Gov. Jay Nixon Declares State of Emergency, Curfew Amid Ferguson Riots

FERGUSON CURFEW:  Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declares a state of emergency and a curfew amid new Ferguson riots following the release of video by Police Chief Tom Jackson, showing unarmed black teen Michael Brown allegedly engaged in robbery incident at convenience store. He was shot 10 minutes later. The curfew runs from 12 midnight to 5 a.m. CDT.

#Ferguson official says they want to “clear streets” so they can get to people if they get sick in middle of night. There were cases in which the police was unable to get to people in need of help last night due to the looting.

Why is it that the onus is on the residents to control their anger via curfews, but the police officer in question is protected.

This latest round of rioting and looting could have been avoided had Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson heeded the Department of Justice’s request not to release the video. But Jackson sought to frame the cop’s excessive use of force by tearing down the victim.

Michael Brown Named as Suspect in QuikTrip Robbery Before Shooting Death

Michael Brown Named as Suspect in QuikTrip Robbery Before Shooting Death

SMOKESCREEN: Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen who was gunned by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, was a suspect in robbery in an incident at QuikTrip. Michael Brown was with his friend, Dorian Johnson, during the alleged robbery. He was also named a suspect.

Dorian Johnson’s lawyer confirms that his client told FBI cigars were taken from store before the teen was killed.  They allegedly stole a $48.99 box of wisher Sweets cigars.

Where are the Ferguson PD Report #2014-12391 and St. Louis County Police Report #2014-43984? Sorry, but riddling Michael Brown’s body over a $48.99 box of cigars is a travesty.

Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson identified as unarmed black teen Michael Brown’s shooter.  Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said there was a robbery at the QuikTrip that was caught on videotape. It is not clear if Michael Brown was involved in the robbery. He said there was an altercation between the cop and the teen, resulting in injury to the Officer Darren Wilson.

Fox News is reporting that Michael Brown was a robbery suspect. Then, what about his friend Dorian Johnson? Where is the footage from QuikTrip? They dragged Trayvon Martin through the mud and they are about to do the same thing with Michael Brown.

Officer Darren Wilson encountered Michael Brown at 12:01, second officer arrives at 12:04 pm, and then the unarmed teen is dead. Dorian Johnson was also named as a suspect in the robbery.

Here’s footage of the QuikTrip robbery:

Rep. Steve King: Ferguson Protesters of “Continental Origin” So Racial Profiling Not Factor

Rep. Steve King: Racial Profiling Not a Factor Since Ferguson Protesters of “Continental Origin”

WTF? Rep. Steve King proved once again why he is a raving lunatic. He was asked by Newsmax TV if the Congressional Black Caucus should investigate what’s occurring in Ferguson over the murder of unarmed black teen Michael Brown and he said it’s not necessary because they are all black. Huh?

“This idea of no racial profiling,” King said, “I’ve seen the video. It looks to me like you don’t need to bother with that particular factor because they all appear to be of a single origin, I should say, a continental origin might be the way to phrase that.” “I just reject race-based politics, identity politics” King concluded. “I think we’re all God’s children. We all should be held to the same standards and the same level of behavior.” Source: Huffington Post

Um, I guess I have to ask, where’s Steve King’s white hood?

President Obama has asked the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate the murder of Michael Brown. He said the police should not be “bullying and arresting’ reporters, as we saw last night when Ryan Reilly, with Huffington Post, and Wesley Lowery, with the Washington Post, were arrested, while doing their jobs.

The situation in St. Louis County continues to escalate as journalists have been arrested by cops. Huffington Post journalist Ryan Reilly was “assaulted and arrested.” Wesley Lowery, who works for the Washington Post, was also arrested. Both have been released.

From Wesley Lowery’s tweets, it sounds as if they are in the middle of a war zone:

Unarmed Black Man, Ezell Ford, Shot and Killed by LAPD Officers

The Los Angeles Police Department is under fire for the murder of an unarmed black man in South LA on Monday. Ezell Ford was shot three times while lying on the ground and complying with officers, his mother, Tritobia Ford, said.

The news release from the LAPD said the police had conducted an “investigative stop” in the Newton area. “During the stop, a struggle ensued, which resulted in an officer-involved-shooting. It is unknown if the suspect has any gang affiliations,” the news release said.  Ezell Ford died are being transported to a local hospital.

“They laid him out and for whatever reason, they shot him in the back, knowing mentally, he has complications. Every officer in this area, from the Newton Division, knows that — that this child has mental problems,” he said. “The excessive force … there was no purpose for it. The multiple shootings in the back while he’s laying down? No. Then when the mom comes, they don’t try to console her … they pull the billy clubs out.” Source: KTLA

This comes days after unarmed black teen, Michael Brown, was gunned down by a white Ferguson, Mo., officer as he and his friend, Dorian Johnson walked back to an apartment complex.

The NAACP is calling for a federal investigation into the July 14 beating of Barry Montgomery, a mentally disabled man, by Los Angeles sheriff’s deputiees. The man is reportedly left with permanent injuries. This revelation comes on the heels of the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by a white Ferguson, Mo., police officer.

About 9:25 p.m. July 14, deputies confronted Montgomery in Enterprise Park, in the 13000 block of Clovis Avenue, after smelling what they believed to be the odor of marijuana in the immediate area of the bench where he was sitting, according to sheriff’s Capt. Britta Steinbrenner. While he was in the process of being detained, Montgomery became “verbally confrontational and subsequently attempted to punch one of the deputies,” Steinbrenner said.

The Compton chapter of the NAACP says Barry Montgomery suffered a fractured eye socket, seven broken ribs and other injuries. They allege he was harassed and beaten by the deputies while handcuffed for 25 minutes.
