Pearce wrote on Twitter that the Ferguson police chief told him the arresting officers were "probably somebody who didn't know better."

Remember, these are the guys in the assault rifles and armored vests and tanks.

I just called Ferguson police chief to ask about @WesleyLowery and @ryanjreilly, told him what I knew. His response: "Oh, God." 

time to call in the adults ... isnt it ?
cant wait for the lawsuits to pile up on these asshole.

Actually I thought it was commendable that we went right to the source rather than immediately linking to Buzzfeed's interpretation of the Reddit thread based on a Tumblr post that analyzed Gawker's coverage of a Facebook screenshot of the Tumblr posts. It's nice to go right to the source for once.

Meh, I've been here a long time, I've found it to be a pretty good community.  Snark wins out in headlines, but we usually have someone take care of the important stuff, too.  So good on you for posting the actual article, the Twitter feed was fairly useless.

It's too bad it's Fark and we can't have a real discussion about how this police force might actually be dealt with, and whether it's likely that at minimum most can be fired. I can't imagine that in such a small town any of these guys could remain.

wouldn't it depend on what they are ordered to do.  for example, perhaps they could detain the police for being giant douchetards?

It's not a small town.  A small town is one where you can see the town limits when looking at the main intersection from all four directions.  A small town is one that has four officers, if they're lucky. And most importantly, no suburb of a major metropolitan area is a small town.

Actually, strike that. Most importantly, a small town police force does not own riot gear, tear gas, rubber bullets, or tanks...or has access to a SWAT team that does.

And a St. Louis alderman is currently in lockup.

In other countries, when they start arresting elected officials for no reason at all, we call that a coup.

Key to intelligence-led policing, whether or not charges are pressed: get their information, reveal nothing about yours. Gotta believe the St. Louis Terrorism Early Warning Group is having a great night of overtime.

Using that talking point, police should just start rounding up anyone with a bandana around their neck when they arrive for a 'peaceful' protest?  You know, the kind that the career protestors (the ones that fly in/drive in from out of state) advise everyone to bring/wear?

Causing an uprising suits the protestors in most situations these days, because if they can antagonize as severe enough response, it's the response that gets scrutinized as it's much easier to identify than a handful of faces in a very large and emotionally agitated crowd.

Message to the police.

We are recording you, assholes.  Yes, we can record you.   The courts say we can.  The Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling that says we can.  The courts even stated that this right is so obvious that you farking lose your immunity if you violate it, biatch.  So let me repeat.  We are recording you.  When you illegally stop one citizen from recording, another will still be recording and your actions will become public knowledge.

You're saying that militarising the civilian police has consequences?

Who'd have thought?

right because the cops should be attacking crowds and the press.  at this point in the "free" nation of america if you're attending a protest it would be wised to be prepared the cops to gas and beat you because they can.  the militarization of the police was always a farking bad idea.

The officers think they can't be farking touched. I want more people on the streets demanding answers about what these facists are doing. They're geared like they're fighting the farking Taliban and arresting journalists with no claims. Who the hell do we call to stop this? Are we on our own?

What is kind of funny is that my local McDonald's has signs up saying that you can only stay for 30 minutes at a time, similar to these:

cbsnewyork.files.wordpress.com

But they are not really legally binding, and it is the manager's job to ask anyone to leave who stays over.
 
2014-08-14 03:26:06 AM
Let me ask this again, since this seems to be the current Ferguson thread. I have a question. I heard a bit about that one militia group that showed up. I heard they showed up and were there to help or something, but I didn't hear anything about where they actually were or what they were doing. Anyone know what happened to them? What have they been doing all night?

It's a town of about 21,000 people, which seems fairly small to me (I live in a city of 100,000). Many of the SWAT forces are county (at least that's what the big armored truck says on it), and I believe they have people in from other local municipalities.

At any rate, it sure feels to me that these cops are totally out of control. It feels like the local chief has no control or oversight of them. This situation with the reporters underscores that.

Not yet. We have a crooked media trying to pit this on angry minorities and justify any unrestrained police action against protesters. In a week, nobody is going to talk of this unless the cops slip up and affect someone with power.
 
2014-08-14 03:31:26 AM
I'm finding it more and more amusing with every story like this that it seems that those people most likely to wail and gnash their teeth about the 'jack-booted thugs that will take away our freedom' also seem to be the first to applaud LEOs or other authorities that are *actually* behaving like jack-booted thugs.
