Is Ferguson, Mo.—where Mike Brown was gunned down by a police officer this past weekend—part of the United States, or is it an occupied country? It’s sometimes difficult to tell when police in full riot gear are juxtaposed with citizens exercising their right to protest.

These striking images will make you wonder who exactly the police in Ferguson, or even around your way, are really trying to protect, riots be damned.

Check out a run down of what’s happening in Ferguson in a profound piece called “America Is Not For Black People” over at Gawker, and check out how our people are being treated in the midwest in the gallery.
