STL RAMS FANS CONFRONT FERGUSON


GIVE ME BACK THAT STOLEN FLAG!

Some St. Louis Rams fans have had enough of the Ferguson protesters.  Protesters were outside the Edward Jones Dome at the intersection of Broadway and Cole Street in St. Louis.

While some protesters did march peacefully, a handful of others were there to intimidate and spark confrontations with fans as they left the game between the Rams and Seahawks Sunday October  19th.   The protesters only interested in stirring the pot of racial and violent reaction were not disappointed.   There were reported incidents of fans and protesters spitting on one another; of course each side blaming the other.

Protesters intimidated by shouting and getting in the faces of some fans.   One fan angered by the American flag being flown upside down, grabbed the flag and ran.   Protesters caught up with the flag rescuer only to wrestle for its possession.   Punches were thrown during some of the struggles and two individuals are sporting black eyes this morning.  Two arrests were made, one of a female protester wearing a black tee-shirt with F_ _ K THE COPS on the front.   Really a nice demonstration  for children to see while attending a sporting event!!!   This only shows the stupidity of some and where this come.

THIS IS NO LONGER ABOUT MICHAEL BROWN

  1. Congrats on your win over the Seahawks! We got smacked down last night.

    I have to say I agree it is no longer about Michael Brown if it ever really was. He was the spark but obviously nobody is seeking justice that is protesting and intimidating.They are exhibiting lawlessness and though they may want to live that way, at some point the good people are going to decide enough is enough. Then things will go south really fast. It is disgusting these idiots have carried on so long but whats worse is how the local and state government have allowed it to continue.

  2. I am sick and tired of the mendacious coverage about Ferguson. I live in Dogtown, St Louis, but I have friends in Ferguson and I went to see them two weeks ago on my way to Paul’s Market(the best meat market in St Louis area in my opinion).

    The streets are lined with I Love Ferguson signs. The local property owners are making a valid statement that all of Ferguson is not involved in the race riots and they do not want to see their property values go down. Most of Ferguson is made up of beautiful tree lined streets with nice houses on big lots. Nice houses owned by taxpayers that work and pay their taxes that support the schools and city services for everyone, regardless of race, religion, or country of origin. That never gets covered in the news.

    So now the next assault by the out-of-town agitators is that the We Love Ferguson signs are examples of racism. The true definition of racism is when a member of one race views the member of another race as inferior. That definition has been diluted by the socialists and leftists so far that is just something one is accused of to throw them off guard.

    Sorry, I do not buy it. The Federal and State government is slowly leaking information from the Grand Jury, FBI, and Justice Department alleging that the testimony of witnesses, ballistic reports, and DNA does not prove the police officer was guilty of denying the alleged perpetrator his civil rights or police brutality so the Grand Jury will not convict. They are leaking this information to try and deflate an incendiary situation where mostly outside agitators want to promote violent protests. The protesters(not all) but the ones most vocal call for the rape of white women(see rapper at SLU), destruction of white peoples property, and a full scale revolt by blacks against whites, for social justice.

    I am sick and tired of all of these threats so bring it on. I am sick of the fact that I had to pay out of state tuition to educate my three sons in North Carolina, Missouri(I was a resident of Illinois at the time), and Arizona. I had to pay a premium because I owned my home, made too much money, and all the while illegals get in school for no cost when they cannot speak fluent English and my sons are shuffled to the back of the admissions line because they are white. Forget merit, hard work, good grades, no it is skin color. Then apply for a job or bid on a contract and X amount are set aside for non-whites to make up for grievances 150 years old.

    I am sick and tired of this Malarkey and I do protest. I want an apology from all these grievance mongers and I will boycott all of their festivals, events, rallies, and other hoop-la until I can walk safely down any Martin Luther King Boulevard in the USA at midnight on Friday night.

    That’ll be the day.

