One Shot, In Critical Condition, 7 Arrested After Protesters Break Ferguson Curfew

Tyler Durden's picture

As we reported last night, when the Ferguson curfew hitting at midnight, while most of the protesters dispersed, many still remained on the streets despite a clear warning by the police department that anyone still rioting/looting/protesting would be arrested. Which is when things went from bad to worse for yet another night. In roughly chronological order:

And then this happened:

According to Reuters, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson said the person shot at a restaurant was in critical condition. Police were unable to identify the victim, who he said was not shot by police, and that the alleged shooter was still at large. Well, what else would he say: that the cops shot yet another Fergusonite?

As we warned yesterday, all that is needed for the racial divide in this country to reach levels (of violence) not seen in generations, is for one or more people to die, whether in Ferguson or elsewhere, while protesting along racial lines. We can only hope that the person in critical condition makes a recovery or else this may well be just the beginning of what we have warned for years will happen when a record wealth/class/religious/ethnic divide, largely aided and abetted by the administration, finally spills out on the streets and the people demand a reversion to the mean: something which for those who follow history happens with clockwork regularity when the divide between the haves and the have nots reaches record levels.

So to summarize last night's events, here is KTVI with a first person account of the latest nightly rioting in Ferguson:

More tear gas and gun-fire in the streets during another violent night in Ferguson and leaving many to wonder when will it end.


One person shot, a police car hit by gun-fire, and seven arrests as police enforced the governor’s new curfew.   Police fired smoke bombs and tear gas at protesters who didn’t want to leave after the midnight curfew rolled around.  Police got reports of people on the roof at Red’s Barbecue.  Then they saw a man in the street with a gun and they found a man shot in the neck, critically hurt.  That is when the SWAT Team came in.


Police tried to move back the crowd with smoke bombs and tear gas to try to get to the shooting victim.  By the time police got to the scene near Red’s the victim was already gone.  He was taken to the hospital in a private car.


Authorities arrested seven people for failing to disperse the area around.  At around 1am it appeared that police had removed all of the protesters.


Captain Ron Johnson talks about dealing with the protesters at curfew time. “There was a shooting victim near QuikTrip and Red’s Barbeque.  As we approached Red’s Barbecue we deployed tear gas.  The first can of gas that was deployed was there.  In an effort to get back and get to the shooting victim.  Also, a police car at that location was shot at.”


We don’t have any details on whether that police car was hit.  But, we don’t believe that anyone was injured.


We did get video overnight of police processing the car used to take the shooting victim to the hospital.  County police tell FOX 2 that the shooting victim is in critical condition.  The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still unclear.

It is rumored, although unlikely, that a city devolving into a state of emergency and actual curfew, will be enough for the president to take a break from his golf game and make a teleprompted statement later today.

How can anyone complain when he's doing this kind of amazing CSI work?  From the article:   "One shocking incident involved reported vandalism: an oceanfront resident claimed someone spray-painted her back porch white.  But the Westhampton Beach force soon cracked the case.  'Officers said the deck was not covered in paint but rather bird droppings,' the Press reported."

Yeah imagine if that guy actually encountered even a petty crime taking place knowing the payoff that awaited him? I'd hate to be on the other end of that encounter.

They make a big deal about the curfew, then they arrest *seven* people when there were a fuckton more than *seven* people out there.  That telegraphs that they aren't going to enforce shit, except for some tear gas.  Why?  There are enough people out there that they cannot realistically enforce it.  Also, is there a law that allows the governor to announce a state of emergency and enact a curfew?  If not, then the curfew itself is unlawful, and even if there is, I would argue it is unconstitutional. 


Jesus Christ!  This is so fucking simple for the police:  Arrest the people looting, and if you see who's throwing shit, arrest them.  Leave everybody else alone.  Otherwise, they're going to whip the crowd up into a real frenzy and get real violence. 


When you make a big deal over shit, then fail to follow through, people are going to see real quickly that you're full of shit.

Looks like it's going to be a very hot August in the USSA....

I'll believe it when I see it.  I expect somebody to cave in, quite possibly the state.  Most of the time, that is what happens.  It is the one time where somebody doesn't cave in that scares me, and is why, even though most of the time somebody caves, this is a very dangerous game.

Please oh please let this be the beginning of a civil/race war. Any decent white man has a lot of grudges to placate.

Beatscape's picture

I completely agree. If the authorities are going to declare a curfew, then enforce it!  Otherwise, they are simply emboldening the protesters and looters and making the situation even worse and make a mockery of the so-called law. 

The looters are opportunist scum bags who are only hurting their case for their fallen comrade, Micheal Brown.

That which cannot be spoken. Africans are 5,000 years behind the evolutionary curve. When the Greeks were building the Acropolis, Africans were living in grass huts with dirt floors. When the American transcontinental railroad was completed 4,000 years later, Africans were still living in grass huts and hunting with spears. They are a primitive and violent race. This isn't a "put down" of them. They are WHAT they are. But make no mistake, a race unwilling to meet violence with violence, is  a soon to be extinct race. The politically mandated subservience to Africans is just one piece of the globalist attempt to destroy Western Culture and Values.

