#Ferguson Stories and Videos from the StLouis Locals

Collection of news and information resulting out of the shooting of Mr Mike Brown by the Ferguson Police Department in Ferguson, MO 8-10-1-14

See the Activities, links, first hand accounts, videos, twitter, reddit, local news stations, youtube, anonymous, Family, Law Enforcement, NAACP, and anything else I could find before it gets removed, lost, or changed via the Internet Police and the Media Empire.

It all started when the Fam and I were sitting around eating an angel food birthday cake and this strange report comes over the News 4 broadcast- Ferguson Police Shoot Unarmed Man- RIOT Ensues-  I immediately jumped online and went to Twitter.

 I know from past emergencies that Twitter has reported the news before the tv stations get in their vans-@StLHandyMan

I'd also like to point out:
Just because a #Ferguson witness doesn't talk "white" enuff for you does not mean that they are Lying. Scotty

                                          I've lived in the hoods and
                                          understand a majority of the
                                          slang terms for those that
                                          don't try: BlackRefer  or
                                                                       Ghetto Slang Dictionary

Here's where it all starts

Here's how it all started- View the Video from QTrip that was just released 12:48 pm 8/15/2014 Ferguson police release convenience store surveillance video : News

Things went downhill from there as the Peaceful protest turned into a Riot which targeted the Quicktrip, Walmart, Walgreens, Zisser Tire, Autozone, and many local businesses. 

Swat Teams at Walgreens 

I found it odd that 49 years ago today the Watts Riot started August 11, 1965.  Is this history repeating itself again I wonder?

Local Community Leaders respond by creating #FarmedUprising

I realized yesterday that I couldn't keep up with all the Ferguson activities.  I'm changing my tactics to promote peace and will only be posting only positive messages and news from the Mike Brown incident.

8/14/2014 New Crowd Control Police Chief from the Missouri Highway Department- Captain Ron Johnson was brought in as a replacement for the Prior St Louis County Sheriff-Chief Jackson for crowd control.
Chief Jacks has also been criticized by the World on his mishandling of the Events.

It was advertised that the new leader is from and was raised in the Ferguson area.  Everything I have seen from him makes me believe that he was the missing link that was needed to calm the community in this time of turmoil.  He's done a few things differently check out how peaceful the protesters are now.

He boasted, at the news conference that there would be no tear gas used against the protesters.

8/15/2014 - The new day brought the first un-eventful night of protests along with the Ferguson County Police Chief Jackson  announcing that the Officer involved in the shooting of Mike Brown is Darren Wilson.

The Missouri Governor also gave a speech reflecting

8/15/14 New Video Added of what I believe is eyewitness testimony heard in the background of the video.

8/16/14  There were many positive actions in the community over night, three of which jump out to me as worthy of attention for the :

positive actions of the Residents of Ferguson, MO.

  • Non Violent Protesters attempt to keep Looters from pillaging the local store.  

Ferguson Resident Explains why he is Protecting the Store

Our Missouri Governor Mr Jay Nixon also declared Martial Law

 Gov Nixon:

  • The governor has declared a state of emergency for Ferguson.
  • There is a 0000-0500 curfew in effect, so midnight-5am is now a no-go for protests or being out on the street in general.
  • Police are establishing a media staging area to get press credentials and allow them in/out access of the emergency zone.

From my twitter feed:


For those who aren't from the StLouis area who might not know about all the lack of jobs in the Area.  There is finally some help or at least recognition for the unemployed.  (This action was started by Mayor Slay who is the Mayor of StLouis which is not Furgeson, but to me all part of StLouis.)

Attorney General Statement on Latest Developments in Federal Civil Rights Investigation in Ferguson, MO
Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement Monday following his briefing of President Obama on the latest developments in the federal civil rights investigation in Ferguson, Missouri:

“As I informed the President this afternoon, the full resources of the Department of Justice are being committed to our federal civil rights investigation into the death of Michael Brown.

“During the day today, more than 40 FBI agents continued their canvassing of the neighborhood where Michael Brown was shot. As a result of this investigative work, several new interviews have already been conducted.

“Moreover, at my direction, an additional medical examination is being performed on the body of Michael Brown. This autopsy is being performed today by one of the most experienced medical examiners in the United States military. I am confident this additional autopsy will be thorough and aid in our investigation.

“In addition to updating the President on these developments, I informed him of my plan to personally travel to Ferguson Wednesday. I intend to meet with FBI investigators, and prosecutors on the ground from the Civil Rights Division and U.S. Attorney’s Office officials about the ongoing investigation.

“I realize there is tremendous interest in the facts of the incident that led to Michael Brown’s death, but I ask for the public’s patience as we conduct this investigation. The selective release of sensitive information that we have seen in this case so far is troubling to me. No matter how others pursue their own separate inquiries, the Justice Department is resolved to preserve the integrity of its investigation. This is a critical step in restoring trust between law enforcement and the community, not just in Ferguson, but beyond.

“In order to truly begin the process of healing, we must also see an end to the acts of violence in the streets of Ferguson. Those who have been peacefully demonstrating should join with law enforcement in condemning the actions of looters and others seeking to enflame tensions.

“To assist on this front, the Department will be dispatching additional representatives from the Community Relations Service, including Director Grande Lum, to Ferguson. These officials will continue to convene stakeholders whose cooperation is critical to keeping the peace. Furthermore, as the President has announced, Ron Davis, our Director of the COPS office, will arrive on the ground in Ferguson Tuesday. Ron has been in touch with local and state officials since last week, providing technical assistance on crowd control techniques and facilitating communications between Missouri officials and other law enforcement officials whose communities have faced similar challenges in the past.”
Attorney General

8/19/2014 Peaceful Protest till about Midnight, Police arrest more people and it turns out that most of the agitators who are arrested are not from Ferguson and have motives that aren't necessarily what is best for the area.

When my girl seen this photo she asked, " Are they using Flame Throwers on the Protesters now"  (This is a muzzle flash and not a flame thrower.)

Grand Jury convened to start the trial today in Clayton Missouri amid the protesters who voice their opinion that the Pros Atty  Bob McCulloch is not Fair and ImPartial.

10:49 am from Reddit StLouis Feed by the redditor (unbiased reporting of the events in Ferguson and the StLouis community)

Additional Sound Footage added in the Mike Brown Case
The audio allegedly includes the gunshots fired during the shooting. A lawyer for a Ferguson resident said her client recorded the audio while video chatting with a friend. In the audio, you can hear a series of gunshots fired, then a brief pause, followed by another round of shots. "It's not just the number of gunshots but how they were fired that has a huge relevance on how this case might turn out," said attorney Lopa Blumenthal.

  1. Many of these Ferguson Activists have mysteriously died in suspicious activities since this debacle happened.
