Street Thugs vs Thug Cops: Ferguson Anniversary Sparks Street Gunfight

21st Century Wire says…

Peaceful commemorations turned violent late Sunday night. What was marketed by activists and community organizers as a “peaceful event” quickly morphed into a scene out of New Jack City, albeit without the bling.

All bets were off when armed street agitators and police exchanged gunfire last night.

County officials declared a ‘state of emergency’, citing violence by demonstrators as crowds converged on the town of Ferguson, Missouri to mark the one-year anniversary of the death Michael Brown.

“The recent acts of violence will not be tolerated in a community that has worked so tirelessly over the last year to rebuild and become stronger,” said St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger.

Regrettably, mobs could not resist looting some of the very same stores which they destroyed on multiple occasions in 2014.

In a surreal scene, Ferguson’s new police chief, Andre Anderson (photo, above), was talking to CNN on Sunday evening when dozens of rounds were fired in multiple directions by both street thugs and police. It quickly spiraled into a full-on disaster.

One victim of the chaos was Ferguson resident Tyrone Harris, 18 year old, allegedly a ‘friend of Michael Brown’. Harris exchanged gunfire with police, before he was shot by police and is said to be in critical condition tonight.

Shooter Harris has since been charged with assault, although his family are publicly denying any wrong doing, claiming, ‘He would never do a thing like that’.

The Atlantic reports: “The Washington Post reported that Deray Mckesson, Johnetta Elzie,  Kayla Reed and Cornel West were arrested Monday outside the St. Louis Justice Center. Some 150 activists had staged a sit-in at the location to mark the anniversary of Brown’s death, and some of them, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, climbed over barricades set up outside the building, “sat down, locked arms and began singing and chanting.” The newspaper adds:When that protesters’ move did not produce any arrests after about 20 minutes, the seated group rose and rushed toward the front door of the courthouse, and sat down again. Shortly after that, about 30 members of the St. Louis Police Department arrived on the scene and arrests began.”

Thus far, more than 50 people have been arrested for various offenses ranging from disturbing the peace, assault, vandalism and looting.

Some critics questioned the basis for the entire public outrage over the Michael Brown case, when it was later proven that Brown did not have his ‘hands up,’ but in fact attacked Darren Wilson before being shot during his violent altercation with the officer. Unfortunately, few bother to acknowledge this fact, as many members of the media continue to lead the public along a false narrative of how those events actually unfolded last year.

More sadly, though, is the fact that questionable police shootings in America are almost a daily event.

Thug life on both sides of this issue – equals a recipe for further disaster on the streets of America…
