Ferguson the ideal American city

Ferguson, MO seemed to be doing everything right. They had low voter turnout in every election, the last one around 13%, were investing in "quality of life" issues like biking and walking areas, and were buys electing people with familiar last names like the brother of the current mayor. And they rely on traffic fines to fund the budget. What could possibly go wrong?

Does it have drinkable water?

The number of traffic tickets are disproportionately handed out to blacks in Ferguson? Imagine that. Gosh, think the stats are also out of whack in Toledo?

Patience is a great virtue.

Don't know, but there is the chance that the police will break into your room while you are alone and shoot you in the head because someone claimed that you are out of control.

Zey, it's remarkable how much trouble you don't get into, when you stay out of trouble. Myself, I didn't go into a store today and rob it, stiff-arming the clerk when I left, and then I didn't walk down the middle of the street like an out-of-control zoo escapee, looking to get into a fight with a law enforcement official.

But that's just me: Well behaved. Shit, it may even be genetic. I can't help that I'm well behaved. Perhaps I should seek therapy to find out why.

And I quit smoking cigars. My doctor told me:"those things can kill 'ya".

Did anyone hear about the eleven year old Black Boy who went to his own mailbox to get the mail and the police decided to hog-tie him?
