Human Excrement Smeared on Police Cars in Greenwich Village

MANHATTAN — Call it a case of NYPD poo.

Human excrement has been smeared on the door handles of several police cars parked outside an NYPD facility in Greenwich Village, sources told “On The Inside.”

The scatological crime scene was discovered earlier this week when Community Affairs officers went to their cars outside an NYPD outpost at
34 1/2 E. 12th St., off University Place, and were met with the disgusting mess.

Police officials suspect that the excrement may be the handiwork of a few young homeless people who had been camping out overnight beneath scaffolding outside the building.

Community Affairs officers recently shooed them away and they may have left their mark in protest, a source said.

“They were near the police facility, camped out, first just in sleeping bags, and they would leave in the morning,” source said.

“But then it was more a tent city and I guess it was too much and they were staying too long and they were told to move by Community Affairs.”

The source added, however, that there might be another culprit.

The source explained that there has been some criticism from residents that Community Affairs officials take up too many parking spots on the street, painting lines for their vehicles and often placing wooden barricades in spaces to keep others from using them.

“It could be a local person,” the sources said. “No one knows."

Regardless, the patrol cars were driven to a local car wash where the evidence was washed away, the source said.

Sources say no arrests or summonses are expected.

Commies’ and Black Supremacists’ New Racial Fairy Tale: Store Video "Exonerates" Mike Brown, Who “Pays” for Cigars He Robbed Ferguson Store of; Anyone Who Sticks to the Facts “is, Clearly, a Racist”

Mike Brown appears to have paid for those cigars

National Black Newspaper

“Ferguson police’s attempts to demonize Michael Brown, the unarmed African-American teen killed by Officer Darren Wilson, may have hit a small snag,” reports Crooks and Liars. “The very video they released at the same time as they identified Wilson as the officer responsible for shooting Brown six times, including twice in the head, may show the opposite of what they intended.

“Supposedly, the video shows Brown robbing the store, taking a box of cigars. However, the attorney for Ferguson Market says that it was not anyone from the store who called police to report a robbery. In fact, a customer called to report what he viewed as a robbery.

[The store manager was so terrified of Brown and his villainous friends that he didn’t dare to call the police. Will McLeod and his racial socialist comrade at Crooks & Liars are trying to turn black racial terror into a virtue. When Brown turned back to the manager, he was probably warning him that he’d better not call the cops. This sort of threat is common in black diversitopias. Scott Cummings talked about this in Left Behind in Rosedale, his work on the black takeover and destruction of the formerly white, crime-free community of University Heights, Fort Worth. Black neighbors would march into the homes of elderly white neighbors in broad daylight, carry out their property, and threaten them that they’d wreak violence on them if they dared to call the police.]

“How, then, did police get the tape? According to St. Louis News, ‘The attorney said, during the course of Ferguson (PD)’s investigation, they came to the store and asked for to review the tape.” In other words, the tape was not viewed by police until after Michael Brown was dead in the street.

[No shit, Sherlock! But the cops had already put out descriptions of Brown and Johnson.]

“In their fervent effort to cast Brown in a negative light, they missed that the video seems to show Brown paying for the Swisher Sweets.

[Nowhere does the video show him paying for the cigars.]

“While it is difficult to be 100 percent certain, the video appears to show Brown purchasing some cigars but lacking the money for the amount he wished to buy. Brown seems to purchase some cigarillos, pay for them, attempt to buy more, then replace the ones he could not afford.”

[This is a fantasy.]

“The confrontation between Brown and the clerk may have been because Brown impatiently reached across the counter. Perhaps it was wrong for Brown to shove the employee – it is impossible to know what words were exchanged – but this footage seems to exonerate him. It is important to note that Brown only shoved the clerk after he put his hands on him.”

[The footage incriminates Brown. Of course, the manager or clerk put his hands on Brown first—he was trying to stop a thief!]
 


The Brown supporters’ version of the video
 

C&L does a good job discussing how media jumped on the “thug” bandwagon and attempted to aid the character assassination of Michael Brown.

Anyone attempting to justify this shooting by calling Michael Brown a “thug” or a “criminal” or who says that “he had a rap sheet,” as various people have claimed over the past few days is, clearly, a racist.

[The robbery video leaves no doubt that he was a thug.]

Even if Brown did commit the petty theft [felony strong arm robbery!] of a $5 [$50!] pack of cigars, a pack he appears to have paid for [liar!], gunning him down in the aftermath is murder. Petty theft is not a capital crime.

[Officer Darren Wilson didn’t shoot Brown dead over a $50 box of cigars; he killed him, in order to stop him from murdering Wilson. Besides, this mook can’t keep his lies straight. He already asserted that Officer Wilson had no idea that Brown had robbed the store. Then again, he’d already hyperbolized and lied Brown out of that crime.]


Henry Davis, 52, arrested Sept. 20, 2009, in a case of mistaken identity, was beaten by Ferguson PD, then charged with property damage for bleeding on an officer’s uniform. Davis insisted this photo be taken at the hospital before he was treated. Later, in court, the officer denied there’d been any blood on his uniform.

The police themselves are never supposed to dispense punishment. Their job is never to punish. That is the job of the [black rioters and lynch mobs] courts. Yet when the police in this country act to punish, they are given a pass by people who don’t seem to understand the rule of law, or the importance of our laws and rights.

Yet there has been this parade of forces attempting to justify the police action as if it could possibly be justified.

This cannot possibly be justified. There is no scenario in which the shooting of an unarmed teenager is remotely acceptable.

