What It Was Like In The Streets
On Ferguson’s Worst Night

Buzz Feed News, by Joel Anderson

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 8/19/2014 7:45:47 AM

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere. State troopers in riot gear and armored trucks moved south on West Florissant, firing flash grenades and tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters who only minutes before had been

Color me skeptical.

A reporter was hanging out in McDonalds until suddenly the rioting came in his direction and he ran like a rabbit.

The rest is just self-justification.

This insurrection needs to be put down, but they´ve lost the will to do what´s needed.
Same liberal mentality that is afraid to go after terrorists becsuse it "will only make them mad´.
As liberals reap, so shall they sow.
And America suffers.

So why do all these reporters show up at street riots with dead cell phones? Is McDonalds an official recharging station?

1. Dawn to dusk curfew.
2. "Protest" during the day.
3. Shoot ALL looters.
4. Bring in the "stuck on "stupid" general from New Orleans/Katrina.
5. Banish Al Sharpton et al.
6. Make it clear that the officer involved will not be sacrificed to the mob.

Pat Buchanan is right. The Silent Majority is sitting and watching in anger at whats happening. This may bring out some Democrats, but the Silent Majority will get even in November.

#5, should be dusk to dawn curfew.

Other than that, I would be checking ID´s. If you don´t live in Fergusen, mandatory eviction from city.

Calm would be restored shortly.

The community wants calm and safety to return to the streets of Ferguson? Stay home. Stay away. The black author is just asking for trouble sticking his nose into it.

FTA: "Behind us was a group of boys, none older than 18, who took the opportunity to smash the glass of an auto parts store."

"The opportunity"????

I´m happy that occasional articles from other points of view are posted here since time limitations don´t often let me seek news sources other than Lucianne. It´s always good to read things from different perspectives.

I´ve stopped watching all coverage of Ferguson, MO. It started last week on The Five (what a bunch of cacklers - men and women) when Eric Bolling (who I usually like) started in on the Ferguson PD and how incompetent they were with their press relelses, etc and of course, cutesy Dana Perino had to jump in with her critique. News to Eric and Dana - not evryone in small town American are the media sophisticates that you are. Then on Saturday morning Fox and Friends, the blond hostess (with short hair) was mouthing off on the militarization of police and how all this military hardware is being given to police and most of them haven´t even been through boot camp. I kid you not. And then last night on Lou Dobbs (of all people) he was aggressively challenging the Republican Lt Gov of Missouri about what he was doing to get people to talk to each other. Why are the people who are NOT rioting in the streets being treated like they´re the problem?

Thankfully I did watch a few minutes of Megyn Kelly with an appearance by Mark Furhman who said that the job description of a police officer is not to get killed on duty when trying to explain/defend Officer Wilson´s action.

So the rioters are destroying because they think they are being discriminated against to the point that they are killed in cold blood by the police and their answer is to give evidence that enforces the worst stereotypes people might have of black people? In other words, they want to change people´s opinion of black people and not discriminate against them and they think they will accomplish that by looting and rioting and thereby re-enforcing what bigots think of blacks? And President Obama complains that those who see a black man on the street and cross the street to avoid them are displaying an irrational prejudice? From this behavior, it would seem crossing the street would be the least one might do.

I´m wearing my skeptical hat. BUT! I´m starting to wonder if the police are not becoming Gestapo. The story describes some police behavior that is just not good. I´ll wait for more reports. But, as an ex-cop I am starting to think the police are getting out of control.

Look at the bright side -- several worthy groups are making a tidy profit out of this -- notably the looters, the race hustlers, and above all, the news media, who are goosing up their viewership/readership figures, thereby attaining higher advertising sales revenues. Don´t expect any of these fine people to stop encouraging the rioting any time soon. Money talks.

All, of course, to the detriment of the ordinary citizens of Ferguson. Color me disgusted.

The media is disgusting, but even worse are the "commentators" who throw around their opinions around as fact. It is obvious they have an agenda and only want to stir the pot. It truly is disgusting. They are driving a narrative that is extremely dangerous and leads to more unrest. This is highly irresponsible and the networks need to reign this in now.

The most stupid article I´ve read this morning is that the Washington Redskins came out of the tunnel in the Monday Night football game with their hands held high supporting the blacks in Ferguson.

Now I know they all have concussions and most of them probably have records of brain damage or both. As I said yesterday in a response to another article, I´m through with Pro Sports... period.

You´re catching on, son. If the actions of one violent, thieving misfit can cause eight days of rioting and looting, imagine what a whole outraged group could do. I can´t believe spectators are driving from other towns to witness this animal behavior.

What did they expect officer Wilson to do, put his gun away and let the monster kid stomp him into the ground?

I knew this situation would be handled wrong, and would spin out of control, when I read that Officer Johnson cried when speaking to a crowd. This is what we´ve done to men, leaders (so-called), police captains in this society. They don´t know how to re-establish and maintain order... they cry. I give the country about 20 years; then we´ll have a president Al-Sharpton-type - with all other offices and posts compromised to a similar degree.

Good for starters, #5.

In addition, I´d treat this like a neighborhood ravaged by a fire, flood, hurricane, or other natural disaster: establish checkpoints and allow only those living or working in the neighborhood in. A national ID would go a long way in determining who might have legitimate business there.

The police are showing a remarkable amount of restraint considering they are coming under fire on a regular basis. Hope they are catching the shooters. Their top priority is to get home to their spouses and children at the end of their shift. Have to imagine that PC is the only reason the police have not come down hard on the mobs. Would hate to see PC lead to the death of a police officer.

It´s the best reality TV of the summer. The timing is great. Nothing much happens until later. So after the news you can brush your teeth, put on your jammies, and turn on that night´s Ferguson riot. On the other hand, if you are up late watching with some friends, you can even bet on who will be arrested next. "I´ll take the guy in the white T shirt with the bottle in his hand. Uh oh! There they go ... aw heck! Got the guy next to him. OK. Ante up again. I´ve got the woman with the pink hair."

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Behind the rotten culture is arrogance. After uniformed officers failed to take out 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez when he hopped over the fence and ran into the White House, the Secret Service issued a statement saying the officers “showed restraint.” The statement provoked laughter among senior FBI officials. But in its arrogance, the Secret Service thought it could get away with issuing such an outrageous claim and the public would accept it.With similar hubris, the agency leaves the doors to the White Horse unlocked. The idea is that the vaunted Secret Service can handle any problem and can waive the

Accountability: Turns out the Secret Service — which has one job to do — let a knife-wielding intruder all the way into the East Room of the White House. Can´t anyone in government do anything right these days? Time was when the Secret Service seemed an exemplar of professionalism and dedication, an agency with a focused mission and largely immune from the bureaucratic bumbling inherent to big government. In recent years, it´s seemed more like Animal House. The intruder blew past one guard and was stopped only by an off-duty officer. And this was one of hundreds of apparent security breaches.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

BOSTON — Many Massachusetts households are going to see their electric bills shoot up 37 percent this winter, a rate increase that some advocates fear will put additional strain on low-income families. State regulators approved the increase for National Grid household customers that would mean an average of $33 per month more for the typical residential customer and would push a typical monthly bill higher than $150. Large-business customers will see even higher increases. National Grid has almost 1.3 million residential and business electric customers in Massachusetts. The new rates take effect in November.
