I've seen the still photo but it doesn't look like a molotov cocktail after it's been lit, this looks like someone throwing a smoke/gas grenade. molotovs don't spit that extra bit of spark the still shows.
im not completely convinced about the claim in the slightest


Well Obama seems to be completely convinced, that was his closing statement just now, "that people (imbeciles) should not be throwing Molotov Cocktails at Law Enforcement."

I believe it is on his page here:

Yes, I believe the reporter he is talking to is Marcus DiPaola (Xinhua/CNC). Timestamp is 8:24 where Marcus begins recounting what happened at the large protest that was gassed due to a "molotov". I did check Xinhua first thing this morning, they are carrying the "molotov thrown" story despite what DiPaola statements here, which is very interesting to me.

Well obama is a liar, you can find plenty of threads about it on this site

He is not in the position to be contradicting the police on a national stage, he has to toe the line of being impartial.
So just cause someone who was not there says it happened, does not mean it happened

Like I said before, I see that now. However in the 1st video it's clear a Molotov Cocktail was thrown at the Chop Suey restaurant. Watch Obama's speech he just gave, he mentioned them being thrown at the very end of it. I think his sources, and Vice media, backs up my position. ~$heopleNation

Gotcha. Not familiar with that site but am familiar with USA Today. The number that USA Today was reported by other entities including the Washington Post, iirc.

Oh so now Obama is a liar? How convenient for YOUR KIND guy, whatever that means? I stand for the truth, not some fake two party circus side show. You're a stooge among millions, you're being played. Good luck with that bro. ~$heopleNation

Ya it was a tongue in check remark, hence the lol emoji.
The same people that will call him a liar will take this remark as truth, so it is a two way street.
And I guess your "your kind" of people was a response to my typo, but i fixed it now.

Not a big deal. That it is, I agree. I think he lies when it benefits him, just like with most politicians. ~$heopleNation

There was the one that showed the protester throwing back tear gas canisters that said he was throwing bombs. Turned that off right away as it's not true. He is clearly throwing back the year gas and not a bomb.

What is the other video? I've been hearing lots of talk about Molotov cocktails but have yet to hear anything other than people were trying to light them but failed. The restaurant fire video?

What is upsetting is that images of protesters throwing back tear gas canisters are being spun into "he's throwing a Molotov cocktail." While I don't doubt there have been people trying to set them off, with a few actually working, they're not being used to the degree that the police are making out.

There are 2 groups of people in Ferguson, the protesters and the looters. They are different groups with the looters being a smaller faction probably from out of town. It's disgusting when people come in to situations like this to ignite a riot, steal and make the protesters look bad.

Has anyone found a source stating how may national guard personnel there will be deployed in Ferguson or their eta?

@#timcast there is this tweet:

The news keeps saying the protesters were going to overrun the command center Fire Base Johnson so a response with tear gas was necessary. Maybe they should deploy wire and foogas.

I get the impression officials see it as a war zone.

On the looting of the McDonald's that had employees locked in a storage closet, these pictures on twitter might explain what might have occurred there as they clearly show milk being poured on the eyes of teargas victims. The window was broken on the McDonald's. I wonder if the McDonald's had closed early to assure employees could get home before curfew began since clean up can take a while. If that's the case, panic and pain might've been the reason why what happened at the McDonald's happened. Hard to say but pictures of a protester getting milk poured into her eyes and then water outside of the establishment are interesting components to this looting.

CNN is reporting that Police are arresting people if they are congregate in groups and stay in one place. They can march but can not stay in one place

I haven't seen any numbers released, but it appears that the NG will not be involved with law enforcement duties. They are only there to protect the LE base of operations.

It was reported an older lady stopped to rest and a man who stopped with her was arrested. The police sure could use some lessons in PR and treating people like, well, people.

Here's a timeline of events:

Timeline: Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo.

If you get a chance you should read the threads, there's much more than what being reported in the MSM.

TBH there is a whooole lot that you would need to be caught up on.
www.abovetopsecret.com...
This thread, that is now closed would be a good start if you have time and don't mind doing some reading.
Will be links to live feeds, that again if you have time, will be able to watch and get a good idea of what has happened, well at least what happened over the weekend which is the bulk of the discussion and what lead to the NG getting called

Nobody is suggesting that Law Enforcement is completely innocent here, we were discussing whether Molotov Cocktails being thrown can be validly confirmed. ~$heopleNation