[He wasn’t unarmed. He was 6’4,” 292 lbs., which made his body a deadly weapon. Plus, he was attacking Officer Wilson 2-on-1 with his crime partner, Dorian Johnson, he or Johnson was trying to wrest Wilson’s gun away, and Brown had already given Wilson a hellacious beating.]

And the Ferguson PD have proved themselves to be liars, yet again. Just like the time that they charged a man with four counts of destruction of city property for bleeding on their uniforms while they beat him.

[They’re reheating Michael Daly’s pathetic stunt!]

The fact that the Ferguson PD are liars shouldn’t surprise anyone. But perhaps this bit of evidence can help us push back against the character assassination they’re using against an innocent murdered American teenager.

Police ID man killed in Temple Hills shootout, believe he stabbed, shot his 3-year-old daughter after shooting caretakers

TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (WJLA) - A 3-year-old girl is dead after a man believed to have shot two adults in Fort Washington led police on a chase Saturday afternoon, stopping twice and exchanging gunfire with officers before being shot to death, according to Prince George’s County Police.

After the man was killed, police found the 3-year-old girl in his car. She was taken to a hospital with injuries to the upper body and died later, police say.

On Sunday, police identified the man as Frederick Roy Miller, 38, of Landover. The girl was the shooter's daughter, and it appears Miller had stabbed and shot her, based on initial reports from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, police say.

The two adults who were shot earlier are the child’s maternal grandfather and great-grandmother, police say. They were taken to a hospital, where they are in critical condition.

When police responded to reports of a shooting in the 4200 block of Farmer Place in Fort Washington, they found two adults suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

Officers spotted a suspect driving a Nissan Altima and pursued him.

The man stopped briefly at Beech Rd. at Branch Ave when his car lost a wheel. He shot at police who returned fire. He took off again, before stopping in the 4600 block of Branch Ave. at Auth Road in Temple Hills.

The shooter and police exchanged gunfire again and the man was shot and killed.

Investigators have not yet determined the motive and circumstances of why the suspect shot his daughter's caretakers. The girl's mother was not present at the time of the shooting. She was found unharmed.

In a statement released Sunday, police identified the officers involved in the shootout:

The six involved officers are identified as Patrol Officer Alba De Jesus, assigned to District IV. He's been with the PGPD for two years.
Corporal Clarence Black, a 12-year veteran assigned to the District IV Special Assignment Team, Patrol Officer Brett Fairbrother, who's been with the department for a year and currently assigned to District IV, Corporal Paul Schweinsburg, a seven-year veteran assigned to the Regional Investigation Division and Patrol Officer Christopher Gehlhausen of District IV, who's been with the PGPD for three years.

All are Prince George's County Police Officers. Master Trooper Williard Shelton of the Maryland State Police is a 17-year veteran assigned to the Forestville Barrack. None of the officers was injured. All are on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

21-Hour Standoff in Black Harvey, IL, Ends with Rescue of Hostages, and Arrest of Raceless, Faceless, Nameless Robber-Kidnappers

Harvey hostages freed: “The kids, they looked shaken”
By Adam Sege and Meredith Rodriguez
Chicago Tribune

One by one Wednesday morning, four hostages held in a home in Harvey were led out by officers in SWAT gear. First the two girls, 6 and 12, the younger covering her head with her hands. Then the two women, their arms raised.

“One lady was crying,” said Jean Johnson, 56, who lives nearby. “The kids, they looked shaken.”


Cook County Sheriff discusses the tactics taken by law enforcement in the Harvey hostages rescue.

The rescue ended a nearly 21-hour standoff that began around 1 p.m. Tuesday when police were called to a report of a break-in at a house at 147th Street and Robey Avenue. When officers arrived, there was an exchange of gunfire with two suspected robbers, and two officers were wounded, one grazed in the arm, the other hit in the elbow.

The two suspects then took six young children and two women hostage, releasing four boys during the day and keeping the four others until a SWAT team stormed the home around 9:20 a.m.

Officers took down the front door and found the hostages and the two men on the second floor, according to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart. The suspects fired twice at the officers, but then were arrested, and the hostages taken to safety, authorities said.

Dart said authorities decided to enter the home when they saw “there was no end in sight” to the standoff and threats were being made against the women and children.
“There was a lot of tension,” he said.

Everyone involved, including the two suspects, appeared unhurt, but the released women “were crying hysterically,” Dart said. “They haven't been harmed, but they're very traumatized.”

Four boys between the ages of 1 and 11 were released unharmed throughout the day Tuesday, authorities said.

The two men repeatedly asked for a car during negotiations and at one point freed one of the children in exchange for cigarettes, a Cook County sheriff's spokesman said.

Officials said they were unaware of any relationship between the hostages and the men, whom Dart wouldn't identify at a Wednesday night news conference, other than to say they have criminal histories and were on parole.

• As good of an end result as was possible, but it took over 200 cops to get the result. Add that cost to the Ferguson mess and see how much two criminals cost the taxpayers SO FAR.

When the women and children were first taken hostage, police evacuated about 100 people on the block, and the Cook County sheriff's police hostage and barricade team was called to the scene, along with the Illinois State Police SWAT team and officers from more than two dozen jurisdictions. Three helicopters were deployed.

The Rosa L. Parks Middle School across the street was closed Wednesday as a precaution, town officials said.

A neighbor, Precious Brown, 24, said the family in the house has been in the neighborhood a little more than two years. The incident, she said, made her feel unsafe.

“It has always been a quiet neighborhood,” Brown said. “There has never been drama over here.”

