Yep, Ferguson made a lot of money from the unjust & unfair treatment of Black Americans… not to mention the thousands held in the facility known as Homan Square for over a decade.
Extorting money from blacks was their revenue plan. And if that racist had not killed Michael Brown things would have been the same. But this is going on in every city where a lot of blacks live.
There is a wealthy municipal within Houston called Bellaire that have its own police dept, Bellaire is 80% white. A young black man was shot in front of his own house in front of his own mother and father by a cop who accused him of car theft. The parents told that asshole cop that he was their son driving their car and he was home but the cop shot him anyway. He lived but further investigation exposed the Belliare police dept was racial profiling blacks for traffic infractions and that 98% of those ticketed were Black and Latino. And this is how they were getting revenue for their budget, same shit going on in Ferguson. And that was back in 2008!
