1. Justice for all? I don't think so.

 

If you or I did that we would be sitting in jail for making criminal threats.

I'm betting this cop is just going to get "additional training".

24. "If you or I did that we would be sitting in jail for making criminal threats."

Seems like an intentional strategy to get people in jail. I'm saying it seems deliberate and intentional. These are "authorities", and presumably this is their "normal and customary" way of treating members of the public. When authorities create such an example, would it not be reasonable for "social humans" with "mirror neurons" to emulate? Once emulated, arrest follows, and so probably does conviction. I'm thinking this is a "sophisticated" type of psychological entrapment.

I'm particularly remembering the 24000 warrants issued in Ferguson in 2013, several for every house in town.

were lacking.

9. He did look tired. I think last night really freaked him out.

Also, the guy on Rebelutionary_Z spoke to him a bit and Tim barely acknowledged. Seems they have some acrimony form previous demonstrations but the guy on Rebelutionary_Z wouldn't elaborate on what exactly happened.

4. Rebelutionary_Z was the best coverage tonight.

The Argus radio guy looked like he was ready to cry by the end of the night. I understood why. It started out so well and then stuff started happening. All in all, it was better than other nights but still not good at all.

The best live streams are hard to find but I find the chat on http://www.livestream.com/activistworldnewsnow provides good links to live photographers. Also, check twitter accounts and of course DU for links.

11. BTW, anyone listening to this cop's rage and his threats to kill a (white) reporter should

easily understand how a cop like Wilson might work himself up into a rage that would lead him to shoot a black teenager to death, since the rage at being crossed or even merely annoyed would be exacerbated by underlying personal and institutional racism.

27. I believe that such bullying rage is pretty common in a significant portion

of the cops in all parts of the country, and that racism exacerbates that rage in many of them. I suspect that some join the force because they *want* the opportunity to bully and viciously abuse people, while some others are corrupted by the culture that they become a part of when they become cops.

Meanwhile, those who don't want to abuse people participate in the abuse and corruption by remaining silent and by helping to cover up the actions of the worst ones. I think some do so out of a feeling of solidarity, but I bet many do it because they are afraid of what sorts if retaliation they will be subjected to if they dare to violate the omerta.

26. 'The fish rots from the head'.

When the people deciding who to hire are 'bad apples' they surround themselves with more 'bad apples' like themselves.

It's true for Christie, and it looks true here.

13. Unbelievable

I'm sitting here thinking about that guy, and what made him the person he is.

I think a lot of these cops are either talking klan with each other off duty or somehow being pumped up. How else are they so eager to show so much hatred toward their fellow human beings at just the teensiest smidge of provocation?

This is not a good look for the US at all. Cop GoFuckYourself reminds me of Al Capone in Boardwalk Empire.

He has completely lost all verbal impulse control and dehumanizes every single person around him. He's overly emotional, probably sleep-deprived and/or on some sort of speed, and the community has to let him walk around with a loaded gun pointed at everyone.

Really? America?

Where's that red, white and blue land of freedom and justice all these politicians serenade and brag about every election season?

Where's that land free of oppression and fascism and hatred of the "other?"

It's not in Ferguson. The cops can stick loaded guns in your face in Ferguson and threaten to blow your head off. And the taxpayers gotta pay the guy to do it.

But at least the rest of the world is getting a first hand view of the crap some cops do to their fellow human beings here in the Land of the Free, bringer of democracy to faraway lands.....

Thank you, 951-Riverside. Exactly.

"I will fucking kill you!" and "Go Fuck yourself!" and then "Let us pray."

This is the twilight zone, and those guys just earned an EMMY.

16. Why are supposedly trained law enforcement officers

pointing their weapons indiscriminately at non-threatening civilians? They should all be dismissed. This is unacceptable.

Why aren't these police under arrest? I know I would be looking at a long stretch in prison of I did what those cops did.

everyone see the true picture of what drives the people behind the badge.

I'm naturally suspicious of this considering the source but it does look like the same guy to me.

ACLU: Officer Who Threatened to 'F*cking Kill' Ferguson Protesters Taken Off Duty, 8/20/14

In the video he points a gun at protesters and says he'll "fucking kill" one man. When asked what his name is, he replies, "Go fuck yourself". A St. Louis County Police Sergeant walked over and forced the officer to lower his weapon and escorted him from the area. The officer is with the St. Ann Police Department. He has been relieved of duty and suspended indefinitely. For any further regarding the status of the officer, questions need to be directed to the St. Ann Police Department.
