Acid Rain

Acid Rain
When a group of black and white protesters jumped into the swimming pool at the Monson Motel in St. Augustine, Florida, an entirely white hotel where several other protests had been held. In response to the protest the owner of the hotel, James Brock, was photographed pouring muriatic acid into the pool to get the protesters out.

Photographs of this, and of a policeman jumping into the pool to arrest them, were broadcast around the world and became some of the most famous images of the entire Civil Rights Movement. The photos became fodder for communist countries, who used the images to depict U.S. claims of democracy and freedom.

That's it, run devil run. Maybe God will have mercy on your soul one day when you breath your last few breaths & give way to reflect on eternity and how you spent your time here on earth.
