Two police officers shot in Ferguson, Missouri, after chief quitsThe entire demeanor of Ferguson, Missouri is that of inversion of logic and complete loss of rationality. If I were a Ferguson cop, I would long have been an ex-Ferguson cop. In Ferguson, "justice" is whatever the crowd demands; further, that is backed up by the racist US Department of Justice, which serves only to incite more insanity. Perhaps a Berlin-type wall should be built around that part of Ferguson which hates their own cops, and be left abandoned to their riot-type of "justice".
(Reuters) - Two police officers were shot during a protest outside Ferguson, Missouri, police headquarters early on Thursday, police said, just hours after the city's police chief quit following a damning U.S. Justice Department report into his force.
The shooting of the officers, who were in serious condition at a hospital, was the latest incident in months of turmoil in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, which has been at the center of an intense national debate over police use of force, particularly against black men, since a white officer killed an unarmed black teenager there in August.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar told reporters early on Thursday that a 41-year-old officer from his department was struck in the shoulder and a 32-year-old officer from the nearby Webster Groves Police Department was hit in the face about midnight as the crowd was starting to break up.
"These police officers were standing there and they were shot, just because they were police officers," Belmar said. "I have said all along that we cannot sustain this forever without problems."
He said the officers, whom he did not identify, were both conscious and hospitalized. The department planned to release more information at 9 a.m. CDT (0800 DST).
As for the USDOJ report, I don't believe anything that comes out of Holder's racist system. Holder et. al. have turned the DOJ into an arm of racist insurrection against actual justice, and like all of Obama's administration, they lie with every breath. If there is one thing that Obama has accomplished it is that it can be said with conviction that whatever any agency or agent claims, the opposite is the truth.
