National Guard Deployed In Ferguson

MEANWHILE ALLEGATIONS OF PAST RACISM EMERGE AGAINST LOCAL COPS … Without notifying Barack Obama, Missouri Gov.

Without notifying Barack Obama, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has called out the National Guard in Ferguson, Missouri – where looting, rioting and violence continues in the wake of the shooting of an unarmed black man on August 9.

Nixon previously called in the Missouri State Highway Patrol after local police were unable to control the violence.

Citing “pre-planned” and “coordinated” violence, Nixon issued an executive order authorizing the use of National Guard resources – which he said would be used to “restore peace and order and to protect the citizens of Ferguson.”

“The third world drama unfolding in Middle America has been a sad commentary on multiple levels: The tragic loss of life, people rushing to judgment, the senseless destruction of property and the liberty-depriving overreaction by militarized local law enforcement,” we wrote over the weekend.

Now it looks like that sad commentary is about to get even sadder …

How did we get here?

According to witnesses, 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot nine days ago by police officer Darren Wilson while holding his arms up to indicate he was not carrying a weapon. Police have countered that narrative, saying Brown – a suspect in a convenience store robbery – engaged in a scuffle with Wilson prior to the fatal shooting. A private autopsy done at the behest of Brown’s family revealed he was struck by six bullets – one of which resulted in his death.

Family members have referred to his shooting as an “execution.”

Meanwhile information has come out portraying the Ferguson police department – which is comprised almost exclusively of white officers – as having a history of racist violence.  In one case, a black suspect was handcuffed in a jail cell and then allegedly beaten by four Ferguson police officers.

The man was innocent of the charge that led to his detention, but he was later charged with “property damage” because in the wake of the beating he received his blood got on the officers’ uniforms.

Unreal …

Listened to a discussion on this on NPR this morning. Very interesting. The guests volunteered how this whole situation could have been handled better. For one thing, they have been handling peaceful protesters the same as looters; and for another, the use of dogs doesn’t work and makes things worse. Cops only know force.

Vanguard16 August 18, 2014 at 2:21 pm

If only Mr. Brown had gotten out of the street when asked by the police to do so.

SCBlueWoman August 18, 2014 at 8:30 pm

Well, many many whites walk in the street and are never asked to move to the sidewalk, so what the hell is your point? Whites have preferential treatment over blacks? Umm. I’ve answered my own question and you are stupid.

Squishy123 August 18, 2014 at 9:34 pm

I don’t recall ever seeing anyone walk down the middle of the street more than a handful of times in my life. But then I don’t hang out in the hood.

shifty henry August 18, 2014 at 10:20 pm

Cruise Broad River Road between I-20 and Harbison Blvd — it’s a zoo with folks walking or riding bicycles in the median. And this is AFTER the city put in, specifically to help pedestrians, the new traffic lights and cross-walk systems. They just ignored the new improvements. I have actually seen them jaywalk just TEN FEET from the crosswalk.

American't August 19, 2014 at 9:01 am

I went shopping at Columbia Mall last Friday night, I need to take your advice and frequent “safer” parts of Columbia.

Squishy123 August 19, 2014 at 6:41 pm

I haven’t been to a mall in 6-7 years. Last time I was it was thug central.

American't August 20, 2014 at 10:28 am

It’s beyond that now. Very few national chains left, looks to be about 50% occupied. The spaces that are under lease appear to be occupied by Indian or Arab shopkeepers selling urban fashion and cheaply made gold jewelry. When I tell you myself and my son were the ONLY white people there (besides one employee at Journey’s), I’m NOT exaggerating. The Richland County Sheriff’s dept officer they had posted up there, who looked mildly retarded, was looking at me like I was a criminal, I assume for being white and looking completely out of place.

Squishy123 August 19, 2014 at 6:40 pm

Probably the same people who still cut holes in the fences and run across the highway like Mexicans crossing the border from project to project rather than take the James Clyburn overpass.

CorruptionInColumbia August 18, 2014 at 11:22 pm

Maybe more of them have the good sense to get the hell out of the road and let traffic pass, rather than ignoring the car trying to go down the road and pretending they don’t see them.

Sandi Morals August 18, 2014 at 3:01 pm

Whole situation could have been handled ‘better’ if the doped up thug had not commited a strong armed robbery and when stopped by police for something else become paranoid that the police knew about the robbery and attacked the police officer.

