I suppose the Holocaust survivor/activist was technically arrested by St. Louis PD, not Ferguson, so they have that going for them.

THIS IS NOT A GAME OF POKEMON! THEY DO NOT HAVE TO CATCH THEM ALL!

Lord knows what sort of damage a 90 year old lady who survived the Holocaust could have done if these brave warrior cops hadn't restrained her.  My Gawd, don't people know that she could have spread guilt in full auto mode?  There could have been hundreds of citizens reduced to weeping and clutching their cell phones to call their poor mothers who are sitting at home all alone without a thought or a prayer headed their way?  It could have brought the city to a standstill!

stan unusual: Lord knows what sort of damage a 90 year old lady who survived the Holocaust could have done


On one hand, it sounds like she's one of the folks who goes around and does shiat like this "professionally," and if she was blocking an entrance, then she was basically asking to get arrested.

On the other hand, this is exactly why terrible decisions by police departments and other local government people can grow into giant clusterfarks like this. They had this shiat pretty quieted down a few days ago, and then the retards at Ferguson PD released that robbery video, against the Fed's recommendation, and everything reignited. Now you have people who protest for real traveling to St. Louis and Ferguson to take the protest game there up a few notches.

Maybe there were told to stay in one section to protest and blocking the sidewalk was a no-no?  And I did like how the reporter said, "I think we're about to be arrested"  When clearly no one said anything about being arrested he just wanted them to move off the sidewalk. Attention whore reporter

 And seriously, cuffing a 90 year old woman... not the best thing to have televised.  This is what happens when policy trumps common sense.

If they can't be in the street, and they can't be on the sidewalk, and they can't be on private property like business parking lots, then where can they be? And as was pointed out in the video, they had been told they could be there on the sidewalk, and had been there all day up until that point.

There was a crazy ass nun who broke into ORNL Y12 a while back down here.  So yeah old crazy ladies do crazy shiat news at 11

They're trying like hell to get something going. Video release. Cancel school. Curfew. Nat. Guard. Autopsy.

Is there anyone with dark humor and good computer skills who'd like to put together a Ferguson arrest bingo card. We've already had an alderman, Getty photojournalists, on-air reporters, and now a Holocaust survivor. I'd like to nominate a Buddhist nun, a Roman Catholic monk, and a union rep.

So IS there some good reason why the National Guard isn't in control of Ferguson yet? Because the Missouri governor is a complete idiot? Or is there a less good reason I'm unaware of?

We had the Guard on the streets in L.A. in three days--and that was after the "OMG, they don't have ammo!" debacle.

90 year old holocaust survivor can tell which way the wind is blowing. When she was a child the police came and told all her people to disperse and wait in their homes in an orderly fashion. Wonder how that turned out...

Guys, I know Brick-House likely posted something idiotic and trolly because they happen to be an idiotic troll, but at least proofread your posts if you feel the need to call him out. I can't figure out what you're so mad about.

They had every right to release the strong arm robbery by Brown video...it was part of the investigation...it was part of the entire incident

Rioting over the actions of a violent person is an exercise of stupidity

This guy is looting a Family Dollar Store, which is why he's wearing a mask... no, not because he's worried about being caught and going to jail. Nope, the mask is out of pure shame.

You know, it's really, really hard for the mainstream media to keep sucking police dick all the time and making the protestors look like the bad guys when the cops keep harassing the reporters.

"And as his nightstick came down hard on my skull, I knew that he was doing it because he loves America so and wants to keep me safe."
