Meldon Moffitt – 42 from #Ferguson, MO
"Last night was a peaceful protest, but somehow these officers feel like they have to control what are doing peacefully and they moved in on us. They arrested me, put me to the ground and put these wire handcuffs on me. They took me to the command center up by the Target and let me sit in the van for at least two hours with some other guys that they arrested. I got out by about 4 this morning. I haven’t been home, I haven’t had a wink of sleep and I am not going anywhere. I am going to be here until I hear that word, ‘Guilty’."
Part of the project that I shot in Ferguson, MO is online now over at Bloomberg Businessweek. Take a look at it here: http://images.businessweek.com/photos/2014-08-22/from-the-streets-of-ferguson-portraits-of-defiance#slide1
