Looting Resumes In Ferguson; Local Police Ordered To Stand Down

Tyler Durden's picture

After a day of relative peace, things turned ugly again in Ferguson when shortly after midnight crowds again resorted to looting and vandalism in multiple businesses along West Florissant Ave with the focal point being the QuikTrip convenience store which Mike Brown allegedly robbed. The incidents seemed to gather steam after 12:00am.

According to KTVI, at least 200 St. Louis County Police officers were on scene and helping handle the situation. They confirm the Domino’s Pizza on West Florissant was set fire and burned. They also confirm multiple businesses vandalized and looted. But the shocker happened when county Police told Fox 2 News that its officers were at the Ferguson Market earlier when looters showed up, but were ordered to “Stand down” by Missouri State Highway Patrol incident commanders at the scene and basically withdrew and allowed the looters to have their way with the store.

So if the cops won't protect, then vigilante justice is inevitable:

In other words, first appeasement in the international arena, and now, domestically. Is it surprising then that increasingly the death of Mike Brown appears to merely be a pretext for even more looting? One does wonder just where and why the order to replace the local police with a highway patrol presence came in the first place.

As KFTI further, reports, the Missouri Highway Patrol continues to have incident command at the scene. A spokesman said they are gathering information and plan a news conference later this morning. They did not have any solid information about damage, arrests, or injuries.

As of this morning the looting activity seems to have quieted, but local media outlets report live pictures of cars racing down West Florissant and driving erratic. Furthermore, after being told to stand aside, a strong police presence appears to be returning and moving down West Florissant and standing off with some protestors.

And just in case Ukraine wants some pointers on what "evidence" means, here is photographic and video proof of the overnight events.

Meanwhile, the entire world is watching:

So to summarize: the revolution may not be televised, but the looting will sure be tweeted.

WTF!!!

The FEds send in a platoon of heavily armed BLM agents to stop one old white guy from raising his cattle on land his family used for 100 years!

But the law is told to "stand down" when a bunch of black protestors are ripping apart stores and ruining it for their owners!?

WTF!

I got a lot of love for GOOD, DECENT black people in this country. If you get to know'em, they're some of the most dedicated and loyal friends and colleagues you'll ever have. That said, it's fucking sad as hell that TPTB has made them into a pariah class in our society. It really is. Slavery never ended with all these welfare programs and when you incarcerate so many young, able black men for non-violent crimes like smoking dope, I mean, that shit's gotta stop because these people have and still do have a lot to contribute to our society.

What they need is freedom. They don't know that. But they do. Free the slaves once and for all.

I didn't know where Ferguson is, so I looked it up on Google Maps. A couple of miles west of the action is St. Louis International Airport, which also contains the Missouri Air National Guard. It's kind of ironic that the Feds are so close and are doing absolutely nothing.

Let's keep the "federal" in fedearlism, please.  

 Central government is a cause and instigator of this, not a cure.  LBJ do-gooder demagogue social engineering inspired by Marx ruined the black family integrally.   They used to have intact families and go to church.   Whatever you think of the content of the religion part these were community centers that helped people eschew drug abuse, abuse in general, criminality, etc and did a lot of the work government wanted in on.   For that matter, their families did a lot of the work government wanted in on.

Psy-op all the way.  Looting is encouraged so that they have an excuse to build up the militarized police presence, hoping to create a powder-keg where someone actually takes a shot at a cop so they can go ape-shit on the populace.

I agree LBJ's great society locked most people into their socio-economic class.  Though blacks made great strides in the 1950's, the introduction of major socialism in the 1960's caused them not only to be locked into their class but regress in many cases. And though it was government who now causes them so many issues they have been conditioned to turn to them for help.

Who ordered the stand-down and why?

Who are the looters?  Are they provocateurs?

Chief Wonder Bread's picture

Do you think the stand-down was ordered by anybody? More likely it was an unofficial police strike, to show what supposedly 'happens' when the police don't respond forcefully enuf>

in response to what? Petulant cops not allowed to play with their new toys. They will get their way in the end. It is in the dynamic of a Tyranny.

Who are the looters: simple: clueless urban yutes. The provocateurs are the politicians - local, state and federal - spinning it to suit their advantage.

