    The #Ferguson Crisis — America Held Hostage — Night 3

    The #Ferguson Crisis — America Held Hostage — Night 3

    National Guard moves in as protests spread

    The violence that gripped Ferguson, MO in the wake of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson has spread to multiple cities across the US.

    Minneapolis

    Portland

    Los Angeles

    Meanwhile in Ferguson, things are quieter, but still tense:

    West Florissant Avenue, a Ferguson commercial strip now being treated as a crime scene after an arson spree, was still barricaded by the police on Wednesday. National Guard troops in camouflage uniforms, who were largely limited to protecting government buildings two nights earlier, fanned out across the city, taking up positions along street corners and at intersections.

    Throughout demonstrations on Tuesday night, the Guard responded to disturbances, turning back demonstrators from a drugstore that had been surrounded by the police and helping officers make arrests outside the Police Department. Although windows at Ferguson’s City Hall were shattered and a police car was flipped and burned, law enforcement officials said the more assertive response had helped curb the chaos that prevailed on Monday.

    What a crock!

    Maybe – maybe – the locals and relatives could be expected to be upset, even angry, at least until the facts were known.

    The facts are known now. WHAT are these Bozos protesting? The ‘right’ of criminals to attack police without consequence?

    There seems to be a typo in your subhead.

    There we go, fixed it for ya.

    I would have done the same thing in the car that ran over the woman.

    I honestly do feel bad for her for what happened to her but those people started banging on the car and trying to smash it and get at the driver before she was even in front of the car. Her ignorance of that kind of heated situation contributed to her injury.

    “The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished.”

    That is at turns pathetic and appalling. At least our enemies are morons…

    Something that never really struck me until today…

    Eric HOlder and Barracula have known for months that Wilson was not the craven racist killer the first accounts had him being.

    They could have…should have…knocked down the more lurid stories, but they kept them alive. Right up until Monday.

    That is almost unspeakably evil.

      Yeah, I noticed that a lot of the African-American witnesses with exculpatory evidence opened up when the FBI came calling, unwilling to trust local or state police, and I remember the prosecutor making a really large point of saying how cooperation with the FBI had been total and the feds had everything the state had and vice-versa…

      Meaning Holder knew everything or should have.

      By the way, I also hear Valerie Jarrett was Obama’s liaison with Governor Nixon, in the ideal position to express the President’s displeasure and to suggest courses of non-action such as holding back the National Guard. When people said she’s doing the job she’s assigned, er, that job was to deal with activist groups like La Raza. But sitting governors? Amazing.
