Coates on Ferguson


If you’ve been following him on twitter, you’ve waiting for this, which is excellent. No quotes, just read the whole damn thing. Have a stiff drink at the ready.

As the media and general public consume and digest the Justice Department’s report on the Ferguson PD, I very much hope we don’t make the mistake of focusing on the findings regarding Darren Wilson, or on the racist jokes the officers passed around so freely. The story we very badly need to focus on is that the Ferguson PD was, in effect, little more than a legal, open, ongoing conspiracy to expropriate black wealth and redistribute it to white people.
