Best of Two Months

Ferguson_Day_6,_Picture_44So this blog has been around a little over two months now.  In the past several days, I’ve seen a sudden spike in viewership and just yesterday the site broke the seventy-thousand mark.  Since it seems that there’s a lot of new faces around here and I know it’s not exactly appealing to go back to the beginning and read from post one, what follows is a sort of “Best of” or “Abridged Edition” for the blog.  Thank you for your viewership and kind words, both in the comments and by email.  I urge you to keep sharing as we move into a what looks to be a series of difficult weeks.

  • Hindsight features audio footage from New Years which is pretty indicative of the type of area North County is in.

4.) Gun Fight https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmqHVKNZkhM#t=9945

  • I’ve posted this video several times, but I don’t think I ever gave it the proper respect of a dedicated post.  Watch St. Louis County and media take fire near the ruins of QT I believe on 08/18/2014.  The most interesting part starts around 02:45:00.

3.) I’m Sick Of10570110_691843817562811_1167420843_nhttps://dissonantwinstonsmith.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/im-sick-of/

  • This post is the most widely disseminated and viewed post on the blog.  It is also correspondingly the most controversial which was surprising for something I wrote at the end of a night shift on the 8/24.

2.) Bloody Sundaysmoke  https://dissonantwinstonsmith.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/bloody-sunday/

  • This post is a direct account of what happened to me on the second Sunday 8/17/2014 of violence in Ferguson.  I think this was the worst day thus far and I think about it often.

1.) Dissonance

  • The above post is the first post on this blog and a chronicle of my experiences on the first night of looting.  Everything that has happened since 8/10/2014 needs to be viewed through the spectrum of what happened the night after Mike Brown died.
