Another police shooting in Ferguson
St. Louis Post Dispatch ^ | August 13, 2014

Posted on 08/13/2014 4:06:17 AM PDT by Second Amendment First

At about 1 a.m., a St. Louis County Police officer shot and critically wounded a man who police said pointed a handgun at the officer near the intersection of West Florissant and Chambers Road.

The shooting happened near Chambers and Sheffingdell Court close to the site of protests against police for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

Police said they received a call about four to five men in the area armed with shotguns and wearing ski masks and they got reports of shots fired in the area. Police officers arrived and saw "multiple subjects running," said police spokesman Officer Brian Schellman.

An officer approached one of the men and he pulled a handgun on the officer who then fired, Schellman said.

Police said they recovered the handgun at the scene. The man was taken to a hospital.

Those people there are now trying to provoke the police and think they run the streets.
If true then the idiot who pointed the gun got what he deserved.
Now will there be more excuses to act like animals and go out and riot, steal.

er because it states so on their uniform, and they declare themselves at the other cops, plus why on earth would they point the gun at the police anyway.

This idiot thought he could provoke the cops and got what he deserved.
That is if the facts put out here are true.

yea lets have the scumbags, druggies, drug dealers, looters take the neighborhood instead. They got what was coming to them after pointing a gun at a cop just like if you had a gun and they pointed a gun at you. Now more excuses to rob and riot while the sheeple in this country feel sorry for them and the thugs.

Not having a go , but I can’t imagine seeing a car and then finding the time to follow it for no reason.

“Reporting live from Occupied America...”

This is how it starts, I believe. The police may be well armed and well-versed in tactics, but they are greatly outnumbered. Pray for our nation.

The story will be it was a planted gun.

Sadly, these days many will believe it.

Were they “Russian speaking separatists”?
Is Putin taking advantage of Nobama’s “foreign policy” and sending his masked terrorists to “liberate” the US territories?

You're assuming the police are telling the truth here.

While I would not be surprised if the scumbag did point a gun at the cop (I know the area), I also would not be the least surprised if the cop planted the gun afterwards--I know the area.

not assuming anything but saying if a guy aimed a gun at a cop then he deserves to be shot just like if a guy aimed a gun at you..

If you read other threads from last night there were reports of armed thugs with faces covered with guns walking about and heading towards the cops.

That is a fact by the way.

please tell me you are kidding. I think the police are acting like oppressive overlords. I am completely disgusted. They should have identified the officer who shot Michael Brown immediately, They should not have brought out the riot gear, tear gas and dogs. They should deescalate, not escalate. Very disappointed in their conduct.

I totally understand--and I agree that it is more likely that the cops shot an armed thug.

I'm just saying that I would not be surprised if they had shot an unarmed person, then lied about it.

Both sides in that area are not trustworthy.

Let’s see, we degrade them via government policy into animals. Take away their fathers, who themselves knew no fathers. Leave them to new daddy’s like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson or a local religious leader who is more like a criminal boss http://www.chicagocrusader.com/chicago/News-Detail.aspx?typeID=1&newsID=6647&CityID=1.

They’re taught to hate whitey via a government school system we pay for and allow to exist, hate the police and see the world as against them because of their skin color, something they cannot control. Now, on this pile of tinder and kerosene toss a match. I’m not endorsing their behavior or cop killing, but conservatives, especially Christians, better come up with real solutions that are politically actionable or these, our fellow children of God and fellow Americans will constitute another lost generation via liberalism.

It’s disgusting and we need to help.

More right than you know. I live in deep south, born and bred. Every community has a Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard (pride thing.)

Austerity measures, when they finally are put in place across America, will not end well for anyone.

We are on a fast track to becoming Greece.

When some expect or feel entitled to things and they are snatched away, some babies whine and cry. Other babies reach for some other babies stuff and just take it.

Makers and takers.

I've been helping (footing the bill) for 40 years. I am all out of give a shits...

They want to roam like animals, let their kids become feral because they are too busy selling drugs, breeding the next baby daddy, scamming the system and bitching about how little they get from Uncle Sugar let them.

But bring their attitudes and thoughts about looting to my "hood" homie gonna need some Bactine and Bandaids.

There is no hope for most of them, it's a culture THEY created and are damned sure not going to change it. Not as long as Uncle Sugar is there handing them monthly checks. Those that want out find a way out. The rest are content right where they are. Oh sure most of them will bitch about it but they put ZERO effort in fixing it or getting out.

Agreed. Most of the “help them” handwringing is done by people who haven’t lived in the middle of it their whole life or been a victim yet. Lenin said it, give me four years with the yutes and they will never be turned back or something to that effect.

I had not heard that released as the official story by the authorities. I had heard vague reports of "the perp was going for his gun" suggested by the media without source but I had not heard this released as the official position. Rather, I keep hearing it is under investigation.
