I did find the lyrics anyway.  And of course Phil Ochs' Here's To The State of Mississippi.  I hope it's not quite that bad in Mo, but those cops got the idea they could act like they are from somewhere and some of the reports from elsewhere in the St Louis area give me the feeling I fell asleep in the early '60s and dreamed the intervening years.

"It's the same old game, just a different name
You can play it in the stars, or in the mud
For power corrupts and it fills its cups
From the first to the last with innocent blood!"
