Group Proposes ‘Rules of Engagement’ for Grand Jury Announcement in Michael Brown Case

Robert Patrick, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, November 5, 2014

A coalition of roughly 50 groups concerned about issues brought to prominence by the fatal shooting of Michael Brown asked officials Wednesday to agree to “rules of engagement” for protests that will follow the grand jury decision about the shooting.

At a news conference in St. Louis, “Don’t Shoot Coalition” members said police should value safety first, and agree to a “de-militarized response” that would bar the use of armored vehicles, rubber bullets, rifles and tear gas. The group is asking for 48 hours notice of the public announcement of the decision, so that both the coalition and the public can prepare for the protests and the potential disruption to daily lives. They are also asking police to respect the safe spaces that they’re setting up in houses of worship near each anticipated area of protest activity, and ensure protesters can reach them.

Coalition co-chair Michael T. McPhearson, executive director of Veterans For Peace, said the group “must do what we can to ensure there’s not loss of life.” He said, “We want to de-escalate violence, but we do not want to de-escalate action.”

They said that had been attempting, unsuccessfully so far, to negotiate key elements with local and federal officials. And they said that they were offering training in de-escalation and for legal observers.


Coalition members said tensions were growing, fueled by three recent fatal police shootings and long-term problems that include racial profiling, a lack of diversity and accountability in law enforcement, inequality and a lack of trust in police and the judicial system. They also cited the failure of authorities to arrest Wilson and leaks of information about the investigation to the media. The group blamed police for escalating peaceful protests into violence, saying that given proper space, protesters have been self-policing.

    I support these rules of engagement 100%. The police should give the groups advanced notice so they can get organized. Then the police should stand down and let these groups take whatever actions they want. The police should be restrained from any type of normal riot control procedures. Frankly, the police should visit relatives out of state for a few weeks and let St. Louis work things out.

    It’s about time. Let’s get things started.

            Are you referring to Barbara Lerner Spectre, the one that said:

            Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we [Jews] are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multi-cultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role…

            As native-born Swedes and Norwegians are being raped by multiculturalism, all of which she approves.

No, African Americans. Whites? No, Caucasian. (See? Caucasian, but not Negro.) White boy? Fine. But don’t use the dreaded “n-word.” Unless, that is, you are, black, or, uhh, sorry, African American. Believe me, a lot of absurdity has been going on.

  • They want a 48 hour advance in order to prepare for actively rioting.

      Authorities should dump a few tons of overcooked KFC, bumwine/malt likka, newports, seized cannabis, swisher sweets, toof rottin candy, and white wimin prostitutes in a local sports stadium and let them demonstrate there. They might never leave.

    “The “Don’t Shoot Coalition” wants to prevent “loss of life.”

    What they really mean is that White cops shouldn’t shoot at black thugs trying to hurt them or any other innocent person. They of course don’t care when a black shoots a White. Should the latter happen, they’ll become hellbent in defending the black criminal and make up excuse after excuse to justify his/her murdering the innocent White.

    • Reverend Bacon

      Yes, they just want to deal themselves a few extra cards in the impending battle.

  • 1gravity

    How about negotiating a substantial reduction in the black 70% illegitimacy rate? We could set aside safe zones for that.

    • Reverend Bacon

      Legitimate or not, how about we just stop the breeding?

      • Jesse_from_Sweden

        Want to reduce black illegitimacy and reduce black crime considerably, although with a generations delay?

        Forcibly sterilize those convicted of multiple felonies….

        And we don’t need to make this racist in any way, but let that rule apply to everyone equally.
        Of course, there will be disparate impact but what can you do….

        • Reverend Bacon

          I like it, but I am not sure it’s enough. First, most of these “people” have already spawned before their first felony conviction. In fact,it’s often one of the violins that the convicted thugs and thugettes all play. Second, the overwhelming majority of such felons are males. With the promiscuity which abounds in “that” demographic, sperm donors are a dime a dozen. I doubt you could lower the birth rate by more than 5% with this as your only strategy. Remember that the welfare incentives are for the sows to calve a capella.

          It’s possible that the threat of sterilization would be a crime deterrent to those bucks that want a dozen or more offspring. It’s also possible that you’d see sperm banks crop up in the ghettos, right next to check cashing and liquor stores.