“As if black people, the lust for theft encoded in their DNA”

By Steve Smith

Actually the MSM is pushing theft as a cultural right agenda for some* groups at home and abroad. Here's a gem story, a true classic about Madagascar young men, and their coming-of-age rite of passage of “cattle rustling.”

http://www.skynews.com.au/news/world/africa/2014/08/18/madagascar-clashes-leave-15-dead.html

They (MSM) don't take a side but “lament clashes,” as if the guy that lost 100 head of cattle to a migrant gang is an intolerant “racist” for not going along with the “tradition” of allowing others to come in and steal their stuff.

Crooked Iranian-American Immigration Judge Ashley Tabaddor in Hot Water; Ordered to Recuse Herself on Iranian Cases, She Files “Civil Rights” Beef

 

 

Excerpted by Nicholas Stix

Because she asserts that she is a political leader of Iranian-Americans, not only is she unfit to sit on cases involving them, but is unfit to sit on any cases. You cannot simultaneously be a political leader and a judge. It’s completely corrupt. Tabaddor is saying that she has a “civil right” to engage in corruption.
 

Immigration Judge Iranian-American Immigration Judge Ashley Tabaddor in Hot Water Ordered to Recuse Herself on Iranian Cases, Files “Civil Rights” Beef

However, the PAAIA lets slip that Tabaddor considers herself a “leader” in the Iranian community.

The suit, Tabaddor v. Holder et al., [PDF] charges that the DOJ based its disqualification order on racially-motivated and discriminatory criteria, specifically Judge Tabaddor’s Iranian heritage and her leadership role within the Iranian American community.

[She’s trying to turn her corruption into a virtue!]

Well, if she is a leader of an ethnic or national group, then legal ethics prescribe that she recuse herself to avoid the appearance of impropriety, a serious ethical issue for both real judges and the pseudo-judges of the EOIR. One cannot both be a leader in a particular ethnic community and claim that leadership has no appearance of a lack of impartiality. It is clear that Tabaddor considers herself an Iranian first, as Iranian-ness appears to be her major concern in public life.

It's important to remember that, in police shooting cases like the one in Ferguson, Missouri, the initial facts are often wrong. You don't want to end up looking like Rich Lowry, National Review editor, whose March 23, 2012, column on the Trayvon Martin shooting was titled, “Al Sharpton is Right.”

Early accounts are especially unreliable when reporters think they have a white racism story. Stirring up racial hatred is how journalists make up for sending their own kids to lily-white private schools....

Dorian Johnson’s Fake Story about the Death of Mike Brown



From The Spirit of Truth:

Tonight, on the Facebook page for the radio station "The Viper" 100.7 FM in St. Louis, the above image was posted along with the following text:
***BREAKING NEWS***Remember, you saw it and heard it here first. We have heard (from a VERY connected national media source) that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson will be cleared in the shooting of Michael Brown. The key: Dorian Johnson has now admitted that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. OFFICER WILSON WILL NOT BE CHARGED! This is scary. When this news is made official, we all have reason to be concerned about the reaction.
To substantiate the claim, the poster notes:
For the record....WE broke the autopsy results ON SATURDAY NIGHT, RIGHT HERE. Every detail that WE reported, (6 shots, none in the back, marijuana etc) were all confirmed on Monday.Our info has been right on, and I have no reason to doubt this. Is it a guarantee? No. That would be silly.

Hedy Epstein: Meet the Fake “Holocaust Survivor,” HAMAS Fan Arrested in Ferguson

You may have heard about the “Holocaust survivor” who was arrested while marching with the rioting protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, Monday. But Hedy Epstein–also a well known anti-Israel, self-hating Jew who tried to be on the HAMAS flotilla–is a fake. She “survived the Holocaust” as much as Harry Truman did because she was, unfortunately, spirited away from Germany and spent the years of the Holocaust in the safety of England and never saw the insides of a concentration camp. Not even close.

At age 90, Epstein is Exhibit #855,297,543 of the Billy Joel “Only the Good Die Young” corollary.

Eric Holder arrives in Ferguson as grand jury meets in Michael Brown case
08/20/14 10:03 A.M.
Updated 08/20/14 12:08 P.M.
By Trymaine Lee and Michele Richinick

FERGUSON, Missouri — Attorney General Eric Holder arrived in Ferguson Wednesday morning, on the heels of anight of relative calm between police and protesters 10 days after the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown.

Holder was scheduled to receive an on-the-ground briefing on the Justice Department’s civil rights investigation into the circumstances surrounding Brown’s killing, which occurred on Aug. 9. Holder also planned to meet with community leaders, elected officials and federal prosecutors here. Earlier this week, Holder asked Ferguson for “cooperation and patience” as the investigation proceeds.

Also on Wednesday, a grand jury was to begin considering preliminary evidence in the case. Six-year veteran policeman Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Brown, will be given the chance to appear and speak inside the courtroom. He has already been questioned by investigators.

Timeline of a tragedy: The Michael Brown story so far

Another fatal shooting nearby in St. Louis on Tuesday had raised fears that an already tense situation would boil over. The early morning hours Wednesday ended on edge, but without major incident.

Overnight, Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the evening represented a “turning point” for Ferguson. A small group of people protesting the police threw plastic bottles at them, but peacemakers formed a line around the instigators. Officers arrested 47 people, but they refrained from firing bullets and tear gas into the crowd.

