Truth and Justice Needed in Ferguson, MO [Nightly LIVE RIOT thread]
SEIU Healthcare Illinois, Indiana, Missouri & Kansas ^ | August 19, 2014 | Kaitlin DeCero

Posted on 08/20/2014 5:08:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The following statement was released by Keith Kelleher, president of SEIU Healthcare Illinois, Indiana, Missouri & Kansas, in response to the shooting of Ferguson, MO, resident Michael Brown and the unrest that is occurring there:

The aftermath of the tragic shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, reveals the urgent need for justice to prevail in order to bring a level of calm back to the community. The initial lack of information coming from the Ferguson Police Department and its militarized response to protesters has clearly erased any faith in local authorities to uncover the truth.

To that end, the members of SEIU Healthcare Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Kansas call on Governor Jay Nixon to do everything in his authority to de-escalate the militarized atmosphere in Ferguson and allow residents to practice their 1st Amendment right to peaceful assembly and protest.

Additionally, we call on the governor to appoint an independent investigator to work along with the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice, who also have been called in to investigate.

Michael Brown was shot six times while unarmed. Some accounts indicate that his hands were raised in the air when shot. The community demands that someone be held accountable for this abuse of force.

We express our heartfelt sympathy to the family of Michael Brown and call on Gov. Nixon to move swiftly and with transparency to review the facts, inform the community and bring charges wherever the investigation shows that there was misconduct.

We also believe that it is only when people of good will unite and organize for racial and economic justice that incidents like this will cease to occur.

Has SEIU been behind the phonebanks targeting talk radio (national and local) sending (admitted) first time listeners to call the programs and argue with the hosts over basic facts of the case?

I'd say they're doing a pretty good job of it. Dorian Johnson keeps having to change his story.

I'm assuming they are referring with the force used inthe strong arm robbery and struggle for the cops gun and facial injuries, right?

I take it a court of law they so much believed in when OJ was freed is now dead.

All those who hate laws and those enforce them should live in an area. Have that area surrounded where no one can leave and let them live all together.
I guarantee after two hours of a purge they would be crying for some laws

I was out today, what did I miss?

There was a trial, out there in the street, during the daylight.
The good guys were strung up.
Is normal these days, one supposes but may
the good guys win always during the night.
I'll echo Jim 'Stop rioting!'

Citizens of the USA are entitled to the presumption of innocence, even cops. Any one demanding punishment before the investigation and trial are denying the policeman his civil rights, and inciting violence in the streets.

Blacks obviously don’t believe in the presumption of innocence ... GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT is fine with them.

You cannot build a civilization with uncivilized people.

So they've already had a trial? I was out today, what did I miss?

Officer Wilson was convicted of murder. Then the Judge came in and started the trial. The prosecutor stood up and said, "Just look at him, he's white."

Then the Judge said, "GUILTY"

Then they took up donations for the Brown Family

And Spike Lee brought Mike Tyson along to punch any white people that got too close.

They won’t stop unless they are stopped. It’s like the thing of rewarding negative behavior.

Of course now, politics is involved and much money and manpower (feds, local police, nat’l guard).

Reputations are on the line and they committed to another invalid incident. Nothing about this case was racial or unjustified. They are wrong, but too far in to back out now.

Did Holder meet also with the cop who was attacked ?

God, I hope not. The officer is in seclusion in fears for his life. Holder going to meet him would ensure that Wilson's location was made public.

Officer Wilson needs to leak his hospital pictures showing his injuries. None of the interviews including fox news touches that point. At least a leaked picture would require the race baiters to respond. As it is, they get to repeat their lies unchallenged.

So it goes. They’ve made their statement, drawn world wide attention to the “cause” and have the entire nation trying this case in the court of public opinion. To continue is beyond idiotic. Talk about Bitter Clingers.

Speaking of Truth and Justice, dont look to Megyn Kelly, she is a total looser ready for MSNBC. She masquerades as a Conservative but has no credentials.

She did the same to George Zimmerman

From what I’ve seen the looters will loot if the police leave.

Geeze this has gotten tiresome to watch. All these people are just wanting 15 minutes of fame. One can see it watching them in the streets looking foolish

Yes, I’ve been on a few lib websites, and they’ve already tried, convicted, sentenced, and executed Officer er excuse me Murderer Wilson (as the lib posters are calling him.) No objections to the lib version allowed without being called a nasty racist. Libs don’t need no stinkin’ facts or evidence. Murderer Wilson is guilty, guilty, guilty. (snicker)

I think we know some of the truth but it will never see the light of day in a court room. The rioting masses want to feel justified and blame anyone but themselves for not improving their lives. They need a bigger check.
