While Jake Tapper was interviewing supporters of Darren Wilson, a verbal shootout happened right around the time the Wilson supporters were explaining how upset they were that his presumption of innocence has been ignored, and how they always support police because police are always right. See how that works?

Presumption of innocence for one but not the other. Awesome. reports:

While CNN was talking to pro-Wilson demonstrators, a local resident, Victor Dewan, came by to tell the rally to go home, that he doesn't want trouble in his neighborhood.

"We don't want any controversy. There's a lot of black people live around here and I want for the peace. Let them get out of here. We don't want this street to be any violent," said Dewan.

But as he voiced his displeasure, divisions here became apparent once more, with protesters telling Dewan that it is their First Amendment right to protest, and telling him they are U.S. citizens.

Dewan replied that he is a U.S. citizen, too. Then one protester told him to learn to speak English.

"I am speaking English," Dewan said.

"I am speaking English do you understand that?! Stupid jack***, do you understand that?!" a protester yelled at Dewan.

The long simmering racial tensions in St. Louis continue to occasionally boil over, on both sides of town.
