More Than 1,000 Protesters Stage Early-Morning March Through St. Louis

Lydia Warren, Daily Mail (London), October 13, 2014

More than a thousand protesters marched through the streets of St Louis this morning, marking the fourth day of rallies against police violence in the area.

On Sunday, at least 17 protesters were arrested by police in riot gear for refusing to disperse during a spontaneous sit-in at a convenience store. Officers said protesters threw rocks, while cops responded with pepper spray, witnesses said.

Just hours later, on Monday morning, hundreds of protesters descended on Saint Louis University campus and announced they were there to stay.

The protesters are calling for the arrest of a white police officer, Darren Wilson, who shot dead an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, in August. Last week, another black teenager, Vonderrit Myers Jr., also died at the hands of a white police officer–further inflaming tensions.

This morning’s march on the university campus–which was far larger than previous overnight marches in Ferguson–was the first of what was expected to be a series of acts of civil disobedience around the region on Monday, the New York Times reported.

As they walked through the streets, they shouted: ‘Indict, convict, put the killer cops in jail, the whole damn system is guilty as hell.’

Vonderrit Myers Sr., whose son was shot dead in Shaw last Wednesday, told the crowd, ‘You make my heart easier,’ before he held a four-minute moment of silence.

Last Wednesday, an off-duty white officer working for a security firm shot dead 18-year-old Vonderrit Myers Jr. in the Shaw neighborhood in what police described as a firefight.

{snip}

The mother of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old shot dead onAugust 9 by white officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, walked at thefront of a rally on Saturday evening in the suburb of Ferguson.

Lesley McSpadden, who has criticized Ferguson police, has only rarely participated in protests. She eventually left the group, which grew to over 1,000 people and moved on to Ferguson police headquarters.

At the culmination of the Ferguson march on Saturday night, protesters shouted insults at a line of police in helmets and shields, with some demonstrators wearing bandanas or scarves over their faces. But there were no arrests or violence, a police spokesman said.

    It’s not like they had to get up and go to work on Monday morning.

    • Even the Afritards that pretend to work, have cushy, faux government jobs, and those oxygen-wasters didn’t have to work today, as Columbus Day is a federal holiday. Even the banks aren’t open.

        “faux government jobs”

        Scary thing is… they’re probably all TSA agents…you know.. our first line of defense against Ebola…

      Led by socialists from academia, government, the grievance industry, and the hood. Racial jihad is their meal ticket.

  • DaveMed

    Urban-Americans and their European-American sycophants actually look forward to these incidents. Now, they can at least pretend that they’re doing something meaningful with their lives.

  • connorhus

    If they indict Wilson every White cop in the Metro area should walk off the job. Let them fend for themselves. They won’t do it of course too much debt slavery among other reasons but it would make an impression.

    • propagandaoftruth

      It’s kind of turning into the tire fire race riot. Could smolder for years.

      • me

        Negroes have been ‘rioting’ ever since the post-Antebellum years. Time to repatriate them back to Africa.

        • KyraNelson

          Um, wasn’t Liberia supposed to be the destination of the repatriation?? How ironic.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Liberia is what a governmental entity looks like when there are no whites running it: Sort of like Detroit, or Haiti, or Newark, or East St. Louis, or any other sub-Saharn African cesspool…

          • Liberia to even the blacks sounded like a great idea. Till they got there. Then the lighter skins were ruling the darker skins, Slave trade shortly began and after a few revolts, and many of them killing each other things looked as if they started to do well for them selves, , yes they became lave traders of their own people, this did not stop till 1980. I question if many countries in Africa still do so.
            Funny that they became the very thing they love to scream and hate about.

        • Earl P. Holt III

          Better yet, how about HALF-WAY BACK…?

        • Dale McNamee

          But, Africa DOESN’T WANT THEM !

          I have African friends, they DESPISE the AMERICAN BLACKS,here & over there !

          They also don’t let their kids mix with the “mongrels”…

    • A Freespeechzone

      It’s been over 2 months—IF there was strong evidence that Darren Wilson acted improperly, there would have been an indictment in short order.

      You can bet that the pressure on the Grand Jury from the DOJ and others is beyond what we can imagine; yet there is likely no evidence.

      Let the rioters and looters have loose–God help them if they work their way outside their neighborhoods; they will learn the concept of lethal SelfDefense.

      Remember that per the SCOUS in 2005, LE has no obligation to protect you or your family.

