‘Protests’ of the shooting of Michael Brown turned deadly last night in Ferguson, Missouri. (Surprise.) As we reported yesterday, protests started to become violent with the shooting of a man near the McDonalds in West Florissant. By Monday morning, one man had been shot and critically wounded after an exchange of gunfire with police.
Another shooting- a “friend of Michael Brown”
St. Louis County police released a statement on Monday morning, and stated that the suspect was one of at least two people who opened fire at around 11:15 p.m. along West Florissant Avenue. The police chief revealed that between 40 and 50 shots were fired in about 45 seconds.
An unmarked van the department was using turned on its emergency lights and “began moving toward the suspect.” The man, now identified as 18 year old Tyrone Harris, opened fire, causing damage to the police van. Police returned fire from the van, then chased him on foot. After gunfire was exchanged, the man was down. Officers were not injured.
The officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave per procedure. Harris is in critical and unstable condition, according to police on Monday.

A continuation of protests that aren’t really protests
“Protests” over the shooting of Michael Brown one year after the incident have gone on for three solid days. With police tied up trying to keep businesses from being destroyed, their own lives at stake, others have been beaten.
This tweet has a video showing a black group beating a white man at McDonalds… “for you Mike.” They looted, they attacked, all in the name of “Michael Brown.” But that is only an excuse, and has nothing whatsoever to do with anything.

The Big Lie
Looting stores, burning businesses, filling the country with hate… and they want everyone to bow down to their agenda? Getting along with your neighbors is one thing, becoming a victim is quite another. They are not interested in working together- they are only interested in taking over. Their rabid hatred has filled their lives with evil.
Not all black people are evil, we have many wonderful black friends who abhor violence and hate. These criminals are using protests as an excuse to riot, loot, and even kill. Police lives matter too. White lives matter too. And as long as people kowtow to this despicable behavior, it will only get worse.
