Fear just happens to be a tool being used over the decades. And is being used by the police force, and so many other elements in our life.
And now that fear is being made manifest, and coming to bite them in the arse.

There is a mix of emotions fear, anger, and horrible Training, I will agree with that point you made for sure.
All these are paths to the Dark Side of the force!

But this officer in no way was showing any sense of honor, or duty.
He was warned by his commander before going out. Be mindful the world is watching. He ignored that fact, and still made a jerk of himself, and lost his job over it.

Sad too, as he should have been thinking of his family, if he has one. Or the people who depend on him.
These officers are suppose to be trained professionals. Human nature, overrides logic sometimes.

Ladies and gentlemen...

Enough of the personal back and forth attacks.

Discuss the issue, not each other.

Same guy?

Welcome to Merica. I had to lol on that one.
Thanks Dragon! Also thanks for your input and sharing your thoughts on the matter.
Seems this went BAM! Late last night and went public very fast through the Tubes of the internet.
We the people HAVE the power!
It really shows and makes me proud that I get slightly misty eyed.

This is not over, not by a long shot. From where I can see it this is just the start to the exposure to these Suit and tie Thugs and criminals!

St. Ann officer suspended for pointing an assault rifle at a Ferguson protester

FERGUSON, MO – A police officer from St. Ann, Missouri, has been relieved of duty and suspended indefinitely after pointing an assault rifle at a protester, in Ferguson, the St. Louis County Police Department said in a statement. “On Tuesday, August 19, 2014, shortly before midnight, an incident occurred wherein a St. Ann Police Officer pointed a semi-automatic assault rifle at a peaceful protestor after a verbal exchange. It was at this time a St. Louis County Police Sergeant walked over and immediately took action, forcing the officer to lower the weapon, and escorting him away from the area,” the statement read. St. Ann, like Ferguson, is a suburb of St. Louis.


Not sure if its the same cop, but its a start

Here's a photo of a Revolutionary Communist Party member (white guy) inciting blacks to toss molotov cocktails.

Here's Antonio French's twitter post about it.
Did you know that these bottles of harmless water have also been reported as being filled with urine? How would you like having urine thrown at yourself?

Thanks for posting that! Antonio French is a trusted source on twitter, I follow him too, but have not had a chance to get on twitter in the last few hours. So much is happening so fast, it is hard to keep up. Is why I asked other members to help with that "quest" as I call it

I will go there and use that as a source, to inform my followers of this truth.

As per your water bottle stuff.. Indeed, I would not care for that one bit, and do not condone the actions of those few. Nor do I think the officers should have to have ANYTHING at all tossed at them. I agree totally.

Thanks for the source and fact post here. It is much appreciated as the side foot note as I asked in OP.
Good work.
edit on 23114102485 by zysin5 because: Edit1

There is also this to put into account here as well. But in context.. this photo has nothing to do with the officer who said this.
Just more documented proof, why the cops have to take such a stance. NOT that I agree with their actions.. but just sharing the fact sources.

There are 2 sides to every story.

That communists name is Greg "Joey" Johnson from Chicago. He's the one that made burning the U.S. flag OK for some to do.

According to a website called the Missouri Torch, the man French is referring to is one Greg "Joey" Johnson, of Chicago. They have a variety of other images and videos of Johnson and assorted "commie" — their word — friends being shown around Ferguson. It's pretty plain they've identified him correctly. Johnson has been kicking around the paranoid end of American politics for some time. (To be utterly clear to any conservatives getting excited just reading this, that paranoid end is a 360 degree circle, really, comprising members of all stripes of political thought.) But he hasn't been wholly ineffective, as an activist. For one example: those of you who went to law school, might recognize him as the same Gregory Johnson who was the defendant in Texas v. Johnson, the case which held that flag-burning is a protected activity under the First Amendment. The group with which Johnson is affiliated, the Revolutionary Communist Party, is nowadays largely regarded as crank-ish even by many self-identified Communists. It is routinely referred to as a "cult of personality" for its leader Bob Avakian. Avakian, who lives in self-imposed exile... somewhere, still believes that Communist revolution is possible and writes long tracts to that end, identifying the end of racial oppression as key to the eventual overthrow of capitalism.

