[-empyre-] Cyberwar against St Louis / Ferguson

But it was what I wanted to adress the arrogance of a system which feel itself as above any judgement and carry on making people unhappy and frustrated. Why is the US endemic violent? Again compare Isis beheadings with Columbine killed or with the lynched blacks I wrote about showed in the postcards of "Without sanctuary".
The idea you are arrogant and nobody can judge your acts give you  a feeling of total impunity.
The impunity is a cardinal sin is the Nazis in Europe or the Serbs in the Balcony and Israel settlers torching olives or the Israeli army bombing schools in Gaza or it's the white police in Ferguson and my own torturers walking some streets I walk, unjudged, uncontested.

I agree with you but I don't think the grand jury was arrogant; the 
deliberation went on for two days and I think everyone is scared as hell. 
That said, the police are out of control here, there are so many goddamn 
guns on the street - there was an unarmed black shot just three days ago
in NYC in a stairwell! You know who's arrogant? All of us who look at 
these symbols and say - they're out there, they're not us. But at least in 
the U.S. it's all us, we're all arrogant, and racism is so embedded in 
this society that it's a wonder war hasn't broken out here yet. And it 
will I think.
