Ferguson Riots Again: Police, Looters Exchange Teargas , Rubber Bullets, Molotov Cocktails: Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

UPDATE: Shots fired...



After more than a week of violent confrontations, tensions continues in Ferguson (following the death of Mike Brown - shot at least 6 times, twice in the head). The second night of quasi-martial-law in the Missouri town has once again erupted into riots (the third night in a row) as militarized police response just hours ahead of the midnight curfew. Protesters have looted stores and restaurants (including a McDonalds) and the once again heavily-armed police forces have responded in force with tear-gas and rubber bullets (to which protesters are responding with Molotov cocktails and returning gas canisters). This shows no signs of de-escalation at all as crowds chant "who polices the cops?" CNN reports at least one protester hit by rubber bullets and multiple injuries. Multiple gun shots heard - police: "leave or be arrested."


The police tactical response was triggered, according to a Lieutenant with St Louis city PD, by an attack on the command post with Molotov cocktails...

Escape from Ferguson...

As The NY Times reports, the autopsy is quite damning...


Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.

One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.

Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.

The bullets did not appear to have been shot from very close range because no gunpowder was present on his body. However, that determination could change if it turns out that there is gunshot residue on Mr. Brown’s clothing, to which Dr. Baden did not have access.

Two examples of police response so far...

"Get the fuck out of here"

and "you're getting mace next time you pass us"

This was boiling well before the shooting.

Let me speak clearly on behalf of all human beings with some dignity left: fuck da police.

Keyser's picture

At some point law and order must be restored... Or do you propose to just let the "humans" protest, loot, pillage and disobey the law? 


Seasmoke's picture

Yes I propose. The police need to be taken down.

police: "leave or be arrested."
Hmmm... I thought during a declared curfew anyone caught violating said curfew was suppossed to be arrested immediately on the spot. What kind of a wussy curfew is this? Next thing you know, they'll be drawing red-lines on the street to be crossed before arresting the curfew breakers. Geez! Grow some balls and take these thugs off the streets!

Looters at McDonald's "I'm Loving it"


they are doing it all wrong....burning down their own ghetto is not a good idea. Rich people live elsewhere. 

LetThemEatRand's picture

I get your point, but to these protestors anyone who onws a chain (that McDonald's chain costs $1M and up to franchise) is well to do, and they are lashing out at everyone who has more than them.   Even small store owners who probably make less than they do from government assistance. It is not rational but that's what it is going on.

Keyser above says "At some point law and order needs to be returned". Might be more to the point to start with Wall St where billions upon billions of dollars are being lopted from the people, as opposed to the unseemly conduct in Ferguson, where what, a few windows have been broken and a few shops have been looted. Amazing isn't it that the authorities are only geared towards resolving crime of the the lower class. Fucking convenient isn't it ! ! !

JLee2027's picture

Good point. True law and order will not return until the bankers are in prison. 

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

Problem is, I don't think the bankers will go to prison until the civil unrest in Ferguson comes to NYC or Washington DC. Even then, I'm still not sure. The entire system has to collapse for it to be rebuilt but then during the rebuilding how do you keep the sociopaths out? It's interesting to be witness to the unfolding of what may become one of histories most violent uprisings.

I find it rather odd that riots and looting in a small town of 21,000 can go on this long.  The Watts Riots in Los Angeles last only 7 days (April 11-17, 1965) and were way more serious than the relative shenanigans in Ferguson, Missouri.

"A 119-square-kilometer (46-square-mile) swath of Los Angeles would be
transformed into a combat zone during the ensuing six days." [Wikipedia]

The 1992 Rodney King riots were even more serious and that was quelled in six days (April 29-May 4).

What gives?  I mean I appreciate that the cops aren't resorting to their typical barbarism to quell such events, but why aren't they doing the same in Ferguson?  I've never known cops in modern times to pass over a good opportunity to crack some skulls and kill some niggers (34 dead in Watts Riots, 53 in 1992, not all attributable to the police of course but many were).

Something isn't make sense here.  Especially when we know the Missouri state troopers told the local cops to stand down.  I don't know if this is a good thing or not.  I just know it's unusual for this magnitude of rioting.

What caliber was Brown shot with?

How could he be shot in the right arm if his hands were up?

If Brown just committed a robbery and threatened to shoot the officer as he resisted arrest, the officer concluded Brown was armed and dangerous.

All shots were to the front of Brown so was he charging at the officer, not running away?

Bottom line is after the robbery and assaulting the  officer plus threatening to shoot him, Brown was seen as very dangerous to the officer.

Need to hear the police recording of this shooting.

@chumbelz: I found that a bit weird too. At first I thought state troopers were doing a better job, not all tactical and tear gassy but walking amongst the people peacefully, defusing the situation. But now it's back to fighting. Was this to be able to say, see what you made us do? We were trying to be nice.

Its about the Maidan protests ... in Kiev. The Kagans made that poor, sucker running Ukraine stand down. No head cracking aloud and he got run out of the country.  Now, if they start cracking heads in Furgeson, they'll look like hypocrites ... again.

When do the snipers that shoot both sides make their appearance??

