Middle East in America

Palestinian neighbors Post to twitter
about America's racial conflict
twitter tips to deal with tear gas
dispersed in Ferguson Missouri.

Peaceful protest turned war zone
media detained harassed for no reason
police, riot officers, swat team, military trucks
it's like Middle East fighting in America.

The president has been brief
Militarized county police
Protestors chant
Tear gas and rubber bullets fired
Molly cocktail become fire bombs
War zone in Ferguson

State police take charge

Unrest fades peace abound.

I've enjoyed reading this. You've captured the scene so well.
I could see how many people are feeling the oppression on other parts of the world and far away from America. I think this is, though you'd see it bad for you country, paints some hope on the overall scene. It is the extreme opposite of something I have written and submitted for the "New Form workshop" about how deaf, blind and mute are some all over the world.
Thanks for sharing.

PS. I think there is something missing in the last line.
