Crymore, if anything, you liberals are experts on who's a thug and who's not. So I give that to you, your an expert on thugs. So if and when anyone wearing a hoodie in middle of the night and attacks you and starts beating your head into concrete, remember he's not a thug. He's just a child. More so if he's got a mouth full of skittles.
I don't know how they could hand a bill down for even double parking. That said it's a totally different thing to prove anything in a court of law beyond a reasonable doubt. Even with no bill, the state could change him if they think they have a strong case. Highly unlikely.
I think that was Geraldo Rivera who said if you dress like a thug, you most likely are one. Never heard anyone on Fox pick that up an run with it much less hundreds of times. Course Trevon Martin was a thief, and at time they found a large screw driver near by, type used by burglars. Course trying to smash someones head in might earn you the name 'thug'. All those baby pictures, that person didn't fit as a poor child out in the middle of the night with his iced tea & skittles just trying to kill someone.
CLAYTON • A St. Louis County grand jury has reached a decision on whether to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson and officials will reveal it tonight, the Post-Dispatch has confirmed.
Going be a hot time in town tonight!! Does seem odd choice of timing, at night? All the thugs will be out, oh sorry citizens, looking for bargains. Lights, camera's, action. Take 98!
Agree, it didn't take Bundy long to show his colors. As soon as he did, Fox drop him like a bad habit. No doubt they did get carried away with the plot but never condoned his racist views. Embarrassing to say the least.
On another subject, Brown if not a thug, then how would you describe him with what is known?
"The FBI arrested two men Thursday night accused of purchasing explosives". Not only that, they also purchased two 45 cal automatic pistols illegally from a St Louis gun dealer (straw man purchases). It's only a matter of time before Eric Holder has the charges dropped being they are up standing Black Panther members. Holder seems to have sympathy for known gang members for some reasons.
"Youassholes have a nice little political circle jerk going here with nothing whatever to do with NTI. Go out and get jobs, losers". This post ring a bell with you cumbraggio?
The FBI arrested two men Thursday night accused of purchasing explosives they apparently planned to use during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, a law enforcement source told CBS News.
The men, who live in the St. Louis area, are allegedly members of the new Black Panthers. They were arrested as part of an FBI undercover operation near Ferguson and intended to use the explosives in pipe bombs, the source confirmed.
The suspects, whose names were not released, were arraigned in federal court on Friday.
FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu told CBS News the suspects were arrested on outstanding warrants.
CLAYTON • State and local officials on Friday announced that while they have not negotiated with a coalition of protest groups, they did agree on some of the 19 proposed "rules of engagement" in advance of the announcement of a grand jury decision in the Ferguson shooting of Michael Brown.
A coalition of roughly 50 groups asked officials earlier this month to agree to 19 rules of engagement for the police response to protests. The first was that “The first priority shall be the preservation of human life.” The groups asked police to agree to a “de-militarized response” that would ban the use of armored vehicles, rubber bullets, rifles and tear gas.
The groups also requested police respect safe spaces set up in houses of worship, and for advance notice of the decision of the grand jury considering whether to charge Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of Brown, 18.
The unified police command, which includes the Missouri Highway Patrol and St. Louis County and St. Louis city police, said they agree on some of the group's proposed rules, such as the first priority being the preservation of human life. They also agreed to a series of measures intended to facilitate communication, encourage professionalism by police, discourage aggressive acts and allow those not involved in protests to go about their lives.
They declined, however, to commit to rules about arrests, court procedures and the use of crowd control measures such as armored vehicles and tear gas, qualifying their responses.
Red thumbs are meaningless when you post the truth! All it does is show such posters are either ignorant or devoid of any reading skills for meaning, or both. They are small people who think such things are important.
Well your wrong on that. I don't follow lock step with the party I vote for. I don't like McCain, and always felt Romney was real nice guy, but too weak to run for President. All this don't matter, nothings going to change your mind about anything. I won't even waste my time trying, but when your obviously lying, please excuse me when I call you up. What's so grating about you liberals is you all think other people are so stupid to believe you.
Attorney General Eric Holder privately expressed frustration to Missouri's governor over declaring a state of emergency ahead of a grand jury decision in last summer's police shooting of an unarmed black man in Ferguson, a Justice Department official told CBS news.
Missouri governor declares state of emergency in Ferguson
The official said Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon didn't give the department advance notice of the state of emergency and activation of the National Guard, CBS News reporter Paula Reid reports. Nixon took the actions Monday while a grand jury is deciding whether to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
A decision from the grand jury is expected in the coming days.
Holder thought that Nixon's actions set the wrong tone and that the tone of his press conference Monday was counter-productive and served to escalate tensions well ahead of the grand jury decision, the official said.
Protesters arrested in clash outside Ferguson police station
Two sources have confirmed to Reid that the grand jury was expected to hear from one more witness Friday and then begin deliberations.
