Why can people not follow directions from the police?

Ferguson, yes I have views too

So the world has been watching to see where this went. Before I begin, I was not there, nor was I in the grand jury, so I know only what the public knows. I am in a different camp than Wil Wheaton, and others. I am probably in the minority… Continue reading
