Ferguson Still

There is no other News but Ferguson, and MSNBC is it’s prophet.

Well, no, that’s not completely fair, but it’s fairly close. All the networks seem to be zeroed in on this story, to the exclusion of almost all else.

And now Governor Nixon has brought in the National Guard.  And now, while the “10 days in August” continues, overnight violence has lead to the arrest of 31 ne’er-do-wells, and the story in the press starts to turn toward the police’s version of events as one, or perhaps more than a dozen witnesses corroborate the shooting officer’s view: the giant Brown rushed him, and would not stop. Naturally “the other side” now claims these are created witnesses, because their story didn’t hit the media first thing. Well, perhaps it did, but nobody was listening at the time.

“Josie” claimed when Wilson opened the door to get out of the police car, “Michael slammed his door shut.” Brown, according to “Josie,” then “bum rushes him, punches him in the face.” She said at one point Brown “got the gun totally turned against his hip,” and “Darren shoves it away and the gun goes off.”

“Josie” claimed Brown and Johnson started running away and, following protocol, Wilson pursued them while they were 35 feet ahead of him and yelled, “Freeze.” She said Brown then started taunting Wilson by saying,”Oh, what are you going to do about it? You’re not going to shoot me.”

“All of a sudden, he just started to bum rush him, he just started coming at him full speed,” the caller claimed, “And he just started shooting and he just started coming. He really thinks he was on something.”

The caller claimed that Wilson thought “it was unbelievable” and that his “final shot was in the forehead.” Brown then allegedly fell about two to three feet in front of Wilson. “Josie” said Brown was not shot in the back, contrary to initial reports. An eyewitness at the scene has also said that Brown “doubled back” to charge the officer before he was shot and killed.

ONE ... count him; one ... one media talking head may have realized that the media is a culprit here to a very large extent. And that “media” includes new and old, mainstream and backwater.

Former CNN anchor and Fox News Channel’s “MediaBuzz” host Howie Kurtz criticized some outlets for creating “almost a lynch mob mentality” in Ferguson, MO in the wake of the shooting death of Michael Brown.

“Some liberal outlets [are] creating almost a lynch mob mentality around this, the Huffington Post today, screaming banner headline ‘Arrest Him.’ Now, the Huffington Post, nor you or I, knows exactly what happened” he said. And “when you cross that line into becoming an advocate and to demanding that somebody be prosecuted before the facts are in, while the investigation is going on, you’re grandstanding, you’re trying to keep the story alive and I really think it’s troubling.”

Kurtz also criticized CNN for showing the house of accused officer Darren Wilson, stating, “It defies my understanding how you could put his life or the life of his family in danger by even briefly showing the house or naming the street.”

I have to agree with that last. Willful endangerment, whatever the proper legal term. CNN ought to be sued for $25-50 million for this. That’s nearly an explicit call to violence. Implicit, absolutely. And for that they should pay heavily.

Meanwhile, Roger Simon beats out Obama by a country mile: he doesn’t blame Bush for Ferguson, he blames LBJ. But since Simon is Conservative, no one will listen.

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
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