    I must be missing something here. I was under the impression Michael Brown was shot while fighting with a police officer, trying to wrest the officer’s gun away. Had Brown killed the officer — would the Liberalidiots made such a big fuss out of the issue? Of course, friends, I’m being facetious. I know damned well the Liberalidiots and the liberal controlled media would have shrugged and ignored the whole thing.

    Of course had Brown been successful and killed the officer — Brown would have been hailed as a hero like the Jasper 7 who were tried for attempted murder of a White student some years ago.

    • LHathaway

      “Had Brown killed the officer — would the Liberalidiots made such a big fuss out of the issue?”

      In their efforts to free the cop killer, yes, they might. They might turn that into a cause.

    • Juggernaut3000

      That’s not the accepted government or media narrative.

      Michael Brown was an innocent child shot down in the prime of life as he was preparing to go away to college, the first one in his fambily…er family by a racist White cop.

      That’s what’ll be in the textbooks.

  • ncpride

    They also cited the failure of authorities to arrest Wilson….

    As usual, these utter morons can’t seem to grasp the fact that we have laws and procedures, and there are NO grounds to arrest Wilson, even after having Eric ‘my people’ Holder trying his best to railroad this officer. There will be violence, no matter how hard they try to avoid it. They’re dealing with negroes here…..none of the facts matter to them.

  • Basically they’re saying that they want to assault cops, but that the police mustn’t shoot back.

    “No armored vehicles, rubber bullets, rifles and tear gas”? Well, that still clearly allows 12-gauges loaded with 00 buckshot, doesn’t it?

    It has apparently never occurred to these mental midgets. That if they could gather a “coalition” dedicated to educating their “Thug Life” culture soaked Hell Spawns. Not to commit strong arm robberies and not to assault police officers. There would be absolutely NO NEED for their idiotic “Don’t Shoot Coalition”!

    It’s really amazing, strong arm rob a store, assault a police officer, try to take the officers gun from him ( with the only reason for that being to use it on him ). Then turn that 6ft 4, 300 pound body and the ugly face attached to it around and charge the officer ( which all the evidence shows he did ) forcing him to defend himself, AND HE’S THE VICTIM?

    Only in the peanut sized brain of the Africanus Criminalus “peoples” < and their deluded White liberal enablers ) is he the good guy, and the police officer, the bad guy!

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Blacks in Ferguson are gathering exactly nothing. They have supporters with deep pockets, organizing ability and a deep hatred of White America:

      Supporters of Mike Brown are officially organized by some of the most powerful left wing interest groups in the nation.

      Along with the support of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and a mention from President Barack Obama at the United Nations during his remarks, other liberal interest groups found their way onto the Ferguson issue, including: national LGBT organizations, climate environmentalists, amnesty groups, pro-Palestinian organizations, Christian social justice groups, and Planned Parenthood.

      Abortion rights activist Cecile Richards posted on her Facebook page on August 14 an illustration stating, “You deserve to parent your child without fear that he or she will be hurt or killed. Freedom from violence is Reproductive Justice.”

      One young woman explained her small cardboard climate sign, saying she is traveling “the world to collect stories from people she meets about water and climate change, starting three weeks during the climate march in New York City and now here. “

      As you can see, according to some of these lefties, the Michael Brown shooting can be blamed on global warming.

    • “……if they could gather a “coalition” dedicated to educating their “Thug Life” culture soaked Hell Spawns…” I believe that’s a pipe dream—-most of them cannot be educated beyond 5th grade level. Trying to educate them when they don’t have brain power to be educated is an exercise in futility. We’ve seen that exercise in action for over 60 years. They can’t be educated and we’re wasting trillions of taxpayer $$ trying to do that. They could be trained to do unskilled tasks, but they won’t do that sort of work.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Michael Brown died while spreading the word of Jesus.

    The Chief of Police apologized but that apparently was not enough.

    Maybe if the racist Quickie-Mart clerk apologized for accusing innocent Michael Brown of thievery that would be enough to placate the rioters.

    • Ella

      Jesus would not have stolen cigars or shoved a clerk into the counter. Jesus would submit to the police for questioning instead of resisting arrest. Human sin has its consequences.

