Gov Jay Nixon activates the MO National Guard to #Ferguson in the event of unrest

Jay Nixon activates National GuardI am so distressed. Governor Jay Nixon activates the MO National Guard and issues A State of Emergency based on what he THINKS black people may do at the announcement of the Darren Wilson Ferguson Grand Jury decision. OMFG! Preconceived notions!!! How in the living hell can police not have preconceived notions about black people when a Gov activates the National Guard based on the same idea?

The Klan protest, law enforcement gives them an escort. Black people protest, the National Guard is activated. A State of Emergency is issued! Black people can’t walk while black, drive while black, seek help while black, shop while black and now protest while black because black people protesting is a threat & dangerous for white society.

UNFUCK AMERICA! Blackness is not a threat.

Governor Nixon is not slick. He’s using the State of Emergency to violate citizens a right to protest because in a State of Emergency citizens can lose their individual rights. We see you, Governor Nixon!

  2. Just watch..

    The Grand Jury decision will be announced while I have to go run errands today.

    • Ametia says:

      Let’s see if the citizens of Ferguson will have something to be thankful for Thanksgiving!

    • Liza says:

      I thought the GJ decision would be this afternoon, but apparently not.

      Those old white boys like Gov Jay Nixon and the Ferguson police chief (especially him) want a riot so bad they are willing to do just about anything to start one. I loathe those people.

  3. Holder urges police restraint ahead of grand jury decision in Ferguson

    (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday urged police to use restraint amid potential protests that could follow the upcoming grand jury decision in the Ferguson, Missouri case involving a police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August.

    “The Justice Department encourages law enforcement officials, in every jurisdiction, to work with the communities they serve to minimize needless confrontation,” Holder said in a video address released by the department.

    Police in Ferguson have told residents to expect a grand jury decision on Sunday, the Huffington Post reported late on Thursday. The grand jury is unlikely to press charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, the Washington Post has reported.

  4. Ametia says:

    Officer in Ferguson shooting unlikely to return to job, police chief says

    This comment right here:

    “Of course he’s not going to return to his job. Wilson is set for life if he’s not indicted. He’ll write a best-selling book, hit the lecture circuit, become a darling of conservative talk radio, and land a lucrative job on Fox News. What an inspiring story, to see how a young man, through hard work, determination, and standing up to thugs, can make it big in the world.”

    • Ametia says:

      Negotiations? This punk right here. Darren Wilson’s ass should have been arrested and preparing to go to trial by now.

      This is too little way to late,and it’s another ATTEMPT by Ferguson authorities to placate Black folks, while letting this mofo off the hook by not INDICTING him.

    “Opinion: Bringing attention to persistent injustice”

    7 hours ago • by Johnetta Elzie, DeRay McKesson and Brittany Packnett

    Over the last 103 days, many pundits, outside observers and outright opponents have co-opted our intentions and ignored our purpose, manipulating our cause to fit agendas that are not our own. Now, having been given the unique opportunity to provide clarity, we want to be unequivocally clear about who we are, why we’re here and why we can’t wait.

    We are Americans, exercising the democratic voice gifted us by birthright. We have not brought unrest as it has been called, but rather have brought attention to persistent injustice — and that attention causes discomfort. The status quo is comfortable for those privileged not to live our reality, making the discomfort of awareness necessary. This is the epitome of the free American democracy that Patrick Henry proclaimed, that Frederick Douglass professed, that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. practiced.
    We are peaceful. We discipline ourselves and remain resolutely confident in the righteousness of our cause, even in the face of weapons of war. We ensure that actions remain peaceful, purposeful, and focused on our message, not on chaos. That we must continually remind and convince the public of our peaceful stance is disheartening. We are so often irresponsibly labeled as thugs by those who would — consciously or not — use our peaceful protests to revive the myth of the violent black savage.

    We are activists, young and old, new and experienced, committed to justice for all people. We believe a change in the culture of law enforcement that leaves unarmed children dead is long overdue. We believe that this is a movement that requires allies from all communities, since all communities should proclaim the humanity of all children.

    And make no mistake: Our cause is a call for basic human decency. All children deserve to live their lives in a way that allows them to fully achieve their potential. So we protest, we march and we stand because that opportunity was violently taken from Mike.
    We are here to demand that human life has profound value, no matter its trappings, skin color, ZIP code or gender. We are here to focus the spotlight on the unnecessary loss of human life. Stories about assumed chaos after the return of the grand jury’s decision ignore the primary and central fact: an unarmed child was killed far, far too young.

