Ferguson Cop Points Gun At Protesters And Press, Screams "I Will F***ing Kill You", Has Been "Relocated"

Tyler Durden's picture

In the aftermath of recent violent events and now that even the US Attorney General has arrived, one would assume that the Ferguson police had at least some "sensitivity" training about how to approach protesters, especially those "armed" with cameras. Not in this case. The footage below out of Ferguson shows a police officer pointing his gun directly at protesters and reporters while screaming "I’m going to f***ing kill you!"

The clip shows a Ferguson officer with his gun raised pointing it directly at a citizen journalist who was live streaming at the time: the incident was witnessed by Infowars reporter Joe Biggs who was also filming the incident.

"My hands are up bro, my hands are up," states the journalist before the cop responds, "I’m going to f***ing kill you, get back, get back!"

"You’re going to kill him?” asks another individual before the journalist asks, “did he just threaten to kill me?"

When the cop is asked for his name he responds, "go fuck yourself."

It didn't end there.

As Infowars reports, "another clip shows the officer pointing his gun as protesters demand he lower the weapon. A second cop intervenes to make the officer lower his weapon as more irate demonstrators demand to know the officer’s name."

The officer’s response to people asking for his name almost immediately prompted the launch of the Twitter hashtag #officergofuckyourself.

Biggs live tweeted the incident, and also took this photograph of the cop.

The incident is certain to provoke curiosity as to just how the local Police department is handling the de-escalation of local tensions.

As for police officer #officergofuckyourself, it appears he is no longer "on location."

One also wonders: if not in Ferguson, just where can this pleasant, if "relocated", individual be encountered?

Then you are on the side of the One World crowd.

Hedgeless - I agree completely

At least we can all agree that if the store owner could defend himself and dropped the guy in the store this would all be one big non event buried on page 35 in the Ferguson crime blotter section.

Interesting side-note, the person in the store on tape was not the owner and it was not the owner of the store who called police. Not very widely reported, geewiz.

Makes no difference whether it was the owner or the store worker. Also not widely reported until now was that the guy did bumrush the cop and beat him up pretty good, geewiz.

I just found it ironic that you pointed out that the protestors were having success with the looters when the police backed off, so I figured I would just bring us back to the beginning because the store owner/worker could have handled the whole thing as I said and it would truly be a side note. Just like the knife weilding guy that got taken out and not really noticed in the news, geewiz.

You're fixating on an alternate reality hypothetical - itself based on very flimsy knowledge of what happen during 'the robbery' - a total rabbit hole. We could go on.. why was brown poor? If Brown had been wealthy would he have robbed the store? Was Brown poor because of Obama? Endless nonsense. 

Just like the knife weilding guy that got taken out and not really noticed in the news, geewiz.

Again, we're going on police testimony. And it's not much reported in the news because black people being shot / abused by police is routine. 

The man threw the food on the ground and walked away, she said. Minutes later, the police showed up and the man, who had what she said was a kitchen knife and who she said was acting erratically, walked with the knife toward the officers. The police then fired what she said were multiple shots.

I know you americans are comfortable with this type of police action, but in other parts of the world this would be VERY unkosher.

In New York, isnt this phrase considered a standard greeting?  And a term of endearment at family get togethers?

He was reassigned to the local kindergarten cross-walk patrol. But he didn't last long, as he reportedly yelled, "any of you homos touch my stuff and I kill ya!" at the first kid who "looked at him funny". On a more serious note, at appears that real-deal mercs (seals, berets) are on their way to Ferguson- see the story at thegatewaypundit.com. What could possibly go right?

If any cop there was spit upon, they would be arrested before it landed. I also hate the police state and appreciate law and order, but this is completely unacceptable.

Unacceptable? It's fucking felony assault.

but I also appreciate law and order.

Fuck "law & order." It's an excuse for slavery.

KingFiat's picture

Indeed. "Law and order" without the consent of the people having to submit to "law and order" is nothing but oppression. If oppression goes with opposition, it leads to slavery.

Law and Order was a third-rate television show.

No connection with reality.

Unfortunately, as we can see here by reading on ZH, - a large portion of the population are 'follow the rules' types who respect whatever 'authority' they were indoctrinated to obey. These people also tend to focus on the immediate surface; they aren't Big Picture view types.

So, in their 'logic' they can equate someone yelling and spitting on an 'authority figure' to pointing a gun at reporters and threatening to kill them. Protesters 'deserve it' and its only 'a lack of training' that's the problem. They also fail to see that the average to below average IQ cops aren't really running the show. So they never ask the significant questions: Why are so many low IQ types with anger issues made cops ?  Why are they militarized in terms of equipment & training ?  Why are they taught to view the citizenry as 'the enemy' ? Who benefits  from all this ?