That extra paint on the cop car was done by the RCP. You can see revolution is written on the hood. The Van Jones bottom up/top down strategy is in play. It's going to intensify.

Here is a link showing the communist Greg "Joey" Johnson in Sanford, FL during the Trayvon Martin case. He lies during his ranting and says that he's from Oakland, CA. He is working to overthrow the U.S. government by way of civil unrest. And what better way to do this than to widen the divide between the races. That's what they're up to.

I turned on CNN for some chuckles. But seems they are showing the video on MSM.
And he is getting suspended. I think that is more non sense.
He should lose his job!

Ive said it before, and I will say it again.. I've been fired from jobs, for things 1000 times less than making a damn death threat! WTH! I mean gezz us.. Starting to get upset here.. Taking my puppy on a walk, get some fresh air.
Edit--- okay it seems the officer go F urself has been suspended permanently. LOL the MSM media just could not say, he got fired.
Just like our troops on the ground, they call them “Diplomats”. I just LOL at the MSM these days.. what a joke.
But at least they put this officer on a leash and Fired him! I don't mind saying what it is.

Police spokesman spews nonsense about isolated case of a couple of tired cops. Seems he missed the weapon pointing that has happened every day. He seemed to equate yelling at cops equal to threatening with a firearm.

And they wonder why so many do not believe much of what they say.

posted on Aug, 20 2014 @ 07:23 PM
MSM reports the officer has been suspended permanently. A fancy way to say he got canned.
At the very least this is one step to justice. They did the right thing.

And for the record. Even as much as I get upset. Why do I feel bad for the officers family? NOT the officer.
I should not feel bad in the least bit but in the end I do.

I will just leave it at that. I am not making excuses for him, or his actions. I was the one who made the thread and helped push this video on my end..

I am sure they will take care of his family and find a better suited job for him.
Damn me and empathy. It works like a double bladed Axe.
I care about families, I care about justice, I want to stand for what is right, but Right and wrong at times can be a point of view.

Very star Wars for my nerd friends out here, here we go dorks!
As a "Jedi" I must share my empathy for the mans family. Just not him personally. I get so torn at times, I must check myself, before I get lost in anger and fear. I have to feel for the other side, less I lose that thing that makes me who I am.
It can't just be all one sided. BUT.. These cops have a heavy hand, and are geared up like military, pointing guns in peoples face, Just like a troop of STORM Troopers!
Because they are gripped by fear. WE now see where fear leads us.
Mixed with a slurry of other emotions.
Take a moment to let that sink in before you think I am on their side.. I'm not, make no mistake.

Because you still have some bit of compassion in you as well as some basic humanity and good will. If you're religious, I believe they would call it Grace and/or Forgiveness. Whatever you call it and even though it does cut both ways, it's a good thing and I'm glad you have it. I wish I could say the same for everyone else as it seems to be lacking in a lot of people nowadays.

Like I posted before and similar to you now, I don't wish anything harmful to this guy over what he did here either. While I totally disagree with his actions and am glad he no longer is a LEO, that doesn't mean I think he deserves to suffer anything beyond what is fair. Loss of job, sure, as he obviously wasn't able to perform his duties in the method required of him. No problem, not everyone is suited for every job. He just needs to find a profession he's suited for, that's all.

Thanks mOjOm, for saying that. I really needed to hear that. With all my talk of turncoats, and sticking up for what is right. Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. Its good we can talk frankly and with the freedom to just get it off our chest.
This is what this is about in part. Venting our frustrations and making our voices heard.
Spiritually I am just connected to each living being here, like you said.. I do not want to see harm come to any side of this debate. Yet the heavy handed Storm trooper make it hard for most to have any empathy for them.
They are kind of asking for what they are getting, after all this. And the eyes are upon them.
Let this be a lesson to all, when the eyes of the world are watching you, mind those manners. Both sides!

