Meet the pigs assaulting people demanding justice in Ferguson, Missouri. These are long-time police officers with awards, who haven't kept their views secret from anyone.

One was captured on at least two videos pointing a semi-automatic weapon at peaceful protesters in Ferguson and screaming, "I will fucking kill you."

Another posted on social media that Ferguson protesters are "a burden on society," and should be "put down like rabid dogs." He had no compunction about signing these postings with his name and his police department.

Another—who threatened and shoved a CNN reporter in Ferguson on live TV—has had a video up where he is speaking to the fascist Oathkeepers organization—a video viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. In it he threatens, "I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord savior, but I'm also a killer. I've killed a lot. And if I need to, I'll kill a whole bunch more. If you don't want to get killed, don't show up in front of me, it's that simple. I have no problem with it."

These exposures are the tip of an iceberg. They reveal a culture and a mentality of an occupying army, deployed by a ruling class that has a genocidal agenda for Black and Latino people and lashes out ferociously when oppressed people—and others who stand with them—rise up for justice.