Racial tension has been high in Ferguson, a predominantly African-American suburb, since Brown’s death. City leaders on Tuesday said they will create new efforts to help bridge the racial gaps, such as hiring more officers of color to join the local force. Last year, African-Americans accounted for 94% of arrests, 92% of searches, and 86% of vehicular stops. Yet during an interview with msnbc, Ferguson Mayor James Knowles insisted there isn’t a racial divide.

The grand jurors convening Wednesday are expected to meet once each week until the term expires in September. Then, a special grand jury will be impaneled only to hear the Brown case. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon called for a “vigorous prosecution” in pursuing Brown’s killing.

Johnson, who is now in charge of security in Ferguson, has said it could take months before any action is taken against officer Wilson.

Officials in the town have been heavily criticized for sometimes deploying a heavily-armed force against demonstrators, including children. Violence on Monday night contrasted the more peaceful appearance of demonstrators late Tuesday. A total of 78 people were arrested between Monday and early Tuesday, the majority from Missouri.

“We now have a responsibility to come together and do everything we can to achieve justice for this family, peace for this community, and have the courage to address the problems that have divided us for too long. Real problems of poverty, education, and race,” Nixon said Tuesday in a video address to residents.

An attorney for the Brown family said he believed an independent autopsy report released over the weekend indicated that the teen had been surrendering to police before he was killed. Brown’s funeral is planned for next Monday, Aug. 25.

You made your command decision, you pathetic, pandering weenie, stick to it!

Police: St. Louis officers kill knife-wielding man
By Alan Scher Zagier and Jim Salter
August 19, 2014 | Updated: August 19, 2014 6:36 p.m.
Associated Press/Houston Chronicle

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A large crowd, some chanting "Hands up, don't shoot," gathered Tuesday at the site where St. Louis police officers shot and killed a knife-wielding man after a reported convenience store robbery.

The shooting happened just a few miles from Ferguson, where the fatal shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old, Michael Brown, by a white police officer has touched off days of sometimes violent protests. The crowd had largely diminished within several hours of the shooting.

St. Louis Police Capt. Ed Kuntz said police responded shortly after noon following a report of a robbery at a convenience store. The suspect, a 23-year-old black man, refused police orders to drop the knife, Kuntz said.

When the man allegedly raised the weapon and moved toward the officers, both opened fire, killing him, said Kuntz.

Police Chief Sam Dotson said the man was acting erratically and told officers to "shoot me now, kill me now."

A man who said he witnessed the shooting, Robert Addison, 36, said the suspect cursed officers as he told them, "You'll have to kill me."
Both officers were placed on administrative duty pending an investigation, but Kuntz said the shooting appeared to be justified.

A crowd of about 100 onlookers gathered at the site within an hour of the shooting. Some chanted "Hands up, don't shoot," which has become the mantra of protesters in Ferguson after witnesses described Brown as having his hands in the air when he was shot Aug. 9.

Ferguson officer Darren Wilson has been on paid administrative leave since the shooting of Brown. The investigation could be turned over to a St. Louis County grand jury as early as Wednesday, though it isn't clear how long it will be before a determination is made about whether Wilson will be charged.

Musings on Spring Break's Deltopia Riots, Which were Also Started by an "Unarmed Black Teen," and on Child Molester Michael Jackson

 

Cop-battery suspect, Desmond Louis Edwards
 

"California cops and sheriff’s deputies arrested more than 100 people and another 44 were treated at hospitals during a spring break party near the University of California Santa Barbara."
 

By A WEJB/NSU Reader

The Deltopia Riots

Spring break riots this year in Isla Vista, near UCSB, started when an "unarmed black teen" used his "non-arm" back pack filled with alcohol to strike a white police officer.

DA Joyce Dudley didn't flinch. She charged the 17-year-old as an adult. She became DA after Tom Sneddon retired. He's the guy who prosecuted Michael Jackson. [A white judge just gave the black suspect a gift of pre-trial, criminal justice affirmative action, dropping a charge of mayhem, dropping the max the now 18-year-old “youth” can face from 12 years to eight. Look for him to do at most two years inside, if he gets any time at all.]

Luckily for Michael Jackson, the main witness at the trial was a flake. Unluckily for Michael Jackson, he was an addicted pervert. Yep, he did it. I lived in Santa Barbara, and he bought off the first victim's family. Nevertheless, there was much weeping about Mikey a few months ago on what would have been his 50th birthday.

The media are a problem, but so is black culture.

Barack Obama, Trayvon Martin, and the Four Dirty Little Secrets of Black America: A Reader Writes

[The connection to the Ferguson, MO riots should be obvious.]

“Barack Obama, Trayvon Martin and the Four Dirty Little Secrets of Black America.”

This article pointed out a few things that every white needs to know.

1. Truth. Blacks have no concept of “truth”. There is only self-dramatization for self-consumption. At all times with blacks, you are watching nothing more than a “performance.”

2. Morality. These “performances” by blacks have no moral content. They actually mean nothing. Whatever may be the so-called “reason” for the “performance,” i.e. a shooting, a funeral, a perceived “injustice,” none of that matters. They fake “caring” like they fake “sympathy,” in the same way bad actors fake emotions. It’s all to be on the stage for a moment and get some sense of self-importance.

3. Conviction and Promises. No black will ever learn from anything. No matter how horrible the experience, nothing will be learned. The lapse back into indifference and self-indulgence is irresistible. No matter how big the mistakes, they will shrug them off. Witness Obama. Likewise no plans to help blacks “improve” or self-motivate can ever be expected to follow through. To believe otherwise, and to throw money at the problem is the greatest folly of all.

