Obama decries excessive force against Missouri police shooting protesters
President Obama stepped into a racially charged police shooting in Missouri on Thursday, calling on local police to show restraint with demonstrators as Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. criticized the authorities’ military-style tactics and Gov. Jay Nixon ordered state police to take over security in the roiling town of Ferguson.
“We all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority,” Mr. Obama said in his first televised remarks about the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white policeman in the predominantly black town of Ferguson, Missouri.
The president said there is “no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights.” He scolded police for their tactics, reminding officers that they work “here in the United States of America.”
“Police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs,” Mr. Obama said. “Now’s the time for healing. Now’s the time for peace and calm on the streets of Ferguson.”
It’s the third time Mr. Obama has weighed in on a high-profile law enforcement incident involving race. Following the 2012 shooting death of black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida, the president said the victim “could have been me 35 years ago”; and in 2009 he accused police of “acting stupidly” when they arrested black Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates outside his home.
Later Thursday, there were further demonstrations in Ferguson, though with a very different-looking police presence, and a number of solidarity rallies were held around the country, including moment-of-silence gatherings in more than 90 cities.
After four nights of violent confrontations between protesters and police firing tear gas and deploying armored vehicles and officers in body armor and camouflage, Mr. Obama conferred with Mr. Holder from the president’s vacation spot in Martha’s Vineyard.
The nation’s top law enforcement official then told police that he was “deeply concerned” about their use of military equipment in an episode that is raising broader concerns about the post-9/11 arsenals of local police departments.

I am so fed up with black officials (Obama, Holder, Jackson Jr, and Sharpton) finding a microphone and admonishing white folks for something which blacks started. Before I get into Obama’s words, I ask you, how many times have blacks demonstrated aggressively, looted, started fires, overturned cars, attacked innocent white people because they feel some black was treated unfairly?
Then it is discovered later the black “innocent” victim was not so damn innocent after all. Blacks use incidents like the one in Ferguson to steal from stores, to act like ignorant African savages, to harm whites, to start fires, to act just like stupid idiots who have brains smaller than a rainbow trout.
I saw one little black girl holding a sign that read, “Killer cops has got to go.” HAS got to go. Born in the U.S.A., raised in the U.S.A., schooled in the U.S.A., and they still cannot speak their language with any resemblance of intelligence. For those of you who do not understand what the problem is with the sentence in quotes above, I’ll be happy to explain it for you.
“HAS” is for singular use. For more than one (plural), the word “has” is conjugated to “have”. Since the sign reads, “cops”, that implies more than one cop (plural). Therefore, people, the word must be “have” not “has”. And don’t give me any Ebonics bullshit!
That’s your English lesson for today.
Now, as far as “riot” gear goes, I’m sure the police were afraid of suffering some injuries in the violent riot, so they donned riot gear. I mean, it WAS a riot, right? So, what’s wrong with wearing riot gear to protect oneself?
Instead of admonishing the police, Obama, who is half black, should be admonishing the blacks for acting like violent jackasses for rioting and looting. I’m sure the police would not have a problem with peaceful protests, but start throwing rocks, Molotov cocktails, looting stores, and attacking innocent people, what do you expect the police to do? Spread out a blanket and have a picnic?
I believe the claim by blacks that the police officer just boldly shot the kid while the kid had his hands up and was getting down onto the street is a blatant bovine defecation lie. Why, then, did the police officer have to be taken to the hospital for facial injuries? Because he could not control his firearm and it recoiled onto his face several times?
A similar issue surrounded Trayvon Martin. He was initially portrayed to be an innocent sweet kid, but it turned out the truth was ole Trayvon had been expelled from school for using/selling drugs, had assaulted a bus driver, wore his pants below his butthole, and displayed gang signs on Facebook. He wasn’t the sweet angel the blacks and liberal Media tried to “sell”.
Had the African-Americans in Ferguson chose to protest peacefully, I’m sure the police would still don their riot gear, but would do so as a precaution.
And Eric Holder (the dishonest piece of cow dung he is) said there was no excuse for using military-style tactics. Well, to protect oneself from rioting black savages, I say the military-style tactics are justified.
Obama said, . . .“no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests. . .”. Agreed! But the police DID NOT confront peaceful protests. The police confronted violent, angry, hateful, dangerous mobs hell-bent on harm and destruction.
This admonishing of whites by black officials every time some “innocent” black has a confrontation with whitey is nothing more than racial bullshit.
Those “officials” need to admonish the black community for acting like mindless zombies out for a night of terror, violence, and destruction.
If the blacks put an end to this egregious behavior, I’m sure the police, eventually, will find military-style tactics not necessary.
You just don’t see Caucasians, Hispanics, or Asians acting stupid like blacks. Why is that? Perhaps those three races are a helluva lot more civilized? Because those three races have been out of the jungle for a lot longer? Because those three races are not as ignorant? Hispanics are certainly a bellicose race and pugnacious, but, still, they don’t riot like these black “Americans”.
So, Obama, Holder, Jackson Jr, and Sharpton—admonish the black community for their behavior, too, not just the Caucasians or—how about shoving that microphone where the sun never shines?
