My brother in Christ, Rev. Alvin Herring (podium), had guns aimed at him last night in Ferguson, MO., as he attempted to nonviolently deescalate the violence in the aftermath of the waves of police-led domestic terrorism going on in Missouri.
His son, Ryan Herring, who was a Sojourners intern last year, tweets:
They drew guns on my dad tonight … he was on Chambers when that person was shot— Ryan Herring (@infiniteideal) August 18, 2014
Here is a tweet from Alvin:
A few of us had a chance to talk to Rev. Alvin, and his sons, Ryan and Brandon, on Saturday morning as they prepared to head to Ferguson. Ryan and Brandon were only staying a few days. Alvin, as he said, “Had no return ticket.”–Rose