So what kind of society can blacks live in and cause as little damage to others and themselves? The answer is the kind of society blacks generate for themselves when left totally alone. Witness Haiti. A tribal-based society of extended, ill-defined families ruled by the local strong man. An economy of subsistence agriculture. And above all, no contact with whites to enable or give credence to anything blacks say. The latter is the real source of the real damage done.

The answer is segregation.

Keep telling the truth.

Reports today that Michael (“Gentle Giant”) Brown inflicted an eye socket fracture on Ferguson police office Darren Wilson could further threaten the Main Stream Media’s white-guilt morality play—but they’ll figure something out. (Note that Christine Byers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter who tweeted yesterday that more than a dozen witnesses supported Wilson, seems to have been placed on leave).

The plain fact is that, probably via what seems from the outside to be some sort of a Journolist II-type co-ordination, the MSM has made huge contributions to the Ferguson fiasco—and above all to the paralysis of the police and to the near invisibility of the GOP, once again ducking its role as GAP, the Generic American Party.

If the MSM did have any honesty, they would have asked questions along the following lines….

Supporters Have Set Up a gofundme Account for Officer Darren Wilson

In a sickening display of agitprop, KMOV posted 50 pictures from last night’s riot, but not a single one of a black rioters engaging in violence. The white cops are depicted tackling and arresting blacks, holding long guns on blacks, and in riot gear, while black officers are shown embracing black demonstrators.

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Police said 31 people were arrested, two people were shot, and four officers were injured during the protests in Ferguson Monday night.

A flurry of gunshots was heard late Monday night coming from Canfield Dr. Police said one person was shot in the hand and they did not disclose the injuries of the other person. Both shooting victims are expected to survive.

According to police, four officers were injured when they were struck by rocks and bottles at various times throughout the night.

Firefighters battled two fires throughout the evening. One fire was at a business and the other was at a residence. No injuries were reported in either of the incidents.

During an early morning press conference, Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson said he was inspired by the citizens in Ferguson who withstood chaotic situations, had the courage to carryout [sic] peaceful demonstrations, and move on to other areas as the situation deteriorated.

“They are a part of the energy and goodness of this community,” Johnson said. “That energy can light up and inspire. It can help us move past violence.”

Johnson also suggested protesters protest during the daytime so the small minority of instigators cannot hide among the crowd of peaceful protesters.

The peaceful protest turned violent Monday night when there were reports of citizens throwing Molotov cocktails at police. Tear gas was deployed by law enforcement just after 11:00 p.m. News 4’s Julian Johnson was one of many hit by tear gas. Officers sent out reports over scanners and loudspeaker to tell [rioters] demonstrators to leave and go home.

A “Code 2000” was issued around 11:30 Monday night, meaning 50 additional officers were requested to come to the scene.

At one point during the night, police said they were in a standoff with protesters when they heard what sounded like a flurry of gunshots.

Around midnight, police ordered members of the media to leave protest area and go to the police command post.

Throughout the evening police confiscated two guns and a Molotov cocktail.

Police said there were not shots fired from their weapons during the evening.

A Grotesque Pantomime of Repression and Redemption
Activists and journalists are stuck in the racial resentments of the 1960s.
18 August 2014
City Journal

The American understanding of riots and racial violence was shaped a half-century ago, during the insurrections of the 1960s. To judge by the responses to the current rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, little has changed since then. After riots have wrought their physical and psychic damage, some invariably declare that the unrest was constructive. Patricia Bynes, a Democratic committeewoman for Ferguson, rationalized that the events in Ferguson would benefit the entire metropolitan area because, she said, “St. Louis never has had its true race moment, where they had to confront this.” She was topped by Missouri Highway Patrol captain Ron Johnson, who has been leading the police response in Ferguson. Speaking to a unity rally at a local church, Johnson suggested that, somehow, Brown’s death was “going to make it better for our sons to be better black men.” One rioter, who wouldn’t give his name, admitted that “If it wasn’t for the looting, we wouldn’t get the attention.” The virtue of disruption, academics and observers argue, is that it gives African-Americans a crisis with which to bargain. But after 50 years, what has this bargain achieved, except to cultivate a community that excels in resentment?

It’s not just African-Americans who are stuck in the sixties. Reporters are still seeking out the Kerner Commission’s white racists, who are ultimately to blame for all racial problems. Historians and sociologists are offering structural explanations for the violence; whites in general, and small businesses in particular, have little to say but simply flee to safer climes. In Ferguson, after a week of unrest that included looting and rioting, we know very little about the incident that resulted in Michael Brown’s death, despite the release of the first pathology report. The officer involved is in seclusion and has given no public statements. The Grand Jury, should one be convened, will likely have only a vague picture of what happened.

When Trayvon Martin was killed in 2012, the media constructed a racial narrative around the case—especially NBC news, which doctored tapes of George Zimmerman’s 911 call. It wasn’t until much later that pictures were shown of Zimmerman’s dark-skinned, Peruvian mother. Had those pictures been publicized earlier, the public might have understood that Trayvon Martin’s tragic death was not an example of a Klan-like murder.

Not like this: At the time of Mike Brown's felony strong-arm robbery and attack on Officer Darren Wilson, he was 6'4" and weighed 292 lbs. 

