    The #Ferguson Crisis – America Held Hostage – Night 2

    The #Ferguson Crisis – America Held Hostage – Night 2

    Full spiral.

    After last night’s protests in Ferguson boiled over, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has tripled the National Guard presence in Ferguson in an attempt to quell the violence.

    From the New York Times:

    At an afternoon news conference, Mr. Nixon said that he had ordered the deployment of 2,200 National Guard soldiers to Ferguson. “Last night, criminals intent on lawlessness and destruction terrorized this community,” he said. “What they’ve gone through is unacceptable.”

    Earlier, Mayor James W. Knowles III of Ferguson criticized the governor for not deploying the Guard quick enough to save some of the businesses that burned.

    “The delay in deploying the National Guard is deeply concerning,” said Mr. Knowles, adding that he had not spoken directly to the governor since late August, despite almost nightly protests in Ferguson since.

    Police officers were overwhelmed by the wave of violence Monday night after the grand jury’s decision was announced.

    Jon Belmar, the St. Louis County police chief, said demonstrators had set fire to at least a dozen buildings in and around Ferguson, and he estimated that he had heard about 150 gunshots. None of the shots, he said, were fired by the police.

    Last night’s Ustream livestream from the ground in Ferguson is still up and running:

    A taste of the “progressive” nation of South Africa. One of the few, and perhaps the only, nation that possesses a constitution that normalized involuntary exploitation of a native population based on the [white] color of their skin. The “civil” rights leaders are looking for a Marxist-Mandela solution in America. Not just redistributive, but also retributive change.

    “Earlier, Mayor James W. Knowles III of Ferguson criticized the governor for not deploying the Guard quick enough to save some of the businesses that burned.”

    The mayor went about it wrong. If he had announced that because the governor was dawdling on the issue, the mayor would form a local militia of adult males from the 2A community to protect the city, the governor would have had the entire National Guard and most of the state police in Ferguson pronto to make sure THAT didn’t happen.

    RIP DeAndre Joshua.
    Who is DeAndrea?
    He is a 20 year old, who is the sole victim of last nights riots. His body was found shot and burned in a car this morning.

    One more thing. [b] He was one of the witnesses to the GJ, whose story supported Darren Wilson. [/b]

    “It is clear, I think, that acts of violence threaten to drown out those who have legitimate voices, legitimate demonstrators,” Holder told reporters. “Those acts of violence cannot and will not be condoned.”

    Oh, well, then… Damn, if Mr. Holder isn’t going to condone my stealing this wide-screen, I’m goin’ home rat now! BWAAAAAAHAHAHA.

    Of course, if I thought he was gonna PROSECUTE me for crossing state lines so I could loot and riot, I might have stayed home in the first place…
