The Assemblies in Missouri Won’t Dissipate, Seven Members of the Rioters Were Arrested

On the recent shooting of an African American teen by cops in the U.S.A., from the Front Page Sections, translated…

When the curfew for the city of Ferguson, Missouri took place on the early morning of the 17th, there were two hundred rioters who ignored it, and kept gathering in the place where the eighteen-year-old youth, Brown, was shot and murdered brutally by the police.  The police shot the gas bombs into the crowd and threw tear gas toward the crowd too, managed to arrest seven individuals.  At the same district, there was also a murder by guns too.

The governor, Nixon, on the 16th, declared that Ferguson is in a state of emergency on the 16th, and from midnight of the 17th, started enforcing a curfew, which was ended at five in the morn.  Over a hundred of the public who’d gathered, left in peace before the curfew started, and, Ferguson was peaceful, save for the place where the teenager was shot, where the protestors ignored the curfews and still gathered, screaming, “NO CURFEWS!”

Not long thereafter, heavily armed police started shooting gas and tear bombs into the crowd, and slowly moved forward, to stop the crowd from gathering up.

When the police was at a standoff with the protestors, someone was shot in the same area, the police had yet to identify the injured victim, Johnson stressed, that the man injured was NOT shot by the police, and the man who’d shot him is still at large.

The governor, Nixon said, that the curfews had helped maintain order in Ferguson, and, the curfews will be lifted, as the local government sees fitting.

After Brown was shot by a white police officer, Wilson, on the ninth, the racial tension is on the rise locally, and, the residents had multiple times started riots, and there were those who took advantage of the situation.  Johnson pointed out, that there were forty FBI agents who made house calls since the sixteenth, to find the witnesses to the shooting, and a few weeks from now, hopefully, everything will be cleared up.

Once again, the locals saw this as a racial thing, and, maybe it IS a racial thing, after all, NOBODY would EVER mistake a WHITE dude, holding something that’s NOT threatening, and SHOOT him, and this young man was shot, because of his skin color, so, no wonder the local residents are PISSED off about it.

White American Officers Shot an African American Adolescent, and Thousands of Americans Protested about It

And no, your time machines still didn’t CRASH, and landed your separate ASSES back in the 1960s-ish???  This IS racial profiling, stereotype, at ITS worst, and it had happened, in the U.S.A. the “land of the free”???  From the Front Page Section, translated…

On the ninth, when the Ferguson police of Missouri was out on duty, they’d had a physical confrontation with an eighteen-year-old African American male, Brown, who was unarmed, and the police used guns, fired off several shots, and killed Brown.  And, Brown’s death had gotten over a thousand of the citizens in the public to gather up and protest, and, it’d led to a riot between the police and the citizens, along with the angry mob, breaking into stores, and destroying the police squad cars.

The chief of police of St. Louis in the press conference, stated, that two officers had bumped into Brown and another male close to an apartment compound, as the police were getting out of their patrol cars, Brown attempted to push the officers back inside and attempted to reach for the guns that the police officers carried.  The police fired a shot inside the squad car, and, after the physical confrontation continued on the streets, Brown had died of multiple gunshot wounds about thirty-five feet away from where the squad car was.  And the witnesses claimed that they saw Brown get shot eight times.

And, the public and the police engaged in a he-said she-said on what had happened.  Based off of the companion who was with Brown, Johnson, they were walking down the streets, when the police called out to them, and pulled out their guns, and started shooting at Brown, as Brown turned around, raised up his arms, was about to get on the ground, the police got close to him, and, fired off several shots toward him, and they weren’t involved in any arguments or confrontations.  And Johnson was not under arrest either.

On the tenth when the police held a press conference, over a hundred residents gathered outside the Ferguson Police Station, some of the civilians had gotten so angered and moved into the close by police quarters, raising up their hands, screamed out, “do NOT shoot me”, they acted as if they are needing mercy from the officers.  The police held down the fortress, and then, the mob of people dissipated.

But, on the night when they’d held a candlelight vigil prayer session at the scene of where Brown got shot, the crowd got out of control and it became a riot.  Over a thousand had attended this candlelight vigil, and afterwards, some of the protestors got into it with the police, and started robbing the stores on the streets.  The convenience store of a gas station nearby was robbed, a nearby Wal-Mart was robbed too, and there were those who’d jumped UP onto the squad cars, to start something, or to vandalize the properties.  The police took their dogs and started throwing tear gas into the public, but, the local police force was NOT enough, and so, the neighboring areas’ police were called on to help out.

This case had gotten the attention of the local civil rights leaders, and they stated that this, was exactly like the 2012 case where an unarmed seventeen-year-old African American who was killed by a WHITE officer, Zimmerman, and, Zimmerman was found not guilty by the courts.

And now, they don’t know if the office who’d shot Brown was white or not, Ferguson is a predominantly black neighborhood north of St. Louis, in the suburbs.  The people who were critical about this claimed, that when the St. Louis area officers were out, making their rounds, they specifically targeted African American youths.

Brown’s mother said, that Brown had just graduated from high school this year, and was about to head off to a local university.

And so, history is still repeating itself here, and there WERE previous cases, I just can’t recall the years that those previous cases had happened, and, it’s JUST like what we’d learned about in social psyc, that the police would more than likely to see a minority (like African Americans???) with a harmless object, and see the person holding something threatening, versus if they were face-to-face with a WHITE man, and this, is ONE MORE (and I’m quite certain that it still won’t BE the last!!!) case where the color of one’s skin got you brutally KILLED by the police.
