    #Ferguson Protestors Deliver “Rules of Engagement” to Police

    #Ferguson Protestors Deliver “Rules of Engagement” to Police

    Message: Police priority should be facilitation of protest, not preserving law and order

    CNN is reporting that the #Ferguson protestors have delivered to police a list of 18 “Rules of Engagement.” These essentially amount to a set of constraints on police response to the violence expected to result when the grand jury declines to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson for his self-defense shooting of Mike Brown, the 290-pound black adult male who, in what seems like an all too common moment of poor judgment, attacked and tried to kill the police officer.

    I’ve embedded the list, as linked on the CNN site, below, but the first item is worthy of particular note:

    1) The first priority shall be preservation of human life.

    The irony fairy was unavailable for comment.

    Anyway, here’s the whole list:

    #19 They are admitting that they are going to break the law!
    What in the Sam Hill is going on…you never beat the drum before you hunt the tiger! Then again… you cannot fix stupid… and these 19 demands are just that! Printed by STUPID and affirmed by STUPID!
    I pray the Dear Lord has mercy for those who are STUPID!

    Alas, the fans of Gangster Government; well schooled by the state schools, the various divisions of the Propaganda Ministry (NBC, CBS, MSNBC, ABC, NySlime, etc) and Eric Holder’s thugs.

    My one rule of engagement is the same one as Mayor Daley’s in Chicago many moons ago: rioters and looters will be shot on sight.

    Time to skim the gene pool!