Thanks for your reply mOjOm. Did not want to sound like a hypocrite here, after pushing and expressing my anger. I feel better now that justice has been had this time. We can only wait to see what happens with the Bigger issue at hand.. but then again we all know this goes beyond Brown.
edit on 23114154985 by zysin5 because: spelling edit

More information that keeps coming out.. He will get a paid suspension, so his family should be fine till he gets a new job..
Ugh. see, I flip flop here on my feelings, so I will make this my last message here, that is emotionally charged. Just the facts for now on.
Book um Dano!
THANKS to everyone here!!!

Sounds like intimidation to me. Sad.

Perhaps it is time for mandatory mental evaluations? Clearly this officer has issues. Others like this should be removed from that line of work, immediately.

Edit, saw your update.

I agree, mandatory mental evaluations should be a must!!!

These are everyday people, being handed military grade hardware. And everyday officers carry a wide array of deadly weaponry. I thought mandatory mental evaluations was already in place.
Military have boot camps, and training grounds before any of them even get to touch a weapon.

Side note- Yeah I just live my life by the golden rule. Sure you have heard of it.
My empathy goes really far to all those shot and killed by the biggest Gang in the USA.
My heart hurts for all those effected. All human beings, families affected by this non sense.
I will agree however, I have a harder time showing empathy to those who have non for others. At it shuts them out of the over all connections, and severs my connection with them.

Thanks for your reply

It's nothin new.

Really? A pitch fork party? Let's not forget that this same crowd was looting. And shooting in the air. He has an assault rifle because he's a tactical response unit. Listen I love these forms but grow up. We need a show of force just as much as we need people to speak out against injustice. But to bash a kid who's scared too who prob didn't pay attention to his training because he never thought this would happen. Have you ever been in a racially charge riot type atmosphere? Well I have. It's intense on both sides. But the bottom line is they are cops. Like it or not you listen to what they say. a reply to: stirling

The police department itself doesn't agree with you as they kicked him out of Ferguson.

Another story about police officers who just can't say something nice:

The Times also found since-deleted tweets by Weston in which he says he's considering seeking out Eric Holder to punch him, accuses Ron Johnson of practicing a racial "double standard" in Ferguson, and characterizes Johnson's approach to protests as "Hug a Thug." Weston confirmed to the Times that the Twitter account in question was his.

I give you thanks for posting that for me here!
I scrolled down and now have the pictures I need to confirm those reports.

I am saddened to see these Agent provocateurs in full action here.
Just as with this cop. These people do not account for the masses here.

CONTEXT WARNING-- This photo has nothing to do with the officer making threats. I asked for confirmation about cocktails being used, as a side quest to this main thread here. In hind sight, might not have been wise, to mix these together, but the members here are sharp as a razor. Those of you who read this, can read between the lines.

Cocktails confirmed. via pictures. I also got confirmed reports that also it was them unsuccessfully lightning it. I did double check that, and found it to hold up. so please keep that in mind when viewing this photo. I asked for the photos, and I got this. So tired right now I am exhausted mentally and physically. It takes a toll. I will come back with a fresh mind set. and see if I can find more to this.
I have no will to spread dis info. But they are being shown, trying to light them.. No pics of them throwing these. Show me a pic of them being thrown and hitting cops.. The cops must have at least 1 photo of that right?

Again, exhausted and taxed out. I hope this photo does not make me seem like a MSM tool or anything.. Just trying to be fair to both sides.

But that still does not excuse this officer for his actions.

This site really has to do dig deepr than this, these guys do not live in Ferguson, but are part of the communist [party that has been paid by the government to incite violence, and give the cops an excuse to crack down hard. In response, people, especially the more hot blooded, ignorant people, will retaliate, giving further reason for military presence.

There are interviews were you see store managers saying they have never seen the looters before in their lives, and you see other videos of angry Ferguson residents accosting and shouting at rioters and looters, all who don't live around there, and some who are members of the communist group or new black panther group. These are government owned groups that are used for this purpose. More division, more chaos.
