(Huffington Post)   You knows what's funny? A St. Louis alderman was arrested in the Ferguson riots for "not listening." Okay maybe less funny 'ha ha' and more funny 'uh oh' (Possibly not safe for work images in sidebar articles)   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 289

French has been critical of the police response to the protests -- which has included officers firing tear gas and wooden bullets at crowds

What are they, freakin vampires? I hope the cops are prepared to clean up big piles of bloody goo.

Relax, everyone. I'm sure when all this has calmed down that President Obama will invite Michael Brown and the Officer who killed him to the White House for a beer.

This was blowing up last night, no national coverage. I guess all the honkey reporters were at home in their warm beds. Finally FINALLY the nation wakes up to this shiat.

These farkup cops are attacting none violent, peaceful protesters. This isn't farking Tiananmen Square.

They also did no favors for cop who shot Brown...the Jack Boots actions ensure a conviction of this officer during trial (if charged)

nekom: Remember when the people had the right to peaceably assemble?  Good times.


In 2004 the Democrat Convention being held in Boston set up Free Speech Zones far away from where the actual conventional was being held. As far as I can remember the zone was located under or near a highway and inside a fenced in area. When you cannot peacefully excercise your right to peacefully assemble in the city where the American Revolution began way back when, then you're farked.

What is it you think Obama should DO in tis situation? Go over the governor's head and nationalize the national guard? Send in the army?

Problem: Federal law prevents military from being used for law enforcement.
Solution: Militarize law enforcement.

Is Obama suppose to leap up and deploy the national guard the instant anything happens, then? Seriously, again. What do you think he should be doing?

I'd like him to say in his speech that this is the price we've paid for increased militarization of the police.

I mean, he won't, but uh... there ya go.

I think the police chief should be arrested, all the police in Ferguson should be out of a job, minimum, and if it takes the federal government to take charge and make that happen, then sobeit.  The state government should have already done that by now, though.

Unless it's to harass women trying to enter an abortion clinic, in which case telling people to stay back 12 paces from the entrance is an egregious violation of their constitutional rights.
