As the grand jury deliberates on a decision whether or not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18 year old Michael Brown, the protest pressure cooker is close to blowing …
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.
Warning: Adult language
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?
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder urged police to show restraint in handling any protests that flare after the grand jury’s decision as tensions simmered in Ferguson, Missouri, over a case that has become a flashpoint for U.S. race relations.
Even if officer Darren Wilson is not indicted on any charges, he is forced to resign …
As we all wait for the the grand jury decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, CNN is reporting that Officer Wilson is in talks to resign. Wilson is supposedly in the final stages of talks to resign. Previously, Ferguson Chief of Police Tom Jackson said that Officer Wilson would be immediately returned back to active duty if he is not indicted. That seems not to be the case. Officer Wilson continues to maintains he has done nothing wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether a grand jury returns an indictment against him in Brown’s death. His reason for leaving his job has more to do with easing pressure and protect his fellow officers. The sad reality is though, a police officer may not only be found not guilty of a crime, he may not even be indicted of one and still pretty much be forced to resign. That is what happens when community agitators come to town.
As a grand jury gets closer to announcing its decision, Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown, is in the final stages of negotiations with city officials to resign, sources close to the talks said.
The grand jury hearing evidence is preparing to meet Friday for what might be its final session. A decision on whether to charge Wilson in the death of the unarmed teen could come the same day, law enforcement officials have said.
Wilson maintains he has done nothing wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether a grand jury returns an indictment against him in Brown’s death, the sources said.
While Wilson has told associates he would resign to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers, he’s expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.
Wilson could announce as soon as Friday his plans to resign, the same day a St. Louis County grand jury meets to deliberate and possibly decide on an indictment.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon Declares a State of Emergency in Ferguson Ahead of Grand Jury Decision in the Death of Michael Brown … FBI Warns of “Likely Violence”
The grand jury decision could happen any moment …
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency on Monday as a precaution ahead of the grand jury decision in the death of Michael Brown. Nixon said he signed the executive order because of the “possibility of expanded unrest.” What he means is the almost certainty of riots and unrest if they fail to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on murder charges. The National Guard has been called in to St. Louis County. This could get really messy.
Gov. Jay Nixon today signed an executive order activating the Missouri National Guard to support law enforcement during any period of unrest that might occur following the grand jury’s decision concerning the investigation into the death of Michael Brown. The Governor said the Guard will provide support for law enforcement’s objectives of maintaining safety and protecting constitutional rights.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to plan and be prepared for any contingency, it is necessary to have these resources in place in advance of any announcement of the grand jury’s decision,” Gov. Nixon said. “These additional resources will support law enforcement’s efforts to maintain peace and protect those exercising their right to free speech. The National Guard is well-suited to provide security at command posts, fire stations and other locations as well as perform other functions that will free up law enforcement officers to remain focused on community policing and protecting constitutional rights.”
Ahead of a grand jury’s decision on whether to indict a police officer in the killing of Michael Brown, Missouri has both called in the National Guard and diminished the role of the Ferguson Police Department.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency Monday as a precaution, he said, in the event of unrest or violence.
It’s unknown when the grand jury will hand down a decision on whether to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for his fatal shooting of Brown, a teen. Prosecutors have suggested the grand jury would be done deliberating in mid- to late November.
At the national level, the FBI last week issued a bulletin to law enforcement urging vigilance in the days before the Ferguson grand jury decision, according to a law enforcement official.
Police are worried about radical groups that might try to harm officers after the Michael Brown grand jury announces its decision.
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says they are concerned that the Black Panthers or communist activists might blend in with peaceful protestors and try to hurt police.
“We do have concerns about that. We’re seeing on the social media, there’s a lot of threats out there against police officers. Again, we’re trying to discern which of those are legitimate and which are not,” Belmar says. “I have a feeling 99 percent of them are not going to amount to anything, but you know what? It just takes one.”
As the nation waits to hear whether a Missouri police officer will face charges for killing unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., the FBI is warning law enforcement agencies across the country that the decision “will likely” lead some extremist protesters to threaten and even attack police officers or federal agents.
Peaceful protesters could be caught in the middle, and electrical facilities or water treatment plants could also become targets. In addition, so-called “hacktivists” like the group “Anonymous” could try to launch cyber-attacks against authorities.
“The announcement of the grand jury’s decision … will likely be exploited by some individuals to justify threats and attacks against law enforcement and critical infrastructure,” the FBI says in an intelligence bulletin issued in recent days. “This also poses a threat to those civilians engaged in lawful or otherwise constitutionally protected activities.”

Ferguson Chief of Police Says: Officier Darren Wilson Will be “Immediately” Returned to Active Duty if He is Not Indicted in Shooting Death of Michael Brown
IF WILSON IS CLEARED, FERGUSON MAY NEED ALL THE POLICE OFFICERS THEY CAN MUSTER …
With the grand jury ruling on the shooting death of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson rumored to be handed down before the end of November, the Ferguson, MO Chief of Police Tom Jackson said that Officer Wilson would be immediately returned back to active duty if he is not indicted. However, Jackson also stated if the grand jury charges Wilson, he would “most likely” be terminated “if it is a felony.” HUH? I am hoping that the Chief of police misspoke, an indictment is not being found guilty by a jury.