Karolyn August 18, 2014 at 4:11 pm

Oh, you were there and know this?

William K. Mulligan August 18, 2014 at 4:36 pm

You stated he committed a strong “armED” robbery. The charge is Strong Arm Robbery or Armed Robbery, but definitely not a Strong “Armed” Robbery, as you ignorantly stated.

Smirks August 18, 2014 at 4:44 pm

I see a lot of media outlets calling it a “strong-armed robbery.” Is “strong armed” not a proper term?

Tazmaniac August 18, 2014 at 5:22 pm

Actually the term is strong arm robbery, indicating weapons were not needed due to physical advantage over the victim. I know you were JK about the pot, but have you ever experienced someone dusting? Witnessed a unarmed, short, but stocky dude running with a cash register with the counter top still bolted to the bottom of it. Took a dozen men and choking him to subdue and cuff him. He broke his own forearms when he came to with the cuffs on. Had one come at me and bite me in the chest. I broke his ribs, collarbone, arm, and tried to twist his neck in to breaking and he still wanted to go at it.

Karolyn August 18, 2014 at 4:50 pm

Not me. You responded to the wrong person.

William K. Mulligan August 18, 2014 at 4:25 pm

It’s called “Strong Arm” Robbery, he was not armed.

Nölff August 18, 2014 at 4:44 pm

shifty henry August 18, 2014 at 6:33 pm

I don’t think he needed pot to become violent, but he shows in the store video his’ thug’ attitude — he was looking for trouble and was ready to intimidate anyone on his stroll…..

Soft Sigh from Hell August 18, 2014 at 5:44 pm

Or if a ‘roided’-up cop had had better control of himself.

Squishy123 August 18, 2014 at 5:59 pm

Really? You know this how? Is there video of the cops actions… there is of the dead thug.

Soft Sigh from Hell August 18, 2014 at 6:52 pm

I figured I’d just balance out a tiny bit all the assumptions going the other way. You know, like “drugged up” and “rushing the cop.”

Squishy123 August 18, 2014 at 9:33 pm

So your disputing the coroner’s report of drugs in his system? Has the statement of a struggle in the car been found to be false?

Soft Sigh from Hell August 19, 2014 at 8:21 pm

“Drugged up” has a different implication than simply having drugs detectable in one’s system. And it’s hard to truly “rush” inside a car.

Yes wouldn’t it be nice if they could just make an announcement:
Please, all peaceful protesters stand on the west side of the street and anyone who plans to or has been looting stand on the east side of the street. When the horn blows, we are going to gas you criminals but please be aware that the winds may shift and this may cause the gas to cross the street.
Yes, yes indeed. That is how the entire riot and crowd control thing should be handled. Karolyn, my dear, I hope you understand sarcasm because you really sound about as clueless as they come. NPR guests – certainly they are a balanced group.

Karolyn August 18, 2014 at 4:12 pm

NPR is more balanced than any of the other media. Try it some time. You might learn something.

American't August 19, 2014 at 8:58 am

I am fairly conservative, but find NPR to be a lot more listenable and truthy than most liberal media outlets. I listen to All Things Considered a few times a week and find their world reporting to be pretty balanced. They DO NOT deliver balanced reporting when it comes to the Obama administration, nor have they remained unbiased throughout this Ferguson situation. I listened to ATC yesterday for about 90 minutes, during which they referred to “Mike Brown, the black teen shot by a white cop” at least 30 times. At one point it occurred to me that they must be getting a stipend from the NAACP every time they utter that phrase. I’d say they are balanced on some things, Ferguson is NOT one of them.

They are racists, plain and simple. They ignore facts and choose to cast the entire black race as degenerate and second class. It reminds me of a young upstart Southern German political party back in the 1920’s.

TyroneMamaCollards August 18, 2014 at 2:40 pm

Don’t accuse the cops of violating the law or civil rights of a person, when you by yourself or with a group of other people are violating the law by looting and doing bad things. Whatever happened to MLK’s and Gandhi’s advice about non-violent disobedience? Stop blaming others for your own failures and shortcomings.

CollardShoBeGood August 18, 2014 at 3:17 pm

You’re absolutely right, civil disobedience may allow for the hurling back of tear gas canisters hurled at “peaceful protestors”, but it does not allow you to bring molotov cocktails to a “peaceful protest”.

