Thieves, anarchists and Leftists from out of town come there to riot, loot and harass. Criminals rule the Governor, which is ass backwards like most of the Leftist policies destroying American to the state it's in today. A dishonest President giving slick approval to the rule of the street criminals caused this.

The storyline is a little misleading. The FBI has taken over operational control of the investigation and protests, but the local police haven't been relieved (at least not yet).

What a shame that some use this terrible tragedy as an excuse to burn Quick Trip and steal shoes. Their action delegitimize the peaceful protests and do nothing to aid the investigation. The community itself should handle the idiots burning and stealing if they want to do anything more than reinforce stereotypes .

Having the new black panther party there, which have openly called for the killing of white babies and white people in general is a sure way to calm tensions in the community. Obama has blown his dog whistle lets see which mutts come running. Oh, there's jay Nixon, come here boy. Heel good boy

He instructed the AG Holder to not go after the New Black Panthers for their violence and threatening at polls and otherwise even now fomenting unrest and violence. His words imply that the street thugs are actually peaceful protesters. He mentions journalists should not be arrested, when the journalists were using the McDonalds for their office and impeding business. He has all the wrong focuses because he's a former crack and PCP user with a destroyed brain.

It's not the weapons and equipment to blame, its their attitude and mentality. They have little conscience, its them versus the civilians. If you think it will get better , you are wrong. A tyrannical republican tea party president will come in and escalate what bush and Missourian John Ashcroft started with their homeland security war on terror. You will miss the redefined of the Obama administration If you have law enforcement friends, they will turn on you in the name of terrorism. It will happen in rural areas, no one is immune from the police state.

I understand the academy has openings if you think you can do better. LE is going to a black mob wanting white people to die...you really don't want to go in there without training. Don't take a tree hugger to a gun fight. Have you noticed the fire and rocks being thrown at innocent guys in a line? I grew up in DC with the blacks. Very few and I mean very few are decent. They were given brand new high rise apartments and within one year they were a total wreck and had to be torn down. I would not harm them, but I don't want to live with them again.

This is big news in our state 15 and it's gotten the attention of many.
I first saw the news in the Rochester, NY forum. Now they are speaking of
it in Greeneville, TN.

President Obama speaks on the matter .. after speaking about Iraq.


Even Mr. Tolles made a post on this one.

There is no excuse for this rioting and the police aren't helping matters much.

The Truth About the Ferguson Riots and Martial Laws

17 hrs ago

They want riots and they want Martial Law. Ferguson is a trial balloon for the entire country. The police are harassing the reports and were all but awol when the actual looting was taking place.

Our police is being militarized because of us! WE are the ones that riot, WE are the ones that engage in gang warfare, WE are the ones that organize crime, WE are the dealing the drugs, the police are only responding to what WE are doing!
