The Ferguson police department isn't talking about investigating the murder of Michael Brown. They are following up on a shoplifting charge against the dead teenager. And the chief mentioned explicitly that the results of this robbery investigation have been turned over to the St. Louis County prosecutor's office for further action. The prosecutor is on the side of the militarized cops and their response. He thought the peaceful police response via Ron Johnson last night was an outrage and embarrassment.

Carol Schaeffer live in #Ferguson - 14 minutes in they start shooting at her and others including babies. Lots of tear gas ... people vomiting --

They keep shooting tear gas -- at the hour of 9:15, well before curfew, and at areas previously designated for press -- at 19 on Carol's stream, someone shouts, "Captain Johnson ain't runnin' nothing! He's a front!" Carol sounds like she's about to throw up.

The "Tensions Rise" livestream here is incredible from about 22 minutes in -- 33 minutes in, war happens. 1 hour 4 minutes in, Hussein is threatened by police.

"We were warned by journalists about there being white ppl who were giving kids cocktails and egging things on. One of the activists I'm here with was punched in the face by a white guy." - Yeezietaughtme

Anonymous gets shot at 16min in 3rd video -- all of which is very tense. Keep an eye out for white-masked white guy (in black shorts) talking to media from beginning of 2nd video, who seems like a phony and keeps trying to incite the crowd in 3rd video. Not that either side needs too much help. The cameraman also incites the crowd first, asking them to throw tear gas back at police. He's clearly "Anonymous" with an inflated ego and sense of importance, looking to affect history.

Same "anarchists" passing out molotovs were trying to push Anonymous' Day of Rage. Anonymous is inciting anarchy and violence within the crowd. Fuckers.

"50 years from now information will be declassified showing the Ferguson violence was started by agent provocateurs. Favorite that tweet so I can say I told you so 50 years from now." - ZellieImani

"White anarchists from Chicago are down there as plants to justify harming black people. I've seen them myself. They are based out of Wicker Park. I know who they are. Been trying to co-opt the protest from the start." - Greg Thomas

JamilahLemieux: "…there are some people who have no problem using Black bodies to further an anarchist agenda."

EncycleauxpediaBrown: "Molotov cocktails? I have never in my 38 years of life seen a black person use a Molotov cocktail. That's 1960s-70s action. Black people are armed in 2014, they'll shoot, not make Molotov cocktails. Stay woke."

"How much more will black people have to give to this country until we are seen as human beings? HOW MUCH MORE?" - Greg Thomas

White photographer: "They need to shoot some people to stop this. I hate to say it, but it's true." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwWHohUsTyQ

Monster.

Increasingly, mainly white press allowed in pen behind police. ArgusRadio's Moustafa Hussein was threatened.

Cops threaten media:

"Michael Brown's wounds are consistent with being shot while with hands up in a position of surrender -- shot from a distance, in the front.

As for the charge he reached for the officer's gun, officers wear their guns to their right for safety. Mike would have had to reach into and across the officer for his gun. Nope.

And he didn't get this far in 9 minutes in flip flops. That's a lie and y'all know it." http://pic.twitter.com/qZ6PCdB3Mz

"The police were called two minutes before the dispatch calls them? Swag. Because all of that happened in a minute? Crime, dispatch, officer arrival and report? I just wanna know how the police report was taken before the call was made. Look at this police report. Look at the times...math off as hell." http://twitpic.com/eaaxwm

Some are saying that he seems to be paying for his stuff in the "robbery" video. I haven't shared that because I don't see him reaching into his pocket. I think you can read a lot of different things into that video, like that the clerk may have said something to agitate him. We've never gotten any explanation on what exactly is happening in that video, beyond Brown's intimidating body language with the small clerk.

Releasing the robbery video at all was character assassination, which worked with the white crowd it was intended for. All mainstream sources, if discussing the case, play the "robbery" video once every three hours. Avoid them!

Mainstream news supports the police and reports all of their lies -- some of which then get retracted if there's enough actual video evidence from people on the ground.

We've learned that lying is the usual state of play for the Ferguson cops. Al Jazeera even got cheeky with it - as the chief said they were not using tear gas on reporters, they played video alongside it of when police shot tear gas directly at them (and then dismantled their video equipment as they ran).

At any rate, the police timeline for the "robbery" makes no sense. The robbery wouldn't have been called in and investigated and reported on in the space of one minute, two minutes before it occurred. And the two men didn't then walk across the entire neighborhood in 9 minutes in flip flops. That's a lie, period. http://pic.twitter.com/qZ6PCdB3Mz

"Racism will NEVER go away. It's in the DNA of this country. It's in the peptide chain of this nation's foundation.

Problem with the US is that they ended slavery but didn't change the thought process behind it.