In Ferguson, the media’s preferred narrative—a “gentle giant” of a young black man gunned down for no reason by a racist cop—was short-circuited by a videotape, taken minutes before his death, depicting Michael Brown strong-arming a diminutive store clerk who’d caught him stealing a box of cigarillos. Deflated, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer described the video as a “smear.” Does he think the tape should have been suppressed? His CNN colleague Jake Tapper, just back from apologizing for Hamas in Gaza and justifiably angered by the misuse of military equipment to intimidate suburban civilians, subjected the state’s Democratic governor, Jay Nixon, to a vigorous grilling. Tapper suggested that Nixon had some atoning to do for his supposedly racist past before he could be relied on to take action in Ferguson. If only Tapper had been so hard-edged with Hamas.

Historian Colin Gordon has revived the old chestnut that the rioting owes to the failure of big cities to incorporate suburbs. The problem, argues Gordon, is that small towns and cities compete with each other to attract businesses. If they had higher taxes, it’s implied, they could afford to spend more on social services. But does anyone think that Ferguson would be better off incorporated into a dysfunctional St. Louis? The vast city of Los Angeles, with its 469 square miles (compared with St. Louis’s 69) saw two of the most violent “rebellions” of the last 50 years. What, in Gordon’s estimation, accounts for that?

Riots bring but one certainty—enormous economic and social costs. Businesses flee, taking jobs and tax revenues with them. Home values decline for all races, but particularly for blacks. Insurance costs rise and civic morale collapses. The black and white middle classes move out. Despite its busy port and enormous geographic assets, Newark, New Jersey has never fully recovered from its 1967 riot. This year, Newark elected as its mayor Ras Baraka, the son and political heir of Amiri Baraka—the intellectual inspiration for the 1967 unrest.

The story is similar in Detroit, which lost half its residents between 1967 and 2000. Civic authority was never restored after the late 1960s riots, which never really ended; they just continued in slow motion. “It got decided a long time ago in Detroit,” explained Adolph Mongo, advisor to the jailed former “hip-hop mayor,” Kwame Kilpatrick, that “the city belongs to the black man. The white man was a convenient target until there were no white men left in Detroit.” The upshot, explained Sam Riddle, an advisor to current congressman John Conyers, first elected in 1965, is that “the only difference between Detroit and the Third World in terms of corruption is that Detroit don’t have no goats in the streets.”

The grotesque pantomime of repression and redemption, riots and never-quite-achieved rewards, plays out time and again. The chaos in Ferguson is but the latest episode of this long, sad drama of resentment and revenge. The drama persists in part because so many journalists and academics, not to mention black activists, have so much invested in it. It’s the conceptual air that they breathe. Sadly, to paraphrase the philosopher Ernest Gellner, some failed practices cannot be the subject of reconsideration, because they already shape the way we think.

No doubt little will be learned from Ferguson. No doubt there will be more Fergusons.

Jay Nixon: National Guard to Ferguson
By Jonathan Topaz | 8/18/14 5:57 AM EDT
Politico

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is deploying the state National Guard to Ferguson to address the “intensifying violent attacks” in the suburb of St. Louis, he announced early Monday.

The Democratic governor’s announcement came after arguably the most violent night in the Missouri city since unarmed African-American 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a white police officer more than a week ago.

“Tonight, a day of hope, prayers, and peaceful protests was marred by the violent criminal acts of an organized and growing number of individuals, many from outside the community and state, whose actions are putting the residents and businesses of Ferguson at risk,” Nixon said in a statement.

(PHOTOS: Scenes of unrest from Ferguson)

“Given these deliberate, coordinated and intensifying violent attacks on lives and property in Ferguson,” he continued, “I am directing the highly capable men and women of the Missouri National Guard to assist [Missouri State Highway Patrol] Col. Ron Replogle and the Unified Command in restoring peace and order to this community.”

Sunday night marked the second evening of a state-imposed midnight-5 a.m. curfew Nixon put in place, a decision he said was necessary to prevent looters from doing more damage but has been criticized by many in the Ferguson community and elsewhere.

Police officials have acknowledged that they fired several smoke canisters and at least one tear gas canister Sunday, and many of the hundreds of officers in Ferguson Sunday evening appeared in riot gear. Protesters said the police acted without being provoked, while the police reported that they were responding to gunfire and Molotov cocktails thrown by members of the crowd. Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson said one protester shot another and that the victim was listed in critical condition early Monday morning. He also said he was forced to “elevate the level” of police response after some crowd members threw bottles at officers.

(Also on POLITICO: Nixon: 'Thunderstruck' by 'overmilitarization' in Ferguson)

A preliminary autopsy performed Sunday showed that Brown was shot at least six times and twice in the head, according to a report by The New York Times. He was shot four times in the right arm and the bullets didn’t appear to be fired from close range, the report said. Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Sunday that he directed the Justice Department to arrange for another autopsy to be performed by a federal medical examiner. Holder said the autopsy was ordered “due to the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family,” and as part of the greater federal investigation into Brown’s death.

On Thursday, Nixon directed Johnson to take control of security and law enforcement in Ferguson, and that evening saw no arrests and a much smaller, demilitarized police presence.

But on Friday, the Ferguson Police Department identified Brown’s shooter as six-year department veteran Darren Wilson, an announcement that angered some protesters by tying Brown to a convenience store robbery. Police later said Wilson was unaware that Brown was a suspect in the robbery. After a violent evening Friday, Nixon announced the curfew effective Saturday, a decision decried by the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, the ACLU and the Lawyers’ Committee.


Facts are No Problem for New York Times Lefties: ‘White Cop Shot Mike Brown Six Times in the FRONT, as Brown was Running AWAY’

Re: “Autopsy of Mike Brown Done for His Family by Dr. Michael Baden Shows He wasn’t Shot Once in the Back! All the Black Witnesses Lied! New York Times Buries Narrative-Shattering Lede, and Tries to Spin Report to Make White Cop Look Bad.”

