They should stop executing unarmed people and then they wouldn't have this **** on their hands in the first place.
Remember the London riots ? They were sparked by exactly the same thing.
you do realize that 6'4" 250 "kid" also strong armed a convience store owner and stole a box of cigars ? this is what happens when you resist arrest and try to take a cops gun away !! dumbass should have just let the process work itself out, but noooooo, he had to be stupid.
And in what world does that mean he should be shot dead like a rabid dog? Secondly, the cops don't have dashboard cameras, They have produced no physical evidence, they took a week to identify the shooter, and they're taking a LOOOOONG time with the autopsy. AND he was surrendering, he had his arms up in the air and was kneeling on the ground. He didn't keep 'escaping'. And you think this means he should be executed int he street?
they have video surveillance of him strong arming the store owner and walking out with a stolen box of cigars. he also fought with the cop trying to take his gun. yeah, that poor boy was such a sweet angel.....my *** !!!! he got what was coming to him !!
hang 'em high , eh cowboy ?
Funny, that the witness all say he was no where near the officer and the police say the opposite. We all know a cop would NEVER lie to protect another cop......
I read where 1/3 of our military equipment has not even been used. It was never sent with deployment. All of it was distributed to the Police Departments. Tanks, weapons, etc... I have a bad feeling if this does not begin to resolve, Martial law will be implemented.
No it won't.
Oh, it's the gnat again. I can tell you Ms. "Gnat" I have seen it. After Katrina.
How the hell was that martial law? They called the national guard and FEMA in to clean up and help people. They do that after EVERY disaster. I didn't see them dragging folks from their houses searching for political dissidents, murdering people in firing lines, jailing folks for being republican or having guns....But go ahead pretend it's martial law...
You are such an idiot. I absolutely detest people that are always on the attack mode, and are CLUELESS! Look it up grasshopper!
ummm....actually gnat, during Katrina, they were taking firearms away from the citizens, and were also threatened if they did not give them up, they would be shot. that came straight from a military person that was part of the search & rescue operation. yeah, martial law was in effect after Katrina, just not declared.
Links or it didn't happen.
Oh Looky here! "Police and soldiers removed guns from houses after the storm flooded the city, and they confiscated guns from some evacuees." They only confiscated 700 weapons, most of them abandoned from empty houses and they did attempt to return the weapons. Obviously they couldn't just leave the weapons in an empty house someone might steal them. "Some owners complained it was difficult to get them back. Gun owners must bring a bill of sale or an affidavit with the weapon's serial number. Police also are running criminal background checks on those claiming weapons." Gee....I wonder how many people had stolen guns, couldn't prove they owned the guns, or were found to be be possessing a gun illegally....http://www.foxnews.com/story/2006/04/19/no-police-returning-guns-confiscated-post-katrina/
The story didn't mention it, but people were shooting at cops, helicopters, ultility workers, shooting at firemen....Oh yeah, sounds like they would know exactly who was doing this and who to arrest....Schmuck.
start shooting the looters with live rounds. that would stop all that bullshit !!!!
You looking to start a civil war?
There is going to be a gosh damn civil war in this country anyway Gnat. Get your head out of your ***!
nope. just making sure the looters understand that if they attempt to steal, they will be shot on site !! guaranteed to keep them at bay.
the current administration seems to want that to happen !!!! the true race baiters are at the top and continue to divide this nation.
THERE WILL BE NO ******* CIVIL WAR. IN two years you will vote, lose anotehr elction, and you still won't be arrested for being republican. Now I'll see all yall at the 6th annual Obama's Comming fer Mah gunz Sale. Don't forget your armbands....
you really don't get it Gnat. yes there will be a civil war. that's what Obama wants so he can declare martial law. that would also give him the means of a possible third term. get your head out of the sand and figure out what's really going on in this country.
Are you stupid or just acting like it Gnat?
they will blame everybody other than themselves for their actions. they seemed to have learned that from Obama. shift the blame and act like you didn't know. what a crock of **** !!
I say the bring in the military.
So they are protesting because of the curfew. So the curfew is lift the madness will end. That is great.
But...the national guard is still going to be there. If nothing goes on tonight, it will be the first not since all of this started.
Why not...that worked so well in Afghanistan and Iraq. Maybe it is time we walk the talk in our own country--especially when "we the people" are paying for it all with our taxes.
Haven't you heard ... it's not the people of Ferguson that is causing this chaos ...The people that are burning and looting are outsiders, people from other cities and states that have come in to destroy Ferguson. This has been stated in a recent article
What's the betting some of them are republicans or far right wing people just looking to stir up the race pot a little? I wouldn't be surprised.
@gnat ... I'm not gonna sit here and start to pick apart these thugs politics ... thugs are thugs no matter if they vote red, blue, green, yellow or purple ... while it sounds like there have been peaceful protests (and they have every right to do that) in regards to this matter they have been drowned out by those once again who want to blame others for their own actions
I am neither demo or repub, and I can say without reservation that the stupid demo's are the one's with a history or creating chaos.
@Breeze ... Well this spring I'm thinking if you took a poll over in Utah and those that gathered to support Cliven Bundy those numbers would have come out pretty red ... in that case cooler heads did prevail but it wouldn't have taken much of a spark to ignite some kind of confrontation between those who thought they were right and those that were trying to do their job ... I think all demographics have their fair share of idiocy they can lay claim to
Chaotic anarchy is not anarchy, Anarchy means without leaders, not with out order. This purely chaos and capitalist inspired opportunism.
Those aren't anarchists, they're nihilists in black. And please don't start with the crap about how one moron calling himself an anarchist makes him one. Nazis called themselves National Socialists while nignoring socialism and arresting anything farther left than they were. Just because I call myself hispanic doesn't make me hispanic.
Plus I'm willing to bet 50% of those guys are just trying to make anarchists look bad. Remember cointelpro? That **** still happens.
This nonsense would never happen in a police state or in a country governed by Sharia law...
And those are good things..........why?
I was being facetious. Guess I've been around too long and seen too much to get excited by a minor disturbance like Ferguson. All hell broke out in this country when Martin Luther King Jr was shot. I think that was the closest this country came to having a civil war since 1864. But we managed to survive both crises without losing the Representative Republic that our founding fathers set up for us. Ben Franklin wold be proud of how "we the people" muddled our way through them. Absolute power corrupts absolutely!
