Police Prepare for Grand Jury Decision in Ferguson

David A. Lieb and Jim Salter, Yahoo! News, October 24, 2014

Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights and stocking up on riot gear to prepare for a grand jury’s decision about whether to charge a white police officer who fatally shot a black 18-year-old in suburban St. Louis.

The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial for the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.

Many protesters want Wilson indicted for murder. Grand jury proceedings are secret, but legal analysts say recently leaked information about Wilson’s testimony to investigators may be an attempt to prepare the public for the possibility that he might not be charged.

The decision could be made public within the next month.

In the meantime, law officers have adjusted their tactics to interact more peacefully with protesters while also honing their procedures for quick, widespread arrests. They plan to have a large contingent of officers at the ready, but have been meeting with clergy, community leaders and students in hopes of building relationships that could ease tensions on the streets.

Law enforcement officers expect to receive at least a day’s notice before a grand jury announcement. That should provide time for them to execute security plans but may also allow demonstrators to prepare.

Amnesty International on Thursday released a report documenting what it described as human rights abuses by police during the protests following Brown’s death. The report accuses police of violating citizens’ rights by intimidating protesters using riot gear, aiming high-powered weapons at people, using tear gas, firing rubber bullets and flash-bangs, and setting curfews.

After the initial clashes with protesters, the state Highway Patrol purchased more shields and equipment for its officers. St. Louis city police recently spent $325,000 upgrading helmets, sticks and other “civil disobedience equipment,” said Police Chief Sam Dotson.

More than 350 St. Louis officers now have been trained in civil disobedience tactics. St. Louis County police and state troopers also have undergone training, focused largely on ensuring they understand protesters’ constitutional rights.

    Dear Ferguson Police:

      Hey Rand- Where may I stick my ballot? (you curly-haired so and so)

    • Human-Stupidity.com

      They will understand why Darren Wilson will not be charged. Witnesses risked their lives to state that the gentle giant attacked Wilson with 3 deadly weapons (2 fists and one officer’s gun). They also will understand the profound implications of the lab analyses, the analyses of the gun shot wounds and the splatter analyses. They will peacefully demonstrate their support for Darren Wilson’s professionality. They will offer voluntary work to make amends, to fix up some of the damage that was done by mislead demonstrators.

  • Luca

    Hope they bought a few extra fire hoses and German Shepherds.

    • phillyguy

      if I were the governor of Missouri right before the decision is made and officer Wilson is found innocent, I will have the whole st. Louis area patrolled by the National Guard ,forget the st. Louis police and the state police. Let the army handle this , because it’s going to be a major disaster with the rioting Negros, let the army start pouring grapeshot into the crowd and take them all down.

    • phillyguy

      Bring in the National Guard because the Negroes and some white libatards will try to burn the city of st. Louis down

      • Uncle_Dan

        And which side do you think the National Guard will be on??

        • Any Communist in a uniform is a very identifiable target. They need to think about that.

        • phillyguy

          I am sure the good ol boys in the Missouri National Guard are not sympathetic to the black cause.

          • Uncle_Dan

            They can be “federalized.” Remember Little Rock, 1957?

          • benvad

            There is no end to the stupidity a compassionate conservative can cause, isn’t there?

        Please someone form a militia to protect the AB Brewery!!!
        BTW is anyone familiar with Kansas City Mo? Is it a more desirable place to live that St. Louis?

        • awb

          IMO, No.

        • A-B has its own police force.

          And I doubt that the undertow will target it even if they weren’t met with resistance. Even people as dumb as those in the undertow know that one of their mahogany mobs trying to take on A-B would be as futile as even the best boxer in history at the peak of his abilities picking a fight with an average 800 pound silverback gorilla.

          Interestingly, Emerson Electric is based in Ferguson, its campus is visible from the Fergaza Strip itself, and so its execs have been doing the pandering bit in the news over the last few months. My big problem with Emerson came from last year, when its CEO was one of many signatories on a letter to Boehner and Pelosi to pass “comprehensive immigration reform.” With what little time I can devote to it, I’m still trying to fish for personal info on Emerson’s CEO, last name Farr, to see what I can do to ruin his social life.

          Kansas City’s undertow problems are just about the same as St. Louis, but the white people are generally more clueless.

          • mikekingjr

            I owns da Yolo botikes. Be protekin it wif my sammiches. Doan be messin’ roun chere, gots it?

        • Kansas City, MO was 54.9% non-Hispanic white and 29.9% black during the 2010 federal census. The corresponding numbers for the whole county of St. Louis, MO were 68.9% and 23.3%, respectively. The city of St. Louis itself was 43.2% and 49.9% (Wikipedia).

