It seems that a lot more people are getting really tired of the way some LEO's are taking care of business. An "allegedly" unarmed teen was such a
danger that he had to be shot "several" times?? Witnesses told reporters that the teen was unarmed and was gunned down anyway. While I'm sure that
"hundreds" of people didn't actually witness the event... there were witnesses which tells us that there were more than one on the scene.
The grandmother saw the teen dead in the middle of the street herself when she ran outside to see what the commotion was about. And I am not normally
a huge fan of the NAACP, but they do seem to get some answers on occasion. They have come on to the scene and are asking for a thorough investigation
to be done by the FBI.
I hope they get the answers they are searching for.
But is this reaction by the people starting to grow? Are more and more people seeing the corruption for what it is getting fed up enough to stand up
when they see an injustice? This huge crowd could have easily overtaken the police that were on the scene at the beginning and I am assuming that they
knew that. They knew/felt it so much that they called in about 60 officers from 15 different departments to come on scene.
There are so many reports almost daily of the corrupt, illegal, murderous things some LEO's are partaking in that it has to be somewhat common
knowledge at this point. I just saw this headline and wondered if the people are indeed starting to wake up to it. Even if everything in this case was
done by the book, I am left with the same question and that's mainly why I posted it.
Are people just getting fed up? It seems these people were. Now whether it was called for in this case or not remains to be seen I suppose. I think
one of these days a situation like this is going to be a spark that sets off something that probably won't be too pretty simply because there have
been too many cases of "bad cop" lately.
FERGUSON, Mo. (TheBlaze/AP) — A large crowd yelled “kill the police” while confronting a group of officers after one fatally shot a teenage
male at a St. Louis-area apartment complex on Saturday.
The teen allegedly was unarmed and shot several times by the officer, reported KSDK-TV in St. Louis, citing witnesses. The shooting occurred around
noon at the Canfield Green apartments, KSDK added.
A St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman reported that ”a couple hundred people” exited nearby apartment buildings after the shooting,
but he didn’t say what prompted the shooting by the Ferguson officer.
Officers from 15 other departments arrived at the scene after a second burst of gunfire rang out, KSDK noted; Schellman said about 60 officers came to
the Ferguson neighborhood, which is a few miles north of downtown St. Louis.
Minutes after an uproar from bystanders around 2 p.m., KSDK reported that five gunshots were heard.
There were no reports of additional injuries at the scene, Schellman said, adding that the crowd was under control by 5 p.m.
