Disturbing footage surfaces from tense Ferguson protests
By T. Becket Adams | August 14, 2014 | 9:05 am



As the situation in Ferguson, Mo., grows increasingly volatile, the police response heavy-handed, the residents further enraged, protests in response to the shooting death of 18-year-old Mike Brown, an African American, continue unabated.

And now we have unsettling footage from a confrontation Wednesday night between law enforcement officials and Ferguson residents.

It’s not pretty.

This kind of display by LOCAL COPS is an abomination.  The governor should come in and relieve the Ferguson and St. Louis County Cops of duty and bring in the National Guard.    When this is over, fat boy Jackson should be fired, as should the entire chain of command of the Ferguson PD. 

Cops are aggravating the situation, not bringing any calm to it.

Wrong.  Protestors have a right to peacefully protest.  That's not happening in this case.  These wildlings in Ferguson deserve to be treated as savages.

Have you watched any of it?  I watched for two hours on USTREAM last night.  There were no "wildings" or lootings.  People were in the streets and on the sidewalks protesting, which they have a right to do.  Cops were pointing weapons at them and telling them to go home at 9:00.  In the absence of a declared curfew, they can't do that.

In addition, the cops were arresting journalists and firing tear gas cannisters at them for filming them doing their jobs (perfectly legal).

You have no idea what you're talking about.
