I’m So Damned Tired Of This

The news brings word that the grand jury will be making its decision today. Everyone expects a no-bill and everyone expects a riot.

Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights and stocking up on riot gear to prepare for a grand jury’s decision about whether to charge a white police officer who fatally shot a black 18-year-old in suburban St. Louis.

The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial for the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.

Police and protesters have repeatedly clashed since the shooting, which prompted a national conversation about race and police tactics. Images of officers in riot gear and armored vehicles confronting protesters have drawn widespread criticism.

Many protesters want Darren Wilson indicted for murder. Grand jury proceedings are secret, but legal analysts say recently leaked information about Wilson’s testimony to investigators may be an attempt to prepare the public for the possibility that he might not be charged.

The decision could be made public within the next month.

In the meantime, law officers have adjusted their tactics for interacting more peacefully with protesters while also honing their procedures for quick, widespread arrests. They plan to have a large contingent of officers at the ready, but have been meeting with clergy, community leaders and students in hopes of building relationships that could ease tensions on the streets.

I’m just so damned tired of catering to these savages. Instead of spending millions to make sure the gentle little snowflakes rioting in the streets don’t get their “rights” violated, how about we stand up for civilization for a change. Let everyone in Ferguson know that their little slice of heaven will be sealed off before the announcement. You can riot your brains out, but no one is coming in or out. No one will come in to put out fires, tend to the injured, deliver food, fix a broken pipe, etc.

Once the rioting ends, the siege will be lifted.

  1. heh, might as well call it a lost cause. Shop owners should just leave and never come back. Let them subsist on government cheese for awhile and barter for Kools menthol’s with what they can steal from each other.

  2. I say Egg ’em on.

    When the riots start, throw eggs. Also water balloons. Show ’em that we take their 80 IQ antics seriously.

  3. And just as soon as the rioting stops….
    The shovel ready, minimum wage, “infrastructure”, union free, employment office will open.
    “Special” consideration will be given to those “suddenly” able to produce ID suitable for voting in National Elections.
    Wonder how well “outsiders” will be “tolerated” then?

  4. The checks are a bribe to keep them from rioting. If they can’t keep to the deal, if they are going to riot anyway, cut them off. And yes, seal them off as well.

  5. If I were to hang fifty thousand people and it were to mark a great change for the better, they would almost without exception be Caucasian, have 1.2 children, and a masters degree.

    The first thing I would do, and perhaps the only thing, is stop sending the checks. Idleness is more destructive than any other human condition. Rich and poor.
