Episode 51: I Went To Ferguson

August 10, 2014

This is from August 19th, 2014

I (Matt) found myself in St. Louis for a business trip and staying in a hotel staffed nearly entirely by Ferguson residents. Eventually I ended up right at the McDonald’s and Ferguson Market where, as of the writing of this post, much violence has occurred.

I didn’t see any tanks or tear gas as I was there during the middle of the day and things were comparatively tame.

I’m not a journalist. What is in this episode are just my thoughts and experiences along with the thoughts of some Ferguson locals.  This podcast has never really been about news, comics or otherwise. This is no different (though I did find out some very important things that aren’t being reported by the media, Left or Right). Take this for what it is.

Herein also are some pictures and video I took.

“When they broke down the door

and put their guns in the face of your wife and child,
and as they pinned you to the floor
did you say “Officer, I am not resisting you. “