And ffs from the pictures - televised or not - ask yourself the question: why are there more 'journalists' on the street than residents? Does it strike you as a manufactured event? Provocateur too strong a word? 

 

If the people really cared about the militarization of the police, then why wasn't there an outcry over Boston?

The people will readily accept their enslavement, they love and worship their servitude. Except for a few isolated voices, there is/has been no outcry over the formation of the American Police State. It is a done deal, get over it. Richard Perle gloats about it; AIPAC-financed. (I threw that in because there is a connection not easily discovered. So it won't be, not by the average voter.)

In the NYC emergency services (police and EMS mainly) , the term of art is "slow down". 

It happens so often, they had to name it.

They used to squawk it over the handset radios when 911 tried to dispatch a police unit up until Mortorola added CallerID feature to police radios.

Israel-trained police "occupy" Missouri after killing of black youth

(excerpt :

Emulating apartheid

While there is a wealth of scholarship on police militarization in the US, there has been little to no examination of the ways Israel’s security apparatus facilitates it. 

Decades of testing and perfecting methods of domination and control on a captive and disenfranchised Palestinian population has given rise to a booming “homeland security industry” in Israel that refashions occupation-style repression for use on marginalized populations in other parts of the world, including St. Louis.

Under the cover of counterterrorism training, nearly every major police agency in the United States has traveled to Israel for lessons in occupation enforcement, a phenomenon that journalist Max Blumenthal dubbed “the Israelification of America’s security apparatus.” Israeli forces and US police departments are so entrenched that the New York City Police Department (NYPD) has opened a branch in Tel Aviv.

In 2011, then St. Louis County Police Department chief Timothy Fitch attended the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) National Counter-Terrorism Seminar, an annual week-long Israeli training camp where US law enforcement executives “study first hand Israel’s tactics and strategies” directly from “senior commanders in the Israel National Police, experts from Israel’s intelligence and security services, and the Israel Defense Forces,” according to the ADL’s website.

Until Thursday night, the St. Louis County Police Department appeared to be the largest most militarized and brutish force operating in Ferguson. “St. Louis County Police” was scrawled across the side of most of the tactical unit vehicles and appeared on the combat-style uniforms of officers aiming assault rifles at peaceful protesters.

The ADL boasts of sending more than 175 senior US law enforcement officials from 100 different agencies to the seminar since 2004, which are “taking the lessons they learned in Israel back to the United States.”

The ADL is just one of several pro-Israel groups forging close ties between US cops and Israel’s security and intelligence apparatus."

An observation.....

I don't see a KFC or a Popeye's getting looted. Come to think of it I've never seen any riots anywhere with them getting looted.

Conclusion....

If I were to open a business in a Ferguson open one of those franchises. It's like future anti-riot insurance.

While we all freak out over morons stealing some TVs, let's not lose sight of the fact that people like Jon Corzine walk around freely after stealing billions of dollars. Let's focus on the bigger picture.

Hank Paulson was right about one thing: there could have been tanks in the streets. And if everyone was half as pissed off then as they are now, those tanks would have taken aim at the banks.

Instead, the tanks will be turned against all of us someday, and a good portion of the people in this country will cheer it on. The fuckers in charge are laughing their asses off right now.

There is a thin 'blue wall' keeping the rest of us from roasting marshmallows at our favorite restaurants and stores and sports stadiums. What is scary is listening to some of the residents and talking heads on the cable news channels talking about the police and the investigation. It is pretty clear that we are closer than ever to riots and looting on a national scale. This may be why the police and other government agencies are being armed to the teeth. It's not to stop rioting in the black neighborhoods - it's to protect, by lethal force, the government itself!

2 charged with first-degree murder in beating death of UNC professor, cancer researcher

 

Police arrested Derick Davis II, 23, and Troy Arrington, Jr., 27, Wednesday night after Liu, 59, of Durham, was found severely beaten around 1 p.m. on West University Drive. Liu was transported to UNC Hospitals, where he later died.

That's so sad. From your article:

 

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -

Two men with long criminal records are now charged with first-degree murder after Chapel Hill Police say they robbed and beat to death a University of North Carolina professor who researched ways to treat cancer.

 

So typical of the progressive, liberal leadership we have....the revolving jail doors...... in for felony murder this week and out the door 2 years later....only to Loot, Mayem and Murder again.....