      • OS-Q

        They have a few witnesses, including two white contractors, backing the official narrative of St. Cigar’s martyrdom. A trial is probably on hold until after the elections.

      • Julius Caesar

        That was Warren vs. District of Columbia, was it not?

        • dmxinc

          Gruesome crime.

          Of course, our government employees are never held responsible.

    • Stan D Mute

      Cops are in demand in a lot of areas. If they didn’t mind moving, they could probably get a new job as long as they kept their certification.

    • Ed

      Highly unlikely they indict my guess is that those in the know realize that. They are putting assets in place and going over strategy. Once they’re confident they’ll make the grand jury’s decision official.

    • That would be so dam Ideal. I would love to see this happen, all the police from city police, just walk off the job, county and state refuses to go in with out the National Guard support at least. This place is (has) begun to turn into something similar to one of my favorite 80’s movies by the name of escape NY. Ths would be great reality T.V to say the least raw and would be a great way to explore drone t.v as well as a social study. Im all for the police leaving as well quarantine these people who prefer lawless government. Some one call a producer and Hollywood.

  • “Moral Monday.” Please, don’t ever put “moral” and the most violent race of people on Earth in the same sentence. Just last night, there was a triple shooting involving three women as vics, one of them pregnant, in Fox Park. Usual suspects, of course.

    In other developments, this milieu showed off last night big time in the St. Louis neighborhood that has lots of LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH bars and establishments. You’d think they’d avoid that because gays are their political allies, so this promises to create an interesting car wreck at the intersectionality of gay and black.

    Also, Cornell West was in Ferguson today and got arrested. I guess morality really did carry the day on Moral Monday.

  • Mason Gull

    I watched a live stream of the protests last night, and it was disappointingly uneventful compared to the previous nights. I saw only one major confrontation with the police, and the police ended up backing down. I didn’t even see anyone get maced.

    This is the highest quality stream if anyone wants to watch

    • I am watching the steam now. It appears that a group of “shoppers” are approaching a Walmart. A gibs frenzy could ensue at any moment.

      • mikekingjr

        Gibs frenzy. Brilliant!

    • Valmont

      Alternatively, you could go to Youtube to check out The Chimpout Song.

  • These losers are even more useless than the Wall Street protesters.

  • MekongDelta69

    The ‘professional protestors’ should march through the streets chanting,

    “Hey, hey, ho, ho. We don’t want no job to go to.”
    “Wadda we want?”
    Rep-ah-mah-ray-shuns
    “When do we wannit?”
    “NOW (but we’ll settle for the 15th and 30th of every month).”

  • ncpride

    How I detest those silly Whites enabling these thugs. They ‘march’ for blacks, but not in a million years will you ever see blacks ‘marching’ for White rights. EVER. Get that through your heads, nitwits. They have no compassion for you, morons and could not care less what happens to you…… you’re just useful idiots helping with your own decline. Stupid and plain dumb.

    • Douglas Quaid

      It’s a way to feel like they are crusaders for justice, they imagine that if they were alive in 1963 they would be marching with King. The Left incessantly talks about being “on the right side of history” and thus they go around emboldening savage black behavior, sexual perverts, and other malcontents by standing up for “justice” on their behalf.

      • benvad

        Thats the just of it! Very well put.

  • JP Rushton

    More white church leaders making sure their members know who they stand with.

    The church has turned its back on whites a long time ago. They are hoping their investment in the Hispanics and Blacks pay off.

  • dd121

    If they feel so put out with America, would they consider a one-way ticket to Liberia? They do speak English of sorts there.

  • Conrad

    Romans 13:4
    For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.
    The little ticker above says that cops are 21 times more likely to shoot blacks than a whites.
    The real question is – If the cops shot blacks every time that they needed to, how much would this number increase. The cops are way too hesitant.

    • thegodsofeden

      Think in exponential numbers.

  • AmericanCitizen

    If the cops want the crowds to disperse they should just throw stacks of job applications at them. The indigenous natives of the inner city think job applications are Kryptonite.

  • Luca

    Only a Liberal propaganda press can take a low IQ, violent, vulgar mob of rioting lawless thieves and looters and say they are conducting “civil disobedience”. There is nothing civil about this group.

    • Recently, one of them smashed out a window in a residential neighborhood over there, while the thugs screamed “No justice, no sleep” at the hapless residents.