If you want to know what police professionalism can be all you have to do is watch how the Hong Kong police handle protest crowds estimated at 1 million.

The crowds are much better behaved, too.

"Where are the videos of the mob yelling fuck you at the cops and spitting on them?"

I dunno.  

Post 'em if you got 'em.  

Are spitting and yelling 'Fuck you!' legally a crime now?   Arrest away.  The cops should have cameras too so that evidence can be used to justify the arrests and charges for spitting and saying 'Fuck you!'.  See, part of the problem is the cops have already spent the money on cameras and didn't put the cameras on their cars or helmets or whatever and tht is part of why the story of how Brown has gotten so muddied.  ..Their own cameras would have exonerated the officer that shot Brown or condemned him and that would have been that...

Shitty job in a shitty country but blacks, Democrats and liberals voted to make it really shitty.

 

No much sympathy for Free Shit Crowd or Union Govt Armed Thugs.  Those union govt boys - Democrat loving union boys.

willwork4food's picture

Yes, there are always more angles to see reality from. The cop looked scared to death. But I don't condone his unprofessional behavior pointing a gun directly at civilians without a cause. Name calling is not a cause.

Someone here once said that there will be a spark somewhere, sometime that lights the fuse to civil war. They also said it most likely would occur in a place no one has ever heard of.

Sizzurp's picture

Nobody should point a hot weapon at another person unless you mean to use it.  This cop is a despicable fat ass who needs to lose his job and his pension.  What a moron.

"Big deal. I'm sick of all the sensationalism by ZH. I've been a big fan of ZH since it's infancy, but not so much any more.'

 

It's not about a scared or violent cop shooting another black kid with a gangsta complex.

It's about the implementation of paramilitary forces against legitimate non-violent protest.

If you sit back and consent to peaceful protest being met with violence or the threat of violence by those in authority then you no longer have a free democracy... you have a police state.

That's why the dogs are barking so much...

g speed's picture

Whats the role of the ACLU in this---- is this a Jewish connection??  just asking-----

ZerOhead's picture

Who even cares.

Let the cops throw any rioters looters arsonists Al Sharpton and maybe some politicians and bankers in jail with our blessings and appreciation and leave everyone else alone.

Christophe2's picture

The fuckin' ACLU's purpose it to try to make it seem like the problem has been resolved: "Quick work by ACLU: Highway patrol called. They identified the cop. He will no longer be in ferguson."

=> What a bad joke.  Obviously, TPTB would LOVE for us to just figure the problem has been taken care of, when in fact, that cop is surely now (and in the future) just being a wild menace elsewhere...

The black kid was J walking. Cop stops him and he ends up dead. Got it. He was a thug, gang banger, etc. kid needed to die because of his bad choices. Good god damn thing that cop was there to make the world right and plug that mother fucker with bullets.

/s (do I really have to even do that? Guess so.)

Today it's j-walking, tomorrow it's not paying the $50 a week protection money.

I agree with the J walking. He found out after the 1st stop. That's why he backed up.

Are you misinformed on purpose?

That's the wonderful thing about democracy... you get freedom of choice.

So go ahead and click on another article that pleases you and let the others defend your right to click on that non-MSM endorsed article while you still can...

Freedom of choice? I think you mean anarchy, as there's absolutely no freedom within the mob-rule known as democracy.

(otherwise, I'm right there with ya)

Dude can skip the politics. Stay with the beautiful chart porn and VIX comments. Oscilators, standard deviations, moving averages. Those are where he should spend his time. There is a short opportunity with his name on it.

There is a broader world out there but no matter. Tomorrow there is money to made on the right side of the trade. A modern day bead salesman. Good for him. I hope the isolation in sigmas , alphas, betas and vegas complete his world for him.

NotApplicable's picture

Maybe you haven't noticed, but it's the financial system that has been co-opted by criminal loons.

Documenting the crime is all the only analysis left. As for charts, the only relevant ones are CBs balance sheet growth. Hell, I don't watch the "price" of anything anymore, as fiat is not a measurement of anything anymore.

If you think all this shit isn't connected, you should go read some financial history. Plunder by the state always leads to plunder OF the state.

Sure it would be nice to return to a market economy and financial analysis, but there's a whole bunch of war that has to occur first.

Not for nothing, but his comment (Wed, 08/20/2014 - 17:22 | 5122084), attracted no less than  150+ Negative Votes from fellow Zero Hedgers.

 

Maybe it was an honest mistake on your part, or maybe it was a case of mis-direction if you're a zionist hasbara troll. I don't know, but I will leave your next comment to clear that up for us.
