Cop Aims Gun at Local Official as Ferguson Resembles “War Zone”

120814copInfowars – by Paul Joseph Watson

Cops pointed guns at a St. Louis official and attempted to shut down the entire town during a second night of riots in Ferguson, Missouri last night in scenes that resembled a martial law takeover, with one police officer describing the area as a “war zone.”

The video, shot by Antonio French, Alderman of the 21st Ward, shows raucous protesters outside the QuickTrip store that was looted and set on fire on Monday night in response to the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.  

SWAT vehicles, LRAD sound cannons, dogs, tear gas and smoke grenades are all on show as police march down the highway shooting rubber bullets at demonstrators.

The video then cuts to a parking lot where police wearing riot gear with their faces covered order French to “get the f**k out of here.” One of the cops aims a gun directly at French.

According to French, police attempted to shut down the whole town in order to prevent the media from documenting events. Photographer David Carson also said that he was threatened with arrest and ordered to leave the scene.

Police used tear gas and rubber bullets in an effort to disperse the crowds while emergency services responded to reports of a stabbing and a shooting. 15 people were also arrested during a demonstration outside the town’s police station as other protesters chanted, “hands up, don’t shoot!”

One police officer described the area as a “war zone,” asserting that no one would be allowed to pass through until the morning.

L.A. Times reporter Matt Pierce said the scenes reminded him of the crackdown on protesters during the uprising in Egypt.

Police continue to assert that Michael Brown, who was unarmed, was shot dead after an altercation during which he attempted to seize an officer’s gun. However, eyewitnesses say that Brown did not try to enter a police vehicle and was holding his arms up in surrender during the incident.

  1. Shoot to Kill orders seem to be in order. Mayor Ronnie Thompson of
    Macon, Ga and Mayor Richard Daley issued these orders during riots
    in their cities and the riots came to a stand still.
    The cop was attacked by this thug as he had to go to the ER.

  2. This is so a live drill. Just look at how it is orchestrated and organized. Looks like a staged war zone.

    Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the banks are being robbed and because all of the police are on this side of town, there’s no one left to stop the looters from robbing those banks on the other side of town.

    Once again, these assholes never learn and continue to put all of their eggs in one basket.

    As I always say, “A warrior who only knows one side, leaves himself open for destruction.”
