So they come to a protest with a machine gun on a tripod? Disgusting!
It's not a machinegun. From the looks it could be a SASS M110. It's a sniper platform.
I'd be setting up on the roof. I'm willing to bet I'm a better shot too.
Phew, for a second there, I thought it was something fundamentally wrong going on in that picture. But its all just A-OK since it's not a machine gun. *rolls eyes*
I like accuracy. I prefer stating what is. It does make a difference because it says a lot about the intent of the police. Knowing the weapon systems they are employing tells you everything you need to know about what they are willing to do.
Another witness to the shooting of Michael Brown, Jr. spoke to News 4 Wednesday.
Tiffany Mitchell, 27, said she did not see what led up to the shooting, but said she arrived right before the fatal shots were fired.
“As I was coming around, I heard the tires squeaking on the truck, and as I get closer, I see them tussling through the window. The kid was pulling off and the cop was pulling in,” Mitchell said.
Mitchell told News 4 she saw a door close on a police car. An officer was inside and Brown, Jr. was on the outside. She said the two were arm wrestling through the car window. Mitchell said she then tried to pull out her phone to record. Shots then rang out.
“It just didn’t look right for them to be arm wrestling,” Mitchell said. “The first gun shot came from the window, so I just started getting out of the way.”
According to Mitchell, Brown, Jr, began to run away after the first shot was fired.
“After the shot, the kid just breaks away. The cop follows him, kept shooting, the kid’s body jerked as if he was hit. After his body jerked he turns around, puts his hands up, and the cop continues to walk up on him and continues to shoot until he goes all the way down,” Mitchell said.

Standing with my brothers. At least until they open fire then I would be running screaming like a girl or lying in a pool of my own blood and piss.
Redflagnews.com and Americasfreedomfighters.com took what I said completely out of context. The purpose of the Missouri Citizens Militia is to protect the people of Missouri and the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic. They took my words as if we were going to be colliding with the Police head on. If your looting and breaking into and destroying other people's property, doing drive by shootings, etc, you become a threat in our eyes. Destroying the place you live and other people's well being is not the way of a peaceful protest or a peaceful assembly under the first amendment of the Constitution. I would like to make a personal apology to every active MCM Member. You have to be the change you want to see in the world. The destruction of your communities is not change that we welcome.
I wonder if the constitution loving militia crowd will arrive on scene.
Seems like just as good a reason as anything else.
Provide armed support for the protesters to ensure the cops don't start abusing them

Apparently, the militia in Mo has been paying attention.
With Ferguson, Missouri practically under martial law, the Missouri Citizen’s Militia is NOW IN Ferguson to protect innocent Americans from the ‘tyrannical police state’ according to the linked facebook post from Aaron Penberthy. Missouri’s Militia was recently at Bundy Ranch.
Aaron Penberthy If peaceful protesters get fired upon, it is my duty to uphold the constitution Clay Martin. If innocent families are being attacked, I have no choice but as a human being to go defend.
