TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

Nah I think that’s exactly what’s going on.

"Coming into the area?"

Guys, the calls are coming from INSIDE THE FUCKING HOUSE.

A police officer in Kansas City, Mo. is facing internal review after he reportedly posted an inflammatory message on Facebook about the slain Ferguson, Mo. teen whose death has led to mounting chaos.

Televison station KCTV reported on Monday that Kansas City Police Department Officer Marc Catron posted a picture to his Facebook page along with this caption: “I’m sure young Michael Brown is innocent and just misunderstood. I’m sure he is a pillar of the Ferguson community.”

The photo depicted a black man with a wad of money in his mouth, pointing a gun at the camera. But the photo wasn’t of Brown at all. It was of a man in Oregon accused of murder.

Catron also reportedly posted about the violence that has erupted in Ferguson since the fatal police shooting. “Remember how white people rioted after OJ’s acquittal? Me neither,” Catron wrote, according to the television station.

*****

"Facing internal review"? This officer needs to be fired, immediately. Someone who is clearly a racist has no business policing a community.

Yep.

This is me. Every. Single. Morning.

Given these deliberate, coordinated and intensifying violent attacks on lives and property in Ferguson, I am directing the highly capable men and women of the Missouri National Guard to assist Colonel Ron Replogle and the Unified Command in restoring peace and order to this community.

Gov. Jay Nixon (via CNN Breaking News)

Yes, because rolling in armed military troops always does wonders for peace and order. How’s that thing in Iraq and Afghanistan going again?

Whether Michael Brown shoplifted a pack of Swishers from a convenience store is completely fucking irrelevant to the excessive use of force by police, and it’s disgusting that the Ferguson Police Department would try and use some petty teenage misconduct to shift attention away from their murderous violence.

This is what the people of Ferguson are up against and if you still don’t think that this is a big deal then you need to wake the fuck up

Fucking hell.

LTMC: Jesus, that girl’s face.

LTMC: Why is it that Movement Conservatives talk so much about the importance of the right to keep and bear arms as insurance against tyrannical government, but when “certain” people actually try to exercise that right, they suddenly catch religion on non-violence?
Oh right, racism.  Carry on.
