Ferguson ‘March For Justice’ Met With Racial Slurs, Display Of Fried Chicken From Darren Wilson Supporters
About 50 activists marching from Ferguson to Jefferson City encountered hostility from Darren Wilson supporters in Rosebud. The protesters were met with racial slurs, a display of fried chicken, a melon and and a 40-ounce beer bottle which had been placed in the street. A Confederate flag flew and racial epithets were shouted, according to the Columbia Missourian. Wilson supporters yelled out “welfare checks” to those marching.
One man showed his support for the KKK while staring down protesters. The man pictured reportedly yelled obscenities at the protesters and told them to “get back to work” while he was clearly not at work.
[su_center_ad]The ugly display was caught on video.
One witness observed a boy approximately 8-years-old holding a sign that read, “Go home.”
The window of the buses traveling with the march was shot out. The NAACP titled it the Journey for Justice.
The bullet landed in the windowsill and the outer glass was broken out, according to the driver.
Warning: The language and images are disturbing:
While saying they support law enforcement these are likely the same people who supported Cliven Bundy’s militia supporters who aimed rifles at federal agents.
If you’re traveling through Missouri, I suggest driving around Rosebud, not through it.
