The #FERGUSON Hashtag On Instagram Is Very Disturbing

If you ask Instagram, protests in Ferguson, Missouri over the killing of teen Michael Brown by police have turned into a full blown war between unarmed protestors and swat style police. I searched the hashtag #FERGUSON trying to gain a little bit more knowledge on the situation. Social media is a great way to get a person to person perspective on national news stories, as opposed to a main stream media point of view. What I found on the hashtag was way more disturbing that knowledgable. It looked like something straight out of a scene from Saving Private Ryan, instead the war took place in Ferguson. Pictures of people who had been in the middle of tear gas bombs, videos of police firing rubber bullets at unarmed civilians, it looked like the photos we see from Iraq. Could this be our country? Should police even have equipment like tanks with mounted machine guns? All types of questions started running through my head.

Take a look at a few of the Instagram posts below…

Take a look at the hashtag yourself. #Ferguson
