Skip to comments.Times Square Shut Down By Thousands Marching As Ferguson Protests Spin-Off Across The Country
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.

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.....
Geez! And the summer is almost over too! Well, that was close.
Not spontaneous - planned and coordinated
Well played Hussein...Well played.
Zer0 heading back the weekend, martial law time anyone?
If he'd had his hands up, he wouldn't have gotten shot. Too bad his momma didn't give him that advice.
You can tell a REAL geezer by the way they complain about how people on welfare have “color TV.”
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!”
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.

And WHEN exactly are we going to get the FACTS one whether this street thug, er I mean college-bound wunderkind Mike Brown actually ASSAULTED the cop who shot him?
James Rucker is on the board of directors of the Southern Poverty Law Center
“”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.
I don’t think this is Soro’s style. This is right up the Commie’s playbook. International A.N.S.W.E.R. would be much more the likely source of this type of action.
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?
I would participate in a rally against the militarization of local cops. I hope this does spread. But not be about Brown.
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.
See #120, this might have been a good shoot..
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.
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.
If this remains peaceful, why is everyone complaining?
A lot of FReepers have been predicting this backlash for years.
I just saw a movie like that.. I think one of the main character’s names was caesar..
Antimonious therapy could halt the lunacy..
You said it. Without those suburbs, the northeast would collapse worse than Detroit.
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.
Forgot about ANSWER. I bet they are involved to some extent.
Just like the left. Screaming before facts are known.
Heckuva job there, Bambi.
Hey DeBlasio: I hope this chases even MORE business away from your city.
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.
Look for even greater increases in gun sales.
The plan? Riots all across the USA, and then? Obama declares martial law.....no presidential election in 2016.Der Führer
is now on the march.
Obama is playing the US public like a cracked violin.
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.
...there have been protests planned across the country via Twitter
Community organizing just went national. People will get hurt, property will get damaged or stolen. Who cares about the little people? Not the Dem party? Those ghetto mongers are just cannon fodder for power.
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.
President Jarrett’s plan has now been put into effect.
I’m not Rome2000, but here is a link to the entire weird story:
“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.
If it continues, the massive BosWash will implode.