          Both places thus certainly have areas where the black undertow is real and growing.

          • mikekingjr

            Veritable garden spots for liberals to move into. May I borrow your bulldozer to help them on their way, Mr. Scott?

      • benvad

        Prepare to defend the city as if this is an insurgency. It’s high time the Bantus learn where the boundaries are and what not to cross.

        Punish them extremely hard and place that rodent spike lee under arrest for racial hatred and incitement to cause a riot.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      I will gladly volunteer my pet Dobermann Pincher.

      • Cid Campeador

        That would be blatant cruelty to animals unless of course one could form a squad of 500 Dobies. They DO have some awesome teeth,

        • Samuel Hathaway

          I don’t have a Dobermann actually, but I do admire their use in police work over in Germany. We need to take a lesson from the Germans in how they use Dobermanns. Those who have Dobermanns report they are great pets with immediate family but are suspicious of outsiders unless the family member is accepting of the visitor.

          • mikekingjr

            Dingoes, Chows, and Bull Terriers are much the same. Never met one who did not like me immediately. Never be afraid of them. I think they do not respect you if you are afraid. Only time a large dog ever nipped at me, I punched it as hard as I could right in the face. Knocked it ass over teakettle. It was my friend thereafter.

    “Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights…”

    These would be my ‘constitutional rights’ (cop or no cop):
    1.) I see you carrying a weapon and about to brandish against me.
    2.) Bang — you’re dead.

    Next case…

      OUTSTANDING!! Actually, they are my God-given rights-Constitution or not.

The report accuses police of violating citizens’ rights by intimidating protesters using riot gear, aiming high-powered weapons at people, using tear gas, firing rubber bullets and flash-bangs, and setting curfews.

    Amnesty International has not yet released a report documenting the human rights abuses by rioters, including one murder, a Reginald Denny style incident that almost happened, and damage to businesses.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Nor has Amnesty mentioned the looting that the Ferguson Police refused to stop for fear of being charged with brutality.

        it is a violation of human rights, and cruel unusual punishment for law abiding citizens, if police allows looting, violence, and arson. Police should be charged with not collusion in crime and not helping people in distress

  • propagandaoftruth

    Many protesters want Wilson indicted for murder.

    Whew! What a relief to know the good citizens of St. Louis are safe and secure, seeing as the police have been “specially trained” to handle the rioters. I was worried there for a minute. /sarc/

        Well, my younger brother owns an older AR-15 which has Mattel stamped on the plastic parts. Fisher- Price made some fairly hefty hammers for their little workbenches as I seem to recall from my childhood. Just ask either of my big brothers.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      You have to wonder if any whites have demanded increased police patrols in their areas when the rioting and looting begins. This is a legitimate issue. They are law abiding citizens who pay the taxes and suffer the crime — they should DEMAND special patrols in white areas.

    • mikekingjr

      What constitutional rights?

  • The whole Mike Brown affair has been a conspiracy from the beginning. The failure to indict Wilson is part of a well-timed plan to get a massive black voter turnout in a couple of weeks. The power elites have made Brown a martyr for a purpose–that purpose being giving Democrats greater control over the government.

    It’s going to work, too. Obama is going to stick his ugly face into the mix after Wilson is determined to have acted justifiably. The message? Don’t get mad, get even by turning out every black in America to vote Democrat.

    To us, blacks defending Mike Brown makes them look stupid. Well, the white and Jewish elites have fed them the message that Brown is a martyr. So why wouldn’t they believe it and act accordingly, including turning out the vote to keep DEMs in charge.

    • connorhus

      Those tactics never work for them in the off election years though really. Not enough fraud to go around with the minority vote drive. On Presidential years it seems to be working for them though.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      However, on the flip side, the white vote may be inspired to vote with a vengeance like never before. Whites on the perimeter of the Ferguson area need to be assured that their right to vote on Nov. 4 is not compromised by black-panther style bullies who chased away white voters in Philadelphia years ago.

      White voters, crush the polls with a vengeance, decimate and ground the Democratic Party into the dust.

      • phillyguy

        Never happend, I was a kid back then and saw it all 50 yrs. Ago, not one single negro ever rioted in a white neighborhood, all our fathers, most veterans of World War 2, stood right up to the negros and belive me, they were scared to come face to face with us in our territory, they just bullied black voters in black wards.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          I was referring to the Black Panther case of 2008 when the black panthers threatened white voters somewhere in Phila. this was the case I believe that Atty. General Holder refused to prosecute as a civili rights violation.

