Missouri Governor Nixon Delivers Statement On Ferguson Turmoil

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In a few moments, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon will speak at 4:00 p.m. ET. about the turmoil in Ferguson. As NBC reports, Nixon canceled a planned visit to the state fair and said he would visit the St. Louis suburbs Thursday after a fourth night of civil unrest over the police killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. Nixon said in an earlier statement that the worsening situation in Ferguson was “deeply troubling.”

And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

An event like this will tip it over.  We know it.  They know it.

What came first the chicken or the egg? It's like asking what came first, the rich white liberal or the thug inner city lawless blacks, or what came first, the thug inner city lawless blacks or the natural liberal response, a militarized police force to protect them from the thug inner city lawless blacks.

Actually it is so complicated economically that it would take a long analysis to see how it progressed linearly.

Short Version: Blacks got some big advances in government employment rights in the 1960-1980... maybe mostly in Military & Federal Government. Civil Rights mostly helped women getting rights.

So after Factory jobs went overseas with American Capital there were many minorities that had moved to new communities for factory work... who were left in a lurch.

President Obama was the great Hope for many Minorities who needed better jobs and wanted a chance. But President Obama either abused his mandate or turned out to side with military, Wars, Drones, Rendition, and Torture. That is why he won't get impeachment.

Capitalism is about profit we all know. But it is also about controlling Legislators, Keeping the Lobby, Using Money as power to get support of Regulators, universities, and the Labor Market. It means getting lower taxes on the wealth and using resources overseas. Capitalism is not about taking care of people.

President Obama is a Capitalist who supports War, and who supports crazy progressive, liberal, or socialist ideas on the Side... such as Open Borders which the Republicans also support, and Corporate Subsidies and FISCAL Spending which the Republicans also support.

Poor Americans came first, then their hope let them down just like Al Sharpton, Louis Farakan, Jessie Jackson, and Jackson's Son. The owner of the Capital always wins - it is just that he tries to confuse people about his political ideology. Thus always a Tyrant.

Teach them to Fish, and they will forever be thankful.

The Drudge Report has a banner link to FOP Director Pasco, where he says he sees nothing wrong in what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri. This guy should be tested for drugs. Luckily, thanks to his comments against Obama, he should expect multiple audits from the IRS in the years ahead. What a mope!

----

The executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police criticized President Obama Thursday for his remarks about law enforcement in Ferguson, Mo. "I would contend that discussing police tactics from Martha's Vineyard is not helpful to ultimately calming the situation," director Jim Pasco said in an interview with The Hill. "I think what he has to do as president and as a constitutional lawyer is remember that there is a process in the United States and the process is being followed, for good or for ill, by the police and by the county and by the city and by the prosecutors’ office," Pasco added. . . . Pasco said both police and members of the public are entitled to due process but said he is not convinced police have used excessive force in Ferguson. "I'm not there, and neither is the president," Pasco said. "That is why we have due process in the United States. And this will all be sorted out over time. But right now, I haven't seen anything from afar — and maybe the president has — that would lead me to believe the police are doing anything except to restore order."

You got that right. At this morning's news conference in Ferguson, Nixon was spouting off about the need to be open and transparent to regain the trust of the people there. Then this afternoon when a British reporter asked twice who was responsible for the police's paramilitary actions last night, he replied each time "That's in the past" when it happened just last effing night. Unbelievable slime!

"NY post and twitter are reporting he's taking the county cops (the ones that were gassing reporters) out of the enforcement detail."

Setting further precedent that the county sheriff can be superseded at will

"The Sheriff is the lawful Chief Executive Officer and highest Peace Officer of the entire County in which he or she was elected. Unlike the State Police and Municipal Police, the Sheriff reports directly to the Citizens of the County. In today’s terms, the Sheriff is the “Chief Law Enforcement Officer” (CELO) of the County. The duties, responsibilities and authorities of the County Sheriff (a constitutional officer) are, at a minimum, the same as they were when the State Constitution was originally written. The duties, responsibilities and/or authorities of the Sheriff cannot be diminished by those in the legislature or the courts of the State or of the County. Only the Citizens of this Commonwealth, by a constitutional amendment (that is lawfully done) can diminish the duties, responsibilities and/or authorities of the County Sheriff.  These facts, and many more, were true and recognized in Pennsylvania long before it became a State on September 28, 1776 and lawfully remain true today."

It's obvious that the locals are thugs unworthy of badges. Their antics with the press guarantees a rethinking of just what power they will be allowed to have after this affair.

 

From what I'm seen, the local cops and SLP are nothing but bullies who do what they do because the know they will be aided and abbeted by the DA's office to get them off the criminal charges hook. The number of serial felonies they've commited is tremndous.

 

What is needed is a state constitutional admendment taking the investigation of cops and charging them with crimes out of the hands of the cops themselves, and the DAs. Neither can be trusted to be honest.

 

As for the locals, I expect them to be replaced with the NG, and militarized State Police (Troopers).

