Ferguson, Missouri (KMOV.com) – What started as a peaceful prayer vigil Saturday evening to remember a young man gunned down by police, has escalated into full scale riots and looting in Ferguson, Missouri.

Angry mobs have smashed windows, set fires and looted businesses as a massive showing of police, some wearing riot gear have moved into the area along West Florissant just south of 270.

Police are also responding to reports of shootings throughout the area. At one point, windows of a News 4 live truck were smashed out by the angry crowd.

Crowds reportedly stormed the QuickTrip on West Florissant . . .

yes, looting a convenience store is always the proper corrective for allegations of police brutality.

Looks like what was supposed to be a peaceful protest got hijacked by drunks.

Associated article says that Sharpton is on his way. Must be only minor bucks in the situation or Jackson would have beat him there.

there are over 200 police cars on scene - helicopters in the air. Looting of a Quiktrip, AutoZone, news crew van damage and one reporter hit in head with a bottle.

Shots fired.

one reporter hit in head with a bottle.

Might knock some sense into him.

Standing around at a riot isn't too bright.

Frankly, that’s about it.

Empowerment has sure worked it’s charms.

To be fair, there were people like this before Obama, but the “Knock out Game” and public mass flash mobs have certainly proliferated under this prom (Obama) queen.

Took all the scratch offs too. Might be more lucrative than the ATM.

They are taking a hell of a lot of justice out of that convenience store.

My wife’s from Missouri but maybe we’re safe here in the north from this zombie outbreak, or even the apocalypse itself.

Anyway, the infected love to walk around—walkers looking for something to bite/eat?
So we just get them started on the shopping mall walk route and they just do an endless loop until they starve to death.

When it all starts I plan to offer my services, ‘Undead Consulting’© to beleaguered communities, smaller venues, the big cities will be boned anyway. So keep me in mind.

Another site says the Walmart is being hit hard.

Social media and Obamaphones has made riot intensity harder to deal with.

Why do you say that....because the media says so?

Remember Rodney King, how they just played a small snippet of the tape and didn’t show the full story, showing Rodney lunging after the cops?

News 4 viewers on the scene say several markets, gas stations and other businesses have been looted. One witness told News 4 a group of people attempted to steal an ATM from a gas station.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with that kid that got shot.
