I served in a media relations capacity for former St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley for many years. (Charlie was County Executive when Michael Brown attacked Officer Darren Wilson and died for his sins.)From the relationships I cultivated as a result of this work, I know for a fact that at the apex of the rioting - when the BLM terrorists were setting fire to various Ferguson buildings, smashing windows, scaring the crap out of ordinary area citizens (of ALL ethnicities) and generally running amok, President B. Obama called Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and County Exec Dooley and told them to “Let ‘em vent.” That’s why the Missouri National Guard stood down, and local police agencies were so passive during the orc offensive. Like good Dems, Nixon and Dooley toed the company line. Obama wanted to let his lads tear things up. And so they did.