  • libertarian1234

    Amazing isn’t it?

    These brilliant black purveyors of all things just and good have made a studied analysis and determined that Michael Brown was murdered and that they’ll accept no decision whatsoever to the contrary.

    And why do the authorities treat them with so much deference, especially since they’re low class, uneducated, dim-witted rabble who not only have no power and economic clout, but the facts as outlined to the Grand Jury prove the shooting was certainly justified?

    It’s because they’ll riot and tear things up. And it’s also why the media and police are reluctant to report or play down black on white crime.

    The white weenies are terrified of them, because they have proven many times that they’ll riot, burn, and destroy things over anything they perceive to be an injustice….which is just about everything.

    They’re still in the stone-age as they’ve been in Africa for thousands of years.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      It is easier for folks in the media to cover a story they invented than to do the challenging job of trying to make sense of what is going on in the real world.

      • journey

        As they say, friction has to make sense, truth not.

    • It’s almost impossible for whites to do anything, because the corrupt US government forces political correctness on us. If you don’t comply with this forced social engineering you could lose a job or promotion or be demoted, and be labeled insensitive, racist, blah blah blah. Until we can find someone with integrity to run for office, we’re really stuck with this evil, destructive, counter-productive political correctness.

  • Whites sit around the water cooler and complain. Blacks take to the streets and make wacko demands that politicians ultimately appease.

    Whites need to do more than just whine and complain. The blacks are advantaged though.

    We have jobs we need to to to and to protect. They sit on their lazy butts all day eating food we paid for, taking a dump in toilets we invented and paid for, and screwing women that we support while fathering bastards that we feed, cloth, and edumajcate.

    So, water cooler complaining is our response. But, as our young white men are totally disempowered, our women cast their lot with the powerful black man, our young white men are going to be a force to be reckoned with. No jobs, no women. That’s a powerful motivator to hit the streets and break some black skulls wide open.

    I can’t wait for the white youth to hit the streets. We must encourage them.

      I’ve always said the only way France and Great Britain will get rid of their Muslim problem is through disaffected white teenagers. Politicians? No way. Roving bands of angry white teens will take care of Muslim males. Just stay out of their way. Wilding, anyone?

      “our women cast their lot with the powerful black man”

      In and near urban areas, yes, very much so. A third or so of affirmative action females are marrying Arab, Chinese, Mexican and Indian men (their co-workers, also receiving affirmative action). Some time during the 1990’s many white women got the message and have decided to do the right thing, marry other non-whites to prevent the black family from suffering. But this is old news. What young girls do now, who knows (perhaps listen to educators discuss white [male] privilege)? Perhaps they tune in to AmRen on occasion where they can read that only 1% of whites marry outside of their race? I do know there continues to be huge numbers of educated immigrants (or students) coming into the country. I’m guessing 80 to 90% of the single ones are male.

    3. Do not try to take a Police Officer’s gun.
    4. Do not charge at the Officer after breaking rules 1-3.
    5. If you do 1-5 it will be a miracle if you are not shot to death and it will be completely justified to shoot you to death. It is the most reasonable action an Officer could take under that kind of threat.

    These enablers want to insure that criminals have the upper hand over LE in any confrontation.

    Additionally, if it’s a minority criminal, it will be considered a racial crime if LE is forced to invoke self defense.

    It’s time that LE gets the ‘blue flu’ and let these enabling groups deal with violent minority criminals…and watch some of the victims invoke lethal self defense to protect themselves and their families.

    This pandering needs to stop or things will get even more ‘out of hand’ and some will take matters into their own hands to insure their safety.

  • MannyR

    At a certain point listening to anything these people say is nothing but a waste of time. “Rules of engagement”…. This is beyond a joke and has turned into something more. They’re advocating and asking the police to stand down and allow blacks to throw a fit, not because an innocent person was wrongfully killed, but because they didn’t get their way. Michael Brown committed felony assult on a police officer and then attempted to muscle away his firearm in order to kill him. That’s it, there is no other side, enough of this rubbish. Declare a curfew and start arresting people, use whatever force is necessary. If it takes deadly force so be it. No rules, no law, no order…that’s what’s at stake in ferguson. White civilization must take a stand and let blacks know the tantrum is over.