Police report that at 12:30pm a young student’s life ended
during a shooting at the 10700 block of the West Florissant Avenue in Ferguson,

Unidentified witnesses reported that a scuffle broke out police
when a youth robbed a local QuickTrip (QT) and refused to obey the lawful
orders of a police officer to get out of the street. The youth then attempted
to assault the officer Shots later rang out as the confrontation moved in and out
of the officer’s patrol vehicle where young assailant Michael Brown(Big Mike)
lost his life.

“He was like a brother to me” stated DeShawn Tyrone
Brown (OldKeezy) , who was Michael ‘s oldest son out of eight children.
“He was a couple of grades behind me, but I would see him on the
playground at my school selling drugs almost every day – and if I didn’t do my
homework, he would threaten the teacher with a knife. He taught me a lot about
life. Starting when I was about 5 or 6 he used to come into my room at night,
reach into my underwear and fondle my junk. He said to me, “Son, this is
gonna happen to you a lot when you go to prison – so get used to it”. I
never forgot that.

The principal of McCluer High reports that Michael, known as
Big Mike to his classmates, enjoyed sucker-punching smaller kids at the bus
stop, and always had a quick smile while he took other student’s lunch money in
the bathroom. He further added that Michael was voted “Most Likely to be
Convicted of a Felony” and also “Most Likely to be Tried as an
Adult” by his 6th Grade Class. He was quite popular with the older kids in
school because he was over the age of 19 and he could buy liquor for them in
exchange for stolen TV’s or sexual favors”.

His basketball coach fondly remembers that Michael was
“usually drunk or high” during practice and would often threaten to
shoot the referee or opposing team’s coach if his team was losing. “He was
always ready to pull out his gun and start blasting if he didn’t like the Ref’s
call” Coach Powell said.

Paramedics who reached the scene several hours after the
shooting was reported indicated that they saw a youth laying on the ground.
“I saw that he was shot in the head” said one Paramedic. “So I
thought, no big deal. These youths can usually take a Bazooka round to the
noggin and still get up and rob a liquor store no problem. But then I saw that
a bullet might have grazed him near the groin area and I knew he was a
goner….” After remaining on the sidewalk for several hours, Michael was
declared goodified. “We had to poke him with a stick a few times to make
sure he was really dead. The Paramedic continued, “I was getting worried –
I mean, we sure as hell didn’t want to administer CPR. Who knows what kind of
diseases he could have had?”

Michael’s mother was convinced that Michael s death was a
police conspiracy. “He wuz a good boy. He was turning his life around and
was about to release a Rap CD, he was goin to school – who woulda done him like
this?” Blubbering and wailing, his mother demanded to know “Who was
going to pay fo’ all of dis?” and asked for some money to buy cigarettes
and booze. “Oh Lawzy, I’m gonna get muh GROOVE on tonight!” she

Funeral arrangements are unclear at this point, but the
family has requested donations of “40’s, blunts, and KFC” in lieu of
cards or flowers. “Dat muffugah dead – what in tha’ hell he gonna do wit’
flowers?” an unidentified relative was quoted as saying.

Unlike some people, I’m not going to pretend I know what really happened. But I think the Ferguson police chief will go down in history as one of the worst crisis managers to ever live. His actions have been horrible, starting with allowing Michael Brown’s body to lie out in the street for hours.

easterndumbfuckistan August 18, 2014 at 3:22 pm

They couldn’t move the body until forensics from which ever agency investigates officer involved shootings arrived and processed the scene. Even placing a sheet over the body would have been frowned upon by the investigators and any attorney dealing with the case later would try to use it as evidence of a cover-up. (Pun kinda intended). This happens all they time, though usually they will try to use vehicles, etc. to attempt to hide the body from public view.

shifty henry August 18, 2014 at 4:08 pm

Agree – there should have been some privacy provided, even if was a tent(s). I think that leaving the guy open to view added to disturbances that came later.

Tazmaniac August 18, 2014 at 4:43 pm

Just think how long the investigation would have taken if the scene on that hot street didn’t smell like pot roast, making everyone rush for lunch.

And releasing the footage of the supposed robbery.

