Ferguson, Missouri is part of  St. Louis. It achieved fame when blacks rioted after one was killed by a policeman. Blacks object to being killed even if they are trying to commit murder at the time. In this case a white policeman was being attacked by a vicious, foul mouthed,  300 pound black thief. This was a Racist murder according to locals, two thirds of whom are black.

The perpetrator, Michael Brown who is now dead was written up by the Wikipedia. You might feel that their version of truth is tendentious. You might feel that the general Main Stream Media coverage was grossly tendentious, written to incite Black Hate & White Guilt. One version of truth is at Being Black - The Real Indictment in Ferguson and the USA. It alleges that white policemen shoot blacks because they feel like it and are allowed to get away with murder. Compare it with 13 Facts About Ferguson the Media Will Never Tell You. One writer is lying in his, her or its teeth. Read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself.

Blacks Commit More Crime - Blacks Get Stopped More
“Data collected by the Ferguson Police Department from 2012 to 2014 shows that African-Americans account for 85 percent of vehicle stops, 90 percent of citations, and 93 percent of arrests made by FPD officers, despite comprising only 67 percent of Ferguson’s population.”

Those statistics don’t prove racism, because blacks don’t commit traffic offenses at the same rate as other population groups. The Bureau of Justice Statistics’ 2011 Police-Public Contact Survey indicates that, nationwide, blacks were 31 percent more likely than whites to be pulled over for a traffic stop.

Ferguson is a black-majority town. If its blacks were pulled over at the same rate as blacks nationally, they’d account for 87.5 percent of traffic stops.

In other words, the numbers actually suggest that Ferguson police may be slightly less likely to pull over black drivers than are their national counterparts. They certainly don’t show that Ferguson is a hotbed of racism.

Critics may assert that that “31 percent more likely” figure simply shows that racism is endemic to police forces nationwide......

In fact, blacks die in car accidents at a rate about twice their share of car owners.

A 2006 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study found that black drivers who were killed in accidents have the highest rate of past convictions for speeding and for other moving violations. This suggests that there are a lot of unsafe black drivers, not racism.
There are lies, damned lies and statistics. Sometimes I believe the numbers.

13 Facts About Ferguson the Media Will Never Tell You

Tuesday, 25 Nov 2014 11:50 AM
By Jim Meyers

According to protesters who erupted in violence after a grand jury declined to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., this was the case of a white policeman shooting an unarmed black teenager with his hands in the air in a community plagued by racial tension.
That's an account promoted by many in the mainstream media as well. But here are several facts about the case that are harder to find:

1. Surveillance video showed that shortly before the confrontation, 18-year-old Brown stole cigarillos from a convenience store and shoved a clerk who tried to stop him.

2. The autopsy report showed that Brown had marijuana in his system when he died.

3. Officer Wilson, driving to the call of a medical emergency, first encountered Brown walking in the middle of a street and told Brown and his friend to walk on the sidewalk. Brown responded with an expletive.

4. Wilson chose to confront Brown only after he saw the cigarillos in his hand and recalled the radio report of a robbery at the convenience store.

5. Wilson said when he tried to open his car door, Brown slammed it back shut, then punched Wilson in the face.

6. Fearing another punch could knock him out, Wilson drew his gun, he told the grand jury, and Brown grabbed the gun, saying "you are too much of a pussy to shoot me."

7. An African-American witness confirmed that Brown and Wilson appeared to be "arm-wrestling" by the car.

8. Another witness saw Brown leaning through the car's window and said "some sort of confrontation was taking place."

9. After Wilson fired a shot that struck Brown's hand, Brown fled and Wilson gave chase. Brown suddenly stopped. An unidentified witness told the grand jury that 6-foot-4, 292-pound Brown charged at Wilson with his head down. Wilson said Brown put his hand under the waistband of his pants as he continued toward Wilson. That's when Wilson fired.

