Perfection: The United States is now using billions of dollars in weaponry and munitions to blow up billions of dollars worth of weaponry and munitions that we left behind in Iraq. Certainly increases the profit margins.
Snapped Shots: In Ferguson, a cop advises, “If you don't want to get hurt, don't challenge me.” Presumably it was a different cop who told a journalist to move along or “I'll bust your head”. Other boys in blue (or urban camouflage) arrested some German journalists and some other removed Amnesty Intentional and media representatives from the area. Yet another threatened protesters with an assault rifle and threatened to”F*king kill” them. Protecting and serving.

Summer Reruns: “Bombing Iraq” is back for another season, along with a revival of “Death by Drones” which is broadcasting episodes shot in the Middle East, Southwest Asia, and several slices of Africa. Make some popcorn, it'll wait.

The state is making no particular effort to prevent these deaths. Elsewhere in SC a student has been arrested for writing an essay about shooting a dinosaur – which get more protection in SC than women.
