  •  There are molotov cocktails and gunshots (16+ / 0-)

    happening in some places and peaceful demonstrations in others.  I fear the police will open fire if one is shot.

    Antonio said the police were arresting him and minsters last night, the peacemakers.  

    This is not because of some conspiracy, but because these are mostly police from suburbs who are untrained for days of this.  This is not just Ferguson police, but police from various municipalities, some of which are extremely low crime areas.  

    The City of St, Louis police would be better trained for this, but I do not think they are there.  

    As bad as some of the police actions have been, so far they have not killed a demonstrator.  I pray that continues.  I fear that something really bad is going to happen.

    One cop shot there (and there has been gunfire) and all hell may break lose.  

    County Exec Dooley, Congressman Clay, and others need to be up there.  There need to be peacemakers among the cops.  They need to back off on tactics.  

    They left a peaceful demonstration alone across from the police station.   They need to do more of that.  

    I fear a massacre, a Kent State.  But it can be prevented.

    This is becoming the story rather than Micheal Brown.
