CNN Anchor Suggests Police Use Water Cannons Against Ferguson Protesters

August 19th, 2014

Rosemary Church, an anchor for CNN, asked a live guest about the police response to mostly black protesters in Ferguson, MO:

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?

Co-anchor Errol Barnett’s facial expression, which suggests an unspoken reaction, has become an internet meme.

When he questions whether we’re getting value for our money by compensating victims of a literal and cultural genocide how is that not racist? This compensation is the minimum that any government that does this to its citizens is required.

Poilevre is speaking like its so inconvenient to compensate those who had their lives ruined by the Canadian government.

I think First Nations independence and accountability is important but you first have to give people back control over their lives. If you put any other group through a residential school system no one would dare use that kind of language towards the victims.

Speaking of which First Nations communities are hugely underfunded compared to the rest of Canada. This is why their standard of living is so low when compared to the rest of the country.
