    Police In Ferguson Lock Up Peaceful Daytime Protesters By Mistake, Chief Testifies

    St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, who helped oversee last month's aggressive response to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, said Monday that communications failures led police to lock up peaceful citizens during daytime hours.
    Belmar testified in federal court about the so-called five-second rule that police in Ferguson allowed protestors before enforcing Missouri's law against refusing to disperse. Though the statute only applies to individuals who refuse a police order to leave an "unlawful assembly, or at the scene of a riot," police in Ferguson repeatedly demanded crowds disperse during protests last month of a police officer's fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18, who was unarmed.
    Tired of these authority figures (who sit behind a desk all day) being a pussy and making excuses when they want to test out their authority. Taking away American freedom and replying with a "oops" when it is what they intended. Arresting someone for stopping 5 seconds is absolutely ****ing bat**** insane. Day or night.

    Tired of those idiot assholes tying up traffic, spewing trash everywhere, looting and stealing and chanting their moronic slogans. Should be three seconds then kick them in the balls.

    Ferguson Police Are Still Locking Up Mike Brown Protesters, Even In Broad Daylight

    FERGUSON, Mo. -- Nearly two months after police officer Darren Wilson gunned down unarmed teenager Michael Brown in this St. Louis suburb, protesters calling for Wilson's prosecution are still regularly being locked up by police, even when they are just standing on a public sidewalk in the middle of the day.

    St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said this week that a miscommunication led to the arrest of peaceful protesters during daytime hours during the height of the demonstrations in mid-August. But now that the Ferguson Police Department is back in charge of day-to-day operations -- and as much of the national media has disappeared -- police seem to be continuing a policy of "catch and release" that demonstrators believe is designed to discourage protests.
    oh what do you know... This cops branch is filled with filthy liars.... If the chief cant even be trusted to tell the truth with stuff they do in open broad daylight then why trust any of their more extreme stories?

    I think you missed the point of the article. The LAW allows them to protest, and the cops arrested them anyway.

    And of course we have a conservative whining about people exercising their right to protest, which is only a right for people you like, and for all others it's at the discretion of the police.

    Judge bars Ferguson officers from enforcing 'keep moving' rule | MSNBC

    A federal judge on Monday issued an injunction barring police from enforcing what became known as “the five-second rule,” in which protesters in Ferguson, Missouri could only stay still for that brief amount of time. U.S. District Court Judge Catherine Perry ruled that the statute was unconstitutional because it violated protesters’ freedom of speech rights, as well as due process.

    “[T]he policy fails to provide sufficient notice of what is illegal and because it was enforced arbitrarily,” wrote Perry in response to a case brought by the ACLU.
    Well no ****... It took them this long just to fix the injustice? At least the judge finally got something done right. Im surprised the entire town didn't revolt with the 5 second rule.

    Good point. The chief might not have lied about knowing his cops were arresting people during daylight hours for the bogus "keep moving" rule. He might have just been clueless about what the small force he commanded was doing and why many of those protesting in his jurisdiction were getting arrested! So, not a liar, just incompetent and lazy!