    1. Hello Rick, I enjoyed reading your comments on the events occurring in Ferguson. I too am tired of the mendacious coverage about the Ferguson events. Although I have never been to Ferguson, I imagine there are some beautiful and idyllic homes and very conscientious property owners. From the videos, I have seen regarding the police shootings in both Ferguson and St. Louis a week later, the police in your communities are totally out of control. Yet, this does not excuse the violent and disruptive actions of the protestors. As the saying goes, two wrongs never make right.

      There is something greatly wrong when according to you; the Federal and State governments are leaking information from a supposedly secret grand jury. It would appear that if they determine Brian Wilson was justified in murdering Michael Brown, your entire community could erupt in a horrendous race riot, where everyone will lose. Have you considered that perhaps this is the hidden agenda some of your State officials as well as som our Federal officials?

      Rick, what do you mean when you said, “I am sick and tired of all of these threats so bring it on?” Is this your way of throwing fuel on a potential conflagration? I can appreciate your frustration at having to pay out of state tuition to educate your three sons while you believe “illegals” are recipients of preferential treatment. I am in total agreement that this is an insult to all Americans and our government is guilty of discriminatory practices against all American citizens.

      I am in total agreement with your intent to boycott further protests in your community. I too, know how hypocritical it is for the protestors to expend their efforts on the murder of Michael Brown, when you and I both would be in danger of walking down any Martin Luther King Boulevard in the USA at midnight on Friday night.

      Please be mindful that honesty is the prerequisite for change. “Our Country Tis of Thee” has a history of prejudicial treatment towards our Black African American citizens, and these discriminatory actions are continuing to occur. Our beloved country is complicit in pitting our White American citizens against our Black African American citizens in an effort to keep us blind to how both of our races are the victims.

      Our government can spend billions and even trillions of dollars providing financial and military aid to foreign countries, while our own citizens are struggling to remain one-step above homelessness. Instead of being angry with the peaceful protestors, I encourage you to realize that you must focus your anger and indignation onto the true perpetrators of injustice-our elected officials. My Dear Brother, I implore you to stop playing the role of a pawn in this chess game. In fact, let us both decide that we are not the enemy of each other. The real enemy is the politicians that we elect repeatedly to vote against our best interests.

      1. It has not been determined that Michael Brown was murdered. Officer Darren Wilson may very well have been defending himself. The Grand Jury will determine if there is to be an indictment. It won’t come from protesters making a demand for his neck.

      2. Thank you very much for taking the time to respond. Personal issues delayed my replying until now. You are correct that the Grand Jury has not officially determined if they will indict Officer Darren Wilson for Michael Brown’s murder. Should they not rule against him; that only means that he will not be held accountable for his actions. The Prosecutor’s decision to prosecute will be determined by how he presents the information to the members of the Grand Jury. Should the prosecutor not want to prosecute Officer Wilson, then his presentation will be biased in that direction. Whatever the outcome, the reality still exists-at the time of his execution, Michael Brown did not pose a threat to Officer Wilson.

      3. I take issue with the term execution, though I can see where its use could garner some sort of reaction from readers, especially if they are sympathetic to the pro Michael brown theory. You were not present for the incident and thus there is no way you can know if Michael Brown posed a threat to the police officer or not. I find the way in which you use the word “execution” to be irresponsible. and your statements regarding the threat situation to be of your own making and something that at this point does not seem to meet the few facts we do know about the tragedy. Of course you rightly are welcome to your own opinion, and version, but truth should be the only thing that really matters at this point.

      4. Dear Mr. Jerry Smith,

        I would like to clarify my earlier comments and answer some of your concerns about my posted comments as part of a civil conversation.

        The leak from Federal and State agencies is not according to me, but rather an articles stating such in The New York Times and the St Louis Post-Dispatch. I have no contacts at the DOJ, FBI, or the Grand Jury. I just read the news.

        We do not know whether the officer murdered Michael Brown or killed him in self-defense while carrying out his duties as a law enforcement officer. It is a felony to assault a law enforcement officer and the officer is charged with pursuing and neutralizing the alleged threat by law.

