Michael Brown, Junior, was shot six times by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014 as noted on this blog while his body lay dead in the street for hours. Here is a complete guide to every eyewitness interview. The shooting was completely unjustified. The District Attorney has behaved disgracefully in the case and should have been removed by the Governor and replaced by a special prosecutor. Governor Jay Nixon, ominously, will speak on a college campus in St. Louis at 5:30PM and then the DA holds a press conference at 8PM to announce the grand jury decision. A premature leak of the decision seems likely, or false leaks.
The St. Louis County court system, whose prosecution is run by corrupt DA Bob McCulloch, is a Kafkaesque nightmare.
Someone on the ground in Ferguson, Missouri in the last 48 hours proved what had been researched by one of the participants on this blog: Mike Brown was at least 148 feet away from Darren Wilson’s police SUV when he was shot dead. As far as the public knows, the still-operative claim of investigating police is that he was shot 35 feet away from the vehicle.
Why does it have to be this way? Who can deny it’s happening?
Oklahoma’s taxpayers have now paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to make sure they don’t get health care they desperately need, through this clown’s office. Now he pulls a baffling legal stunt, very unlikely to succeed and probably guaranteeing a loss for his “cause” of robbing Oklahoma taxpayers of health care they already paid for.
This is some truly poor and absolutely deadly police work.
Talk back to a cop while black, this can happen to you in Ferguson.
Want to exercise your Constitutional rights and protest the above, when no one has even been arrested for doing it? The police have something for you.
The group called Islamic State took the Mosul Dam 8 days ago. Right now the US is attempting to bomb the forces holding it. If the floodgates are opened, or if it is accidentally hit by a bomb, it would flood a city of 1.5 million people.
The Missouri Governor has ordered the St. Louis County Police out of the Ferguson are tonight and has put the Highway Patrol (state police) in their place. This was apparently arranged after discussions with President Obama and Attorney General Holder. This is a crucial moment that is ripe for political opportunism and dirty tricks. If saboteurs or provocateurs are sent in to start violence or vandalism, or anti-government types take it on themselves to start arson, etc., Fox News and other national media outlets will pounce and criticize the “interference” of President Obama and the Department of Justice. This isn’t just paranoid thinking, things like this happened during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s. If you hear in a few hours that buildings are burning in Ferguson, remember this: St. Louis councilman Antonio French was arrested and jailed last night. He was ordered out of his car by belligerent police for “not listening” in Ferguson and told to leave his car keys on the seat. Here is what he said when he was released from jail.
