    by Jonathan Baron "And so we were off. I was quickly surprised as we took the street, opposed to the sidewalk, at around 9:30 pm. The crowd begin chanting more and more profusely, with more and more shocking language. With traffic blocked, police were undoubtedly angered by the unfolding scene. We continued, nonetheless, down countless blocks, with echoes racing through Manhattan's apartments, and bystanders in awe at the scene. The raw power of the people was astounding, and I could feel everyone's voice raging in mine. The streets were flooded with pounding, beating hearts, all in protest of police brutality, blatant racism, and paramilitary actions brought about in Ferguson, which will forever stain their town. We marched in solidarity with Ferguson, as did countless other cities across the nation. The injustices committed would not be left in the dark once again, for it has been swept into dark places for years, and left to rot in the hearts of loved ones who lost their family and friends to corrupt police forces and racist militants. We stood not only for the people of Ferguson, but for the people of Gaza, who are suffering continual occupation. The struggles that the Ferguson people suffered are felt more severely in Palestine, and our voices identified with both peoples, as well as all nations who are occupied by unjust, repressive, and villainous terrorists. The march grew larger, about 200-300 people larger, as another group of protesters joined our group to walk down the center of Broadway, stopping all traffic in our way, leading to the final meeting place in Union Square, an appropriate destination for the many who united to protest the terrible injustices, and stand united with all who have been stripped of their rights. As I sit at my desk, reminiscing on the events that occurred, I feel a chill run down my spine as I realize Michael Brown, the teenager whose death sparked all of this controversy, was only 9 days older than me. The questions bombarded my mind, the scenarios struck me hard, for I could experience the same injustices as he did. Of course, I could never truly understand Michael's position, being a privileged white male whose rights have almost never been obstructed. But I still feel the burning of murder hit me like a ton of bricks, or rather, like 6 rounds from the men who should be protecting my rights. And for those who feel the need to proclaim that all cops are not murderers, "pigs," etc., let me remind you of one basic principle. Police are uniformed to protect our rights, and to ensure that we all face equal justice in the face of the law. When one of them tarnishes that duty, they are not all to blame for that particular incident. But it is their duty to ensure it does not happen again, that it does not go unpunished, and that reform will occur until they may all fulfill their duties to the fullest, with zero tolerance. It is their responsibility, as uniformed protectors, to fix the problems with the system and commit no acts of unjust brutality. I am not suggesting some kind of socialist or communist or whatever-you-may-call-it principle, I am suggesting that when a system is flawed--when a problem arises, and continues to arise--the entire system must be reformed, checked, and fixed to ensure it is credible enough to gain the trust of the people it is not only designed to protect, but also the people that it stands on. If the NYPD has a problem with our protests, then they have all the right in the world to try their best to make sure the people that pay their salaries are happy, through supported reform within their own system. Just as we, the citizens of the United States, feel it is needed to storm the streets and speak our word to enact change, so must they."