    • Reverend Bacon

      You may be right that leaking the no-bill action by the grand jury will cause big black turnout. I believe that a full-on riot, especially if other cities rioted also, would be a giant wakeup call and cause big white turnout. If both are correct, the delayed announcement until post-election is the worst possible outcome: the leaking but no riots. I think it’s exactly what Obama wants, whether or not he got lucky or had Holder orchestrate it.

      • archer

        For my 2 cents, I think the primary concern was to let the potential rioters down easy with leaking some info on what happened. The fear of mass riots and hysteria was and is very real, once it started it would be almost impossible to stop.

        • The hope is probably that the more thoughtful black residents in Ferguson will reconsider their anti-police hostility, rather than going instantly into full freak-out overdrive when the grand jury refuses to indict.

          • mikekingjr

            And hopefully influence their less thoughtful black neighbors.

      • It could very well have happened that way. Imagine the DoJ providing Ferguson some extra law-enforcement grant money if the grand jury decision is postponed until after the election.

    • Sick of it

      The black information network does not include much of the information we see by reading various news stories, eyewitness accounts, etc. It’s hearsay passed around the black community rather than based on facts or anything else resembling reality.

  • Amused

    Wonder if THIS time the…protestors…will strike outside of ‘tha hood’ and bring their nonsense into YT’s neighborhoods, as they have been talking about for a while. Then they might find out why Ø’zero has been the ‘salesman of the decade’ for a particular industry.

    • We have several tons of flechettes for the coilgun in the basement, enough dry food for the three of us for a year, and enough potable water for three months. I could put the Koniggratzer Matsch on and we would have a fine time.

      • Cid Campeador

        As an NRA member I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know what a “Coilgun”is. “Flechettes” would seen to describe “little arrows”. How am I doing so far?

        • A coilgun uses electromagnetic induction to propel a projectile. I am permanently disallowed firearms Since this is not a firearm, I can have it, and since it is not a firearm, this one is also not a machinegun. Military surplus steel flechettes from “beehive” cannon rounds are ideal.

          The real problem with building one of these is relaxation of the field inside the projectiles. I started designing it while I was still on federal probation, but only made it after my paper was finished.

      • Adolf Verloc

        It would be great if you can safely post a picture of the coilgun one of these days, Michael. I’m really curious to see how it looks.

  • I suspect that $325,000 would buy a lot of centerfire rifle ammo, which would help if the jack-wipe cops there had the stones to use it.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      I’m all for spending $325,000 of taxpayer $$$ for the Ferguson police dept. and other police coming in to assist from other police depts. This is wise govt. expenditures at a time like this to keep primitive, racial black savages in their place. If taxpayer have to pony up $325,000 I hope the police, without apology, put it to good use if necessary. I’d like to see the taxpayer get his moneys worth for a change.

  • Diversity Fatigue

    Instead of fondling and cooing blacks why not just announce that whatever the decision may be no rioting will be allowed. Then back it up with brute force if necessary.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    Ferguson, MO police don’t need riot gear: They just need to be able to use deadly force to protect lives and property, so they should fire indiscriminately into the black rabble and try to get really lucky…

    • A Freespeechzone

      When the police stand around and watch the natives riot, loot and burn, I’d love to see the owners of these businesses invoke self-defense and cull the herd—legally.

      Legally kill a few of them in the act of illegal activity, I bet they will rethink their actions–or be killed off.

      No apologies.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        The same thought has occurred to me as well, but I would want to do it as surreptitiously as possible: It would not be good idea to become the “poster child” for “wanton, white-on-black murder.”

        The Corrupt Leftist Media would make that the lead story for weeks, and even people in Bora-Bora and Outer Mongolia would read about it, even as the Corrupt Leftist Media have intentionally “spiked” the 100,000 black-on-white murders which have occurred in the U.S., alone, since the mid-1960s…

        • ghettovalley

          I would be scared if forced to use a firearm against a black or brown home invader. Especially after they dug up my friendly cheerful internet commentary.

        • katzkiner

          Earl, there was a report done by an Austrialian in 1992 that tracked 240,000 Whites murdered by blacks in the USA between 1955 and 1992. It was published in the Sydney Times. No US paper would touch it. His name was Sheenan and the report was still available online last year. The US government ultimately banned him access to crime stats when his report came out.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Thanks, brother. I heard about that news article, but my recollection was that over 100,000 whites had been murdered by black savages, not the number you quote. (The author may have included a lot of tangential categories like Negligent Manslaughter or Non-Negligent Manslaughter to arrive at their numbers.)

