QUOTE: Melissa Harris-Perry: Curtailing The Rights Of Ferguson Citizens

“So Governor Nixon says it is hard to tell among the protestors, at night, who is there to help and who is there to hurt. Given that an unarmed teen was killed by a police officer during the day, and given that the response of the governor was to suspend the First Amendment rights of protestors in the nighttime hours because of the difficulty of telling which ones of them were there to help and which ones to hurt, has there been any discussion about suspending the rights of police officers to carry weapons during the day, because it is difficult to tell which of them are there to help and which of them are there to hurt?” – Melissa Harris-Perry (MHP on MSNBC – 08/17/2014)

That’a a pretty amazing and poignant quote and rhetorical question by Melissa Harris-Perry.