There is nothing more frightening than to watch ignorance in action.

Actually, there is. Children with underdeveloped minds. Like it or not, in the coming conflict your skin color will be your uniform. And those of you misaligned will be destroyed by your own naivette.

Thank you, Charles Manson. Guess I'll have to fight my wife in the next war seeing that our skin colors will be our "uniforms."

Does ZH skew older or is it just full of curiously younger xenophobes?

As expected, no reasoned response.
Simply an emotional outburst.
As I said......children.

SemperFudge's picture

Ok whatever you say Gringo.

"seeing that our skin colors will be our "uniforms.""

Not in my camp.  What matters is what's in your head.  Judging by skin color means you get a lot of statists and commies as most of those are white, even extra white.

Speaking of Manson, he's probably laughing his butt off right about now!

The problem with that theory is during the same time period the Nordics were also basically living in the stone age.

25or6to4's picture

Maybe so but they play catch up pretty quickly. By around 800ad they where conquering most of Europe and exploring N America. And so clever and adventurous were Africans than SE Asians beat them to Madagascar by 1400 years. Want to compare inventions and contributions to science by Nordic types vs. Africans?

Harbanger's picture

Did I hit a nerve?  I'm not comparing Nordics to Africans, it's just that both are on opposite ends of the spectrum.  Neither one is particularly more intelligent than the other, I'm only pointing out historical facts, both were equally unevolved.  What were considered barbarians back then (nordics) only took over the void created after the fall of the Roman empire.  I don't know how that is considered conquering any more than how the west is now being conquered by the 3rd world as it falls.  Unfortunately, most can't handle the truth.

25or6to4's picture

"Neither one is particular more intelligent than the other". Answer my last question first before attempting to bury yourself deeper. IQ of nordics 100+. IQ of sub Sahara African 65. Move on you lost this one.

Harbanger's picture

Don't argue with me.  OK. so you're slightly smarter than africans.  Nordic chicks are friendly, that's why you're the manager, not the boss and not the peon.  You should be grateful.

That has got to be one of the stupidest, most ignorant comments I have ever read. It also provides a scapegoat for what is going on and allows it to continue. There are black people that are much more accomplished than you and I combined.  If, as a race, black people were so far "behind the evolutionary curve" this would not be a possibility. It is a matter of history, environment (upbringing) and a government that helps perpetuate this sad situation with handouts.

As for the Greeks, yes they were definitely ahead of their time and their accomplishments were nothing short of magnificent. They ran into that rough patch in 1453 called the Turkish occupation that lasted until 1821 (into the 1900s in some parts) Then there was WWI, WWII, the civil war right after WWII. It is extremely hard to move forward under such circumstances.

On the other hand, how long can one dwell on the past? The victim mentality is only valid for so long before it starts becoming "the path of least resistance".  I say it is time to power forward from within. It is the only lasting solution.

You obviously believe that history is a true record.

History is written by TPTB at the time it's written.

If you don't read history with that in mind, you are wasting valuable time.

Epic troll, but Ill respond anyway.

The reason Eurasia ejoyed such technological advancement while areas such as north/south america and africa stayed virtually in the stone age is geographical and biological (in terms of the flora/fauna available), not racial, you fucking boob. Kinda hard to tell the villiage next door about your awesome invention/discovery when its a billion degrees outside and walking just a few miles might mean death. Or if you have virtually no fucking iron and mountains/jungle bisect your continent etc it might also put a damper on the whole "inventing the arch/metallurgy etc" thing.Might be kinda nice to have wide open fields, grain to plant on them, a large variety of beast of burden at your disposal. But nah, im sure the whole being white thing is enough on its own.

Jesus fucking christ have you done any research? You or the morons who upvoted you?

All you fucktards please google guns germs and steel, at least. Has its share of fault but just the wikipedia entry on it alone should be enough to debunk this nonsense.

Google The Bell Curve. Read em both.

Um, dude, the Greeks took just about everything called "civilization' from Africa.

Too many white people ignore that fact because they revel in being unhistorical, stupid, and racist.

Jesus said,


38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’39 But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.40 And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic,[a] let him have your cloak as well.41 And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.42 Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you.


43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?47 And if you greet only your brothers,[b] what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.


It's hard to be a Christian.

That was awesome!  We should always judge people on their individual merits, and this guy has gone far because he has refused to behave the way his "community" says he should.  More men like this, please!  White, Black, no difference.  We need more men like this.  Thanks for posting this!

When is that Racist Paki shopkeeper going to be arrested?  He comes around the counter ethnically indimidating Mr Brown and then attacks him with his throat.  He then has the nerve to protest to the Gentle Giant about taking the carton of cigars without paying.

At least the peaceful protesters looted and burned his store.  Serves the Racist right.