The autopsy showing that Officer Darren Wilson did not shoot armed robber Mike Brown, who had attacked Wilson and was resisting arrest, a single time in the back has had no effect on the Times’ white communists and black supremacists.

No bullet in the back doesn't mean the officer wasn't shooting at Mike Brown as he was running away. "It appears in fact as if the cop shot the suspect in the arm to stop him, but he ducked and unfortunately caught a bullet in the head. He may still be charged." Amazing how you're able to recreate the scene . It's almost like you were there.

Autopsy of Mike Brown Done for His Family by Dr. Michael Baden Shows He wasn’t Shot Once in the Back! All the Black Witnesses Lied! New York Times Buries Narrative-Shattering Lede, and Tries to Spin Report to Make White Cop Look Bad

Dr. Baden waived his usual $20,000 fee for this job. I believe there are two reasons for this:

1. The family is black, and the unwritten rule is that blacks never have to pay for anything; and
2. If Baden had taken payment (i.e., in this case the promise of payment, which would never have come), his work product may have come under the control of Benjamin Crump and Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, who would surely have suppressed it, once they saw what it said. Thus, I believe (or rather, hope) that the 80-year-old Baden did the job for free in the interests of justice. I just hope his rectitude doesn’t cost him his life.

The racial fairy tale has included versions saying that Brown was on his knees, begging for his life with his arms raised, and that he was shot in the back while fleeing, and turned around, his hands raised, and was shot in the front, and that Officer Wilson shot him once in the back, knocking him down, and that the officer then stood over him, firing nine times into his prostrate body.

Brown was shot four times in the right arm, which is extremely unlikely coming from an officer firing into a man lying on his back.

Autopsy Shows Michael Brown was Struck at Least 6 Times
By Frances Robles and Julie Bosman
AUG. 17, 2014
New York Times

FERGUSON, Mo. — Michael Brown, the unarmed [!] black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.

One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.

Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.

    Week of Outcry and Confrontation in Ferguson


    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Sunday that the Justice Department would conduct its own autopsy, in addition to the one performed by local officials and this private one because, a department spokesman said, of “the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family.”

    The preliminary autopsy results are the first time that some of the critical information resulting in Mr. Brown’s death has been made public. Thousands of protesters demanding information and justice for what was widely viewed as a reckless shooting took to the streets here in rallies that ranged from peaceful to violent.

    Mr. Brown died last week in a confrontation with a police officer here in this suburb of St. Louis. The police department has come under harsh criticism for refusing to clarify the circumstances of the shooting and for responding to protests with military-style operational gear.

    “People have been asking: How many times was he shot? This information could have been released on Day 1,” Dr. Baden said in an interview after performing the autopsy. “They don’t do that, even as feelings built up among the citizenry that there was a cover-up. We are hoping to alleviate that.”

    Dr. Baden said that while Mr. Brown was shot at least six times, only three bullets were recovered from his body. But he has not yet seen the X-rays showing where the bullets were found, which would clarify the autopsy results. Nor has he had access to witness and police statements.

    Dr. Baden provided a diagram of the entry wounds, and noted that the six shots produced numerous wounds. Some of the bullets entered and exited several times, including one that left at least five different wounds.

    “This one here looks like his head was bent downward,” he said, indicating the wound at the very top of Mr. Brown’s head. “It can be because he’s giving up, or because he’s charging forward at the officer.”

    He stressed that his information does not assign blame or justify the shooting.

    “We need more information; for example, the police should be examining the automobile to see if there is gunshot residue in the police car,” he said.

    Dr. Baden, 80, is a well-known New York-based medical examiner, who is one of only about 400 board-certified forensic pathologists in the nation. He reviewed the autopsies of both President John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and has performed more than 20,000 autopsies himself.

    He is best known for having hosted the HBO show “Autopsy,” but he rankles when he is called a “celebrity medical examiner,” saying that the vast majority of what he does has nothing to do with celebrities.

    Dr. Baden said that because of the tremendous attention to the case, he waived his $10,000 fee.

    Prof. Shawn L. Parcells, a pathologist assistant based in Kansas, assisted Dr. Baden.

    “You do this for the families,” Mr. Parcells said.

    The two medical experts conducted the four-hour examination Sunday at the Austin A. Layne Mortuary in St. Louis. Benjamin L. Crump, a lawyer for Mr. Brown’s family who paid their travel expenses, hired them.

    “The sheer number of bullets and the way they were scattered all over his body showed this police officer had a brazen disregard for the very people he was supposed to protect in that community,” Mr. Crump said. “We want to make sure people understand what this case is about: This case is about a police officer executing a young unarmed man in broad daylight.”

    A spokesman for the Ferguson Police Department, Tim Zoll, said the police had not seen a report of the autopsy and therefore had no comment on it.

    Dr. Baden said he consulted with the St. Louis County medical examiner before conducting the autopsy.

    One of the bullets shattered Mr. Brown’s right eye, traveled through his face, exited his jaw and re-entered his collarbone. The last two shots in the head would have stopped him in his tracks and were likely the last fired.

    Mr. Brown, he said, would not have survived the shooting even if he had been taken to a hospital right away. The autopsy indicated that he was otherwise healthy.

    Dr. Baden said it was unusual for the federal government to conduct a third autopsy, but dueling examinations often occur when there is so much distrust of the authorities. The county of St. Louis has conducted an autopsy, and the results have not yet been released.

