  •  Johnson got stuff wrong (5+ / 0-)

    He said mcDonalds employees had to lock themselves in a storage room. He said the McDonalds was looted.

    Meanwhile, we have photos of the employees out front and milk being poured over the eyes of people gassed and no looting.

    Johnson is repeating what he is being told but his info sucks.

    •  Who is telling him all this shit, anyway? (1+ / 0-)

      I have yet to grasp that part with more than hearsay, whether CNN's or anyone on Twitter...

        He is probably getting reports and info from the cops at the front with the protestors. The same cops firing the tear gas at kids and threatening to kill reporters. They call back on their police radios that they see Molotov cocktails and looters breaking into the McDonalds and shots being fired and all that info gets rolled up into one report with no regard for accuracy or timing.

        Fog of war.

      I can't believe the racist authoritarian loving bs that's oozing from this site. where am I? going back to the Guardian where at least the concern troll bigots are few and far between. Law and Order? Whose out of order and beyond the law here hummm... This kind of resistance will continue as people across are tired of being oppressed and then when they protest having the goon squad's of militarized robo cop's move in and 'restore order'.

      Civil unrest occurs for a reason and bravo to the people in Ferguson for not just rolling over when one of their young men has been shot down in the street like a rabid dog for nothing but being black and not moving out of the street. Whose side are you on here? Do you not read or hear what is happening to African American communities  from coast to coast? There is no more law since our sick war on terra,  just militarized out of hand cops who now serve as judge's and executioner's and are immune to the consequences.
