2 shot in Ferguson as protests turn violent Sunday
FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Two people were shot as protests turned violent in Ferguson late Sunday night, St. Louis County Police said.
The shootings happened near the intersection of West Florissant Avenue and Ferguson Avenue as tensions between protesters and police escalated. The condition of the two people shot was not immediately released.
The St. Louis County Police Department also confirmed that one of their officers was involved in an officer-involved shooting after coming under heavy gunfire. They say during the gunfire at least two unmarked cars were hit by bullets. Upon further investigation, it was revealed that a female officer was in the vehicle when shots were fired at the car. She then returned fire. Her condition is unknown.
Earlier in the evening two businesses were broken into. Bowen’s Beauty Supply Store on West Florissant was vandalized around 8:30 p.m. Police believe the person stole a cash register but then dropped the register outside a nearby store and fled.
Someone later threw a glass bottle towards officers. Police with riot gear then arrived. SOURCE
I don’t want to sound like a harbinger of doom but to be completely honest with you, I was surprised that it was so late in the evening when violence broke out, I was expecting some of the ghetto rats to fire it all up at an earlier hour simply so they could loot and scoot with their newly stolen treasures, and I DO believe this has serious potential to escalate.
Since it was Ferguson I have to presume the shooters were Black, and yes, I know, I’m profiling and I don’t care what the Liberals that DO read here, or anyone else has to say about it.
Anyway, what are the Liberals and anti-gun crowd are going to say about the GUNS and the SHOOTERS in this particular instance? As I said; I am willing to take serious bets that ALL concerned NOT on the Police side were Black, and according to the Police on scene they were fired on by *subjects unknown* but were subjected to *heavy gunfire*.
I am also expecting to hear from the Liberals and anti-gun people on this one too. I’m betting we get the same old tired story from the anti-gun lobby and the Liberals.
The GUN did it … If no one had guns this wouldn’t have happened… He was a good boy and he loved his Mama … He was trying to turn his life around and was going to start tomorrow … He was on his way home from Sunday night services and he FOUND that gun … He didn’t know the gun was loaded … He thought it was a *play* gun until it accidentally went off …
Did I leave out any of the usual excuses? Blah Blah Blah, same old story, different day.
My thoughts are with the Officers and their safety, the rest of Ferguson can burn itself down, die and go to hell.
If this situation intensifies in the overnight hours I will update once I am back from my nap, it’s getting late here in Texas, and God knows; I need my beauty sleep.
