America Beyond Ferguson, Missouri

12-year-old Devonte Hart, Sgt. Bret Barnum share hug at Ferguson rally

A picture worth a thousand words. It tells the story of that other America that now retired officer Darren Wilson who shot and killed unarmed teenager Mike Brown is totally ignorant of. It shows police Sgt. Bret Barnum hugging and being hugged by twelve year old Devonte Hart during the Ferguson demonstration in Portland, Oregon on November 25, 2014. The picture was taken by freelance photographer Johnny Nguyen. Look at this moment and let it sink in. I have no more words about it.