        Yes, I believe the leaks are well orchestrated in an attempt to diffuse the situation and avoid further riots. Drip, drip, drip, come the leaks everyday that the officer will not be indicted. St Louis news covers this everyday and now the autopsy results are being leaked.

        I am not trying to incite any violence towards people or property, but my area has been threatened. Watch the video of the protestor at St Louis University rapping about how he wants to rape white girls. My girlfriend works two blocks from SLU. How about cussing and spitting in the face of a Ram’s fan at last week’s game. Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention the Missouri State Senator that showed up in Ferguson with a gun and drunk. She was arrested, but not before threatening that if the officer is not indicted the result will be new riots that make the old ones look like a picnic. Her words, not mine. These sound like threats to me and property taxes will rise to pay for all the extra police and insurance premiums will go up. That impacts me directly.

        I am not angry with any peaceful protestors nor am I a pawn. I am a realist and this is not a game. I made it through a protest by the non-peaceful Weathermen while in service in 1971. My business office was in the ‘Loop’ during the social unrest of the late 1970’s, and I survived by being aware of my surroundings and avoiding troubled areas even when I was rescued by vigilantes from a robber that meant me harm right in broad daylight at 53 W. Jackson Blvd. Those things stick in your mind and I will survive this.

        My last comment is that I think you interpreted my comment to ‘bring it on’ as a call to a physical fight. I have not been in a physical fight since 8th grade in 1966. Since then I fight my battles the old-fashioned American way, with lawyers and civil lawsuits. I am not your enemy.

      5. Hello Mr. Nelson,
        Thank you very much for taking time to respond to my post. Personal issues delayed my replying to you until now. I appreciate your engaging in a “civil conversation” with me, as it is my desire to also engage in a “civil conversation” with you. Sir, reading your reply prompted me to do further research on St. Louis and Ferguson, which I encourage you to read on my blog (http://itsstilltime.wordpress.com/).
        Mr. Nelson, I too have read similar articles regarding leaks and my question is how is it possible for a “secret grand jury” to have leaks? I also read that their ruling will not be revealed until sometime in January, in hopes that the cold weather will prevent any protests.
        I reached my conclusion that Officer Wilson committed murder when he executed Mr. Michael Brown after reviewing all of the public information that I had available to me. I spent over six years working in state prisons as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. During my employment, I had access to all legal documents of inmates on my caseload. Sir, I know murder when I see it, regardless the Grand Jury ruling.
        I am sharing my reply to Mr. Luttrell with you: You are correct that the Grand Jury has not officially determined if they will indict Officer Darren Wilson for Michael Brown’s murder. Should they not rule against him; that only means that he will not be held accountable for his actions. The Prosecutor’s decision to prosecute will be determined by how he presents the information to the members of the Grand Jury. Should the prosecutor not want to prosecute Officer Wilson, then his presentation will be biased in that direction. Whatever the outcome, the reality still exists-at the time of his execution, Michael Brown did not pose a threat to Officer Wilson.

        Mr. Nelson I am well aware that it is a felony to interfere with the lawful duties of a law enforcement official. I am also aware that law enforcement officials must not shoot unarmed citizens who are no longer posing a threat. I will gladly watch your referenced video regarding the protestor “rapping” about wanting to rape White girls. Anyone “rapping” about wanting to rape any woman (or man) is unacceptable. Will you also send me the links to the other references you made?
        Law enforcement has a long history of planting rabble-rousers in highly volatile situations to escalate the situations. The FBI did it in Memphis with Dr. Martin Luther King, as well as numerous other times with their “CO-INTEL-PRO” actions, which I am sure you are knowledgeable having experience with the “Weathermen.” I congratulate you on your military service, as I too am a Vietnam era veteran, with similar knowledge of the “Weathermen” as well as the social unrest of the 60s.
        Mr. Nelson, it is incumbent on our generation (you and I) to put a halt to all of this race-baiting and racial unrest, because we as military veterans as well as veterans of the 60s must know better. As long as America remains split along racial lines, the “fat cats” will continue dominating all of us. Remember, united we stand and divided we will all fall.
        With All Respect,
