Are the protests in Ferguson winding down?

The coverage is waning. The number of protesters is dwindling, as are the number of arrests and reports of lawlessness. Will everything blow over until the 2015 summer TV trial of Officer Wilson?

1. You wish.

This is only just beggining, until justice is seen it can not stop.

2. The protests may die down but we are doing everything we can to make sure every

 

person there is registered to vote and votes

Which means the local officials will make it has hard as possible for them to vote, but to me my vote is worth fighting and dying for.

3. Let's be honest. Americans are not known for our attention spans.

 

Hands up! Don't shoot! Hands up! Don't shoot! Hands up! Don.... Hey, when is the new Kardashian season starting?

I wish folks would keep the protests going until change is achieved but it seems like that isn't happening.

4. We still haven't forgotten the way the racists smeared Trayvon Martin

We won't forget how the racists are smearing Brown and Powell either, there is a long battle ahead.

6. It is one in a billion to find that one thing that really self sustains over a longer period of time

 

Outrage of the most recent incident... shot down planes, invasion, shootings, kidnappings, policy etc.. etc.. etc... always wanes and most folks who are in the hot seat at the upper levels of power are keenly aware of that fact.

Hold fast until the storm blows over and then deal with it or not...

Hello VA scandal.... I'm talking to you...

8. Having Holder talk to them had a positive effect

The only reason it looks like it's winding down is that it got rained out last night.

At least Nixon caught a clue and called the Guard back out. That should help.

9. With no grand jury decision until October

There will eventually be sporadic mainstream coverage at best after another week or so. A trial will bring it back to the front page though but that's potentially January at the earliest with no delays.

11. The street protests are winding down

 

But the protests around the US are just winding up.

Just today we found out the damn cop didn't file an incident report. They say. The truth probably is more like they are covering up the incident and scratched any report.

The whole PD of Ferguson is under the gun and the Truth is leaking out because of the street protests. The street protests have been a HUGE success. They have many, many people now paying close attention to all Ferguson.

The street protests did the job, and now we are all so much on the case that the people of Ferguson are no longer alone in their struggle for Justice.

I for one am proud of the people's protests. The protests are a great success. Take a bow Ferguson protestors! You got our attention and that is what you wanted.
