Are they called Revolution Club Chicago? Been trying to verify that and any connection between them and the NBPP.

I don't doubt it. There are people that "profit" from going in to hot areas and helping to create unrest. I've seen this first hand, but we were able to squash it quickly in my area.


Again: agent provocateurs. Smash 'em when you see 'em.

Yeah, there have been articles about a revolutionary group from Chicago coming in to try to spark violent revolution. I did a little research about them and posted it here:

ATS post on RCP

At least some of them are by many accounts a very hardcore wanting violent revolution. They are not the local protesters, and the local protesters don't want them there. Some of the local protesters said the revolutionaries from Chicago were the ones with the molotov cocktails Wednesday night.

Fox news just said again while I was typing this that some of the people there after curfew tonight told people they were ready to die tonight. Then Fox said that there were reports these people opened fire on the police after that. They don't seem to know more than that either yet.



That's really crucial to know. How many people will take the time to read that?! How many will want to believe the platitudes?!

This doesn't begin to get into is the appropriate for children. That's their future. That's what we are giving our kids by not stepping up correctly.

Yes we do.

But THAT will take some doing and some deep soul searching by many.

Hopefully some people learned a few things tonight and this week and next week.

Ferguson is far from "over with".

I wish someone would shut the media clowns up.
They're either lying or completely ignorant.


In in all honesty though, I think big media corporations only hire people with an IQ equal to room temperature.



Here's a collection of journalists who are disagreeing with it being smoke:

Alex Altman from Time magazine:

Highly skeptical of police insistence that wasn't tear gas. It burns and i wasn't even hit. #Ferguson

twitter.com...

Ryan Reilly from Huffington Post:

We're now told that tear gas was used at the end. What a mess. #ferguson vine.co...

twitter.com...

So The Blaze, Vice, Huffington Post and now Time magazine and CNN is now backpedaling and report "smoke then tear gas was used".

Indeed.

We had a few come to the first night of Occupy protests in Iowa. We quickly caught on to what they were trying to do and they were forcibly removed by the people. The police just stood and laughed while they were given the boot.

Personally? I just want to know what happened.

Very specific assurances and promises were made after Wednesday night. Assurances of the State Police interceding to take control of security for instance. Statements about not using tear gas again, for another.

This community has very good reason to be pissed enough to spit nails, and I hadn't realized how warped this was until a short time ago in reading an article with basic background stuff. Simple facts, not something fuzzy.


State Senator Jamilah Nasheed told CNN that Chief Jackson must step down after inciting the violence of Friday night. Nasheed also connected Chief Jackson to St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch, who said Nixon replacing Chief Belmar in command was a “disgrace.” Amazingly, McCulloch said this even when the world was celebrating a night of peace on the streets in Ferguson.

The prosecutor responsible for prosecuting the man who shot Michael Brown dead appears to be complicit in attempt to undermine community policing in Ferguson. McCulloch should be removed from the case, as Nasheed and County Executive Charlie Dooley have requested, and replaced with a special prosecutor.

The article itself is used on another thread and highlighting a very different aspect of this case covered in the first part of it. It's that last part I almost stopped dead in my reading with a serious brain freeze from.

Do these folks even understand the spirit of the term 'Conflict Of Interest'? Has it ever occurred to them, even if NO conflict of interest exists...the appearance is SO bad that a reasonable person may not believe it at this point?

Whatever those 40 FBI agents are doing, who Cap't Johnson referred to earlier? Do it quicker....."Mississippi Burning" was the story of another town torn by civil and cultural strife. A movie made about it came out pretty well too ....

Well, it's Missouri this time, it's worse, and we could use a little of that Federal wizardry for speedy analysis.

I hope there are marches, I'll attend. I hope there are flash mobs. Someone will tell me. I usually bring my kids to volunteering, this is definitely a stay with family while I do this destination.

What happened to the press conference? Supposed to have been in 20 minutes?

Also CNN is confirming from a police MHP lieutenant that it was both smoke and tear gas that was used. So, police confirm.

Police presser in 5 min.

And that's the solidarity we need. Honestly, if those of us "in the know" put the pressure on, we could reimagine the world. That may be naive thinking, but the alternative is the crap that TPTB are pulling tonight or the rest of the population that just doesn't flat-out pay attention.

I don't think that case matters like people want it to. Its not irrelevant, its just not the big picture.

Groups that advocate and assist in civil unrest come from many different beliefs or ideologies.

Please don't bring up the communist crap.

They LIED.


"What we're doing now is not who we are," Johnson said amid shouts from community members during the press conference.

Johnson noted there would be no trucks or tear gas used to enforce the curfew. He acknowledged that tear gas had been used against protesters early Saturday morning, but said he did not order officers to take that action.



TRUCKS AND SNIPERS



TEAR GAS



All night long I sat here and listened to CNN go on and on about how police had kept their word and not been heavy handed. I trust they are preparing a full retraction and will point out the lies with equal fervor.

So disgusted right now. You can't believe anything coming out of any authority in that state.

Ah the beauty of MSM changes in the stories.

Always about a major issue and always after the damage is done.

enough people already think it was just smoke (but no mirrors)

One thing needing asking is the "and/or other actions"
How can that be legal? It's like small print but no small print to read.