10. A witness testified that Brown never raised his hands.

11. Gunpowder found on the wound on Brown's hand indicated his hand was close to the gun when it fired. According to a report, the hand wound showed foreign matter "consistent with products that are discharged from the barrel of a firearm."

12. Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist who reviewed the autopsy for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, said the gunpowder "supports the fact that this guy is reaching for the gun, if he has particulate matter in the wound."

13. Wilson said Brown was physically uncontrollable and "for lack of a better word, crazy." He said that during the confrontation, he was thinking: "He's gonna kill me. How do I survive?" Legal experts say police officers typically have wide latitude to use deadly force when they feel their safety is threatened.

ARRSE Takes A Position On Ferguson
People who don't live in the US take the matter of private firearm ownership in isolation and bash it one way or the other depending on their personal views. The reality is that the 2nd Amdt, along with most of the US constitution was carefully crafted to first balance power in the hands of the government, then create a series of hard stops incase said government tried to overreach.

Given that the government in US is designed to serve the will of the people, having widespread private firearm ownership rather ensures that within boundaries that actually happens. Take for example a collection of citizens who disagree with say, a federal decision to make their land a national park. When they ignore it, federal officers come to evict and are met with a significant armed presence. Said federal department now needs to decide if this worth the ensuing battle to enforce the decision. Given that the people who live there have decided they don't want it, then said federal agency is pushed back to serving the will of those people.

Now you can pull that simplistic picture apart, but the bottom line is government does have to take into account the will of its people, as the people can, if they feel motivated enough, hard stop them. It then becomes the natural break the authors of the constitution want.

America is polarized for the most part, you are either them or us, and the media reflect all of that though their very dysfunctional lens. There is a huge industry invested in the white kills black narrative, to the extent that there will be little to no truth or reason after the initial colors are known.

Sadly as a result huge parts of Urban US are about 48 hrs from disintegration. Remove power or rule of law and the populace descends to anarchy (New Orleans), once the idea that the police in Ferguson might not enforce the law society leapt to its basic nature.

Set against that backdrop, the private firearm ownership laws in most states are a welcome security blanket for when sections of society go feral and or the police are unable to contain it.

Personally, I'd rather have a hand in my own fate, with the tools to defend myself if required than sit around waiting for other people to tell me what to do and hoping gangs of feral savages don't target my house for their expression of displeasure with the world that evening.

As it turns out that view is widely held in the US, and has repeatedly been challenged and enforced by various hardening of the laws necessary for private citizens to use lethal force in defence of their family and property.

So while posters on ARRSE might wish for another fairly large country to bend to their internet will, the majority of the population of that country seem inclined to neither know nor care what anyone else thinks and maintain and strengthen their right to self defense.

Having emigrated to US from UK, for me I really like it as a place to live and bring up a family. My experience has been it has a way better value set that [ than the ] UK. Maybe that's just me.

If you don't like the idea of the US, then you are very welcome not to go there, they won't mind.


Shoot To Kill Or Shoot To Live?
Michael Yon can say been there, done that, knows the score; he does not know how many firefights he has been in. Michael explains:-
Many people are innocently asking this question. The answer could go on for pages, but to be succinct, a couple handfuls of reasons:-
1) This ain't the movies
2) Most police do not fire their weapons much. Most are not great shots.
3) He would have to be an incredible shot to be crazy enough to fire wounding shots.
4) Nearly all firefights are "stress shoots." The other guy is moving. Heart is beating fast, often out of breath. The officer in Ferguson had just been punched in the face and had been in a wrestling match for his pistol, according to him.
5) Bullets that miss can hit someone else.
6) You always are low on ammo, and you do not want to waste a single bullet.
7) Time spent reloading is dangerous
8) I have seen many people shot who kept fighting. Shot with weapons far more powerful than any officer's pistol. Many police and combat troops have seen this and will verify.
9) Police and Soldiers never train to shoot to wound. (None that I know of.) All combat shots are center mass of any part of the target that you can see. If you see only a foot. Shoot the foot. If you see a chest -- aim for the middle. That is the way troops and police train. If the officer is pointing his pistol at someone, he is one click away from going lethal. There is no in between.
10) This ain't the movies.......
See the bullets fly and the men fight:-

