Update at the end

A four-day series of events began on Friday, mostly planned by outright communists, socialists, anarchists and the usual cop haters. Participants included the same people who inflicted Occupy Wall Street on the country.
These are the groups our administration sympathizes with and hopes will succeed.
Some of the tweets via Pundit Press give a sense of how it’s going.
They also want to finish what Hitler began. Lovely people.
The events include old hippie Vietnam-era peace activists, New York City seminarians and hundreds of fast-food workers bused in from Chicago, Nashville and other cities marching alongside a smattering of local residents, spurred by the national campaign dubbed Ferguson October according to CBS News.
There were no more than 3,000 at the height of the crowd swell, even counting gang members.
The weekend was a combination of raucous rebellion and outright violence over the Michael Brown shooting by a white cop in August though nothing like the worst of the gang violence we’ve seen since the shooting.
At the Chaifetz Arena, the president of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Cornell William Brooks, gave a fiery speech in which he said, “Oh say, can you see Ferguson, Mo., transformed?
The youth were not impressed and began to shout: “Go to Canfield with that! We got revolutionaries out here [on the streets] starving!”
Pastor after preacher, rabbi after imam, told stories of solidarity, activism and racial injustice.
But when keynote speaker and noted black activist Cornel West finally arrived on the stage, he said he saw the writing on the wall. “I didn’t come here to give a speech,” he said. “I came here to go to jail!”
Early Sunday, 17 demonstrators did just that [More than 50 were arrested by the end of the day]. They were arrested in a sit-in outside a St. Louis QuikTrip.
Several protesters made their way to the south St. Louis neighborhood where another black 18-year-old, Vonderrit D. Myers, was killed by a white police officer recently. Protesters occupied a Quicktrip gas station convenience store and staged a sit-in.
CBS reported that St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson posted on Twitter that protesters were “attempting to storm” the business. He later posted that protesters were “throwing rocks at the police.”
Lesley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown said a prayer at Saturday’s evening rally, held in the St Louis suburb, where more than 1,000 people eventually gathered in protest against the recent police shootings.
In an open letter written by the demonstrators calling for people to support the four-day movement , the group – domestic terrorists themselves – claimed that that “here in Ferguson, our community has come to know terror on American soil”.
GotNews discovered that Ferguson media darling, Mustafa Hussein aka Theodore Barrett, a Muslim convert, was previously convicted of child molestation in Iowa. His victim was under the age of 13. Mustafa livestreams the Ferguson events/riots.
There is a heavy radical Muslim presence at these events.
The FergusonOctober radicals have been training youth and others to engage in non-violent confrontation with police for “Moral Monday”. The training is the same as the training for the Occupy Wall Street events.
Moral Mondays are not a novel concept. They were held in North Carolina last year. The protests are characterized by engaging in civil disobedience by entering the state legislature building and then being peacefully arrested. The movement protests many wide ranging issues under the blanket of unfair treatment, discrimination, and adverse effects of government legislation on the citizens,
These are typical communist PR stunts like we witnessed during Occupy Wall Street.
When they hold these events, they use them to gain publicity and new converts to their revolution though it’s all based on smoke and mirrors. The photos are all staged just as the violence with police is staged. They are antipolice and anti any authority figure.
This isn’t a sincere movement based on reality. It’s a contrived series of events to attack and demean police with the larger picture purposed to foment rebellion.
If we allow authority figures, and law enforcement in particular, to be treated without regard, it will signal the end of civilized society.
These people were raised to have no respect for authority which is why many are constantly in trouble with the law.

The ‘protesters’ showed up at an upscale mall, Plaza Frontenac, to terrorize shoppers, screaming at them about fighting for freedom which they already have. They were the commie-anarchist occupiers.
