  •  Two people were shot (not by police). There (10+ / 0-)

    was more looting, vandalism and Molotov cocktails. This was about an hour or two before the curfew went into effect tonight.

    Cap. Johnson held a press conference within the hour and apologized for the actions of a few miscreants who wanted to destroy.

    How do you contain these people who are bent on causing trouble. They're like misbehaving kids in a classroom who spoil it for all the other kids who want to learn.

    This group spoiled it for the good people of Furguson.

    It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.

      like more white, privileged tsk-tsking. This situation has spiraled well beyond the time when that is appropriate or helpful.

        of the "molotov cocktail" fantasy.

        Yeah, fantasy.  That whole arc of the storyline has yet to be backed up with anything other than random words. No links, no pics, no police reports--nothing, nada, zip, zilch.

              •  Of course! (0+ / 0-)
                Don't know whether it's there, I heard him report it
                It's considered credible to go back and listen to "the video" you reference vaguely, and then convey to the readers (via the approximate time-stamp) of exactly where in the video "it" is.

                If it's not there after all, that should be conveyed as well.
