Similar to the aftermath of the one-night Pumpkin riot in New Hampshire last fall, the Ferguson Twitter Brigade has been on a tangent today trying to contrast the tactics and media coverage of police in Lexington, KY responding to post basketball riots, with that of Ferguson. A few of their specific claims include:
- 1.) That chemical munitions were not used.
- 2.) That rioters were not arrested.
- 3.) That the media is refusing to call the events “riots” but other more forgiving terms.
