    Tear gas being fired at protestors again. Not even curfew now. Cops are in riot gear and gas masks!
    Protestors hands up, some on their knees! This is OUTRAGEOUS!!!

    If you’re on Twitter, go the #Ferguson or @AntonioFrench.

    “After police in Kenosha, Wis., shot my 21-year-old son to death outside his house ten years ago — and then immediately cleared themselves of all wrongdoing — an African-American man approached me and said: “If they can shoot a white boy like a dog, imagine what we’ve been going through.”

    Nerdy, left you a little note at the end of the last thread about how important your work is on this subject. You have been bringing it all — the frustration, the sorrow, the anger, the inspiration, the humanity and the facts. You are a force of nature.

      yep. What the hell is going on ? Ron Johnson is supposed to be in charge and it sure looks like the local PD isn’t under his authority.

      St-Louis County police, and Ferguson police are doing their own thing.

      ANd I just get the feeling that the local PD is telling a big FU to Ron Johnson, Governor Nixon, AG Holder and even the President.

        I am with you love politics. Someone is deliberately sabotaging Ron Johnson but it will not end well for that group. I suspected as much especially when he showed the community that he could relate because of his own son and said don’t tell me anything behind closed doors you don’t want me to repeat outside of it.

  21. August 17, 2014 at 10:59 pm

    Just as relevant today as it was in 1965 ….

    … Baldwin’s lesson still unlearned in much of America as events tonight in Ferguson, yet again, reaffirm.

      And a key thing:

      “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.”

      “Dr. Baden said that while Mr. Brown was shot at least six times, only three bullets were recovered from his body. But he has not yet seen the X-rays showing where the bullets were found, which would clarify the autopsy results. Nor has he had access to witness and police statements.

      Dr. Baden provided a diagram of the entry wounds, and noted that the six shots produced numerous wounds. Some of the bullets entered and exited several times, including one that left at least five different wounds.

      “This one here looks like his head was bent downward,” he said, indicating the wound at the very top of Mr. Brown’s head. “It can be because he’s giving up, or because he’s charging forward at the officer.”

      He stressed that his information does not assign blame or justify the shooting.
      Continue reading the main story

      “We need more information; for example, the police should be examining the automobile to see if there is gunshot residue in the police car,” he said.

      Dr. Baden, 80, is a well-known New York-based medical examiner, who is one of only about 400 board-certified forensic pathologists in the nation. He reviewed the autopsies of both President John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and has performed more than 20,000 autopsies himself. ”

      SNIP

      One of the bullets shattered Mr. Brown’s right eye, traveled through his face, exited his jaw and re-entered his collarbone. The last two shots in the head would have stopped him in his tracks and were likely the last fired.

      Mr. Brown, he said, would not have survived the shooting even if he had been taken to a hospital right away. The autopsy indicated that he was otherwise healthy.

      SNIP

      “In my capacity as the forensic examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, ‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times,’ ” said Dr. Baden, who retired from the state police in 2011. “Right now there is too little information to forensically reconstruct the shooting.”

      Sue that would be the cops and thank you for recognizing that those officers are extremists and embarrassment to all America stands for.

      Not sure what POTUS calls for peace has to do with the PD actions or the police departments lack of integrity.

    We need to now pay attention to the autopsy report – yet none of the media is reporting it. WHY?

    Because they’re too busy reporting on the spectacle in Ferguson – trying to portray the protesters as agitators, and the autospy report DOES NOT PUT KILLER COP WILSON in a good light, and pretty much confirms the eyewitness accounts.

    • 121 nospin

      they will get to the autopsy report HF2. and I don’t think could get away with will portraying the protestors as agitators. Not when the media were threatened with getting shot, teargassed and maced.

      • 122 hopefruit2
        August 18, 2014 at 12:15 am

        The autopsy report is far more important to the ongoing investigation than any report of media getting teargassed. This can easily become a distraction and really shouldn’t be about the media.

        • 123 nospin
          August 18, 2014 at 12:27 am

            I hope you are right about the autopsy report. But I suspect the media is holding off reporting until they can find a way to smear the medical examiner, discredit the report, and obtain a fresh set of talking points from their sponsors at Koch, ALEC, NRA, KKK, etc….
