Times Square Shut Down By Thousands Marching As Ferguson Protests Spin-Off Across The Country
Daily Mail ^ | 14 August 2014 | By Josh Gardner For Mailonline and Louise Boyle For Mailonline

Posted on 08/14/2014 7:34:00 PM PDT by CorporateStepsister

The fifth night of demonstrations in support of gunned down Ferguson, Missouri teen Michael Brown saw scores of protesters marching through the streets of New York in a vigil that culminated in Times Square Thursday night.

Tensions flared as some protestors attempted to shove their way through a police barricade set up in their path toward the beating heart of the city.

Police held their own and tempers soon calmed, but as night gripped New York, the already congested Times Square ground to a halt as thousands flowed into the streets to demand an end to police brutality and militarization and justice for 18-year-old Brown.

All manufactured.

Let’s see. Last time around black voters were depressed about the Zero economy and them being the biggest losers.

ZIMMERMAN! WHITE GUY SHOOTS ST. TRAYVON!

This is how they fire up the base. Every week there’s some killing they could pick. This one fit the bill.

Chirp, chirp, chirp. All I hear are crickets chirping. No words or cries for justice from these protestors, rioters and opportunists over unarmed blacks being murdered almost daily just north of Ferguson in Chicago...by other blacks. This is all ginned up as a racial issue, when in fact it is a violence in the black community and the country as a whole issue.

Until the facts are determined in the shooting of this young black man in Ferguson, law-abiding people will wait for due process under the law to take place for justice to be carried out in the courts. Others think that rioting, burning, looting and more violence are the answers to finding justice. They are NOT THE ANSWERS. They are the CAUSE of what happened. Until this country starts talking about that problem, none of this will ever change, especially as long as we have the Obamas, Eric Holders, Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons and other race baiters of the world trying to stir up every incident and issue as racially motivated. They are their own worst enemies.

The answer is - we’ll find out, won’t we?

Hopefully, not. But that isn’t up to you or me.

I understand there’s a lot of animosity between blacks and Latinos.

I wonder how that’s going to play into it.....

If he'd had his hands up, he wouldn't have gotten shot. Too bad his momma didn't give him that advice.

Ask a DemoRat: “Has ANYTHING gotten better since Obama was elected???” Iraq? Illegal immigration? Israel? Unemployment? Libya? Korea? Race relations? Russia? Obamacare? The Deficit?
What can they say except “Hmmm... uhhh... well you can get stoned in Seattle without getting arrested, and Adam and Steve can get married!”

“...the media will inadvertently enable others to coordinate rioting and also be encouraged.”

Oh, I pretty sure the media will know exactly what they're doing. The msm is loathe to let a good crisis go to waste, just like Rahm and the girls and boys in the Dem party.

They didn’t get what they wanted squeezing blood from Trayvon Martin’s event, so they are doubling down on this guy to make America the most racist nation on the Earth. International A.N.S.W.E.R. is most likely behind it all.

“”While I in no way can justify the rioting and looting and there’s plenty of conflicting reports of what happened in that shooting, they do have the point about police militarization.””

_______________________________________________________

See post 31 and the accompanied Mike Brown crime scene video at the thread link. Ignore the audio and focus on the first half of the video.

This very well could have been a legitimate shoot.

I’m sure the Times Sq. protest is grassroots.. Impromptu.. No big organizer of this event, no no no.. /s Just like the night OBL was killed and all those young kids with American flags celebrated in Times Sq.. Like they give a chit about OBL or what happens in Missouri. Both of these events are staged by Dem organizers with upcoming elections in mind.

Hey if they are rioting against the militarization of the police that may not be such a bad idea.

* * *

I’m torn about this whole protest/rioting thing. I for one am up to HERE with the militarization of the cops. (We’ve certainly been talking a lot about “jackbooted thugs” here on FR the last two or three years, and it may well be that this Michael Brown thing is yet another example of that — though we really don’t know yet.) OTOH this rioting and stealing TVs etc. is simply a big excuse for a party — a thug-infested party — and does no one any good.

I’d like to see a Conservative-led movement against excessive police militarization, but I don’t know what that would look like, or maybe if there’s an organization that’s already working on it. Thoughts, anyone?

This may well lead to martial law that Obama wants. And he’ll say it will be too dangerous to hold elections. Then the question becomes “Will law abiding citizens start protesting?”

As for the cops, Obama has his 200,000 man army.

But agree about the militarization of the police. That BS needs to end ASAP.

I’ve not been directing my full attention to this Ferguson incident but has the ethnicity of this police officer been revealed?

Is he white? If not and if he’s black, then what?

It’s probably a safe bet, if the cop was black, male or female, they would have broadcasted that to all points.

Looks familiar. I used to go to the beach there in the summer.

Would park in the paradise cove parking lot and walk maybe 1/2 mile up the beach. In the early 70's

About another 1/2 mile up, and one had to cut through one of the empty lots from the highway to get to the water.

I can see why BS would gravitate there.

Heck, if she was ever in the water, some one prolly would mistake her for one of the whales that people look for from the cliff at point dume.

Back in the late 90’s IIRC their was a incident in CT where a cop shot a black teenage boy for riding or driving in a stolen car early in the morning. He had a fake gun on him, the cop saw it ordered it dropped and him to put his hands up. He didn’t. He was shot and later died.

Of course the mother and relatives insisted it was police brutality. Turns out it wasn’t and he learned the hard way pointing fake gun at a cop at night is a bad idea. Didn’t change the community’s mind, they still hated and distrusted the police.

Until the leaders in the black community stand up and say, “too bad, the evidence shows the police did their job correctly, you committed a crime, you nave have to deal with the consequences.” nothing will change.

"Police Forces being trained to ignore Black Crime"

The unstated message is next time shoot the white kid. None of this would happen if the cops had only followed the PC guidance. Holder's Just Us department would never even look at it if it was a black on white shooting.

I think the Democrat Party needs to take this issue over to emotionalize its base voters before November and I suspect that’s what they are doing through their operatives at this point.

The political operators are trying to get people riled up to vote D.

More violence would cause a backlash in November against the Democrats.

Each time these blacks spread out and attack more police, then the Republicans will be voted in en-masse and then Obama will be neutralized with the full backing of the majority of the country.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Unless Obama exploits every racial crisis so he can declare martial law ( the Insurrection Act) and cancel the 2016 election.Its all planned my FRiend. Watch it and weep.Obama has no intention of relinquishing his power.

I think the Obama operatives have thought of that and they are not going allow a defeat at the ballot box. Millions of illegal aliens are going to vote and states are going to be prevented from checking IDs and determining legal status to vote.

If Obama can’t stuff the ballot boxes, then he will cancel the election by declaring martial law ( Insurrection Act)and cancelling the election because “minorities “are prevented from voting due to violence, or some such excuse. The UN elections commission will assist Obama in this.

“Without those suburbs, the northeast would collapse worse than Detroit.”

Unfortunately, the suburbs themselves are being ruined by job losses coupled with high taxes. Here in NJ, Trenton has run out of money to re-distribute to the cities, and everything is deteriorating. When Newark NJ laid off 160+ cops a few years ago at a time of record shootings, the writing was on the wall: There was no state aid left to save those jobs.

Depressing to watch; “For Sale” signs in front of many homes, and many businesses shuttered up.
