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."

Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

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.

Some Capitol Hill lawmakers are baffled. What does President Obama want from Congress as he begins the U.S. military escalation in Iraq and Syria? The question wasn´t answered by the president´s much-anticipated speech Wednesday night. First, Obama seemed to tell Congress to mind its own business. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said, indicating he didn´t need or want any permission from the legislative branch to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.Then Obama added, "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

President Obama on Wednesday night outlined an open-ended campaign to combat the threat posed by the Islamic State, significantly expanding the counter­terrorism strategy that has been a hallmark of his presidency.Obama said in a prime-time speech televised from the White House that the United States will join “with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” using an alternative acronym for the group that has emerged in Iraq and Syria.Saying the United States is meeting the threat with “strength and resolve,” the president also sought to assuage the concerns of Americans who are

Americans overwhelmingly view Islamic State terrorists as a serious threat to vital U.S. interests and, in a significant shift, widely support airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.The nation’s increasingly hawkish mood will form part of the backdrop for a speech by President Obama on Wednesday, when he will outline his thinking on how to confront the threat from the Islamic State.

We know Derek Jeter by heart, so why all this memorizing? The between-pitches bat tucked up in his armpit. The fingertip helmet-twiddle. The left front foot wide open, out of the box until the last moment, and the cop-at-a-crossing right hand ritually lifted astern until the foot swings shut. That look of expectation, a little night-light gleam, under the helmet. The pitch—this one a slow breaking ball, a fraction low and outside—taken but inspected with a bending bow in its passage.

The United Nations Security Council met Thursday to discuss the Ukraine crisis for the 24th time this year, after reports indicated that Russian soldiers and weapons had crossed the border into eastern Ukraine to support insurgents there. Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said that Russia is not pulling back in Ukraine as it has repeatedly promised to do. "Russia has come before UNSC to say everything except truth. It has manipulated. It has obfuscated. It has outright lied," Power said. "We have learned to measure Russia by its actions, not its words. In last 48 hours, Russia´s actions have

But soon, this and other secrets that remain hidden away here at the Clinton Presidential Library may be unlocked. What did the Justice Department say about all the random requests for pardons? What kind of advice came from Clinton staffers such as now-Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan? What strategic thoughts were offered to the president and first lady Hillary Clinton on terrorism, Whitewater and health care reform? And what’s the library been

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and
