Awaiting GJ decision: Will mob rule reign in Ferguson? UPDATE

Taught by Obama, Ferguson vigilantes employ lawless tactics, pump up divisiveness

The aftermath of the Aug. 9 shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri has ignited a firestorm of protestors. Many are imported from outside the state to incite riots, including emboldened members of the Revolutionary Communist Party and New Black Panthers as spotted by the Blaze.

In anticipation of the worst, barricades have been erected around the building where a grand jury has been deliberating.

This surveillance video showing 6’4” and nearly 300 lb. Michael Brown engaged in a strong-armed robbery of a convenience store, just before the shooting, exposes him as less than an innocent “gentle giant” as he has been portrayed.

Last week in anticipation of the grand jury decision —- likely to come Monday —- Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency, even activating National Guard troops, as he cited the “possibility of expanded unrest.”

Businesses in both Ferguson and neighboring Clayton have boarded their windows in anticipation of violence and rioting if the decision is not to the mob’s liking.

Ryan Lovelace writing for National Review reports on the coarse disregard for police requests that the agitators outside the police department disband.

The Obama White House sent a message that escalation of protests was acceptable when it sent three officials to attend Brown’s funeral —- three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, which it snubbed last year. 

The administration has devoted considerable resources as it highlighted the case. At the time, Attorney General Eric Holder personally visited Ferguson and assigned dozens of investigators to conduct a federal civil rights probe.

The double standard, reported by the Washington Times, became ever more apparent as unarmed white 20-year-old Dillon Taylor was killed by a black police officer in Utah, with no White House representatives at his funeral and no federal probe underway.

Ferguson Grand Jury: No indictment

Looting, fires and pandemonium in cities across U.S. follow decision

 After hearing all of the evidence based on a full investigation, a 12-person grand jury returned no indictment in the highly publicized and racially charged case involving white police officer Darren Wilson, 28, in the shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown, a suspect in a strong armed robbery.

The fact that the mixed race grand jurors did not shrink from their duty out of fear of violence  renews faith in our legal system, that functions on presentation of facts rather than intimidation. The jurors were not sequestered, and knew full well the political ramifications of their decision.

Grand jurors do not decide guilt or innocence.  After weighing a full presentation of evidence, it is the duty of the 12 citizens to determine probable cause as to whether or not sufficient evidence exists to bring charges that will then be presented in a criminal trial.

Officer Wilson’s safety has been an issue since the Aug. 9 shooting, but a recent bounty on his head has put authorities on heightened alert. He is expected to resign his post with the Ferguson Police Department.

As predicted, absolute chaos has taken over, but not just in Ferguson. Mob mentality rioters in cities across the country are setting fires to businesses, looting stores, shooting weapons and overturning police cars. With tensions further inflamed by fiery speeches by Al Sharpton and his ilk, mobs rioted in New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Chicago, Oakland and Washington D.C.

    What America is witnessing is intimidation of our legal system by thugs. It occurred before in Watts, California. These ‘protestors’ are setting up an excuse for full scale rioting, setting fires,overturning cars and looting. And the post is correct in making the point that Barack Obama has given life to this lawless behavior. The first black president (who conveniently disregards the fact that he’s equally white) has fomented more distrust between the races than most of our American citizens have seen in their lifetimes.

    Mob, of course. Right out of multiple playbooks. Hitler and Alinsky just to name two. All the agitators, especially from out of town should be arrested. Guess that won’t work since two of the main ones are Obama and Holder.

    • Seen It All says:

      So true. The looting after Hurricane Katrina had nothing to do with alleged “injustice.” It was simply another excuse by black vandals to engage in lawlessness. The entitlement mentality has fostered wildness that is incompatible with a civilized society.
      Listen as this idiotic NBC newscaster Carl Quintanilla calls looters “gentlemen,” even as he says the police are “trying to keep the city of New Orleans from becoming a city of outlaws.” Apparently he has never learned the difference between a thief and gentlemen. Even the local police were shown stealing from the stores. Unfortunately, race is often a compelling component in these crimes.

  3. Maggie says:

    Our criminal justice system functions under the rule of law, not the rule of intimidation, although Barack Obama has chosen to ignore that Constitutional fact. He serves as a mentor for the thugs who have invaded Ferguson.

    Please keep your eyes on another excellent blog site:

    He is based in St. Louis and has all the latest info.

