The absolute nerve of some people who were hired to ‘serve and protect,’ yet have shown their true colors over the past few weeks as protests and demonstrations inspired by the fatal shooting of Michael Brown continue. A police officer just 15 miles away from the ongoing protests in Ferguson, Mo. allegedly said he thinks the protesters should have been “put down like rabid dogs.”
