Ahead of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri in the shooting death of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, local, state and federal authorities have beefed up their forces to prepare for the reaction. They have asked for calm. However, the protesters leading up to the eventual grand jury decision have been anything but. Friday night was no different as protesters responded to police by chanting ”F*ck the police” and shouting “We don’t give a f*ck about your laws like you don’t give a f*ck about our lives.”
This is going to get ugly, really ugly.

The protests in Ferguson, Mo., on Friday night grew larger than previous days’ gatherings of protesters, despite the rain and cold weather. Police officers used a megaphone to ask protesters to leave the street outside the Ferguson Police Department or they would be arrested. In this video, protesters responded by chanting ”F— the police” and shouting “We don’t give a f— about your laws like you don’t give a f— about our lives.”
Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is still agitating until the very end. Holder urged police to show restraint in handling any protests that flare after the grand jury’s decision. REALLY? ARE YOU KIDDING? All hell is going to break loose in Ferguson if the grand jury does not come back with a murder indictment. Even with that, there will probably still be protests and riots. Just curious, how about telling the agitators to do the same?
