Police, Protesters Clash In Another Violent Night In Ferguson
18 Aug 2014 by Kerry Picket
FERGUSON, Missouri—Police dispersed crowds of protesters during another violent chaotic night here with tear gas, flash bang grenades, and an LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) sound cannon.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon called on the National Guard to try to restore order after more than a week of protests and riots following the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
During the evening, some protesters screamed at police officers while others took their anger out on local businesses, with one protester exclaiming, “That’s it! Let’s open some stores now!”
Sunday afternoon, protesters gathered at the Quik Trip gas station that was burned down last week after it was looted amidst the riots. The station has now become a makeshift shrine to Brown.
Early in the evening gunshots were heard near the gas station sending crowds of protesters screaming and running away. Police were immediately on the scene along with Emergency Medical Services.
Ferguson residents and others said they see no difference in confrontations with protesters since Missouri State High Patrol took over the operation. A young Ferguson resident told Breitbart News, “Why are [they] condoning the same things that you said you came here to change? That’s stupid. That don’t make sense. They’re supposed to be protecting us and [they’re] throwing tear gas at us like we’re at war.”
Ferguson residents also said they are upset that “outsiders” from the city of St. Louis are causing the looting and rioting mayhem.
“The people from Ferguson wouldn’t have started the looting. As you can see the people from Ferguson are right here. I feel it’s the outsiders are what’s causing the drama—everybody that’s coming from the city and Normandy and all that stuff. I feel like they’re the ones who are causing the problems,” a resident said.
Local officials are calling for calm. Normandy Mayor Patrick Green told Breitbart News that while he understands people are upset, the current protests are more “destructive than constructive” right now.
“Because more protests are what people personally feel and we’ve gotta get to what happened to Mike Brown. That’s most important. That’s what everybody wants and the Justice Department is involved and the Justice Department is as high as you can go, “ he said. Beyond that it’s only God himself and so unless someone can figure if there’s someone higher than the Justice Department, I’d like to know.”
Green added, “They cant’t indict. They have to investigate. They have to do many things. If you didn’t know who burglarized your house, and even if you had an idea, we still have to prove it. And so people have to understand you just cant do that in the spur of the moment. What has to happen is it has to got through a due process of law.”

National Guard to protect Ferguson police
Governor: Troops will focus on guarding command center
August 18, 2014 by Bob Unruh
After more than a week of nightly get-off-the-street orders and violence in Ferguson, Missouri, by protesters of the police shooting of a teenager, authorities are dropping their plan for a curfew.
Instead, the governor has instructed the National Guard units on duty there to protect police.
The move apparently will leave homeowners, shop owners and others wondering how to protect themselves as they brace for yet another round of violence Monday night. Over the past week, stores were looted, burned and vandalized as crowds rampaged in the wake of the police shooting.
Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, said that while the National Guard was called in to Ferguson to keep order, its role will be limited to protecting the police command center.
“The guard will concentrate its resources on carrying out this limited mission,” the governor announced. “I join the people of Ferguson, and all Missourians, in strongly condemning the violent acts we saw (Sunday) night, including the firing upon law enforcement officers, the shooting of a civilian, the throwing of Molotov cocktails, looting and a coordinated attempt to overrun the unified command center.”
He the investigations into the death of Michael Brown that have been going on since the Aug. 9 shooting must be allowed to continue.
In the meantime, the governor said authorities need to protect Ferguson from “violent interlopers” who have been rioting.
WND reported that when the riots first erupted, Mayor James Knowles said the worst perpetrators in Ferguson were from out of town.
An autopsy report released today concluded Brown was facing the officer when he was shot, contrary to the testimony of witnesses who claimed he was shot from behind. The report also said he had marijuana in his system.
Nixon signed an order Monday deploying the National Guard, citing the “deliberate, coordinated and intensifying violent attacks on lives and property in Ferguson.”
Police also banned protesters from the QuikTrip store that was burned out after the violence erupted.
Meanwhile, Brown’s mother continues to insist on the arrest of the officer who fired the shots that killed her son.
Make “him accountable for his actions,” she said.
Sunday night, protesters brandished weapons as they faced off with police, who responded with tear gas. At least two people suffered gunshot wounds, and several others were arrested.
Schools remained closed Monday.
“New” Black Panthers March, Demand Death for Darren Wilson: Whither Eric Holder?
August 17, 2014 By John Lillpop
As reported at the reference, members of the “New” Black Panthers marched and chanted death threats for Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer named by police as the one who shot and killed Michael Brown on August 9.
As shown in the You Tube video, protestors repeat a chant calling for the death of Darren Wilson:
Black Panthers Lead Death Chant for Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, MO
The Panthers are heard to Chant:
What do we want?
– Darren Wilson
How do we want him?
From a local source in Ferguson: The New Black Panthers say, “We can not guarantee your safety.” – Three revolution groups are in town. They want absolute mayhem.
One wonders whether Eric Holder, US Attorney General, has plans to investigate and, if warranted, prosecute the protesters for making very public death threats against a police officer?
It will be remembered that Holder refused to take action against Black Panthers whom intimidated voters during the 2008 election in Philadelphia.

Ferguson riot: National police leaders blast Obama remarks
August 17, 2014 By Jim Kouri
President Barack Obama is once again being blasted by police officers from across the nation—especially the more than 300,000 members of the Fraternal Order of Police [FOP]—who voiced their anger over comments made by the President about the Ferguson police shooting and its aftermath, according to a press statement from FOP officials on Thursday night.
The FOP’s director of the Law Enforcement Legislative Advocacy Center, Jim Pasco, said in a statement that President Obama should not have criticized the police while he vacationed in his opulent Martha’s Vineyard retreat
“To police officers, the incongruity of his evaluating police tactics from the comfort of Martha’s Vineyard in the horrible tragedy which occurred in Missouri and ensuing the events is unfortunate,” Pasco said on the FOP website as quoted by the New York Post.
“I think what he has to do as president and as a constitutional lawyer is remember that there is a process in the United States and the process is being followed, for good or for ill, by the police and by the county and by the city and by the prosecutors’ office,” Pasco added.
Obama, during an impromptu press briefing on Thursday, said there should be calm and took a shot at the police just hours after he was dancing and smiling during a birthday party for the wife of one of the “swells” he regards as a friend, say police officers.
“There is also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights,” Obama said, as he described 18-year-old Michael Brown’s shooting by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer who was later identified as Darren Wilson.
“I’ll bet a month’s pay that Obama—if faced with what cops faced in Ferguson—would fold like a cheap camera. You’ve heard of the Monday morning [football] quarterbacks? Obama is the Monday morning Commander in Chief,” said former police detective and security manager Kiernan Flaherty. “He [behaves] as if he gets paid by the word.”
Officer Wilson, who shot the 6’4” tall, 290 lbs. teen, is a member of the FOP which will provide and attorney to him and pay all of the legal expenses.
Pasco also recalled 2009, when on national television Obama criticized a Massachusetts police officer for arresting Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, when he was attempting to break into his own home. Obama said the officer had “acted stupidly.”
“That is one where the president spoke precipitously without all the facts,” Pasco said, adding that the current situation “is a much larger and more tragic incident.”
Meanwhile, members of the St. Louis County Police Department defended the use of tear gas to repel the bottle- and firebomb-throwing demonstrators. “In talking to these guys, it is scary,” a police spokesman said. “They hear gunshots going off, and they don’t know where they’re coming from.”
