Grungehamster: mjohnson71: Well, hopefully black votership will increase in Ferguson.

Matthew Yglesias had a great article about how if anything good comes out of this mess it's highly likely that civic participation will increase in the area. May not fix any sort of perceived wrongs but might go a long way to give people a feeling that they have a say in what goes down around them.


When only white people vote you get the guy who looks like the assistant manager of the body shop at the local Chevy dealership.

So now that we know the cop got a skull fracture, only one question remains:  Who should I loot and throw molotov cocktails at?

Meh, good and bad are relative. Compared to 8 stab wounds, 4 stab wounds are good, and 1 stab wound would be great.

Dinobot: Twitter was reporting that one of the CNN guys was snitching out Indy media to the cops so they would be removed and arrested from the Media area.


If you don't have a press pass, you're not "indy media," you're a tourist. Your blog doesn't make you media. Get a job.

Clemkadidlefark: I guess the children in Fark's audience missed the part about the Department of Justice sending agitators to Ferguson to educate blacks how to riot. Then Eric Holder shows up and things quiet down. Guess ya'll missed that part ..


Get back to your trailer and spend your disability check on Wilson's defense fund.

b0rg9: Bowen: "I want to protest this injustice...but I can't find my poncho."

Is that a Mexican poncho or is that a Sears poncho?


It's a Romney trash bag.

Dansker: For every one blogger or amateur video reporter doing something worthwhile, there's a million others flooding the media landscape. And if you're just standing in a media pen with a bunch of other reporters, you're not contributing something valuable.


What is the harm of letting them stand in the media pen.  Why is there a media pen at all?

newton: "The police confiscated no handguns after removing three the night before."

Yes, three guns- all very new in appearance, all the same make and model.
Kinda funny... looking.

Litterbox: stovepipe: The huffingtonpost video is rather disturbing.  The "knife wielding" man did not appear to be threatening the officers at all.  They just rolled up, got out, and shot him dead.  No talking, just shooting.  That is all kinds of farked up.

And if you believe thats what actually happened, then you are an idiot.  Nobody is even questioning this shooting because it was legitimate and appropriate use of force.


In before he was paying for the cigars he was whittling a block of wood for a merit badge

The democrat protestors probably ran out of stuff to steal. This break in the other peoples property destruction and shopping (looting) spree should give AG holder and his taxpayer wasting army of FBI agents and lawyers a chance to drum up his Mississippi Burning moment.

Yes.  Because clearly only those individuals with government approval are entitled to freedom of the press.