The Ferguson police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown will be “immediately” returned to active duty if he is not indicted, Chief Tom Jackson told Yahoo News on Friday.
Officer Darren Wilson has been on paid leave since the controversial shooting in early August.
He would come back to a “not yet determined assignment,” the chief writes in an email.
If the grand jury charges Wilson, Jackson said the officer would “most likely” be terminated “if it is a felony.”
Attorneys representing the officer did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. Wilson, a Ferguson officer for three years, has not spoken publicly since the shooting. It is unknown if the 28-year-old Wilson wants to return to the force.
“I would be surprised if they put him back on the streets at least in the near future,” said Bob Gorsky, a Dallas attorney who has represented Texas police officers for nearly 40 years
Gun Sales Spike in Ferguson, MO Ahead of the Grand Jury Decision on the Shooting Death of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson
There are tense times ahead of the grand juries decision in Ferguson, Missouri with regards to the shooting death of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, as gun sales spike. Will Officer Wilson be cleared or indicted? And if indicted, for what? The longer this goes on, the more tense things get. Those who are pro-Michael Brown claim they want justice; however, it sound more like revenge. The result is many uneasy citizens in Ferguson and the surrounding areas buying up guns for their protection.
Lately, Dan McMullen has been bringing an extra gun to his office in Ferguson, Missouri.
McMullen runs Solo Insurance on West Florissant close to where looting and vandalism briefly broke out in early August after a police officer shot to death teenager Michael Brown.
“I bring an extra gun now only because it has a bigger magazine,” McMullen says. He began carrying it after tensions increased in the area following the shooting. He says he would never use it to protect his business, but he would use it to save his life.
More … Steven King, the owner of Metro Shooting Supplies in Bridgeton, Missouri, says sales have recently “skyrocketed” again because of the fear of the unknown ahead of the grand jury decision. People saw what the protesters were capable of and now want to protect themselves from the protesters, looters and vandals.
“You’re exactly right. In August gun sales went up exponentially. Not only at our store but around the entire St. Louis metropolitan area. It’s kind of tapered off over the last couple of months. And, now in the last week or so, sales have started to skyrocket once again… We have a wide variety of people who are buying right now. We have first time buyers. We have elderly people, white, black, Asian. We’ve got women. We’ve got men. We’ve got head of households. But, primarily we got people, 100% of the people this weekend who have bought a firearm have bought it because of some sort of fear of the unknown.”

22 Year Old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither Missing Since 11/2/14 in Philadelphia, PA … Abducted In the City’s Germantown Section Sunday Night Caught on VIDEO (Update: Missing Philadelphia Woman found in Maryland)(Update: Delven Barnes Arrested)
22 year old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither is missing after her apparent abduction that was caught on surveillance video. Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was last seen around 9:40 p.m. Sunday, November 2, 2014 in the 100 block of West Coulter Street in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Freeland-Gaither is described as a black female, five feet, three inches tall, 125 pounds with brown eyes. Police say she has braided hair and has a tattoo on her lower back, and was last seen wearing a light blue jean jacket, a gray and white sweater, carrying a black backpack.
Police in Philadelphia have released dramatic video of a suspect apparently abducting a woman in the city’s Germantown section Sunday night.
Twenty-two-year-old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was last seen around 9:40 p.m. Sunday in the 100 block of West Coulter Street, reports CBS Philly. A witness said the woman was yelling for help as a man forced her into a dark-colored sedan.
Surveillance video released Monday by Philadelphia police shows a man driving down a street, parking his car and walking a short distance out of the camera’s view, back towards the direction from which he came. He’s then seen apparently chasing a woman across the street before grabbing her and forcing her down the block and into the car.
Freeland-Gaither tries to break free as the man works to open the rear driver’s side door on a 2000 model dark gray metallic Ford Taurus with missing inspection stickers. They both tumble onto the sidewalk, but the woman is unable to get away.
She’s thrown into the back of the car and the vehicle rocks back-and-forth for about 30 seconds before it pulls away. During that time, police said the woman broke out the both rear windows of the car trying to escape.
Another car can be seen driving up the street as the struggle takes place, but eventually backs out of the street.
A witness told NBC10 he walked past the woman shortly before hearing her scream. He then ran back to find her being forced into the sedan.
There is now a $15,000 reward offered in the search for Carlesha Freeland-Gaither.
The Fraternal Order of Police put an additional $5,000 Tuesday saying if an arrest is made today, they will pay up immediately.
Philadelphia Police have launched a full-scale investigation into the abduction on West Coulter Street in Germantown.
“Just let my daughter go. Whatever it takes, I don’t care. Just let her go,” father Carl Freeland said.
