Why should we have expected things to be any different? The protests in Ferguson, Missouri, over the last week spiraled out of control, thanks to the selfie media and race-baiting agitators like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Now, the funeral of Michael Brown has continued the spectacle.
Outside, vendors were selling “I Survived the Ferguson Riots of 2014” t-shirts, because, why not, right?
What funeral circus would be complete without the Nation of Islam showing up?
