Interesting sign. NO JUSTICE NO PEACE.
Tell me, where's the justice in breaking in and looting stores in Ferguson? The store owners had nothing to do whatsoever with the death of Brown yet they had to pay a price. Why? Because for the looters (criminals) this was business as usual but this time they could feel a sense of community service by attaching a "cause" to it. Many of them didn't even live in Ferguson but this golden opportunity was to good to pass up. They could rob and loot till their heart's content knowing the cops weren't going to shoot which is a departure from the normal risk involved when they break into someone's home.
Anyone think for a second these are"virgin" criminals?
If the store owner Brown strong-armed and robbed was black and he subsequently shot and killed Brown I wouldn't be writing this because no one except the immediate family would have ever heard about it.
So what happens next?
There will be a trail and if Wilson is found innocent they'll burn down the town. You know, just like the white people did after the OJ verdict.
A white man shot a black man. The circumstances don't mean a GD thing!
The streets of the central U.S. town of Ferguson, Missouri have been peaceful for a third consecutive night as tensions between police and protesters continued to subside.
The calm late Friday and early Saturday follows nearly two weeks of violence and unrest that erupted after a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black teenager.
The National Guard began pulling out of Ferguson Friday.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon ordered the removal of the National Guard, saying the situation had "greatly improved with fewer incidents of outside instigators interfering with peaceful protesters, and fewer acts of violence."
The demonstrations have centered around the street where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed on August 9. Police say Brown and officer Darren Wilson were involved in a struggle, but witnesses say the shooting was unprovoked. Wilson is on paid leave, with Brown's family and supporters calling for his arrest.
Many have complained that the police response to the protests has been heavy-handed.
More than a 150 people have been arrested in Ferguson since the protests began; most of them for failing to disperse at the request of police.
Brown's shooting has raised allegations of institutionalized racism and excessive use of force by police.
Two St. Louis area police officers have been suspended from their positions because of racially charged statements on the Internet.
One of the officers, Matthew Pappert, complained on his Facebook page the protesters "should have been put down like rabid dogs" on the first night.
A second officer, Dan Page, was relieved of his duties pending an internal review concerning a YouTube video in which he boasted about being a Jesus-loving "killer."
The incidents have highlighted the racial divide in Ferguson, a largely black town where almost all the police force and local politicians are white. Civil rights activists say Brown's death followed years of police targeting blacks.
A grand jury has begun hearing evidence in the case and will determine whether to charge officer Wilson in the teen's death. Considering the racial tensions of the case, the makeup of the grand jury - three blacks and nine whites - is being closely scrutinized.
Some community residents say they are fearful anger could explode anew if the grand jury does not return a charge against Wilson.
Brown's family and the protesters have called for the removal of prosecutor Bob McCulloch, expressing concerns he will be biased. McCulloch's father was a police officer killed in the line of duty by a black man.
Meanwhile, the federal investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
Brown's funeral is set for Monday.