    May God protect all the police, fire, and members of the US military and National Guard.

    If there are any Fed Law Enforcement Agents who frequent SRAZ, or if you know of any, please take a look at what the Kansas Secretary of State (Mr. Kris Kobach) has been doing, and is doing, regarding illegal immigration.

    We are moving ahead quickly,” he tells another lawmaker. “We just have to sign the affidavits and gather the facts.”

    The key to his lawsuit is finding the right plaintiffs, he says, so he has spent the last weeks compiling a list of more than a dozen ICE agents who he says are eager to file suit. They were hired and trained to enforce the country’s immigration laws, and now, he says, they believe that the president is essentially asking them to break those laws. Kobach also wants at least one state to be a plaintiff, likely Texas and possibly others. States are “lining up to sue this time,” he says. He could file one lawsuit on behalf of several states, which he thinks might have the best chance of reaching the Supreme Court. Or he could file individual lawsuits, one for each state, and force the issue into several federal court districts.

    Either way, his chances hinge on the same issue that has plagued many of his previous immigration cases: He will have to prove the plaintiffs have standing to sue by showing they have suffered credible, personal injury because of Obama’s executive action. He thinks Texas, with an estimated 1.7 million illegal immigrants, might be his best chance. “The numbers there are good for us,” he says. “Illegal-alien households with kids consume a lot of resources: K-through-12 education, food stamps, earned income tax — these things add up.”

    “I believe in rules and fairness,” he says, and those are among the reasons he says he was attracted to immigration law in the first place. In what other kind of law was the legal conclusion so obvious? “Illegal alien,” he says. “We can argue it a million ways, but really, what more is there to say?”

    He received a White House fellowship a few weeks before Sept. 11, 2001, and after the terrorist attacks he advised then-Attorney General John Ashcroft on immigration issues. He returned home to Kansas City, Kan., a few years later to take a job as a professor of constitutional law, just as Kansas passed a statute giving illegal immigrants eligibility for in-state college tuition. Kobach filed a lawsuit on behalf of out-of-state students who also wanted to pay in-state rates, and then he filed similar suits in two other states. There were only a few dozen conservative experts on immigration law — and fewer still who had spent time working inside the White House — and his caseload spread quickly across nearly a dozen states. He filed motions to prevent illegal immigrants from renting apartments in Pennsylvania, from committing voter fraud in Kansas and from taking jobs without work authorization in Arizona and Alabama. Some of the motions have been successful, some have lost and some are ongoing. He helped presidential nominee Mitt Romney formulate his immigration positions. He co-wrote 16 state laws and became one of the country’s most divisive politicians before ever being elected to state office.

    Sanity lives in Ferguson! I firmly believed the grand jurors would vote to sacrifice one white cop in order to keep calm. It would have been like feeding red meat to a lion. I commend their grit in considering the evidence and not the mob..

    • Night Owl says:

      All well a good, Kent, but the predominantly black rioters are intent on real damage. Our nation is in turmoil under this president, who has done more to deteriorate race relations than any white president has ever done.

  7. Vince says:

    These outrageous actions described in the “update” remind me of the Watts riots on a grander scale. Why do backs seek to destroy ibusinesses in their own communities when they are angry? The store owners will not return, leaving the neighborhoods in even worse shape than they were in before.

  8. Matt DeGennaro says:

    Our black president has done more to give rise to black violence than to calm it. Regardless of what he says now, his actions and those of USAG Eric Holder have given the green light to these lawless street thugs and the Communists and Black Panthers they have welcomed into their ranks in Ferguson. Now they are rampaging across the entire USA. They obviously have no idea what our system of justice entails, and they obviously don’t care. They would rather destroy than build.

    • vinoaz says:

      Indeed! They are the brown shirts of our times. Can they eventually duplicate the brown shirts of the 1930s? The American Hero’s Channel has some very poignant programs about what happened in Germany, a highly civilized country.

  9. Maggie says:

    The store that 6’4, 300 pound Michael Brown robbed and where he shoved the small statured Asian owner has been looted by his thug “supporters.” What kind of people support a violent creep like Brown except others who are of the same mindset.

  10. Kimball says:

    In answer to this headline, “Will mob rule reign in Ferguson?’ The answer is clearly “YES!” That’s the protocol!
