It's Not a Riot it's a Circus
After watching the Laurel and Hardy meets the Keystone Cops show last night I have pretty much determined there isn't much more useful information to be gleaned from the Ferguson riots at least as far as mob or looting interactions go.
Last night the cops set up a strong defensive line down close to the McDonalds we have heard so much about and then placed small groups and pairs of officers up and down Florrisant road. I guess their plan was to keep protestors walking up and down in a controlled section. If anyone stopped walking the police began yelling at them to get going again or if someone stayed out in the road too long they would scream at them to get back on the sidewalk.
The main battle area from previous nights was lit up like daylight and they made a special little news reporters area out of yellow tape off to the side once again.
This area drew in the race hustlers like raw meat rotting in the sun brings vultures. These guys with aspirations of becoming the next Jesse Jackson were out between the crowd of protestors and the police line strutting around like Peacocks or actors you might see in a black and white movie production about the Russian Revolution funded by the Kremlin.
Yes it was that bad.
While the Dog and Pony show was going on at the McDonalds, two blocks North the real agitators were converging around the burned out Quick Trip. Someone threw a bottle of water with the gusto and accuracy you might expect from a powder puff football league and the real over acting began up at the photoshoot area taking even more attention away from what was forming down at the QT.
After watching the crowd through a couple of Livestream feeds it was obvious there were a lot more younger White boys milling around last night than any other time so far. There were also as usual almost as many people claiming to be some kind of reporter as there were protestors. Both of these developments were making the cops jumpy and agitated.
Eventually an armored vehicle with the sound weapon was deployed to the QT area and began announcing the crowd needed to disperse and put down the "do not enter sign" they had stolen from the road as well. The protestors kept brandishing the do not enter sign like it was a war trophy and considering what it said it did have a certain humor to it.
While this little stand off was going on protestors were coming back from the North and piling up behind the armored car police group which meant that the little pocket of police guys were now trapped between two groups of protestors and a third group (almost as big) of so called media on their flank.
Rocks began flying and what looked like a Molotov Cocktail from the North sailed towards the little pocket of police then the quick bam bam bam of a semi-auto pistol which sent the entire thing into Chaos and the want to be media kids hit the ground and were then gassed.
This is the problem with these semi-pro independent news feeds. Once they get a little CS gas in their nose you are in for half an hour of whining and drama as they bitch and moan after they have ran in frantic directionless terror for two and a half minutes. It's cute when you can figure out which two are interviewing each other about how much danger they were in though and run the feeds simultaneously like some kind of computerized echo chamber. Then the crowd of "Journalist" start to reform together like a convey of quail that has been flushed so you spend a period of time in the dark as they get their act together once again.
This is usually the point when I start watching the scrolling comments on their feed page for humor and let me tell you they never fail ya. Usually the comments are telling the camera guy to focus on some liberal chick and ask her to flash the camera but occasionally they come up with zingers.
After this incident the cops began rounding everybody up and made the reporter types leave. It was pretty much a complete media blackout for the rest of the night but I did manage to find some tweets from "reporters" who said the Canfield area residents were setting fires and the cops were going house to house. I never was able to find any confirmation of that though.
At this point the entire thing is just surreal. The media types are solidly anti-cop to the point they are actively joining in and helping the protestors and the protestors are obviously being infiltrated by outsiders now. The top of the LEO food chain has been taken over by posing politicians and Affirmative action hires while every local race hustler is using this to try and get his or her 15 minutes of fame.
There are no facts that are going to keep the Multi-Cult crowd from demanding the officer who shot that Michael Brown guy from being executed and nothing is going to appease them and as long as they are screaming during the day the outside agitators are going to go to work at night. With a small army of amateur reporters bolstered with Amnesty International and the Young lawyers club volunteers spreading hate and giving justification to violence the entire thing is just a cluster F&^k.
I am now more interested in seeing how long this show can actually go on more than anything else.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