            I will pursue this, because I have read about it for years…

        • mikekingjr

          Snipers are the answer. No muss, no fuss. They all shot each other.

    • Who Me?

      And you know, if they do that, some of the rabble will shoot their own children, then say they were killed by the “terribul, rayciss white po-leeese man”. The city would be paying through the eyeballs till hell freezes over.

  • Caucasoid88

    I would pray for total destruction after the acquittal so the world sees what we do. But I suppose our biggest enemy, the white liberal, will only believe they’re acting out frustrations over our oppressive, unjust, racist country.

  • dave

    Lots of hungry dogs that like dark meat and high pressure hoses would be a good start.

  • John

    Ideally, what would happen is this…. The grand jury would release its findings and no charges would be leveled (rightly so) against Officer Wilson. If this were timed to be done about a week before the November elections, the ensuing riots would provoke a reaction in those of the white electorate that hasn’t awakened to what’s going on in this country and they would end up voting accordingly where possible. Give the Africans enough rope, and they’ll end up hanging themselves. They’re too stupid to avoid any other fate.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    Okay, Ferguson Negroes… There will be no WIC, Food Stamp, Welfare checks, or home heating assistance this fall or winter due to the heroic Ferguson police dept. having to spend $325,000 in riot gear to protect themselves, and YOU, from the lurking riots, burning and pillaging that puts everyone at risk. It is high time to you all understood that you have to whistle-up and pay your FAIR SHARE of what it takes to provide police services to your community to keep intact what little is left that also stands to be destroyed by the shock troops of Michael Brown.

      Doubt they’re gonna use EBT cards to make a donation to the Police.

  • M&S

    How about high definition video cameras on masts, gunfire locators (Boomerang etc.) and posted faces of those already arrested.
    The inevitability of punishment and public condemnation for CNN reported news footage has nothing to do with what you do in the middle of the chaos.
    It has everything to do with what happens the morning after when cops start issuing no-knock SWAT warrants on the perpetrators.
    We could easily kill the black rioters ten times over. But we must -convince- (and repudiate) the White Liberal Left and their Jew backers so that EVERYTIME they choose to endorse black violence we can point out what fools they were ‘the last time’.
    Fight smart, not hard, and realize that Ferguson is just the first in a long line of battles which are going to get worse and worse as this nation descends into anarchy.

  • MooTieFighter

    White people, Leave. This will be no different than letting a million mad monkeys loose. Don’t try to use evidence or logic, they will not accept it. Just get the hel# away from them. Their intellectual insight is not at the level of understanding what is happening. They are simply thinking, “white people bad”, “get free stuff”. I want to be a perpetual victim so I can survive in this country.

  • Hubert Whitey Whitney

    I believe it would be grave error to intervene and stop these individuals from venting and acting upon their thoughts, however misguided. That is, I believe the police should stand down and maybe not even respond to any requests for assistance. Why? I think it is very important for the world to see what we are dealing with as a nation. I believe the world needs to see the all that will erupt. Only then where there be change. Bernie Sanders appeared on the O’Reilly Factor the other night and openly called blacks “socially paranoid” and that as community and culture will accept nothing less than a conviction of Officer Wilson (Let’s not kid ourselves, preferably a death sentence handed down by a newly created “community court”). Paranoia is a mental disorder outlined in the DSMIV. The public and the media is finally starting to wake up. Bernie Sanders, although he appears on Fox News, is a liberal in my opinion. If you want real change in this country (which I do), do not stand in the way of the “paranoid”. Let them burn St. Louis and whatever other area to the ground. Film, document it and run it on a loop. The loss of credibility among those can reason and are logical will drive change. It is my opinion you are never going to convince black leadership of anything other than victimhood for their people. O’Reilly and Sanders said it best with, “There could be a video tape supporting Wilson and they wouldn’t believe it”. O’Reilly went further with, “They simply have too much invested.” (paraphrasing). It is my opinion it is time the black community get a return on their investment, with a total loss of credibility. An individual who is mentally ill with paranoia, compounded with below average intelligence, with the added absence of inhibition from alcohol or whatever other mind altering substance is a very, very dangerous individual and will do horrid things. Let him do it! Film it and run it on a loop…

    • Sick of it

      Let them burn down their own communities and then refuse to rebuild them. They will leave for HUD housing elsewhere. Problem solved.

