Redskins Run Onto Field Before Game
with Hands Up for Michael Brown

CBS DC, by Staff *

Original Article

Posted By:AltaD, 8/19/2014 10:28:22 AM

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.

Obama and his despicable henchmen (Sharpton, Holder, Jarrett, et al) have ripped this country apart.

Congratulation. Mission accomplished.

NFL games are more like Bloods Vs Crips than a sport, with far too many psychotics gesturing wildly for attention on what was once a team sport. If the preseason games are an indication of the coming season, the NFL will be dominated by dreadlocked freaks along with yellow flags and endless reviews that eliminate the remaining spontaneity of pro football.

There will surely be moments of silence at the season opening games for Michael Brown, whose scholarship to play football-without-classroom at Missouri, Alabama or Florida State was ended before he could even be kicked off the team.

It astounds and disgusts me when individuals glorify illegal behavior because of black solidarity. Trayvon Martin´s JV record was suppressed, and his motives and actions were sanitized to be just this sweet, young, innocent little boy. Far from the truth and facts.

Jake Tapper´s video on CNN last night was akin to Shepherd Smith standing on the bridge during Katrina. Very inflammatory on the poor, innocent citizens just trying to voice their concerns, and the big, bad police presence.

They are tearing apart their community. Totally out of control with agitators riling up the crowds, and very little objective reporting on the real facts behind the case. I keep seeing references to "witnesses report that Michael Brown had his hands in the air." Very few reports from witnesses who say he was charging the policeman.

Shame, SHAME on Redskin players for glorifying this thief!

I don´t watch Redskin football ever since their coach George Allen kicked a field goal against the Giants with a 20 (?) point lead and 3 seconds to play. Asked why he did that he responded, "my kicker needed the practice."
Typically what comes from DC. I will guarantee that every Redskin player who had his hands up was not only black, but has spent time in court for drug use, woman abuse, DUI, holdups or many other acts again American citizens. But what the hell, they´re black and are entitled.

CBS headline writers sucked me in on this piece.... The headline makes it seem like the team took part in this stupid, racist display; the first sentence, however, tells us that only "several Redskins players" acted like fools. If they´re not fined, shame on Dan Snyder. [We stopped watching/rooting for the Redskins when they let Art Monk go to the Jets in ´94.]

CBS DC staff got their story wrong:
Several Redskin players reminded viewers of Michael Brown on the opening kickoff when they rushed headlong toward the opposing team.

Prosecutors said Saturday that one of the men charged in the Aug. 20 slaying of a 9-year-old Chicago boy had this reaction when he hopped into a getaway car: "I just hit a shorty.

(Snip) Along the way, Allmon ran into Antonio Smith, who said "Hey" to him, according to prosecutors. In response, Allmon pointed his gun at Smith and shot the child multiple times, prosecutors said.

Deerfield-based Walgreens set the stage to acquire its remaining 55 percent stake of Alliance Boots on Wednesday while rejecting an option to reincorporate overseas to save on corporate taxes, a move applauded by U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and labor unions and punished — at least for a day — by investors. Walgreens explored the tax implications of what is called a corporate inversion, but its board decided not to pursue the tax reduction strategy that has become controversial and was assailed by President Barack Obama as a tax dodge.(Snip) In rejecting inversion, Wasson said politics, public opinion and potential intense

But instead of putting a floor on what people get, why not put a ceiling on how much they get to keep?(Snip)Suppose that people, after paying ordinary income taxes, would be allowed to keep up to, say, $500,000 of their income, then would be obliged to give away the rest to the charities of their choice or, if they like, to a charity of their own design and creation.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

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.”
