I have read the target list the Michael Brown protesters, agitators made public. I realize that intimidation is a tactic often used by terrorists groups. That is what they are becoming or have become. Maybe they can still determine that by how they present themselves in the coming days. I don’t have confidence they will show much dignity however, and apparently neither does our Governor.
Protesters stated weeks ago if Darren Wilson was not arrested, rioting and looting to follow would be unlike anything seen in St. Louis, without any regards to the officer’s innocence or guilt. Recently, the protesters have stated “looting and violence can not be ruled out; that violence and looting is a tool for those without a voice.” So, that being said these disturbance agitators can be labeled as riot organizers. Protesting is one thing, anything beyond that with the “tools” they intend to use is rioting and criminal. Governor Nixon took their word for it, he doesn’t trust them…..and it is life and property he must protect, therefore he activated the National Guard. The organized agitators accuse the Governor of starting a war, with the show of that nasty word militarization. Really, what they want is a free gallop through the streets, looting, burning without interference. That shows the mentality of what we are dealing with.
Targeting companies, most of which are outside of Ferguson and have absolutely nothing to do with Michael Brown’ s death; is to prove what? Included on that list are hospitals, children’s hospitals as well. Targeting these establishments and institutions, especially where people are being cared for, with the threat of violence, that most certainly will start a war. Law enforcement and Guard members will be the least of the rioters concern. There is a population out there that will not put up with that and just stand by.
Once again, those stirring the pot over the flame are racial agitators from outside Ferguson, some from out-of-state. Their interest is to create further division between the races, to start a war. We are very close to having just that. There may be some short-term benefits that come out of this, but the long-term, nothing good will come from violence in our communities. This is no longer about Ferguson, all this for a scapegoat and vengeance.
