State Of Emergency Declared In St. Louis County

Cops v. The People

Courtesy of TPM:

The order establishes that the St. Louis County police will be in charge of law enforcement in Ferguson in response to any unrest. It will work in coordination with the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the St. Louis city police. The order lasts for 30 days.

Nixon also issued an executive order activating the Missouri National Guard to assist local law enforcement.

The St. Louis County grand jury that has been investigating Brown’s shooting by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is expected to announce its decision whether to indict Wilson in the coming days.

Video has also surfaced of the great white hero, Darren Wilson, threatening another man, Mike Arman last year because he was videotaping him when Wilson arrived at his home with a summons.

As Politicususa explains…

In his interview with The Guardian, Arman points out that charges were dropped after he informed his lawyer that he had a video recording of the incident. An additional charge of keeping pit bulls outside of city regulations was also dropped after Arman confirmed that that dog was actually a bulldog and not a pit bull. The Guardian did confirm that Arman had been arrested in the past for resisting arrest.

When the magazine called the Ferguson police department to confirm whether or not Wilson was the officer seen on the tape, the department responded by saying they did not believe it was video of Wilson. However, a police incident report shows that Wilson was the officer who arrested Arman on October 28th, 2013. Per the incident report, Wilson claims he only arrested Arman only after Arman refused to cooperate and demanded that Wilson give his name for a video recording. Wilson also claims in the report that he told Arman that an audio recording would be acceptable.

However, the video clip and Arman’s statements to The Guardian tell a different story altogether. Arman claims that Wilson only told him an audio recording would have been sufficient only after he arrested him. Also, while the report that Wilson filed states that Arman had the camera directly in Wilson’s face, the clip shows that Wilson was on the other side of the front yard when Arman recorded the video.

Daily Kos has also reported that a sixth felony drug case has been dropped because Darren Wilson has refused to appear in court. Wilson sounds like a complete scumbag and a liar.

It sounds very much as if the Governor of Missouri is anticipating that there will be no indictment. If all of the evidence was presented to the GJ, I fail to see how on earth that this case would not go to trial.

Well the world is watching this one. I am very fearful for what may happen in Ferguson over the next few days.

RIP Michael Brown. You did not deserve to be shot for stealing a few cigars.

    Now the pretend military can bring out their Army surplus equipment and play soldier and mow down the protesters to protect Wilson!

    It hasn’t even been proven that Mike Brown stole any cigars, but you are right – he didn’t deserve to be shot if he had stolen the cigars. Like Governor Nixon, I anticipate the Grand Jury to not indict Wilson, who, in addition to being a murderer, is a coward and a liar. I hope that the governor and I are wrong, that Wilson will be charged, tried and convicted.