America has never squared away with slavery. Never made an honest effort to make things right.

They've put a band aid on a break and the inside never healed. And some 150 years later, here we are.

Truth is, racism will NEVER go away, because it was NEVER acknowledged as wrong and the mindset was never rehabilitated.

See, the problem is that those who enslaved feel as though because they didn't PERSONALLY enslave you/hate your people, they're not racist.

And when I say America didn't square black folk away at emancipation, I mean they did not SYSTEMICALLY acknowledge how wrong they were.

Not once has America ever looked ITSELF in the eye as the infantile nation it was at the time and said, 'We gotta fix this for our progeny.'

They instead found ways to continue to oppress and repress those who had LIMITED resources and were SEVERELY disenfranchised from their home.

The racism then began to be built into law and into industry and into education and into entitlement programs.

Think of how this occurred. To make a slave you have to break a slave. Think of the slave as a dog. You have to train your dog right?

So we don't want the dog to think they're a human. Therefore, we don't let the dog eat at our table, eat our food, sit on our sofa or bed.

If we train this dog well enough he will know his place. He won't try to sit at the table or on the bed or on the sofa.

So you have housebroken your dog. This makes the master happy. So when the dog does what the master wants, we reward the dog.

But, we just give them a treat to endear them to us, to make them loyal, to make them comply.

Master has been feeding us a diet of treats and never a full meal. And master sees NOTHING wrong with this because, we are dogs to them.

They want us as loyal as possible with as little resistance as possible. And for the most part we have conceded.

So when you think about why we are here today, having to do this work in Ferguson, keep these things in mind.

Think about it. The dog is loyal to its master. Serves as an alarm, warns of danger, sits at his feet when he's sad, yet he's still a dog.

Will still be treated as a dog.

Stay woke."

White guy causing trouble

Lot of talk this morning -- after it being on my mind last night -- about removing the white anarchists as much as possible. Steps were taken.

While some arrested for stealing are from #Ferguson, a large number have addresses listed in Illinois or in Texas. http://wapo.st/1pXm6zH

"We were able to keep the peace at the front line, even after some very tense moments. But back at Canfield, the fighters are still fighting. ... The guys police are battling right now on Canfield are the fighters I described earlier. Reporters, you don't want to be over there now."

FOX2 removed while live on air, Argus Radio removed while live on air. No one near the scene now. Press in cage miles away. New "protocols" to be imposed on press tomorrow.

Barack Obama distanced himself from a decision to deploy Missouri national guard troops to deal with continued unrest in Ferguson on Monday, dispatching attorney general Eric Holder to monitor events and saying he would be watching whether troops are “helping or hindering the situation”.

"Police used a new tactic tonight. They would move in and extract the 1 or 2 individuals that were causing the problem. Much better than gas." - Antonio French

Yeah? So how come the cops were still throwing about a hundred cans of gas?

31 arrested in Ferguson tonight including people from New York and California, says Capt. Ron Johnson.

Antonio French just retweeted "There are photographs of the Chicago boys gloating while Canfield kids mix Molotov cocktails if local eyewitnesses aren't enough."

"Thankfully, tonight police did not overreact when someone threw water bottles at them." - Antonio French, siding way too much with the police these days.

Easy when you're not the one getting shot at.

Oh god, Anonymous twitter accounts are going after Antonio French now for going after white anarchists. (Including their people.)

FOX2 was arrested live on camera today. CNN was tear gassed, as was anyone on the ground for MSNBC. Argus Radio was shut down live on camera today, and an officer threatened to shoot him yesterday. KMOV channel 4 called it a night when tear gas was fired at them directly and a cop's sniper rifle laser sight aimed right at them. Photographers were arrested. Huffington Post and other reporters have been arrested and assaulted. Press have been corralled into a small "first amendment zone" miles away from the action, night after night, so they don't see anything. They are threatened with arrest or being shot if they step outside their cage. Yesterday tear gas was shot by cops directly into the press zone. Vice's Tim Pool was shot in the leg with a rubber bullet, then shot at with real bullets. A cop later tore his press credentials off, saying anyone could have those. He nearly wasn't allowed to continue, but the women with him had better credentials or equipment. Non-white reporters have increasingly not been allowed in the press zone. The press zone was shut down early tonight, imposing a complete media blackout. Any reporters on the scene seem to eventually have to run back to the press zone when they're shot at. Livestreamer Carol Schaeffer was shot at yesterday, and tear gassed to the point of vomiting. Amnesty International observers were forced to leave at gunpoint today. Jacqueline Lee of the Belleville News-Democrat newspaper, photographer @zianizami and another journalist were shot at with tear gas, at least 3 canisters, which hit them in the leg and arm.
