Ferguson: Riot double-standard, smoke & mirrors grand jury, activists demand accountability

Abby Martin discusses the coverage of the Ferguson protests following the news that Officer Darren Wilson won’t be indicted for the killing of teenager Michael Brown, and how it compares to the portrayal of riots over sports events and festivals. RT’s Alexey Yaroshevsky talks about the mood of the community following a night of both peaceful protest and destruction. Two activists on the ground in Ferguson, Zaki Baruti, president of the Universal African People’s Organization and Casandra Fairbanks from the Free Thought Project, say what the mainstream media has missed in its coverage. The use of tear gas on protesters, despite the fact that it’s an internationally banned chemical weapon. Finally, the legal aspects of the case with attorney and co-host of Ring of Fire radio, Mike Papantonio.
