What’s the best way to end civil unrest? Malign the citizens.
What we are seeing now in Ferguson, Mo. is laughable at best. The latest tactic that is being used by the police goes a little something like this:
"These lootings, robbings and clashes with police are being done by a minority of protestors. Mainly protestors from out of town who are here to incite and steal."
You see if this is the official police stance then, quite naturally and from here on out, ANYONE who is arrested, shot by the police/national guard or, imprisoned HAS TO BE an anarchist who is trying to rile up the protesters to foment more destruction in Ferguson. That’s right, any and all crimes committed forthwith can be - and will be - attributed as such
What this basically means is that ANY protestors caught not obeying simple police orders will now be classified as anti-establishment extremists who want law and order to crumble.
What a crock.
The simple fact of the matter is that police presence in Ferguson has done nothing except irritate the problem. In the first few days of the rioting, we all saw that police were not allowing simple and peaceful protests. They also were not allowing camera and news crews to film. They also tear gassed innocent people not involved with the protesters. Basically, they used force when it didn’t require it. So fucking retarded and useless were the police that Ferguson had to ask for police help from neighboring cities! Oh yeah, I almost forgot, they also implemented a curfew, that became utterly useless and was lifted 24 hours later. And then, to really show the ineptitude of the PD, the Governor had to call in the National Guard…to protect the police. What a joke.
So now that the authorities have realized that the mob owns the day, it’s time to slander and blight the mob. And while many people will look at the goings-on in Mo. and have proper contempt for what is happening there, I however, see this as a turning point for the American citizenry. For the first time in a long while, we see what happens when We The People stand against the police state. While the people may be out-gunned, the fact remains that the police are out-numbered and that fact in and of itself is proof enough for the citizens of Ferguson or Anytown, USA, to feel proud about.
Indeed, had the vast majority of the citizens of Ferguson been armed, the police would never have stood a chance. Think about it: if an unarmed mob was able to make the police succumb to it’s pressure imagine what the citizenry could have done if they had firepower. Overnight, the people could’ve taken control of their own destiny. But, alas, Ferguson is located in St. Louis County, 1 of the 3 counties that voted for Obama in 2012, so as loyal democrats they have all been fed from the liberal progressive trough. As such, these are the voters that believe in gun-control and that “only the police should have guns,” how’s that ideology working out for you know residents of Ferguson?
The fact of the matter is that this new militarized police force that we are seeing on our TV screens is proof enough for a legally armed populace. The people will always out-number the police, the question is, when will the police realize that the people can also out-gun them?
