Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal told CNN today that she was more afraid of the police in Ferguson than she was being shot at in a bunker in Baghdad, Iraq.
“The world needs to know exactly what has been going on here in Ferguson. There have been several human rights that have been violated. The First Amendment starting with one. Being gassed. I was teargassed for three hours. Myself along with my intern. And the world needs to know this is what law enforcement did to us here. And, you don’t see this all across America. You don’t even see this in Iraq or Afghanistan. Let me tell you. I’ve been to Iraq. And I’ve been fired at in a bunker in Iraq. And let me tell you I was more afraid in Ferguson , Missouri than I was in Baghdad, Iraq.”
