1. It's what they want - for it to disappear without any change.

'They' being those who support the status quo, the people who talk constantly about 'law and order' and being a 'nation of laws', and completely ignore the fact that our 'legal system' is broken from the ground up, *designed* to return exactly the sort of authoritarian actions and lack of accountability we see the people of Ferguson trying to fight.

We've GOT to break the stranglehold the police have, that lets them simply kill person after person, without facing the same 'justice' as any other killer in the same circumstances. Shootings, chokeholds, tasering, beatings - the police avoid even facing trial several orders of magnitude more often when they're involved in such, and then are almost never convicted even when they do go to trial.
