No justice; No peace! chants in Ferguson are actually saying, We want revenge!
The Washington Times ^ | August 18, 2014 | Ernest Istook

Posted on 08/19/2014 3:50:39 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In Ferguson, Missouri, a desire for revenge has replaced a desire for justice.

A police shooting was the first tragedy there, but more tragedies have piled on top of it. Those who complain that the officer rushed to judgment are doing their own rush to judgment themselves. They seek to dictate the consequences even without knowing. And unlike the officer, they have zero first-hand knowledge.

Instead of waiting out the investigation, they’re chanting, “No justice; No peace!” as a politically correct slogan that actually means, “We want revenge!” That attitude makes bad things become worse.

The police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown was the first tragedy. Ferguson police compounded the impact when the young man’s body was left lying in the street, uncovered and highly visible to all in the black neighborhood where the shooting happened.

Some media and black leaders quickly stoked outrage and rushed to judgment— acting with the very haste for which they condemn the policeman who fired the fatal shots. Officer Darren Wilson says he defended himself when attacked by Mr. Brown, and says that Mr. Brown tried to take the officer’s gun. Video evidence of Mr. Brown’s strong-arm tactics in allegedly robbing a convenience store that day is not proof that Officer Wilson was attacked. But the video demonstrates how the 6-foot-4, 292-pound Mr. Brown was physically intimidating and had been willing to use his strong-arm strength only minutes before the shooting....

“Tragedy” be damned.
A thug on his way to ‘greater things’ got his just desserts.
It’s now about the PROTECTION OF OUR BLACK CRIMINAL CLASS—at (literally ) all costs!

They’re sowing a bitter harvest with their actions.

Destroying, looting, shooting, attacking law enforcement.

Incredible.

Revenge? Or just the desire to kill and destroy anyone they can blame for their own situation and excuse taking anything they want.

Yep they could care less about the truth.
Justice to them is the cop thrown in jail. Facts be damned.
All I want is the truth. If the policeman is in the wrong then he should be tried in a court of law.
Since al & jessie & holder etc. have become involved we will probably never know the truth, and any trial will be a kangaroo court.

This morning on the early FOX show, they had a picture of a voter registration booth set up on the street at the place that Brown was shot.

To democrats, this is a get out the vote effort.

Two signs being held up at Ferguson said this is the “Negro Spring”, the seasons are a bit off, but I wonder will it become acceptable in the near future to remove the parenthesis and make this a statement of universal fact? With Waco conspirator and chief race war man Holder in charge I’m betting the chances have risen substantially. My bet is the Chicago suburbs are the next place for democratic party Problem, Reaction, Solution racial politics/war.

Lots of “peaceful protestors” and rioters got killed, tortured, attacked by rival movements and sent to prison and disappeared during the Arab Spring. Did they ever think of that? I mean a LOT of them.

It would appear so. They don’t intend to let this crisis go to waste, if at all possible.

Soon they’ll be on 27th autopsy until they get just what they want it to say.

Though Holder would never consider having black panthers arrested for inciting violence, IMHO, this DOES meet the standard of not being allowed to shout “FIRE!” in a crowded movie theater...

Okay, I get it. They want revenge? Then, let them have it. Then I will be able to get revenge on every public school official who didn’t like what I had to say in class trying to get the students to straighten up and live right and not become “Ferguson” types. If they get their revenge, then all of us everywhere who have abhorred what authority has done to us will get our revenge too. Bring it on.

” They’re sowing a bitter harvest with their actions.”

Not really. Once Ferguson is fully torched, and everything of value is looted, they will go to the next town and demand (and get) the free stuff they got before. There is nothing bitter for them, only taxpayers.

Michael got his justice as did Trayvon — summarily.

How many perps have to attack others without reason before they find out that justice often comes out of the victim’s gun barrel?

There are good, hard-working Americans who are paying for these protesters’ cell phones, bandanas, and gas for their Molotov cocktails. I’m so sick and tired of hearing “Poor me.” Get out and get a job. A change is not gonna come until you work for it and quit expecting handouts. It’s outrageous.

I think some of the dozens and dozens who have been arrested may be rethinking things. Probably not most, of course.

The clown Obama tried to appoint to the DoJ civil rights division last year said if he was confirmed he was going to be targeting police.

This has been in the works for at least a year they were just waiting for the right “incident”, the spark to ignite the flame, they could then ratchet up to a raging inferno.

Young black hooligans aren't 'asking for trouble' they're just being lower class and tacky. Could it be that it's all they know?

Maybe our response should be more like the democrat response - give them a new youth center... tell them 'yes, yes, we understand your pain' and then bring in Hispanics to do entry level jobs.

It's possible democrats understand blacks better than we do...

Ferguson's a war on police. A war on order... and the rule of law.

Obama’s using chaos...

Just like Benghazi was an exercise to show the military they were impotent against evil, Ferguson gives that horror to police departments around the country. Police may NOT protect themselves or their citizens any more than the military could protect their SEALS.

That's the message.

Alinsky said to use a groups ‘rules and beliefs’ against them... hang them with their own rope. Interesting to watch. It's not going to work - Obama and Holder will lose - but it's mildly entertaining to watch.

What you are seeing has been the Clintons MO since 1991.

Every time since 1991, when a Clinton has their sight set on the WH or staying in the WH, there has been planned or orchestrated civil unrest.

Time after time after time the Clintons have orchestrated civil unrest around a “R King” type incident.

Really? Tragic only in the sense that the deceased's compounded bad choices in life led to his early death.

eft lying in the street, uncovered and highly visible to all in the black neighborhood where the shooting happened.

What's so special about a "black neighborhood"? Is the author admitting that there's something fundamentally broken in "black" urban culture?

Some media and black leaders

I keep seeing this term "black leaders" ... but never "white leaders"? Is the author admitting further evidence that "black" urban culture is terminally broken ... hence the need for racial/racists "leaders"?

"Some people partially hollow out a cigar and fill it with weed. They may feel they can smoke this cigar in public and not be detected. A marijuana-tobacco cigar is called a 'blunt,' said to be because Phillies Blunt cigars were originally used. Swisher Sweets brand of small cigars are often used to make blunts, along with Garcia y Vega and White Owl cigars. This practice may have started being popular among the rap music crowd but it has spread much farther today."

I’m reading it as them telling “outsiders” to get off their turf, that the thugs are in charge - and any who cross them will be destroyed (just like the store that reported the instigating theft). Drawing tribal boundaries.
