2 Shot, Arrests Made During Demonstrations in Ferguson

Dan Greenwald, KMOV (Ferguson), April 29, 2015

Active demonstrations played out in Ferguson overnight, leading to two people being shot in separate shootings and at least two people being arrested.

Authorities said the first shooting occurred near the intersection of West Florissant and Canfield. {snip}

St. Louis Alderman Antonio French, who was on the scene, said another person was shot in the neck on Canfield Drive around 12:20 a.m. {snip}

Witnesses said some protesters threw rocks at officers and briefly blocked the street. Cars were seen doing donuts along West Florissant.

News 4’s Matt Sczesny said shots were also fired at other times throughout the night. Fires were also set in the streets throughout the night but they appeared to be contained.

Around 1:40 Wednesday morning, a Mobil, located on West Florissant, was looted for the third time since the shooting of Michael Brown. At least five suspects have been arrested in connection with the looting, police said.

  • Welcome back, Fergaza Strip.

    Have the home values come back up yet?

      If they do, whites will be blamed for gentrification.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        Good. If whites are blamed for bringing clean, livable, tolerable, and attractive communites back via gentrification, great. Look at all that extra tax $$$ from attractive properties the public schools could use, no?

        • One black woman wrote that she hated seeing “all these white men everywhere”. There was a partly-white version with hair weaves at the Diamond Shamrock yesterday evening (she was buying lottery tickets). She gave us a completely horrified look, as if we belonged somewhere else. I guess waiting quietly in line behind one of those animals is a “microaggression”.

    • No.

  • propagandaoftruth

    Monkey see, monkey do.

    • Also there were some protests in Chicago.

      • propagandaoftruth

        I’m more concerned by the “protest” in Charleston, obviously. SC Whites have a lot of guns. And a temper.

        • There are some people with whom one does not jack. On the other hand, not everyone is very bright. On the gripping hand, dey gots ta be haben dem some loot, gnome sayin’?”

          Like toilet paper and cases of beer.

        Have you seen the stupidity going on in New York?

        • Samuel Hathaway

          Yes, and did you see in the Union Square section, all those white people protesting and marching? And did you see the McDonald’s along the march route? Maybe McD’s “365-black” campaign will come back to bite it in the butt.

            Oh well, its not the New York City of 1845.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Tragically, the white past has been swept away. My parents made a trip to New York City in the early 1990s and made the most beautiful photo of the World Trade Center. And of course, due to the idiot belief that Muslims are just peachy, our guard was down, and well, you know the rest…

    As long as it’s blacks shooting blacks then this doesn’t bother me in the slightest, after all it’s what they do best.

    • John Smith

      Cops should stay at the donut shop and have another round.

      • blanjm5

        I encourage my cop buddies to drive slow as molasses to negroes shot.

    “Around 1:40 Wednesday morning, a Mobil, located on West Florissant, was looted for the third time since the shooting of Michael Brown.”

    If I were that store owner I’d close the store down. I’m surprised he didn’t do so after the first or second time it was looted. There’s no way he’s making much of a profit considering the sky-high losses he must be incurring due to theft and destruction of store property.

    • phillyguy

      it’s a shame he probably has his whole life savings invested in that gas station.

      He should’ve torched it.

    • carriewhite64

      I can’t imagine that he can get it insured.

  • listenupbub

    This is good for our cause.

  • Oh, yeah Ferguson, the other riot.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      Ferguson rioters: “Mr. DeMille, we’re ready for our close-up now.”

  • Michigan Patriot

    They caught those White perps, good. According to all t.v. crime shows & commercials; they show only White actors playing criminals ; so all criminals are White ; racist propaganda 101.
