Missouri Bund declares State of Emergency

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, WhiteManistan at 1:05 pm by George Smith

The discredited governor of one of the shires of WhiteManistan declares a state of emergency and orders his police force and part of the WhiteManistan National Guard to prepare to put down a rebellion. This is called “protecting the civil rights” of non-WhiteManistan citizens in the affected area.

From the Washington Post:

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) declared a state of emergency Monday in anticipation of possible unrest following the announcement of findings of two separate criminal investigations into the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager killed by a Ferguson, Mo. police officer …

Nixon said in the order he directed the Missouri State Highway Patrol, St. Louis County Police Department, and St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department to “operate as a Unified Command to protect civil rights” and put the St. Louis County Police Department in charge of security in Ferguson related to protest areas and demonstrations.

He also said the adjutant general of the Missouri could “call and order into active service such portions of the organized militia as he deems necessary to protect life and property.”

Nothing inspires confidence more than deployment of the troops and replenishment of tear gas and pepper spray.


In related news, the ultimate good boy and sincere pearl-clutcher, Nicholas Kristof continues his rhetorical wrestling match with the problems of WhiteManistan.

    As an addendum all the preparations and the notice that school superintendents would get notice 24 hours -before- everyone else tells you all you need to know. They’re ready for unrest they know is coming when justice denied is confirmed.

    How did the late great Gil Scott-Heron put it?

    Oh yeah, I remember now.

    “Call in the cavalry to disrupt this perception of freedom gone wild.

    God damn it…first one wants freedom, then the whole damn world wants freedom. ”

    Gotta help stamp out those minorities and put ’em in their place.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/11/19/achieving-transparency-for-the-grand-jurys-decision-on-the-michael-brown-shooting/

    I think everyone knows the grand jury decision and they’re taking as much time as they can to prepare. With regards to Darren Wilson, he can’t do i the field police work anywhere in St. Louis anymore even if exonerated.

    Here’s a key bit: This will make the Michael Brown shooting investigation far more “transparent” than just about any other high-profile criminal investigation. This should be celebrated as a good thing, as we will soon know the facts. But, sadly, it appears that the facts are not really of interest to at least some of Michael Brown’s supporters.

    You need to also see the picture of the good professor in Utah what wrote it.
    I maintain the central question: What is to be done with WhiteManistan?

    Huge swaths of this failing country are as apartheid in every measure that counts as South Africa was when it was a world pariah state. Heck, with Ferguson groups, they’ve even appealed to the UN for help and a human rights team.

    Do you think it will end as townships for the Whitemanistan population then?

    Already have that. There was a long piece in the WaPost this year on how the towns around St. Louis are essentially that. Because of the way Missouri runs, or doesn’t, there are dozens of very little places, carved out by white interests, with no real tax base to support government services. They rely on policing to raise money by the extraction of fines for trivial traffic offenses and misdemeanors on a primarily African-American citizenry. Many of the towns have more outstanding arrest warrants than people who live in them, this the result of people being fined who can’t pay. They believe, mistakenly — although it’s a logical mistake, they will be jailed if they show up for a court date without money. They cannot be jailed for being insolvent. But when they don’t show an arrest warrant is issued and then they are jailed on the next traffic stop or infraction. As a result there was a call for an Dept. of Justice probe.

    You mean like Washington DC?

    “Half of the more than $5.5 million in cash seizures were for $141 or less, with more than a thousand for less than $20.”

    The game is to take even the most trivial assets from the largest pool available. It’s a tactic as old as civilization. Remember my 700 dollar ticket for a seat belt infraction? That happened because during the height of the recession the authorities in Pasadena conveniently decided they were not obligated to send you a notice for payment after the initial ticket. You were left to call them, ask what the fine was, and arrange payment. And if you went past the grace period, you were attached a series of enormous punitive fees, threatened with license revocation, etc.
