When Jake Tapper said it looked like Bagram, he wasn't kidding.

If you missed our coverage of Monday's events in and around and regarding Ferguson, here's a roundup:

Once again, there's an escalation from peaceful protest to violence. Monday night, however, the ratio of cops to protesters was something like 2:1.

Did Michael Brown pay for his Rellos? Video seems to indicate he may have done so.

Why Ferguson? Desert Beacon explains.

Kareem's insightful post about why the coming race war is really not a race war at all. It's a class war.

Juanita Jean can't find one thing funny about Ferguson.

Folks in Ferguson need to vote if they want to change the dynamic. They're not doing that right now.

In Cable Newsland, Fox & Friends find themselves a black teabagger to defend racist policy, and Don Lemon gets shoved off the sidewalk, waking him up to the fact that the cops don't really care who you are if you're in their line of sight.

This isn't going to end until there's an arrest of the man who killed Mike Brown. If the police and politicians want accountability, they should treat this man the same way they would have treated Mike Brown if he had shot the cop. Until that happens, there will be violence on the streets.

No justice, no peace. And...

Hands up! Don't Shoot!
