• Anger after latest police killing of black teen in US

    1

    BERKELEY, United States: Officials scrambled to head off renewed anger on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) after an armed black teenager was shot dead by a white officer in a St Louis suburb, insisting the use of force was justified. The killing took place late on Tuesday at a gas station in Berkeley, near Ferguson, Missouri—ground zero of a new protest movement over police killing of black suspects—and triggered immediate protests. Nationwide protests were sparked after unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was shot dead by a white officer in Ferguson, a mainly African American town with a mostly white police force.

    1. The US is now exhibiting the featues of a fascist state. The police shoot (if black) and ask questions later. Sometimes they don’t even bother to ask questions. The police just rely on the Corporate controlled media to hide their crimes.