Karolyn is a racebaiter August 18, 2014 at 4:41 pm

Why should that be protected from the public? What should have happened was the little Indian man should have popped a cap in his fat ass right on camera and this would have never gotten on the 6 o’clock news. Grabbing a box of cigars so he could make some blunts to sell to the brothers on the corner. I hope you go outside and protest and they gas your stupid ass, sick some South Carolina police dogs on you and then you find a nice neighborhood to loot where you will find out what is what.

Karolyn August 18, 2014 at 4:51 pm

Smirks August 18, 2014 at 4:59 pm

Funny how you’re the racebaiter when there’s trolls commenting under names like “Tyrone’s Funeral Home and Rims” and “TyroneMamaCollards”.

These Michael Brown posts sure bring out the white surpemacists lurking around.

“White Supremacists” or people who have gradually grown sick and tired of the apologists for outrageous, bad behavior, by someone because they happen to be Black?

I don’t think a real White Supremacist would know how to spell “NPR”, let alone know what it meant. Just saying.

Not buying it. He roughed up the clerk for some reason and his “friend” admitted he stole the cigs. Another one bites the dust and the taxpayers are saved $$$$.

The Colonel August 18, 2014 at 9:54 pm

Blatantly obvious that he had snatched the box from the store clerk, he did not pay for the cigars, but nice try.

Original Good Old Boy August 18, 2014 at 4:41 pm

Supposed? His buddy admitted it was him.
They probably released the footage so that they could begin to show the “other side” of the story — you know, the one that all the looter, rioters, and agitators didn’t wait to hear before they rushed to judgment about evil whitey cop gunning down sweet, gentle-giant, unarmed, college-bound, child.

Tazmaniac August 18, 2014 at 5:01 pm

“And releasing the footage of the supposed robbery.”

It must have been difficult to see listening to NPR, but the video clearly showed that fat fuck stealing, very clumsy-like, a case of boxes of cigars. He did it so stupidly it honestly made him look like a specials needs kid left unattended. What didn’t look that way was the way he grabbed and shoved that little Indian guy who had the stones to point out to that dummy he should pay for them. It was plainly him, and people are sick of the rush to convict a cop or any other law abiding citizens that won’t willingly take an ass kicking just because someone can give them one. Even that dolt “gentle giant” was told in kindergarten to keep his GD hands to himself and don’t take things that don’t belong to him. I wish that store owner had emptied a magazine into him as a deterrent to other idiots like him no matter their race. And yes, that speaks to his demeanor in the cop encounter.

SCBlueWoman August 18, 2014 at 8:23 pm

More of that video was released later, shows that M. Brown PAID for the cigars. But you don’t want to hear that do you?

Squishy123 August 18, 2014 at 9:31 pm

So explain the strong arming the store owner as he left. The thug never paid a dime. Please post a link to this so called extra video.

Bible Thumper August 19, 2014 at 12:56 am

Daily Kos had it but the search link is now gone.
Google search “brown paid for the cigars” and you find some obscure sites.

Squishy123 August 19, 2014 at 6:37 pm

At what point did he pay, after he shoved the store owner? Maybe he paid for them only after he got caught.

Bible Thumper August 19, 2014 at 6:54 pm

I’m not sure, but there was an interview where the merchant’s lawyer denied he paid and a the robbery was reported just after in incident, 10 minutes before the shouting.

I believe Daily Kos retracted their story. Cigars are usually kept behind the counter. Micheal appears to ask for cigars or reach over at the counter and hands them to his buddy before the altercation.

Sandi Morals August 18, 2014 at 9:42 pm

Sadly most everyone knows that the Guard troops most likely will not be given live rounds or rubber bullets.

Original Good Old Boy August 18, 2014 at 4:44 pm

From what I’ve read from other National Guardsmen who have been stationed during similar events, most will not have live rounds, but a few sharpshooters will have live rounds to deal with any obvious threats.

Squishy123 August 18, 2014 at 9:35 pm

Maybe they can be issued ear plugs and have liberal news reporters point out all of the rubber bullets on the street.

The marijuana in his system is a non-issue. At least it should be to most people.
He didn’t deserve to die for committing a violent felony either.
If, however, the tussled with the cop and went for his weapon, and then turned to charge him (as the cop and at least one other unidentified witness claims), then he certainly earned his own death.
