  3. No.

    That guy has serious anger management issues.
    Also is a supporter of a terrorist group called Hamas.
    He was very rude to police officers because he has his own anger management issues.
    How foolish to promote such a pathetic loser douchebag.

    Put the guy on a 5150 hold at a local psychiatric hospital, maybe.

    The punch line, of course, is that when that law was 1985...Emperor Reagan was in power.

    Was I promoting him...or protesting the actions taken to silence him?

    Golly. I guess you will never know.

    People needing psychiatric help:

    Those gassing people carrying 78-year-old woman having a heart attack AND the woman, herself.

    Palestinian people have shown to be supportive of Ferguson, offering tips for tear gas and such.
    [Image: A Tweet with an image of a sign saying: "The Palestinian People know what mean to be shot while unarmed because of your ethnicity #Ferguson #Justice" The tweet says "Hamde Adu tells #Ferguson that #Palestine knows what it means to be shot for your ethnicity."] p7pew.jpg
    [Image: Tweet says: Don't Keep much distance from the Police, if you're close to them they can't tear Gas. To #Ferguson from #Palestine]

    The Huffington Post has pointed out many inconsistencies in the Grand Jury's evidence to not indict Darren Wilson:
    1) He (Darren Wilson) washed away blood evidence. He stated that it was probably Michael Brown's blood, due to him not being cut anywhere.
    2) The first officer to interview Darren Wilson did not take any notes
    3) Lack of a measurement of distance between Darren Wilson and Michael Brown. (see: here)
    4) Wilson's gun was not tested for fingerprints
    5) Wilson did not turn over his gun to Investigators immediately after murdering Michael
    6) Initial interview was delayed while Wilson traveled to the hospital with his superiors
    7)Darren Wilson's initial interview with the detective and information later given in testimony conflict.

    An interview with Darren Wilson can be found here. More important evidence can also be found here, though I haven't made sure of the validity of those claims.

    You can find a bunch of links to relevant information here. You can see documentation of Darren Wilson's "injuries" here. Darren Wilson also has a history of harassing others, using excess violence, and racial profiling. You can find examples here, here, here, and here.

    Witness inconsistency was already mentioned in this topic here.

    The National Bar has issued a statement questioning the Grand Jury's decision to not indict Darren Wilson. (New article, Primary source)

    Thanks for giving: Ferguson bakery owner in tears after public donates over $200,000 in repair funds | RT

    A Ferguson resident who saw her bakery vandalized during the recent riots has received over $200,000 to repair her business. Natalie DuBose said she was “in tears” at the amount of support she has received during “this crazy difficult time.”

    Following the advice of a friend, she decided to start an account for donations to help rebuild her business. Little would she know that she would manage to raise over $215,000 in less than a day, with over 6,500 people making donations from $10 to $1000.

    “I'm overwhelmed by the amazing generosity I'm receiving. The love, attention, support, the many, many people stopping by to say hello, the offers of assistance, the letters, the anonymous donations, the lovely letters, flowers, telephone calls, media support, and the support of the people of Ferguson. Thank you for the wonderful comments; I can't wait to read them all. I am truly and humbly blessed,” she wrote on her GoFundMe donation page.

    The five leaders who failed Ferguson | The Guardian

    The crisis in Ferguson has been made worse by serious failures in public administration by police chiefs, regional leaders and even the state’s governor.

    By Jon Swaine in Ferguson, Missouri

    From police leaving Michael Brown’s body on a street for four hours under an afternoon sun in August, to a county prosecutor waiting until the dark of a combustible night to announce that the officer who shot Brown would not be charged with a crime, the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri, has been punctuated by serious failures in public administration.

    Police chiefs, regional leaders and the state’s governor have frequently struggled. At times they have seemed at odds with one another and out of their depth. This culminated on Monday night with the burning of sections of the city despite the presence of hundreds of national guard troops, and police having had three months to prepare for the evening.

    This analysis is an attempt to retrace the missteps made since 9 August by five key players in the Ferguson crisis: St Louis County prosecuting attorney Bob McCulloch; Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri; Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson; Ferguson mayor James Knowles and St Louis County police chief Jon Belmar.

    At least they said, "Good evening." #Ferguson


    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 1h 1 hour ago
    They're quite cordial. "Be safe tonight, fellas." Asked if they were directed to speak to us. They said no. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 1h 1 hour ago
    Oh, #Ferguson. This really makes me "sad."


    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 1h 1 hour ago
    #Missouri National Guard said they're here to protect our right to demonstrate. First time I've heard that. #Ferguson

    The humvee next to that house made my eyes water. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 1h 1 hour ago
    The military presence has really affected me. I'm so disappointed. The reality and seriousness of this situation now just hit me. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 1h 1 hour ago
    I feel like a punk saying I'm sad but I am. All of this. All of this... for what?! For who?! #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 44m 44 minutes ago
    I don't enjoy this. I don't think it's normal to enjoy this. This entire situation is a goddamn shame. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 42m 42 minutes ago
    I think I'm just spent. I'm no longer angry. I'm legitimately sad that this is where we are. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 38m 38 minutes ago
    Yes, I was out Monday. Yes, I was out Tuesday. Knew the military was here. But tonight just felt somber. And it finally hit me. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 36m 36 minutes ago
    And the fact that children have to see all of this in their neighborhood is just... #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 33m 33 minutes ago
    Yeah, I'm done for tonight.

    News showing last night's arrest. NOT ONE arrested were regular protesters. They were ALL members of a communist group. NOT US. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 9m 9 minutes ago
    Make sure you RT or tweet to your followers that last night's protesters at the #Ferguson PD were NOT regular #MikeBrown protesters.

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 7m 7 minutes ago
    RevCom [Revolutionary Communist Party] and now PLP [Progressive Labor Party]. Ridiculous. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 5m 5 minutes ago
    Go push your agenda on your own and somewhere else but don't do it on the dead body of a young Black male. #Ferguson

    Charles Wade @akacharleswade · 3m 3 minutes ago
    What these communist groups are doing in #Ferguson is NOT solidarity. #MikeBrown protest signs with your website on it?! Stop it. CO-OPTING.