      • Hubert Whitey Whitney

        Yes. I have never understood why anyone would want to stand in the way of those who would destroy their own communities. It would be a twofold victory. One, it would demonstrate the insanity and lack of intelligence of the perpetrators. Can you imagine the mileage one would get out the photos alone? And, two it would drive the value near zero thereby allowing the property to be purchased at “fire sale” prices (pun intended) and redirected to a better use. After the L.A. Riots, I believe most businesses did not rebuild for many years, including a grocery proving the reluctance of businesses to reinvest where there existed the potential for a reoccurrence. Just imagine if the properties would have been razed on the other hand? I would have bought every mete and bound because it would have been completely free of the bad element and in a prime location. A gated community that is a stone’s throw for USC would be worth a fortune today.

        They have HUD housing in Africa? Thought it was mostly hut housing.

    Everyone knows what NEEDS to be done. Unfortunately, political correctness has eradicated the last vestiges of backbone in this country about five decades ago.
    .
    This past week, a handful black protesters in Atlanta walked out onto a major intertate in the middle of rush hour and shut traffic down. No arrests were made. Really? Are you kidding me?
    .
    White people need to start making some decisions right now. You need to think about various scenarios and what you will do in response. Then you need to prepare. As we have found over and over again, in times of crisis, calling 911 is futile.

    I admit that this is somewhat off topic but has anyone who has seen the video by some Feminist Org. of those little beauty pageant girls using the “F bomb” that has become a topic of interest this last week?

    • Douglas Quaid

      Yes, just saw it tonight. Those were the same idiots that made the “Hey White People!” video with children used as human shields lecturing us about racism. Insufferable. The new feminist one is just as bad, the only useful function of these videos is serving as a window into liberal thought.

  • Alexandra1973

    You know, you get these Alex Jones types that harp on the police being militarized, and to an extent I agree.

    The thing is, though, if we didn’t have blacks running amok in this country, TPTB would have no good excuse for a militarized police force.

    • Sick of it

      Just look at the history of this country since integration. The police will, ultimately, only be used to put US down, not black rioters. The police work for whoever issues their paychecks, not the people who actually pay for it. Especially now that older cops are retiring.

    At the same time, blacks are preparing to commit felonies and chimpouts.

    Sir Charles Napier needs to be resurrected and used as coordinator of the defense of life and property. It worked in India, it would work here.

    I’d say the cops wasted their money. Yes, reports have been coming out that evidence overwhelmingly proves Darren Wilson’s innocence – but you don’t think that system is willing to sacrifice an innocent man (and justice) to keep the riots from coming? Then you don’t know the system. I could be wrong – I hope I am – but I don’t think so.

    That description of what Amnesty International calls “human rights abuses” are no different then what the police do at Kent State during Collegefest. Students were tear gassed and hit with rubber bullets and we were just partying, not rioting. The only property we damaged was our own; no one was looting our destroying businesses. If you ask anyone that was there, they will tell you that the only violence was caused by Blacks who were not students and more than likely were not invited.

    These so called “human rights” organizations only show up when they can paint Blacks or some other leftist sacred cow as victims.

      Sacred cows. Thought that only referred to their females.

  • Breaking news out of Ferguson, this afternoon.

    This was in the dead center of the Fergaza Strip, in the heart of handsupdontshoot country.

    Both suspect and victims are gentle giants, doubtless.

    I hope the PD takes the gloves off. Hats and bats and break some empty coconuts. They have it coming.

  • mikekingjr

    Good on that PD for preparing. A lot of the blacks there will thank them if they have any sense.

  • Texan1st

    How dare those police officers wear riot gear to a riot!!

    • Spikeygrrl

      The horror, the horror…!

      The next thing you know, they’ll be wearing white after Labor Day.

    My guess is that Wilson won’t face charges but I don’t think there will be a major riot. Probably not much more than would normally occur most weekends in any vibrant and diverse neighbourhood. I’m basing this prediction on the fact that even blacks get bored of rioting and they’ve let off some steam recently and secondly the weather. I assume blacks there are the same as here in England and are particularly averse to rain and cold. Is winter setting in in St Louis? I guess they will leave any announcement as late as possible as riots are far less likely (statistically) to occur in the winter.

    If there is no riot the liberal media will be praising the boons for their lack of violence.

    • mikekingjr

      I LIKE boons. As a descriptive term that is.

      I know those 3 legs… Isle of Man. Saw the TT races there a long time ago… THAT was racing! Brick and stone walls, telephone poles, etc… you screw up, there’s a good chance you die. Especially loved the vintage bikes. Nothing like seeing a Thruxton Bonneville go howling by…

      As to your post, yeah they don’t much like cold, snow, rain… we don’t seem to mind it, even enjoy it, but they tend to hide…