 

Martial Law by any other name . . .

Investigation, really, how long should it take to see that an unarmed man at least 20 feet from militarized police is shot in the back.  If it were anyone else who is not cop would be in jail and wait for a day in court.  This is BS and is happening all over the country.  The cops and all others in the force are criminal for not acting NOW.  It appears to go deeper and really it is anyone in the government criminal cabal.

The only reason the "investigation" will take so long ( I have heard weeks or months) is that they are trying to figure out how to blame the victim and the the cop go.

Let's face it .gov and the elite want Whites replaced in this country. Just by changing the immigration law in 1965 they guaranteed an eventual disappearance of the White race from the US.

The hordes of ILLEGAL immigrants attending schools, getting in-state tuition, getting SCHOLARSHIPS that are denied to White students, the Affirmative Action, the government set-asides in contracts ONLY for those who are of color or NON-GENTILE. Zuckerberg giving tons of money to republicans who SELL US OUT Immediately. Soros funding immigratin, the Koch brothers funding black colleges and IMMIGRATION, the VISA system to replace white workers with Asian and other employees, of course the WHITE employee must TRAIN his replacement if he wants severance pay.

This was by DESIGN, not by chance.
And who cares about US? NOBODY, not even our fellow whites, but that better change FAST.

Read her harrowing story and then realize this is the RULE not the exception. WHITE MEN AND WOMEN WTFU you are TARGETED for extinction and YOU fund your very demise by paying taxes to your EXECUTIONERS, the same ones who BUTCHERED the Czar and his family.
The LITERAL descendants of those BUTCHERS now are Big City Mayors who were White House Chiefs of Staff, they are Senators, Fed Big Shots, Wall Street helmsmen, movie producers, you get the idea? And they RUN our government.

Another tech-worker, Diane Drozdowski, was forced out of her job at American Express in Phoenix, AZ. After her manager used "bully tactics and psychological warfare" to try to get her to quit, resulting in a mental breakdown, she was replaced by two Indian workers based in India. American Express flew these Indian workers to Phoenix and forced her to train them, upon threat of losing her severance pay.

well, typically from northen latitudes.  Something about tropical growing seasons being year round vs. weather patterns that forced neolithic "whites" to organize, prioritize and plan ahead.

Because their environment was more efficient at punishing the sick, lame and lazy.

Dial this ahead about 10k years and we're stuffing high fructose corn sweetners and GMO wheat products down sub 80 IQ lowlife trash's throats.  FOR FREE.

Straw haired, dried up shrill harpies and limp wristed fembot "men" have managed to wrest control by means of "fairness" and mandate that we interrupt Darwins good works.  The part he got correct.

Result:  near idiots squirt out kids with regularity and they're not culled by playing with plastic bags because there's a warning label that pictographically reminds them not to put it on their fucking heads.

Saint Lou may see some falling property value, but it's no Detroit.  Being at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers means that St. Louis is likely to have a resurgence in importance if/when the country's trucking network diminishes due to passing the peak of oil production.

A lot of calories will have to be shipped down the Mississippi in that case.

Who’s to Blame for the Ferguson Riots?

The day before Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Missouri, and the town went up in flames, citizens of Baltimore buried a three-year-old black child, McKenzie Elliot. A stray bullet, fired in another one of those “random” acts of mayhem that are buried deep in local newspapers, killed little McKenzie. That same day, the city of Baltimore implemented a curfew. Children under 14 must be indoors by 9 p.m., with 14-, 15-, and 16-year-olds inside by 10 p.m. on school nights and 11 p.m. on weekends.

A spokesman for the black mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, explained the purpose of the curfew: “The primary goal of all of this is to make sure young people who may be in challenging situations late at night are able to get home safely.”

Curfews are usually imposed as part of martial law. In cities with large black populations, however, this kind of authoritarianism is common. Nor are curfews imposed by whites on blacks–blacks often complain that whites had not been doing enough to police their communities.

Well let's see

I haven't heard yet that the mayor should take Responsibility.

Maybe the Government Culture, Federal Culture, is that we can't find the people at the top responsible. Disperse Responsibility between broad layers and many agencies.

We Federalized the States with Federal Funding, Federal Training Funds, Trips to Israel, and Free Weapons. Plus we set up regional offices like fusion centers to strengthen relationships and networks... and to offer more insight into the Technology which is spreading. Then federal employees identify and enlist key people to work with & to groom into our processes, military procedures, and communications devices.

We take care of our people. In government this is called Sovereign Immunity where supervisors, directors or officers are acting for the bigger agency and are excused from any harm unless... it is a gross capital crime.

Look around Wash DC. Few Whistleblower, bonuses to keep your mouth shut, your resume gets stronger from service and loyalty... keep quiet, don't cause waves... and later a new admin will bring you back at a higher level, plus we know bankers & financial networks who can hire you or put you on their board of directors.

Swinging Door to Industry, Regulation capture, Conflict of Interest,... we call it crisis management.
