Police State USA where the police know they have power to do whatever they like to descendants of slaves, brown immigrants and the homeless and unbalanced. The inevitable revolution will be mainly due to the criminal behaviour of the police force who treat citizens like enemies on the battlefield.
Where are the stats showing how many innocent people have died at the hands of those who are supposed to "serve and protect" the very citizenry they kill? I am willing to bet that on a yearly basis, more innocent people are killed by the police in America than by terrorism or terrorists.

The department actually issued two reports, one that said it won't prosecute a former Ferguson police officer in the shooting death of an unarmed black 18-year-old. However, another report looked into the police department itself.
It found that the shooting occurred in an environment of systematic mistreatment of blacks, in which officials swapped racist emails and jokes without punishment and black residents were disproportionately stopped and searched, fined for petty offences and subjected to excessive police force.
Here are some examples highlighted in the report:

Bus patron: Me? Lieutenant: Get the f*** over here. Yeah, you. Bus patron: Why? What did I do? Lieutenant: Give me your ID. Bus patron: Why? Lieutenant: Stop being a smart ass and give me your ID. The lieutenant ran the man’s name for warrants. Finding none, he returned the ID and said, "Get the hell out of my face." ......