Ferguson Developments

The West Florissant Avenue Corridor Demonstration Project is the rather pompous title for rebuilding Ferguson, a run down area full of blacks in St. Louis. The committee running the project, the East-West Gateway Council of Governments tells us that it is fully compliant with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes. This seems to mean that it supports superior rights for blacks. It does not tell us whether it complies with various laws regarding theft, bribery, taking money from developers, compliance with  planning law et cetera.

Its marketing failed, allegedly because small shop owners refused to be bought out. Perhaps the offers were too low. Perhaps they didn't want to go out of business. Then the riots came along. Were they stitched up? Did the value of their properties go down big time? Do they have anything left? Here comes an answer.

Ferguson was a fascist SCAM on "mom & pop" stores that refused to sell!
The consultation period ended on 20 June. The rioting kicked off a few weeks later, on 9 August 2014. Cause and effect? Pass. Related? Perhaps. There are too many things wrong or unconfirmed to take this one seriously.

Ferguson rioters who (at least at first) were well proven and publicly announced by the Mayor himself to be paid imports who arrived on buses from Chicago, [ There is no source out there on the Internet confirming this allegation - Editor ]



Ferguson - A Post Script [ 1 December 2014 ]
A policeman killed a 300 lb. black thief who was trying to kill him. Blacks rioted. Why? The Main Stream Media incite Black Hate but that is only part of the reason. Where is it leading to? Fred explains. Fred has spent a lot of time, with the police in the ghettoes; they really do exist. Detroit is just one of them. The hate is real, deep, sincere. Hispanics don't like blacks either; they compete for the same jobs. They aren't so lazy. Civil War is one distinct possibility.
PS Fred does not mention that Cameron is importing millions of them into England, setting up the same problems for us.

Vicious Black Shoots Policeman - Media Incite Blacks To Hate Police  [ 31 March 2015 ]
Officer John Moynihan was shot in the face at point-blank range by a black man on Friday and you probably didn’t hear about it [ Boston Police: Officer shot, suspected gunman dead,, WCS, WCSH 6, March 28, 2015]. Moynihan, currently in a coma, never had a chance to reach for his weapon before he was gunned down by one Angelo West, who was killed at the scene by responding officers. After the killing, a hostile mob of blacks screaming “ Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” was only held at bay because of Boston Police Department Superintendent-in-Chief William Goss, an African-American who calmly spoke to the crowd and was taunted with racial epithets by his co-ethnics for doing so [ Gelzinis: Mob posturing to cameras tries to make Boston Ferguson, by Peter Gelzinis, Boston Herald, arch 29, 2015]. And even as Officer Moynihan fights for his life, this hasn’t stopped Ferguson-style black protest groups from holding racially segregated meetings so as to “honor the wishes” of the killer’s family.

It’s only the latest episode in what has become a slow-motion black war against police officers enabled by President Barack Obama [ black ], Attorney General Eric Holder [ black ], and an increasingly unhinged and hysterical Main Stream Media [ controlled by Jews ]. They have emboldened violent and racist black thugs, essentially issuing them a license to kill, and imposing on whites a duty to die...........

As in the movie Groundhog Day, we seem to be reliving this story every day anew. But this is no movie; this is America’s waking nightmare. It cannot go on forever. And it won’t have a happy ending.
Destroying Western Civilization is the agenda. Zionist crazies are the perpetrators. Divide and conquer is the method worked out by Antonio Gramsci, the leading theoretician of the Italian communist party. Main Stream Media are Propaganda machines used to incite Black Hate. Jews carried out their The Long March Through The Institutions. They made Obama president because they could use him because America as a Fascist State; it has a Zionist Occupation Government [ ZOG ].
