Ferguson Protests Through The Eyes Of A Teenager

August 21, 2014

Throughout the Ferguson riots, we’ve heard from journalists, activists and–after some significant delays–the police. But the voices of teenagers, those whose ages render them closest to the now-deceased Mike Brown, have certainly been missing.

Here are 4 of the most appallingly evil experiments ever carried out in the name of science. Note that many of the experiments were of limited or non-existent value. It turns out that freaks who like to torture human beings are generally bad at designing double-blind trials.