This has to really suck for the people in that neighborhood who actually work for a living ... also seeing their neighborhood stores burned to the ground by Thuggery. Has to suck for them since their options are more limited now then ever before probably.

isnt it obvious what happened when the whites bugged out of our ancestral home of africa leaving the violence and ignorance behind and africa is still like that today while the civilized world ended up driving a car around the moon. some people never change, no matter where they are.

Lo, it is written, that there were some present at that time who were banksters, and they witnessed the productive capacity and wealth generation and prosperity and thriving of the free people of the world, and they said, "Lo, let us go rape those decent people. Let us debase their currency, their culture and their education, issue their debt at interest and well and truly fuck them up, so all that once was theirs will be ours."  And they made it so, and when the eyes of the dumbed-down people were finally allowed to open, they saw what the banksters had done, and they saw that they were fucked, and they were fucked. And there were those who blamed their neighbor, so that neighbor turned against neighbor, smashing his bus stops, looting his McDonalds, and stealing his stuff. And there were others who blamed cops, cursing them and threatening all manner of violence against them. And some cops, perhaps fearing for their own jobs and families and lives, lost their way. So truth and justice was lost amid the chaos, as brother turned against brother, inflicting needless violence. And the banksters, watching from afar, rubbed their hands together and saw that it was good.

How to Fabricate a High Power Rocket as an RPG Payload Delivery System...


The Motor has a 'K' Impulse and is 128 times as powerful as a Estes 'D" Engine. (Since a 'D' Engine will loft One Pound 100 feet vertically you can be assured that a 'K' Engine will be able to loft One Pound about 12,000 feet (~2,5 Miles) vertically. You can calculate Range with this data and Maximum Range will be achieved at launching 49o from the vertical.).  


Part 1




NOTE...DO NOT USE A OPEN FLAME TO DO THE NEXT TRICKS. This is so easy that it can be done in your kitchen...


Lab Grade KNO3 is available at your local Home DepotTM as Grant's Stump RemoverTM. You can purchase Cane Sugar at any local Grocery Store.


Part 2...




Part 3




Forget Part 4 as you are not really interested in recovering your Rocket and just cap the PVC with Cement and a PVC Cap.


Next make certain that your Center of Gravity is one half Caliber (the Diameter of your Rocket is One Caliber) in front of the Center of Pressure.


Here is a Technical Manual that instrcts the method of calculating the Center of Pressure.




And determining the Center of Gravity is quite simple as that is the Balance Point (where all Torques add to Zero) is the Center Of Gravity.


Of course this is dynamic as fuel is expelled in Flight but as long as the CG is ahead of the CP one will acheive stable Flight.


Rocketry is actually very simple and I have many designs for Rockets that are quite functional.


Plus there is Rocket Simulator, a Computer Program, which will give you the characteristics of flight before any construction is ever undertaken.


You have no clue about what I know, Lore. None whatsoever...

Tall Tom: There are lots of rocketry forums and groups where you can pursue your interest constructively. It really does nothing for me. Edit: I guess you mean to respond to my previous 'action figure' comment, and if so, then fine, you seem to know what you're talking about. But if you're going to post comments to the effect that you plan to make weapons that hurt people, don't be surprised if you attract unwanted attention from local authorities. Rgds

I prefer building a nice trebuchet myself cause they're moar environmentally friendly than all those nasty chemicals for a rocket.

Plus they're very quiet and don't light up your position when fired and have very little recoil too.

And they can be beautifully engraved and finished for added resale value!

Of course there's also my giant crossbow project but recoil is a bit of a problem.

"seeing their neighborhood stores burned to the ground ".

While people are fixated on the neighborhood stores in Ferguson being burnt to the ground, congress and their army of cronies are doing a damn fine job of burning the entire country to the ground. It's just that Ferguson is more of a spectacle and mind, the Wall St thugs are dressed so nicely it's hard to stay mad at them.

piliage's picture

Exactly. Good ol' racial hate a couple months before the congressional election. How wonderful for Obama and his clown car administration to take the eye of his shit foreign policy and fucked economy. Bread and circuses, MSM race huckster style.

Al Sharpton had a wonderful quote that shoplifting was not a crime. Holy fucksticks...

Obviously the answer is to print more money for the congress to spend on their highly successful programmes for black inner city youth that have seen the destruction of the black family. Just be sure to vote in 90 days everyone...

Idiocracy is now becoming documentary footage.

This has to really suck 


Yeah, bigtime sucks. And their property values will be cut in half.


What I don't get is why the cops don't shoot the looters.

That would be my instinctive response.

Of course, if they did shoot a few looters, riots might break out in several other cities.

But at SOME point, the nation has to put an end to this rioting bullshit.

Now I can see what the tanks and APCs are all about.

We have millions of hooligans in the USA, and not all are black. 

If ever we face a real crisis, all hell will break loose because there has been a breakdown of discipline.

"What I don't get is why the cops don't shoot the looters."


You mean go into the board rooms of Goldmam Sachs and JP Morgan and unleash a volley of bullets. I suspect they'd be jailed and sentenced to death faster than Michael Browns body could go cold.

Come to grips with who the real looters are.
