While the second day of protests in Ferguson were far more contained as a result of the tripled presence of national guard troops in the St. Louis suburb, with media instead focusing on events in New York, LA and other major metropolitan centers, St. Louis violence failed to avoid the headlines for another day when shortly before 3 am, two FBI agents were shot early Wednesday morning in north St. Louis County.

The good news according to Reuters, is that this latest assault was "not directly related" to racially charged unrest in and around nearby Ferguson, an agency spokeswoman said. "The incident is not directly related to the Ferguson protests," Wu said, but did not elaborate further.

That said, considering how tense the situation in Ferguson - and around the country - already is, somehow we doubt the authorities would voluntarily seek to inflame tensions any further.

Of course they don`t want to point the finger towards the Ferguson protests, but this can`t be a good thing.

I guess we just have to wait and see what will happen next.

Riiiiiiiiiight, now why would they ever want to do that?

All they have done since this whole nonsense started is fan the flames.

I have been sitting here listening to all this for the past 2 nights, listening to both the police scanner for St.Louis county and watching live streaming video of the protests. I grew up there and have been watching my old neighborhood burn down. I am so glad I got out of there back in '01 and never went back. I still have a few friends and family from my ex's side there. I never would have believed in a thousand years that this would blow up this bad. But it did. And I think that those of us that are against government corruption and militarized police should use this. Instead of making it about one person or a couple,we should use it to bring about real change that all can live better lives with.

Report: Body Found Shot to Death, Set Fire Near Apartment Complex Where Michael Brown Died


stlouis.cbslocal.com...



The body of a black male was reportedly found near Canfield Green Apartments in Ferguson, the same complex where Michael Brown was fatally shot by officer Darren Wilson during an altercation Aug. 9.

KTVI-TV reports that the man, in his 20s, was shot to death and set on fire.

Hospitals report having treated at least 14 people who were injured during the unrest. Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis says it admitted two injured people and treated and released five others. It didn’t disclose the nature of the injuries. Christian Hospital, near Ferguson, says it treated six people for minor injuries, and Saint Louis University Hospital says it treated one person. Many Ferguson-area districts cancelled classes out of concern about the safety of getting children to and from school.


Is this how people who want their voices to be heard
about how they feel they have been unjustly treated behave?

This body is a young black male.

So to protest the killing of a young black male.
They go out and kill a young black male.

How civilized.


We really should take these people seriously now,
they hate it when people kill young black males and want it stopped.

NOT!

They want an excuse to riot

They want an excuse to steal

They want an excuse to hurt other people

They want an excuse to act as horribly as they possibly can.

All they have done is shown the most evil, most terrible, most deranged inner side of themselves as human beings.

That is the message I take away from all that has been happening in Ferguson.

Exactly what i'm thinking.

As a man who's parents are black and white these race riots are getting tired. People have lost their goddamn minds. Yea burning down your own neighberhood is gonna stop the police from shooting more people. Instead of burning down innocent people's businesses and cars just burn down the police station or the white house FFS. buncha retards running around the street acting like apes. What's next? Slinging your own poop at the police....

There had to be a lot of anger been building up for a long time for these kind of things to happen. But we have seen it before, not only in America, but London, Sweden and several times in France.

If you don`t give people prospects in life, these kinds of things will keep erupting.

There are simply whole parts of the Western World where people don`t have any prospect to break out of the situation they are in.

It`s actual how capitalism ends, the rich get richer and more and more poor will be created, it`s the downside of capitalism.

Good news? Not directly related? And covered up, for now.

Have you taken a look at non-caplitalist countries where non-capitalism actually exists?

The ruling class and elite are uber, uber rich
and the poor
make our people on welfare look like upper middle class.

No, there is no excuse to rip up your own neighborhood and to kill multiple people because "one person was killed"
That is simply excusing the most vile behavior
we have seen in years in the USA.

It is an example of what happens when the government purposely makes marriage and two parent families impossible by instituting policies that pay women not to marry or live with the father of their children, and the family looks like it did in the days of slavery. All this was done in the name of kindness by the government, pfffttt, they knew what they were doing, look at Planned Parenthood which was founded by Sanger who wanted to rid the world of people of color.

That is the message you are supposed to take from the coverage.

There are several hundred people looting, burning, and inciting mob violence. The media is showing a predominantly black crowd. They are destroying the lives of thousands of black citizens in Ferguson. People that have struggled to make it to where they are now. People that will most likely be unable to recover without assistance from the government.

Which will just be more ammunition for the Assholes in the crowd to shout "minorities depend on assistance!" in the coming months. These CITIZENS might have worked their fingers to the bone to make a small business to make ends meet and barley held on. Now, as a result of a hand full of white/black/Asian/mixed rioters it was all taken away. Many will ignore that and focus one the singe aspect of the crowd.

I don't mean to preach at you, I really don't. I am the last person in the world with the right to tell anyone anything. All I would suggest is - look a little deeper, look past the obvious, and see not the rioters but who PROFITS and or GAINS from them.

The "nonsense" i's designed as a distraction. What led up to "the whole nonsense" (gunning down unarmed people, for instance) is what started it.

You know what gets really old really quick. Ignorant comments like these. Gotta use a racial slang to get your point across.
I wish the staff would just start handing out bans against people who are compelled to use them, no warning just slam the hammer...

eh....wouldn't a cover up have some sort of like....media black out? because they're not exactly making any effort to hide it. just because there's "protests" doesn't mean that all other LE business in the area stops. a LEO was shot in the same area where the agents were shot, and the perp fled. just a shot in the dark here, but perhaps the agents were doing LE work?

Theres another kind of they, too. They blanket accuse the other "theys" for anything bad that happens. "They" all did all the bad things.

It has been long written on what the drawback is of capitalism, that`s not something which you simply can deny with pointing towards the drawback of other governmental systems. So yes it has its advantages, but as always there`s also a bad side.

The catalyst is not the issue, but I'll play.

unarmed people get gunned down when they attack people that are armed. Especially Armed police officers.

Basic cause and effect.

If the guy that attacked Brown was not St. Michael and instead was a purple skinned guy it would be the same result.

And ignores the oppression that goes on there in general. Good one. Focus on any bad behavior on the part of the people there and ignore what they are pissed off about.

(Hint: its not about shinier rims and flat screen TVs.)

I love how the media puts their spin on things. "The good news"


That's like reporting an auto accident and saying that no serious injuries occurred, even though one of the individuals suffered two broken legs, a broken collarbone and fractured ribs. But Hey! They're not serious are they!?

Effin' Dolts!
