    Police, protesters clash again in Ferguson.....
    Associated Press By JIM SALTER 2 hours ago.

    Anger spurred by the death of a black teenager at the hands of white police officer boiled over again when protesters stormed into a Missouri convenience store the same store that Michael Brown was accused of robbing. Police and about 200 protesters clashed in Ferguson, Missouri late Friday after another tense day in the St. Louis suburb, a day that included authorities identifying the officer who fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9. At the same news conference in which officer Darren Wilson was named, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson released documents alleging that Brown stole a $48.99 box of cigars from the convenience store, then strong-armed a man on his way out.

    Just before midnight, some in what had been a large and rowdy but mostly well-behaved crowd broke into that same small store and began looting it, said Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson. Some in the crowd began throwing rocks and other objects at police, Johnson said. One officer was hurt but details on the injury were not immediately available. Johnson said police backed off to try and ease the tension. He believes looting may have spread to a couple of nearby stores. No arrests were made.....snip~

    Sad. they target some guy whose only "crime" is owning a business. A guy who is a VICTIM of a crime that there is VIDEO EVIDENCE of. Scum of the earth.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    From the same link. As you can see Holder and BO are making sure they are on the job. Held some interviews as part of
    Civil Rights Investigation. Which they will talk to some more after they canvass the neighborhood.

    Is that Code for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharptones to start making the rounds?



    Also Friday, the Justice Department confirmed in a statement that FBI agents had conducted several interviews with witnesses as part of a civil-rights investigation into Brown's death. In the days ahead, the agents planned to canvass the neighborhood where the shooting happened, seeking more information, the statement said.....snip~

    Some asshat threw a molotov cocktail at a Domino's pizza.

    Yeah, that's reasonable.

    Apparently the message they want to get across is the next time a black man walks into your store and tries to steal something, let him go. You don't want to piss off black people by putting them in jail from crimes. I really don't understand why the city is allowing this any further. It has proven, time and time again, that these protest turn violent without any action from the police. Just a bunch of criminals that want attention when the camera's turn on. These protests should be stopped immediately and all involved should be locked up.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    As soon as Jesse and the racist Sharpton arrive on the scene, the circus is open.

    Some harsh words from former Wizards player Arenas though:

    Arenas may have a point.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Heya Ockham What do you think about this? Do you think this might be relevant?


    FBI warns New Black Panther leader in Ferguson inciting violence.

    The FBI is concerned members of the New Black Panther Party are in Ferguson, Missouri and advocating violence against police, according to an alert from the St. Louis Division of the FBI, reported KTVI.

    Chawn Kweli, National Chief of Staff for the NBPP is in town, along with other members, to respond to the shooting of Michael Brown. Kweli posted on Facebook , “This is the hour all the greats promised. If you die, die like a warrior. I’ll see you on the ground.” He is posting updates from Ferguson under the tag: Live Battle Report.....snip~

    Strange, I never said that Brown was saint. I only said that his killing was:
    A- unlawful.
    B- probably the result of an esaclating, and eventualy out of control "macho contest" that both Brown and the police officer engaged in.

    If the New Black Panthers and their Leader are inciting violence.....then why hasn't the FBI arrested them. Since they were there to question witnesses.

    So what exactly are you talking about when you say "militarization" if you aren't referring to swat teams? Is there specific gear they are using you don't think they should have? Because everything I've seen, I would expect SWAT to have.
    Stop talking about things you have no knowledge of. Without google, do you know when SWAT was created and why? And sense you don't know what a militarised police force looks like, I authorise you to use google and look at what was brought out in Boston last year, and if you like that, then you probably liked the STASI!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
