Ferguson In Flames, Again

image

Unable to face the truth reached by a Grand Jury, the mob in Ferguson goes on a violent, destructive rampage once more. Burning down their own neighborhood again, and smashing up twice looted stores once more.

Oh, and here’s a little update: a black man’s body has been found in the area, shot and then burned. Police are calling this a suspicious death. No, really. They are. Just another deader in the hood, just another day. ON ANY OTHER DAY THIS WOULD NOT EVEN BE NEWS.

Violence erupted in the St. Louis area overnight, leading to more than 80 arrests, as protesters fired more than 100 gunshots and burned and looted as many as 25 buildings and vandalized police cars in Ferguson, Mo., after a grand jury did not indict a white police officer who shot and killed an 18-year-old black man in August, authorities said Tuesday morning.

St. Louis County police released records early Tuesday showing 61 people were arrested in Ferguson on charges including burglary and trespassing. And St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said 21 people were arrested in the city.

Heavily armed police fired pepper spray and smoke canisters to disperse the crowds of protesters. Police seized a .45-mm. automatic handgun as well.

yeah yeah, another journalistic gun error. It’s not a .45 semi-automatic, it’s a .45mm automatic. Which would make the bullets exactly 1/10 the diameter of BBs, 0.0177”. Guess this is a real needle gun, eh?

“We have no loss of life, but I am disappointed the night turned out this way,” St. Louis Police Chief Jon Belmar said.

Belmar said he heard more than 150 shots ring off in the night.

“What I’ve seen tonight is probably worse than the worst night we had in August,” Belmar said.

Gov. Jay Nixon ordered more Missouri National Guardsmen to provide security at the Ferguson Police Department.

St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Bob McCulloch announced the decision not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson on Monday evening. A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18. The panel met for 70 hours and heard from 60 witnesses.

McCulloch stressed that the grand jurors were “the only people who heard every witness ... and every piece of evidence.” He said many witnesses presented conflicting statements that ultimately were inconsistent with the physical evidence.

I watched the DA’s news conference, and thought it was the most respectful and detailed thing ever. [could’ve sworn I’d heard the ethnic breakdown was the other way around though] It was obvious that they had put in a huge effort and had inspected and debated every last bit of evidence and witness testimony. But the mob was going to have its way, no matter what.

And that’s the part that really pisses me off here. There never was a chance for justice ... from the mob.

So let Ferguson burn.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