Authorities have found the woman abducted in Philadelphia alive in Maryland, and they have arrested a man in connection with the investigation, police and the FBI announced Wednesday evening.
FBI Philadelphia Special Agent in Charge Ed Hanko announced at 7 p.m. Wednesday that a tip to their Richmond office led investigators to identify an individual and his car, which they tracked to the 7200 block of Waterloo Road in Jessup.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives went to the location, which was a shopping center parking lot, and said agents immediately recognized the car as the one for which they’d been looking.
“It did have the right rear window kicked out of it, which was similar to the information that we received from the Philadelphia Police Department,” said ATF agent Timothy Jones.
“Tonight, the FBI and Philadelphia Police Department have great news that Carlesha Freeland has been rescued, her abductor has been arrested in Maryland,” Special Agent Hanko said.
The suspect is identified as 37-year-old Delvin Barnes.
Barnes is currently being held on a warrant based out of Charles City County, Virginia sheriff’s office for attempted capital murder, assault, malicious injury with acid, explosive, or fire.
Hanko says he will then be charged federally with crimes in Philadelphia
Anyone with information is asked to call the Philadelphia Police. Tipsters in Philadelphia should call 911, and those outside of the city should call 215-686-TIPS.

New Black Panther Party Leader Frank Sha Francois Calls Ax Wielding Police Attacker Zale Thomspon “a Crusader Seeking Justice”
SICK … Queens, NY New Black Panther Party leader calls ax wielding police attacker a “Crusader Seeking Justice.”
Frank Sha Francois, the Queens chapter leader of the New Black Panther Party says that Zale Thomspon, the jihadist sympathizer who hated cops and white people, “a crusader seeking justice.” Frank Sha Francois stated that “it probably won’t be the last [attack on police] because you have a lot of frustrated people out here.” Although, Francois insisted he didn’t agree with Thompson’s methods. Sure he didn’t, that’s why he makes such a claim that there will be more attacks on police? The NBPP leader said that Zale Thompson was not a member of the Queens chapter, but he did show up to meetings and focused on the topic of police brutality.
Crusader for justice, eh … sounds for like a radical jihadist, reverse racism and a hate crime. Thankfully, Zale Thompson was shot dead by police before he could cause more harm.
The Muslim extremist who attacked rookie cops with a hatchet last week was “a crusader seeking justice’’ — and more assaults will likely follow, the head of his local New Black Panther Party warned.
“It probably won’t be the last [attack on police] because you have a lot of frustrated people out here,” Queens chapter leader Frank Sha Francois told The Post.
Francois said ax-wielding Zale Thompson wasn’t officially a member of his group, but he came to meetings and they talked about “police brutality” cases such as Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
“I don’t condone violence, but something needs to be done,” Francois said. “We need to have some type of deterrent and real oversight to deter the police from violating the laws and to know they are not above the laws.”
While he hailed the ax man as a “crusader,” Francois insisted he didn’t agree with Thompson’s methods.
Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte, Suspected of Killing Two California Sheriff’s Deputies is an Illegal Alien Previosly Deported Back to Mexico Twice
Illegal aliens, doing the jobs Americans don’t want to do … Twice deported illegal Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte suspected of killing two Sheriff’s Deputies … CLOSE THE DAMN BORDER!!!
Two California Sheriff’s deputies were killed on Friday by an illegal alien, who had been deported twice from the United States and pulled over by law enforcement at least 10 times. Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte, a convicted drug dealer and his wife were arrested and are in custody. The 34 year old Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte has been charged with murder, attempted murder and carjacking. His wife was also charged with attempted murder and carjacking. UNREAL, Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte was convicted on a drug charge in 1997 and sent back to Mexico. He was picked up in 2001 and deported again. When is this country going to take illegal immigration and its borders seriously?

The law enforcement heroes who were killed were Sacramento County Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, a 15 year veteran of the police force and a husband and father of two daughters. Also murdered was Placer County Deputy Michael David Davis Jr., 42, an 18 year veteran with a wife and four children.God bless their souls. Our prayers and condolences go out to the family, friends of Danny Oliver and Michael David Davis Jr. and their fellow police officers.
The suspect alleged to have shot three northern California sheriff’s deputies Friday, killing two, was deported twice and has a criminal record, federal officials said late Saturday.
A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman said that the fingerprints of the suspected shooter match those of a man named Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte. Monroy-Bracamonte was initially deported to Mexico in 1997 after being convicted of drug possession in Arizona. Four years later, he was arrested and deported again for an unspecified offense.
“The fingerprints were the basis for our request for an immigration detainer,” ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice told The Associated Press. The detainer requests that local authorities transfer him to federal custody after his case is adjudicated so ICE can purse his deportation, Kice said.
The suspect initially identified himself as Marcelo Marquez, 34, of Salt Lake City. He is charged with two counts each of murder, attempted murder and carjacking. The suspect’s wife, Janelle Marquez-Monroy, was also arrested Friday and charged with carjacking and attempted murder.