Were those two also students at UNC?

  Jesse and Al know who their base is, and they know that stories about blacks targeting other races don't bring home the bacon.  Remember the Tawana Brawley case?  Al was happy to come to her "defense" before any facts were known, and quietly slithered away when it became clear that she had lied to avoid punishment from her parents. 

  A couple of years ago, I read an article in a Champaign,Il paper that infuriated me.  The story gave a brief account of 23 physical assaults perpetrated by groups of black men against white and asian individuals walking alone in the downtown area over approximately a two month period.  The article was buried toward the back of the paper near the classified section.  Why?  Because a liberalized media doesn't want to cast a negative light on minorities, even when they are just telling the truth.  Had we reversed the races of the attackers, and the attacked, the story would likely have not been largely ignored. 

  People like Al and Jesse figured out a long time ago that a vocal, organized minority can wield a tremendous amount of power, compared to a timid, less vocal majority.  They will continue to change the definition of what constitutes racism, sexism, ___ism, to secure any benefit they can.  The common threads of these groups are the same.  Every "oppressed" person must have an "oppressor".  The favorite bad man at the moment is your basic white guy.  I had no idea how many people I was taking advantage of until it was pointed out to me that even using the wrong wording can be unacceptable behavior.  Fuck that.  I make a point of mocking people (usually white) who want to correct me when I say "black" instead of "African American".  If that offends you, then you've officially run out of legitimate examples of racism. 

  If you want to see real prejudice, you can take a look at what's happenind in Syria, Iraq, or a variety of other 3rd world shitholes.  Nothing says oppression like someone putting your head on a fence spike in the city square because you wouldn't convert to islam.

Liberal Orthodoxy 101: Blacks are always victims.

If you question the orthodoxy under any circumstances, you are a waycist, and subject to termination, exile, and/or SPLC/NAACP lawfare.

Thus, Big Mike is the victim of police brutality, despite assaulting an officer of the law. Let us broaden our scope of inquiry..

Thus, Blacks are victims of "gun violence", despite being the overwhelming perpetrators of said gun violence. You must be disarmed in order to make them safe.

Thus, Blacks are victims of "bad schools", despite their poor conduct and educational habits being the overwhelming contributors to the bad school. Your child's school must be made unsafe in order to make their average test scores higher.

Thus, Blacks are victims of "housing projects", despite being the overwhelming perpetrators of violence, burglary, and vandalism that creates an unlivable environment. Your neighborhood must be made unlivable to ease the conditions they created in public housing.

Thus, Blacks are victims of "food deserts", despite being the overwhelming perpetrators of petty theft, armed robbery, and mob looting that lead to few viable businesses in their community. We haven't come up with a policy recommendation yet, but rest assured, infringement of your right to free association and expropriation of your taxes will be involved somehow. 

Shall I go on? Or can you see the inversion of perpetrator and victim yet?

Our current legal Multiculturalist regime only makes sense when viewed as an orthodox State Religion. If you disagree, or merely point out the obvious agency behind all these social ills, you are a heretic, and shall be made to suffer.

I completely agree; tyrants benefit when the people are divided and are set upon each other.

Do Americans want to save the most important national force in the history of civilization, namely the American society and its system of justice and freedom, or the Dow Jones Average for a privileged class of Wall Street oligarchs?   John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute explains how Americans’ world is darkening as their top court extinguishes the torch of freedom, IMO for an aggressive, privileged class which has open access to the Federal Reserve’s checkbook, i.e., to total power.

In “The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep With the Police State (think George Soros and John Podesta and Michael Chertoff),” he writes:

The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts. Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution. These are the hallmarks of the emerging American police state: where police officers, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, are part of an elite ruling class dependent on keeping the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens.

A review of the Supreme Court’s rulings over the past 10 years, including some critical ones this term, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order and protecting government agents than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution…

When all is said and done, what these assorted court rulings add up to is a disconcerting government mindset that interprets the Constitution one way for the elite—government entities, the police, corporations and the wealthy—and uses a second measure altogether for the underclasses—that is, you and me. Keep in mind that in former regimes such as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, the complicity of the courts was the final piece to fall into place before the totalitarian beast stepped out of the shadows and into the light. If history is a guide, then the future that awaits us is truly frightening. Time, as they say, grows short.