      • A Freespeechzone

        Try that in the wrong neighborhood; rioters might not like the ‘justice’ meted in SelfDefense.

        • Alexandra1973

          I love this one, from right after Hurricane Katrina.

            Good find, lol…

    • Bryce Armstrong

      Really, because I’ve heard coonservatives claim that about “Dr” King for years.

    • Adolf Verloc

      I had a long session today on Talking Points Memo with supporters of these thugs. One actually told me that “civil disobedience” was supposed to be a way of protesting that would not get you arrested. That is what “civil disobedience” is all about – challenging the authorities to arrest you and being willing to face arrest.

      • Let me guess. The Talking Points Memo commentariat is the type that thinks that black mobs burning quickie marts is free speech but an AR conference taking place might as well be an invocation to genocide.

      • It’s also supposed to be about getting arrested for relatively harmless things, in order to flood local jails with people arrested for silly misdemeanors.

      • 1stworlder

        How do you disagree with them but not get banned from the site?

        • Adolf Verloc

          Comment on their Facebook page. You can get away with a lot more with leftist sites’s Facebook pages than on the sites themselves.

  • TL2014

    Actually, I agree with them on one thing. The system is guilty, a system that affords me no legal protection from the havoc created by individuals incompatible with my civilization, a system that won’t let me protect the value of my real estate, a system that dooms me to quiet taxpaying status. Yes, system is guilty as hell. I hope it can be changed somehow. Not sure how.

    • Stan D Mute

      It’s not just that it denies you the right to protect the value of your real estate, it denies you the right to *own* it at all..

      You’re a renter. Everyone is a renter. The government owns everything. Stop paying your rent and see how long it is before men with guns show up demanding money or your eviction.

      How the heck the government pulled that off mystifies me. The original land patents are meaningless. Government just nullified its promises and spit on its own “rule of law.”

      • Alexandra1973

        Agreed, if you have to pay Property tax, do you truly own your Property?

      “How’s about I hose you instead!”

      • bilderbuster

        What’s black and brown and looks good on a wet Negro?
        Why a Doberman of course!
        Water and electricity can work shockingly well together too.

        • Alexandra1973

          When I was a baby we had a German shepherd named Sandy. She used to sleep under my crib–and we lived *in* Detroit at that time. I was told she didn’t like blacks.

      • Hose and taze, then repeat

    • The cops need to wait until the weather gets a bit colder before using the fire hoses. There’s nothing like being soaked to the skin in cold weather!

      • Alexandra1973

        Hm. Maybe the grand jury’s waiting until cold weather sets in, so they’ll be hibernating instead of rioting.

    • Luca

      Tear gas and fixed bayonets always works wonders too.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Blacks are protesting for the right to loot, riot, rape, carjack, rob and assault with impunity.

    “This is what democracy looks like.”

    Democracy is mob rule, not mentioned in the Constitution and is why the Founding Fathers rejected it.

    Hence it is that democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general have been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths..

    —James Madison.

    They’re not calling for “democracy,” they’re calling for chaos, anarchy or a police state.

    The Chief of Police needs to put a stop to this and get out there and apologize…and apologize…and apologize…and apologize…

    • Stan D Mute

      Everything the Founders intended and stood for has been shredded. Property rights? Hardly. Qualified electorate? No, sub 60 IQ imbeciles are enfranchised. Right to bear arms? Only with their permission. Free speech? Not if they want to stop you. Double jeopardy? Yeah, lost that too. And on and on it goes.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Yeah, no kidding.

        Democracies self-destruct when the non-productive become a majority and vote themselves handouts from the productive minority by electing candidates that promise the most benefits.

        So, it looks like we are now the Founding Father’s worst nightmare: A Democracy…

        …For the moment.

  • Ograf

    If the government and all the PC people weren’t nuts we would squash this crap and squash it hard. I am sick of innocent people getting hurt by these blacks over some bs reason that the police are shooting these poor innocent thugs. Until people start having to pay for what they did, this will continue forever.

    • Stan D Mute

      It’s past that point of no return unfortunately. Our only chance now is an American Pinochet. We need a conservative General to stage a coup. Nothing else could save us.

      • tlk244182

        A fascist general ;- )

      • Daniel

        You’re absolutely correct. Whites should also form para-military militias at the local level to support the police and military. Welfare should be totally eliminated and a secession process for a new America should begin.

