CNN: Why Not Use Water Cannons on Ferguson Protestors?

As we drift into another night of likely arrests and police violence against protestors and journalists in Ferguson, MO a CNN anchor has given us this ethical and historical quandary.

Rosemary Church: “Talk to us about what police are saying to you. Why they are using this strategy? Why the use of tear gas, stun grenades? Why not perhaps use water cannons?”

Watch the video below, but really watch the fantastic understated reaction from her co-host Errol Barnett.

For those of you that aren’t history buffs here’s a reminder of why this might be a bit awkward. And maybe we need to have a national conversation about race… just maybe.

Civil rights protestors are attacked with a water cannon.

    I kinda noticed no matter how much water and how much pressure was used against minorities,their skin color never lightened worth a damn. OTOH they bleed red like everyone else and even that is not enough of a qualifier for equality with many.I think we all know what and where the problem is. Question is,what are we gonna do about it?
