  • 'I'm Lost Now': Can Ferguson's Businesses Ever Rise From Rubble?

    NBC News ^ | 11/28/2014 | BILL BRIGGS
    It will be a quiet Black Friday on Ferguson's West Florissant Avenue. The modest commercial strip that runs through the heart of the embattled city has been devastated by rioting and looting. Now, a haze of doubt hangs over many workers and merchants there who wonder whether their businesses can survive the terrible toll — and the fear of possible uprisings to come. Some retailers, like Mohamad Yaacoub, have been slammed twice by violence. His store, Sam's Meat Market, was looted in August after unarmed, 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. On Monday night,...
  • California Dem: ‘Is a Police Officer Supposed to Be the Jury and the Executioner?’

    PJ Media ^ | November 28, 2014 | Bridgett Johnson
    A California Democrat said a lesson in the wake of the Michael Brown shooting is a need to look at police acting as “jury and executioner” when confronting suspects. Rep. Karen Bass, a House Judiciary Committee member, said in a statement after the grand jury opted to not issue an indictment this week that it “continues a trend of injustice that has rightfully created an environment of anger and concern in Ferguson, Missouri and across the United States.” “Ferguson officials botched this case from the beginning when they left Michael Brown’s body on the street for over four hours after...

    [SNIP] Wilson also testified that even after being shot and wounded several times, Brown continued to “charge” at him, with an intent to kill. “When he stopped, he turned, looked at me, made like a grunting noise and had the most intense, aggressive face I’ve ever seen on a person. When he looked at me, he then did like the hop … you know, like people do to start running,” Wilson testified. It’s hard to fathom what is more absurd, the idea that a multiple gunshot wound victim would keep coming for more, or that a grand jury would believe...

    St. Louis County police said they are searching for an AR-15 rifle swiped from one of the two St. Louis County police cars set ablaze during Monday night's violence. Sgt. Brian Schellman said rioters who torched a county police car about 10 p.m. in the 400 block of South Florissant Road yanked out the high-powered police rifle and the rack in which it was stored. At least one other county police car was set on fire Monday night.

    On Monday night, after the release of the grand jury verdict rejecting indictment of Officer Darren Wilson in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of 18-year-old black man Michael Brown, President Obama took to the microphones. “We need to recognize that this is not just an issue for Ferguson, this is an issue for America,” he said. “[T]here are still problems and communities of color aren't just making these problems up.” Obama was wrong, at least in the case of Darren Wilson. In viewing thousands of pages of FBI interviews and grand jury testimony, it becomes eminently clear that many members of...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Missouri, police officer who killed unarmed teen Michael Brown in August, setting off months of protests, will likely never be a law enforcement officer again, his lawyer said in an interview with NBC station KSDK. "Realistically speaking, Darren will never be a police officer again, and he understands that," attorney Jim Towey said. "Going forward it will be school, and trying to carve out a new niche, new career, for he and his family." There were violent protests this week in the St. Louis suburb after a grand jury declined to indict Wilson in Brown's death...

    Ferguson isn’t simply black versus white. A peculiar Vine floated around social media Monday evening following the grand jury announcement in Ferguson, Mo. The short video shows an Asian-American shopkeeper standing in his looted store, with a hands-in-his-pockets matter-of-factness and a sad slump to his facial expression. “Are you okay, sir?” an off-screen cameraman asks. “Yes,” the storeowner says, dejectedly. The clip is only a few seconds, but it highlights the question of where Asian-Americans stand in the black and white palette often used to paint incidents like Ferguson. In the story of a white cop’s killing of a black...

    There are conflicting reports on what happened between Police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of Michael Brown. One group of eyewitnesses claim that Michael Brown 'charged' Officer Wilson, leaving him no choice but to defend himself. Another group claim that Michael Brown raised his hands to surrender. Then there is the report by Police Officer Darren Wilson of the incident. If it can be shown that one group or the other is LYING, it might stop the violence. It might also bring peace to this country. RICO could be invoked as a reason to administer the LIE DETECTOR test....

    The violent protests in Ferguson, Mo., are part of the American experience. Peaceful protesting is a luxury only available to those safely in mainstream culture.

    When Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson left the scene of the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, the officer returned to the police station unescorted, washed blood off his hands and placed his recently fired pistol into an evidence bag himself. Those actions, described in grand jury testimony, violated protocols for handling a crime scene and securing evidence, according to experts in policing procedures and Justice Department documents. Wilson’s movements after the shooting were among a number of police actions in the aftermath of Brown’s death that experts said were unusual.

    A St. Louis County grand jury on Monday decided not to indict Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson in the August killing of teenager Michael Brown. The decision wasn’t a surprise — leaks from the grand jury had led most observers to conclude an indictment was unlikely — but it was unusual. Grand juries nearly always decide to indict. Or at least, they nearly always do so in cases that don’t involve police officers. Former New York state Chief Judge Sol Wachtler famously remarked that a prosecutor could persuade a grand jury to “indict a ham sandwich.” The data suggests...

    Via Mediaite, a lot of left-leaning lawyers on Twitter made this point last night during McCulloch’s press conference. Grand jury hearings typically don’t involve testimony from the defendant; the D.A. runs the whole show in deciding who’ll testify, which evidence to let the grand jury see, and which charges to seek. That’s where the old saying that you can get a GJ to indict a ham sandwich comes from — because only the prosecution speaks, it’s exceedingly easy for the state to convince the grand jurors that a crime was committed. Instead McCulloch conducted the hearing seemingly impartially, as...

    The “security team” was back out standing guard at the plaza last night. About 20 men with handguns stood guard at the Greystone Plaza last night. The St.Louis Post-Dispatch reported: Along West Florissant just north of 270, in Greystone Plaza, about 20 men with handguns and AR-15 rifles stood around the perimeter of the parking lot, guarding the dozen or so stores. They estimated that 100 cars had come by throughout the night, seemingly to check the place out, but turned away. Mike Cross, the owner of St. Louis Ink at the plaza, said: “There’s nothing in this strip mall...

    Despite calling for peaceful protests even in the event of a St. Louis County grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old’s step-father was caught on video provoking violence. “Burn this bitch down!” Brown’s step-father, Louis Head, yelled into a raucous crowd in front of Ferguson police headquarters Monday night as St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced the grand jury’s decision not to indict. Head was with Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden who was being restrained by a friend and yelled “they think this is a f*cking joke!”...

    When history remembers the Obama administration, the flames of Ferguson will light up our memories. It wasn’t just an AutoZone and Jade Nails burning up in the fires of Ferguson, it was also the “Hope” of 2008 going up in smoke. Instead of hope, the age of Obama has been characterized by racial division and discord. Obama and Holder commanded the police to behave themselves. The police behaved, and look what happened. Last week, members of the New Black Panther Party were arrested by state officials for plotting to use pipe bombs against the St. Louis Gateway Arch and for...

    It should properly be called “Affirmative Action Looting.” Having lectured the world for decades that American blacks should not be expected to obey the law or conform to the standards of behavior applicable to others, that black crime is a protest against social injustices, that blacks cannot succeed because of white skin privilege and never mind that there is a black president, the liberal establishment might as well be torching they buildings and cars in Missouri all by itself. The liberals have “Tawana Brawleyed” themselves into oblivion. They seriously believed that a grand jury could be bullied into indicting an...