    We implore those that scorn and dismiss our protest to walk in our shoes. In too many communities, unarmed black youth, particularly males, are stripped of life and liberty by police officers. Many, far too many, of those unarmed children. And in our peaceful grief, we were met with weaponry meant only for times of war, and invective accusing Mike and our movement of thuggery that justified the violence.

    The disruption we have therefore intentionally created reflects the disruption of life we will no longer tolerate. So, if we disrupt the status quo now, know that is an intentional choice. We seek to nonviolently mirror this violent, intolerable disruption of life in our communities. If this were your constant reality, we believe you would make the same choice.

    In the days since Mike was shot dead, Kajieme Powell and VonDerrit Myers Jr. were killed, too. A host of peaceful protesters were unjustly arrested. Life, liberty and voice have continually been stripped away.
    And as we march toward justice for all lives lost, we also potentially march into danger. While we stockpile signs, we are told that others, who are sworn to protect and serve us, instead mean us harm and are stockpiling guns. Already, heavy-handed police responses to peaceful protests make us justifiably worried about what is to come. Though we are peaceful, we fear for our safety. We fear for our lives.

    But while we move toward the unknown, we cannot allow fear to dissolve our movement. We cannot wait for justice, since, too often, delay actually means denial. We must see a sustainable community-oriented shift in the policing of our neighborhoods. We must see the truthful reporting of our cause by responsible institutions. We cannot wait for another life to be lost, for more blood to be shed, for more lines of division to be drawn further and deeper across this city before we change course.

    The night they sang a requiem for our fallen brother, our allies asked us which side we are on.

    We are on the human side. We hope you stand with us.

    Why protest? To remind this country that though it was birthed on broken black bodies, we will not allow this to continue. #Ferguson

    We waded in the water and sang out instructions on how to live. Music, in our blackness, was literally a way of life. #Blackness

    We prayed to a God we barely knew simply because we had to keep our spirit intact in the face of pure evil. We survived. #Blackness

    We still knew love, as our families were intentionally destroyed and as our children were sold as toys. We still found joy. #Blackness

    See, the blackness I know has survived much more than the likes of Gov. Nixon and Bob McCulloch. We have stared down evil before. #Ferguson

    With broad hips and full lips, we became the definers of cool. We birthed the hip in hip-hop. Even our failures are commodities. #Blackness

    We have come so far. And yet here we are. Staring down 1,000 guards and the National Guard poised to engage. Here we are. America. #Ferguson

    And the fact that we STILL know joy and love with so much institutional hate in our recent history is incredible. #Ferguson

    See, “black don’t crack” is about more than our beauty. It is also about our spirit. We continuously face down evil and survive. #Ferguson

    Jim Crow is no longer poll taxes and not being allowed to read/write. Jim Crow is now emergency orders and blank police reports. #Ferguson

    Did I know Mike Brown? No. // Am I my brother’s keeper? No. // I am my brother. #Ferguson

    We protest because our tears have not washed away injustice, because we will not allow our grief to swallow us. #Ferguson

    We protest because, at this point, we may choke on our silence. Because we may suffocate in all of the unspoken pain and rage. #Ferguson

    Tonight, I’ll be saying the old school “now I lay me down to sleep” prayer before I go to bed.

    1,000 officers have been trained to respond to #Ferguson protestors. And a State of Emergency has already been declared. America. #Ferguson

    We are a movement of many voices, of many leaders, of many choices. We do not always agree. But we fight as one. We protest. #Ferguson

  8. Why is the media not exposing Gov Jay Nixon illegal State of Emergency? No natural or man-made disasters has occurred. There are no riots. No one’s safety is at risk.

  9. Just watched Lizz Brown on msnbc speaking about Gov Jay Nixon & his State of Emergency move & Lizz going for the jugular…

    “If you look at the law, the Governor has broken the law in order to put our community under a State of Emergency’. ‘We have an act of lawlessness’ perhaps by the Gov to respond to what he says are acts of lawlessness”.

  10. Liza says:

    I can tell you this was absolutely the first thought that went through my mind when I heard what Jay Nixon has done.

