So Much for the Ferguson "My People" Love Fest Option
It's raining like crazy here this morning and it was raining pretty heavily at times last night but that didn't stop the predictable situation of more looting from taking place in St. Louis nor the dismal failure of the police under the direction of Snuggles Nixon (Missouri Governor) or Captain Ron (My People) Johnson.
About 12:45 or so this morning the police scanner came out with shots fired and a crowd gathered at a local market near the scene of the last several nights of protests. Shortly there after two vehicles in typical blacked out window configuration blocked a road and men with rifles were spotted.
This was while emergency crews were attempting to respond to a fire set at the local Dominoes pizza place. A small pocket of Police did pop some gas and/or smoke and attempt to disperse the crowd but were ordered to stand down.
At this point I switched to the only local live stream video I could find and watched the police line form up in the usual spot being filmed from the rioters side of things by some skinny White kid and his girl friend. While the police kept sending out a message to disperse the rioters danced, threw rocks and insults until the real looting began.
At about 1:15 or so several businesses were broken into. A beauty supply store, the liquor store where the innocent robbing thug took cigars and an electronics store were entered. As several news crews dashed to film the looting many of them were attacked by the looters and told to stay back including the CNN and Al Jezera (sp?) crews. One rioter came by and tried to grab the live stream guy's Female companion but she managed to shake him off and that's about when the liquor store was hit. The would be grabber made a dash for the alcohol.
As the livestream guy pulled away from the beauty supply store a man with a pistol came out and threatened them to get back. Livestreamer guy then went across the street where his car was parked near the liquor store and was violently confronted there and told to leave as well. At that point the remaining journalist and journalist want-to-bes and a couple of stray White people huddled together near the vandalized bus stop until several self appointed riot control people managed to stop the looting and moved the more violent looters down the road.
More reports of shots fired and then the locals who had managed to get control did begin guarding the businesses that were being looted and stop any more damage in a couple of places from happening. Witnesses reported that this did not stop the looting at the grocery and butcher shop however I could not find a live feed from that particular business.
The entire time this looting was going on the Police line under the not present command of Snuggles and Captain Ron continued to stand out about two blocks away and sing songs while holding hands. Or something.
At that point I couldn't stay up any longer and called it a night but reports I am reading this morning show the police never engaged and allowed the looting and rioting to just peter out on it's own.
Talk about "Camp of the Saints" live for all to see.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
