The publication reminds that in November in St. Louis, a jury acquitted a policeman who had shot dead in an unarmed 19-year-old African American, Michael Brown, in Ferguson (a suburb of St. Louis) in the summer. After that, a wave of mass protests swept through US cities.
A new wave is rising now while on the Internet, but it is quite possible that soon it will spill out onto the streets.
