Anonymous – #OpFerguson
Greetings world, we are Anonymous.
I was talking with a loved one about the past 30 days, the time since we first became aware of Eric Garner’s murder (July 17th, 2014) until last afternoon and the murder of Michael Brown….thrown in between those murders by the murder of John Crawford…..ALL by those with the motto “To Serve And Protect“….the Police. Law Enforcement. The Man.

Occupy Democrats Reports: Town Outraged After Unarmed Black Teen Shot by Police
From Associated Press:
Belmar said at a news conference Sunday morning that a Ferguson Police officer had an encounter with two people. He says one person allegedly pushed the officer back into patrol car and assaulted the officer.
He says there was a struggle over the officers’ weapon and one shot was fired in the car. The officer then got out of his vehicle and shot at “a subject.”
He says the man suffered more than a couple gunshots, but “not many more than that.”
About 200 people rallied Sunday morning outside of the Ferguson Police Department to protest Brown’s death. They chanted “we want answers” and “no justice, no peace.”
Thank you Associated Press.
THIS is the explanation given by Chief Jon Belmer of St. Louis County Missouri Police, where is Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson? Why Is Chief Jackson hiding?
Police: Black Teen Shot After Altercation
Published on Aug 10, 2014
A local police chief police says Saturday’s fatal shooting of a black teenager in suburban St. Louis, Missouri came after an altercation with police. The shooting has prompted protests, and the officer has been placed on administrative leave. (Aug. 10)
Why is Ferguson Police Chief of Ferguson Police officer who shot Michael Brown TEN times, not out front giving us an explanation why this murder took place? Why is this bogus explanation vastly different from several witnesses who were on scene….such as this…..
Witnesses tell News 4 that Mike Brown, 18, was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times by the a Ferguson police officer. Police have not confirmed those claims and they have not released any details of the incident other than an officer was involved and that he has been placed on administrative leave.
Dorian Johnson tells News 4 he was walking with Brown when the officer confronted them and drew his weapon:
“He (the officer) shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said Dorian Johnson, a friend Brown’s. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”
St. Louis County NAACP President Esther Haywood told News 4 that Brown was shot once by the officer and then an additional nine times as he lie in the street. Police have not confirmed that account.
SO, we’re to believe a caucasian police officer from the Ferguson Police department was doing a “George Zimmerman” and actually fighting for his life, aka George Zimmerman, as 18 year old Michael Brown attempted to take the police officer’s weapon away from him. Thus Michael Brown being shot once, maybe twice, but not the reported ten times….was justified. We are to believe the caucasian officer while eye witness Dorian Johnson tells News 4 he was walking with Brown when the officer confronted them and drew his weapon: “He (the officer) shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said Dorian Johnson, a friend Brown’s. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”
Michael Brown was college bound…..WAS college bound.
Now Michael Brown is a blood stain in the middle of a Ferguson, Missouri street
Mike Brown Shooting: Seeking Justice For Black Missouri Teen Killed By Ferguson Police, Facebook, Twitter Users Rally
Amid growing calls for justice, Internet and social media users are seeking answers as to why a black teenager was shot and killed by police near St. Louis on Saturday afternoon. The victim, who was reportedly unarmed, is being identified on social media as Michael Brown, 18, a recent high school graduate.
Authorities confirmed Brown was shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, a predominately African-American suburb of St. Louis. Few details of the shooting are currently known, but Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson told the AP a second person involved in the altercation is being questioned. As of yet, the person has not been arrested or charged.
Following news of the shooting, calls for justice spread quickly throughout the Internet on Saturday and continued into Sunday when Brown’s name trended on Twitter for several hours, along with hashtags such as #JusticeForMike. Several “Justice for Mike” pages popped up on Facebook as well, with one page amassing several hundred “likes” per hour as of Sunday afternoon. Another Facebook page had attracted nearly 4,000 likes before it was removed without explanation Sunday.
A photo of a man identified by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as Louis Head — Brown’s stepfather — was widely circulated on Twitter and Facebook Sunday. In it, the man is holding a sign that reads “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Brown was a 2014 graduate of Normandy High School and was scheduled to begin classes on Monday at Vatterott College career training institute. Shortly after the shooting, hundreds of outraged Ferguson residents spilled out of their apartments and confronted local authorities, shouting obscenities and threating comments like “kill the police.” About 100 protesters also gathered outside Ferguson police headquarters chanting, “No Justice! No Peace!” the Post-Dispatch reported.
John Gaskin, a member of the St. Louis County NAACP, likened the incident to the deaths of Trayvon Martin in Florida and Eric Garner in New York, the latter of whom died at the hands of the NYPD after an altercation in Staten Island last month. AP reported Gaskin said the FBI should intervene quickly to “protect the integrity” of the investigation into Brown’s death. “With the recent events of a young man killed by the police in New York City and with Trayvon Martin and with all the other African-American young men that have been killed by police officers … this is a dire concern to the NAACP, especially our local organization,” Gaskin said.
Justice For Michael Brown
A good personal loved one whom I follow in the bloggerspherem has decided to publish a post on the statistics of murder by law enforcement of Black people. Since I am lazy and dislike much research, as she encountered for her blog post, I am “Borrowing” her research…..please go visit her blog…..
Mothers of Black and Brown sons and even of Black and Brown daughters must caution their children to be wary on the streets of their neighborhoods. They must caution their children to be afraid of the police. They must be afraid each time their children go out to play, go to the store even go to school; they must be afraid their child may not return. Other mothers, an estimated five hundred (500) a year bury their children due to police violence; violence that is rarely prosecuted, frequently ignored by the press and all too often excused as ‘justified’.
Racism is not dead in this nation. Shame on any of us for trying to bury the inherent and blatant racism of the United States and its people, it has always been part of our makeup and it has come roaring back in its full and awful glory in the past decade, especially since the election of our current President. It did not start in 2007 with his win over John McCain though, it started emerging as accepted political and social fodder long before this, the best example is New York City and the Stop and Frisk policy initiated under Rudy Giuliani and escalated under Michael Bloomberg.
It seems instead of moving forward toward more acceptance of diversity within society we are reverting to our inglorious past of injustice, lynch mob mentality and criminalization based on melanoma content.
