So Tonight Should Be Interesting UPDATED!!!.... Update 2.3.4
I got called out again today to take another trip South only this time a bit more East although still well within the Ozark Highlands area.
The only reason this is relevant is because I got to travel down I-44 a ways and let me tell you I-70 may have been devoid of MoHP guys the other day (According to a co-worker) but I-44 certainly had more than it's fair share this afternoon. Thick as thieves they were.
Of course our lovely Governator Jay Nixon has chimed in on the Ferguson riots and from what I heard on the news today has told the police to pull back tonight.
Makes one wonder how tonight is going to turn out now. Last night I watched with interest as a radio news guy walked around with a night cam and filmed the final push by the police into the crowd forming near the QT they burned a few days ago.
So tonight's the night I guess. Will the cops pull back? Will the rioters move forward? Will things escalate or die down?
Just waiting to see at this point I guess. Either way should prove interesting.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
The Gateway Pundit is already saying the protestors are back on line tonight. Let's see what happens...
According to a tweet and instagram about 1 minute ago (10:49 pm) Florrisant ave. is filling up with a new crowd of protestors now. This is after the earlier protest ended. The late night crowd has been where the real looting and destruction has happened the other four nights.
Maybe things are getting interesting now.
Media crew assaulted by protestors at Florrisant and Highmont....
I am noticing on Twitter that many people are praising the fact that Obummer ordered the stand down of the Ferguson Police and replacing them with State Patrolmen. Good job Jay Jay you can't win for losing can you?
12:25 AM scanner telling all teams to return to command post. Maybe they are pulling out for the night. Media is reporting it as peaceful but there were reports of shots fired and a couple of assaults. Of course the nights still young although I won't last much longer.
OOPS too soon. 12:29 AM reports of crowd at the local McDonalds and someone kicking in the drive through window. That would be the same McD's where the press guys were ran out of last night.
