Widespread violence continued a second night as more arrests were made in the majority black St. Louis suberb of Ferguson. Rioters and looters descended upon convencience stores for the second night. A Wal-mart, a boutique, a cell phone store, and a check cashing business, are among those in the city that have been destroyed so far. Others in St. Louis are shocked that the black residents are pillaging their own neighborhood.
White citizens are scared that they will become targets of unbridled rage after a local cop shot a 6 foot 4 black man in self-defense after being attacked and shoved into his own patrol car. The officer had told Mike Brown and a friend not to walk down the middle of the street. They could possibly be hit by a car and no doubt the race of the two did not factor into the instructions to remove themselves. It is common knowledge that pedestrians are not supposed to walk down the middle of roads. The race of the officer who was attacked will be announced today at a press conference. Whether white or non-white, police officers know that black neighborhoods are the most dangerous for cops to patrol as there is little regard for law and order.
Update: Police say they won’t name the police officer who shot the man because of numerous death threats to the officer and fellow police. The attorney for the Brown family says it was an outright execution. And two black witnesses say the cop stood over the man and repeatedly shot him. In view of the aggressive nature of Eric Holder’s stance toward investigative police work or what they term “racial profiling” it is highly unlikely that a white officer stood over a black man in the middle of a busy city – in the street – and shot a man over and over again. This isn’t the first time Al Sharpton has jumped to the defense of trumped up allegations against police. Google Tawana Brawley.
