We understand that there is a lawsuit going on in Ferguson challenging the police rule that nobody can stand still at the Ferguson protests. This is, of course, enforced selectively, but completely aside from that, the purpose of the ruling is to try to squash the protests. Below we see the police first announcing this rule – during the morning at the QT lot. We also see some scenes on and around that lot in the days leading up to this. It’s clear that the lot was a community gathering place where people shared food, ideas, etc. That’s the real reason the cops and the political power structure wanted to break it up.
