    Taurean Russell, a black community organizer who was been working to mobilize residents since
    Michael Brown was gunned down by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, was arrested earlier in
    the week. At a press event, he recounted his arrest.

    During the evening, Russell had been on multiple mainstream news programs. He had the
    opportunity to meet rapper Talib Kweli. He decided to explain to Kweli how unlikely it was that Brown
    could get from the Ferguson Market, where authorities alleged he stole cigars, to Canfield Drive,
    where Wilson shot him.

    Russell said he left the area on West Florissant Avenue, where community has been gathering for
    nightly demonstrations, and police were following them. And, at some point, police were yelling,
    “There he goes in the gray shirt! Get him!”

    Once he was arrested, according to Russell, he heard the officer say, “We finally got him. We finally
    got one of those animals and that’s the one we want.”

    Ferguson Protest Leader Speaks on Holder’s Tricks and Oprah’s Insults

    Taurean Russell, one of the leaders of Hands Up United, has been a key protest organizer since the day Officer Darren
    Wilson killed Michael Brown on a street in Ferguson, Missouri. Asked how Blacks in Ferguson reacted to word that Attorney
    General Eric Holder will not indict Wilson on civil rights charges, Russell said: “We really don’t care if the system brings charges
    or indicts him. The community has indicted him.” The protests “woke up a lot of people to the hypocrisy that is the system.”
    On media Tycoon Oprah Winfrey’s criticism, that young leaders of the new movement don’t know what they want, Russell said
    protesters’ demands have been widely circulated since August. “I assume that she has a billion distractions – literally,” he said.
