Ferguson riots: Clashes, looting in Missouri following vigil for teen shot dead by police



A day of protests and vigils Sunday over the death of Michael Brown, a black teenager who was killed following an altercation with a Ferguson police officer, turned violent overnight with reports of riots and looting.

#FergusonShooting: Outrage as Missouri police shoot and kill ‘unarmed’ black teen

A gathering of mourners at the shooting site Sunday night for Brown, 18, who was to begin his first day in college today, quickly turned violent as people struggled to understand how police could shoot an unarmed teenager in broad daylight.

"We are currently experiencing a riot," a Ferguson police dispatcher said.

The sound of gunfire was reported in the neighborhood late Sunday.

About 150 officers in riot gear from throughout St. Louis County, along with canine units and a SWAT team, were sent to the area, a dispatcher for the St. Louis County Police Department said.



There was no immediate word on injuries.

Although authorities are still investigating the incident, St. Louis Police Chief Jon Belmar said a struggle between Brown and a police officer ensued inside of a police cruiser.

"It is our understanding at this point in the investigation, that within the police car, there was a struggle over the officer's weapon," Belmar told a news conference on Sunday.

Ferguson police cars are not equipped with dash cameras, which would have proven valuable to investigators, nor are there surveillance cameras at the apartment complex where the incident occurred.

Police officials will be hard pressed to explain why the victim was reportedly shot eight times in the course of the altercation.

Brown's mother told local TV channel KSDK that her son was ready to go to college and was visiting his grandmother when the incident took place.

"He didn't bother nobody," she said. "They told me how many times my son was shot - eight," she added.

The officer involved in the incident, who has not been identified, has been described as a six-year veteran and has been put on administrative leave, Belmar told reporters.



The shooting has brought to the surface lingering tensions between “black residents of North County and a predominantly white Ferguson police force,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Meanwhile, officials have not disclosed the race of the police officer who killed Michael Brown.

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay tweeted Sunday saying he stands with County Executive Charlie Dooley in his call "for a full and open inquiry into yesterday's shooting in Ferguson."

Looting and rioting always solve the problem. And if it doesn't, at least you get free stuff.

It's a wonderful way to remember the shooting victim.

He was a good boy... All good boys are frequently placed in police cars when they are extra-good citizens

Maybe he was honouring the true meaning of the dropped pants which originated from prisons and means they are available for a-n-a-l sex. Not that there is anything wrong with that of course.

One would think that there are enough stories around of police misconduct to at least cast some doubt on the rectitude of the police action in this case in the minds of rational adults.

Apparently, one would be wrong.

Therefore, all police perpetuate misconduct in each and every case.

Makes sense, the prisons are also filled mostly with innocent people... Just ask 'em.

Reductio ad absurdam, one of the classic fallacies. Well done.

The audience may note that my precise words were "at least cast doubt on the rectitude of the police action," which Cap'n Morgan, no doubt under the influence of an excess of his namesake product (or possibly just because he's a belligerent a$$hole), chooses to interpret as, and I quote, "all police perpetuate [sic] misconduct in each and every case."

Is this sort of hyperbole going to be your standard response to a suggestion that there may be more to a story than first report?

Thank you.

... I do like the 'at least cast doubt' thingy.... Nothing like perpetuating your role as judge and jury on this.

A little curious here... I noticed in our exchange, you forgot to 'cast doubt ' on the 18 y/o in any way shape or form; just the entirety of law enforcement... Reductio ad absurdam indeed

Interestingly enough, you have failed (or possibly refused) to consider any balance as per there being more to this story.

Have you been imbibing this morn, or perhaps might this be based on your being a belligerent a$$hole?

Congrats on that

OK, that's how it'll be. Things don't change much hereabouts.

Y'all have a real fine day now, hear?

There should really never be an excuse for a cop shooting anybody who is unarmed. Period. Tazer maybe but never shots. I think the cop should be fired and/or charged. Let the court sort it out. But riots are more fun.

Maui ain't so nice just at the moment.

I didn't expect anything. I ain't real surprised at what I got, though.

Obama should concern himself with police terrorism against blacks, not with bullshtt that takes place overseas. Interestingly, none of the Tea Baggers who say the public should be armed against government abuses showed up to defend those who criticized the government cops.

Anybody know where the Tea Baggers disappeared to?

Violence begets violence. If the citizenry was fully armed the government police would not have caused the needless death of that youth and the streets would be far calmer today. Still waiting for the NRA and Tea Baggers to make a statement in support of that notion ....

Certainly the rioters would have been stopped quicker.

I'm still waiting for the investigation results.

Either way it goes, all those mask-wearing cowardly, slack-jawed, lazy-assed fukking animals looting stores should die in a fire.

Why would they support a notion so bizarre?

Mods are dudes with nothing better to do all day at their boring unfulfilling jobs.


It is what it is.....gives them a sense of power they will never really have in reality.


I just find their hypocrisy amusing and I am not afraid to point it out.
