2 People shot and 31 arrested in Ferguson Mayhem.
Police, protesters collide again in Ferguson.....
The National Guard arrived in Ferguson but kept its distance from the streets where protesters clashed again with police, as clouds of tear gas and smoke hung over the St. Louis suburb where Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer.
Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol, who is in charge of security in Ferguson, said bottles and Molotov cocktails were thrown from the crowd and that some officers had come under heavy gunfire. At least two people were shot and 31 were arrested, he said. He did not have condition updates on those who were shot. Johnson said four officers were injured by rocks or bottles.....snip~
Police, protesters collide again in Ferguson
Office Johnson also stated that many of these incidents with the police are from those out of state.....also the Press is whining and crying about their people being arrested. Including Foreign Press? It is the press that has driven this issue and are making it about the Police. Take a look at this photo.....its what is up on Yahoo their Front Page with this Story being reported 47 mins ago.
Why don't the community just start chasing off All those that are not from Ferguson, the surrounding area and Missouri.
Besides the New Black Panthers, Jesse and Sharptones stirring up their usual.....who are the others that are going after the police?
Did anybody watch the National Guard press conference and where after the guy spoke, they then had a "White" Christian minister make a statement of support for the troops and with references to the "Legality" of God's Laws and that government laws serve as being God's Law. That God would approve of the action about to be taken against these protesters?
Was this "White" minister claiming that his God or that his communications with God are more truthful or more valid than the black preachers from within the community itself who are supporting the protesters? (Al Sharpton is not from the community.)
The Poor Folks all across America have been told since childhood that they should ignore the inequalities and perceived injustices which surround them, and to let the Rich Folks enjoy their inordinate amount of wealth because the Poor Folks will be rewarded in Heaven.
Sort of like the 72 Virgins in Heaven like what the religious preachers tell the Poor Folks within the Middle East as they complain about these same societal issues.
Same kinda Sh?t ..... but a different pile.
And worse ..... The Rich Folks get to enjoy their wealth and enjoy the afterlife too.
What a joke, eh?
Leaders without a conscience always hide behind a God.
President George Bush not only claimed that he talked to God, but God even answered him.
President George W. Bush told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq - and create a Palestinian State, a new BBC series reveals
In Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs, a major three-part series on BBC TWO (at 9.00pm on Monday 10, Monday 17 and Monday 24 October), Abu Mazen, Palestinian Prime Minister, and Nabil Shaath, his Foreign Minister, describe their first meeting with President Bush in June 2003.
Nabil Shaath says: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"
Abu Mazen was at the same meeting and recounts how President Bush told him: "I have a moral and religious obligation. So I will get you a Palestinian state."
Lyndon Johnson told Austrian ambassador Ernst Lemberter in 1966 that the Holy Ghost regularly visited him..."He comes to me about 2 o'clock in the morning," Johnson said, "--when I have to give word to the boys, and I get the word from God whether to bomb or not."

And Ronnie Ray-Gun insisted upon visiting an Astrologer and a Tarot Card Reader to check whether it was a good month to meet with Gorbachev. Ronnie and Nancy entertained and frequented the very demons of which his own bible screamed against.

But there are huge disparities of opportunity between the white and visible minority communities and in every sector from early education and then onto work placements.
If the system itself has been proven decade after decade to be "Racist", then obviously your view fails to recognize this fact.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
I think there is more to the story. A investigation shouldn't take this long. Either the police is lying or the "witnesses" are lying. Personally I would like to see Brown's little friend arrested for being an accessory to the robbery. I can't stand when that little twerp runs his mouth and it seems every news agency wants to stick a microphone in his mouth. Secondly I think the "Josie" audio is just as bad. If the officer told her all that then he is just as stupid as her for running her mouth on a radio call in show.
Either way someone is lying, however this is going to end badly. This makes Trayvon Martin and Rodney King seem like a peaceful group.
