Ferguson Tory Russell Tells Cops to Keep Calm CNN Don Lemon | Mediaite
Via Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson: Asked by Lemon if he is “urging calm” regardless of the decision, Russell said, “I am urging calm. I’m urging calm for the police officers to not pepper spray me, tear gas me, mace me and shoot rubber bullets.” He added, “People need to urge the police to be calm. Stop hurting kids, stop traumatizing our communities.” Russell went on to remark that everyone is asking Ferguson protesters to stay “calm” but no one is requesting the same of the police or the FBI or the KKK, who have threatened to use “lethal force” against people in that city. “Why don’t you keep calm and serve the communities?” he asked the police. “I’m paying your bills, you need go ahead and do what I tell you to.”

Presidential medal to honor 3 slain civil rights workers
And good quotes from Rita Schwerner Bender and David Goodman: Schwerner's widow, Rita Bender, said the best honor Congress "could give to these men and all the others killed or injured in the struggle for voting rights and the dismantling of Jim Crow would be the reinstatement of the Voting Rights Act and its aggressive enforcement." Goodman's brother, David, said he believes that "all the other 900 volunteers in Freedom Summer were heroes, too."