  11. No natural or man-made disasters has occurred. No earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados or riots etc

    Missouri Revised Statutes

    Emergency powers of governor.
    44.100. 1. The emergency powers of the governor shall be as follows:

    (1) The provisions of this section shall be operative only during the existence of a state of emergency (referred to in this section as “emergency”). The existence of an emergency may be proclaimed by the governor or by resolution of the legislature, if the governor in his proclamation, or the legislature in its resolution, finds that a natural or man-made disaster of major proportions has actually occurred within this state, and that the safety and welfare of the inhabitants of this state require an invocation of the provisions of this section;

  12. Governor Nixon says “peaceful protesters” in his press conferences but he really means ‘rioters’. Pay attention to his actions. Activates the National Guard. Declares a State of Emergency.

    • roderick2012 says:

      So who were the eight darkie witnesses who supposedly agreed with Wilson’s version of events?

      Oh I know they don’t exist.

    • roderick2012 says:

      We’ve known what the grand jury’s decision would be before it was seated.

      These fools keep telegraphing it and act as if it’s a surprise to them.

      I just love how guilty people act and they honestly believe that no one realizes what they are doing.

  13. Governor Nixon, who is in charge? Your answer on the press conference didn’t make no sense.

  14. Ametia says:



  15. Listen how Jay Nixon bobbles this question. OMG!

    Jay Nixon of Missouri answers questions on November 17 on whether the buck stops with him regarding the policing of protests in Ferguson and who is ultimately in charge.

    • I smell fish and it ain’t Friday.

      • Ametia says:

        The behaviors of Gov. Nixon and the Ferguson PD, and other Missouri leaders are CRIMINAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, AND PHYSICAL WARFARE on the citizens of Ferguson.

        Declaring of state of emergency before an actual EMERGENCY, just sets the stage for the white power structure to assault blacks and anyone who protests against their KILLR COP, Darren Wilson.

      • yahtzeebutterfly says:

        So upsetting…so scary

    • roderick2012 says:

      Nixon is no better than the Grand Wizard of the KKK.

      It’s as if they want riots so they can have an excuse to kill and maim blacks.

      These people are sick,

    • rikyrah says:

      YOU call the ‘State of Emergency’

      So whatever happens…IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY MOFO!

      • Ametia says:

        Damn skippy it’s this MOFO’s fault. Nixon is trying to avoid taking ownership of the fact that he’s a COWARD for calling the national guard into Ferguson because a white cop killed an unarmed black teen boy Michael Brown Jr. and the town isn’t HAVING IT.

        He doesn’t want to claim he’s large and in charge over the fuckery that he’s trying to intimidate and shutdown FREE SPEECH of the Black citizens of Ferguson.

        FUCK HIM!

  16. White man aims on Federal agents during a standoff & nothing happens. Black people use their voice to protest an injustice & it’s State of Emergency.


  17. Liza says:

    I share your distress, SG2. There is so much going on here that is just so wrong. I really don’t want more people to be killed over this, but wtf is up with declaring a state of emergency and calling in the National Guard before anything has happened? Has the grand jury been a sham with a predetermined outcome? It’s pretty clear that Jay Dixon is staging Ferguson for no indictment. And who is pulling his strings, I wonder.

    It seems that Jay Nixon and the other white boys who are in on this are doing all they can to provoke violence from the protesters so they can justify the use of police / military violence which they obviously want to use against these people. Do the old boys think that they will make an example of Ferguson to stop all of this from happening every time a cop murders a black person?
    Or is this also their message to the DOJ and the United Nations and Amnesty International or any organization that recognizes what is going on here and speaks out?

    • Liza says:

      * Jay Nixon*

    • roderick2012 says:

      Has the grand jury been a sham with a predetermined outcome? It’s pretty clear that Jay Dixon is staging Ferguson for no indictment. And who is pulling his strings, I wonder.

      Truth and why do they continue to delay the announcement?

      It’s just making the situation more tense and everyone knows that Wilson won’t be indicted.

  18. Ametia says:

    I’m guessing the air space in Ferguson is closed too? Gov Nixon is a real POS. He has to know what the grand jury is going to decide. And it ain’t good.

    So sending a message early that you NEGROES protesting will not be tolerated!


  19. Dogs, tear gas, mace, snipers, sundown laws & a State of Emergency b/c black people want the justice system to hold a killer cop accountable.
