I heard the same thing as well. I also heard someone from the crowd yelling set up a road block.


Good. I wasn't sure I heard it correctly. Can you toss me the link you have. I just lost mine and it didn't register in my history?! I would really appreciate it.

Thanks for the link. The one I had streaming went down. Not sure why.

And again...someone threw something from the crowd towards the police.

Idiots.

Two journalists who were arrested have been released. Wesley Lowery and Ryan J. Reilly were apparently arrested for trespassing in McDonald's, which was open for business. Not sure how that works. Apparently the chief of police was made aware of this and replied "Oh God". Wesley Lowery has since been tweeting rather prolifically about it.



'Nuff said!

Police throwing gas canisters and flash bangs into the crowd. Firing into the crowd with rubber bullets.

Paramilitary Police Are Changing Law Enforcement in the Suburbs
SWAT teams, riot gear, armored vehicles, and other super-sized police equipment and tactics are spreading into smaller spaces and conflicts.

Of the many tragic images to emerge from Ferguson, Missouri, over the weekend, one of the most disturbing—and increasingly common—was the sight of a military vehicle patrolling suburban streets. Protesters outraged by the police killing of 18-year-old Ferguson resident Michael Brown were met by police in riot gear, police carrying assault rifles, and police aboard a LENCO BearCat, a type of military armored vehicle.


While the use of SWAT teams generally came to prominence in the 1970s as an answer to urban unrest (and as a form of police brutality), increasingly, the paramilitary tactics and equipment adopted by law-enforcement agencies are spreading beyond the cities to suburban areas and rural counties.



A 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Justice tracks the militarization of police back to the 1920s, when law-enforcement agencies adopted a more regimented martial style. With the explosion of SWAT deployments since 1980, though, the DOJ frets that the "growing militarization of U.S. policing may be threatening community policing." It is only in more recent years, though, that police militarization has become so widespread.


You have to ask yourself, how did we get here? A full scale military unit designed not to "serve and protect" but to "assault and batter" - or kill. The liberals saw this as an assault on the civil rights movement, police brutality designed to keep the blacks in their place, in the ghetto. That was indeed where these paramilitary police units first appeared. It's only now, that it has grown to cover city, suburbs, and rural areas alike that we see a conservative backlash.

All I can say is good luck putting this genie back in the bottle.

Is that gunfire??? It sounds like gunfire??

Never mind.... Rubber bullets. Crap! My nerves are shot just listening to this. It's something you think just happens in other countries. Just wow.

Reporters say they are firing rubber bullets into homes?

Oh crud. This livestream filmed with the night vision is intense.
The cops just let of flash bangs, the LRad annoying sound, rubber bullets, and tear gas -- straight into neighborhoods.

We are all in deep trouble. It may not be my state or town today---but it can't be far off in the future.

Because the camera men said they saw who threw it, and they didn't say it was a police officer.

Also, because not everything is a conspiracy.

There is a time and place for a PEACEFUL protest....in the middle of the street at night is not the time or the place.

They are actively firing on civilians, media, and reporters at this time.

Young people being angry were bad enough... watching the night vision link... older people are getting upset.

I don't think this is going to end soon or well.

There are so often agent factions that infiltrate demonstrations and "start something"...it is a well documented fact. This whole thing is starting to look more and more like an event that is being "managed" and trying to go in a certain direction no matter what. Why would a peaceful demonstration want things to turn bad for them...could it be someone or some bunch of some ones want that. Looting of businesses is wrong but still doesn't justify tanks and such. Water cannons or some such but tanks, snipers, microwave? Do not any of those businesses have insurance. Have business owners been killed. This all just feels above and beyond and something is definitely going "beyond the pale"...something more then what it may all seem to be.

And people that keep calling these guys with all that overkill police or cops...No, they are MILITARY.

A protester says that they can not get back home because it is blocked off but they are being fired on anyway. Where else are they supposed to go if they have their way home blocked off?

I think this is a very historical event unfolding, there can be no more talk about bringing "Democracy" to other nations while this is happening in America's Backyard.

Every livestream i hit up seems to go dead when the police get close.

Are they using jamming tech to stop people from gathering evidence?
