OK, so it's a guy with a handicam standing too far away to tell what's going on.

A bit ago he was up with a group of protesters with their hands up saying 'we are unarmed' and the police began shooting rubber bullets and tear gas. They retreated.

Were they being unruly?  These protests have gone on for four days now with violence and property damage breaking out fairly regularly, the police need to do something to either break it up or control it so that it doesn't get out of hand again.

No. They were standing there just as I said: arms up and saying they were unarmed. No one was running, no one was being aggressive.

This will not end well.
 
2014-08-13 10:23:53 PM  
The police have pushed some of the protesters into a residential neighborhood and herded demonstrators away from where most people parked. This is just genius moves on the part of St Louis. I'm stunned.

Nadie_AZ: In the US. Unreal.


It's really not. It's actually quite predictable and well in line with what everyone who studies people has been saying happens when the police have too much power since the founding fathers' own day.

This is merely the natural extension of allowing police to arm themselves.

No, it hasn't been regular. Those were looters, these are protestors. Two different sets of people. This is aggressive militarized police action against peaceful protestors in their own neighborhoods. This is where they live. Tear gas cans landing in their front yard. Rifles pointed at their chest. There is no excuse for this. None.
 
2014-08-13 10:24:56 PM  
Well, now I got it to work and it's not that much to see.

It doesn't look like the protesters were being violent.  They were blocking the road, but I don't know if that's grounds for the police to be able to order them to disperse or not.

It does seem like just ignoring them would be the more prudent move, but I'm sure that they don't want repeats of the looting and violence from Sunday and Monday either.

It's probably true that this group wouldn't be doing that, but if they did, or violence broke out, the police would have egg on their face and people would be crying that they didn't do anything.

It's a tough call for what should be done.
 
2014-08-13 10:28:31 PM  
The cops were firing right into people's yards. The tear gas grenades are igniting people's homes.

But a pretty easy one for what shouldn't be done. And they went with the latter. They chose poorly.

Haha, their Chief of Police is a farking racist. Great!

Outrageous. All police groups need to be demilitarized immediately. Hold them accountable. Police the police.

This is unbelievable. This is some of the most horrifically racist shiat I can imagine seeing on TV in this day and age. What the hell.
 
2014-08-13 11:08:55 PM  
As people have been noting, isn't the exact scenario NRA types say we all need to own guns for? Are gun-rights advocates in favor of citizens in Ferguson shooting back at the police? Would they root for them to kill cops?
 
2014-08-13 11:09:45 PM  
Not to mention this is one of the most blatantly unconstitutional things imaginable. Who the hell is in charge and ordering this shiat? Not only shooting tear gas cannisters to break up a protest, which is a 1st amendment right, but also preventing the press from reporting from there?
 
2014-08-13 11:09:51 PM  
And the teargas. Continues ...

make me some tea: HawgWild: make me some tea: HawgWild: Cliven Bundy and his idiotic supporters.

I win. You lose. Twas ever thus.

No one died in the Cliven Bundy nonsense.

No one has died in these protests, either (yet). But someone dying started them. Bundy and his goobers protested because the feds were trying to lawfully move some COWS.

Exactly. And there will be plenty of people who don't see any distinction between the two incidents.


The biggest difference thus far is that the police have been willing to move in on the St. Louis protesters, but Cliven's bunch are still sitting pretty.  Perhaps the BLM should have enlisted the St. Louis PD to deal with the Bundy ranch.

Of course. The cops are killing black people.