    He stressed that his examination was not to determine whether the shooting was justified.

    “In my capacity as the forensic examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, ‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times,’ ” said Dr. Baden, who retired from the state police in 2011. “Right now there is too little information to forensically reconstruct the shooting.”

    No matter what conclusions can be drawn from Dr. Baden’s work, Mr. Brown’s death remains marked by shifting and contradictory accounts more than a week after it occurred. The shooting is under investigation by St. Louis County and by the F.B.I., working with the Justice Department’s civil rights division and the office of Attorney General Holder.

    According to what has emerged so far, on Saturday, Aug. 9, Mr. Brown, along with a companion, Dorian Johnson, was walking in the middle of Canfield Drive, a fistful of cigarillos in Mr. Brown’s hand, police say, which a videotape shows he stole [robbed] from a liquor store on West Florissant Ave.

    At 12:01 p.m., they were stopped by Darren Wilson, a police officer, who ordered them off the road and onto the sidewalk, Mr. Johnson, who is 22, later said.

    The police have said that what happened next was a physical struggle between Mr. Brown and Officer Wilson that left the officer with a swollen face. Mr. Johnson and others have said that it was a case of racial profiling and police aggression from a white officer toward a black man. Within minutes, Mr. Brown, who was unarmed, was dead of gunshot wounds.

    The sequence of events provided by law enforcement officials places Mr. Brown and Mr. Johnson at Ferguson Market and Liquors, a store several blocks away on West Florissant Ave., at about 11:50 a.m. After leaving the store with the cigarillos, the two walked north on West Florissant, a busy commercial thoroughfare, toward Canfield Drive, a clerk reported to the police.

    Mr. Brown was a big man at 6-foot-4 and 292 pounds, though his family and friends described him as quiet and shy, a homebody who lived with his grandmother.

    It is about a 10-minute walk from Ferguson Market to the spot where Officer Wilson, 28, with six years’ experience, approached Mr. Brown and Mr. Johnson.

    The police tell of an officer who was enforcing the minor violation of jaywalking [and blocking traffic], as Mr. Brown and Mr. Johnson ignored the sidewalk and strolled down the middle of the road instead.

  • The morning after the shooting, Chief Jon Belmar of the St. Louis County police said that Officer Wilson was leaving his police car when Mr. Brown “allegedly pushed the police officer back into the car,” where he “physically assaulted the police officer.”

    “Within the police car there was a struggle over the officer’s weapon,” Chief Belmar said. “There was at least one shot fired in the car.” At that point, the police said, Officer Wilson left his vehicle and fatally shot Mr. Brown. “More than a few” shell casings were recovered from the scene.

    Mr. Johnson, who declined to be interviewed, has described the events differently in television interviews. While he and Mr. Brown walked, he said, Officer Wilson stopped his vehicle and told them to get on the sidewalk. When they refused, Officer Wilson slammed on his brakes and drove in reverse to get closer.

    When the officer opened his door, it hit Mr. Brown. With his left hand, Officer Wilson reached out and grabbed Mr. Brown by the neck, Mr. Johnson said.

    “It’s like tug-of-war,” Mr. Johnson said. “He’s trying to pull him in. He’s pulling away, that’s when I heard, ‘I’m gonna shoot you.’ ”

    A witness, Tiffany Mitchell, said in an interview with MSNBC that she heard tires squeal, then saw Mr. Brown and Officer Wilson “wrestling” through the open car window. A shot went off from within the car, Mr. Johnson said, and the two began to run away from the officer.

    According to Ms. Mitchell, “The officer gets out of his vehicle,” she said, pursuing Mr. Brown, then continued to shoot.

    Mr. Johnson said that he hid behind a parked car and that Mr. Brown was struck by a bullet in his back as he ran away, an account that Dr. Baden’s autopsy appears to contradict.

    “Michael’s body jerks as if he was hit,” Ms. Mitchell said, “and then he put his hands up.” Mr. Brown turned, Mr. Johnson said, raised his hands, and said, “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!”

    Officer Wilson continued to fire and Mr. Brown crumpled to the ground, Mr. Johnson said. Within seconds, confusion and horror swept through Canfield Drive. On that Saturday afternoon, dozens of neighbors were at home and rushed out of their apartments when they heard gunshots.

    One person who claimed to witness the shooting began posting frantic messages on Twitter, written hastily with shorthand and grammatical errors, only two minutes after Officer Wilson approached Mr. Brown. At 12:03 p.m., the person, identified as @TheePharoah, a St. Louis-area rapper, wrote on Twitter that he had just seen someone die.

    That same minute, he wrote, “Im about to hyperventilate.”

    At 12:23 p.m., he wrote, “dude was running and the cops just saw him. I saw him die bruh.”

    A 10-minute video posted on YouTube appeared to be taken on a cellphone by someone who identified himself as a neighbor. The video, which has collected more than 225,000 views, captures Mr. Brown’s body, the yellow police tape that marked off the crime scene and the residents standing behind it.

    “They shot that boy ’cause they wanted to,” said one woman who can be heard on the video.

    “They said he had his hands up and everything,” said the man taking the video, speaking to a neighbor.

    Mr. Brown’s body remained in the street for several hours, a delay that Chief Jackson said last week made him “uncomfortable.” Antonio French, a St. Louis alderman who has been active in this case, said on ABC on Sunday that the body had remained in the street for nearly five hours.

    At one point, a woman can be heard shouting, “Where is the ambulance? Where is the ambulance?” The man taking the video, who remained off-camera, said, “God rest his soul. He’s gone.”