    • “Until people start having to pay for what they did…”
      –Ograf

      That is exactly why they are rioting. The Perpetually Indignant want a complete disconnect between actions and consequences, and are saying exactly that.

  • Douglas Quaid

    “You make my heart easier.”- Vonderrit Sr.

    What?

    • Vonderrit Myers Sr. had been to prison before, but I guess it never occurred to him to recount his own unpleasant experiences with and then within the legal system while giving his late son “that talk”. I doubt he gave him any lectures on the subject at all. By being so remiss in his responsibility (blacks hate the word, “responsibility”) as a parent, he helped set his kid up for the recent fall. Instead of gleefully protesting, the elder Myers ought to hang his head in shame at having failed in yet another important (?) aspect of life.

      He could have been his son’s best chance, and he quite decisevely blew it.

      .

      • me

        No kidding! ‘Daddy dearest’ was awol during his son’s formative years, and has the disgusting nerve to demand ‘sympathy’ as a ‘grieving father’. I think he’s just priming the pump for some of that ‘gibs me dat’ lawsuit against the city for his sons’ ‘wrongful death’. God, these Negroes make me sick! Not a moral bone in their bodies. Monsters….

      • Ed

        I’ve seen pics of mon and dad decked out in urban attire. Highly unlikely they were suitable role models for Vonderitt or any child.

      • Luca

        Meyers Sr. should have had the talk about how racist our legal system really is. Apparently in the US, you can be jailed for raping, murdering, assaulting, carjacking or mugging “while black.”

        Even when you have an ironclad defense like “I din do nuffins”, or “Honest officer, dats not my gun, dats my awnty’s gun”, the White justice system will still throw them poor darkies in jail.

    The Black Panther whom I was watching on a livestream last night guaranteed the death of Darren Wilson. He claims that black supremacist groups are ready and waiting to kill Darren. He then called for other “Black Action” groups to rise up and join together to kill whitey and remove the oppressive shackles that have burdened his people for thousands of years. I’m sure the beta white liberal who was filming the interview nearly shat his pants.

    • Daniel

      When whites defend themselves and Obama/Holder send in the feds to burn down any white defending themselves or their family in the upcoming St. Louis Riot…….how will you respond to the politically correct prosecutors who bow down to Obama/Holder? Those prosecutors should feel an unbearable amount of HEAT and should fear the decent citizen more than the barbarian horde. Right now……they don’t.

      • Julius Caesar

        As for your question of “How will I respond”, I’m willing to fight and die for my beliefs. So long as I live, “racism” will live on. I have no shame and no guilt when it comes to expressing my “racism”. I’ve mentioned on here in the past that I am heavily involved in my community as well as being a local politician, and I make it very clear where I stand on these issues. I am not afraid to say what needs to be said. I couldn’t care less what Obongo/Eric Hold-’em-up, or anyone else in the Politically Correct police force have to say about me. My family has my back, and I tend to see that the community as a whole appreciates the level of honesty I bring, as opposed to what they normally get from these political farces.

        • Daniel

          That’s very good. I’m just trying to bring up a certain issue that will be coming up in the near future. After St. Louis burns……..what will decent citizens do to repel the immoral prosecutors who will be abusing their power to oppress honest citizens defending themselves and their families?
          This will become a very big issue.

          • Julius Caesar

            Certainly it will be. How will the upstanding whites of good moral character react? What will they do to defend themselves? I wish I had an answer. Only time will tell.

          • Daniel

            I would like to begin a process of communicating to these prosecutors that siding with the criminal element against decent, tax paying Americans has a LIMITED future.
            They fear the criminal element and the criminal Obama regime. That equation needs to change.

    This is all planned. There is no evidence for indicting Officer Wilson. No way does it take over two months to come up with an indictment. Remember the old “ham sandwich” cliché? What they are deliberately doing, is waiting until after the mid term Congressional elections to announce that there is no evidence for indictment. The last thing Democrats want is major urban riots just before the elections. They remember their disaster in 1968, when Richard Nixon got elected by a landslide in the wake of the urban riots and the student demonstrations, on a law and order platform. The people that run our country are aging Baby Boomer radicals. They know their history well.

  • De’Ontavious Jizzaiah Jones

    This is no longer a protest against police. It is all about black power and intimidation of whites. I think this is now going to be new standard with every police or civilian shooting of a black, and may even spread into protesting any instance of trying to hold a black accountable for anything.