    Here’s a simple rule of engagement. Don’t assault cops.

    So the thugs want to be in charge now?
    It looks that way. I say let them be.

    Law enforcement would do well to disappear and leave them to their own dysfunctional devices.

    I’m sure if any businesses that are left close up, board up their windows and fortify their doors, they’ll be accused of racism and subject to a boycott.

    That’s how it went down during black bike week in Myrtle Beach, SC. Businesses that (rightfully) closed up were sued by the NAACP for discrimination against blacks.

    • Dear gawd! It’s absurd to allow a useless organization such as NAACP to file a lawsuit that taxpayers will have to pay for. What a bunch of useless pukes! That this is allowed to go forward is just another indication of the decline of America. NAACP is comprised of indolent, dumb people. They do nothing but tell lies to keep blacks stirred-up, hating whites. How far the US has sunk when this sort of thing can happen.

    No rubber bullets and tear gas? Ok no problem. How about soap, deodorant, and job applications?

    So police are being too mean to criminals, huh? I have a solution, don’t commit any crimes. There, problem solved.

    I assume that the prosecutor is waiting for the first heavy snowfall before he announces that Darren Wilson has been no-billed. Rules of engagement won’t be necessary. There won’t be anyone on the streets to engage.

  • Ashstrodamus1 .

    The protesters are fed up with a police force that isn’t diverse enough? Hell, it could be an all-black force and the community would still call them Uncle Toms.

    Assuming Officer Wilson is not indicted by the Grand Jury…

    Anononymous Leak- No Indictment

    Every third cop for a thousand miles should be asked to volunteer time to put Ferguson under lockdown with riot gear (heavy ballistic armor, M4, face mask and respirator) equipped men every fifty feet on the sidewalks around the black neighborhoods and the business districts.

    We should set up masted sensors with high def video to get facial IDs and overhead drones to track movements, historically, back to addresses. With a picture and a destination, arrests can come at your convenience.

    Boomerang gunshot tracking should cue helicopter teams ready to air mobilize SWAT into direct proximity with immediate-threat shooters as 3D maneuver bypass strategies rather than ‘fighting through’ riot lines which exist solely to fix police as plinkable targets along static frontages.

    These insertion teams should be backed by light armor rescue forces in case it turns into a trap conditioned engagement.

    ‘Ferguson PD Rules Of Engagement’ should be posted, explicitly, on light and telephone poles and stated once an hour via sponsored advertising on radio and television:

    1. No one on the streets after sundown.

    2. Looters and Vandals will be shot.

    3. No groups of people larger than 3 in public, during the day.

    4. No riots or ‘demonstrations’ will be condoned, people violating fundamental public
    menacing codes will be arrested. People who resist arrest will be shot.

    5. The President of the United States mandates that ALL people living within Ferguson
    _obey the law_.

    Even if Obama doesn’t technically agree to endorse #5, it should be stated anyway so that he has to /explicitly state otherwise/ to show he is not in favor of ‘his people’ obeying the law.

    The more explicit you are, the less you have to deal with damage control over the ‘unexpected’ which outside agencies foment into tragedy.

    It’s a sad day when blacks give us exactly the Police State that we want to avoid for ourselves but I think it’s better to say what you mean and make accepting the consequences as informed and irrevocable a choice as possible rather than have innocents be punished by stupidity of bad company or collateral victimization as splash damage.

    The worst thing that could happen here is to give Obama a massacre excuse to bring in real military rather than letting civilian policing agencies do their job so I also believe we need to consider mass use of incapacitants if crowds over 20 appear on the streets. Better to knock them out or nauseate the fight out of them and sort out the mess at the hospital where they can be separately cuffed to a bed.

    Whites… Do what I told you to a week back: Cluster up in the most defendable neighbor’s home as fighting position you can improve with shared cash as added locks, window planking, video and a safe room. Get your valuables, some food, entertainment for the kids and essentials together at the fortress location, beforehand. And if you know how to use them, gather weapons as well. Have a plan as a destination to get out the back window with ropes and a fire extinguisher.

    Stay strong. Be humble. Stay out of it. DO NOT wait to make the move until after any trouble has already started. You are your best advantage, together.