Looks like Eric Holder is also deaf and blind as what's happening every night in Ferguson & area. It's not setting the wrong tone, it's called being prepared for the worst.
crymore, Obama has had zero to do with the economy, nada, zip, nothing!! The Federal Reserve with zero money, printing presses running 28 hours a day is what's holding this together. Just wait until the day the Fed just raises rates .25% and panic be in the streets. Any economist will tell you this if you were not tone deaf. Even at that, this has been the longest, slowest recovery since the depression. Clearly you don't watch Fox either, as if you did, you would know your lying. Wake up, Obama and his party of clowns tearing this country down, apart. Don't you ever read polls? People are waking up to this nightmare they voted in just because he was a 50% and looked black. Grossly unqualified to be president and everyday he proves it.

Police and protesters clashed outside Ferguson, Missouri police headquarters Thursday night.
Protesters lined up and chanted, taunting 31 officers, mostly from St. Louis County, for about an hour, as the officers secured the perimeter of the police station.
But, according to a CBS News producer on-scene, demonstrators then moved into the street and blocked a handful of cars. That's when things turned ugly.
Police charged at protesters, trying to move them back toward a nearby parking lot. They then charged at protesters with pepper spray, batons, bean bag rifles and shields.
Several protesters were thrown to the ground, and at least three were arrested.
Witnesses say at least one man was shot with a bean bag gun and ran off.
A number of liberal leaning networks keep reporting the on going demonstration have been 'for the most part' peaceful. However this rarely the case with continued taunting directed at officer, bottles etc being tossed. Bottom line, the so called protesters are gearing up to cause as much damage as they can.
FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)– Department of Justice representatives have come to Ferguson in the wake of Michael Brown’s death. They’re making strong demands they don’t appear to follow themselves.
Activists often complain about officers without name tags. Department of Justice representative Christy Lopez jumped on the issue in a recent public meeting saying, “That’s a problem. We need to fix that.” A police wife told us that officers agree they should not be anonymous, but said they`ve lately faced extreme circumstances that have caused some to remove their name tags at times.
The police wife said officers have been, “screamed at by protestors, “we`re going to go to your house. We`re going to rape your wives then we`re going to kill them and we`re going to kill your children” and this is being screamed at them in the presence of Department of Justice agents.”
Those agents said a name tag is non-negotiable, regardless of the threat.
At a public meeting Christy Lopez said, “Especially when it`s tense.”
The police wife said DOJ agents are “not there to guide, they`re there to harm.”
She says a DOJ rep. criticized an officer who said he was afraid for his family. The police wife explained, “The person was told, by the Department of Justice agent, if they`re afraid of the citizens of Ferguson, they shouldn`t be police.”
Yet Federal Agents appeared to be afraid when they called Ferguson police for help. An incident report, obtained by Fox 2, reveals a series of tense moments on September 25th. DOJ was meeting inside a business when a 911 call revealed subjects “stopping at (that business).” Then another 911 call describes “DOJ inside coffee house, requesting escort out of building.” Fox4
For a president to toss aside such deep traditions of governance is a radical, imprudent step. When a president in day-to-day operations can decide which laws to enforce and which to ignore, where are the limits on his power? Where are the checks and balances so carefully constructed in the Constitution?
If a Democratic president can cancel existing laws on immigration, what is to prevent the next Republican from unilaterally canceling laws on health care?
A bad way to start with new Congress
Coming on the heels of midterm elections that were a clear call for a change of course in Washington, starting in the White House, this is also a discouraging way to open the final years of this presidency. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll finds that by 53-40%, Americans feel positive about the election results; by 56-33%, they want Congress to set policy for the country, not the President; by 57-40% they favor a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants but by 42-32%, they disapprove of Obama overhauling immigration through executive order. Why isn't the White House listening to the public?
In retrospect, it would have been far better if coming out of the elections, the President had said he had promised he would act through executive order before the end of the year, but in light of the election results, he would work with the new Congress for six months. If there were no legislation, he would act on his own.
That would have been a much fairer proposition, would have started out with Republicans on better footing, and would have rallied the public behind him if the GOP refused to cooperate.
Sadly, we instead have an action from the White House that will cast a dark shadow over prospects for legislative cooperation, falls short of what the immigrant population had hoped and steers us into deep, unknown waters in our governance.
The White House has repeatedly pointed to immigration-related executive orders issued by past presidents, notably Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, to support the legality of President Obama's order and to palliate its partisan sting.
Both the executive orders cited, however, can be distinguished from the case at hand. Reagan granted amnesty to 100,000 undocumented immigrants to close a loophole in the comprehensive immigration reform bill passed in 1986.
Bush's order, which granted amnesty to at most 1.5 million people (although the actual number who benefited is likely much smaller), also attempted to clean up a piece of legislation. As Mark Krikorian writes in National Review, the Reagan and Bush examples were presidents trying to implement congressional directives, as is constitutionally permissible, whereas the current action is the President telling Congress "I'm going to implement my own directives."
While the President's impatience is understandable and his anger at Republican intransigence is well placed, that does not justify an abandonment of traditional ways of addressing hard public problems.
Against the spirit of the Constitution
One can argue whether this executive order is legal, but it certainly violates the spirit of the founders. They intentionally focused Article One of the Constitution on the Congress and Article Two on the president. That is because the Congress is the body charged with passing laws and the president is the person charged with faithfully carrying them out.
In effect, the Congress was originally seen as the pre-eminent branch and the president more of a clerk. CNN
